Erholungsgebiet DoktorSee ****

General information
Guide price €25.20

Not far from the town of Rinteln, on the Weser river around the Doktorsee lake, lies the Doktorsee recreation area. This hilly landscape with alternating agricultural and nature areas, many small towns and villages with picturesque half-timbered houses, has a friendly atmosphere. Especially in spring and early summer when the fresh greenery of the trees and shrubbery along the winding Weser river brightens up the landscape.

First impression

The first impression of the Erholungsgebiet DoktorSee is overwhelming. This is because of the enormous proportions of the grounds. Around the lake are a number of holiday cottages and mobile homes. There is also a marina, a motor boat club and a church. The grounds are well kept and the pitches are average in size and mostly located directly by the water. A portion of the pitches are so-called comfort pitches with all the necessary amenities. The camping site is dog-friendly (special dog showers).


Obviously, you can bring your own tent, caravan or camper van, or you can rent accommodation: holiday cottages, lodges, chalets and apartments. There are ample, recently renovated (2016) sanitary facilities for guests.


It goes without saying that everything here takes place on and around water. There are slides and lots of floating play equipment near a long and narrow beach. You can enjoy swimming, boating and aqua cycling on the lake. You can also cast a line from a quiet spot on the banks. For the youngest camping guests, there are various safe and clean playgrounds and a comprehensive entertainment programme. Also present on the grounds: a mini-golf course and volleyball courts.

Wij vonden dit een SCHANDALIGE camping met z\'n 4 sterren!
De wegen zijn onbegaanbaar, zeker met caravans, maar ook voor de auto\'s en fietsen. We hadden een \'zogenaamd\' waterpunt : een oud vervallen muurtje met 2 kranen erin waarin het gras en mos tussen de voegen van de totaal kapotte tegels groeide. Dit punt was voor ons 100 meter lopen en diende voor minstens een paar honderd mensen. We zijn 1 keer gaan kijken waar de afwas gedaan moest worden ( in een donker sousterrain) veel te klein en van een goorheid waar je maag bij omdraaide. Sanitairgebouwen waren op zich netjes ingericht, maar met het zwerfvuil van weken en kalkaanslag van jaren. Vuilnis kon je alleen bij de receptie kwijt, voor ons zeker een kilometer verderop. Nog nooit zo\'n SCHANDALIGE CAMPING meegemaakt !!

De kampeerplaatsen zijn erg verschillend. Sommige zijn piepklein en de caravans staan op mekaar gepakt, andere zijn royaal, met prachtig zicht en omgeving. Algemeen: heerlijke vakantie gehad!!

Wij hebben nog nooit op een camping gestaan waar we door Duitse jeugd werden uitgescholden voor Jude en ich hase Niederlander, die 's nachts tegen onze spullen pisten en die naar later bleek 's nachts onze banden van onze campers hebben leeg late lopen. Er is 's nachts geen controle aanwezig, tenminste wij hebben die niet gevonden. Dronken jongelui die met vuur spelen, is heel eng als je in je bed ligt.
