Travelling party: Family with children <4 years

Een prachtige camping voor jong en oud. Wij vermaken ons super goed, de kindjes kunnen lekker spelen. En wij kijken toe! Dat noem ik nog eens écht vakantie. Wat ook geweldig is zijn de gezinsdouches, perfect voor ons met 2 kleintjes. En ook nog eens een geweldige ruim opgezette plaatsen. Niet hutjemutje.

Wat een fijne eigenaars. Ontzettend vriendelijk, niets is te veel. Ze zijn de camping aan het opknappen. Alles wat ze aanpakken staat er prachtig bij. Het is schoon, verzorgd en een schitterende omgeving.

Heb sinds april 2017 een stacaravan op deze mooie camping. Net ook nieuwe eigenaars, die alles weer goed op de rit zetten. Mijn kleinkinderen genieten ook volop als ze mee gaan.

Wij zijn met Hemelvaart geweest. Mooie natuurcamping met grote kampeerplekken. Sanitair is mooi, nieuw en schoon. De douches zijn heerlijk. Achterop de camping 2 zandvlaktes met watertafel waar onze kleinste heerlijk heeft kunnen spelen. Eigenaar aardige mensen. Was deze periode druk maar gezellig. Kom er zeker terug.

Prachtige camping. Ruime plaatsen in het bos. Mooi en schoon toilet gebouw. Voor kleine kinderen ideaal. Watertafel op de zandvlakte. Mooie omgeving om te wandelen en te fietsen. Vriendelijk personeel.

Travelling party: Couple

Tot 2014 was dit een geweldige camping, maar toen kreeg het helaas een nieuwe eigenaar.
10 jaar op deze camping gestaan waarvan 8 jaar met een seizoensplaats maar nu zijn we blij dat we er weg zijn.
Het sanitair is nog nooit zo vies geweest.
De kantine is in de avond nooit meer open na 19:00 uur
In het vernieuwde toiletgebouw zitten boilers met een te kleine capaciteit, dus als het even iets drukker wordt, moet je douchen en afwassen met lauw water.
Het animatie-team is matig tot slecht.
Klachten worden niet serieus genomen.
Bij klachten word al snel gezegd, dan rot je toch op.
Je wordt door de nieuwe eigenaar en personeel keihard voorgelogen.
In de avond is er soms niemand van het personeel aanwezig.
Er zijn ook voordelen:
Omdat er momenteel veel mensen weggaan is er wel plek zat :)

De camping heeft in januari nieuwe eigenaren gekregen. Het toiletgebouw is wat gedateerd maar wordt super schoon gehouden. Een heerlijke camping in een prachtige omgeving

Prima ontvangst. Mooi terrein. Sanitair duidelijk minder. Jammer.
Geheel zag er minder verzorgd uit.
