A spacious and clean camping site

The entire camping site makes a quiet, clean and spacious impression. The camping pitches are also spacious and well maintained. They have a slightly quirky and natural design and therefore vary in size and location. The camping site attracts many families with children, but also senior guests. The latter visit the camping site predominantly in the early and late seasons.

Lovely swimming pool

Camping Alkenhaer has a lovely swimming pool as well as a safe toddler and children's pool, of course. You can also go for a swim in the outdoor pool Laco Bosbad in Appelscha, located within walking distance of the camping site.

Kids reign supreme

Camping Alkenhaer is a child-friendly camping site. Children can climb on the playground equipment, enjoy a game of soccer, play to their heart's content or go swimming. During school holidays the entertainment team organises great activities a few times per day. 

In the afternoons and early evenings sports or play activities are organised, like baking cookies, children's theatre or children's disco. In the evenings fun and sporty activities are organised for children from the age of eight and their parents, such as 'klootschieten' (ball throwing game), bingo and karaoke.

Special kids menus

The Boshuis is the real heart of the camping site. This restaurant has a number of menus and delicious à-la-carte dishes. There are special kids menus with a surprise for children.

Travelling party: Seniors

Plaats grootte goed. Eigen elektra en water. Ondergrond drassig na regen en sterk plaatsafhankelijk. Zeer goed sanitair. Douche met sep key. Voldoende lang, één temp. goede grootte, antislip en overal handsteunen ook in de gewone toiletten.
Conclusie: Zeer goede camping (senioren) in prachtige omgeving. Fietsen mee! Rustig in voorseizoen. Aanrader.

Hele nette camping, we maakte een rondreis door Drenten en Friesland, de Alkenhaer was de eerste die ons n goed gevoel gaf qua uitstraling, netjes en goed verzorgde camping, en klantgerichtheid en dan bedoel ik niet gaan snoeien als de klant rustig voor zijn caravan zit, je zag dat ze dat al voor elkaar hadden voordat het kampeer seizoen begint! Het internet zou gratis moeten zijn is n puntje voor verbetering! (Zo ouderwets!)
