Wooded campsite

Camping Rijsterbos lies directly on the edge of the woods with the same name. The pitches are reasonably spacious and numbered, but not demarcated. Each pitch has its own water and electricity connection. A limited number of pitches have rental private sanitary facilities. The campsite has a small swimming pool on the boundary of the campsite.

Restaurant with extensive choice

The eatery of the campsite is a popular feature. It is located directly at the entrance and has a spacious terrace. Of course, you can sit inside to enjoy a snack, the daily menu or one of the pizzas. You can also order something from the menu, of course. During the day you can sit on the renovated terrace for a cup of coffee and cake or a refreshing drink.

Unique woodland

Rijs is located on the edge of the Rijsterbos and close to the IJsselmeer. The woodland, measuring a total of 72 ha, was planted in the seventeenth century and today consists of a diverse deciduous woodland with numerous old oaks and beeches. The woodland is a unique spot for birds, who use the Rijsterbos as resting place on their migration route. The badger is also a permanent resident and has a number of setts in the area.

Travelling party: Seniors

Mooie camping met veel schaduw en prima sanitair. De camping ligt in een mooie omgeving, met veel fiets knooppunten, maar je kan er ook goed wandelen. Prachtige omgeving, het Gaasterland.

Na te zijn aangekomen,beviel de plaats totaal niet naar de receptie gegaan en een comfort plaats genomen,ook al een drama zit je tegen een electrahuis aan te kijken, slecht onderhouden veldjes, men gaat ook steeds meer sta caravans neer zetten waarbij de kampeer veldjes op de 2e plaats komen,naast ons waren ze met bestrating bezig,van een sta caravan lekker voor je rust na klagen is men hier mee gestopt alleen het sanitair was voldoende,hier komen wij dus nooit meer, deze camping verdiend 2sterren max.

Een leuke kindvriendelijke camping in een prachtige omgeving. Erg vriendelijke medewerkers! Sanitair op het kinderveld zou een opknapbeurt kunnen gebruiken, maar word wel goed schoongemaakt. Zwembad is prima, niet verwarmd (te koud water voor onze jonge kinderen).

Rustige camping op een hele mooie locatie. Velden ruim en zonnig. Wij hebben gekozen voor plaats met privesanitair. Op dit veld ook een leuk speeltoestel voor de kleintjes. Zwembad is netjes maar niet verwarmd. Trampoline en tafeltennistafel bij zwembad. Veel gewandeld in naastgelegen bos
De kinderen waren dol op de hertenwei op 5 minuten lopen van de camping. Wij komen snel nogeens terug om de omgeving verder te ontdekken.

Een leuke camping op een mooie locatie. De sfeer is gemoedelijk en rustig. Bos direct naast de camping. Wij hebben fietsen gehuurd op de camping en zo een klein gedeelte van de omgeving gezien. Prachtig! De kinderen hebben vaak gezwommen en zich verder prima vermaakt in speeltuintje en op de trampoline. Sanitair is schoon en netjes. Gasten zijn van jong tot oud. Een camping en omgeving om nogmaals wat langer te bezoeken.

Gezellige nette camping. Ideaal uitgangspunt voor fietsen en wandelen. Vele bijzondere dorpjes in de nabije omgeving. Na een actieve dag steeds heerlijk gezwommen. Sanitair is schoon. Aanrader!

Travelling party: Seniors

Een heerlijke camping in een fantastische omgeving. Ruime zonnige plaatsen. De sfeer op de camping is fijn voor jong en oud. Wij hadden prachtig weer dus heerlijk gefietst en savonds baantjes getrokken in het zwembad. Wat een luxe! De omgeving is zeer afwisselend. Leuke plaatsjes en Sneek en Leeuwarden zijn zeker ook een bezoek waard.

Echte gezinscamping in mooie omgeving. Ruime plaatsen. Zwembad is mooi maar koud. Leuk pretpark dichtbij voor kids tot jaar of 10. Camping oogt af en toe wat rommelig maar de sfeer is perfect. Ideale camping voor gezinnen die ervan houden om er samen op uit te trekken. Bos en strand op loopafstand. Wij komen zeker terug!
