Wooded camping site

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 camping site has a small swimming pool on the boundary of the camping site.

Restaurant with extensive choice

The eatery of the camping site 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: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Een no nonsense camping. Schoon en vriendelijk. Heerlijk gezwommen in het zwembad. (Water is koud) Trampoline en tafeltennistafel bij het zwembad. Fijne sfeer op de camping. Naastgelegen bos is prachtig. Ideale camping voor kinderen.

Leuke kindvriendelijke camping. Mooi zwembad. Top recreatieteam. Schoon sanitair. Werkelijk prachtige omgeving om te fietsen. Gaasterland is prachtig.

Een rustige gemoedelijke camping. Een goedonderhouden zwembad (was nog niet geopend) Plaatsen zijn ruim! Sanitair is schoon. Helaas geen winkeltje. De camping ligt in een schitterende omgeving. Wij zijn liefhebbers van wandelen, fietsen en kleine gezellige dorpjes. Dat vindt je hier overal. Wij komen zeker terug. :)

Vriendelijke camping in prachtige omgeving. Mooie ruime plaatsen met in ons geval privé sanitair. De omgeving geeft veel mogelijkheden waardoor wij onze zomervakantie hier gaan doorbrengen. Voor ouders die ook graag met kids op pad gaan een echte aanrader. Wij gaan zeker een kano huren op de camping om vanaf het water de omgeving verder te ontdekken. Het IJsselmeer is op loop/fietsafstand. Het zwembad was nog niet geopend maar zag er keurig uit. Bij het zwembad staat een tafeltennistafel en een trampoline. Wat ons opviel was de saamhorigheid van de kinderen. Iedereen speelt met elkaar. De sfeer op deze camping is zeer vriendelijk. Vanaf de camping loop je zo het Rijsterbos in. Een prachtig bos waar we al wandelend uitkwamen bij het IJsselmeer met een klein strand. Het water is laag dus zeer veilig! In Rijs ook het naastgelegen pretparkje bezocht. Een veilig leuk park wat een combinatie is tussen heerlijk spelen in de speeltuin en verrassende attracties. Een bezoek aan Workum, Hindelopen en Sloten zijn een must! Een half uurtje rijden bracht ons naar Leeuwarden en Sneek. Op een regenachtige dag het natuurmuseum bezocht in Oudemirdum, een aanrader met kinderen!

Helaas viel ons de prijs kwaliteit tegen
6 amp stroom is te weinig.
Een rommelig aan zicht

Het zwembad is erg gedateerd en vooral heel erg koud. Het zwembad is zeker niet verwarmd zoals op de website staat. Ook is het erg rommelig om het zwembad. Er mag weleens geveegd worden.

Sanitair wordt goed schoongehouden, maar is slordig afgewerkt.

Restaurant heeft goed eten.
