Sheltered touring pitches and special rental accommodations

If you are camping at De Watermolen, you have a terrain of 12.5 hectares at your disposal. A large part of this terrain consists of two lakes. Next to the first lake you'll find various camping fields, where about seventy spacious touring pitches are situated. Each field is ringed by trees and shrubs, so you will always have some shade on your pitch. On the campsite you have a wide choice of special rental accommodations: three water chalets, a water villa, safari tents, a real fire engine and a straw hut.

More than one lake

Especially the two lakes offer a lot of fun. Not only for children, but also for adults. In both lakes you can fish. Part of the smaller lake is set aside for swimmers. This part is also bordered by a beach and a grassy meadow. Around the lake is a forest with hiking trails.

Bistro with pavement cafe

Next to the reception, in the old cowshed, is the bistro. On the attractive pavement cafe you can enjoy a drink or ice cream. During weekends in high season you can also eat there. For fresh bread you don't have to leave the campsite. For your daily shopping you have to be in Opende.

Heerlijk verblijf gehad. In de Coronatijd was het een zeer welkome vakantie. We stonden op veld 4, een mooi ruim veld met een zandbak voor de deur. De kinderen konden zo lekker spelen. Naar het Maisdoolhof in De Wilp geweest. Een aanrader! En de pizza\'s waren op de camping beter dan in Italie! Top. Wij komen graag weer terug, om lekker te zwemmen in het meer en te ontspannen en genieten van de fijne sfeer die hier heerst. Bedankt! En het team + eigenaren, jullie verdienen een dikke pluim voor alle vriendelijkheid!

Een heerlijke camping met een lekker zwemmeer. Mooie fietsomgeving, vriendelijk personeel en goed verzorgd. Uitzonderlijk is de late aankomsttijd. Je mag pas na half 2 arriveren

Heel vriendelijke ontvangst en erg behulpzaam personeel.Jammer dat de plaatsen geen (groene) afscheiding hebben. Zou de kleine groene camping (kgc.nl) ten goede komen. Verrassende mooie fietsomgeving, gezellige bistro met heerlijke pizza\'s. Maar toch moet ik een opmerking over het weinige en krappe sanitair maken. Twee gebouwtjes verspreid over de camping met elk twee (heren en dames) douches en toiletten en slechts elk 1 afsluitbare wascabine is mi te weinig. Bij binnenkomst wordt je nadrukkelijk gevraagd gespreid te douchen. Na installatie begrijp je dat.
