In Opende, the westernmost village of the province of Groningen, you will find camping De Watermolen. At this campsite peace, nature and space are the key words. You camp here on a sheltered and car-free terrain. An area offers many cycling possibilities. Very special rental accommodations on the campsite are the water chalets and the straw hut.
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.
