RCN Holiday Park Het Grote Bos is situated in the triangle formed by Doorn, Driebergen and Maarn in the middle of woodland. The area around the campsite is very diverse. On one side is a river landscape with historical towns and old castles and on the other side is hilly woodland (De Utrechtse Heuvelrug).

Over winding pathways to your pitch

The large campsite is located in the middle of woodland. You reach your pitch via winding pathways. The camping pitches are at least 100 m2 in size and you can opt for a shaded pitch. There are special pitches for cycling campers and comfort pitches with water supply and drainage.

On the campsite, adjacent to the camping pitches, there are also safari tents, Finnish bungalows and holiday cottages. The sanitary facilities are well maintained and on several spots on the campsite you will find Thetford cleaning machines: a type of dishwasher for your chemical toilet.

Bowling, crossing and survival running

The campsite has a large number of facilities for young and old. There is a natural pond, fossil field and several playgrounds. For sports enthusiasts there is a soccer and a basket ball field, a tennis court and jeu-de-boule pitch, a table tennis table, mini golf court, bowling alley, bicycle cross track for children and skelter and bicycle rental.

From April to October and during school holidays there is a recreation team. The heated outdoor pool with slide in located in the middle of the campsite and is surrounded by a lawn. Also fun: In the Grote Bos you can take part in a great deal of survival fun. By climbing, hanging and swaying you can follow an exciting obstacle course, which will lead you through the woods and over water.

Nur 2 Nächte zum Besuch von Utrecht von Apeldoorn. Abgelegenen und sehr dunkler Stellplatz.

Ze zorgen altijd voor een plekje. Ligt midden in de Utrechtse Heuvelrug zo wandelen en fietsen overal naar toe.

We hadden een mooie plaats met privé sanitair wat er goed uit ziet maar wel aan de krappe kant is. De campinggasten met een vaste (seioens-)plaats rijden te hard over de camping. Dus let goed op uw spelende kinderen. Verder een mooie camping in het bos. Heerlijk wandelen of fietsen in de omgeving. Ik miste de hondenuitlaatplaats. Midden in zo\'n groot bos moet dat toch te realiseren zijn. Vriendelijk personeel, goed restaurant, snackbar, wereldwinkel etc..

heerlijk voor een weekend weg, maar in het hoogseizoen denk ik te druk voor ons

Afgelopen maand 5 nachten op deze camping gekampeerd op een veld met privé sanitair. Lekker dichtbij de receptie, restaurant, snackbar etc.. Sanitair ruimte is goed, schoon maar wel erg klein. Ruimte om je aan- of uit te kleden is er nauwelijks. Fijn dat de hond welkom is maar ruimte om haar uit te laten is er nauwelijks. Ik miste het hondenuitlaat- renveld. Verder wordt er met name door gasten met vaste plaatsen hard gereden met de auto. De camping is groot, dus de afstanden ook. Begrijpelijk, maar onverantwoord. Overal spelen kinderen en kunnen zomaar oversteken met alle risico\'s van dien. Mooi gelegen camping, prachtige bossen om te wandelen, fietsen etc.. We zijn weer heerlijk even tot rust gekomen.

fijne grote plaatsen in het bos, met veel tussenruimte tussen de plaatsen

Mannes Harmsen, on this campsite in July 2021


Travelling party: Seniors

Begin Juli hier gecampeerd en ondanks dat het een enorme grote camping is heb je niet dat gevoel doordat de camping verdeeld is in kleinere velden.

Mannes Harmsen, on this campsite in June 2021


Travelling party: Seniors

Het is een hele grote camping maar door de indeling van de kampeervelden heb je daar geen erg in dat het zo groot is, maar eerder gezellig en kleinschalig.
Goed en schoon sanitair en genoeg watertappunten.
Lekker gegeten in het restaurant.
Mooie wandel en fiets omgeving en genoeg te koop in de kampwinkel dus je hoeft de camping niet af voor boodschappen.

Helemaal niks op aan te merken.
