A rural campsite in the Gaasterland district, with its woods, water and pastures.
Wood Camping De Waps is situated in the middle of the Gaasterland district, bordering a Staatsbosbeheer (Dutch Forestry Commission) nature reserve.
Camping De Waps has secluded, grassy pitches, and, as its name already suggests, the campsite is entirely located in the woods. The pitches are large and offer ample privacy and shelter from the sun and wind. Therefore, it is possible to camp in a tent or caravan in the most rural way. For campers in tents, Camping De Waps offers unique pitches which are situated on terps.
De Waps is a campsite that is almost too large to be called a Small Green Campsite. However, the pitches on this campsite are so picturesque that we can truly be a green campsite for you.
The campsite has heated sanitary facilities with solar collectors for heating the water. We have 5 huts available for hikers, and a playground and a playing field for children. We sell fresh rolls every morning and our eating-house is open during the high season.
Furthermore, it is possible to hire a bicycle or a children’s kart at the campsite.
The slanted fields of the campsite fully blend in with the Gaasterland district, where woods, water and pasture go together. The Gaasterland district is located in the south-west area of the province of Friesland. Its scenery will make you wonder whether you are really in Friesland or not. The Gaasterland district offers many opportunities for cycling or walking through idyllic, old Frisian villages in a hilly setting.
At a distance of 1 mile from the campsite you will find the IJsselmeer, with its sandy beaches, where you can take a lovely swim on warm days. The vicinity also offers: a tennis court (0.3 mile), a 9 hole golf course (1 mile), an amusement park (2 miles), boats and canoes for hire (5 miles), nature, peace and quiet (0 miles).
