Situation and surroundings

Our camping-site is situated in the municipality of the Over-Betuwe between the villages of Oosterhout and Slijk-Ewijk, N.W. of Nijmegen (at abt. 6 km.). The camping-site is situated on the north bank of the river Waal, amid a scenery of slanting flood plains, meandering river dykes and picturesque dyke-dwellings. As a result of this unique situation (in the very heart of the Betuwe), our camping-site has excellent possibilities for cycle- and/or walking trips along the river dyke. Our camping-site is situated along a footpath, called the Linge-path, and the countrywide cycle network. This neighbourhood also offers excellent opportunities to go fishing in the river or to go hiking along the river.

Nijmegen and Arnhem

An interesting and pleasant outing for the whole family is a city walk in the oldest city of the Netherlands, the Roman emperor's town Noviomagum (Nijmegen), maybe in combination with a short visit to Museum park Orientalis, the Africa Museum or the Valkhof museum. A nice alternative is a short walk along the Waalkade, with its numerous pubs and restaurants, or a visit to the Holland Casino. Nijmegen centre is abt. 6 km. from our camping site and is within easy reach via a new cycle-bridge. For young and old a daytrip to the Open-air museum or Burgers Zoo at Arnhem is also an event you will never forget. The two attraction parks visited by over 100.000 visitors a year is one of the most frequented attractions of the country. Arnhem centre is about 13 km. from our camping-site and within easy reach by car or public transport.
