Netherlands Camping

There is no shortage of superbly equipped campsites in the Netherlands. The Dutch are avid campers themselves, so you will find campsites throughout the country, each equipped with shops, toilets, showers and other first-class facilities. Camping grounds in the Netherlands are rated on a 1 to 5 star system for their sanitary facilities and other amenities. The Dutch tourist and motoring association, the ANWB publishes an annual guide to camping sites in the Netherlands, Luxemburg and Belgium. This provides full details of star ratings, prices etc. You should expect to pay between £9 and £20 per night at a campsite in the Netherlands, based on two people sharing a tent. You should be aware that many of these campsites are not within easy reach of the centres of towns and cities by public transport, or on foot. In addition to the “official” campsites, you may find that you can camp on certain farms. However, there is a law in the Netherlands that limits the numbers of tents pitched on a farm at any one time.
