Camping fun for young and old
On June 18, our 6-part TV dating program Wildkampeerders started. In this program, twelve singles go on blind dates. Not just any date; the matched singles have to spend 24 hours camping together at a unique camping spot. Very romantic…or not? Ruben and Marin are kicking off – they spent their camping date at Duinrell.
Holiday park Duinrell
In addition to the amusement park and Tikibad, Duinrell is known for their large campsite right next to the park. With more than ten different fields, you decide where you stand – right next to the action or a little further away in the middle of nature. The site is fully equipped: a supermarket, snack bar, pub and even a bowling alley – you have it all. And whoever thinks that Duinrell is primarily intended for children should take a ride on the blood-curdling Falcon roller coaster or the Mad Mill.
Duinrell is located in the middle of Wassenaar. In addition to the pleasant center of this coastal town, there is also plenty to see around Wassenaar itself. For example, you can cycle or (partly) walk the 32 kilometer long estate route. It not only leads you past all kinds of beautiful villas, but also through the rich forest and dune area around the campsite. The Hollandse Duinen National Park is also nearby.
Tips for a date
Are you ‘on a date’ just like Ruben and Marin? Then nearby Gallery Patries van Dorst is a must. In the former coach house of Kasteel de Wittenburg you can admire art by varying contemporary artists – it also gives access to the beautiful, intimate castle gardens. If you’re lucky enough with good weather, head out to Wassenaarse Slag – a quiet beach behind the dunes within cycling distance of the site. The nearby cities of The Hague, Leiden and Delft are ideal for a nice city trip. Whatever you do, end your day with an ice cream at Luciano’s in Wassenaar.
Tips with children
Couples who go on holiday with the whole family can hardly make their children happier than with a trip to Wassenaar. Although there is already plenty to do in Duinrell and on the nearby beach, the area also offers many fun activities and trips. For example, the Monkeybos (Meijendel) is a twenty-minute bike ride away – in this natural playground children can climb and clamber to their fullest, just like a real monkey. Is it another day? Then look for a great museum nearby, such as the Louwman Auto Museum in Wassenaar, or Aquarium SEALIFE and LEGOLAND® Discovery Center in Scheveningen.

Campsites at theme parks in the Netherlands
Do you like camping where the magic happens? Within walking distance of all kinds of exciting attractions, cool shows and beautiful sights? Then these campsites and holiday parks are probably just what you’re looking for.
Lake Resort Beekse Bergen – Hilvarenbeek (North Brabant)
Camping among the wild
Don’t worry: the fact that this holiday park is located right next to the Beekse Bergen does not mean that a lion or tiger suddenly crawls into your awning at night. They remain neatly in the park, which you can easily visit from this campsite. Can’t see all animals? Or take another look at those funny monkeys? Then you just go again the next day!
