Peace and nature

On the one hand there is peace and nature for you to enjoy.

And during a walk in the forest you will find yourself in an entirely different world. Far away from the hustle and bustle, you can completely recharge yourself.

Adventure and activity

On the other hand, there are also many options to get actively involved and adventurous. Both at the park in, for example, the new indoor facility 'Skik' but also in the surrounding area. For families with children it is good to know that there are a lot of fun things you can do in the immediate area: Ballorig and Wildlands are a few examples. For the daredevils there is a climbing forest in Grolloo with several routes to climb. The holiday park is centrally located and close to charming cities such like Assen, Emmen, and Groningen.
