Het Beekbergerwoud, 2,5 km from the campsite
Just south of Apeldoorn lies the Beekbergerwoud. This was once the last primeval forest in the Netherlands.

A 2.5 kilometer walk has been set out in the area. You wind your way through a beautiful, varied landscape that largely consists of grasses, reeds and trees. Did you know that there is a small watchtower that you can climb and from where you have a beautiful view over the area? Many of the paths consist of wooden decking and stepping stones are regularly incorporated in the path. Highly recommended to do a round!

De Posbank, 26 km from the campsite
Winding roads slowly take you up through a dark forest, the wind makes the light-colored foliage rustle softly and various birds sing their song. You keep getting a little higher, up and down a hill, until the trees suddenly make way for huge moors dotted with purple flowers.

As far as the eye can see, you look out over hills, forests and heathland. You are at the Posbank near Arnhem.

Boom 3.jpg IJsselvallei

De IJsselvallei, 33 km from the campsite
The narrow IJssel meanders from Arnhem to the IJsselmeer. Historic Hanseatic towns, agricultural areas, river nature and forests alternate along the banks.

Thanks to the alternation of dry and wet, many birds and plants feel at home here. Sickle clover, mud green, loosestrife and stonecrop benefit from the fertile river clay. Bramblewren, corncrake and reed bunting sing the highest song.
