Camping Bekhofschans Boijl Reviews
Kids camping Aug 05, 2014
From a distance and when we just arrived, we actually hadn't seen much from the campground, so my opinion about the campground was a little naive. It looked kinda boring, with a small parking lot and small playground. Though the places to put the tents were big. The camp owner showed us our place and it actually was the biggest there probably is here and it's very private. The view is also good. The view is a big field with high grass and the kids like it to play there, if they don't play on the playground. At this time there were a lot of other kids, so they had enough people to play with. What I like, is that on the playground, is a water pump and the kids can also use every toy on the playground, like sand molds, the kart and tractor.
I love the 'leeskeet', which means reading house in Dutch. You can rent books here for free and there is also a microwave and a small store without supervision, they fully trust the campers to pay for what they want and I actually don't think anyone will break that trust. They sell ice creams from a farm in the area and beer from a brewery nearby, also some useful groceries like butter, eggs, milk and pancake mix. No tea or coffee unfortunately. In this 'keet' you can find informations about things to do in the neighborhood, there is informations cheep things and expensive things, things close by and a little further away.
The sanitary is a little small but looks really cute. It's made to look like it's old. It's very clean and they clean it every day. There are only two toilets, 1 cleaning corner, two places to do the dishes and two showers. At the back of the building there is a family shower, a toilet and a basket to clean a baby. Shower coins cost 50ct and warm water cost 20ct.
Nearby there are some small villages, one of them is Noordwolde. In Noordwolde is a supermarket, drugstore, bakery, toy store, a store where you can buy household items, clothes store and a tobacconist where you can send buy books and send cards. There's probably more, but I didn't go to every store. There must be a barbershop and snackbar (this is Dutch, you can buy fries and fried snacks here). In another village, Elsoo, is a small farm with a bigger playground. One activity there is the corn field maze. It's actually not a maze, but a quest hunt in a corn field.
