Alan Rogers Review

Alkenhaer is a pleasant and peaceful family campsite near Appelscha in the southeast part of Friesland, and close to the province of Drenthe. Located between the beautiful natural parks of Drents-Friese Wold and Fochteloërveen, the focus is very much on space and nature. The 240 pitches, 100 for touring, are dispersed over spacious marked fields and are all equipped with 10A electricity. The fields only take a few units, making camping here cosy. Shade is provided by mature trees. There are separate hardstanding areas for mobile homes and large caravans. On-site amenities include a large football field, a volleyball court, a well equipped playground and a children’s pool.

In high season, there are a variety of activities organised by a professional team. Off site, Appelscha is a delightful village dating back to the 13th century. The fortunes of the site are linked to the peat trade, and in the 19th century coastal erosion led to the establishment of a large forest. Thanks to this forest and the sand dunes which rise beyond it, Appelscha has become an important holiday centre.
