Alan Rogers Review

This is a simple, family-run campsite on the bank of the River Aller in a wooded location in Lower Saxony. It's a peaceful area with dense woods home to red squirrels and deer, heather-carpeted heathland, slow-moving waterways, windmills and tree-lined country lanes - perfect, unspoilt scenery for cycling and walking along the local trails.

The neighbouring town of Schwarmstedt is handy for shops and various amenities, while Walsrode (20 km) has a large bird park, not to mention grazing animals and an adventure playground. Hanover is a fascinating day out, with an important zoo, and Celle is one of Germany’s most interesting historical, half-timbered towns. In stark contrast is the Bergen-Belsen Memorial, with graves and memorials commemorating those who died in the concentration camp - including Anne Frank.


There are 100 touring pitches, mostly level, grassy and well demarcated by trees mature enough to provide shade in summer. Pitches are in the open or under trees, with electricity connections (10A) and water taps nearby and a field for groups and tents. Heated sanitary block with free showers and washbasins in cabins. Baby room. Washing machine and dryer. Bar (all season) and restaurant with terrace (seasonal). Bread supplies. Three mobile homes for hire. Bicycle hire. WiFi (charged).
