Alan Rogers Review
The Campine is an area covering three quarters of the Province of Antwerp, noted for its nature reserves, pine forests, meadows and streams and is ideal for walking and cycling, while Turnhout itself is an interesting old town. Baalse Hei, a long established, friendly site, has 469 pitches including a separate touring area of 71 large grass pitches (all with 16A electricity, TV connections and shared water point), thoughtfully developed with trees and bushes. Cars are parked away from, but near the pitches. Large motorhomes can be accommodated (phone first to check availability). There is also accommodation to rent.
It is 100 m. from the edge of the field to the modern, heated sanitary building. There is a small lake for swimming with a beach, a boating lake and a large fishing lake (on payment). Entertainment and activities are organised in July and August. Follow the walking trails in the woods (and you will undoubtedly come across some of the many red squirrels) and the nature reserves, or take the pleasant 1.5 km. riverside walk to the next village.

Site is northeast of Turnhout off the N119. Approaching from Antwerp on E34/A12 take Turnhout ring road to the end (not a complete ring) and turn right. There is a small site sign to right in 1.5 km. then a country lane.Link to campsite location map on google
