Camping de Ikeleane (Frisian for Oak Lane) has a rural setting, 14 km. southeast of the pleasant town of Drachten. This is a much loved part of Friesland, where forests alternate with dunes and heathland. De Ikeleane is a good base for exploring this Frisian countryside on foot or bicycle (bicycle and go-kart hire on site) and has wonderful views over the countryside. This is a well equipped site with 200 pitches, 79 for touring, all with 6/10A electricity, and 67 with water and drainage. Children will enjoy the football and volleyball pitches and the indoor play barn. The entertainment team organises a variety of activities, including ballooning, cycling and volleyball matches. Campers have free access to the public swimming pool at Bakkeveen.
Rental accommodation here includes a number of new luxurious chalets. Alternatively, a number of traditional wooden caravans are available. Drachten merits a visit. Formerly important for its peat industry, the town has an attractive centre and is probably best known for its pioneering traffic scheme, whereby the removal of almost all traffic lights and signs has led to a significant reduction in accidents.
