A pleasant, wooded family campsite in a rural location in the north of the country, Familiecamping De Vossenburcht has 370 pitches of which many are seasonal, with 100 available for tourers and some accommodation for hire. They are level, a few in the open but mainly among the trees, and with electrical connections available. This is one of the most beautiful parts of Overijssel where you can still enjoy the beautiful forests and farmland. Nearby are moors, fens and attractive old farmhouses. The village of IJhorst has a few shops whilst the neighbouring towns of Meppel, Hoogeveen and Zwolle offer a wider choice of shops, bars and restaurants.
Nearby, the recreation lake of De Zwarte Dennen also has a mountain bike trail, a jogging track and several hiking trails. The less energetic will find a wide range of possible excursions by car. You can spend the day punting at Giethoorn, visiting the pony park at Slagharen and the zoo at Emmen. The famous IJselmeer (formerly the Zuider Zee) is an easy drive to the west, whilst the German border is a similar distance to the east.
