Alan Rogers Review

Camping De Watermolen is located on the border of the two Dutch provinces of Friesland and Groningen. This site has 70 spacious pitches, including comfort pitches with 16A electricity, located near the well appointed toilet block and the lake. The standard pitches are located in the older part of the site and are slightly smaller with 4/6A electricity. There are also some hardstanding pitches overlooking the lake. Safari tents are available to rent. In the centre of the site is a recreation lake for swimming with a zip wire and a shallow area for young children. For anglers there is a well stocked fishing lake.

The southeast area of the Groningen region is ideal for walking and cycling, with miles of dedicated trails close at hand. Or, you can rent a canoe to visit a number of delightful waterside villages.


Two heated toilet blocks, one with family room and facilities for babies. Launderette. Bistro/restaurant. Shop for essentials in reception. Playgrounds. Tennis. Lake with beach and zip wire. Football and volleyball. Fishing. WiFi.
