A smashing time is on hand for small sorts, avian enthusiasts and adventurous types at Campingpark Buntspecht, near Rathenow in the Havelland district of Germany's Brandenburg.
Small sorts first, as they'll likely insist… this is a fab site for families, with critters to chatter at, games to play and room galore to roam. Let kids off the leash first at the zoo area, to greet farm animals and then plaintively enquire why this sort of animal owning isn't available to them back home. Then take them along to intrepidly explore the excellent adventure playground with bouncy castle, while you intrepidly explore the eats and drinks options of the restaurant, thoughtfully set right beside the playground.
The Ferchesar region around the site is full of lakes and forests, and one each of these is right to hand for your small sorts, teens, other halves or budding nature spotters/ woodland wanderers: Campingpark Buntspecht is a lakeside site, in the middle of the woodland of the Westhavelland Nature Park.
Plunge into the lake to cool off on a hot day, fish from the pier, or hire motorboat, pedalo, electric or rowing boats to take out onto these calm Ferchesar lake waters (there's mooring on site too if you're arriving with your own vessel). Guests of all sizes can also hire bikes – or electric bikes – for easy days pedalling around the comely local countryside and nature park, or stay on site for a range of sporty activities like table tennis, volleyball, boccia and badminton.
A kids' club runs daily in high season, and puppet shows as well as guided forest hikes are frequently available for guests; check the events calendar when you arrive to see what's on during your stay.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From A10 take B188 and after 5km, east of Rathenow, take exit Stechow, then right towards Ferchesar. The campsite is signposted on this road.
From Bielefeld - follow the A2 over Bielefeld and Hannover to Magdeburg. Take Exit 73 signposted Burg-Zentrum and continue onto the B1 to Genthin. Turn left onto the B107. Pass Fischbeck and turn left on the B188 signposted Rathenow. Stay on the road and take exit for Stechow-Ferchesar. Continue on the main road and follow signs to the campsite.
This peaceful and protected land is a tiptop spot for birdwatching and nature spotting, among the landscapes of the Westhavelland Nature Park, Brandenburg's biggest as well one of the largest wetland areas in western Europe.
Look out for white-tailed eagles, red kites and waterfowl aplenty around the park's Havel river and marshland setting, as well as migrating birds around Gülper Lake, and mammals such as otters and beavers. Germany's last remaining great bustards live here too if you're eagle eyed enough to catch a glimpse.
Guided walks and cycle routes are accessible within a short distance: the Campingpark Buntspecht team can point you in the right direction for either, and hire out bikes and electric bikes for a modest fee.
Bus tours of Berlin run from the site sometimes in summer (dependent on demand); to get there by your own efforts, an hourly service departs from nearby Rathenow about 20 minutes' drive away, for a journey of just under an hour.
