General

  • Small site on the Jadebusen on Germany's north coast
  • Wildlife haven and popular cycling area
  • Adventure playground, barbecue area and bike hire

Ja, the Jadebusen… Jade Bay on the northern German coast between the city of Wilhelmshaven and the municipality of Bremerhaven/Cuxhaven is a bit of a diamond: its wildlife haven setting means it's part of the German Wadden Sea National Parks, and the sea temperature here reaches up to 25C for those who fancy North Sea dips and swims.

Right on the bay and in Wesermarsch is Höpkens Hof & Campingplatz, a small and privately-owned campsite where the owners have made it their mission to give golden customer service to all guests whatever their age (or species: as the friendly owners point out, pets are part of the family and so are most wilkommen on site too).

Your little gems can let loose at the excellent adventure playground (there be tractors) while the bigger folk get dinner sorted at the barbecue area; if you want to be dished up some full-on proper German food (and beer), the town of Varel is about 15 minutes' drive away.

As well as being only a few minutes' drive from the North Sea coast, the area is well-established cycling territory, so hire a bike on site and pedal along to the beach in under ten minutes, or take the wheels out for the day around the many tracks and trails of the Wesermarsch.

Junger aufstrebendender Stern am Campinghimmel 12/08/2017

    Waren schon zwei Mal dort und kommen auf jedenfall wieder. Sehr schöne Lage, zwischen Feldern und Deich. Die Plätze sind pazelliert und teilweise eingezäunt. Strom und Wasser gibt es an Säulen zwischen zwei Plätzen. Es gibt eine Hundewiese, die von den Hunde Besitzern auch rege genutzt wird. Der Spielplatz ist liebevoll angelegt und bietet viel Platz zum toben. Das sollten Urlauber bedenken, denn hier ist kein Seniorenheim. Die Toiletten und Duschen befinden sich in zwei Containern. Für uns völlig ausreichend. Diese werden regelmäßig sauber gemacht. (Es sollten sich auch die Benutzer an Sauberkeit halten) Am besten gefällt uns das familiäre Verhältnis zu den Betreibern. Super nett und freundlich. Sie betreiben und bauen den Platz mit viel Herz auf und ich hoffe, dass sie den Spaß daran nicht verlieren.

    Gute Pazellen

    Disliked: 

    Leider müssen wir einen Stern vergeben, eigendlich hätte dieser Campingplatz Minus 10 Sterne verdient laut unseren Erfahrungen.
    Wir sind durch die guten Bewertungen zu diesem platz gefahren. Als wir angekommen sind fing das ganze Drama schon an, es gibt auf den Toilettencontainer kein Toiletten Papier. Erst als wir für die gesamte Zeit in Vorkasse bezahlen mussten gab es zu geteiltes Toilettenpapier. In ersten Moment wirkte der platzwart (was der Bruder der Inhaberin ist) sehr nett. Wir haben unsere Parzelle bekommen und konnten in Ruhe aufbauen. Später gegen 17 uhr wurden es so laut aufen Platz das man sein eigenes Wort nicht mehr verstehen könnte durch die Kinder und Jugendlichen. Der platzwart hat aber nichts gesagt. Als der Platzwart den Weg war wurde auf den Spielplatz ein Radio in voller Lautstärke ab gemacht so das man in seinem geschlossen wohnwagen kein Wort mehr reden könnte und es wurden die übelsten fekalwörter benutzt. Daraufhin beschlossen wir am nächsten Tag wieder ab zu reisen. Als wir das dem platzwart sagten wurde er pampig und sagte das wir unser Geld von ihn nicht wieder bekommen. So mussten wir Kontakt mit der Inhaberin aufnehmen. Die erreichten wir zwischenzeitlich und worden den ganzen tag von ihr vertröstet. Als wir den endlich mit ihr telefonieren konnten wollte sie unser bezahltes Geld nicht mehr raus rücken. Sie meinte das man im Hotel ja auch nicht einfach sein Geld zurück verlangen kann. So ging es hin und her. Erst als wir ihr mit der Polizei drohten war sie bereit uns die Hälfte von unserem Geld wieder zu geben und verabredeten uns ein Tag später. Wir hatten um 15 Uhr ein Termin mit ihr aufen Campingplatz, wo sie (wem wundert's) nicht erschien. Nur der platzwart war wieder da und er durfte uns das Geld wieder mal nicht geben. Also warteten wir eine Dreiviertelstunde auf sie(was unser Glück war, dass sie noch einen Termin mit jemand anders hatte. Also musste sie ja irgendwann kommen) bis sie endlich kam. Wir wurden keines blickes gewürdigt und siehe da der platzwart hat uns den den Umschlag mit dem geld gegeben. Wir sind stink sauer und haben durch diese Leute drei Tage von unsrem Urlaub verschenkt.
    Wir können diesen Platz keinem weiter empfehlen. Ach so was ich noch vergessen habe zu erwähnen, dieser Platz hat eine Hundewiese die gegüllt würde, leider habe ich es zu spät bemerkt und die Hunde waren schon am Toben. In den Duschkontainern hat man auch kein Platz zum Duschen. So ich glaube das war jetzt alles.

Local attractions

These are peaceful parts, so again, hire a bike and take it out for gentle days seeing the local scenery and the North Sea coast. Two old windmills, museums and the Jaderpark zoo and amusement park are all within easy reach: pick up discount tickets to these from the Höpkens Hof & Campingplatz team.

Varel, about 15 kilometres south of Wilhelmshaven and near the Jade River, has an eighteenth century castle, nineteenth century windmill, a heritage museum and spectacular town and port views from its old water tower (do stick around in the evening for a proper German meal and flagon too).

Also within driving distance is the old city of Oldenburg, 32km from the site, and the town and neighbouring lake of Bad Zwischenahn, within about 33 kilometres.
