- Family-friendly Heumen campsite with well-maintained facilities
- Beside woodland filled with cycle routes: hire bikes on site
- Riding stables 200 metres away with private and group lessons
What lovely – and Dutch – landscape… family-friendly Recreatiecentrum Heumens Bos in the Heumens municipality is beside wide swaths of scenic woodland and Dutch polders dotted with characteristically Netherlands features like windmills, locks and dikes – you'll most certainly require a camera.
You'll most certainly require a bike too, so it's handy that cycle hire is available on site to pedal the kilometres' worth of riding routes crisscrossing the local woodland. Go-kart hire is available too, along with a ping pong table, tennis court and several play areas, both indoors and outdoors and for all ages.
Heumens Bos also has an outdoor pool and a paddling pool, a restaurant with a terrace, and a shop stuffed with essentials, local items and souvenirs. The site has free wifi.

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.

Cycling and cantering are two of the main activities around Recreatiecentrum Heumens Bos, at the biking trails around its local woodland and at the riding stables 200 metres away, where private lessons and group tuition are both available.
Nearby Nijmegen on the Waal river is the oldest town in the Netherlands, celebrating a whopping 2,000 years back in 2005. Several decent museums are among its many sights: have a look at the Africa Museum on the continent's art and culture, the Valkhof museum detailing the city's Roman past as well as its medieval history and modern art, and the House of the History of Nijmegen, a free museum telling the tale of the town.
The 12-acre Gardens of Appeltern are also recommend by the Heumens Bos team, along with the outdoor artificial ski slope in Wijchen and the forestside golf course back at Nijmegen.
