Bet you'd like to settle down here for a spell. And what a jolly sensible decision that would be, for Camping Betuwe is in a Dutch land of cycling and zoos, theme parks and city sightseeing for all your holiday activity needs – and in splendid setting with stacks to do on site too.
As you may have figured from those spectacular pics just above, Camping Betuwe is a lakeside site, with pitches by the water and loads of peaceful green space around which to roam. Which means there can be watery hours from dawn to dusk: the leisurely options include two lakes to fish or swim in, and a big sandy beach with a waterfront play area.
Betuwe's setting near the town of Gelderland town of Kesteren, surrounded by the Lower Rhine, Waal and Linge rivers, is a short drive from the biking trails of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug National Park, half an hour from one of the biggest zoos in the Netherlands at Royal Burgers', and 35 minutes from Treasure Island at Zeumeren. The lovely old city of Utrect is less than an hour's drive away.
But it'll likely take you some time to get out and about from here. Keeping kids happily occupied is the main mission at this kid- and teen-friendly park, where both types can join in with the well-organised recreation programs, bounce around the giant outdoor trampoline, or test their mettle at the pinball machines, arcade games, pool table and air hockey of the games room.
Rather thoughtfully (as you'll know if you've ever tried to keep a reticent teen entertained on a family hol), the owners have also added a separate recreation room where teenagers can hang out together and watch TV, listen to music or play a few rounds of table tennis.
A restaurant and snack bar are to hand to keep all ages nicely fuelled, and a well-stocked shop sells essential groceries as well as fresh bread and newspapers daily.
Also on site are spotlessly-maintained and heated amenities including showers, toilets, washing-up sinks and a launderette. And, as this is such a kid-friendly place, there's a separate and colourfully cute amenities area for the tiddlers too.

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.

Long days lazing on the beach, having peaceful dips in the lake, or casting about on the fishing lakes should keep the family entertained around the site for some time; after that, it's a short drive from here to several famed Netherlands family and active attractions.
Start off first at Ouwehand Zoo, under 10 minutes away near Rhenen on the Laarschenberg hill at the south-eastern tip of the Utrecht Hill Ridge. Next up should be a day at the zoo of Royal Burgers' in Arnhem, one of the largest zoos in the country and home to over 500 species and 10,000 animals on its 45 hectares.
If you're up for being active, hiking, biking and horse riding trails galore snake around the 6,000 hectares of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug National Park, half an hour's drive away; if you're more of a nature spotter, this is also the second biggest forest site in the Netherlands so has plenty of species to see including badgers, pine martens, bats, dragonflies and over 100 types of bird. (Much) more of the same, as well as the famed Kröller-Müller art museum, is at the Hoge Veluwe National Park within about 40 minutes' drive.
Ancient Utrect, with Cathedral Tower, museum quarter and lively student vibe, is 50 minutes' drive away.
