General

  • Kid-friendly family-run site set among a green wildlife haven
  • Zoo, theme park and racing circuit within 30 minutes' drive
  • Nature pond, petting zoo, playground, inflatable slide and trampoline

If you’re coming with kids, you’ll be lucky to even catch a glimpse of them during a stay here, for this family-run and incredibly child-friendly site is set up with all sorts to make a grownup stay here as restful as humanly possible – and a littlie's stay as fun.

Set among a greenly scenic wildlife haven, Camping Midden Drenthe is surrounded by fields, forests, meadows, moors and megaliths, as well as small villages, sand dunes and stream valleys; it’s also right next door to a petting zoo, a playground and a dam for fishing, and you’re a short drive from the Drents-Friese Wold National Park and its many walking, cycling and horse riding routes, around 15 minutes by car to the TT Circuit Assen.

Adults will definitely get to have some well-deserved quality downtime here, as the site is furnished with everything a kid could ever want to keep them occupied for weeks: a giant trampoline, inflatable slides, a big playground full of kit to clamber and swing on, swathes of grassy green space for them to frolic freely in and – perhaps best of all – a petting zoo and the paddepoel, a nature pond filled with toads, frogs and slimy salamanders.

Other activities for the enjoyment of all include pétanque on site or fishing at the dam next door. If you fancy taking to two wheels, the site also has a bike hire service, so should you ever tire of lolling around with a nice easy novel under the dappled shade of one of the site’s many mature trees, then you can quite easily get out and explore your surrounds.

Amenities include toilets and showers, with some suitable for guests with reduced mobility, as well as baby bath tubs, kids' showers and a launderette. There's also a free wifi service throughout the site.

The shops, restaurants and inns of Assen are about 20 minutes’ drive away, or there are more options over in Emmen and Hoogeveen, both within 40 minutes’ drive.

Local attractions

This is a properly fab locale with lots of kid-friendly attractions in the local surrounds; spot little pointy-hatted men over at goblin-themed amusement park Kabouterland Exloo, whizz around on white knuckle rides and giant slides at Drouwenerzand Attractiepark B.V., or spy monkeys, elephants and other wild critters from jungle-themed boat rides and suspended rope bridges at WILDLANDS Adventure Zoo Emmen, all within 30 minutes’ drive of Camping Midden Drenthe.

Hire a bike on site for a pedal through the Dwingelderveld National Park and you’ll come across a varied landscape of heatherfields, forests flocks of sheep (and lots of them), megalithic monuments and pretty villages, as well as a monument, memorials and a museum dedicated to former World War II transit camp, Westerbork.

If you quite like the idea of a pamper during your hols (in fact, you might find you’ll need one after all that cycling you’ll have been doing), then the little village of Bad Nieuweschans, famed in the region for its healing spring water, is around 50 minutes’ drive away and has a resort with all manner of wellness treatments on its menu.
