General

  • Water's edge stays with an adjacent beach
  • Bike, boat and car hire all available
  • Next to the restaurants, cafés and shops of Woudsend

This is a right watery place… Aqua Camping de Rakken (the clue's in the name) is based on the edge of the water, with boat rental for guests and many watery activities easily accessible including sailing, swimming, surfing and fishing. It's among the Frisian  lakes, part of an award-winning marina and adjacent both to green peaceful countryside and the lively village of Woudsend with its restaurants, cafés, shops and supermarket.

If instead of watersporting your tastes are more attuned to a) lounging about or b) landlubbing, ta very much, you should also be chuffed to hear that de Rakken has an adjacent beach, and that there's heaps to do around these parts: bike hire is available on site and the friendly team will be happy to share excursion suggestions.

De Rakken runs a recreational programme for kids during high season and has car rental available at reception. Its amenities include toilets and showers, a launderette, a drying room, disabled facilities and a washing-up area.

The site has free wifi.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

    Local village was quaint and was allowed to walk around inside a real working windmill that is still used for gridning flour.

    Disliked: 

    Motorhome pitch was more or less an Aire, no secure gateage and right next to a public car park.
