  • Spacious campsite overlooking the Oude Maas river
  • Next to a marine centre and yacht harbour
  • A short drive to Rotterdam and Kinderdijk

You won't get many of these types of sites on a Netherlands – or anywhere – break. South Holland's Recreation Park De Oude Maas is a modern site with direct access to and rather spesh views over Barendrecht's Oude Maas river – and is right next to a marine centre and yacht harbour to see how the other half live. (Go on, gnash your teeth and wail how one day all these yachts will be yours, all yours.)

It's in splendid locale too for setting off around the area, so use the park as a base for South Holland sightseeing (both Rotterdam and Kinderdijk are a mere short drive away), for fishing or boating on the river, or hiring a bike to cycle along the endless local bike routes; this is the Netherlands after all… Several international events take place nearby: ask the friendly Recreation Park De Oude Maas team for details of anything on when you arrive.

Site facilities include a playground, a reception with information point, and a mini market stocked with daily essentials. There's also a laundry room with coin-operated washing machines and dryers, and a large amenities block with showers, toilets, disabled facilities and baby changing.

    The bathrooms are nice and you can rent really good bikes for cheap. The first two employees we dealt with were so kind, and helpful. It's well lit and well taken care of.


    We got caught in a very bad storm and some of our clothes were soaking, we asked if we could hang them up in the laundry room. The two employees we dealt with were incredibly rude. I saw clothes hanging there everyday but because I wasn't going to pay 8 euros to do a load of laundry she said I couldn't use it and she also argued people didn't want to see clothes hanging in the room... that's what a laundry room is for!?? Plus we had maybe 5 items of clothing. She argued with me saying it was not expensive to use her laundry and that's what "Normal people" do. I finally said "I am paying for
    Land on your campground and I am asking for help, please help me". She finally allowed us to and it was no problem for anyone. Both her and her colleague are the reason we will never come back and the reason we won't recommend. So sorry, but that was very rude.

    Beautiful scenery camping right by the river.
    Easy and cheap to hire bicycles and take in the local area.
    Basic but clean facilities.
    Good if you want to 'get away from it all' - quiet area with few nearby amenities


    Couldn't find anywhere to get drinking water.
    Couldn't access the WiFi.
    No hair dryers in the bathroom - if you are camping without electricity, this is a shame
    We initially picked the wrong spot to camp and were intimidated by an elderly resident of the site. Instead of simply informing us we were in the wrong place, the man stood taking photos of us and only when we asked what he was doing, did he (aggressively) tell us we were in the wrong place. Of course, it was a mistake and we moved immediately. Reception did not seem to mind that we made this mistake but perhaps the residents could be a little more neighbourly...

Local attractions

Recreation Park De Oude Maas has direct access to the Oude Maas river, a tidal distributary of the Rhine with recreation and nature spotting opps along its banks. There's direct access to the harbour next door: as suggested, do go and gnash your teeth about how the other half live...

Have a bike ride to nearby Kinderdijk: it might be a mere village, but it has a mighty 19 windmills (the biggest group of old windmills in all the Netherlands) and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997. You might recognise them when you see them: the windmill cluster is one of the best-known sights in the country.

Also famed in the local area are the town of Gouda (yes, the cheesy place), the old city of Dordrecht, dating back to the 13th century, and the excellent city of Rotterdam, one of the biggest port cities in the world.
