Doesn't this green Dutch-based site look just tiptop? And even more Netherlands fably, it's on an island too – the wildlife and cycling haven of Zeeland's Tholen, the peninsula of two isles separated by the bay of Krabbenkreek.
Your scenic and peaceful berth can be bedded down in after active days in the site surroundings, as Camping Gorishoek is in the Oosterschelde or Eastern Scheldt region, a part of the Nethlerlands famed for its outdoor activities on water and land. The Oosterschelde makes up the biggest national park in the country too, so get prepped for easy access to biking, hiking, nature spotting, sailing and scuba diivng among its saltwater, mudflats and meadow surroundings.
(And if you'd rather have city sightseeing? One of the oldest urban centres in the Netherlands, Bergen op Zoom, is within half an hour's drive, or just over an hour by bike on a mainly flat route via Postweg.)
The leisure facilities back at base are plentiful too… Start your leisurely self off with a splash in the lovely big pool with waterslide (a site just isn't a site without a pool, opine the wise team), then take your damp offspring along to coo at the Gorishoek rabbits, chickens, goats, ducks and pot-bellied pigs, all around to meet and pet at the site zoo.
From Mondays to Saturdays, kids can go along to the Beachcomber space, to meet up with the team amicably tasked with junior entertainment. Activities for adults are available too on weekdays during high season – or you might just care to sink down with a drink on the terrace while keeping an eye on the kids swinging about at the playground.
Food to suit all ages is at Smaek, the small site restaurant serving meals from breakfasts to dinners, including what one former guest says was the best plate of chips and salad she's ever had...

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.

The site is on the island of Tholen, in the middle of the Oosterschelde, an area of the Zeeland region known for its vast landscapes, cycling and watersports.
The 370 square kilometres of the national park include around 125 kilometres of shoreline, making up salt waters famed for scuba diving because of the number of species unique to the region. You could also go sailing or hiking, seek porpoises among the park's creeks and mudflats, or take a guided tour to forage for shellfish including mussels, oysters and periwinkles (all are plentiful in the area, but a license is needed to gather them).
Other recommended options are to cycle, hike or horse ride around the Brabantse Wal, the sandy plateau running along the Zeeland border and the Belgian province of Antwerp. Or drive for just under an hour to reach other the popular watersports spots in the region of the Veerse Meer lagoon and the town and waters of Kamperland.
The city of Bergen op Zoom, one of the oldest in the Netherlands, is about 20 kilometres away.
