Camping de Tabaksschuur: Tourers welcome

General

  • Peaceful site on the edge of Elst in Utrechtse Heuvelrug National Park
  • A half-hour drive to Utrecht and 40 minutes to Arnhem
  • Landscaped park with restaurant, tennis court, play area and bike hire

If you’re eying up the Utrechtse Heuvelrug National Park as an outdoor holiday destination, where better to base yourselves than a park that’s centrally located within the park? Plan a stay at Camping de Tabaksschuur, in the village of Elst, and you’ll be within easy reach of all sorts of excellent walking and bike routes plus a good cluster of family days out.

The scenic views start right there at the park, which has been carefully landscaped and planted with lots of native greenery. There’s history to the place, too – the family business has been running since 1972, but the two well-preserved old tobacco barns at the centre of the site date back further than that and give a good nod to the area’s heritage.

Heading out to explore the surroundings? Start with the Amerongse Berg nature reserve, a few minutes’ walk away (or accessible on a great mountain bike route from just outside the site), then get set to spend days biking or walking through scenery of forests, rivers, dykes and pretty villages. Rhenen, Veenendaal, Wageningen and Wijk bij Duurstede are all within cycling distance for a bit of urban time, or you could drive up to Utrecht in about half an hour for some city culture.

This is a peaceful and laidback site that’s popular with young families and more mature travellers – it’s got a play area, tennis court, games room and pétanque court but if you’re after lots of on-site activities you’ll want to look elsewhere. A bar (with snacks available), bike hire and a launderette are also provided, and it’s a short walk to shops and places to eat in the village.

Local attractions

Mix a bit of history into your days of exploring the scenery with outings to Amerongen Castle (five minutes’ drive), Duurstede Castle (20 minutes) and Soelen Castle, or visit the Airborne Museum at Hartenstein to see tanks and other memorabilia from World War II. Ouwehands Zoo is 10 minutes away for kid-pleasing days, or it's a half-hour drive to the excellent Burgers' Zoo, where you can see animals from all over the world in a series of themed ecosystem areas.

There are several small towns around that are worth a stop as you roam, but you might also like to consider some time exploring the streets and museums of Arnhem (40 minutes) or checking out the Miffy Museum, DomUnder and Sonnenborgh Observatory in Utrecht (half an hour).

Once you’ve had your fill of outings, walks or bike rides for the day, seek out one of the local aquatic areas to cool off: Henschotermeer beach (20 minutes’ drive) or the Leersum forest pool (10 minutes) are both lovely places for an open-air dip.
