Camping Emmen: View of the play area


  • Family-friendly site a 15-minute walk from Schoonebeek, in Drenthe
  • Plopsa Indoor Coevorden 10 minutes’ drive; Wildlands Zoo 20 minutes
  • Swimming pool, playground and kids’ club; barbecues and takeaway

If the kids have been good all year and you want to treat them to a holiday that’s all (or, at least, mostly) about them, consider staying at Camping Emmen, a leafy holiday park on the outskirts of the village of Schoonebeek (15 minutes’ walk or five minutes’ drive), close to the German border.

There’s so much to do on site, chances are your offspring won’t know where to start, though the outdoor pool is probably a pretty safe bet – after all, who doesn’t like to splash about on a hot summer’s day? There is also a playground with climbing structures and swings, plus go-karts and pedal cars so the kids can roam around the site in style. In high season, the site also organises a diverse entertainment programme for young guests, with activities ranging from face painting to treasure hunts.

While the kids make friends and live their best lives, the adults can have a cheeky drink on the paved terrace, with plenty of shaded seating from where you can keep an eye on the playground. And when your belly starts to rumble, you can choose from a menu that includes meatballs, pizzas and schnitzels, order a takeaway or fire up the barbecue. For provisions, there’s a well-stocked shop in Schoonebeek, and the owners can also direct you to a farmers’ market.

There’s plenty to explore in this green corner of Drenthe province, and the site (conveniently) has a bike-hire facility. You can cycle along the Stieltjeskanaal or reach Bargerveen Nature Reserve (40 minutes by bike), with its flat, watery landscape.
