Come and enjoy a fun, restful holiday with the kids at our green, family friendly campsite in Vaassen, in the heart of the Veluwe National Park. Visitors of all ages feel at home at our well-kept, family friendly campsite. Owners Bart and Kirsten are real family people and know like no one else what makes an enjoyable holiday. You will find no shortage of facilities, activities or entertainment. We’d love to welcome you!
Large, green pitches with view of play areas
A friendly, well-kept family campsite in the heart of the Veluwe National Park: That’s campsite De Helfterkamp. The campsite offers 160 spacious, well-maintained camping spaces, as well as several types of accommodation such as touring caravans, motorhomes and a holiday cottage. The fields (named after animals) and pitches are spacious and green. The pitches on the fields with play areas all look out over the play equipment, so you can always keep an eye on your kids.
Kids’ entertainment and play barn ‘de Schuure’
For the little ones, as well as slightly older children, we offer an entertainment programme, run by a professional kids’ entertainment service called De Eendenclub (The Duck Club). This takes place partly from our play barn ‘De Schuure’, the best place for fun activities, a game of table tennis or fussball. A TV, a sofa, a piano and a bookcase can also be found in the barn. One of the highlights of the year is our annual Helfterkamp Musical, created and performed by the entertainment team, and the kids and parents. An event to remember!
Petting zoo, play meadow, woodland, frog pond and stream
The kids can play outside all day without ever having to leave the campsite. Be it in the woodland or the meadow, on the discovery trail or paddling in the frog pond or stream. Top tip: Discover the springs and streams at the campsite. For the little ones we offer a discovery tour, and for adults a guided walk with a conservationist. Do you have any animal lovers in the family? Visit our petting zoo!
Fairytale tour, ghost tour, wide games and more
There are many adventures to be had for little ones, older kids, adventurers and princesses. We offer many activities for children both indoors and outdoors, including wide games as well as our fairytale tours and ghost tours. Parents and grandparents are very welcome to join in as well!
