Then relax under the rain shower in your room, which has been furnished with natural materials and modern furnishings.
Sleeping on Treasure Island
You’ll get a warm welcome at the Waterhout family campsite, surrounded by forest and water.

And if you want a change of pace after all that nature, the city centre of Almere is easily accessible. Return to your spacious pitch afterwards or have a drink on the sunny terrace of the nearby Brasserie 'Tien'.
