Camp-site Warten

Alles onder één dak!

You're very welcome at our camp-site, nearby to Leeuwarden, Eernewoude, and Grou. We're extremely accessible, but completely surrounded by nature, and just round the corner is the 'water-sports village' Warten. It's an ideal place to begin a sailing trip, a longer trip with a sloop boat, or a tour in one of our own open boats. We've got a large restaurant, excellent facilities, a play-area, and a large number of activities available. 

De Wartenster is right on top of the Nationaal Park De Alde Feanen. A wonderful way to explore the national park is via canoe, small boat, or hiking. We're an excellent destination for kids, too, with a huge play-area with trampoline, zip-wire, swings, and slides.

Our camper van spaces are fully connected to both power (6 Amp), and fresh water- on a hardened pitch site. Showers are free to use, as is the Wifi. The restaurant has a large terrace for early evening drinks, a hearty breakfast, or one of our delicious wood powered oven pizzas. 

We organise a large number of activities for both adults and kids, including archery, boat tours, pony riding, and paintballing.

Onze staanplaatsen zijn ruim en hebben een eigen stroomaansluiting (6 amp) en watertappunt. Voor campers is er een verharde staplaats. Douchen is bij ons gratis en ook de wifi is gratis beschikbaar. We beschikken over een restaurant en ruim terras voor een gezellig drankje, een goede maaltijd of een heerlijk houtoven-gebakken pizza!

Restaurant

Our restaurant and terrace are open from Friday to Sunday, from 12:00. Our terrace is open more often in sunny weather, too!

In association with the RIVM's guidelines, we ask that you reserve for dinner (at the restaurant). The terrace does not need a reservation, but if you are suffering from any cold-like symptoms at all we ask that you stay home. 

Restaurant

Van harte welkom in ons restaurant en op ons terrras. Wij zijn op vrijdag t/m zondag open vanaf 12.00 uur. Bij mooi weer openen we natuurlijk ons terras ook op andere dagen! You may sit within 1.5m of other guests if you are a couple, group, or family that live together. In order to maintain social distancing our tables have been shifted a little further away from eachother. 

Aside from our large terrace and garden, we also have a covered terrave and veranda- so there's enough room for everyone!

Activities

One of our most relaxing activties is a tour on a traditional Frisian flat-bottomed praam boat. Upon request we can organise full tours in keeping with the RIVM's Coronavirus regulations.

At De Wartenster we are lucky to have a large garden, even larger meadows, four tour-boats; three event rooms, our own bar and kitchen, and about 1,250 square meters of covered activity space. We can organise events for every budget, group-size, and preference- and we have a great relationship with a number of local businesses.
