Reviewer: Gen251 1 review from this member

Well-equipped, peaceful site within easy reach of lots of great attractions.

Stayed at Laag Kanje for two nights in June 2014. Motorhome area is small - 4 pitches with electric hook-ups - in good location right by toilet block, bins, service area, and short walk to reception, shop, cafe/bar etc.

As others have said, the neighbouring Henschotermeer is great - sandy beaches, clean water, toilets, showers and kiosks. Great place to spend a sunny day with kids.

Maarn is about 1km away, easy to walk to, with railway station. Half hourly trains to Utrecht, even on a Sunday. Journey takes about 20 mins. Utrecht well worth a visit. Reception can organise tickets as they use an Oyster card system. We went to Utrecht and also Amsterdam

Excellent restaurant at very reasonable prices on site. They had a band playing in the shopping area on Wednesday night.

Entry and exit to motorhome/bungalow section of the park is using a plastic contact card. You pay a 20Euro deposit for these - so don't lose them! They also operate bins/recycling facilities. Intranet is 3 Euro per day

Motorhome service station was fine - usual drain facility and hose for water.

Great location for cycling or walking. English-speaking staff very friendly.

Maarn also has a 'Plus' supermarket. However, I prefer the slightly longer trip to Woudenburg, which has an Albert Heijn, and Aldi and a wider range of small shops.

Bike hire available from reception - 6. 50 Euro for 24 hours. Bikes seemed well maintained - certainly worked fine for me on day-long trip to Amelsfoort and Zeist (both well worth visiting)

Would definitely recommmend.

One year on from the previous review, this is still the cleanest and most relaxing campsite we have visited. And the hopping rabbits are still there!

The English-speaking staff (and campers) are very friendly and helpful. Tokens for the showers (ladies have to be quick!) and bins (keeps things tidy!).

The laundry room was out of service during our stay. However the campsite next door provided that service (even including the washing powder) along with a chat with the owner and chips from a real London bus!

The ground is perfect for pitching, even after heavy rainfall (one of the campers explained they have pipes installed underground).

We didn't try the shop but we found everything in the nearby towns of Marn and Doorn (there doesn't seem to be big supermarkets outside towns like in the UK though).

The central location is perfect to explore the rest of the country as it is easy to get onto the motorway from the campsite. Cyclists will be able to start from outside their tent!

If you can leave the white sandy beach of the Henschoten Lake they are some nice day trips to do in the area (Utrecht, Kroller-Muller museum, Het Loo Palace. ).

Also a short cycle ride away is the site of the battle of Austerlitz (now a lovely country park with gorgeous pink heather and sandy tracks, complete with amusements for the children).

Our 2 boys (aged 8 and 9) had a ball and we will definitely be back!

We had a very enjoyable one week stay here with our two girls aged 4 and 7. The setting is lovely.

The site is split into small sections which give it a lovely feel and you don't have far to go to the shower/toilet block.Some showers were better than others but the good ones were very good.The whole site is kept very clean.Our children enjoyed going to see the goats,rabbits and chickens and playground.The on site shop baked fresh croissants for breakfast yum yum! We enjoyed using the cycle paths to town and sight seeing.

The only negative I can think of is the lack of hot water and soap in the toilet.

This is probably the best site we have ever been to in the last 30 years of camping.

It is set in the National park near Utrecht with the units in 'rooms' in the woods with EHUs everywhere; so there is no feeling of being overcrowded. Throughout the site are incredible washing/shower blocks, maintained to a very high standard. On site there is a shop (Fri-Sun) for basics, a laundrette and rather nice cafe.

About half a mile through the woods you come across an enormous lake with golden sands and islands within it ( Henschotermeer) - almost South sea in appearance.

About 1 mile maximum there is the town of Maarn where there are shops,the main railway to Utrecht/Amsterdam and Arnhem and the A12 motorway

There are loads of walks, horse trails and cycle paths in the woods.

An added bonus is that it is on the ACIS scheme
