Discover and experience - Friesland

Discover Friesland the French way

Straight from your tent or caravan you find yourself surrounded by nature. Are you ready to discover more of Gaasterland?

Make beautiful hike or bike tours along some splendid Frisian villages.

Along the way, settle down in one of the many restaurants which are full of character. Continue your tour alongside the famous slopes, where you can swim and relax on one of the lovely family beaches on Lake IJssel.

There are many ways to spend your time in Gaasterland. Spotting birds at the Sondeler Leien, eating fish in Laaksum, discover the local culture in Stavoren or Sloten and after that, you can admire the boats entering the harbour of Lemmer whilst sitting on a terrace.

That is experiencing Friesland the French way. In your own way and in your own tempo.

Freedom - camping in nature

Creating the right holiday feeling is exactly our skill.

Spending your holidays at the Waps is synonym for tranquillity, nature and … freedom.

In every aspect you will experience our philosophy behind the idea: camping in freedom.

At De Waps, respect for each other and respect for nature play a central role. Keeping this in mind, we assume a healthy dose of responsibility. That is why we deem it unnecessary to bother you right away with a long list of house rules.

“Encounter, enjoy and experience with respect for one another.”
