Ameland shore of the Waddenzee

Note: In the southern part of Friesland you will find a large amount of small camping sites, most of them farming campings. During summer they will be crowded, but out of the season lot's of opportunities. At this site I only describe the nature campings I visited.

Nes "MiddelpĂ´lle"

{phocamaps view=map|id=21}

Route: take the ferry from Holwerd to Ameland (ferry goes about every 1-2 hours and takes 45 minutes). When leaving the boat, keep to the left, around the village Nes. Turn left direction Ballum (Ballumerstraat). After a small wood at the right you see a small road "Westerpad" The camping is at this street.

It's really a wonderful place to be. Nice island, splendid nature, splendid camping ground with lot of space, beach at 5 minutes walking. Not allowed for caravans and campers. At Ascension, Whitsunday and during July/August you MUST make a reservation. At other times its nice and quiet and you just find a place. At arrival, complete a form, you can find near the office. When you see the forester, play your check please. Cash only. Shopping in Nes (2 km).

St Nicolaasga "Blaauw"

Phone +31 513 431 361

{phocamaps view=map|id=18}

Route: Follow the road direction Langweer from St Nicolaasga, which lays  8 km south of Joure and Sneek. The camping is immediately adjacent to the road. You should proceed about 100-200m after you see the camping. At your left hand you see a larger camping, cottage park called "Blaauw". register here at the reception.

It's a very simple accommodation. When I was there some places with 230V connection were completely flooded due to some rain. Places without electricity were in good shape tough. Langweer is a very nice village, St Nicolaasga is good for shopping only (2 km).

St Jacobiparochie ' 't Kaatsgat"

Phone +31 518 401 284

{phocamaps view=map|id=17}

Route: exactly at node 58 between and north of St Jacobiparochie and St Annaparochie

A very well maintained camping site. They also have two guest rooms (no breakfast), bad weather accommodation. Absolute top class! The environment is a very flat agricultural area, with dikes, grand views and near the Waddenzee shore. Shopping in St Annaparochie (4 km)
