A technical miracle with a rightful place on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

This is what our guests say:

Since 1998 we have been located at Recreatiepark de Oude Maas, then called Camping de Oude Maas. The past 20 years we have seen a lot of changes and improvements. There used to be a canteen and a phone booth because not everyone had a cell phone and you had to go to the cell to make a phone call. In 2001 chalets were placed and all mobile homes came together on 1 field where we are. The toilet blocks have been completely renovated and there are now underground containers for separated waste. Also all the paths have been recently refurbished and new mobile homes have been placed for rental but also for sale. We love it here on the campsite; it's quiet but still very cosy.

By coincidence we discovered the camper pitches at Recreatiepark de Oude Maas on our way to the South of France. Since that one time we come back regularly to relax for a couple of nights on one of the 11 camper pitches overlooking the marina or the river. They are spacious paved pitches with their own electricity and water. In the morning we get freshly baked sandwiches and croissants at the reception and look for a nice cycling route for that day. That's all you need, isn't it?

As more than 9 years old, I am a satisfied customer and have a great time here. There are 2 boats of mine here, one in the summer in the harbor and in winter on shore and the other, a somewhat smaller boat, is on shore all year round. With that boat I make use of the wide and easy trailer slipway all year round. The terrain and the harbour are well maintained, very neat and tidy and it is well organized. What I am also happy with is that it is easily accessible and well secured. Without good and motivated staff this is of course not possible. I will stay here for a while!

During the May holidays we camped with our girls (4 & 6 years old) on the field with the new playground. They had such a good time! In addition, the sanitary is new and clean, the staff friendly, and there is much to do in the immediate vicinity. We can recommend it to everyone!

It is with great pleasure that we have been visiting Recreatiepark de Oude Maas for many years. We stand with our tour caravan on - we think - one of the most beautiful places on the park, namely on one of the comfort pitches with a wonderful view over the river. Our boat is located in the marina next door because I love to fish on the Oude Maas. In the evening we sit in front of our caravan enjoying a drink and the sunset.
