in natural Drenthe

Camping de Berken is a comfortable 4 star campsite with an intimate character in the Dutch province of Drenthe. The campsite is located in the town of Gasselte, at the heart of the Hondsrug sand ridge between the charming cities of Groningen, Assen and Emmen. Surrounded on all sides by nature, our campsite borders the unique nature reserve ‘Het Drouwenerzand’. This area of Drenthe is great for camping! Whether you come with your caravan, campervan, pop-up camper or tent, you’ll always find your favourite spot at Camping de Berken. Don’t have your own camping equipment? You can hire your own hiker’s cabin, Berken studio or a fully equipped Rental chalet! The Dutch travellers’ association ANWB has given our camping in Drenthe a 4-star rating!
