Adjacent to the camp site is a large pond known as 'De Dobbeplas'. This is part of a larger recreational area stretching from 'Delftsehout' (Delft) through Nootdorp, Pijnacker up to the former Floriad (Flower show) in Zoetermeer.
This pond many park freatures as well as a small beach. The pond is suited for raft building, canouing, rowing, fishing, windsurfing, and of course swimming. In this urban area, this is a true paradise for birdwatchers exploring nature.
Materials for raft building are available on our site. Two Canoes (seating 3 each) are rented out by the warden.
Instructions for a simple raft design are available for download here.
Tip: When everyone is happily rowing on their rafts, it is very convenient for the leaders to rent a canoe, because they can be quickly there should anything happen.
