Camping Bakkum has been a household name for over 100 years. In fact, camping was more or less invented at Bakkum. The conviviality of the early days is still there, but now combined with 21st century comfort. Just take a look at the colourful Tent house, the luxurious Beach cabin or at a retro Oldtimer Caravan and you'll know what we mean.
Camping at 'Bakkum' is a real treat, with many extraordinary play facilities around a number of the pitches. Regularly there are organised activities, from football tournaments to Circus Week, beach volleyball and surfing lessons. Or maybe you fancy baking rolls around the campfire? Or making theatre?
There are many interesting things for grown-ups too. A regular organic market, yoga classes or free fun theatre performances. Even a stroll around the campsite with all its colourful pitches will not fail to inspire !
Camping Bakkum is situated in the middle of the North-Holland Dune Reserve. A mere 1500 metre walk or cycle ride brings you to the beach. If you return to the campsite hungry but without feeling like cooking, then there is something to suit all tastes on Winkelplein: chicken, pizza, chips, you name it! That said, you could also have dinner on the beach, or in Alkmaar, Haarlem or Amsterdam. All cities much nearer than you'd think!
