The campsite was hit by the flood from july 2022. We did a lot of work since then.
With the reconstruction, much has been renewed and modernised, so that there is no investment backlog.
The campsite is allowed to be called a tourist campsite (allowance of the mininistry for tourism in namur). It is a 2-star campsite. This can easily be increased, but we have deliberately refrained from doing so because we want to run a simple, basic campsite.
With its present conception, the campsite can be managed well by 2 persons. Only in the main season an additional helper is nice to have for the cleaning.
