It is a lovely place to walk around with the kids. There are lots of little trails to follow for the kids which they can follow themselves. There is also a great lake to swim in, which is not too deep at the edges and...More

Well signed, lots of wildlife and easy cycling through the dune park. A great day out. Near the park entrances are some excellent stops for food and drink - we stopped in Overeens.

Nature, trees, lakes, hills, wildlife, quiet and peace. Cycle tracks are mostly all macadamised. The paths are all signposted, it is North Holland's nature secret.
