Pricing is €2,00 per person, per night tourist-taxes included.

Landscape
The campsite lies in a small forrest of mostly old pine-trees mixed with younger broadleaf trees surch as birch and oak. Many -some of them rare- reptiles, amfibies, bats and birds can be seen here. The staff can provide you with information about the flora and fauna around the site. Especilly the fens are home to rare sorts of flora and fauna. Therefore this is a restricted area.
The beautiful campsite is connected with nature reserve 'De Groote Heide' (the great moor) to the South-East of the city Eindhoven. And the site is also connected to the 'Strabrechtse heide' (moor of Strabrecht) and the 'Leenderbossen' (Forrest of Leende) which is connected with forrests and moors in Belgium.
On the campsite you will find a gorgeous sandhill (sand-drift), very suitable for all sorts off activities. The whole area is very suitable for all kinds of games. Trips by foot or by bicycle are possible in all directions. 
Due to the variaty in pine- and broadleaf-trees and the natural slopes this is a very nice campsite. The site is owned by the community of Heeze-Leende and is managed by the Dutch Scouts Organisation.
