Rural camping near water

At the small-scale rural camping of Slachtehiem you can enjoy the peace, space and farm life. Where our cows grazed a few years ago, you will now find a spaciously designed farmer’s campsite. You will not hear any traffic noise here. You will hear and see frogs, birds, horses, sheep and cows. In addition, you will regularly witness the beautiful sunsets and beautiful skies in Friesland.

Rural camping with 5-star sanitary facilities

In 2005 Slachtehiem was still a dairy farm. In 2006 we placed a new building; a multifunctional recreation farm.

Where our cows grazed a few years ago, you will now find a spaciously designed rural camping. Our campsite has spacious, sheltered camping pitches due to the beautiful vegetation around. Each camping pitch has its own water tap and electrical connection (4 amps).

      Kitchen, cooling and washing machine

      The kitchen space in the sanitary building can be used for washing dishes. There is also a washing machine, freezer and ironing board. There is a cozy sitting area where you can read while the washing machine is running.

      Camper places

      Slachtehiem is a camper-friendly campsite. We have a number of special facilities for campers. With us you can discharge your wastewater and fill up with clean water.

      An additional advantage for campers is the high location of our camping field. This makes the drainage excellent and the field remains dry for longer

        By the water

        Camping Slachtehiem is located directly on the historic De Slachte flood defense. The channel on which the camping is located is ideal for fishing, canoeing or boat trips with your own boat. Our campsite on the water has its own slipway to put your boat (max. 2x6m) in the water.

        What others say about us

        More or less by chance – we wanted to go out with the camper for a few more days – we came to camping site “Slachtehiem”. We were pleasantly surprised. A wonderfully quiet campsite: a beautiful field with spacious pitches and very good sanitary facilities. The manager (Rudolf) is an excellent and sympathetic host. Add to this the favorable location of the campsite (Sneek, Bolsward, Harlingen and Franeker within cycling distance) and you have the ideal campsite in North West Friesland.

        Five stars! We will come back for sure.
