De Heerenborgh is an attractive caravan and camping park between Groningen and Drachten in the North Netherlands, in the region called “Westerkwartier”, in a location where peace, quiet and seclusion are natural features. We can offer about 20 pitches for caravans and tents, many of them connected to electricity and water, surrounded by woodland and coniferous trees. We also have caravans for hire.

The site has a sanitary unit with two toilets and a shower cabinet and wash basin, both with hot and cold water. The use of the shower is free.

The park is situated on Niekerkerdiep, a canal with acces to a canoe route. There is a canoe for free for tourists who would like to discover the local landscape of small streams and rivulets from the water. But the surrounding countryside also offers attractive possibilities to those who prefer to explore it by car or by bicycle.

Niekerk is less than fifteen motor minutes away from the pleasant university city of Groningen, with its pavement cafes, bars, discotheques and saunas.

Caravan und Camping park “De Heerenborgh” offers unique opportunities for a (short) holiday and is a perfect starting point for trips in the northern provinces.
