Parc de Witte Vennen is a true family business. The cautious construction of a holiday park began on the site of an old sand quarry in the late 1980’s, initially with 30 Scandinavian-style chalets. In late 1997 the Verberk family came on the scene and in 1998 they opened 30 camping sites plus the first owner-occupier homes. A few years later the first 6 rental bungalows were built.
Since then the business has expanded to what you see now. There are 44 rental bungalows and chalets, and a campsite purely for tourists comprising almost 150 pitches. There are modern extensive facilities, a lido and play park. At this moment in time there are also 40 owner-occupied holiday homes. The huge plot is 53 hectares (approx. 130 acres), of which 25 hectares (approx. 60 acres) is taken up by the lake. Future years will see further expansion of the recreation area since quarry activity has recently ceased. The end of this year will see the whole area turned into recreation land, whereupon a monumental expansion will begin.
