The Kooistra family welcome you to their Farm and Camping Gerkema Zathe in Warstiens, Friesland. The campsite is situated in the Alde Feanen nature park in the heart of Friesland, and sits on the Langdeel lake, which has waterways leading from it to Leeuwarden and Eernewouden. We have everything for the hiker, fisher, or cyclist, right on our doorstep! The lake is fully stocked with fish, and is suitable for all experience levels- from hobbyist to sports fisher.
De Alde Feanen nature park is perfect for nature lovers, whether you'd prefer to cycle through forests, or go bird-spoting. A short distance from our campsite, you'll find all manner of cultural excursions, with or without the kids.
