Around the campsite

The location of Camping Waalstrand on the banks of the river Waal provides a unique and first-class view on its maritime traffic. The variation is enormous. The small old boats, freighters, passenger ships, large container ships and pusher crafts will provide you with an impressive and fascinating spectacle.

The nature reserve surrounding the campsite is called the "Gelderse Poort". It's a collective name for the ribbon of river dunes, lowland riparian forests, flowery meadows in the river forelands and polders along the river banks from Emmerich through the Pannerden Channel until Arnhem and from Emmerich through the river Waal until Nijmegen. Many people already know parts of the National Landscape or Gelderse Poort nature reserve; such as the "Ooijpolder" and "Millingerwaard".

Camping Waalstrand is located just outside the village of Gendt, in a rural area that is bordered by rivers in the east and south. Thanks to the presence of dikes, river forelands, rivers, small church villages and the proximity of cities like Arnhem and Nijmegen, as well as the German border, one may say that this is a unique and special part of the Netherlands.

Within a stone's throw from Camping Waalstrand you will find the cities of Arnhem and Nijmegen. A visit to these cities is definitely worth your while. Nijmegen with its Roman history and lively quayside and Arnhem with its monumental city parks and shopping and entertainment mall, are best known. However, both cities have much more to offer. Germany also offers many opportunities, such as the cities of Kleve and Kranenburg.  These cities can also be reached by bicycle. And visiting the Doornenburg Castle is most certainly worth while too.

At our reception we can provide you with comprehensive tourist information as well as cycling and hiking routes.

Camping Waalstrand is located just outside the village of Gendt, which has a nice little shopping centre and plenty of shops where you can buy your daily necessities. Gendt is situated in a rural area that is bordered by rivers in the east and south. Thanks to the presence of dikes, river forelands, rivers, small church villages and the proximity of cities like Arnhem and Nijmegen, as well as the German border, one may say that this is a unique and special part of the Netherlands.
