Er wordt veel georganiseerd, vooral ook voor de jeugd is er veel te doen. Ze houden een markt met de mogelijke activiteiten/bezienswaardigheden in de buurt. Dit is heel fijn.

Het aanbod vanuit de animatie is enorm. Goede shows, gevarieerd (sport) programma. De camping is rustig gelegen. Geen geluidsoverlast van (spoor)wegen etc.
