Dutch hospitality on a child-friendly campsite

Campsite De Papillon is located close to the German border, just outside the village of Denekamp. This welcoming family campsite is a place to enjoy nature and peace and quiet with the whole family. You’ll be camping on spacious pitches with a grassy surface, or you can choose one of the comfortable accommodations that are for rent. The campsite's trump card is the recreational lake with sandy beach where young and old can play and relax. There’s also a spray park where the children will quickly make friends!

Angling from the bungalow

Love a bit of luxury during your camping holiday? Then choose a stay in a tent or bungalow. There are two types of bungalows: ‘Panoramasnip’ and ‘Diamantsnip’, suitable for six people. Because the bungalows are spacious and far apart, you have enough privacy, peace and quiet. Attention anglers: a bungalow located on the fish pond is the place for you. Cast out your fishing line directly from your home away from home and wait until the fish bite!
Fans of real luxury tents will of course choose the Villatent XL. This fully furnished tent sleeps up to six. With two bedrooms, a bathroom and spacious kitchen you will have everything you need for a comfortable holiday. The covered patio with garden furniture means you can always sit outside, whatever the weather.

Surrounded by the countryside

Campsite and bungalow park De Papillon is located in one of the most beautiful and green parts of the east of the Netherlands. A beautiful location, and one where you can easily unwind. With lots of grass, trees and shrubs this is certainly a green campsite. Would you like a standard pitch or would you prefer a Comfort pitch? These offer a water tap, TV connection, electricity, wifi and water drainage.

Fun in the spray park

There is plenty to discover at the campsite. How about an extensive entertainment programme for children of all ages? If they prefer to play on their own, they will enjoy the large, clean sandpits and playground equipment. And on sunny days, a lot of fun can be had in the spray park. This water playground is full of cheerful features which make the water really come from all sides. Getting each other wet is part of the fun!
You can have more watery fun in the indoor pool with retractable roof. There is also a paddling pool for the youngest campers. You can also swim and play in natural water at campsite De Papillon. For that you can head to the recreation lake. There is a beautiful sandy beach for sunbathing and playing.

Lovely zoo with playground equipment

There’s excellent biking and walking near De Papillon. The German Bentheimer Forest is within cycling distance. The Lattrop Observatory is also close by; featuring various exhibition spaces, a cinema, a planetarium and the largest telescope in the Netherlands. A trip to Nordhorn Zoo is also highly recommended. Here you can spot monkeys, meerkats, birds and seals. The playgrounds make it extra fun for children.
