We were directed to this campsite as the site we usually use were full. We wanted an electric hook up but when we arrived and asked for one was basically told 'No'
The guy at Reception was arrogant and if it hadnt of been so late in the evening we probably would have moved on. But after a 6 hr ferry trip from England we were tired and wanted to rest.
As we didn't want to take our car onto the site due to extra cost we were just told to pitch our tent on a piece of grass land next to reception near the main entrance. This small area was already quite busy and upon asking the guy at Reception whether our tent would fit as it was an 8 berth, we were told 'it will fit'.
Yh just about! Only to wake up next morning finding that it was difficult to gain access to and from our tent as others had pitched up basically touching ours.
As we were nr the main entrance it was noisy as this was in constant use.
Walking around the site there were many spaces available that would have suited us better....& been quieter.
No hot water unless you pay extra for it and 5 min use of the shower for 80cent.
Amsterdam itself is easy enough to get to via metro and tram. About a 30 min ride.
Not an enjoyable experience and I def wouldn't visit here again.
