Very nice camp site, places for campervans, tents, and even little huts of different kinds and sizes you can rent out for fairly reasonable prices. We brought our own tent so it was only 15EUR a night (which is sill pricey, I know, but all of Amsterdam is expensive for accommodation! This was the best deal). There was a kitchen to cook in, but no where to store food, but a little store to buy food and things at the site, and a bathroom and laundry but you had to pay extra for the showers, laundry and remember to bring your own TP!
I can't complain however, it was a beautiful area and beautiful weather all week while we were there! You can also rent bikes from the office (20EUR a day) and there is a lovely park right there with ponds, and ducks, and even a few highland cows! Close to Amsterdam, only a bus and a short train ride away. Reasonably safe place to leave your things even when camping (only our TP was stolen). But if the weather is good and money is short, try it out!

We walked the streets along with a contingent of nationalities but a generous sprinkling of Aussies fresh (not an appropriate adjective) from Octoberfest in Munich so they were about as handy as pockets in your undies. There was a delightful German (again a phrase not often heard) girl who had spent some time in Melbourne and even the guide knew some old Tintern girls ...
We woke up this morning and walked down to the Mikes Bikes office where we met the tour group. We got a mini history lesson and safety information at the start from one of the guides then we were split into two groups for the actual tour. We went out and picked a bike and lined up on the pavement ready to ride out. It's been so long since I've ridden a bike I was a little worried I'd make a fool of myself, but after a wobbly start I got into the swing of it ...
