Lifestyle campsite Welgelegen, popular destination for kite surfers
As Lifestyle campsite, Welgelegen is a popular destination for active water sports lovers to stay overnight while kite surfing. We're even connected to the international Kite boarding Club, which has its own section on the camping grounds, where they have a school. We're very proud of this.
Close to the kite spots on the IJsselmeer
Welgelegen is the perfect place for students of the Kiteboarding Club Hindeloopen during the Kite Camp course days. Lessons are held at nearby kite spots in Mirns, Workum, Hindeloopen and Cornwerd.
Want to experience a day of kite surfing during your holidays? That can be arranged! Professional instructors are available on site for private lessons.

Lifestyle campsite Welgelegen makes sure kite surfers have a nice stay on our grounds: with your own camping equipment, or our hiker's cabins, charming Bed & Breakfast rooms, remarkable gypsy wagons and our own unique wooden Volkswagen van-styled huts we offer several sleeping accommodations for your overnight stay.

Volkswagen Bus Hut, most loved sleeping spot

Kite campsite Welgelegen is an extraordinary experience
We have a unique location for learning kite surfing. An environment filled with water, from lakes to canals to the IJsselmeer itself, which is known for its shallow waters and thus the ideal learning place for beginners.
Located on the grass adjacent to the Kiteschool is an instruction field.
The shallow waters of the IJssel Lake are beneficial
The extensive shallow water along the coast of the IJssel Lake, the wind and the wash all make our location the perfect spot for the Kite boarding Club to welcome beginning, advanced and expert kite surfers. A great spot is nearby for every way the wind blows: Hindeloopen, Workum, Mirns or Cornwerd.
Wind or no wind, it's always fun in the water
If winds are unfavourable for kite surfing, there's myriad alternatives to experience the water, such as canoeing, paddle surfing or wake boarding in Sneek. It's lovely spending a sunny day at our natural swimming pool or at one of the splendid beaches by the IJssel Lake. Another superb alternative is renting a dinghy and enjoy the marvelous waterways of Friesland.
Everything is available to keep that good Vibe alive!
Wakeboarding is super fun
Sneek is home to a wakeboard track, which can be a great training ground on days with unfavorable winds on the IJssel Lake. It's also a great place for kite surfers who are just starting out.
Always fun for the whole family
The picturesque towns in the vicinity make water rich Friesland a great holiday destination for the whole family. There are many events and activities during the summer where tourists and locals alike can fully experience Frisian culture.Look for activities in Friesland at https://www.friesland.nl/nl/agenda?calendar_range=2018-03-08-2018-03-08&area=&attribute=&search=
Ease & service for active water sports people
As Lifestyle campsite we will do our utmost to take care of the needs of people who love the outdoors and water sports.
The covered outdoor kitchen has an open area for rinsing and drying wetsuits.
The kitchen itself holds, as an extra service, a four burner gas stove with cookware, a refrigerator, and a washing machine and dryer to give our guests some added comfort during their holiday stay. No need to lug everything around everywhere.
We care deeply for nature at Lifestyle campsite Welgelegen
Our Easy Be dishwasher supports our vision at Lifestyle campsite Welgelegen to treat nature with respect in our daily lives. As nature lovers we want to make as small an impact on the environment as possible with our consumption habits. Our guests greatly appreciate this vision.
Turn an active holiday into an experience
Our small scale Lifestyle campsite makes your stay extra comfortable. The outdoor life with nature in such proximity touches on your inner serenity, which feeds your passion to live fully.
At Welgelegen you'll step into a bit of Mediterranean tranquillity, not unlike being on an island. Here we reuse materials creatively, which shapes that salty island feeling from its flower power vibes.
We all come together for the Good Vibe
You'll find marks of Cobie's worldly travels and adventures in her way of styling, use of colour and service. She brought back her favourite places to visit with her children and created a lifestyle out of it.
Her love for nature, connection and encounters, together with her passion for outdoor activities can be felt here as a 'Good Vibe'. It speaks volumes that many guests keep returning to Welgelegen year after year: it's like coming home. You're very welcome here...
