Camper places

At the “De Hoop” flour mill there are 15 places with an electricity connection available to spend the night with your camper. There are also a number of places available without this electricity connection.

Mill “de Hoop” is a mill completely restored in 2011-2013 with its origins from 1631. The mill is run entirely by volunteers only. All the money that comes in is spent on the maintenance of the mill.

From this place you can explore the surrounding polder landscape by bike or on foot or enjoy the nearby sea, beach and dunes.

Because there is no supervision on site, no reservations can be made in advance.

Lovely site in a lovely setting, enjoyable windmill tour was very interesting. Useful food store in the village & good bus link to Alkmaar. Comment site owner: unfortunately te bus link to Alkmaar doesn't exists anymore. It is replaced with a bus link to Schagen.


On the mill site there are a number of facilities especially for the campers. These are:

  • Shower and toilet block
  • 15 places with electricity (6 Ampère), these are places 1 to 8 and 9 to 15
  • Water tap
  • Chemical toilet drain
  • Waste water tank drain
  • Wi-Fi
  • Garbage container
  • Glass container
  • Container for bottles and cans with deposit (the deposit is used for the maintenace of the mill)
  • Cycling routes (when the mill is open)


All activities on and around the mill are done by volunteers. In order not to burden them too much, a number of house rules have been drawn up. These are:

  • Reservation is not possible.
  • There is maximum space for 20 campers. If there is no more space, you are requested to look for another place.
  • Immediately after arrival fill in the deposit envelope and deposit the self-calculated contribution in the letterbox at the info desk.
  • Pets are welcome, but must be kept on a leash. Walking the dog can be done directly outside the ground. If things go wrong, please clear up their feces.
  • Deposit waste in the appropriate container.
  • Due to the fire hazard of the thatched roof of the mill, no open fire is allowed.
  • Do not disturb the other guests.
  • Leave the pitches clean and tidy.
