Baalse Hei Campsite

Baalse Hei Campsite in Turnhout (Belgium) is a beautiful green campsite tucked away in the Turnhouts Vennengebied nature reserve. The assets of Baalse Hei? Space, peace and, above all, privacy. The 36-hectare campsite attracts many peace-seekers and nature lovers. This is not surprising, as the campsite is surrounded by a network of footpaths and cycle routes that cross the most beautiful nature reserves of the Antwerp Kempen region.
