Update on the coronavirus

- Last updated on 19-10-2020 -

Oostappen Group Holiday Parks keeps a close eye on the latest developments regarding the coronavirus and the guidelines of the Dutch and Belgian government. The safety and health of our guests and employees are of paramount importance!

As Oostappen Group Holiday Parks we have sufficient opportunities at all our holiday parks to follow up on government measures and give each other sufficient space. Read below what impact the measures have on the Dutch and Belgian holiday parks.


All Dutch Campings are open for recreational stays until Monday 26 October 2020. We will of course do this in compliance with the applicable measures and with extra attention for our guests, our staff, hygiene and everything else necessary to offer a safe and responsible holiday. The communal sanitary facilities at the parks reopened on 15 June. This means that you can come camping again if you are not self-sufficient.

The following facilities are currently open at the Dutch parks (of course according to RIVM guidelines). The Oostappen Holiday Parks are large, which means there is enough space to comply with the distance rules and still be able to enjoy the holiday.

  • Subtropical/covered swimming pools at Vakantieparken De Berckt, Prinsenmeer are open. --> You can reserve a time slot for the indoor swimming pools at the reception desk at the parks, so that everyone has the opportunity to use them. 
  • Indoor play palace / bowling alley at Camping Prinsenmeer is open.
  • Beach pool on Camping Prinsenmeer is open.
  • Catering is closed from 14 October 22:00 until the end of the season (Monday 26 October). There is a possibility to pick up. More information can be obtained at the reception desk and the park's catering facilities.


This year the Belgian Camping are open until Monday 26 October. Unfortunately, this is earlier than the earlier mentioned date (Monday 9 November). Due to the extra measures announced in the press conference on 16 October, we have had to decide to close our holiday parks in Belgium earlier. In the current circumstances, we cannot offer the safe and responsible holiday in which you can make full use of the facilities. The choice was extremely difficult and annoying, but we hope for your understanding.

Camping Blauwe Meer

  • Wearing a mouth mask is compulsory at the park.
  • Is open to all guests (camping, rental + year guests).
  • Reception and sanitary building are open.
  • Catering facilities are closed, collection is possible. More information can be obtained at the reception and the catering facilities on the park.
  • Indoor pool and covered beach are open.

Camping Hengelhoef

  • In the municipality of Houthalen (and other parts of Belgium), mouth caps are compulsory for all people over 12 years of age. In short, all guests over the age of 12 must wear a mouth shield on the camping. 
  • Is open to all guests (camping and rental).
  • Reception and sanitary building are open.
  • Catering facilities are closed, collection is possible. More information can be obtained at the reception and the catering facilities on the park.
  • Indoor playground and subtropical swimming pool are open. (It is also possible for day-trippers to use the subtropical swimming pool, reservation in advance is required).

Camping Parelstrand

  • Is open to all year guests and tourist campers are also welcome from 18 September to 26 October.
  • The park does not offer rental or camping pitches this year.


When the measures from the Belgian and/or Dutch government are extended/tightened, we may have to postpone the opening dates. We will keep you informed about this. Of course we will do this via this page, but if necessary we will also inform our holiday guests, seasonal guests and annual guests directly.

With regard to reservations already made with an arrival date prior to the above-mentioned date, we apply the following principles (guests will be contacted by us):

  • Moving the reservation to another period in 2020 is possible on the basis of availability and at the current rates.
  • Guests will receive a voucher for the amount already paid. If the new reservation is more expensive, the additional cost for the guests. When the reservation is cheaper, the guest will receive the difference back in the form of a voucher.
  • Provided that COVID-19 has been detected by one of the future guests (within 2 weeks prior to arrival), no modification fee will be charged.
  • If guests do wish to cancel, they will pay a cancellation fee in accordance with the booking conditions.
  • If the guest has booked with a certain preference, we will of course take this into account.
  • If guests have booked through tour operators, we will only refer guests back to the tour operators if they wish to cancel.
  • If you want to rebook your made reservation you can contact the Reservations Department (see contact details below).

We hope of course, just like everyone else, that the virus will be under control soon so that we can pick up the normal course of events, so that everyone can start enjoying outings, restaurants and a well-deserved holiday again!
