Practical info for camping

As camping on Belgian military sites is not allowed anymore, we offer an alternative campsite nearby (+/-3 km), that you may use free of charge (see overview below). 
This campsite has been used and approved by pilots attending our fly-in.

  • Tents, caravans can stay there during the day too, or may be moved to the flying field. There will be a permanency at the camping during the day.
  • There is no electricity and no water supply.

  • There is a canteen (De Roedel) next to the campsite: we keep their bar open from sunset till +/-01:00 on Friday/Saturday. During these hours, you can also use their toilets. The toilets/shower etc at the airfield remains permanently available.
  • You can stay at the campsite from Friday afternoon till Monday morning, 10:00.
  • If you're looking for an accomodation in the neighbourhood, look around the area of 'Houthalen-Helchteren, Belgium' (for our exact location check our Route description)
