Camping Dorado

Location and atmosphere

Campsite Dorado is situated in the triangle of Groningen, Assen en Drachten, where meadows, arable land, woods, heathlands, pools and lakes alternate with each other. The accommodation is located in the middle of meadows, and opposite the forest of Mensinge with its special flora and fauna. The owners are inspired by the beauty of Scandinavian campsites. They run their campsite as sustainable as possible, which is why they own the eco-label of the international Green Key, the formerly gold Milieubarometer. They installed solar panels and a water recycling system.


You can stay the night in one of the six sustainably built cottages. Four of them are detached and two are semi-detached. They are fully furnished and fit for four to six persons. You can rent the (semi-detached) houses as group accommodation for twelve persons at the most. The camping grounds consist of thirteen spacious bordered pitches and a large field for seven pitches. Besides, there is a hiking field for five pitches. Also you can rent a hiker's hut for four persons. The sanitary facilities of the campsite are heated and suitable for wheelchairs. In addition there is a covered kitchen-dining room.

Surroundings and activities

From the accommodation to the village Roden is about 1.5 km, where you can do your shopping or have something to eat. The towns Groningen and Assen (provincial capitals) are within easy reach. The campsite is a good starting point for beautiful walks and cycling tours in the Fochtloërveen or along the megalithic monuments in Steenbergen. There is a prison museum in Veenhuizen and in the surroundings various old churches are worthwhile a visit.
