Camping ‘De Liede’ is ideally located for trips to nearby cities like Haarlem and Amsterdam, but also the beach and recreational areas are close by. We offer several ways to explore these surroundings through different rental options.

Bike rental

You can rent a bicycle at the camping for € 8, – per day. Each bike is equipped with a Axa bicycle lock, and you also get an extra padlock. In the summer period, it is advisable to book them in advance.

Haarlem Tour: The in Haarlem well known ’round Haarlem’ was established in 2002. The bike ride will be approximately 50 kilometers and will take you through different landscapes in South-Kennemerland.

Additionally, you will see places such as Bloemendaal, Overveen, Bennebroek, Heemstede, Schalkwijk and Vijfhuizen to complete the ‘route Haarlem’ . If you cycle all the way through the round, it’ll take approximately 2.5 hours, but if you want to stop at the various highlights along the route , it will take double the time.

Canoe rental

In 2021 we will have replaced all old canoes with brand new canoes. You can rent a canoe for one or two people or a Canadian canoe for three people at Camping ” De Liede ” for € 10.00 per hour. We do not make reservations, but you can always call an hour in advance after 09:00 if there are still canoes available.

Because the campsite is located directly on the water (Ringvaart Haarlemmermeer), it goes without saying that we give you the option of renting a one- or two-person or a Canadian canoe for three people for € 10 per hour. Whether it is for two hours or for a ‘tour of Haarlem’, the ring canal is ideal for relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet on the water and the sights on the Spaarne, you sail through the Haarlem center of Haarlem.
It is possible to sail a large tour from Camping ” De Liede ”. This canoe route is approximately 21 km and will take you along various sights.

You will also come across a number of mills. The route is neatly indicated with ANWB signs with ‘Molentocht’ on it. Click here for more information about the Defense Line of Amsterdam.

SUP rental

In 2021 we purchased two sup boards. You can rent a sup board at Camping ” De Liede ” for € 10.00 per hour. The intention is that you go on the water independently. We do not make reservations, but you can always call an hour in advance after 09:00 to see if there are any sup boards available.

Stand Up Paddle is the fastest growing water sport at the moment and is accessible to young and old. When this is the first time, it will take some practice, but no worries within a few minutes you will already find it useful. When you want to get on a sup board for the first time, we recommend that you do this in good weather. There is a chance that you will end up in the water.
