This wild camp spot is special. We have been here twice and made amazing discoveries. You drive off the E45 towards Ritsem. After 25 minutes, you turn off the main road onto an unpaved dirt track. Now, you should follow your GPS or phone until you reach this place. Drive gently; it’s a rental ;) and some parts of the road are a bit uneven, but still drivable.

If you park the van at the end of the road and walk up through the woods towards the lake (south), you will encounter many burned trees. These trees must have been hit by lightning. We assume the area experiences a lot of thunderstorms in the summer since it is known for its changing weather. We found a video (link) of such a tree burning from the inside, which is also what you will find with many trees in that forest.

Around midnight and after several beers, we saw a wolverine passing the campsite. These sightings are very rare. On our last visit in spring, we went down to the lake for fishing and found a strange ice formation on the melting lake ice. You can see it in this video: link.

Of course, you might not be here when the wolverine passes by or when the ice is melting, but this place will surely have something special waiting for you. You will be alone with nature. We have already decided – we will come back next time we relocate a camper van.
