Island ‘De Kluut’ is situated in the middle of the Veluwemeer, on the border between Gelderland and Flevoland. The island was created about 50 years ago by raising the remaining sand left after the construction of Flevoland and it is about 4 hectares large. On the island you can find high trees, reed palms, dense thicket and some open spots with grass. You can take a nice nature walk around the island or relax on one of the beautiful benches to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.
On the west side of the island a cozy campsite has been set up. Here you can find tents nessled in among a natural surrounding, with wide open spaces and a fantastic water view.
A large tipi is the place to gather when the weather is bad. In this tipi lounge, you will find a social atmosphere to interact with others through games, books and magazines to read and for children materials to express their creativity. Or you can choose to relax in one of the hammocks.
Of course there is an excellent sanitairy building with 4 hot showers, toilets including paper and sinks. Several basic products are for sale to prepare a simple meal, like rice, pasta, cans with sauce and vegetables, snacks and biological wine. And you can order daily fresh bread which will be delivered at your tent.
At the head of the island, there is a port containing docking poles, with a capacity for 55 boats. Our ferry sails four times a day to Flevoland from where you can make all kinds of day trips.
