About us

We took over the campsite in 2017 after it lay idle for four years. As a first step, we invested a lot in its infrastructure (paths, water and electricity supply, hedges and trees). Unfortunately, we still have no access to the part of the property on which the former farm building stands. We, therefore, work with container solutions at the reception and the sanitary facilities, which are in any case in a very well-maintained condition.

Particularly important to us is the personal contact with our guests and a high level of customer orientation. During the operation of the place we have found a perfect partner with Baunataler Diakonie Kassel e.V. As part of an inclusion project, people with and without handicaps work together to make carefree camping holidays in Kassel possible.

Our site manager, Mr. Gunnar Fehling, and his team look forward to welcoming you.
