Campsites in the forest

 

In the forest at Houens Odde there are 15 campsites, intended for 10 to 50 participants in tents. Fixed fireplaces and pioneering poles are available at the campsites while firewood can be picked up for free at the Activity Centre. There are water posts with cold water outside the toilet houses and in more places in the forest.

The forest soil is vulnerable so digging is not allowed in the campsites. Instead there are permanent fireplaces and pioneering projects must be made in a way so that they can stand on the ground.

Each campsite is equipped with:

  • Fireplace 
  • Pioneering poles
  • Fire extinguishing gear

Centrally located at Houens Odde there are:

  • Toilet buildings with cold and hot water, showers and a handicap toilet
  • Taps with cold water
  • Dry firewood for cooking and campfires
  • Garbage station with waste separation
  • Refrigerated room for food storage is available

You can borrow or rent:

  • Supplementary movable fireplaces
  • Rope for pioneering
  • Box with kitchen equipment
  • Tents
  • Barrels for waste water

Borrow a circle of hammocks

Probably the most beautiful sight is lying down and looking up at the branches of a beech tree.
That is the reason why we have placed circles of hammocks in the forest at Houens Odde. The snap hooks are already out there. You just have to borrow one - or maybe ten - hammocks.
If you dare the patrol can easily sleep in the hammocks the whole night. But remember mosquito repellant.

Sleep in a shelter

You can book one or more nights in a shelter at Houens Odde. In the centre area there are 6 shelters, each of them for 4 to 6 persons. Three of the shelters form a cosy campsite with a view to the Eltang Creek, one is situated at the other side of the peninsula with a view to the Gudsø Creek, and the last 2 are  floating shelters on at raft.
