We had a week here at the very end of August and the first few days of September. We had booked with Eurocamp who are about to join forces with Keycamp. We have done these camping holidays before and found this to be typical of the rest. When we first arrived the check in was very quick and the rep very pleasant. We had arrived early as had done the overnight ferry from Harwich to Hook of Holland (would do this again as very easy). Our van wasn't ready but we were directed to one of the car parks and given access to the site. We were with two teenage children and we spend a bit of time going round the park. There isn't that much to do here for this age group, four good rides but one of them wasn't working, the Splash ride was good but pretty tame compared to ones in the States, the same for the Dragonfly Coaster but they were still worth a go. The main ride is probably Falcon which is okay, one of those rides that go straight up and then straight down with a few loops afterwards that take you upside down but not in the same league as the ones in either Florida or California.
The park is well kept but can be a bit noisy - unfortunately for us we found the most noise came from the Eurocamp staff who seemed to turn the music up full volume when they were cleaning out the caravans which was annoying. The shop on site is well stocked and handy for the odd bits and pieces, but we were on the Island area of the park and it was quite a walk to the shop on site so it was almost as easy to walk into the town and go to the supermarket there which was a lot cheaper.
We hired bikes out for a few days which were 9 euros each a day and planned on going to the beach with them, however on the first day my daughter was riding her bike when a car coming the other way didn't slow down, she panicked and tried to stop but the brakes are on the pedal (you pedal backwards) which she forgot about and ended up going into one of the very many waterways on the site. Fortunately she wasn't too badly hurt but after that she didn't want to go very far on the bike again. It is just too busy with the cars, bikes and go-carts that if you aren't very confident you can get a bit nervous.
The caravan itself was okay but was old, only two of the gas rings on the hob worked and the toilet wouldn't always flush. As with all of these vans the space is cramped and on this site they are all close together so not much privacy. We also didn't like that we couldn't park outside the caravan although you can for loading and unloading.
Go to Amsterdam early as the Park and Ride was full when we got there at 1pm and had to wait a long time to get in - but worth doing this as it only cost 8 Euros for the four of us and this included the tram into central station.
C1000 supermarket has a parking clock in the vending machine which you can buy for 1 Euro which allows you to set the time you arrive in the parking bays as you are allowed 2 hours free parking. If you don't have a parking clock the chances are you will be okay but for peace of mind it is worth getting the clock and not worrying about a fine.
The Restaurants in the town are very good but are very expensive, we tried four of them and didn't have a bad meal but were shocked at how much it cost to eat out.
Bring a passport size photograph with you as it is necessary for the passes you will be issued when you arrive - you can get them done on the park but they charge you 4 Euros so it is more cost effective to bring your own.
If you are bringing a car I would suggest bringing charcoal for the BBQ rather than buying a bag at the supermarket, we only had one BBQ but had to buy a fairly large bag and lighting bricks which we ended up bringing home with us.
The beaches are worth a visit, we took the car and it took about 20 minutes, there is plenty of parking and it didn't cost too much, I think it was about 1.60 euros per hour. The beach has plenty of places to have a drink or a bite to eat - some of the them have free Wi-Fi which is worth doing as the park charges 7.95 a day if you want internet access on your devices.
If I went back I would look at getting a larger caravan or one of the Duingalows, the new ones they have on site look great and even have televisions, a/c and dishwashers.
What I didn't like was the trees everywhere as they block the sun out and when you are there late in the season I wanted to sit in the sun when I could but we were in constant shade so found it very frustrating.
The Island is quite shady but it depends on what you want. You can request pitches when you book.
