I am not sure what all this talk about dirty toilets and unfriendly staff who don't speak english is - but it's absolute nonsense.
There staff there are fleuent in english and dutch, very friendly, full of top tips of where to go or help with direction and every morning i was almost held up by the staff who without fail cleaned the facilities, regularly throughout the day.
The pitches are nice by the lake, lots of ducks about being cheeky n stealing your crisps, although when extremely busy, i.e queens day the pitches can get a little boggy if its been raining, but nothing a good scrub wont sort out.
There is a bar and small shop for you early morning needs, sometimes a little over-priced but nice for the conveniance factor, especially when your forgot to go shopping before closing on a sunday (4pm).
The bar has live music in the summer and projected films which sets a nice atmosphere.
There is also a bike rental facility which is averaged price, ideal tho for popping into the centre.
All in all i would say zeeburg is a very nice campsite, close to the centre and not bad value for money. Same time next year!
