Vanaf zaterdag 1 april geopend - Ouvert apd 1er Avril - Open from the 1st of April
campsite… Our campsite has everything you need, but always including the calming peace of nature in the background. We have made some space in our Belgian restaurant to have nice conversations, to eat dinner or just drink some nice Belgian beers. During the colder spring season you can enjoy the warmth of our firestove in the restaurant and its nice to enjoy the views over the river "La Semois" and the forest through the big windows. The terras of the restaurant is devided in two levels, one rigth next to the river and one a little bit higher under a small roof. Next to our terras there are some climbing facilities fot small kids, a table tennis table, et cetera so they can enjoy themselves too. In the summer, the river is an ideal playground for the kids. It's shallow and safe to play in, right next to "Le Gué du Maka", which is a shallow part of the river where you can cross it to the other side.
Campsite MAKA... is situated on a very calm spot, at a road that is only used for local traffic, surrounded bij woods and water. The road from Bertrix to Auby-sur-Semois and our campsite takes you through magnificent views from the higher roads down to the river. Over our small bridge you find at your left the brand new sanitary building with showers and toilets, furtheron are the reception, the restaurant, the terrace and the playground for the smaller kids. Next to the restaurant is our small shop and the reception where we can give a lot of information about our region. The pitches to put up your tent and to park your caravan or mobilhome are situated at the most beautifull places on the campsite. You are always along the river or the creeck (Les Alleines or La Semois).
For rent... During our season, from April untill the third weekend of September, we have frame-tents (bungalow-tents), wooden chalets, mountainbikes, canoes, bbq's and other things for rent at our campsite. The rental chalets and tents are all placed at the river side, so that you can enjoy your stay at the cleanest river of Belgium.
Campfire-BBQ... You're allowed to make a small campfire at our campsite at the places we made aspecially for this reason. You may also make a small fire at your pitch, but only in a Fire-pan which we've for hire and sale. Ofcourse you can BBQ at your tent, caravan or mobile home, on charcoal or gaz. When you want to go downstream to Camping MAKA by canoe, you can! We take you to Mortehan in our Land Rover Defender and you paddle back to the campsite in a real "Gatz" or Ally canoe. The distance is 11km and it will take 2 - 2,5 hours to get back, but the canoe is yours all day long and you can stop to have a nice picknick where ever you want along your way down…
Our Library... We have started a small library in the restaurant, so everyone can read books, even when they haven't taken them from home. Because we're Dutch, we've a lot of Dutch books, but not much English books. We kindly ask you, when you want to visit us, to take some old books you do not need anymore to stock our library with English books for the English speaking campers at our site.
Our openings hours... The campsite is open from april till the tird weekend of september. The exact openings hours of the Belgian restaurant, the shop and reception are written on the blackboard at the door. During the high season we are open from 9:00 - 21:00, during the off season and calmer days we're open from 9:00 - 12:00 & 15:30 - 19:00. We kindly ask everyone to get to the campsite before 18:00, if not possible, the day after.
Where to camp... The left (white) part of the campsite and the right (white) part are reserved for you when you camp at Camping MAKA. The yellow pitches are seperated in different hights for our "all year campers". The river (Semois) is faced to the south, so you can enjoy sunshine all day long!
Sanitary building...The building is build in 2008 and it's very luxury. Men and women seperated of course, a room for small children, places to wash your dishes, hot water and showers for free, a washing machine and a tumble dryer. It will increase your joy at ourcampsite, no doubt!
The view at the campsite... Wether you go fishing in this sublime river or just enjoy a nice beer on our terrace or just enjoy the view from your camping pitch, who doesn't want to be here?
Go wandering... A scan of the surroundings of the campsite show you only forrest and water, in other words, the calming surroundings. We have several wandering routes for you. Some, we have made of our own, others are provided on maps.
Who's inviting you... We are a Dutch family who have taken over a campsite where a lot of work had to be done. This is good because this is the best way to make it "ours", but it means also that we had to do everything by ourselfs which has "cost" us a lot of time... But we have finished it within the five years in which we wanted to do everything, including the brand new sanitairy block! This means we are ready to meet you, we are looking forward to your visit!
