Bivakzone: Strijbeekse Heide - Strijbeek (NL)

Deze grensbivakzone wordt beheerd door Staatsbosbeheer Nederland.

 

This officially recognized bivouac area is managed by the Dutch State Forest Management. It's located in a little forest near Strijbeek in the Netherlands, less than 1 kilometer from the Belgian border. Accessible all year round. No reservation or registration necessary. Max 3 small trekking tents allowed. You can stay up to 72 hrs (3 nights). Free stay. A Dutch bivouac area should not be confused with a small camping, rules are different, comfort facilities limited or non-existent and you are personally responsibility to keep the area spotlessly clean and quiet during your short stay. Strictly forbidden for any motorized vehicle, access only on foot or by bike. No water pump or toilet. Small campfire allowed under normal weather conditions (no dry period or strong winds) but only at the specifically designated place, not elsewhere. Please be very careful when making a camp fire at this bivouac area. Lots of waymarked walking and cycle trails in the area. Enjoy your short stay. Leave no trace, just your footsteps.
