Camping & Hotel

Stay at our official camping

Stay at the official World Cup campsite during the BMX 2021 World Cup. This campsite is located in the most beautiful area of The Netherlands: the Veluwe. But also in the heart of Elite Sports; Olympic Training Center Papendal. Due to its ideal location, next to the BMX track & the festival site, this campsite is not only extremely suitable when you visit the BMX World Championship or the Ultimate Urban Festival, but also a fantastic starting point to discover the beautiful surroundings of Arnhem. When you book a spot at the official campsite, you will stay with us from Friday, August 13 to Monday, August 23. Enough time to really enjoy your holiday in addition to the competitions and to discover the surroundings of the Veluwe. But make no mistake; because the Netherlands is so wonderfully compact, all (cultural) hotspots such as Amsterdam, the Keukenhof and the beach can be reached within 75 minutes by car! More tourist information is to be found here.
