Welcome on vacation

at Uhlenköper-Camp Uelzen

Eco-camping at its best: on the small Uhlenköper-Camp on the outskirts of the Hanseatic City of Uelzen everyone finds their favorite place: cosy and comfortable for longer stays, convenient and easy for a visit with bike or mobile home.

While the big ones enjoy a coffee on the sunny terrace, the children rave in the swimming pool, on the playground or on the brook. Great pleasure for the little ones is also provided by the nature and animals on the campsite. A washing machine and a dryer for “afterwards” are available in the well-kept sanitary area.

The Uhlenköper-Camp is an ideal starting point for canoeing, cycling tours, tree climbing adventures or excursions to the surrounding countryside – and a welcome destination after an exciting day.

We do not rest on our many awards – for whishes and suggestions we always have an open ear. Enjoy relaxed and varied days in a family atmosphere – we look forward to seeing you!
