Holiday park & campsite with entertainment, swimming pool, indoor playground, restaurants and leisure activities

We do camping! And we've been doing it for more than 50 years here at Südsee-Camp in Northern Germany, 29649 Wietzendorf.

Welcome to our family campsite - SÜDSEE-CAMP since 1970

What makes a holiday at Südsee-Camp so special?

Our goal: holidays for the whole family!

We are a holiday resort for families with a campsite and rental accommodations in the Lüneburg Heath near Soltau.

At the heart of the Südsee-Camp is our bathing lake with white sandy beach and lighthouse.

‘Holidays for young and old’ is our motto.

Open all year round, we offer fun and variety for your family holiday!

What's on offer at the Südsee-Camp?

Our offer: diverse & varied

Our entertainment programme, an indoor fun pool with wave pool, indoor playground with a pirate theme, the riding stables, high ropes course, an adventure mini-golf course and several restaurants and shops round off the offer at Südsee-Camp and provide the best conditions for an adventure holiday that will make children's eyes light up.

When children are happy, parents can relax! 

What could be better? While the kids swim in the 3.5-hectare natural swimming lake, our Südsee, or play with each other and new friends on the beach or in one of the playgrounds, the adults can sit back and relax or have a good time and enjoy their holiday to the full!

We know this because we are family people ourselves and have our own adorable children.
