    I'm a bit confused on this one. Do you mean Den Haag the city? If so, it's about 60kms from Amsterdam.

    We stayed at the site in Delft and got the tram when we visited Den Haag.. Had your problem - it's one of the few parts of the country where it is difficult to find cheap stopovers.

    Couldn't be bothered to work out complex travel from one of the marinas or other camper contact sites.

    The delft site is very good though, so swallowed the cost.

    As above, we stayed at Delft and used the train to go to Amsterdam and there is a tram from Delft runs all the way to Den Haag if you don't fancy the train. By the way, Dutch trains are reasonably priced, very comfortable, and run on time.

    I dont know how long you want to spend in Den Haag.
    There is a company (www.Roompot.com) that have a camp site in Den Haag.
    They have an offer on about €130 for a week

    Thanks all.. Good to know I wasn't missing something and I have found my way round the various sources of info but shame it is such an expensive area.. Den Haag is one of my favourite cities and Ms Tiggs has never been there.. I saw the Delft site and it isn't really expensive compared to UK prices but not what we are used to on the mainland. I will ponder on it..

    We are only going for the weekend. I think a day is enough in Amsterdam but Den Haag needs a couple of days to appreciate..

    I was planning to get the train to Amsterdam but out of interest has anyone driven in to the city? Is there MH parking available during the day?

    I have driven in and out of Amsterdam when attending an exhibition no problem. However, I was lulled into driving colleagues to a restaurant, a nightmare parking and cyclists coming at you from every direction. They have their own traffic lights etc. the railway system is fabulous, use the train.

    I've driven around Amsterdam many times and have found it to be straight forward. You do need to keep you wits about you as JohnH says, there's a lot of traffic there but everyone is very tolerant of cars/vans/motorhomes/trains/busses/cyclists all on the same road!

    We have stayed at Camping Gasper and also Camping Zeeburg and would recommend them both. They're within walking distance of trams that will take you direct to the railways station.

    Personally, I would stay in Den Haag and get the train into Amsterdam.

    Have fun!
