    Hi
    We are visiting friends and family in Amsterdam and the Hague this weekend and wondered if anyone had any tips for easily accessible free spots to park? Camper contact has a few paying (not cheap) Aires type places but we're on a bit of a mission to camp wild to save money.
    Any tips greatly appreciated p

    can your friends not suggest anywhere

    I think you will need to get your hand in your pocket from my experience in Holland

    Its nice to save a bit, but when will it end, will you push the MH to save some more :)

    May be too late- sorry,but we are just back from Amsterdam city camp: and on leaving found free camping near there! we came out of the aire turned right( road blocked left) straight across the lights at end of this road. We were heading to main road about 300 yes down this street- but road was shut so we had to go right at the last junction before main road. This was opposite big factory's and or Peugot garage with canal lhs factory's rhs.There were several vans there in shady spot lots spaces with garages over the verge if they were big. Looked like people had been there some time. Looked lovely too. All other street parking on roads nearer City Camp was dodgy- we biked along roads and there was broken glass from Windows everywhere. Hope you have great time if still there xx

    Campercontact is owned and operated by the NKC (Dutch Camper Club) and also employs +/- 20 volunteers to keep the information on the site up-to-date,

    so If they are not listed in Campercontact in all probability they don't exist ....

    as said.. wild camping is illegal in the Netherlands..

    City camp wants some beating, not free, but secure and free ferry straight to the railway station.

    The only time I wild camped in Amsterdam I was parked between two caravans in a suburban street for one night. Amsterdam strikes me as a fairly wild city to be wildcamping in, especially if you have a shiny foreign MH.
