Tandrup campsite

The campsite is divided into a number of smaller sites so it can accommodate anything between a small group of 10 and a large group of 200.  Each smaller site has a specific name that relates to the ‘teepee’ theme.  There is a lake to one side and woodland the other side of the campsite.  There are separate toilet facilities for men and for women, with cold running water.  Cold water outdoor showers can be found behind the toilet block, while cold water washbasins are along the sides.

Rubbish (refuse) must be placed in the shed in the car park.


Out and about

The campsite is located Lake Vandet on one side and state forest on the other, and in the middle of Thy National Park.

Lake Vandet is perfect for all kinds of activities. The campsite has its own access to the lake, and there are old oil drums (clean!) at the campsite, so you can build your own raft.

In the state forest there are a number of shelters within walking distance.  A path system into the forest starts right next to the campsite, with plenty of opportunities for walking or orienteering in the woods.  
Tandrup is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty offering endless possibility for exploring, by bike, car or on foot. 

5 km to Denmark’s largest nature reserve, with many animals and rare plants.

8 km to the old fishing community of Klitmøller that is still a very lively village with many activities, especially in the summer. There is a lovely beach for bathing, and a walk along the beach is lovely at any time of year.

Thisted is 10 km away.  This is the ’capital’ of Thy with plenty of shops and interesting museums.

Hanstholm is 14km away. Explore one of Denmark’s largest fishing ports.  This fish auction is an experience to remember, for those who are up early.
There is also the fascinating archive, museum and bunkers from the Second World War.
