1920 - 1965
Start (camping)tourism in Bredene
  1. The beach and dunes in Bredene have attracted people for ages.
  2. In the mid-20s adventurers pitched their tent haphazardly in the dunes.
  3. As camping wild in the dunes had been prohibited in 1932, campers then put up their tents in the Paelsteenveld and on the fields of local farmers.
  4. Over the years camping became more and more organized which led to the creation of the first real campsites. Arthur Claeys, Robert Ryckx, Oscar Devos, Verkempinck and widow Geldhof are but a few names amongst the first generation of campsite owners.
