The idea of creating a park here appeared for the first time in the 1920s. In the 1930s the first forest reserves were opened: Granica, Sieraków and Zamczysko. Today, these reserves are much larger and are strictly protected.
The park was created in 1959, covering a total area of 407km2. It covers the ancient Kampinos Forest, and in January 2000 the area was added to UNESCO’s list of biosphere reserves. The Park is now slightly smaller than originally, covering 385.44km2, of which 46.38 km² is strictly protected. The protective zone around the Park covers 377.56 km². Forests account for around 70% of the park’s area, and most the common tree is the pine. The Park’s symbol is the moose.
Kampinoski National Park is located at the biggest river junction in Poland - here valleys of Vistula, Bug, Narew, Wkra and Bzura meet together. There are no lakes, the biggest river of the Park is the Łasica, a tributary to the Bzura, which acts as a water canal.

I watch numerous groups and groups of tourists, especially since we live near one of the hiking trails. Only some of them rest in the better managed leisure and SPORTS of the Wet Meadows. I was there yesterday and i loved it. Basically very clean ... you haven't met the-benches (there is one, else from that era) and could not find even a portable TOILET. Information boards are already very dingy and popaprane by pacykarzy; but in General, it is as the saying goes--IT'S FUN
Very nice place near the capital city. You can enjoy in peace and nature. Good connection with bus. Maybe there could be more information in park, but on the other side it is park and there is no need... more »
Great place for w long walk especially when the spring is coming 😉 you may notice there are even spots for a BBQ and toilets close to the parking. Enjoy the sun, forest and the nature.
