Kamperveen is a village in the Dutch province of Overijssel. It is located in the municipality of Kampen, about 5 km south of the city.

Kamperveen was a separate municipality until 1937, when it became a part of IJsselmuiden.[3]

History

It was first mentioned in 1236 as "in Veno prope Campen", meaning "the bog of Kampen", and was originally a peat colony.[4]

Kamperveen is a confusing village, because it is a merger of the hamlets De Heuvels, De Roskam, De Zande, Hogeweg, Posthoorn and Zuideinde, therefore, it does not have a clear centre. There are directional signs to Kamperveen, however each hamlet is marked with its own name.[5]
