It is a private national park, owned by Vereniging Natuurmonumenten, the largest nature conservation organisation in the Netherlands.The landscape of the park consists of forests and heathland, which is kept open by grazing of Highland cattle, and a small sand drift, which is kept open by human maintenance. The native fauna is represented by red deer, wild boar, badger and the regionally rare pine marten.
