Bike Touring Highlight
The Koolhofput is a pond that is located to the north of the West Flemish town of Ramskapelle, in the municipality of Nieuwpoort.
The 10 ha pond was created in the 1990s by sand extraction for the construction of the A18.
The lake is now a recreational area with hiking trails, birdwatching huts and the like, and it is also used for fishing. The lake is connected to the Nieuwpoort-Dunkirk Canal via the Koolhofvaart. The Frontzate runs in the immediate vicinity of the lake and there are relics from the First World War.
The area is now part of the Provincial Domain Frontzate.
