Bargerveen Nature Reserve is a Dutch nature reserve included in the Natura 2000 ecological network. Since 2006 it has formed part of the Bourtanger Moor-Bargerveen International Nature Park (Internationaler Naturpark Bourtanger Moor-Bargerveen), a transboundary nature reserve on the Netherlands/German border. Most of the transboundary nature reserve, some 134 km2 (52 sq mi), lies in Germany. It lies in the west of the German state of Lower Saxony as well as in the north-east of the Netherlands (the Dutch province of Drenthe). The sparsely populated landscape is formed by big peat areas, heather and small lakes.

The Dutch part of the nature reserve was founded in 1992 as Natuurreservaat Bargerveen. Bargerveen has a size of 21 km2 (8.1 sq mi). It is mainly formed by bog and is a Ramsar Site.

Before peat extraction was discontinued, some of the wetland area had become degraded. Restoration work to improve water retention has been undertaken by the Staatsbosbeheer, the agency which manages the site. The work was supported by the European Union's LIFE programme. Bargerveen has been twinned with two Irish Ramsar Sites, Clara Bog and Raheenmore Bog, which were identified as needing active management measures.

Bargerveen is a Special Protection Area for bird-life. It is also an Important Bird Area.

Now an insect hotel, this house was previously occupied by a family, the last people to live at Bargerveen.
