Helaas is er op deze camping flink last van de processierups!! Huisdiereigenaren PAS OP!!
Wij zijn hier in de winter, maar ze vallen met hele nesten uit de pijnbomen! Gevaarlijk voor mens en dier! Hier moet de eigenaar echt aan de slag. Jammer want de ligging is prima voor en paar daagjes!

Usefully placed just off the autoroute however the \"welcome\" was nonexistent. Trying to pay by card was declined. The facilities were barely ok - dated and due for a real clean. The surroundings are very nice indeed and there was no real noise from the autoroute. We\'d use it again as an overnighter but only because there is nothing else in the area.

Bij aankomst moeilijk communicerende man, geeft geen enkele aanwijzing, wil kenteken caravan hebben. Aangewezen plaats kan niet vanwege boom in het midden. Zelf plaats uitgezocht, dan weer geen electriciteit. Terug naar kantoor, man afwezig, zit in bar, zet electra aan .
Sanitair van prehistorische kwaliteit, stinkt. Afwas plaats nog nooit zo slecht gezien. Je moet op je plaats water tappen vanuit liggende houding. Chemisch toilet geweldig onhandig en smerig. Alleen wifi goed en gratis. Afrader, kom hier nooit meer terug.

It is a one night stop place really. The shanty town of static installations seems to fund the local team who were seen baiting traps for wildlife on site at 2330 on the same day that the ACSI inspectors were encamped opposite me!!!
The toilets are superficially clean but feaces in one corner of a shower certainly put me off the place. I will never return. Yuk!

Medio juni camping bezocht om o.a. Ubeda en Baeza te bezichtigen.Nauwelijks gasten op de camping,zwembad leeg,restaurant en bar dicht. Geheel maakt een sombere indruk. Natuurpark is fraai, La Carolina enige stadje waar e.e.a. te doen is.

Accès au camping un peu délicat pour grande caravane. Emplacements non délimités par des haies ou autres. Village à proximité. Agréable pour une pause en pleine forêt dans un cadre splendide.

Es uno de los pocos camping que se encuentran los viajeros que se dirigen a la costa sur, así que es un punto de descanso con pocas alternativas. Es un lugar tranquilo en el que se puede descansar bien.

El camping presenta un estado general de descuido. Los aseos están razonablemente limpios pero envejecidos, con desconchones, baldosas rotas, perchas viejas y sin pestillos en puertas de aseos.

No todas las duchas tienen agua caliente y, las que tienen agua caliente no permiten ajustar la temperatura del agua.

Los suministros de agua y electricidad en las parcelas acusan también este abandono. Las tomas de agua son muy incómodas y están envejecidas. Las tomas eléctricas tienen defectos de toma de tierra.

Es una pena, porque el entorno es estupendo y podría ser un buen punto de partida para explorar el parque natural de Despeñaperros.

si te cobran como temporada alta en semana santa, que menos que te atiendan como tal, y pongan a disposicion mas servicios de los que te prestan durante esa fecha, y un repasito obligado necesitan los aseos.

Camping y entorno precioso pero aseos antiguos y mucha falta de limpieza
Personal no muy simpatico y en general poco recomendable si no fuera por el entorno y el camping.
Espero que mejoren y poder visitarlo por su entorno maravilloso

Really nice location - not much info from staff and pitches allocated despite only a few over nighters staying - assume you could change if desired but no info given?
As early in season nothing open but being adjacent to National park walking good. Dog owners will need to be vigilant from March onwards any the wooded cover is pine and there are very many nests of Processionary caterpillars to be seen
