In the north of Portugal, on the inner edge of National Park Peneda-Gerês, lies camping Lima Escape. Here you stay beneath high fir trees with the Lima river at your feet and magnificent nature surrounding you. Ideal for seekers of peace and for hikers. On the campsite you will mostly find very satisfied campers, irrespective of whether they are staying in a tent, caravan, mobile home or in one of the exciting tree huts or luxury glamping tents.
Tree hut and glamping tent
The sloping grounds offer spacious pitches with a lot of shade or with some shade. Glamping tents, mobile homes, apartments and bungalows as well as a few exciting tree huts can be booked. There is no TV or WiFi in the glamping tents and tree huts. How peaceful is this?
The Lima River
You can swim in the Lima river. The grounds also border a lake/recreational water.
Lima Escape offers a wide variety of activities and entertainment: from walking, cycling, jeep safari and horse riding to wine tasting at the local wineries (vinho verde). Also make sure to visit one of the natural lakes, water falls and make unexpected discoveries in National Park Peneda-Gerês. The campsite provides several cycling routes for the sporty cyclist. There is a (free) WiFi spot.
Restaurant Adega do Arthur with a comprehensive menu of high-quality dishes is located on the camping grounds. It is a lovely, lively place with a large shaded terrace. In addition to great meat and fish dishes, they also serve vegetarian dishes and have a menu for children. The campsite also offers fresh bread and there is a small shop.
The sanitary facilities have recently been renovated and are kept in a tidy and clean condition.

Very unhappy to find this campsite is closed in November despite being listed as open 12/12. Summer critical fire restrictions limit access to much of Portugal during the summer months. Frustrating to come outside of the fire restrictions to then find so many campsites closed
This is a lovely site within a wooded area in the mountains. It was perfect for walking in the hills to visit the ancient villages with their amazing granite houses. Paths are well way marked. The site is well laid out. Accommodation options include glamping tents and super tree houses though we were in a campervan. The shower/toilet blocks were of a high standard. Would highly recommend this site.
Beautiful campsite directly at a big lake. There are a lot of places to put up your tent (big or small) or park your caravan. They also have tee pee tents and small cabins for rent. The restaurants food is amazing and the staff is great and hard working! There is a basketball court and a small playground on the site. Electricity is available at some spots and for the tents there is no assigned spot.
Stayed here October 2017. Lovely peaceful site. Facilities now updated so ignore comments earlier about showers. Bar and restaurant excellent and great walks into mountains. Will definitely come back. Motorhomers.
What a great find. Only a few other motorhome on the site. Pitches are in pine trees so vary in size and slope. Toilet facilities have been upgraded but new showers have no timer so you have to keep pressing the button to maintain flow. Tricky to wash with one hand. Great walks in the National Park.
Very dog friendly and an absolutely great restaurant on site. Very popular with the locals, serves first class food at low prices. Best value for money I have had anywhere. Try the steak.
This is a lovely site in a beautiful natural setting . Camping is random amongst the trees which provide shade.
Location by the river and at the start of many walking trails. The showers are TERRIBLE, probably the worst I have ever come across in Europe. There are no proper chemical disposal points just one open drain which shares the drinking water tap!
Good restaurant and very good staff. The pitches are poorly marked and not many are flat. Sadly the toilet and washing blocks are very poor. Clean but ancient, back to nature yes but back to the dark ages no.
Nature lovers will appreciate this place and enjoy its tranquillity. It is an excellent base for extended trekking in the beautiful national park (-> Rother Wanderführer). The bar/restaurant features a shady and airy terrace, the waiters are extremely friendly and unobtrusive and let you stay and enjoy the free wlan without ordering anything. But since drinks are very cheap, don't miss the excellent coffees - and do try the local beer varieties. Food is good too.
We have travelled extensively throughout Portugal and this site has to be one of the best in Northern Portugal. It is ideal for those who wish to enjoy the tranquillity of forest camping and to be able to explore the history of the region and tour the beautiful countryside and the real Portugal. The site has exactly what it says it has. The restaurant has to be rated as one of the best on any campsite and serves excellent food. The bar with free WIFI enables one to have a pleasant stay. The manageress and staff are very helpful. We stayed at Lima Escape for 4 nights and only moved on because of prior arrangements. We would certainly use this site again.
