Camping Rio Vero is a quiet, green terraced camping site amidst nature, ideal for finding some peace and quiet. But also adventurers who do not fear water and canyons will feel at home here. The camping site is situated in a forested region of the Spanish Pyrenees, some 5 km from the medieval town of Alquézar. The nature park Sierra y Canones de Guara, renowned for its canyons, pink/red rock formations, flora, fauna and pre-historic rock paintings, is also close by.
The camping site is open and elongated and lies at an altitude of 500 m. It is not excessively maintained or laid-out, but rather blended-in with nature. The Rio Vero river runs alongside the camping site. The camping pitches, with little demarcation and partly under tall trees, offer ample space. There are a few dozen tents and mobile homes for rent.
What do campers look for here?
The camping site mainly focuses on white water rafting enthusiasts and canyon hikers. The less adventurous hiker can walk on well laid out trails along rock faces and gorges. You can bathe and play in the river next to the camping site.
Camping shop and restaurant
The camping shop is a small supermarket with basic foodstuffs. The range is more than adequate. In the shop you can also get material for rafting, canyoning, via ferrata and climbing (buy or rent). The restaurant with cosy terrace and fast service is located at the entrance of the camping site. The menu offers ample choice. There is also a pizzeria. Take-away meals are also offered.
Clean sanitary facilities
The sanitary building, centrally located on the grounds, has rather dated sanitary fittings. Everything is kept in clean condition, though.
