Travelling party: Family with children <4 years

What a wonderful campsite! Awesome location with great views of the Picos. Superfriendly staff who helped out where to go with our two little kids. Well stocked camping store where you can rent blankets and sleeping bags for cold Picos nights.

The charming camping restaurant was great for a drink, but the must have had a new chef for this summer and as the food was undercooked on two occasions and we had to send it back.

Tip: The camping has two terraces with a few spots for tents a bit higher up the mountain that are very quiet and have an hour or so more evening sun. It\'s a little walk to all facilities though.

English speaking, very friendly and helpful.
Great situation surrounded by mountains. Washing block new and very clean but no hot water for showering. Visited in May so facilities not fully open. Great for walking but be prepared for steep up and down walks.
