If you are on your way to the south of Spain or Portugal, you'll find that camping site Pico de la Miel is a suitable stopover camping site. It is situated some sixty km north of Madrid, near the mountain village of La Cabrera. The camping site is somewhat disorderly and consists chiefly of bungalows and chalets, but the swimming pool has been completely renovated and the view of the mountain range is unique.
Chalets and bungalows
Both the camping grounds and the reception have a somewhat cluttered look. Camping site Pico de la Miel is a large camping site, mainly consisting of a maze of bungalows and chalets: there are no less than three hundred permanent pitches and some thirty rental accommodation units. The pathways are mostly unpaved. Most of the permanent guests are Spanish people, who tend to park their cars on the empty touring pitches.
Transit camping site
The touring pitches are located on a separate section of the camping site, which is not easily accessible. The path leading to the pitches is narrow with lots of overhanging branches. This is something to keep in mind if you have a large caravan or motorhome. The touring pitches are rather tight. Most of the grass has gone as well, as a result of which they can get muddy or covered with drift sand. Therefore, Pico de la Miel is primarily suitable as a stopover camping site for one night.
Catering in high season
Centrally located on the camping site there is a square with a playground. All facilities are also found here: a restaurant, a sociable bar with terrace and a camping site shop. These facilities are open in high season (mid- June to mid-September). In low season all catering facilities on the camping site are closed during the week, including the camping site shop.

very handy location enroute to santander ferries , ok for one night stop over . found the site to be requiring upgrading on pitches and toilet block facilities
This has got to be the worst ACSI campsite we have ever been to. The book said that there was full service pitches available. This was not true. They were only for the permanent pitches. There were taps close to some pitches but there was no way of turning them on as the handles had been removed. There was no drinking water available anywhere on the site we were told at reception. The disabled shower was very dark although there was a light outside the shower, it didn\'t work. There was nowhere to hang your clothes without them getting wet so my wife, who is partially sighted, had to, with some difficulty, put her cloths on the baby changing unit away from the shower. She had to hold the shower head as the holder was broken. The door lock did not secure properly and came undone whilst my wife was having a shower. Fortunately I was waiting for her so was able to stand outside the door so no-one could go in.
The pitches were unkempt and there were 4 traveller families there when we arrived and 3 more arrived when we were there. There dogs were allowed to run free and attacked 2 another campers dogs. I would only say this campsite is any good for people for who are desperate for an overnight stay. I would not recommend this campsite.
Stopped here for one night on our way back from the south of Spain. Very easy to find and close to the motorway. Large site with lots of facilities and in a very picturesque setting with mountains in the background. Friendly and helpful staff. Bit disappointed with the toilet facilities. Hot water can only be described as tepid at best.
Stopped on the way north in January 2017 easy to find and just of the A1. Campsite is mostly bungalow style rental with an area left for caravans and Motorhomes. Water on most pitches and electrics spread in random places, in some cases you'd have to run across the paths. Mostly grass with large pitches. Shop on site was open as was a. At style cafe. Great access for walking as it's right next to the park.
Why is this campsite Category 1? Wifi 4 Euros for 1 day! It's good for an overnight stop as it is close to N1. Shops, easy to find and clean. Everything on site closed in early June. Trying to find shade AND a nearby electric point was not easy. Lots of cats around. Shower block clean and basic with lots of hot water.
Decent overnight stop heading north. Close to the motorway. Useful shop on site. Shower facilities decent. Pitches not well differentiated, but flat and easy to access. Would use again.
Quite basic campsite but ok for an overnight stop. The showers had plenty of hot water. Shop and bar were shut while we were there.
Used as a stop over. Would by difficult to pitch a tent as the ground is a stone. Very child friendly and is located in a village with shops and bars. Would use for a stop over again. It is not a luxury place however it is very family friendly and safe at night. 24jul15.
We used this site for its location on our journey south, whilst it is not the best it was okay and did the job, would hate to be there in the summer. Shower block only heated in the mornings. Would use it again as a stopover.
It is generally a site of permanent chalets or caravans with only a few touring pitches (175?? I do not think so!) which appear to be located in one scrubby sandy area with little or no privacy. Electric cables must in many cases be run across access roads with inherent dangers. The bar/restaurant/supermarket was closed. Toilet & washing up facilities were in need of maintenance as was a lot of the site. One night was more than enough.
