Campsite Bardenas

General information
Guide price €27.00

Camping site Bardenas is situated near the northern Spanish town of Villafranca, close to nature reserve Bardenas Reales. Bardenas is situated in a quiet area amidst nature. Not much tourism in evidence. The camping site lies along a main road. This minor issue is more than compensated for by the presence of the sun, the large swimming pool and the excellent restaurant.

New camping site

Camping Bardenas is a rather new camping site, hence the facilities (such as reception, sanitation, restaurant) are contemporary and good. The demarcated pitches are fairly large. There are many trees on the grounds, offering shelter against the blazing sun. The sandy/loamy ground is rock hard when dry, so please bring nail tent pegs and a hammer. Do not feel like hammering pegs into the ground? You can hire one of the hiker's huts, apartments or bungalows. The sanitary facilities are modern and clean.

Swimming pool

The large and well-kept swimming pool is located in a corner of the camping grounds. Generously tiled around the pool and enclosed (mesh fencing), hence safely fenced off for the little ones. The surrounding large sunbathing lawn with a lovely grassed surface is located directly behind the enclosure. There are some fixed sun umbrellas in places. There is a small playground, a fitness room and some other sports facilities, such as a badminton field and tennis court.

Excellent food

The spacious restaurant is also frequented by non-camping guests because of the chef's cuisine. Take-away meals are also offered. The camping shop is compact, but stocks all basic necessities and has fresh bread daily. Otherwise, you can do your shopping in the village of Villafranca, 2 km down the road.

Not again. This camp is the worst I have been in Spain. Smell of pigs is terrible and mosquito's everywhere. Even for one night stopover is very expensive. Avoid this camp!!!!

Would not return, too expensive, I can not se where they can justify the price. Small uneven pitches, smelly, lots of road noise and the occasional train just add to the enjoyments. NOT! Wifi could have been replaced by snail mail, it was that slow, and to top it all, they charged 1.20 euros for a loaf that would have been 30-40 cents elsewhere. Not impressed at all and not going back!

What a great site, couldn't fault the facilities but what a shame about the smell of pigs. As a person that used to rear pigs I didn't find the smell too bad at first but the next morning the farmer was spreading the slurry on the fields well what a pong. The railway was close by along with the busy road but we hardly heard much noise from either. A good site for a one night stop over

The most uncomfortable night of my 2 week camping tour of Spain & France. The smell from the local farm is noxious at times but the worst aspect was the biting/ stinging mosquitos leaving me feeling most unwell and uncomfortable for the remainder of the trip. Prices in bar were a bit steep. Definitely one to avoid.

We have overnighted twice here now and would not recommend it to anybody. We were here this week and the previously mentioned problems of the stench of sewage, terrible biting flies or mosquitos, rough pitches and poor or non existent internet were all evident. The pool, according to Acsi is open from the start of May, but was devoid of water in June. As mentioned by other reviewers, the road is busy and very close by the railway is close but not so bad. Unfortunately it is situated where there are few alternatives. The bar was not bad but was expensive (captive audience). David on the reception was not as bad as some have made him out and tried to help. The pitches are uneven and some could not be accessed with a motorhome as the rear of the vehicle would touch down on trying to enter the pitch.

Great for a one night stop as food is availalable untill 20:00 although tapas snacks seem to be constantly available and used by locals. No matter where you park road noise throughout the night is unavoidable the ACSI inspector must have a hearing inpairment as no indication is made of the noise from the main road and railway line.

We went on the review in the ACSI website and must say that we have been disappointed.
The website states that water connection and Waste connection are available within 15 meters of the site. This is not true. The only dump site is at the entrance. The Campsite has superb shower/toilet facilities but the sites are overgrown and full of weeds. The campsite is situated with a busy road on one side and a Railway not far away on the opposite side. Judging by the odour a "Pig" farm is close by. There are some beautiful towns and villages nearby and so all in all we enjoyed our stay. We will however not be back. David the reception staff member was very helpful. I feel that this is very excessive.

Not much else to say really. The site is in the middle of nowhere, but saying that there must be some civilisation nearby as the road is v busy with trucks. Internet works within 20 m of reception. Fortunately it was dry on our stopover. Avoided the site on the way back.

We stopped over for one night. The receptionist, young male was surly and disinterested making sure he had finished the track on his iPod before speaking. Toilet block was clean but with the irritating push button for water that lasted a maximum of 2 seconds before needing pressing again. The pitches are in a terrible state deeply rutted and as soon as any moisture hits them they turn into a mud bath. I concur it is noisy but bearable and there was a terrible farm yard smell most of the evening. Arrive late and leave early, one night only; don't holiday there.

Travelling party: Seniors

Only suitable for a night halt. Many of the pitches were simply a 'mud bath'. we were told to choose any pitch but most were taped off. We were told that the wi-fi covered 80% of the camping ground but all of the plots where it is accessible were either occupied by static caravans or tourers on seasonal pitches. The nearby town has absolutely no charm. The adjacent road is very noisy. If we had looked around before we paid / booked in we would have driven on to the municipal in Zaragoza. However the bar and restaurant were good, the pool looked clean and nice though closed for the low season. The toilet facilities are in good condition. The description in the main ACSI book should reflect the conditions on the site, as we had no internet at the last site and could not check the reviews. I wish we had. All the reviews describe the same problems that we encountered.
