Camping Altomira is situated between the Espadán and Calderona nature reserves, some 25 km from the Mediterranean and an hour's drive from the fascinating city of Valencia. It is a quiet spot from where you can venture anywhere. From the camping site there are wonderful walking and cycling routes over paved trails.
The steep, terraced camping site offers reasonably large, beautifully laid out pitches on compacted gravel. On the lowest section you will find many permanent pitches, as well as most of the facilities. Rental accommodation units (bungalows) are located on the middle section. On the top section, campers have a splendid view of Navajas and the surrounding area. The pitches here are demarcated with hedges and are sheltered by an artificial sunroof.
Nice swimming pool
There is a lovely swimming pool with separate toddler pool (depth 50 cm) surrounded by sun loungers. It is a wonderful area to relax in the shade of the pine trees.
Walking along former mining routes
Children can play to their heart's content on a play area and sports field. Furthermore, there is an entertainment programme in high season. There are also excursion programmes and guided walks. Starting from the camping site are some great walking and cycling routes over the so-called 'camis verdes', paved trails on former narrow-gauge railway lines used for mining. There is a bicycle workshop for campers with their own bicycle. Very handy when your push-bike has to be repaired.
There is an excellent restaurant with limited menu (daily menu) where you can also eat delicious paella for a very reasonable price. Daily fresh bread is available. There is a supermarket at a distance of only 4 km. There are a few barbecues on the camping site.

This campsite is perfect for location as you are close to so many scenic places of interest (caves, waterfalls, natural lakes). The reception desk almost doubles up as a tourist information and the staff are so helpful to ensure you enjoy your stay. The pitches are tiered and terraced which run up a steep bank, offering excellent views but tired legs! The pitches are spacious but set on very hard ground and if in a tent you will need to ask reception for their steel nails to use as pegs. There was a lot of cats on site which would kindly leave their mess underneath the gravel covering on the pitches. This was only a mild annoyance given the postives of this campsite. The area has some of the most beautiful sights to see but make sure you have a car to visit many of them.
Fantastic site with super facilities. Sanitary warm and clean. Terraced pitches for tourers with great views across the valley.
The only downside - some of the parcelas are quite small, there was no room for an awning even on our small camper. Many parcel as had a steep kerb at the entrance making access difficult if van has low exhaust.
Proximity to Via Verd makes it easy to access good walking
planed to stay a couple of nights but loved it here and stayed 6. refurbed touring pitches with services including own sink. toilet block heated and hot showers. bar/rest very good and excellent food. 3 course menu in week. Navajas small town 10 min walk as is train to Valencia. great cycle opportunities on quiet roads or old railway cycle route at back of campsite that runs for miles. pool looks good but not open yet.
A good site for a couple of night if you have Been travelling down or up to Bilbao etc. The toilets and shower are good .the staff are friendly easy to talk to. Restaurant / bar are okay pitch are big enough for or 7 m motorhome get into and out off the site is not a problem
we stopped here en-route to Portugal and ended up staying for a week. Steep access road to pitches but with a well matched car/caravan should be no problem. Large twin axle caravans will struggle to get on most pitches unless you have a mover. Also most pitches are quite small and may not have room for car caravan and awning. However site is in a lovely location with great views and direct access to a 250km off road cycle route. Good walking opportunities are a plenty with a national park close by. Be aware that the bar/restaurant are closed for two weeks during December and re-open after Xmas. Will definitely come back here when the weather is a little warmer to fully explore/cycle/ride the area. Toilet blocks are a somewhat dated and could do with being updated but they do the job. Staff very friendly and helpful
Our second stay at this campsite, which is easy to find and very close to A23 road. Good, inexpensive bar with a friendly staff. Close to town, which is pretty and shabby in equal parts. Clean, efficient showers and facilities. Good shade and clean pitches. Steep hill up to ppitches.
Yet another great site, the staff a the location on a via verde is perfect well worth a visit. The views from the pitch could be charged extra for!
We disagree with many reviews. We found the wc/shower block at the top of the site very poor... and the other 2 blocks little better. The staff are super. The only pitch available to us had a huge kerb at one end and was very difficult to access. We had contacted the site in advance, and were advised there was no need to book as there would be plenty of availability, but the site was quite full. We had intended staying 5 night but moved north the next day.
Best campsite we've stayed in during our 2 months in Spain. Staff in reception were extremely helpful and encouraging of our (limited) Spanish language skills. Toilets and showers very clean, loads of hot water. Plenty of walking & cycling in the area. Local shopkeepers very welcoming and friendly.
We had planned this as a 1 night stop, well we stayed 7 nights. After reading previous reviews we considered it as a night over but found a little gem! Yes, the access to the pitches can be difficult due to the kerbs but I managed with our TA 8m caravan without a mover. One of the reviews complained the chemical toilet emptying point was far from the touring pitches, there was one at each of the heated toilet blocks, but positioned by the washing up sinks a rather unusual place. The touring area is at the top of the terraced site, views were stunning. The Via Verde, an old railway track that is now a cycle/walk way passes the edge of the site and goes for miles in both directions. The local town has a few shops, a bar or two and a walk that has waterfalls. There was a better supermarket at Jerica, 5 miles of easy cycle along the Via Verde. Reception staff very helpful, site walking distance from station and Valencia return was 8.75€.
