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.
This is a really great site. Near a lovely little town. Great walking near the site and around. Very good washrooms, heated in winter which we appreciated. Extremely helpful staff. We took the train to Valencia for the day. Approach is fairly steep but great views when you are pitched. Highly recommended.
The welcome here was very good and because the site is terraced the views are good too. However it is an awkward site to get into and larger units may well have some difficulties. There is a "lip" on the edge of many of the pitches and so manoevering into a pitch may be hard. I ground our grey water tank getting in - luckily without any damage and fortunately there was a helpful person on the next pitch who then helped us in. The water was hot but the facilities could do with updating (the top ones at least - the lower ones were a little better) and a deep clean maybe. The site roads are in fairly poor condition. The cafe was pleasant and friendly & via Verde an attraction. The town of Navajas is fairly small and does not have a lot of shops or anything. We'd use this as a stopover again (though it would depend on what sized unit we had) - unsure if we would stay much longer.
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
Extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff in reception, who seem to switch effortlessly between various languages. Toilet blocks are heated which is a boon in winter. Interesting village nearby with old fashioned shops and a market once a week. Spectacular waterfall nearby, and very attractive countryside for cycling and walking - not just the Via Verde but also the local lanes. However, the pitches can be difficult to get into and we found that in a cold wind, 6A was just not enough to keep us warm. Also, the cassette toilet emptying point is a long walk from the tourist pitches.
Very pleasant staff. Our motorhome is 7.9 metres long and there were only two pitches we could access (one of which was taken) due to to the layout approach to the pitches and for this reason we would not stay here again. There was no privacy between the pitches and a large number of flies in the area. On the plus side, the walking route along the old railway track was pleasant, as were the views from the campsite. We were only there for one night so did got manage to get to the town. The restaurant was closed whilst we were there.
An excellent campsite if you like walking/hiking as the old railway line is only 100 mtrs. away and the lovely town of Navajas with its spectacular waterfall and beautiful houses is within a twenty minute walk away. My wife and myself were there over the weekend and there were very few plots available by early Friday evening and it was quite noisy, so next time we would go during the week. Toilets clean, but foul smell from drains in gents showers. Pitches were shaded by mulberry trees who's sticky fruit had fallen and would stick to your shoes along with the gravel, so had to sweep the entire plot. Wifi available. Would like to return when it is a little cooler and quieter during Spring or Autumn. Friendly, welcoming staff that speak English.
This is a great campsite. It has lots of good walking / cycling opportunities around the area, and its just a short walk into Navajas. Navajas is a proper old town with some unique houses. It is also a train journey into Valencia with takes about an hour. The campsite was mostly English and was quiet when we stayed. The site is terraced but the pitches are a decent size, its a bit of a hill climb to the top - good exercise. The toilets were spotless however the water a little tepid. Reception staff were excellent and had all the information you needed on the area. Would definitely stay here again.
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.
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.
