Alan Rogers Review

This site is situated just beyond the town of Castañares de Rioja. This is a very busy site during the peak season with a huge sporting and play area and a predominantly Spanish clientele. In low season it is quieter, with limited facilities available. There are 100 touring pitches, 6 bungalows for hire and around 400 private accommodations on this five hectare site. These are separated by hedges and trees allowing privacy. Each has their own water, drainage and electricity connection. There is one very large sanitary block. To the rear of the site is the Oja river and there are views of the Obarenes mountains in the distance. Some noise from the main road is possible.

Camping de la Rioja is essentially a Spanish weekend and high season fun site with just a few touring pitches in the middle. In high season you will get the feel of being in a Spanish township with the accompanying family bustle, excitement and noise. Whilst the site is open all year, the low season is given over to maintenance with a low level of provision, although the restaurant and bar are always open. There are many historic places worth visiting and naturally, being in Rioja, plenty of local wine to taste. A walk or cycle into the town of Castañares will enable you to sample the local cuisine.


The central sanitary facilities are old and traditional in style but clean. Open style washbasins and controllable showers. Laundry facilities. Shop (w/ends only in low season). Bar, restaurant, takeaway (on request). Outdoor swimming pool (20/6-20/9} supervised. Multisports court. Football. Tennis. River fishing. Children’s cycle circuit. Play area. Electric or gas barbecues only.
