Alan Rogers Review
This site, in a peaceful location surrounded by tall trees and impressive towering rock formations, caters for 240 units (of which 100 are seasonal) on slightly sloping ground. There are many marked pitches on different levels, all with access to electricity (6A), but with varying amounts of shade. There are also attractive tent and small camper sections set close in to the rocks and 22 site owned chalets. The site gets very crowded in high season, so it is best to arrive early if you have not booked. The reasonably sized swimming pool and children’s pool have access lifts for disabled campers.
This is a good site for disabled visitors, although the ramps to one of the toilet blocks are steep. The site is used by tour operators and there are some site-owned chalets. There is a large Spanish presence at weekends, especially in high season, so if you wish to share the boisterous atmosphere, see if you can get one of the pitches near the restaurant area. Comillas fiesta is in mid-July and the site is extremely busy.
Three well placed toilet blocks, although old, are clean and all include controllable showers and hot and cold water to all washbasins. Facilities for children and disabled visitors. Washing machines and dryers. Motorhome services. Small supermarket. Bar/snack bar plus separate more formal restaurant. Swimming pool (caps compulsory). Playground. Activities and entertainment (high season). ATM. Torches useful in some places. No electric barbecues. WiFi over site (charged by card).
From A8 (Santander-Oviedo) take km. 249 exit (Cabezón and Comillas) and turn north on CA135 towards Comillas. At km. 7 turn right on CA359 to Ruilobuca and Barrio la Iglesia. After village turn right up hill on CA358 to site on right.Link to campsite location map on google
