Alan Rogers Review
This campsite is now permanently closed.
Located in a natural park northeast of Burgos, on the edge of the old, small Spanish town of Frias, much of this site is taken up with static units. However, an attractive area at the end is reserved for touring caravans and motorhomes. A beautiful river runs alongside, about 20 feet below the campsite but with access for fishing, and the level, numbered pitches (40 for touring) have views across the really beautiful scenery surrounding the campsite. A little shade is provided from a few trees. This is a very Spanish site (no English is spoken). It may be noisy in summer with lively Spanish visitors but it was quiet when we visited in May.
Facilities are basic with only cold water at washbasins and sinks. A bar houses darts, a pinball machine and five tables for snacks, with another separate restaurant for the serious eaters. The main attraction of this site is the spectacular scenery in the surrounding area. Frias is a medieval town with a castle reached by a trip over the bridge and 1 km. walk. Beautiful scenery awaits both walkers and serious hikers, as well as those wanting to visit hill-top villages and scenic locations by car – definitely rural Spain at its best. Public transport is very limited in this upland region and your own transport is essential.
Site is on the north side of Frias. From A1 exit 5 onto A2122 (Quintana Martin Galindez). After 16 km. turn left signed Frias and site is 3 km. From A1 exit 4 take N232 then 629 to Trespaderne. Turn right (Miranda), then east for 10 km. then right to Frias (Bu504). Site is next to the bridge.
