Alan Rogers Review
This tranquil site on flat ground is overlooked on three sides by the hills and mountains of the Sierra de la Demanda which give the site its name. There is a little shade over 60 large, open pitches which have access to 3/6A electricity and water. The modern buildings are of local stone and wood and provide a pleasant set of facilities. The whole site is securely fenced. There is a dam 300 m. away and the reservoir provides watersports, swimming and fishing. Four long distance cross-country footpaths are close to the site, which is a 30 minute drive from Burgos.
Puerta de la Demanda is 11 km. from Atapuerca, a most important historical find. Set in 50 unspoilt hectares, it shows the origins of prehistoric people, their culture and their move from Africa to Europe. The surrounding area has many miles of hills, woods and expansive vistas with well signed long distance paths. Shooting and fishing are both possible in appropriate seasons and with permits. In winter skiing takes place at 25 km. The helpful and welcoming Russian family who run the site, and whose daughter Kristina who speaks English, provide extensive local information, maps and leaflets. This includes information about the important city of Burgos which is a World Heritage Site. Various sized wooden cabins and Bengali tents are available to rent.
Sanitary building with WCs and free hot showers. Washing machine and dryer. Facilities for disabled campers. Bar (with terrace, snacks and TV) and restaurant. Basic provisions can be ordered from the bar (all season). Bicycle hire. Small play area. WiFi in bar area (free).
