Alan Rogers Review
This is an extensive site set by an attractive weir near the town of Mendigorria, alongside the River Arga. It takes its name from an old disused water mill (molino) close by. The site is split into separate permanent and touring sections. The touring area is a new development with 90 good sized flat pitches with electricity and water for touring units, and a separate area for tents. Many trees have been planted around the site but there is still only minimal shade. The friendly owner, Anna Beriain, will give you a warm welcome.
Reception is housed in the lower part of a long building along with the bar/snack bar which has a cool shaded terrace, a separate restaurant and a supermarket. The upper floor of this building is dormitory accommodation for backpackers. The site has a sophisticated dock and boat launching facility and an ambitious watersports competition programme in season with a safety boat present at all times. There are pedaloes and canoes for hire. The site is very busy during the festival of San Fermín (bull running) in July in Pamplona (28 km). Tours of the local bodegas (groups of ten) to sample the fantastic Navarra wines can be organised by reception.
The well equipped toilet block is very clean and well maintained, with cold water to washbasins. Facilities for children and disabled visitors. Washing machine. Large restaurant, pleasant bar. Supermarket. 2 swimming pools for adults and children (1/6-15/9) including a new indoor pool with spa, and another outside with slide. Bicycle hire. Riverside bar. Weekly entertainment programme (July/Aug) and many sporting activities. Squash courts. River walk. Torches useful. Gas barbecues only. WiFi on part of site (charged).
Mendigorría is 30 km. southwest of Pamplona. From A15 San Sebastián-Zaragoza motorway, leave Pamplona bypass on A12 towards Logon. Leave at km. 23 on NA601 to hilltop town of Mendigorría. At crossroads turn right towards Larraga and downhill to site.Link to campsite location map on google
