The other reviews are fairly accurate. We stayed here so that we could visit Madrid and it was ideal for this as the station has a frequent fast train and free parking (albeit you generally have to park on the waste land surrounding the station).

Having stayed at other Spanish campsites which were generally small and quieter, this was quite a large campsites which was predominantly occupied by Spanish families who seem to be staying for a good part of their summer holiday. It was therefore lively, with entertainment in the evening which could get a bit noisy as it went on until after 11pm. It was good-natured though.

It has a useful little supermarket, the pool was generally quite crowded and a little cold and there is a bar/restaurant which serves decent food for a reasonable price. The campsite staff are very helpful and speak English, with less English spoken in the bar/restaurant. However, you can get by. They also do breakfast if you want it which was quite nice.

It has a popular children's playground which our children enjoyed, possibly more than the swimming pool which did seem to attract boisterous Spanish teenagers. This was the only site in Spain where we had this slight problem.

You can hire kayaks and paddle on the river which surrounds the site, although this was disproportionately expensive as it was 9 per person. It had only cost us five euros for a rowing boat in the centre of Seville.

The toilets are generally okay but could probably do with a little bit of maintenance. However, in comparison to some Spanish campsites they are well maintained, have piped music and are air conditioned.

We had a pitch overlooking the river but there was a wire fence between us and the river which was perhaps not that attractive. The pitch was a good size but there are some smaller pitches so it is probably worth booking. Most of the pictures seem to have good access to electricity and water.

There is a lovely cycle into the town of Aranjuez which is worth a visit to see the palace. We also went to the Warner Brothers theme park which is about 20 minutes away which is also worth a visit and you can buy tickets at the campsite. The park has a free second day offer but if you go, you must make sure you register at the end of the first day to get your free second day.

Fairly accessible to the main north/south motorway (A4) so useful either as a place to visit Madrid or as a stop over heading south.

Stayed here for a week, but arrived on a BH weekend & Mother's Day so VERY busy with Spanish families who visit from Madrid on a weekend to their permanent set-ups. But come Sunday the site was calm and peaceful. We pitched at the far end (170) and enjoyed a lovely grassy, although rather lumpy area, with water and drainage to hand which is always very useful. Noise from the ducks on the river at various times of day and night and a small amount of road noise. Another pitch worth look at is overlooking the river (go straight ahead from the entrance gate) The reception staff were very polite and helpful on all occasions and the site shop was very well stocked. The pool was a good size and clean with ma you loungers packed around it, many worn and slightly broken but still useable. We dined in the riverside restaurant one night and had a lovely meal which was reasonably priced, but not cheap. The town of Aranguez is mainly modern but with the beautiful palace (worth paying the extra 4 for the English guided tour). Extensive gardens, Gardens del Principe (not much planting but tree lined avenues) but lovely to stroll through and don't miss Casa del Labrador, the very extravagent secondary residence, incredibly ornate rooms shown on a guided tour (English only at 3pm?). The surrounding roads are very quiet and good for cycling and also into town. There are two Lidl supermarkets and a huge E. Lecerc near the stadium and fire station. A further afield must see is Chinchon (more atmospheric on a weekend). All in all a lovely place for a relaxed extended stay (our two days turned into seven!)

For our five night stay, we opted for one of the smaller pitches due to its preferred location but just about managed to pitch caravan and awning, park the car, despite a tree being at the entrance.

The location near to the city is good since some days you have no need to take the car. We had enjoyable days out at Toledo and Chinchon, but decided to pass on Madrid this time having done several cities this trip.

Toilet/shower facilities are kept very clean, but in need of some maintenance to repair broken tiles, door catches and so on.

Unfortunately our stay included a weekend when the atmosphere of the site changed completely with an influx of extremely noisy campers. One night we had a group of young people on the next pitch who erected three tents and came back in the early hours of Sunday morning, laughing and talking loudly.

Behind us was what looked to be a long-term set up occupied by a young couple with a dog which barked and growled if people, dogs or one of the assorted cats got near.

Come 8pm on the Sunday evening it became quieter and more bearable.

Would we recommend the site? Yes, but avoid a Friday and Saturday night if you prefer a quieter environment. Being low season, the ACSI rate of 16 per night was a positive, though as I checked in I was offered 7 nights for the price of 6.

Five days here on our way south west. Cheerful, friendly (and very pretty) staff, speaking perfect English. Level pitches, enclosed by shoulder height hedges. Takes ACSI cards.

It chucked it down every night, but the water drained away, to where I do not know!

Toilets were immaculate. We did not use the restaurant, but the bar was friendly enough.

Royal Palace in town a tremendous venue, especially if you are 65+ when it was only 4 euros each: catch the petit train to it at the campsite. You also get a free entry to the Royal barge museum just by the campsite.

Access to Madrid by train was easy, and cost only 7. 80 return. Prado museum a must see, but the city tour bus was a bit of disappointment as there is very little to see from the bus: you have to get on/off to appreciate the sites and we just didn't have the time or the energy! It was quite expensive at 21, but us wrinklies get it for 9!

Next stop Camping Caceres.

There are a number of sites in and around Madrid, and this one is to the south of the city, in an attractive town famous for its royal palace and gardens which are known as the Spanish Versailles. Madrid can be reached by train, and it's also within easy reach of Toledo.

The site is medium sized, grassy, with lots of tall plane trees. Pitches are colour-coded according to size - yellow, red and blue (the largest) and with an ACSI card the charge is the same for all of them. The yellow pitches are very small, but the red and blue are of a good size. Some are so deep it's possible to park up without unhitching - useful for people passing through. There are a lot of permanent pitches as the site is popular with Madrilenos at weekends, and a lot of the touring pitches are in among them. We found it peaceful from Monday to Friday, but it would probably be pretty lively at weekends.

The three toilet blocks were all clean, enclosed and well-heated. Showers were fully controllable, wash basins had soap, and some were inside cubicles for privacy.

In summer there are a lot of organised activities and a good-sized swimming pool. Bikes can be hired and the surrounding parkland is ideal for cycling. The site has a good supermarket and an excellent restaurant and bar, with a terrace overlooking the river. The set menu was good value at 9 euros.

There are plenty of shops and supermarkets in Aranjuez, including an enormous Leclerc. The Royal Palace and town centre are a short walk from the site through pleasant gardens. There is a road-train which does tours of the gardens, and boats for sightseeing trips on the river. Canoes can be hired from the campsite.

A lot of people use this as a stopover on their way to the Costas from Santander/Bilbao, but it's worth spending a few days as it's an interesting area.
