Reviewer: Diz-e-dee 5 reviews from this member

After 5 hours of trying to find somewhere to camp in the area we were grateful to stay anywhere. I am just glad I hadn't booked to stay longer.

As the previous review said, it is quite chaotic in the lower area and the mind boggles how some people get to their tents after dark. However, there is an easy going atmosphere even when the place is packed to the brim as it was when we stayed. If you like peace and quiet then this is not the place for you although it wasn't too noisy late at night. We were put in a parking space right by the gate in the residential area next to the main road, this was without electricity or a close water supply. We had a useful early morning wakeup when several of the residents left, presumably, for work in the morning. All this for the sum of 37euro's! We thought ourselves lucky, a poor french family arrived not longer after us and was put in the space between the electric gate and a store shed. At that price you can't help but admire the owner for cramming them in.

Anyone visiting Vizkaya on the Basque coast will probably want some seaside and to visit the two cities of Bilbao (in the West) and Gernika (to the East) - this site is within easy walking distance of a sandy beach and about half way between Bilboa and Gernika.

The camp can be confusing because half of it seems to be permanent installations, the rest for touring campers. The two parts have separate entrances (considerable distance apart) so confusion can arise if you go to the wrong entrance!

The camping area itself has two parts: a wooded, hilly area near the entrance and an open field. Plenty of room in the latter but there seemed to be a lot of noisy young campers in it. The wooded part is a shambles, it's just a matter of fitting your tent in any space that you can find .

There is a shop with pretty comprehensive stocks and a bar-restaurant with a very economical fixed price menu; the staff were always friendly and fairly helpful insofar as most didn't have any English.

Car essential to get to Gernika and other places, coasts, rivers nearby; getting to Bilbao is easier by going to the next village (which has more shops, restaurants &c than Gorliz), about 5 miles, and catching the metro train.

So a mixed bag but probably the only choice if you want to explore Vizkaya - which is well worth doing!
