Date of Visit: August 2015 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Reptile Smile 7 reviews from this member

 It was, for us, a definite big fat 'ok'.

It was the only place we could fit in, and the owner worked hard at cramming us in. We were in a small field of semi-permanent 'house in the country' touring caravans, and though they seemed a bit suspicious of us, it was all fine.

There is a massive hill to get up, and our experience of the reception wifi was that it was an absolute disaster. The toilets were old and tired, but generally. The town itself is lovely, with a great harbour, great supermarket, and beautiful beach. If we were back in the area, it would never be my first choice - it was blooming expensive, never mind anything else - but it got us out of a pinch, and for that I was grateful.

 A very nice little campsite even though our rv is a little too big we got a grass pitch with electric. The owner lent me a extension to get hooked up and there is a very nice clean beach 5 minutes walk. We found this site by mistake and are very glad we did. We have a week until the ferry and will probably stay here

 Don’t be put off by the two “tent” classification the campsite has all facilities which are clean and well maintained.

The site is very convenient for visiting Bilbao; the bus stop for the metro near the entrance to the site and Javier the site owner is extremely helpful.

There's a beautiful beach in a short walking distance away.

WIFI near reception is excellent.

Reviewer: Diz-e-dee 6 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!
