Great campsite. We arrived in their last week of opening so had great choice of where to pitch. Still quite a lot of campers passing through.easy cycling into town but some on the road. Beautiful beaches and a fairly busy town for the end of season. Intermarche supermarket close by .
Very clean toilets and great shower with plenty of hot water. Unfortunately the bar closed on Sunday and the small shop was closed. What value though with electric and great wifi.

Worth visiting just for the showers. Best showers this side of the Atlantic! Great to wake up with the smell of pine trees.

A quiet peaceful site, with good clean toilet facilities. River is pretty but there is no room to walk alongside. An easy walk to a large supermarket.

Eenvoudige camping, maar met prima sanitair, dat goed wordt schoongehouden,en geen verdere voorzieningen. Onderhoud aan het terrein liet te wensen over. De camping baas is vriendelijk, maar wel streng over hoe je je caravan moet neerzetten. Omgeving is mooi en strand dichtbij, Ancora leuk plaatsje met een mooie boulevard. Intermarche op 800 m en vers brood te bestellen op de camping. Goeie treinverbinding naar Porto (1,5 uur). Gezien de prijs is deze camping zeker een aanrader.

It\'s all been said. Nice site, surroundings and staff. fairly casual camping in woods. 15/20 slow walk on flat to supermarket. Another 20 mins to town. Taxi\'s available. Train last town audible at times but not intrusive. A few Portuguese families at weekend,- well it is Portugal. less noise than in Spain. Return visit when in area. Replay nice and a well done to warden Rui.
Big note: Do not let sat have take you off the main road before reaching the traffic lights or you\'ll be in nightmare alley. From lights is cobbled for a bit but plenty wide. just follow the signs and enjoy it.

Camping très facile d\'accès et situé dans 1 endroit très calme avec plage et commerces à proximité. Nous sommes arrivés hier en milieu de journée et les douches n\'ont pas été nettoyées depuis plus de 24 heures. Je l\'ai signalé mais rien n\'a été fait. Il n\'y a aucune hygiène et c\'est vraiment très sale.

Mooie camping, rustig gelegen. Het sanitair werd de hele dag door schoongemaakt. Wij waren hier 5345B en in het hoogseizoen en mochten zelf een plaats uitzoeken. De plaatsen zijn niet afgebakend en zeker ruim te noemen. In het restaurant kun je goed eten en beslist niet duur. Brood kon iedere dag besteld worden en afgehaald in het restaurant. In de nabije omgeving zijn mooie uitstapjes te maken. Beslist een aanrader omdat de camping in vergelijking met andere campings in de omgeving niet duur is. Het personeel is zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam.

Toen we zagen dat deze camping maar € 10 per dag kost, hadden we vooraf onze bedenkingen over de kwaliteit. We hebben er ruim een week gestaan en het was heel goed. Ruime plaatsen, schoon sanitair met closetdeksels en WC-papier, restaurant, broodverzorging, gratis WIFi op de hele camping, rust en een mooi terrein. De eigenaar is vriendelijk en correct. Vanuit de camping zijn vele uitstapjes mogelijk,o.m. naar Porto.

A lovely campsite with a river alongside. When the gate is open there is access to the river but the approach is steep and dangerous. A short walk gives a much better approach and the river is good for swimming or paddling.
Toilet block very clean at all times.
Only caravans were allowed to park near the river (why?), other than that we could pitch where we wanted. A very peaceful site with friendly and efficient staff and at a great price. Wifi free but you have to search for a good connection..
