Campsite Despeñaperros is a campsite with 112 touring pitches and 30 year round pitches. During low season, between 01-01-16 - 19-03-16, 27-03-16 - 16-06-16, 15-09-16 - 23-12-16, 25-12-16 - 30-12-16, 01-01-17 - 08-04-17, 17-04-17 - 16-06-17 and 15-09-17 - 23-12-17, the nightly rate is €17,- at one of the 112 touring pitches at Campsite Despeñaperros in Santa Elena (Jaén).

Quiet wooded site conveniently located a short distance from the N IV/E5. Suitable for staying for some time to relax. Level grounds with sufficiently shaded pitches. The 'Batalla de Las Navas de Tolosa' museum in Sta Elena is most interesting. It shows a scene from a historical battle between the Christians and the Moors in 1212.

Arrived to be told no ACSI due to no computer but then printed us a receipt from the computer. No facilities as end of season. Toilets basic and showers unhygenic. OK for an overnight stop.

Easy enough to find. Level pitches under pine trees. Facilities were well maintained and there was plenty of hot water. Well stocked shop and a beautiful swimming pool surrounded by grass - but one needed to supply ones own chair! Good base, I would guess, for walkers of whom we saw plenty. Pleasant bar and restaurant.

We enjoyed this site. Very peaceful and very conveinent. On our way south in early June we were allocated a pitch but it suited us so that was fine on our return at end of June we were told to choose our own - out of discount season the reason perhaps?
Good price with discount but felt a bit steep with no pool or restaurant open.
We had an excellent meal at the hotel near the entrance can thoroughly recommend it.

Ce camping pourrait être très agréable : les emplacement, les sanitaires, les équipements mais il est en décrépitude. Les sanitaires sont propres mais les bacs à vaisselle et à linge plus que vétustes. De plus, on entend l\'autoroute et les camions toute la nuit. Il est pourtant bien placé pour visiter la région.

Malgré que ce camping soit dans un cadre exceptionnel, il ne vaut pas son prix. Sanitaires propres mais bacs à vaisselle et linge plus que vétustes. Camping très mal entretenu . Piscine fermée . Terrain de sport en décrépitude. C le seul camping dans la région donc il faut s\'en accomoder

Usefully placed just off the autoroute however the \"welcome\" was nonexistent. Trying to pay by card was declined. The facilities were barely ok - dated and due for a real clean. The surroundings are very nice indeed and there was no real noise from the autoroute. We\'d use it again as an overnighter but only because there is nothing else in the area.

Bij aankomst moeilijk communicerende man, geeft geen enkele aanwijzing, wil kenteken caravan hebben. Aangewezen plaats kan niet vanwege boom in het midden. Zelf plaats uitgezocht, dan weer geen electriciteit. Terug naar kantoor, man afwezig, zit in bar, zet electra aan .
Sanitair van prehistorische kwaliteit, stinkt. Afwas plaats nog nooit zo slecht gezien. Je moet op je plaats water tappen vanuit liggende houding. Chemisch toilet geweldig onhandig en smerig. Alleen wifi goed en gratis. Afrader, kom hier nooit meer terug.

It is a one night stop place really. The shanty town of static installations seems to fund the local team who were seen baiting traps for wildlife on site at 2330 on the same day that the ACSI inspectors were encamped opposite me!!!
The toilets are superficially clean but feaces in one corner of a shower certainly put me off the place. I will never return. Yuk!

Medio juni camping bezocht om o.a. Ubeda en Baeza te bezichtigen.Nauwelijks gasten op de camping,zwembad leeg,restaurant en bar dicht. Geheel maakt een sombere indruk. Natuurpark is fraai, La Carolina enige stadje waar e.e.a. te doen is.

Accès au camping un peu délicat pour grande caravane. Emplacements non délimités par des haies ou autres. Village à proximité. Agréable pour une pause en pleine forêt dans un cadre splendide.
