General

  • In the Oyambre Nature Park surrounded by the Picos de Europa
  • A short walk to the beach and local fishing vilages
  • Pools, play area, restaurant, bar and terrace overlooking the beach

What a superb Spanish setting is this... Camping Rodero is in San Vicente de la Barquera, right in the Oyambre Nature Park and surrounded by the Picos de Europa mountain range. And it's a short stroll to the sea: beach fans and mountain fans, this is a site for you.

The beaches, coastline and small fishing villages of the region are within walking distance, but within 50 kilometres you'll be among mountains, woods, rivers and lakes; the Cabárceno National Park is about an hour away too.

Guests have access to toilets, showers with hot water, a washing-up area and token-operated washing machines. For your leisurely options, there's a seasonal outdoor pool for seasonal outdoor dips, a court for tennis and football (do try not to get these mixed up), and a playground to entertain the kids for a spell while you get on with important sunbathing business.

If all these leisurely pursuits have worked up an appetite, make your way to the restaurant and bar for eats and drinks, and more leisurely times on the terrace overlooking the beach.

The site also has a grocery shop.

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 15/06 and 15/09 (subject to weather conditions).

  • Liked: 

    spectacular scenery and great location on a site that had good access to the beach too. The facilities were always kept clean which is no easy task with so many campers. The showers were great and the site staff were very friendly.

    Disliked: 

    This is a very noisy site partly because the pitches are far too close together. There were also lots of tee-pees full of young people on the adjacent field, which is not a problem, but they were often noisy well into the evenings. However, most of the noise came from nearby campers on nearby plots who were laughing and talking loudly well past midnight. On one night it was 2am before the camp site became quiet enough to sleep!
    Also, there was no hot water in the sinks or washing up areas too so we had to do all our washing up in our caravan.

OK for water sports enthusiasts; not easy to pitch a caravan 16/08/2018

  • Electric optional grass tent, touring caravan or trailer tent pitch

  • Liked: 

    Friendly helpful welcome from a young lady who spoke good English. Lovely vies from the campsite to the sea. Good fun for children with well used pool.

    Disliked: 

    Really crammed in and our pitch involved reversing the unit and then moving caravan onto a downward slope. Daunting for first timers and impossible without a motor mover. The toilet/shower facilities are well beyond their sell by date, the shop appears only to cater for pool activities, and the bar/restaurant was disappointing. We did not try the food, partly because of a lack of menus and a harassed looking solo waiter but what we saw looked ok, if you like burgers and chips.

    The laid back atmosphere not bad for the money although on their website it clearly says the staff speak over 10 different languages including Russian polish Italian French and even Welsh but 98 % of the staff didn't speak a word of English only 1 or 2 could speak a few words the location is nice and it was quiet at night and early morning a nice family campsite

A good site for a visit to the N Spanish coast. 31/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Patricia M. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Flat pitch, good hot showers, friendly staff.
    Peaceful setting (apart from drunks one night), within walking distance of a beach and a short drive from Comillas, which is a pretty and interesting little town.

    Disliked: 

    Noisy drunks on night of bank holiday - though to be fair campsite tried very hard to rein them in.
    The food on offer at the snack bar really wasn't great.

Local attractions

Camping Rodero is in scenic and activity-filled San Vicente de la Barquera, an old fishing area where it's highly likely you'll want to snap shots of the beach and village edged by the snowy mountains of the Picos de Europa range. Have a wander over the Maza bridge and then stop off for some evening Barquera hotpot, the local stew of tuna and potatoes.

Also nearby, wander the beaches, cliffs and dunes of the Parque Natural Oyambre/ Oyambre Nature Park to see ancient Cantabrian landscapes, or head down to Cabárceno Natural Park in an old iron mine just outside Santander.

Hiking the Picos de Europa mountain range and visiting its caves are other topping options (you'll see plenty of critters around the park too, including brown bears). And if you've a cave connoisseur, the Cave of El Soplao is a bit of a subterranean must, as its 17 miles are considered unique in their world for the number and quality of their speleothems.
