- Peaceful rural retreat among mature woodland and bordered by a river
- A short drive from a reservoir with watersports and a beach
- Restaurant, tapas bar and communal stone barbecue
A peaceful and pleasantly landscaped site surrounded by woodland, filled with huge mature trees and bordered by the Douro river, family-friendly Camping Refugio de Pescadores is a 20-minute walk or a speedy cycle ride into the local town of Covaleda for shops, bars and restaurants.
The site is handily sandwiched between two beaut nature reserves: Black Lagoon Urbión and Cañón del Río Lobos Natural Park, both around 40 minutes’ drive away, and both throwing up a whole heap of active options for outdoorsy days spent off site. They’re both certainly a a walkers' and cyclists' paradise, and popular with guests of all ages for horse riding and mountain biking too.
The layout of the site – among a forest, next to a river and with level, well-manicured grassy land – lends itself to peaceful walks, foraging, flower picking and having a sit with your own meandering thoughts.
All that peace and quiet is likely to have you work up an appetite, so it’s a good job several foodie options are around for you on site; before your main meal, fill the hole with a quick and tasty tapa at the bar, and then either fire up the coals for your own al fresco feast on the big communal stone barbecue and banquet at the picnic tables, or head to the restaurant to chow down on cuisine prepared by someone else’s expert hand.
Accommodation here is well laid out among generally flat or otherwise very gently sloping grassy ground, all sufficiently shaded from the Spanish sun by large tree canopies. The team here at Refugio de Pescadores are consistently hailed as being out-of-their-way friendly and helpful, and the surroundings super swell.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

If you’re up for combining a gentle stroll around the immediate locale with a visit to place of local historical importance, then you can hike out to the Church of San Quirico and Santa Julita, only two kilometres from the site.
For water-based family fun, La Cuerda del Pozo Reservoir is a fast 14 kilometres from base and provides a good range of topping options that include sailing, rowing, pedalo rides, windsurfing and waterskiing, as well as beach-based activities such as sunbathing (but of course), sandcastle building and burying one’s family members up to their heads in sand.
The nature reserves of Black Lagoon Urbión and Cañón del Río Lobos Natural Park are both around 40 minutes’ drive away and provide more outdoorsy options for highly (highly) scenic hikes, mountain bike rides and horseback hacks.
If you’ve got a car, the wider locale is dotted with heaps of castles and fortifications dating as far back as the 10th century; take advantage with a road trip out to the Castillo de San Esteban de Gormaz, the Castillo de Berlanga de Duero and the Fortaleza de Gormaz (the largest fortified building of its kind in Europe, no less), all around an hour’s drive away.
