When you travel around Portugal in a motorhome, you have far more freedom to explore. It’s time to find the best campsites to compliment your journey around the gorgeous country. Here are the ones to add to your list.

1. O Tamanco

This is one of the perfect spots for families. There’s space for tents, motorhomes, and more. O Tamanco is surrounded by glacial lakes, sandy beaches, traditional villages, and much more. There is still a rustic charm from this modern campsite, welding two worlds together with ease. If you’re more of a “glamper,” that option is certainly there but you can also chose to set up a tent in the area.

You want to be here when you need to explore the historic sights of the Abbey of Santa Monica and the Costa da Prata. Whether you visit in the summer or winter there is something for you and the whole family to explore and do in the area.

You’ll find some chickens in the local area. If you are going with pets, make sure they’re friendly to chickens or that you keep them on a leash to protect the local animals.

2. Lima Escape

Take a trip to the Peneda-Geres National Park with your motorhome and stop off at Lima Escape. There are 70,000 hectares available to you at this Portugal campsite, close to colossal peaks for hiking, beautiful forests for exploration, and deep river valleys for peace.

Despite being a large site, there is an intimate appeal. While it’s good for families, this is also perfect for couples looking to get on a romantic getaway. The River Lima winds its way around and through the campsite, so you’ll hear the peaceful water throughout the night.

Looking for something fun to do? Lima Escape is perfect for ramblers, hikers, mountain bikers, and much more. Remember you’re right on the major National Park of the country! Bird watchers will also get the chance to see more than 140 bird species in the area.

3. Termas da Azenha

Termas da Azenha mixes Atlantic and Mediterranean waters. It’s a place of deep Greek mythology that you will see throughout the campsite. While you can stop your motorhome here and stay, you can also enjoy a beautiful hotel room at a low cost.

The air is unpolluted, as this is miles away from a local town. You get the beauty of nature on your doorstep.

For those who want to escape for a break, there is a spa treatment room and bar open throughout the year. The mosaic tiles bring nature into rooms, making you feel like you’re underwater. Depending when you visit, you may also see craft and other exhibitions and events going on.

4. Camping Rosario

When you want a campsite that is affordable and tranquil, Camping Rosario is the place you want to add to your list. There are homecooked meals available throughout the week and breakfasts that will make you feel like you’re at home.

It’s a family run centre, putting the focus on campers. This is place where you privacy is completely respected, but you don’t feel confined anywhere or claustrophobic. You’ll be close enough to all the best attractions in the local area, whether you want something historic or something exhilarating.
