Thanks for your e-mail. Most of the sites we visited were smallish pitches but there always seemed to be room for larger rigs, especially if you're planning to travel 'out of season'. Site owners seem to be pleased to have any business they can get, especially mid week when they're really quiet. Weekends are busier with Spanish residents visiting seasonal pitches but that's only two nights!.


You may find it a tight fit at Kiko park, and also at Castillo de banos at La Mamola. Camping Eden has lots of trees and you may struggle with manouvering. El Pino at Torrex Costa is very wooded with narrow roads within the site. However, saying all of that owners may let you have two pitches rather than loose the business!


Hope this helps. Have a good trip.
