#3. Tablas de Daimiel National Park

Located in the City, near Daimiel itself, it has almost 200,000 annual visitors. In it is the wetland with the same name. It was declared a national park in 1973 and since then it has not stopped receiving visits. The last representation of what is known as river tables. This phenomenon occurs due to the overflow of a river in its middle parts due to the lack of slopes.

You have at your disposal guided tours of the park either on foot, by car, with children or in large groups. The El Mirador de Cabañeros campsite is ideal for visiting Las Tablas de Daimiel.

#4. Doñana national park

The west of Andalusia includes one of the most famous national parks in Spain: Doñana and its marshes. This area is a protected area of Spain and is located in the province of Huelva. It stretches over 100,000 hectares and is home to more than 300 different species of birds, as well as other fish and mammals.

Unfortunately, in June 2017 the park suffered a serious forest fire that destroyed more than 8,000 hectares burned. Do not forget if you are going to visit any natural park take care of the surroundings and take a series of precautions.

We find campsites such as Camping Doñana, Camping Village Doñarrayan Park and Camping la Aldea.

#5. Cabañeros National Park

We return to Castilla la Mancha to find the second national park in this autonomous community: the Cabañeros National Park. It is one of the least visited nationally with around 100,000 annual visitors. It is located in the mountains of Toledo, between the Rocigalg and El Chorrito mountains. The extension of the park exceeds 40,000 hectares.

An interesting option is that you park your caravan at the El Mirador de Cabañeros campsite and hire one of the 4 × 4 routes offered by the park organization.

#6. Garajonay National Park

The Garajonay National Park occupies the 10% of the island of La Gomera. It is smaller than the previous ones: almost 4,000 hectares of surface. The climate on the island is subtropical, but it is recommended not to forget warm clothes when visiting the park, since temperatures drop as you climb to the higher areas.

The closest campsite is Camping La Vista, although the park is in the center of the island you can sleep anywhere given the wide range available.
