Camping in Porto & Lisbon

Needing some help finding good camping sites in both Porto and Lisbon, Portugal.

We will be travelling in Porto around AUG 9, and staying for 4 nights.

We then travel down to Lisbon, arriving on AUG 13, and staying for 4 nights.

I am looking for camping sites (to pitch a tent) tha are close to the main cities - or close to the ocean.

I dont mind the crowds, but i am also very open to some quieter places too.

Any suggestions my friends?!?

As far as I know, the only Camping site within the city of Porto is Prelada, the area is a bit out of the way but the Lonely Planet seems to think it's OK:


You could also check out this site: www.orbitur.com

It's a company that operates a network of campsites throughtout the country. If you look at the map (mapa) you'll see that campsite number 10 is beside Madalena beach, which is about 10km from Porto, again, a bit off the beaten track.

Hope this helps a little
