Camping and place to leave van near Bilbao (start of Section 05 heading East)

I guess this is a pretty common question for English folk. I googled it and found these, but they both look more like swanky holiday parks rather than simple campsites:

Any recommendations for something a bit more down to earth? I want to leave the van there for a week or so as well.

Thank you Simon for all the work put in on the TET project. I'm looking forward to seeing Spain on a trail bike - its the first time for me.

That's pretty much par for the course in Spain when you are away from mountain regions suitable for hiking. There's a site on the actual TET - https://www.campingacedo.com/en/ - but taht's similar too. When you get further east and into the higher Pyrenean areas the situation changes.

There is a nice 'green' camp site fairly near the TET at Lumbier - https://www.campingiturbero.com/ - but meanwhile I don't know anywhere to park your van - you're right, the question does keep cropping up! - it might be that these very campings are the best choice.

Cheers

Simon
