Amenities: elec but the bathrooms were locked / price: free / quality: 1. This town is out of the way no matter where you‘re headed, but the most reliable source of gas (YPF station) in the area. When Tres Lagos and Bajo Caracoles actually have fuel, it is expensive.. There is a La Anonima in town. This small campground looks abandoned but there is good wind cover. Like most of RN40 here it’s a rough 60km into town but is being paved. I believe RN40 will be rerouted through town when it’s finished.. Routing: Many people suggested we cross over into Chile via Chile Chico on Lago Buenos Aires/General Carrera. The road to Cerro Castillo will rattle you to death but has fine views. We didn’t head south once we hit route 7 which goes through Cochrane to Villa O’Higgins. If we had more time we would have gone down to Cochrane which we hear is beautiful.
