Ignore previous entries saying it is closed. Those who marked it as such were heading to Argentina and the facility for exiting Chile is indeed closed now, you need to travel to the other side of the pass to Argentina for this.

What’s open is the facility for exiting Argentina and entering Chile.

Border crossing facilities for Argentina to Chile only (integrated, formalities for both exiting Argentina and entering Chile in one place).

Do not stop here if you are going to Argentina. The facilities for Chile to Argentina are on the Argentina side, after the pass and the tunnel.

Near the gasoline pumps close to the palm trees there is a water tap with city water. Be fair, get fuel, ask the attendant if you can get some water.

Very bad welcome. We didn't have the tickets and the person tells us that we can book on the internet but that it doesn't work, but we have the network, so I ask her for the booking site that they don't want to give me. Strange but I insist. She gives me an wrong name but I find it on Google and she laughs at me because I ask her the price, she tells me to manage on the internet. I don't understand his attitude, this my Spanish is not very good but I make the effort to try. In the end a second guard arrives and they laugh at me together. I don't know why. I show them that Internal works but they support me together that it doesn't work. In the end, after 45 minutes of difficulty communicating I see the people who were in front of us. It shouldn't be worth it if the Tour is over in 45 minutes. So we decide to leave.

As described before, this is a big parking lot with a dump station by the side with non portable rinsing water. It is clean and close to 70.

2wd or 4wd, but you do have to come up a steep embankment to reach the site.

after passing hone quarry campground, after the bridge it's about a 500 yards on on the left. if you go up the hill to the retaining lake you went too far.

you could fit probably 3 or 4 rigs in here. good tree cover, and sounds of the stream as you sleep. to the rear of the sight is a small trail that will bring you to the stocked stream.

Acampamos atrás da Hosteria Municipal, pagamos 1000 pesos por dia para o casal e mais 300 pesos para tomar banho. Internet rápida se usada no saguão, mas da barraca pegava também. Estávamos de carro, com barraca de teto. @biguaoverlander

Has a water bottle refill station and clean restrooms. I filled up a 6g jug here on a Saturday early afternoon and no one seemed bothered by it. Also hung with the dogs and did a workout before heading out. Safe place to refill if car camping.

Basalt "cave", hideout of the Pincheira brothers, a royalist outlaw gang.
In my opinion not worth the entrance fee.

Road in was recently graded and easily traveled in 2WD while dry. This spot is located right at the rims edge. Beautiful vistas and tall pines. The last 50 yards or so do get narrow, anything wider than a Class B will struggle. Plenty of flat areas that could even accommodate larger groups. There is intermittent traffic but otherwise the only sounds are birds and the breeze blowing through the pines. Several fire rings exist between this location and FR218.

1-2 bars of Verizon.

Site has no prior garbage that requires being pack out which is a pleasant surprise.

Cold spring water faucets. Quite popular with locals. Etiquette seems to be to wait in line in your vehicle until you can pull up to the springs

We were so surprised that this beautiful Hacienda (ranch) was not listed in iOverlander yet. This place is so beautifully build and mainainted, the view over the Cotopaxi is fantastic and they have a truly fantastic restaurant (with 24-hours slow-cooked ribs!). They have won many prices with their cows, the offer horse riding tours and there are a lot of other animals.

We were traveling with our Overlander vehicle as a group of 4 for a week, so we booked a room and for an additional 10 USD we were able to camp in our car. They mentioned that they are definitely open for more overlanders to visit, since it of course also generation different revenue for dining etc. The parking areas do have a few horizontal areas, although that might look different at first.

After 4,5 months of travel this, this places was one of our top-5 camping and dining locations.
