2 cyclists. arrived mid afternoon. paid 5 sols each. Door interesting and amazing hike beyond on the cliffs. We asked and were given permission to camp. At night a group came to have a religious ceremony and we were invited to join which we did. very moving and interesting. The sun rises here so wonderful morning. saw no one else in the night quiet but for the odd bird call. wonderful place to camp

Very convenient. We parked on the shoulder of the road, as there was plenty of space (28' RV towing a small Jeep). Up to date machines. $5.25, $6.50, or $8.00 a wash, depending on the size of load. .25 to dry for 5 or 6 minutes.

They refill RV/regular propane tanks. Pull in through the gate and the refill station is on the right past the dock. Wouldn't want to pull a big rig through there. Class B or C should be fine. Paid $3.50/gallon.

Very nice, safe and quiet place. The tenants Marc and his wife are very friendly and helpful. The site is a jewel in an Olive Garden close to the highway exit near Marrakech but still very quiet. Since the tenants are not always there, it seems advisable to call in advance (See google maps for the number) .
The night with a camper is 100 MAD for 1-2 people.

This boondocking camp is situated on Forest Route 57F, directly off Handcock Rd. It's a nice site if you arrive late at night when the other spaces are crowded because it's fairly close to the road. Road noise was audible during the day, but it was not noticeable at night. If you're only here for the night, this is a nice spot. The roads were a little muddy yesterday owing to the rain, so that's why I chose this location. Until the dirt roads dried out, I didn't want to take the chance of getting trapped.

Bike and E-bike rental company. They also rent out camping equipment (one of the only ones we could find in the area) and run the house as an Airbnb with a couple of rooms (very comfy, laundry service available at extra cost). The guy who owns it is a Swiss guy called Moritz and is very friendly and helpful (also runs a hostel in Santa Cruz). Recommend sending a message on WhatsApp (number on website) if you're interested as there isn't always someone at the house.

A great spot by Lake Avalon. Peaceful. Plenty of space for dispersed camping. Human trash present. Watch for nails and broken glass.

They didn't let me in with my motorhome. It's only for members. Very close to the motorway. But you can try your luck.

Super efficient.... super confusing.
This is my 85th country visited. I'd say one of the most efficient in the Americas and probably the most confusing. It's new so many of the staff don't understand the system properly yet.
great idea to have a One-stop-shop that depends on which direction you are headed. CHILE ----> Argentina Don't stop on the first airport looking building on the Chilean side. Keep driving for about half an hour 25km to the second airport looking setup. these are big places and can process serious through flow of people. Great idea.
Drive and and stop at window 1, then 2, then 3. What's so confusing about that? Well it's not once you find the right place to be in.
The big confusion is with TIPs. Unlike every other boarder you have to hand in your TIP to have it cancelled on the departing country side. Not with this system. You hand in your Chilean TIP on the Argentinian side (window 2).
But wait... There's more. Window 3. You don't need a TIP if you're in one of the neighboring countries with a TIP agreement. 99% of the motorcycles I saw passing through didn't need one. I did because my bikes from Colombia. Lucky I read the post of the guy that had to go to Mendoza to sort it out later. I had the same thing. I was told very strongly I didn't need one and told to scram. Only when I insisted to see the supervisor in the offices did this boss (super nice guy and speaks english) know I DID need one and 4 mins later it was in my hand.
I arrived on a Wednesday after Easter and got up at 6 to beat the Santiago crowd. Good move. I was the only one there. 20 mins later the place was swarming with people.
Check if you need a TIP BEFORE. No cell/data reception up there.

La route B55 se transforme en une piste en très mauvais état après la mine Escondida (en arrivant de la Main du Desert), alors qu'avant c'est de la belle route neuve (attention mise en place d'un péage en cours).
Des bosses et beaucoup de poussières. Ne passe probablement pas pour les véhicules non surélevés.

Very bad and dusty road cross the mines during 30kms at least.

seems to be BLM according to map. Spent night here as it's handy and accessible for big rig. Easy drive on into Bryce (20 min?). Didn't explore on up road. This little lot is sandy, but was firm at my visit. If you're also looking at FS117 camping area it did have a closed sign in the road when I passed by (3/2). Also FS has some restrictions over there you should look at.

Very trashed and graffiti everywhere. The the only thing that makes up for it is the surrounding water.

Large! Has RV spots and several for smaller van/ truck camper areas. This place has a subway and Popeyes, as well as a country pride restaurant (not sure on hours) I stopped in here for subway and to check fluids. Everyone was friendly. Larger than the lives across the street for sure!

The road to this is full of fly tipped rubbish and you pass broken houses and a rubbish dump. If you are brave enough to continue, you find a small oasis of river front. Easy to get to - just believe!! 3G signal is weak but there.

We are dry camping at San Pedro campground just a couple of miles north of Paulino's. Our refrigerator wasn't working on propane, which we needed since we were dry camping. Stopped by to see if he could help and he found and fixed the problem in less than 5 minutes. He knows his stuff, is super friendly and a real cut-up. Said he's been in business over 30 years. If you're in the area and need supplies or repairs, this is the place to go.

There was a rope blocking the entrance. We didn't check its origin and went to a better place ahead.
