Description

Big car park, quiet and a good spot to break up a long drive. No facilities (except toilets, open all night). Free
there are power sockets (energy) beside (ask for).

From checkin 03/2017
Very nice place. Password Wi-Fi changes, ask inside. The suggestion is to park in the area behind the cafeteria where you can pick up Wi-Fi signal inside the MH. Despite the noise from the generator of the station. Which in our case was no problem. Water of very easy access. There are some power points around the diner building where some trucks were using. Spot with several overnight overlanders. We even noticed some tents farther apart.

08/01/19: wanted to fill Gas here. Only accept Maestro card or cash. No Visa, no Mastercard.

07/08/19 : ok Mastercard.

nice place to pintch the tent, there is space (we have a big tent with 2 motorcycles) . and food and wifi (not working very well when we were here). restrooms are ok.

Report Check-In

Confirmed working, fast WiFi inside convenience store/restaurant (great pizza, by the way), and also in the area outside immediately behind. It's not the open WiFi: the working WiFi is called "ACA" and it's closed, go inside and ask for the password. Also, great fuel prices for the middle of nowhere: cheaper than what I paid at Caleta Olivia.

Better place than many official campsites. Very clean toilet and shower. Quiet and save. Behind the building you can‘t hear the highway. There are some grassy places as well.

Good spot for overnight. Lot of travellers cars - meeting point on RN 3.
Fresh water outside, you can take how much you want. Clean toilets with toilet paper!

Local muito agradável. Senha Wi-Fi a mesma ([Password removed by Moderator.]). A sugestão é estacionar na área atras da lanchonete, onde é possível captar sinal de Wi-Fi dentro do MH. Apesar do ruído do gerador do posto. Que no nosso caso não foi problema. Água de muito fácil acesso. Existe alguns pontos de energia ao redor do prédio da lanchonete onde alguns trailers estavam utilizando. Local com vários overlanders pernoitando. Observamos inclusive algumas barracas mais afastadas.

This is an ACA (although a service station not a campsite) however it looks like a good alternative to wild camping in this difficult area. Lots of space with many trees, it also looks possible to park behind the buildings for more cover from road noise.
