VERY EXPENSIVE !
The most expensive camping we had in Argentina so far : 500$ pp + 1000$ per vehicule (children <10 don't pay).

Otherwise, very nice camping.
Shower hot and with nice debit.
Shower and toilets very clean (but toilets without toilet boards, as usual in AR).
Parillas, electricity.
Wifi of poor quality, only at the reception.
Swimming pool was closed in march.

Not far from pueblo center, reachable by foot.
Nice view on moutains and vineyards.

The camping is well structured. There is drinking water, hot shower, enough areas with trees, tables and barbecue grills. There is also a manual hoop for washing. Very quiet and quiet. Wi-Fi is a bit slow and picks up only at some campsite points. It is close to the square and the main road of the city. We paid $ 500 weights per person + $ 200 weights for the vehicle.

O camping é bem estruturado. Há água potável, chuveiro quente, bastante áreas com árvores, mesas e churrasqueiras. Também há um cocho manual para lavar roupa. Muito quieto e tranquilo. A Wi-Fi é um pouco lenta e pega apenas em alguns pontos do camping. Fica próximo a praça e na estrada principal de acesso da cidade. Pagamos $500 pesos por pessoa + $200 pesos pelo veículo.

If you have a big rig don't come here in the summer season, limited spots. We decided to street camp near the main plaza. Not as far to walk when you've done a few wine tastings and dinner. Lol.

Report Check-In

Sorry, but not impressed! Unfortunately checked in before realising the other 2 that are marked almost next door as closed are now open or would have gone elsewhere. Actually be better camping on the river 100 m on than here. Crowded, muddy (torrential rain so toilets look like a refuge camp with everyone drying out), blocked and dirty loos, used tampax on the soap tray in shower, too many barking stray dogs. In its favour, the water is piping hot. And we paid 550 for 2 with car and tent. Good heap tortillas at gate though!

Motorhome plus 2 people still ARS 350 (wanted to charge ARS 50 additional for our pickup truck, but relented when we said we were staying for 3 nights -- otherwise no discounts for long stays).

Showers ok, with warm water from 7AM until midnight, and good wifi near the showers (1.5MB/s down, unfortunately with frequent interruptions).

Not a lot of sites could accommodate our 7.2m-long and 3.2m-high motorhome, just 2 or 3 -- so keep this in mind if you're coming here with a big rig.
