Description needs updating:
This is not a Conaf campsite.
It is owned by the lodge and the price is 13000 pppn

There is a conaf worker situated here and this was clarified by him. No wild camping permitted anywhere on the beach

For cyclists looking to get on an impromptu ferry. When it is docked you can speak to a ferry worker and pay cash. You need to arrange travel with the bikes in someone’s car

Nice enough campsite with sheltered spaces to cook. Clean bathrooms (no hot water). When we arrived there were laminated signs saying 13,000 clp per person payable to Caleta Lodge but then we saw a CONAF park ranger removing these signs so we assumed it was now free to stay - or park rangers would collect a fee in the morning, as per the other Pumalin campsites. At 9:20pm a Caleta Lodge worker came and told us we needed to pay the 13,000 clp per person. All a bit strange - not a major issue but quite expensive for just pitching our own tent. Close to ferry but better value sites/cabañas closer to Chaiten.

Beautiful camping only accessible by foot (you can take a bike when walking though), because you have to pass a hanging bridge. It’s a huge garden-like area with bushes and trees that seperate different smaller grassy fields from each other. There’re little paths and bridges connecting them. Very nice! First time we missed camping in a tent, because we had to stay at the parking lot with our van ;) There was a CONAF ranger at the bridge around 4/5pm (just after the ferry arrived and a lot of backpackers entered the camping), so we were not allowed to use the camping facilities, but before and after that there was no one there. The kiosk is closed atm and you also cannot do the sendero around the aerodrome.

As all campsites in pumalin park it's a great campground with very well maintained facilities. Enjoyed our stay very much - few people in December. We payed no fees end of December but are considering donate something to the park administration (website) for such great service. The store "fundo del rio" opens in January and February. The vegetable and herb garden is well worth a visit.

The northernmost campsite of Parque Pumalín is only accessible on foot, since the crossing of a suspension bridge is necessary. A ranger usually collects the campsite fee in the morning during the high season, from about the middle of December to the end of February.

Lots of other people use this parking lot for overnight camping. There’s no sign prohibiting camping. Theres nice mirador 200meters more towards Chaiten but has no camping sign

Free camping in mid December. And such a wonderful place. Really well kept, quiet and lovely, with paths and small bridges. I had a lot of space to myself and everything was impeccably clean. Thank you, Pumalin Park!

Beautiful campsite. When it's raining expect the "common" area to be overtaken by folks afraid of a little healthy rain ; ) Props to the Tomkins' for Pumalin's success! I loved hiking and cycling through this park the past few days.

WARNING do not try to hitchhike from here... you will rarely get a ride. nice camping and trekking though

We spent the night here in our van after being told that we couldn't stay in the parking lot closer to where the ferry leaves. This parking was almost full, and there were clearly other people staying the night before the early ferry. Overall very quiet and free since we didn't goto the actual campground. There are toilets and water down the road 100m at the visitors center.
