Quiet and pleasant place to spend the night. On the edge of the lake with a beautiful view. There are no facilities close by. Claro's 4G internet works well. It is not protected from the wind.

Very quiet and beautiful view over calafate with an amazing sunrise. Didn't look like a lot of wind shelter but fortunately it wasn't windy at all.

Very nice place close to El Calafate. We stayed here with some other overlanders but you can still get your own privacy because of all the bushes. Really quiet at night.

Ótimo lugar! Lago por todos lados, vista de El Calafate iluminada de noite. Ficamos uns 3 dias aqui com outros 3 motorhomes. Sinal de Internet boa.

Quando venta muito pode ser ruim.

Good place to stay several days if you want.
Quiet at night, some local people during the day (some were very friendly).
Lake is very close and you can have bath.
There was no wind at all for us.

Please bring your papers and garbage with you ! Already too much poop among bushes.

On the lakeshore a few km outside El Calafate. Quiet.

Camped next to the abandoned (?) paint ball ground, parked just behind the fence on the beach. This was the only place in the whole of El Calafate we could find that had some decent wind protection for a rooftop tent. Take care driving on the sand further down; needed 4low to get out.

Great quiet spot right on the lake. Had an amazing night with a warming little bonfire. cute spot tucked away between bushes (good for wind protection). Did a garbage clean-up before leaving as it was a bit dirty. Definitely recommend this place!!

Beautiful spot next the lake with lots of birds around. Lots of bush cover (mostly low/medium bushes) and places to choose to camp in tent or Campervan. A little windy. Arrived at 5pm and were the only people here, did not see or hear anyone else during the evening/night.

Report Check-In

Arrived here at about 5pm, no other campers here all night and didn’t see anyone else during our stay. Lots of spots to choose from. Beautiful spot with views over the lake, wildlife and lots of bush cover and not too windy for us.

Lovely to stay overnight or to spend the day - in winter lake frozen and you can skate! Hire skates for 60 ARP for 3 hours - on the other side of the lake where the white big house is...

For a rooftop tent, not enough protected against the wind. Take care, there is some sandy place. We were stuck at 1am... it seems that we were not the first one. ^^ but if you follow the road, there is no problem to go there.

good place to stay if you want it quiet in the night, nice views and to be nearby the City. During the day (weekend) many locals spend time here with their family having asado and a nice day on the beach. the lake is very cold but with a beautiful color ;)
