Description

At the entrance of the national park you can camp in a grassy area with one palapa, picknick tables and hammocks. There are flush toilets both inside and outside of the visitor centre, the later open at night. There is an outside shower with a questionable curtain, we did not use it. Very quiet at night apart from the regular jungle sounds. Security guard present at night.
If you hike the Antelope Trail, leave very early because it is hot and heavy. Wonderful pool at the top, good for skinny dipping.
Entrance National Park BZ$ 10 per person, camping BZ$ 10 for 2 persons and a van.

Adding: there is wifi at the restaurant if you want to have a beverage. Meals were in USD aka pricey.

We spent the night at the camping, nice grass area with a big palapa and 2 tables. Everything was very clean around us. Park ranger very very nice. 10bz$ pp. Toilet with tp ok and shower outside with cold water, basic but ok. We were the only ones there. Felt very safe. Gate is closed at night. We could see and hear toucans, parrots, monkeys. And at night we had one of the most magnificent show of fireflies. Very quiet night of course.

Good camping, still BZD 15 pppn. You pay the entry to the national park once and can stay as long inside as you want.
They have a cold shower and a toilet building outside. Inside the little building you find two more toilets with sink.
Park rangers are super friendly and helpful.

Cool national park with lots of waterfalls to hike too. Stayed one night next to the palapa. Lots of bugs but a quite night!

Very recommend to visit. We camped two nights along the river and did the long hike. Israël, the camp chef says it can be hiked in 5 hours but we did it in 8 hours and skinny dipped in all waterfalls. We saw snakes and monkeys while hiking. It’s off the beaten track but well worth!!
Btw if you coming from the north over the hummingbird Highway and are a cyclists. There is a small short cut dirt road with some river wading and very nice views starting straight at the town of Alta Vista.

Loved camping here, falling asleep & waking to the sounds of nature. Park entry fee 10BZD/pp and 10BZD/pp per night to camp. Rangers allowed us to run our extension chord from their hut. Very friendly and helpful staff. Cold water shower and toilets. Great hiking trails to waterfalls. We had a great parking spot in the grass. That is until it poured. Rangers helped to free us from the soupy mess and find more solid ground. Rough dirt road to park but if you take your time any vehicle can make it

Stayed the night after hiking in the park. Went to pay for camping but place was closed so we just staying in the gravel parking lot. Still had access to bathrooms. Nice and quiet at night watching the fireflies in the jungle

$10BZ pp to enter the park, another $10BZ pp to camp. I see in previous reviews campers were only charged per vehicle so I'm not sure whats "right." We had park entrance for 2 days which was nice.

Great hiking and waterfalls, much needed nature time after Caye Caulker. We hiked antelope and did a 6 hour loop to see the another 4 falls. It was a good hike, beautiful and so worth it!

Report Check-In

After our hike in the NP we just stayed on the parking lot (gravel, level, lot of space) of the NP. Maybe because it is out of season, but nobody came to charge or ask, there was also no guard. Toilets at the visitor centre were open anyways and also the outside water tap (no drinking water).

Great place with several hikes to different waterfalls. Price is still 10 BLZ for each overnight. You pay entrance fee (10 BLZ) ppers only once.
Have seen a small crocodile after the end of the road.
People here drink the water from the creek.
Canyoning: On antelope trail , before the view point there is a little path on your left at the end you will see a metal cable which is use as anchorage for climbing down the fall. Take care to have the right gears and enough rope. The return is by the trail.

$10bzd pp to enter the park, another $10 to camp (for the vehicle). They told us our camping fee was good for the next days entry, so it turned out to be a pretty good deal.

Hiked to antelope the first afternoon, then on the other side of the road the next morning.

Hot and sweaty, but the jungle is amazing. It's nice to get out and do some hiking!

Camping is anywhere you'd like on the grass parking lot. Clean flush toilets all night and an outdoor shower if you want it. We elected to simply swim in the creek before moving on.

Great spot.

We didn't go further up the road, so don't know anything about the resort or it's camping. We stayed at the park visitors center. The rangers were very knowledgeable and also very proud of the park. You can tell they put a ton of work into the grounds and the trails.
