Description

Great family run campground. There are plenty of shady camp spots, big enough for any size vehicle. Wifi only reaches the first few sites, but there is an indoor common area that you can use. It can get very loud on the weekend. 300 pesos pppn.

Nice campground. Paid 1900 pesos for 2 people (8000ea) and the van (300). Spots have trees in between them for privacy and the wind. Good sinks for washing dishes, reasonable banos with hot water (but only for five minutes). Reception even lent us an adaptor for our Chilean plugs when we asked.

We have stayed at this campground 3 times over 4 months while traveling around Patagonia and totally agree with all previous good reviews. Not sure what happened with the 2 recent bad reviews but they are totally out of character with what the owners and the place are trying hard to represent - which is a friendly, secure and family oriented environment.

They asked 600 for one night, 250pp and 100 for the car, the spots are well protected from the wind and have light, table and electricity.

camping à éviter absolument : le fils essaye de vous arnaquer sur la somme, est très désagréable et vous reproche tout ce qu'il peut (utilisation d'eau chaude, discussion autour des camping-car,.. ). Je ne recommande vraiment pas ! Idem pour l'ensemble des voyageurs présents ce jour : tout le monde en a pris pour son grade !

Camping muito bom e tranquilo pra se ficar em El Calafate, próximo ao centro da cidade e preço justo, pagamos 250 pesos por pessoa mais 100 pesos pelo carro. Banheiros limpos e funcionais, água quente, internet boa, mas somente próximo da recepção. As vagas para motorhomes e barracas são boas e contam com eletricidade, mesas e bancos e churrasqueira.

Very average camping site, partially run down. Had shoes stolen by a stray dog as fence is old and full of holes. Recently flooded. Owner tried to help after claiming that there was nothing he could do about the fence. Wifi was very slow that day. Shower was hot. And foyer was warm.

Cosy little place, WiFi is average, but fast. The Best hot showers in a campground with heated bathrooms, which is so nice when you are staying in the winter. Stayed 3 days, cost was 400 for 2 ppl and a Land Rover. Friendly and safe, left our stuff there while hiking all day.

We stayed here 3 nights, paid 100 pesos per person per night in mid-March. Very friendly owners. The common room is open 9am to 8pm, but they did let us stay later than that. Hot showers worked for us, and the shower/bathroom block was heated 24 hours! So nice to get dressed in the warm. We were able to wash and dry all of our laundry here, there is a clothes line in the first camp site. Wifi was not amazing, but we were able to talk to family and search whatever we wanted with ease. Only a few other campers at this time of year. Easy to walk to town. Great value, would recommend.

Report Check-In

Ok campsite. Wifi works in common area. Warm shower with radiator inside, so it’s cozy and warm to change clothes and shower. Ok clean toilets/ showers. 100 pesos per person for this period. We paid 200 pesos for 2 people with a van. Around 10 min from centre. Good option to stay at.

Now 150 per night but not sure if that is because there is a month long festival going on here. Stayed her 6 nights in total (with a glacier trip in the middle).weather has been mostly sunny and reasonably protected by the wind and easy walk into town. As aver, some noisy campers at night, but even so a difficult place to leave after many days on the road in the cold and wind.

Report Check-In

Nice camping. We were there during the festival, it was very busy. Not so clean, slow wifi and loud, but normal for such a full camping. We paid 150 pesos pp, but probably only more because of the festival. Would recommend anyways.

Report Check-In

Best option with found in town with level, tree shaded spots protected from the wind and with power outlets. 150 per person. It can get super crowded in high season. Restrooms are insanely uncomfortable. Good hot shower and average wifi speed by the reception desk only.

Nice camp ground. 130pp. WiFi near reception building and in comon room. Weak signal also reached the first few spots. Showers were clean and consistently hot. Dishwashing sinks. Easy walk to town. Recommended.

I'm back again after leaving my camper here for 2 months. All safe and sound. Paid the 50 pesos per night as agreed so 3000 pesos total. I'm here for 4 nights total. They are so charging me 100 per night, but she did mention that the prices went up, but didn't say to what. I guess that would be the 130 quoted below. It's so very reasonable I think, especially with the rate of inflation here. Gas prices went up by 10% in the same time, and it is now peak season. I have found the owners to be very kind, so maybe the person below got them in a bad day, or 'negotiated' too forcefully. There are two sides to a story.

We can't share the same enthusiasm as reviews down below. The common area was closed for camping guests because it is now used by the family (we were not lucky enough to see the friendly part of the family). The sites have electricity but no covered shelter meaning that you cannot cook when it is windy or raining (wich is most of the time). The shower (just one working out of three) is hot and the bathroom area is heated but was not cleaned at all while we were there. Wifi is only at the reception and is really slow. Yes it is cheaper than the other campings but at the end this was like an expensive wild camping with the bonus of shower.

Nice owner with a lot of animals (cats And dogs). Toilet doesnt flush. Showers are hot. You have your own camping space. 130 peso pp with a small tent.

Nice family run place, 130pp. Not much cheaper than the fancy and wonderfully maintained place in town (165pp there) but it was more for backpackers and we needed to save money. Electricity and lights at sites, hot showers. Both good options.

We spent New Year's Eve/day here and we loved it. All the positive reviews are totally right on. We had a hot shower in the clean bathrooms and then did some laundry. We used the wifi in the common room (which was ok in speed). We enjoyed celebrating New Years with new friends by a fire. There is no wind here, great spots with electricity at the sites and lots of friendly dogs and cats. We really enjoyed staying here.

Walking distance to city center. 200 Pesos for 2 plus Defender. Campground not well maintained, BBQs and wooden benches/tables unusable because close to falling into pieces. Slow Wifi near reception, but not working constantly. Bathrooms heated, in kind of poor condition but clean. One of three toilets only has a shower curtain instead of a door. Doors cannot be locked. Safe travels!

100 ARS per person. Very clean, heated bathrooms. 3 ladies loos & showers & 3 men's loos & showers. Only one shower for each effective! Very friendly lady owner and a young man who speaks excellent English. WiFi good within 50 m of reception building. Heated room where you can sit and use WiFi is large & with tables and chairs. Very quiet & peaceful this weekend. One other van here for one night. Apparently only busy in December & January due to cost of trips to the glacier. Lots of chickens, chicks, dogs & cats for company!

Amenities: 5 / cost: 3 / quality: 3. There are at least 3 campgrounds in the center and this one was the best deal. It’s an easy 10 minute walk to the center of town. As a nice bonus, the shower and bathroom block is heated. Decent wifi is only around the admin building. Camping El Ovejero down the street is AR$50 per person and their RV area is just a dirt parking lot further down the road. El Calafate – bush camping

AR$25 per person.
