Description

ADMIN NOTE: Users report no camping allowed here. Please respect the wishes of the locals.

To top it off the view is wonderful, looking out on the lake and towers in the distance. Not many other campers in this corner of the park. Fires were not allowed. One short uphill hiking trail takes you to a few viewpoints.
[Nominally free but owner deserves a decent tip in his tip jar for providing such great facilities.}

Definitely not allowed to camp here. Perhaps the point should better be removed in order to make the planing easier and faster?

Amazing view of the Torres in good weather, nice walk along the side of the lake. Definitely can’t stop here overnight.

Report Check-In

The told us its not anymore a campground, just a day use area.its a sign on the ground now, no camping and no motorhomes allowed.

Report Check-In

Very clear sign with no camping and no motorhomes allowed. Talked to the ranger further back and he said only allowed to park during the day.

Report Check-In

This place is permanently closed.

Report Check-In

Unfortunately closed for us - they did not let us stay. Road is currently also in bad shape and closed. We didn’t see any Overlanders there

Report Check-In

The rangers allowed us to stay and sleep in the car, he said we'll meet a guy at the campsite but nobody was there. The communal area was filled with food and beverages of ecocamp patagonia so we used our own stove and tools (inside). The next morning a guy of ecocamp patagonia arrives and he was totally normal with us having breakfast inside. Hot showers and great view!!

Report Check-In

Only motorhomes! Didn't allow us to stay here with our van.

Report Check-In

It all depends which guardaparque you meet:
We weren't allowed to camp here because we were too early (10 am) and the guy told us we could easily find a payed campground.
15 minutes later other overlanders did got permission! An hour later other overlanders were told no because they didn't have their own toilet. The fourth could stay if they had an official permission! Very strange situation, but we decided to stay anyway and nobody send us away, until the next morning around 11am, "because they expected other tourists". I think we just had bad luck with the grumpy guardaparque, but nevertheless it was a very nice stay with good hot showers!

Fantastic free camping. You may not camp here with (rooftop)tents though. Hot showers after owner turns on hot water. Toilets with paper! Nice sheltered shared cooking area with gas stove and large tables. In the morning there was hot water and coffee/tea provided. Owner was very friendly and generous. You can leave a tip :)

Report Check-In

Very nice place with awesom view over the lake. We have hot shower!
Have to have a ticket to NP. They are checking. No open fire, cooking only in the owner lounge. Very friendly people. Only one night.

Report Check-In

This is still on.
NO NEED TO PIRCHASE PARK TICKET. THIS IS INSIDE PARK BUT OUT OF THE PAYING ZONE.

Only for one night, very much on guards, not the most friendly especially if you try starting a fire....lol

beautiful walks around, you can even cycle mountain bike to the view point of the torres.

Report Check-In

Best campsite for overlanders in the park. The view is amazing! We were also allowed one night.
NO FIRE and no cooking outside!
We saw a family almost getting kicked out of the park.
There are nice trails along the lake and then to a mirador. Mountain bikes are allowed, lots of fun!

They told us we were the Last visitors. The camping closed just after our departure. They don't know if it would open anymore.

very nice spot. we asked if we can stay one more night and we could. we used only shower there and we tipped 6000.

Recommended! News: still only allowed for one night, but check-out time on the next day ist now 3 pm!

Report Check-In

A fantastic, quiet spot with amazing views of the Paine, and lots of guanaco. Best camping in the park, but only for one night.

Report Check-In

Best free (tip) campsite we have seen; clean, hot showers, full kitchen, flushing toilets and an amazing view. The guards even treated us to homemade ice cream at night!

Report Check-In

This is an incredible spot, and probably the best campsite in the park. You get a wonderful view of the Torres with Laguna Azul in the foreground, the showers are mostly warm and there are flush toilets. In addition, tea, coffee and cocoa is provided, there are very few people around...and it's free (although the tip jar definitely deserves to be filled)!! Plus, the owner invited us to a massive barbecue in the evening...!

Like others, we camped here one night. We were told by the CONAF guys that there is no check out time, so if you arrive early on the first day you can stay late on the second - essentially getting two full days here. Not sure why they have a 'one night only' policy, but it was strictly enforced. The camping area is privately administrated, but CONAF owns the land and gets the final say over its use (thus the 'no fires' policy). It's beautiful and every overlander should make the effort to spend a night here - the view is stunning. Hot showers, flush toilet, an area for washing clothes and dishes. We tipped 5000pesos

Report Check-In

Marvellous spot. We had the place all to ourselves after the day-trippers had left. The chap made us very welcome but stressed it can only be for 1 night. Free with box for tips.

Report Check-In

Very Nice and beautiful place with great views! Emergency camping only, but after 8pm you can camp here. The eco camp managers are very hospitable and we had a great time. The camp is free, but tips are very welcome!

Report Check-In

This campsite is amazing! However, when we asked about it at the entrance gate to the park 'Conaf' said it was only a picnic area but when we arrived at the campsite the man said we were welcome to camp for 1 night. There is a kitchen area, bathrooms and cold showers. The views of the towers over the lake are stunning. In our opinion the best camping around in Torres del Paine.

Report Check-In

Very, very beautiful free campsite! Highly recommended as you might not get a better view on the towers from the street. There is a nice kitchen and ok bathrooms. Showers were cold when we stayed here. Unfortunately it's only allowed to stay for one night.

Report Check-In

Beautiful spot with great views. Clean facilities and all for free, although you can leave a tip. Outside the park and they requested we only stay for one night.

Report Check-In

A beautiful spot in Lago Azul with great views into the park--for free! I think CONAF has taken over this campground because a park ranger said we could only stay here one day and everyone who works here has CONAF uniforms. Very windy in areas, but trees around for tent campers to hide behind. Cold showers and flush toilets. Free.

Report Check-In

Owner of this private site deserves a decent tip for providing this site nominally free of charge.
Fantastic views and a perfect spot for those who want to see the sights without paying the huge park entry fees
