The badroom is one of the best we had. They keep it very clean en the water is really hot. It's a bit of a long road on a gravel road but if you want to relax with a hot shower this is the place.

Very good equipped campground in the southern part of National Park Los Glaciares. State road in very bad shape, a pity; in the park a bit less worse. Very big terrain, long walking distance to only - superbly equipped - bath, showers and bathrooms depending on sites selected.

They are open again, opening days are 1th of November till 10th of April (depending on the weather). Very nice and helpful staff, nice spots for a campervan close to a lake.

Huge grassy campsite, every spot has a number assigned, parrillas, light and electricity in every place. Some of the spots have view to the lake and can be very private. Officially dogs are forbidden but they allowed us to stay with ours as the season was almost over and just a couple families were there. Huge clean bathrooms with hot showers, dedicated places to do laundry and wash dishes. Interior area to play pool or to hang around. If you have an Argentinian cellphone chip you can buy WiFi at the reception.

excellent overall. beautiful campground in a parkland setting. somewhat old-school bathrooms but spotless and lots of hot water. lovely staff. no Wi-Fi.

Very nice campground. Probably under new management: friendly staff, clean (heated) bathrooms, hot showers, warm water at sinks, even warm water at laundry sinks at the outside of the building, emptied garbage bins all over the terrain, even the ashes are removed from all BBQs every day. Cut grass at sites. Showers closed at night.

Large communal room with tables and seats, stove, and two huge indoor fire places with four large, height adjustable grates. Great as a shelter and for cooking when the weather is bad.

Latest pricing: 320 ARS per person per day (EUR 7,5). Electricity available between 19:00 and 23:00 (or later). Slow WiFi 70 pesos per 30 minutes (can be used in fractions). WiFi only during electricity hours. Claro GSM antenna across the road: bring a Claro prepaid SIM for your phone.

Ended up staying three nights. Hiked up the Cerro Cristal the second day for its great views.

Pulled in to stay and staff were very unfriendly - watching us search for reception. Feels like a holiday camp set-up and nobody seemed to be staying there. $240 pesos pppn. 10 pesos per 10 minutes of wi-fi. They sell wood [90 pesos]. The cost, staff indifference and lack of atmosphere sent us back to the free site back down the road.

Nice campsite but expensive. 240/adult 170/child. Lots of people during weekend for camping or picknick. More quiet during the week.

just stopping by for a night so it was kind of a bummer that the showers don't start until 9am. makes is hard to get out early in the morning, especially if the sun is already out at 5am. Showers run out of hot water a little after 9 because of the demand spike, and this was with the campground at probably less than 10% full.

37 large, well spaced camp sites and 8 cabanas. Each camp site has picnic table, fire pit, electric outlet, lamp. Some sites (e.g. 33 and 34) have great view of Lago Roca and mountains at cost of more wind exposure. Central toilets, showers, kitchen, and cooking building. Everything clean and well maintained. Professionally run by very friendly staff. 200 pesos per person. Walk to nearby Lago Roca and viewpoints. Near end of well marked 30 km dirt road, do not need 4wd.

Very nice and quiet location in the middle of nature with wonderful views. Large sites, you might have the feeling you are all alone. Wooden tables/benches, BBQs, most of the sites have light and a water tap. Very well maintained. Bathrooms extremely clean and well maintained, heated. Sinks for dishes or laundry with hot water at sanitary building. Wifi for 15 Pesos from 19.00-24.00. Very expensive: 200 Pesos per Person per night but worth it.

VERY big Campsites. Day visitors from Calafate can be annoying. You have to pay to get a WiFi card (Ar$15 for 1 hour) mine did not run out so surfed for hours.

A very nice grass campsite with plenty of room at each spot situated some 20kms down the RP15 from the turn to Perito Moreno Glacier....it is then a further 45kms to the glacier itself and as the road is quite rough in places it will take you 60 minutes from here to get to the glacier itself. The showers were hot and plenty of water, but in the men's showers one was not working, one had no shower head which left with only one in full working order, no problem for us as there were only two other campers when we were here on a Monday. Showers available from 9am to 10pm. Power iavailable when the generator is on from 7pm to midnight,if you are here at a quiet time you will have to go and ask them to turn on the generator. The restaurant offers a "meal of the day" for AP175 each and pizzas, plus they have an expensive shop for basics like milk. You can have internet by purchasing a card for AP15 for one hour, speed is quite slow. We felt that to be charged AP150 each for this camp was expensive....alternatively, 2kms before this campground you can free camp at Libre El Huala.

Awsome campground, one of the most beautiful we stayed in Argentina! Large sites with BBQ, table/bench combination and power/light ( 7pm - 12pm). Several water tabs in the area. Well kept, short grass and clean. Common area with kitchen and onsite restaurant. Super clean bathrooms with hot showers all day. Some sites have a beautiful view on the lake. Wifi for 15 pesos/hour extra ( 7pm - 12pm). Approx 65km to the glacier. Expensive but absolutely worth the money. We paid 120 pesos per person/night.
