Description

Asked someone if we could camp here and he said of course and directed us to park behind the facility. Super quiet and scenic location (sorry for the fog in the photos, but the view of town was dazzling last night). Toilets available. Lots of activity in the morning as many locals bring their fresh cow milk down to be made into cheese. Oh and the cheese here is amazing! We highly recommend the Emmenthal, but everything that we tasted was delicious! Free camping.

Recommend buying your cheese from the store in the main square instead of here, its close to the tourist information centre (they will show you the store that sells all local produce). The lady in the shop let us try so many cheeses whereas the lady at this place didn't want to let us try many so it was hard to decide which we would like to buy. They have a slightly larger selection here but the shop in town was a better experience.

Still free! Bathrooms open all night, no tp, no shower. There’s a public WiFi. It was superrrr windy at night when we were there. Also from here you can walk up to the mirador, that has nice views. Locals still walking by in the morning with llamas and donkeys 😍

This is a great, spacious area to park in. The show in the morning (even Sundays) is priceless. They start walking by at about 6am. Can’t easily walk to town from here, but we found parking at chocolate place and could explore from there.
Buy some cheese. It is hard, aged cheese in a variety of flavors. And the yogurt is delicious. The bathrooms are good and open all night. We asked about water but they said they didn’t have much to give. Great stop and town is worth exploring for the small stores selling locally made goods. (Maracuya liquor is WOW)

The place apparently hasn't changed :) The same amenities, same friendly people and the locals with donkeys and llamas. Salinas is a beautiful village worth visiting. It was very windy on our night though.

Great place to see local farmers with lamas, donkeys and horses arriving in the morning for their dairy run. Password for wifi is SalProd.2016

They make great cheese! Try the actual cheese they have and you will love it. We could camp just behind the factory and had access to WIFI. The password is still correct. We could use the restrooms at the entrance to the factory all night.

We really liked camping at this place and watching the locals bring their llamas, donkeys, horses, sheep carrying milk to sell to the dairy plant. Delicious fresh cheeses, milk and yogurt for sale. Camping is free and restrooms remain open at night. Wi-Fi password is still the same as provided below.
