Description

Modern, pretty new gas station just out of town. Free & clean shower, modern bathrooms, bad open wifi, friendly staff. Ok for a night, but not many sleeping spots appropriate for overlanders, it’s more planned for trucks.

Good and large gas station!
Really hot free showers, and clean bathroons.
It’s a little far from the city, but it is In the way of Ushuaia - a perfect option to rest after a long day of aduanas coming from Rio Gallegos.
Reaaaally windy, so be prepared!

Super friendly people, showers still both hot and free, and a much nicer space than the other wild camps nearer town.

A lot of Overlanders here.. Good place. But today the showers for men are warm, not hot.. For women are ok. We put our tent near the trucks with no problem, but the floor are made by Ripio. Wifi was unavaiable today.

Muitos viajantes aqui. Bom lugar, mas hoje as duchas masculinas eram apenas mornas, longe de ser quentes. Femininas estavam ok. Colocamos nossa barraca de chão perto dos caminhões sem problemas, mas o piso é de pedregulho, como no ripio. Wifi indisponível hoje

We very lucky, it wasn‘t too windy, so we stayed behind the station where it was quiet (except for some occational trucks arriving) and not too well lit. Toilets are open 24/7 and the showers are great. Men’s shower seems to be open all day, women’s need a key (free of charge). The shop is open till 11pm. There is water at the petrolstation. Friendly staff.

Bad weather this afternoon. Guys at the pump said card would not work in this weather. Stupid me believed them and paid cash plus gave an honest tip.
In the shop all worked just fine, of course... :-(

Good stop for one night.
Parking lot behind the gas station but for small rigs it's probably better to park at the front of the restaurant, hiding behind the building because the wind is very very very strong. So you have the light but at least no wind. Pretty quiet at night. Good wifi.

Shower is working and very good and hot. Only one in the ladies toilets but on the truck side not the main one close to the restaurant. Cannot close is only a curtain. Free.

Showers still closed for repair. Potable water near truck parking.

This gas station is really modern however there are not good place to stop to spend a night (very visible) but it is better than the gas stations in the city.

No doubt .... the best place to stay in Rio Grande. I went to Casa Azul de Graciela, I went to Hostel Argentino, I went to other lodging .... not worth it, besides some are closed. This post has fast internet, bathrooms to top and the food made is fantastic. I ordered a snack on the plate ... Giant is very tasty. I RECOMMEND

Showers still free, hot and clean. The women bathroom has only one shower and no lock. As it was 9am no-one enter when I was inside.
The wifi worked well from 7pm to 9pm but after not so much. We were able plug our laptop and work inside the cafeteria without consuming. It close at 11 pm.
Not so busy during the night.

Showers were for free! They are next to the truck/bus pumps and drivers just walk in. Back door in the man's bathroom leeds to three showers. Very clean and hot.
Lady's bathroom was locked but we got the key without hesitation. One shower, you lock the bathroom and will have the entire facility for yourself.

Water tap with hose next to the machine to pump up a tyre. WiFi was free but useless, maybe it works at another time better.

Diesel was 17.73 so cheaper than in Porvenir or Russfin both at the Chilean side. Didn't sleep here, why would we if you can park close to the shore further south?
