Something not right?

Description

Wonderful spot by the lake. Quiet, a little wind protection because of dunes and bushes. There is an info center nearby and there were 3 other overlanders, so maybe there is even wifi but we don't know for sure coz we didn't Check. It's directly in the street though. on the road along the lakefront there are several spots to choose from. Seems to be a popular spot for overlanders we just accidentally drove by;) on the beach there are nasty little plants that poke/sting into your feet...just keep that in mind:)

Latest Check-Ins

Perfect beach camp. As soon as you passed the parking place opposite of the hotel, drive the sandy road to the beach. Some overlanders on the parking place when we were there, alone on the beach. On saturday night some music we could hear from a festival in el calafate.

Definitely the place to stay for a wild camp in El Calafate. We were one of multiple overlanders there. But it has great views right on Lago Argentina and was peaceful compared to the Laguna Nimez parking spot near the playground where we initially stopped but had many cars playing loud music pull in so we left to come here.

Noisy on Friday night / sat early morning, some young people came to bother us while we were sleeping. But no harm, just annoying! Maybe better spot during the week, still beautiful if you don’t mind street light

we've spent a very quiet friday night.
we've just heard a horse during the night !

Stayed 3 nights over the course of a week inbetween visiting the glacier and staying in town. Nice and quiet — sometimes a local would roll through to access the beach. Right next to the little reserve so full of birds. We followed to the road past the parking area to the dunes.

Not suitable for tents, no real protection from even the lightest breeze.

Good quite campingplace (many more) hidden from the the road. You have to follow the main road aside Lago Argentino. The sidewalk is on one place broken so that you can enter. Also good for tents. Wind protection from the dunes. Sometimes are lokals here.

Good place to spend a night. If you park in the area around the dunes you will have some wind protection. No facilities. Waking up with sounds of Birds. Two other overlanders.

Overlander hot spot. We were 5 vehicles spending the night here. A bit windy as it’s on the beach, but further than that perfect. Weak to no internet from the hotel - so don’t bother - but excellent 4G phone network for creating a fast hotspot. Apparently, the youth of El Calafate likes to go here as well as a hang-out spot with cars with broken mufflers -
FYI

Great camp relative to its proximity to town. Super windy for us but could be completely tranquil the next time. Worth a look.

No one was around when we were there. Quiet and safe. Relatively close to town as well. As others have mentioned the dunes offer a bit of wind protection.

Indeed we enjoyed this nice vieuw,quiet, beach camp....

Quiet place on the beach (not windy). Perfect to relax and spent the night in El Calafate.

Nice free spot close to el calafate
