Something not right?


Big Parking behind the Excursion-Offices near the Lake.
There is a good Restaurant near, called *PLATOS PREPARADOS PIA*. (very good Salmon:-))

Latest Check-Ins

This Place is OK! Just to update. As the other coments say: police asked us to place the camper in that area. Is very recomendable and safe. We slept very Well and no one bother us. There were some friendly dogs and one outlander more. No services.

Nice place, seems to be the only possibility to park on the beach. It was relatively quiet during night, close to town center and to lake also. There was plenty of space in sunny days of march... more recommended than the other spots in town.

Good place to stay the night before or after the visit of the capillas de marmol. Water near the playground but not very clear.

Nice place to sleep between tours. Crowded in February, but still very quiet during the night. Also secure with PDI often showing up.
For showers, we advise the ones from the camping Fauna Patagonia close by (1000ppp, quite hot and clean).

Very windy but quiet. There is a tap of water between the playground for children and the cabans to book a tour.

good place to stay in town, but there are many many people. The Copec toilets (2) get very busy and they refuse to fill water.

Big open area, busy during the day but quiet in the evening as stated by others. View over the lake is great, but not as impressive as other parts of route 7. Hardly any cover.

As described, very quiet at night and no problems to stay here. Amazing sunrise and view over the beach.

slept here the night before doing the capilla tour. busy spot during the day but from around 8pm quiet.

We spent three nights here. The first night we had parked further to the right on the beach near some trees, but the Nevy Police asked us to move over on the big parking lot next to other overlanders. We were not allowed to park here. The big parking lot is just to the right of the small street, where you can buy tours to the Marmol caves. We took a 4 hour trip in kayaks, 35000 på. Loved it. Copec toilets 250 pesos. To the left of the small street, where you can buy tours, some other people had put up 2-3 tents. Not perfect, but ok. Nice lake view. Police are nice and petroling the area. A lot of tourists these days.

juste devant les cabanes d'excursions. Calme la nuit et protégé du vent. Pratique pour aller faire la sortie en mer le lendemain aux Capillas de mármol.
