Latest Check-Ins

We parked in the back of the rangers hut to get at least wind protection from one side... but it didn‘t help a lot.

Friendly rangers, very quiet, very of thé beaten track.

Free camping, no wind-stopper and ground a bit complicated to pitch the tent / parking for vans/ free (descent) WiFi / great point of departure for the Monte Leon (Crazy view+ Crazy wind) and the Rio Volcan/Lacteo.
There is sometimes guards, sometime not, you got the feeling to be alone everywhere, even in this “camping” :-)

We camped in the parking lot. Apart from that, there's not much that separates this from a wild camp. The toilet is filthy, bucket flush from a nearby puddle. No Wifi when we were there but hey, you're in the middle of nowhere.
Apart from that: beautiful sky at night and very quiet. Definitely ok to stay here if you're going on some hikes.

We camped there after our hike to San Lorenzo. 3 spots with partial wind shelter and a drop toilet. The wifi from the ranger station is slow and doesnt really make it to the tent sites. We only used it to check incoming email but downloading anything does not work. Also we dont know if we are allowed to use it.

In the morning 20 Guanacos were eating near our tent and we took some nice photos of that. Also a family of foxes lives there along with a baby horse. So downside to this is horse poo near the camping area and we also spotted a dead fox.

Interesting place and would need just a few improvements to make it a nice place.

El Rincon Park Ranger Office. Free camping. You can tent camp or park camp in front of the building. Not wind protected though. Free, open WiFi. Dirty flush toilet outside. Nice ranger. Good place to spend the night before hiking to the Refugio Kris & Doug Tompkins (San Lorenzo) along the Valle Lacteo. Trailhead to the Valle Lacteo hike is 6 km up the road.

I can’t believe this park doesn’t get more visitors! It’s free, the hikes are beautiful (highly recommend the one out to San Lorenzo), and you pretty much have the place to yourself. Sure it’s windy but we sleep in a ground tent and were able to find protected spots in a few of the camping areas. Don’t skip this place!

Vehicles now have got signed level spots outside the ranger’s station, not on the concrete spot any longer. Absolutely remote, quiet and dark. Practical for hiking, only 1.5 km from starting point of the trail to Monte León - a must with spectacular views from the top.

We was there and ranger said: no water, no bathrooms, no toilet. Nothing. So we just stay overnight on parking area. Wind was strong but not all night. It was calm place.

Great for solitude as remoteness makes the park quite difficult to reach. Had nightly rain and treacherous sticky mud track part of the way back.

Park is closed from May to October.

There is a concrete platform as a mounting pit for works under the car. Normally free WiFi - under repair at our visit. Also free WiFi at the ranger station at the park entry.

Extremely beautiful park with great walks and well worth the detour off Ruta 40. This is a convenient camp spot in the park but disappointingly right outside the ranger's office. In such a great park it's a shame that they won't permit overnight stops in other locations. The one other camp at Lago Burmeister is nicer for vehicles/trucks than this site. There is however, the benefit that the vehicle park spot is levelled concrete over a vehicle inspection pit, so if you need to do any underside work on your truck, here is a good place.

Great hike from campground to Cerro Leon. Very un touristy park, only about 10 people in entire park when we were here in peak season. We loved it here.

We had to stay at the rangerstation, other places were not allowed at this time (very windy) to camp. The Parc and camping are free. Lot of wind. Hike to the Cerro León, 4h up and down, very nice view of the Lago Belgrano.

For campers there is a large concrete platform, where you can park your vehicle leveled. Restrooms available.

We drove the 90 km long access road to the Nacional Park back to Ruta 40 in the rain. The track was completely soaked and muddy parts made maneuvering extremely difficult.
