Established picnic and barbecue area with lots of space for camping, tables, BBQ, toilets. There is a road around the south side of the reservoir that has access to the shore. As it was quite rainy and muddy we opted to stay in the trees a little further up.


Why? By checking in after you've visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.

Latest Check-Ins

What the fucking hell. There has been a party ACROSS THE LAKE for over 30 hours now. It's still going but I am leaving. Seriously, this is by far the loudest music I have ever heard. Even this far, I can still feel the vibrations of the music down in my stomach. Earplugs do nothing. Everyone there must be deaf and on coke. The place itself isn't bad. Clean toilets, few families having a barbecue, clean toilets. If it wasn't of the neighbor trying to break the world record of the loudest raggaeton, this would be a great place.

Oh and to make things worst, their DJ, who is supposedly the "mas top del Paraguay", is terrible : The playlist loops every 45 minutes or so! Like come on, if you are to have a 30+ hour party, at least make sure people wont hear the same thing all freaking night! I guess the bar for DJing in Paraguay must be very low!

Edit : I wanted to sleep here after visiting Iguazu, thinking the party would be over. Nope. 3 days later, it is still going, just as loud as ever. When do Argentinians sleep?! They are houses around! Poor people... Guess it's back to the YPF for tonight!

The place is ok. You can park close to the entrance or further down by the lake (with a 4WD as it's slippery).
Quiet during the day but can get pretty loud as kids come driving around the lake with super loud music all night.
Good camping spot if you head early to the waterfalls in the morning.

Perfecto lugar para bañarse y dormir. Dormimos 2 noches, la primera el domingo con lo que durante el dia aun había bastante gente pero por la noche tranquilidad absoluta. Hay un guarda viviendo en una cabañita. Baños y duchas frías abiertos 24h. Muy cerca de Iguazú para visitar las cascadas. Gratis. Hablamos varias veces con el guarda y nunca pidió dinero. Hay parrillas con lo que el fin de semana se llena mucho.

HERMOSOS LUGAR. El agua del río con la temperatura perfecta, los baños super limpios, tiene parrilla, mesas y muchos muchos árboles para estar en la sombra. A menos de un kilómetro hay un pequeño poblado donde hay una despensa para comprar cosas muy básicas. Tanto en carpa, como en motorhome es el lugar ideal y gratis. Mejor imposible.

Lovely peaceful spot for lunch and a swim, we didn’t stay the night. Grills, picnic tables etc. If you go down to the lake wear shoes- lots of broken glass!

As described. It had been wet and the red earth of death had me sliding sideways like I was on ice. Had to switch to 4L but nothing is really that steep. I came back to the first bunch of trees on the left as you drive in. Good for a night out two I guess.

Hermoso lugar para parar y quedarse unas noches. Podes bañarte en el lago, el agua es templada/tibia! Es agua estancada asi segun nos dijeron tiene menos oxigeno por ende te hundís mas. Tiene partes muy profundas. El lugar cuenta con arboles, mesas, parrillas, baño, ducha fria y enchufes en un poste de luz. Si van y ven a una perrita color blanca con ojos verdes delen de comer y unos mimos. Nosotros le dimos de comer y unas inyecciones para la sarna 🧡

Very nice camping . Electricity passing the restrooms inside the woods . BBQ , showers (cold), very nice lake to swim and a cute dog asking for food🧡 she needs overlander’s love.
Although a guy at the entrance ask for collaboration .
The entrance road seems muddy but it is not. It is safe for any vehicle.

Nice place and free. we spend one night, very clam.

very cool place, free, bathroom and shower was closed at night

This place is top. Its really a picnic spot with tables, barbecues, showers and toilets. Its may not be evident to find a good flat spot close to tables. plenty ofbshade under giant pines. You can swim or fish in reservoir- free camping. Bathrooms are only open weekend.

They have, electricity, a shower and toilets now (if the nice host shows up and open them). All free! Nice place

A really nice spot. Lots of picnic benches and grills up in the trees and they are currently building a toilet block. Not sure when it will be finished but they're onto tiling now.

The road looked freshly graded. No ruts, tracks or mud. Many new picknick places.

We stayed there 3 nights with our van and tent. Very simple to access, Nice place, great sunset and a lot of wood to burn on the BBQ. Very Nice.

As you drive west on RN12 away from Iguazu, the side road turns off just after passing the Camp Uruguay Park on the same side of the road. Approximately 1 km in there is another track off to the left that goes down to the waters edge and is used at weekends it seems for boat launching on to the reservoir. There are two places in the trees on the right to camp, one with a temporary fire pit. As usual there is a fair amount of rubbish around but nowhere near as bad as some places we have stayed. If the entrance road is wet we recommend not to go in as there were clear signs that it quickly gets rutted and muddy after rain. Free.....with no facilities although a quick swim in the reservoir is very refreshing.

There is a road around the south side of the reservoir that has access to the shore. As it was quite rainy and the shore quite muddy we opted to stay in the trees a little further up.
