This wonderful campsite is owned and run by a Argentinien / Dutch family. Monique speaks spanish, german, french, english and dutch. We planned to stay for a night or maybe two and endet up with more then a week. Camping Los Olivos is very big as it has 2 parts. One huge part for day guests with one huge and one smaller pool, toilets with shower and a bar with a big roof for rainy days. The other part is for camping and dorms. We got told there might be music on Fry or Sat. There really was on Sat, but we didn’t hear anything. If you have a weak sleep just drink enough wine with Monique snd Carlos :)
For us it was it the best Camping after 5 months in Brasil, Uruguay, Chile and Argentina. They were very open and willing to help us in any kind of situations and also organized for us trips to bodegas!!
The entrance on IOverlander is the campsite entrance. For the main entrance use -28.038765, -67.586932. Its just on the street after the turn you would go to the campsite entrance if you come from Tinogasta. If you are there before 12:00 check the campsite entrance and horn.

We can only recommend this place. An oasis in the desert, green, lots of birds and with all facilities and a nice swimming pool. The owners Carlos and Monique are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. They are just wonderful.

Next door is a club, so extremely loud music during the night (could not sleep, even with earplugs...), which is a shame because the campsite itself is great and the owners are very friendly. Perhaps better not to come here during the weekend.

Camping los Olivios is one of the better campsites in Argentina and worth staying for a few days. Carlos and Monique are very accommodating and there is plenty of shade, with water, power and lighting available. The internet has just been upgraded and is fast by Argentinian standards. There is a large pool which is great for swimming and cooling off, with some large bbq areas, and a really nice children’s area with miniature town square, pool and buildings.

Camping for two with a van was $400 pesos per night ($150pp and $100 vehicle) and the on site bar was reasonable for drinks. They also have waste separation for recycling and organics.

Don’t forget to say hello to Toby the sheepdog and Jamon the llama.

Cool oasis, clean refreshing pool, cleaner than most. Friendly hosts, Well designed bathrooms with dusty cobwebs and dirt around the edges of the floor, toilets have problems with flushing, slow wifi.

Nous arrivions du Chili par le mythique Paso San Francisco et nous vous conseillons une halte réparatrice dans le havre de paix du Camping "los Olivos", une oasis de verdure et de tranquillité.Vous y trouverez tout le confort et les services nécessaires. Vous y rencontrerez Monica et son mari Carlos qui feront tout pour vous rendre votre séjour agréable. Tous les deux ont crée ce très bel établissement comprenant des cabañas construites en adobe qui donnent du charme à ce lieu au milieu d'un parc arboré et ombragé avec deux piscines, bar et la possibilité de manger sur place sans sortir du camping. Alors si vous avez besoin de récupérer des effets de la haute altitude, voila une très bonne adresse avant de reprendre la route sur les chemins du Monde.

Report Check-In

As said before a great place, built with care. A place to relax. Very welcoming hosts ( btw. Monique speaks Dutch too and I was impressed with Carlos’s Dutch and English as well )and full of information about the area and scenic roads.
Quiet nights! Wonderful pool, clean and beautiful bathrooms.
Best time is during week but Monique warned us about their neighbours on the weekend. Music if that is what you call it all night long.
We would return again if in the area for sure on a week day!

Stayed here two nights and really enjoyed it. We felt very welcome and Monique and Carlos were super hosts. They let us use their WiFi in their garden - where they have a lama pet btw - super cool! We could chill in the pool, use the grill etc. You have the possibility to hand-wash your clothes, shower etc. An oasis in the dessert with trees, grass, cactuses and lots of shade. Definitely worth venturing of Ruta 40 to go here. Then do the drive up to Fiambala and from there to las papas and further to Antofagasta. It takes a long time and requires 4x4 - so plan to leave early. The drive is off the beaten track - we didn’t see any other cars the whole day we were driving and saw three totally different landscapes.

This is a really nice place, in fact a little paradies. The restrooms are made with love, everything is working, in difference to other campgrounds in Argentina. There is a pool, a bar and all the terrain is in wonderfull shape. You should not miss this spot.
Open from the beginning of November to the end of March.
Very nice owner, Monique and Carlos.
Monique also speaks english and german

Already closed for the season. The lady at the tourist information in Tinogasta says they're only open in summer (= end of Feb for her definition of summer).

What a great find for us. Monique and her husband Carlos have a very nice homely setup with great facilities in a relaxed environment. During the day there can be some music noise from the day camp but at least it is controlled and not intrusive. If you are looking for a nice break for three or four days to rest up from all that driving this is the place! Good showers and toilet facilities and average wifi.
