Something not right?

Description

Cute little ranch right past the "orange bridge" if you're heading south, on the left, at the top of the hill (before you descend and on the right if you're heading north). Fransisco is the owner here, he was very helpful and shared lots of stories about the area, the glacier that's close by, etc. We stayed here with another couple, and while the camping is a bit wild, there is plenty of room for a dozen tents.
There are no covered areas or cabañas at the moment, but you can cook in his kitchen and he can heat water for a the shower.

We didnt really like this place. We came on a really rainy day but the refugio with bathroom was used by people/friends or rented out so we cannot use it. We payed the same price, could shower in the house but dont feel very welcome. We could put up the tent under the shed but trhere was a lot of sand and the puppys and dogs were making a lot of noise durinng the night and came in the rent. We felt like a dog in this shelter too… the next morning we were sneaking in the house to use the toilet but it didnt feel like a camping to us at all…. If you are here on a sunny day its nice but with rain and not able to use the shelter i should continue or wildcamp……

Great spot, now 7,000 pp to camp. There’s now a cabin with a kitchen, dining room and hot showers, and a room to sleep in if you want (12,000pp). Camping area not flat but beautiful views. No electricity in the cabin area but you can plug a battery pack in at the owner's house if you need to. We even got a little 4G with Movistar.

There is a Refugio (like a house) where you can cook and sit. There are also the bathrooms and one double room. the prices are 7000 CLP/person for the camping, 12000 CLP/person if you sleep inside the Refugio (there are mattresses) and 14000 CLP/person in the double room.

Cycling out of Cerro Castillo I felt like an early stop and found this spot. Stayed in the refugio and was permitted to bring my bike inside. The hot water was tricky to work (scalding or freezing were the only options) but sufficient for a rinse. Gas kitchen in the refugio that you can use, pretty well equipped. I was able to charge my electronics in the owner’s home.

Excelente servicio. Los dueños son un amor. Nos permitieron quedarnos en un refugio considerando que no había nadie esa noche en el sector y se venia la lluvia. Nos bañamos con agua caliente y como ellos estaban en un asado, nos convidaron de comer carne y pancito amasado. Nos cobraron solo el valor del camping a 6000 pp. Super recomendados.

Es un buen camping ubicado en un lugar estratégico. Si bien aparece como el camping de Francisco, su nombre es Camping Río Cajón. Sus dueños Sandra y Félix con la ayuda de Francisco son muy atentos y amable. 5000 p/p.Y me invitaron pan con mermelada y té.
