Something not right?

Description

grassy spot for an overnight stay, with a little bit wind protection, before/after the glacier visit.

The Glacier NP is magnificent. (In my mind it's not necessary to do a boat trip.)
There are so many good viewpoints very close to the glacier, so visit the viewpoints first. The boats can't even come so close to the glacier because it is too dangerous. We saw and photographed some falling iceblocks during our 5 hr. stay, we went in at 8.30 am on a sunny day. :-)) The Park is open from 8.00 till 19.00 hr. Price p/p per day 12000 pesos, (Jan 2024) no animals allowed. Try to be there early, the first tourist bus arrive at 10:30, before that time, you will be alone!

Beautiful calm spot. No wind at all. Only one more campervan stayed there and we saw a fox near the car in the evening. Perfect for visiting glacier next morning.

great spot, no facilities, we were there with 3 other campers. not much shelter for the wind.

Indeed a beautiful spot to stay for the night. We liked it so much, we came back after visiting the park. We had a clear day with no wind, which made this spot the best we've camped at in a long time: very quiet and no trash at all, hopefully it can stay that way! (please bury or take your toilet paper as well- leave no trace!)

Good one with a fire pit. Be carefull if there is wind. No wind protection but it was not windy when we were there. we enjoyed the silence!

Nice and quiet place indeed. To find the access, drive to the left at the crossing if you come from El Calafate. If you come from the glacier, drive to the right, not to Calafate. Shortly after the crossing you will see the tracks of the other overlanders on the left side. Follow them, cross the little creek and then make your choice for the night. Plenty of space for everybody.

We stayed there one night with the van. Nice place close to the park. No issues at all, note that we were there in off season though. Probably not ideal for tents due to the extreme wind.

Quiet, very close to entrance. Ideal to be early at the glacier. 3 young policemen came with thumbs up for our Iveco daily 4x4 and said that staying here is okay!

Good for a night when you arrive late. Lots of wind when we were there. Lots of dirt and animal bones in the corner where we parked.

Very quiet night, good spot close to the National Park.

Stayed here for a night before the glacier visit.
Placed our car (VW Amarok with Camper, 3,20m high) with the front toward south, which was a fault! We had very very strong wind from west over the night it felt like the would flip over- a bit scary.
Also- of you go out in the night , look out for animals.
But the next day it was only 7 minutes to the park entrance.
