Description

March 2020- the campground was shut down today due to the coronavírus scare, and will probably remain closed for the duration.

Now is open . And the toilets are working.

Older, municipal campground under big trees. Benches, tables and grills. Hot showers and toilets. Small swimming pool. From here you can visit the Puente del Inca (S 32.82473 W 69.91170, 2,765 m) and the Aconcagua Provincial Park (S 32.82364 W 69.94229, 2,860 m). From Horcones Valley Trail you have a great view of the highest mountain in the Americas. The entrance fee is 200 arg. Peso / person and you are allowed to hike to the suspension bridge (about 2.5k). Who ever wants to do longer hikes on Aconcagua, the Trekking / Climbing ticket is required.

Latest Check-Ins

Excellent cost-benefit, most friendly camphosts ever!

Very large, well structured campground within walking distance to downtown Uspallata. Was also the 2nd most inexpensive camping we paid for in Argentina, and its terms of facilities, noise, etc it was the best of them all. Only black mark was the bathrooms/showers, which are in dire need of renovation -- no problem if you have toilet/shower in your vehicle like we do.

The best part is the married couple that takes care of the campground -- they were the most hospitable, friendly persons we have met in all Argentina.

important note: the campground was shut down today due to the coronavírus scare, and will probably remain closed for the duration.

250 in total for 2 persons and a car with rooftoptent. Toilets were clean, pool was open. Perfectly fine for a night.

extremly dirty campground, pool is locked up, 320 Pesos for 2 Pax + mobile home

The camping is very good. close to town. well organized

I stayed here at January /20, updating prices: 30 pesos / person, 120 per tent, 75 per car. Very huge site, with a lot of shadows, bathroom are minimal usable, you wouldnt have higher expectatives about that . The vantages of this place are: it's very cheap and good places to camp.

Good place to stay a night, payed 180 pesos for 2 People and a camper, there is potable water and warm shower, dont expect nice facilities because its really old and bad maintenance. There is electricity on the camp spot and the owners are really friendly

Stayed a night, easy walking distance to town. Shady with tall trees.
Bathroom building very old. No functioning toilet in the ladies section, very dirty and flooded with water in many areas. Did not attempt to use the shower.
This place could be nice but has not been maintained in years.
Paid 180 for 2 in a truck camper.

today it was 180 pesos. restrooms and showers (hot) are fine, have seen much worse :)
very cute street dogs, not too much barking during the night.

150 pesos 2 people and camper, a lot of tree, bbq, large area, worth the money.

-132ARS for one person and a tent
-lot of shadow and some tables and bbqs
-Hot showers but very (very) dirty
-No seats and dirty toilets
-Internet was not working

We stayed for one night, we did not use the restrooms. Large area available for any RV size. We paid 105 AR pesos (two people + RV). we recomend.

Good spot for the night or few days. really cheap (210$ for 3 person, a van and a tent) and the woman who work here is really welcoming.
Dirty toilets, it's true, but each municipal camping we've did in Argentina were cheap and dirt... this one is not worst than another.

buen camping, barrato (210$ por 3 personas, un van y una carpa) la mujer quien trabaja aqui es muy amable.
los baños son malos pero cada camping municipal que hacimos en Argentina fueron cono eso: sucios y barrato! aqui no es peor que un otro municipal...

A crazy 85 pesos the tent + 21/person. Shower with very few water, very dirty, lots of dogs eating the food as soon as you're not watching. To avoid.

By Bicycle - ar$ 21 pp + ar$82 p/ tent. Bathrooms dirty and deteriorated, hot shower very hot but with low pressure and just in females bathroom. Free wifi in front of the main house, "default". Very calm and quiet in week days.

We pay 95 pesos for 2 people and our van. the toilets are really dirty and there are almost no water in the showers, so we didnt use it. It was calm, we are the only one there. It is not maintained.

The caretaker lives in the house by the entrance.

Small swiming pool on summer, hot water, tables, barbacue

Observations about toilets and showers unfortunately remain correct. Plumbing has been renewed - to make it even worse in the end. See for yourself. Welcome to a typical argentine camping...

If you can manage another 100 km north, then head for the Barreal Municipal! The ripio was ok when we traversed.

it was open for us. caretaker was there. free to camp. no hot water but there is running water. power at the sites. nice grounds but basic amenities. excellent considering the cost is nothing.

Very ugly toilets!

Filthy, dilapidated, noisy, nice view. Free. Closed?

We stayed here 2 nights and even though it appears closed the guy who lives next door opened the gate for us. We were told that as long as you have your own toilet you can stay for as long as you want. Fire pits, water and electricity for free.

nice place. lot of trees. only cold shower and the bathrooms are not very clean. the entrance gate was open and nobody was here. we spend the night for free. wifi is working a the entrance (called "default")

this place does not exist anymore.

The price is now officially 60 Pesos per person and the use of the swimmingpool pool is 20 pesos per person. The toilets are very rundown and dirty. There is no hot water. One of the worst campings.

Decent value for the money. We paid 30 pesos per person (including for our 6 year old son), so 90 pesos total.

Still 30 per person and good value. Friendly resident cats.

Huge campground shaded with trees. Very quiet at night only annoying thing was the campground was over lit at night. We were the only ones here so it was great, could be an entirely different story on weekends and summer break. Bathrooms are a little run down, but it is only 30p per person, pretty cheap. 5 minute walk to town. Lots of outdoor space.

Big campground with lots of spots beneath high trees with tables, benches and grills. The toilets and showers are in an older building but clean. Hot showers. Not more than a 75 minute drive from the border crossing on Los Libertadores (the pass is open year round). Quiet at night. There is a pool, but it was not filled when we were here. 60 pesos for two people.

As mentioned this is a massive campsite. Was deserted when I was there accept for other people at reception. Toilets have seen better days but otherwise okay for a night. I found it a bit noisy as close to road with passing traffic with absurdly loud exhausts. If you fancy wildcamping head north out of town; there would be plenty of options.

From Horcones Valley Trail you have a great view of the highest mountain in the Americas. The entrance fee is 10 arg. Peso / person and you are allowed to hike a maximum of about 1.5 hours. Who ever wants to do longer hikes on Aconcagua, the Trekking / Climbing ticket for arg 150. Peso / person. is required

(25 arg. Peso / person and 20 arg. Peso / vehicle)

A bit rundown. Power, water, hot shower.

Price: 30 Arg peso

1901m. Unsure of cost, according to other campers nobody had come to collect for days. This looked the best of the 4 campgrounds around town. It’s close to the center of town but still quiet. Wood-fired hot water. Hostel Uspallata 5km east had wifi, a café, and was close to good hiking trails but wouldn’t allow us to camp. With some smooth talking you can probably camp and this would be a better spot.
