Something not right?

Description

A beautiful Patagonian town but lacks a good overland camping spot. The free campgrounds “Campamento Confluencia” and “Camping Libre Madsen” no longer allow overnight campers. We looked at 3 private campgrounds in town, all were pretty much the same and exposed. Relincho was central, had electricity and a spacious common room. Other’s have stayed at the trailhead parking lot north of town, but it is even more exposed than the campsites.. We ended up sleeping in our two person tent. At 4AM one tent pole snapped and ripped through our rain cover. Even if you think you’re wind-proof, you’ll sleep like a sailor on rough seas. Really bad internet!!!!
Not wind sheltered at all.

Stayed here for two nights. Busy campsite, but that’s El Chalten. Everything is okay and works. Wifi is bad (only for Whatsapp)

I've visited this camping in january and it was a great experience. It's a little bit expensive than other campings but it has the best showers, bathrooms, and kitchen. If you are in the administration you'll have wifi connection but avoid the central time because the network collapses. Everyone is so nice, you can ask them anything and they will help you with a smile. I loved El Chalten, is the most beautiful place I've ever seen. Make sure the weather is going to be aproppiate to do your hikes, and enoy it!

(Don't miss "Laguna de los tres", it's difficult but it's completley worthy!)

large and somewhat crowded campsite. To few toilets and showers and at rush hours full, warm and not very clean. 10.000 pesos pp and 3.000 for a car. When you pay cash 8.000 pp.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Although there were a lot of campers, it was ok, also at night. Good showers with hot water but not a lot of space to put your stuff. The dressing room is shared with other people.

Great camping with a big common area and big kitchen where you can easily cook with multiple people. Showers (hot water) and toilets were very clean. Would definitely recommend this camping!

Report Check-In

Yes, the facilities and staff are great. But for our taste it is a victim of its own success. People who like a quiet site with an outdoor sleep cycle (going to bed and waking up early) might have a tough time. Already very busy early december. And when its busy, its gets more likely you encounter people with different habits. It feels like an open air hostel. It happened to us twice that others arrive late (at 23:00) and pitch their tent next to us, slamming car doors and excitingly talking about their arrival until past midnight.

Camping with a hostel atmosphere. The managers are cool. The pitches are not demarcated and not separated from other campers and the wifi is terrible, same in El Chaltén , the two downside for me. The common sanitary facilities are neat and new. Rather central. 13,000 pesos in cash

I stayed in this place for a week. What a place!!!!! great great showers, a common area warm, a good kitchen. The only thing is the kitchhen doesn´t have pots and stuff like that.
All the people who said is expensive are mice!!! now the rate with a credit card is near to the dollar blue!! So per two people 5600 pesos is like 15 usd, for this kind of camping is just price!

Really nice campground. Lots of space, close to restaurants and hikes, Wifi is good. Common area in main building (kitchen, dining) really nice. Showers hot and ok but basic and a bit moldy. There are only four showers though (8 total woman+man) for the entire campground so I guess this would a problem during high season. Payed 6100 for car+2 people.

stayed here 1 night after completing the huemul circuit. clean bathrooms and good pressure hot showers. busy campsite but not overcrowded this time of year. good indoor common area facilities and big kitchen if weather bad outside. 6100 for 2 people and campervan

Good spot for our larger motorhome. Easily walk to everything in town, market near by, access to trails. Many nice flat spots, decent wind protection, has sewer to dump waste water and many hoses to fill with fresh water. Spots have plug ins for electricity. Very clean bathrooms and good strong hot showers, the place is very well maintained. As others mentioned the only downside is that it’s expensive (currently 2500 pp plus 600 for campervan; younger children half price)

Very popular place even when not in peak season. The facilities here are very good. It’s got space for truck campers and can likely fit bigger rigs. If you’re there in high season there’s no way you’ll get a spot so see about booking in advance if possible.

capitalist campground. 100 tents and and only 8 toilets. should be illegal to have so many people with so few toilets cost 2500 at height of holidays in January

Report Check-In

Custou 10.300,00 ARS para 4 pessoas, com uma barraca de teto com anexo. O camping deixa a desejar no sentido de ter poucos banheiros e duchas para o volume de pessoas que frequentam o camping. A ducha funciona com senha, que sempre expira às 10h do dia seguinte. Tem um espaço relativamente amplo de uso coletivo, para cozinhar e lavar louças e roupas, mas ainda assim se torna pequeno para o número de pessoas que frequenta o espaço. A internet é difícil de conectar, acredito que se deva ao fato, também, do grande número de pessoas que compartilham.

We came and based on what we saw… we left! It’s a right zoo in there right now, super busy there is about 2 meters between tents and at least 70 tents cramped in this grassy field. No real wind shelter, no privacy and people crawling on top of each other everywhere. We chose to head out of town to find some peace and shelter from the wind, we found that at Bonanza 10kms to the north…

Report Check-In

Nice campsite, imho the only one in town that are good for campervans. Quite expensive though, 2500 ppn plus 300 per car. Managed very strict, with checkout times (10 am!) and daily changing codes for the showers. Bathrooms are clean, showers hot and unlimited. WiFi exists but is not usable as everywhere in El Chalten. The place is very busy at high season, but that's due to the lack of alternatives...

Report Check-In

The structure is good, there is a collective kitchen, bathrooms, showers, ok. But the internet connection is extremely bad, sometimes they don't even send texts through Whatsapp and it seems that they receive more people than the camping can accommodate, and that makes the bathrooms and showers insufficient... Maybe it's easier for those who have a motorhome, just park and use your own structure, but after all, why do we pay? It costs 2,500 ARS per person and another 300 ARS for the car. But think carefully before spending, research the options in the region!

Sobre a estrutura é boa, tem cozinha coletiva, banheiros, duchas, ok. Mas a conexão de internet é extremamente ruim, às vezes não manda nem texto pelo Whatsapp e parece que eles recebem mais pessoas do que o camping comporta, e isso torna os banheiros e duchas insuficientes... Talvez quem tem motorhome seja mais fácil, apenas estacionar e usar sua própria estrutura, mas afinal de contas, por que pagamos? Custa 2.500 ARS por pessoa e mais 300 ARS pelo carro. Mas pense bem antes de gastar, pesquise as opções da região!

Very good camping in the middle of town. Walking distance to the trailheads. Common room is amazing: warm, big, clean, great kitchen. Same for toilets and best hot water showers. You can't rely on the wifi, but that is everywhere in town. Not the best wind shelter.

Report Check-In

A great campsite! We stayed for several nights while based in El Chalten, 2,200 pesos per person per night and 400 for the van.

There’s no doubt this is the best shower we’ve had in South America (including some air bnbs!) The water is hot and the toilets are clean and have toilet roll! There’s a shared common area and kitchen which are great, especially in the wind and rain. They can get a little full if the campsite is busy but everyone is friendly.

The location is great, you can walk to all the shops and bars, the trail heads and the climbing.

The wifi was average while we were here and would often drop out for hours at a time but I think that’s just Patagonia.

This is definitely a great campsite base for exploring El Chalten!

Stayed here for two nights to enjoy the beautiful national park. Good place to stay with a camper, with a tent maybe look for another place since there is nearly no wind protection! Wasn't packed when we stayed, but the kitchen and the heated dinning area where at the brink. So better if you're able to cook in your car. Spotless bathrooms and shower are pure luxury after a long day of hiking in the strong winds. Internet nearly disfunctional. Price went up 11.2$ per person (1200 pesos) plus 3.7$ (400 pesos) for the van.

We stayed one night at this big camping in El Chalten. It has the best showers we had so far in Argentina and a big, modern, light and friendly cooking and dining room. For tents there is only limited shelter (wooden fences), for campers it is perfect. It cost us 2200 pesos for one night (two persons, little camper).

To add to previous comment...if you pay in cash, it is 1100 pesos per person. This place was super-crowded on a Thursday and Friday night in January. There is a sanitation dump station here!!! This is only the second one we have seen in 18 months travelling in South America.

Covid update - we stayed 5 nights and very few people here. Bathrooms clean and very hot water and strong water pressure. Electricity at sites. Internet only at the reception. Water faucets in the motorhome area. Friendly staff told us that in a normal year this place is packed full of camper vans, (300 people at one time last year, he said!) so maybe it gets loud but it was very quiet when we were here - we were the only camper one night! 700 pesos per person. //

Awesome place . Great bathrooms .. hot showers clean. They do have wifi . Common clean kitchen. If you plan to stay in city it's a great place to camp. Good for medium rigs ( truck camper ). 150 pp and 50 for the rig. They accept dollars and arg pesos. There is a common room ( heated) which is great to socialize. There are no good over landing spots in el chalten city. This is the best. We checked other places and they were dumps( even the ones mentioned here ). Got a rig and want to stay in city stay here. All hikes start from city anyways and you do need a hot shower and and place to protect you from wind and bad weather when you get back.

Large grassy campground with some shields for wind shelter. Ablutions and electricity supply ok, but prohably insufficient in high season. Nice common room and kitchen. Walking distance to village. No wifi. Expensive: ARG 300 (2 adults, camper)

Report Check-In

Probably the best looking campsite with a nice common area and grassfield, but probably the worst deal you can make in Argentina during high season... We paid 120 per person and 60 for the car and got a spot without any facilities. On a relatively large area there are only a couple of trees, windbreaks and electricity hookups. There is no wifi, no fire pits, no picknick tables, no water taps. There were about 200 guests and very few facilities: so queues for everything (even filling a bottle of water or doing your dishes) and often cold showers. Toilets and showers were often broken or flooded and dirty (though cleaning was done at least twice per day). Even knowing everything in El Chalten is more expensive and camping with cars/motorhomes is not possible on all campsites (there are more than iOverland shows!), we would not recommend this one..

We camped here for convenience to be in town for one night as we needed to do laundry. There are four laundries to choose from in town. There is a great bar/ restaurant opposite the entrance to the campground serving good beer. The spaces are quite tight where you park up against the fence to hook up for power. Windy of course! The common room kitchen was very busy and a bit untidy and the showers like all camp showers in Argentina are in need of some attention but plenty of hot water. We paid AP300 for two + vehicle.

Free area by trailhead is very exposed to the wind which is powerful here. 80 pesos per person plus 30 for a car, or 15 per motor bike. Indoor kitchen and refrigerator available. Lots of backpackers here. Lots....wind breaks are only about 8 feet, we were much higher than the wind break, so we did not get much sleep, too windy. Music played all night from a near by bar on Friday that you could hear from the upper camping area.

Huge campground in the middle of town. Grassy areas with power and water. Very windy. The best spots regarding wind and noise are in the upper level. Common kitchen (filthy!) and bathrooms with hot showers (24h). We paid 80 pesos per person plus 30 pesos for the truck.

Big campground with a really nice common area & good showers. Unfortunately, bathrooms & kitchen (well equipped) weren't really clean, but the showers are great anyway. 80 ARG pP, 15 ARG per motorbike (20 ARG per car).

A beautiful Patagonian town but lacks a good overland camping spot. The free campgrounds “Campamento Confluencia” and “Camping Libre Madsen” no longer allow overnight campers. We looked at 3 private campgrounds in town, all were pretty much the same and exposed. Relincho was central, had electricity and a spacious common room. Other’s have stayed at the trailhead parking lot north of town, but it is even more exposed than the campsites.. We ended up sleeping in our two person tent. At 4AM one tent pole snapped and ripped through our rain cover. Even if you think you’re wind-proof, you’ll sleep like a sailor on rough seas.

AR$35 per person, AR$10 for car/elec.
