Vários jogos de banheiros e churrasqueiras. Muitas tomadas de energia. Pontos de água apenas nos tanques. Falta constante de água no verão. Próximo da pequena cidade.

We spent two nights here, we were told it's the only option for motorhomes. There are "motorhome parking prohibited" signs along the edge of Puerto Pirâmides, so we decided not to risk it. There was no one to answer when we arrived. The showers are only open from 6pm to 8pm, too bad that.

1.000 pesos ARS p.p.

Passamos duas noites aqui, fomos informados que é a única opção para motorhomes. Há placas "proibido estacionar motorhome" pela orla de Puerto Pirâmides, decidimos não arriscar. Não tinha ninguém pra atender quando chegamos. Os chuveiros só são abertos das 18h às 20h, muito ruim isso.

Huge campground, closed at this time of the year. But you are allowed to use it. We were told at the entrance/ visitor center that it is the only place on the peninsula where we can camp. Toilets, showers closed. No water. WLAN encrypted with password. Only electricity is there.

Report Check-In

o camping é imenso e bem estruturado. esta com aspecto de abandonado e nao tem funcionários na recepção para cobrar as entradas. acampamos duas noites e não pagamos. não conseguimos usar os banheiros por causa da sujeira. acredito que não nos cobraram por se tratar de baixa temporada. tinham outras pessoas usando o camping e também não pagaram. custa 750,00 pesos argentinos por pessoa + 500,00 pesos argentinos por barraca.

Report Check-In

Lausy, filthy, dirty...the place is now wheather open nor closed. You can stay there like nesrly wild, they say, that electricity should work. But there is no water, therefore no shower and only the mens bathroom was open, but in very dirty condition and not usable. We can not understand, that the community will let the place in this condition. It is the only place on the island, it's forbidden to camp wild on the island and there are travellers coming during the whole year! What are they supposed to do, if they are in need of toilets? Leave the island in the evening, looking around for a proper place, and come back the other day, paying the entry again? It's just a big shame...

Report Check-In

We asked the tourist information on the first street next to the whale's tail about this campsite. the answer is that it is free, only the toilets were not working. but at the gate that was open there is a sign saying to call on whatsapp to open and they charge you. it seems abandoned but there is energy in the sockets, but for this doubt and there is no need we didn't stay at the campsite.

'Completo' at Thursday mid-day, so we moved further to the west for RV beach parking. It would have been nice if we had been informed of 'completo' at the entry gate or the visitor centre. Maybe it's a good idea to inquire at entry and ask about other options as it is a long drive back and Puerto Madryn would be the best option.

Report Check-In

Big campground! We arrived quite late ( 21.00) found out the camping was fully booked! As wild camping is not allowed at the peninsula we managed to get one ( last) spot in the middle of an un sheltered sandy bottom, thanks to the very friendly staff! Luckily there was not a lot of wind…Showers extremely clean, hot water! A big building, toilets separated from the showers. Advice: make a reservation for this camping or ask at the entrance of the national park (where you pay) if they can call the camping, otherwise you have to drive al the way back. Probably this is only necessary in high season.

Report Check-In

Actual closed. There is a sign that said up to 28.10. the camping is closed. No information about reopening.

Report Check-In

the camping is now free but with no service . only running water from some tape near parilla places.

Report Check-In

Very Nice place to stay. We paid 250 pesos per perso and 150 for the car with roof tent. The bathrooms are very clean, but due to the scarcity of water, the shower is only available from 7pm to 10pm. Near to the beach.

Report Check-In

Since it is the only camping site on the peninsula, you do not have that many options. Considering that, it is a solid and clean place. Everything is fine

Report Check-In

Only camping on the island. We stayed there two nights from Friday to Sunday. While it was culturally quite interesting (kids running around and nocking at our door to see who is inside, Parilla and fiesta until late) it was not so relaxing like usually on Patagonian camp grounds. Hot showers were provided in the evening depending on the time the ware truck arrived. The beach is directly behind the camping but has the tendency to get crowded in the summer (and a bit dirty). Big downer was that on the beach and the camping the dunes smelled like pee because many people went there when the bathrooms were closed. If you are traveling with a motor home I would recommend to stay at the parking in the port area (it's ok I asked the rangers).

they clean so much and every time the bathroom is closed. At "prime time" in the morning you basically can't use it. ait's really counterproductive

affordable, very clean (a little exegarated, they clean all the time), cheap but very noisy....and this even before the beginning of the season. Don't want to be here un january...

Report Check-In

Stayed there for two nights. Very sheltered from the wind. No views, toilets tolerable, showers closed and power at the lamp posts where the lights were on. Met the „manager“ who said it was free because of no showers. No potable water there.

Report Check-In

Open but not free at all! 250p per person PLUS 150p for the car. We didn’t stay and just parked a few meters away at the beach. There’s a sign saying “no camping” but we asked the police officer if we can sleep in the car here and he said yes right at the parking lot we can stay - for free.

Report Check-In

No one was there when we arrived eventhough the travel agency we used in Puerto madryn to book the whale cruise called and was told the camping is open.
Toilets were open and clean (there was even a cleaning lady in the morning), showers were closed and there was no electricity. I talked to someone that said the day before they paid and everything was running fine and there was someone at the gate, not sure what happened the night we were there. We stayed for free, no one was there at night or next morning to collect payment.

Report Check-In

As it is the only legal option, we stayed here. However, the campground itself is not really nice, toilets are ofter very dirty and showers are only open 2 hours from 6-8pm. Showers were hot though. Camp manager is often not here, doesn‘t really care. We paid 650pp and night. After claiming, that it is too expensive we didn‘t have to pay for the 3rd night. If it weren‘t for the good company we would have left right away.

Report Check-In

Not a nice place. Little to no shade. Electricity is only available where the campsite employee wants it. The employee also determines the opening times of the showers. The times are completely different from the times shown and are at times when nobody actually takes a shower. Water is often only rationed or not at all. The showers and toilets, like all sanitary facilities, are catasrophal dirty and defective.
Here you can clearly see the excesses of capitalism combined with a monopoly.
This place was the most expensive and worst place in Argentina.
We were already here in 2018 and nothing has improved until 2019.

Report Check-In

With 1000 pesos for 2 adults, 2 little kids (no costs) and a camper quite expensive as it is the only campsite on Valdés. But the campspots near the dune in the lower area are quite nice and wind-protected. Great showers, but only open between 6 pm and 7:30 pm. Bring enough cash as you can‘t pay with credit cards and the only ATM in town was not working.

Report Check-In

One look in the toilet bowls was enough. Gross.
bye bye and see you never again

Report Check-In

Off season - quite okay. Basic toilets- no shower working at our stay. But the stay was for free.

Report Check-In

We asked the tourist office and they told us that the camping is acessible in low season but has no servicies (meaning the showers are closed and nobody cleans the bathrooms...), there is electricity at least. There are no guards at the camping. It is free of charge.

Report Check-In

When we came the place was closed but it was possible to stay. There is electricity but thats it. The camping is clean but the sanitair building is very very very dirty. But the place is free and is a good place to stay and visit the town.

Report Check-In

Officially shut but electricity and bathrooms (no shower) and sinks for washing up/clothes. Clean and comfortable.

Nice camping near the beach. Free because its the off season... The toilets were opened, lot of barbecues, really quite !!

Report Check-In

Leaving today, gladly. Wife tried to wash her hair before leaving, but it was forbidden to do it in the showers (what?!) and "as a special favor" was allowed to do it in one of the sinks. What an expensive, overregulated place!

Report Check-In

2nd night here. Left the motorhome at the campsite and drove away in the truck to explore Peninsula Valdez. Arrived late to a very warm home (tree cover is deficient, and that at the best site we were able to find as the campground was quite full -- and when I came to the reception to pay for one more night, they told me it gets even more crowded during the weekends! I'm glad we will be leaving before then).

Report Check-In

Really big campground, many separate areas for motorhomes, tents, and travel trailers. Quite expensive: we paid 1000 (!) argentinian pesos for a night with only 2 people in a motorhome (250 per person + 500 for the motorhome). They don't take cards, can only pay in cash. When we arrived there was no electric energy, and the guys at the reception didn't warn us about it, so we spent the best part of half an hour trying to figure out why I had no electricity inside the motorhome after plugging it in. I almost left then and there, but the electricity had returned by the time I went to the reception to get my money back. Guy in a trailer next site said it was out for 4 hours, but that blackouts were quite unusual (he looked like he was camped there for a long time). Also, no wifi, and the showers have a 3 minute time limit.

big campsite. got stuck in the sand once. so don't go to the part near the shop. was free for Christmas. a lot of locals driving quats all night. no light in the bathroom facilities, maybe for the best...

spent three nights here. apparently it was "closed" until the 23rd of December, means showers are closed but toilets open (not so clean though). Else lots of space for any size camperhome.

Report Check-In

Camping closed during off season. Gates open free camping. No services except water.

Report Check-In

The place is still closed for off season although it’s high season for viewing the whales. Gates are open, potable water available and the bins are regularly emptied. Good shelter from the wind. Typically between 5 and 10 campers here per night, consequently parts of the site are ‘disgusting’. Complete madness not having the toilets open and a health risk. Toilets in town open from about 9am to early evening.

Report Check-In

Not open end of September but the gate was not closed and we stayed anyway. Site is well located behind the dunes and the outside dish washing facilities worked well.

Report Check-In

The campsite is closed for off-season, but the gates are not locked. we spent one night, the wind finally did not bother us.

Report Check-In

Oficialy closed, but we were informed by rangers that we can camp inside without using facilites which are closed.
Anyway the status of the place appeared to be strange. Gate was closed and locked sometimes, but still couple of places were occupied.
Rather dirty and dusty but with good wind protection and free at this time of the year. Facilities were closed indeed but electricity and running water were still available. We spent two nights there. All other spots were too windy that days.

Report Check-In

Worst place during 2 month car trip.

Do not recommend this place:

- shower closes at 8pm
- no water in toilets at evening and morning
- drunk people walked at night
- few aggressive dogs
- some unpleasant staff
- dirty camp areas

Only one thing we liked was good shelter from the wind.

Very crowded, no shade most taken by permanent spots. Very dirty toilets , showers were locked. Dusty/ sandy

Even though the campground is officially closed at this time of tbe year, bathrooms were very clean (but no showers) and electricity is available. It's a big campground in front of the beach and close to the city. For free when it's "closed". I loved it and stayed for 5 days.

We stayed here as we arrived late
in hindsight I wished wed pushed on to the wild camping. it was jam packed with tents everywhere as had to squeeze ours in a tiny spot next to the rubbish bins. they ride round the site on their atvs all night, the toilets were filthy and over half in the ladies didn't even have doors. We packed up and left the next morning, after telling the guy how unhappy we were he refunded our camp fee. the wild camp's are beautiful, I'd just go straight there
