Great campground! We stayed in the A section (with electricity and water taps) for 260pp ($7). Not busy on weekdays, would avoid this section on weekends. In the B sites (no water/electric 210pppn), there are tons of awesome secluded spots, just drive around until you find your own little slice of heaven! No beach views, only forest spots. The bathroom block we used (on iOverlander) were cleaned daily and had hot water. Our site had a fire pit and there are shops throughout the park that sell necessities. There are reasonably priced cabins for rent also that looked nice. You don’t need to stay 3 nights, that’s just what you pay if you lose your receipt. Free for day visits!

This is a huge camping area for several thousand tents/rigs set in a spacious national park along side the Atlantic coast. It’s run by the army, though not much of them to see except at the entrance. It could be so wonderful, but it’s quite disorganised with pitches and the toilets and showers were ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING - such a shame to have to pay to camp and they expect you to put up with those facilities. Was quite busy we were there on a weekend but early season so many shops/kiosks not yet open in the park. Lots of teenagers and families in big groups having a lot of fun and a lot of loud music - but that’s what we bring ear plugs for!
Beach is vast you can walk for kms .. saw lots of seals.
If only they would modernise the toilet blocks, keep them clean this place would be magical

huge camping ground, we were here shortly before high season and could choose from vast spaces but shops and restaurants were closed. we decided not to stay in the forest but on the parking lot right beside the Santa Teresa sign to have a view on the sea. the park itself is quite confusing, but with nice and quiet surroundings. the registration is right at the park entrance but they had no map or further information of the park. at the laguna we spotted carpinchos so we were happy ;)

Quiet in November and there is plenty of space for every type of rig. Probably busy on the weekends and during the holiday season. Many electrical outlets and many water taps in La Moza area. Beautiful area to walk, along the beach or to the fort, or through the trees. The bathrooms are ancient and not easily accessed. 400 pesos for 2 people and camper.

Beautiful location to camp in (especially at the other sppts marked here). Panaderia in the park offers great food. 3 night stay only mandatory in the high season. Imagine the high season to be too crowded though.

Report Check-In

We didn't like the camping not suitable for trucks. There is no camping place by the sea, in the camping the parking lots are very small among the trees and not leveled.

Best camping in Uruguay (so far) massive area, beautiful nature, find you own corner, great beaches and surf. Options available to purchase food but sometimes limited, has daily fresh pastries. 600UR for 3 nights/person (min 3 night stay) highly recommended

ótimo lugar para acampar. área com energia, água, banheiros limpos. também tem vagas sem água e energia que são mais baratas. mínimo são 3 noites que você precisa pagar.

Un parque nacional muy lindo. la entrada es gratis pero hay que pagar 200UY por persona para acampar. hay electricidad en todos los sitios y mucho espacio. 4 playas. un aviario y una fortaleza para visitar. Los baños no están en buenas condiciones. Son como de ejército o cárcel. no tienen tazas. mucha tranquilidad. comparado con los camping de punta del diablo solo el baño es mejor en el camping la viuda. no hay WiFi pero si muy buena señal de teléfono. que es muy fácil conseguir en Uruguay siendo extranjero.

Camping rustique, emplacement avec point d’eau et électricité. WC douches chaudes suffisant pour un bivouac
Nous n’avons pas pu profiter du parc car mauvais temps

Report Check-In

We were there off-season. Admission to the park is free, camping is 200 $ per person. Beautiful place, splendid beaches. Almost no-one around. Most of the park facilities closed. Bathroom open, with warm (not hot) water and generally speaking not in a good condition.

Beautiful beaches and lovely trails. The fort is well worth a visit and the bird sanctuary is really interesting. The south entrance was the only open entrance on 20 Nov 2021 but you can easily move north within the park to camping areas A and B which seemed to be the only sections open. They were full on a Saturday night, mainly with tents but the place was still very quiet. Electricity and water are available to most sites. The bathroom situation is not good, indeed. Try to find a site near an open and operating bathroom before you settle as you will otherwise have a long walk. The fee for three days was 1080 pesos for two people and a camper. Very reasonable and worthwhile. We loved it and stayed for three days. No wifi but a good cell signal.

O camping tem água e energia. Os banheiros perto não estavam habilitados por ser fora de temporada, assim como o mercadinho estava fechado. Dormimos 3 noites no nosso motorhome e amamos o lugar. Super bem cuidado, área preservada e praias lindas!

The beaches and the location are really nice. The toilets are a mess. One toilet house was destroyed inside. I dont want to imaging what it is like when thousends of campers are there. Check the hours of service at the restaurants if you want to eat dinner. We spend two nights (pay for three).

Amazing park, very big and very idyllic. Great walks and beaches. Also good surf if the waves are there. The park has a crazy capacity for camping in the thousand (numbered signs of places). When were there they only opened up for 2 sections. Only a handful of others camping. Facilities very dirty but hot water though. 180pesos p/pers. stayed 4 nights. Loved it

Huge campground. We camped up near bathroom block that has the wonderfully hot showers. Entrance to park near fort was closed so had to enter by main entrance. Checked in with military and asked if we could stay overnight. Left after two nights, no one asked for money although some said they "registered" and paid.

Indeed this campground is open. Limited facilities in off season. We enjoed perfect hot shower. Power and water on site! Stayed at section la moza.

Report Check-In

We arrived at 16:45 at the gate. We were informed, that nobody from camping was around and we should check in tomorrow, but we could use the camping. On spot: no toilet open, no electricity, no wifi, no water, no infrastructure whatsoever. We stayed nonetheless, but refused to pay in the morning (were stopped at the gate), which was accepted after a bit of a discussion. I cannot recommend this camp ground in winter. I rather camp wild, there I know, I don‘t have facilities.

Great place to visit and spend some nights, specially off-season. On season it gets really crowded. Nice beaches around and walking distance places to visit in the national park. There are two entrances. The one by Fortaleza de Santa Teresa (North) get closed at night. So if you get there late, you should ride to the main entrance of the park at ruta 9 (South). They normally charge 180 pp, but off season there is no control. There is water and electricity at sites.

We were looking for a quiet place for Christmas! After the noise of Chilean and Argentine campers this was a dream, you could hear a pin drop after 10pm except Christmas and New Year’s Eve when it was a little noisy until 1am. We needed a plug-in so were lucky to get one this close to Christmas. The plug-ins (240V 25A) are roughly at this location and nowhere else in the park. Each also has a water tap. We paid $240/person. After Christmas the number of people looking for plug-in far exceeded supply and it all got a little hectic. The bathrooms are in need of refurbishment but were kept tolerably clean. Even with this number of campers plus day visitors the beaches were far from crowded. By the New Year even none serviced sites were becoming hard to find. There are a number of beaches, all great and the whole site is a little like an English stately home, make sure you walk around the gardens and visit the bird hide. The fort is also well worth a visit.

Noite teria sido tranquila caso não ocorresse uma tempestade de granizo. Um bom lugar para acampar.

Night would have been quiet had there not been a hailstorm. A good place to camp.

Arrived at dusk and we're told we would pay a ranger tomorrow, but they never came. So we stayed for free probably because it was out of season. All amenities were closed and running water was off at our toilet block. Beautiful beaches and spacious campsites amongst the eucalypts.

100 pesos per person per night. We visited off season and it was quiet with very nice beaches. Did not use restroom as they are all closed. The Fort is interesting and open Wednesday to Sunday.

Admission to the park is free. There are eight different areas for camping. Very nice in the eucalyptus forest located sites with electricity and water. The bathrooms are very basic. For the showers you have the choice between cold and ice cold water. In the park you can visit the old fort of Santa Teresa, visit the beautiful sandy beaches and do long walks. From August to October you might be able to spot whales off the coast.
