Latest Check-Ins

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.

In the off-season only the toilets and showers close to the cabanas are open. They were clean and the showers are hot. We paid 150 p.p.

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.
