Latest Check-Ins

Decent campsite for a night. Hot water, secure and spacious with good room for larger vehicles. Potable water, washing area and clean toilets. Can be a little dusty but protected from the wind largely.

Nice campground as described by others. We arrived at heavy rain so driving out to wild camping towards the Pinguin reserve was not an option for the night.
paid 510 pesos for 2 people in a truck camper.

Clean bathrooms, hot showers, view of the sea. Kike and José, the managers, have big hearts and helped me with mental and practical support when my car was in a sorry state. I felt at home

big campsite it's clean and there is hot water at the shower the price now is 350 for one night one person and a Moto there is no WiFi neither so a fairly dear camping experience

Came to stay for one night but in the end three nights at this beautiful place. We liked Camarones a lot and the camping is very nice. Paid 540 for two people, car included, for the first night. Then 340 for each night for both persons. Nice camp manager, very clean bathrooms, nice hot showers. Still no WiFi, though they told us that they're currently in discussion with the municipality about installing one. Maybe next year, who knows. 😊

Good showers and parrillas. It has good protection for the wind too. The manager is great and very friendly. There's a small store to buy food (empanadas, torta fritas, pizza, beer). No wifi.

Really nice camp site with sea view and a very nice manager! Cleanest bathrooms we‘ve seen in the last weeks. If you stay for more than one night, you only have the pay the price per person, the price for the camper is charged only once.

Nice big place with nice operator. Sanitary facilities are clean and functional. A large grill and table system is available and can also be very good as a windbreak.
Beach is across the street.
Highly recommended!

Price is now 510 pesos (2p plus car). Hot shower still a trickle.
The penguin colony is a must! A natural setting, more so than Punta Tombo. Great ranger too, very friendly, speaks English.

Very friendly owner. Nice and clean camping space. A lot of good parillas.
Definitely recommended.
No WiFi.

We decided not to stay here but paid 60 per person for a shower. The showers are not good, low pressure (you have to back against the wall to get wet) and the hot water ran out right away. It was clean. Would rather wild camp than stay here.

The whole campground including the facilities is exceptionally clean and in very good condition. Large area. Separate sinks for washing laundry and dishes. A whole hallway of toilets & showers.

The site manager Jose (calls himself "el negro") is very kind and helpful: when our van wouldn't start in the morning it took him exactly 5 minutes to organize a qualified mechanic who helped us get on our way.

We arrive around 20h and Jose was at administration. Nice and helpful guy. Hot showers, electricity on site, no WiFi, good bathrooms, a little restaurant with simple food.
We paid 510$ for The first night (2pers and a car), second night $340 They allows pets .

Good campsite to pitch a tent. There are a lot of areas where you can make a BBQ, electricity, hot water. It is next to the beach and some shops in the neighborhood.
We paid for first night 430 (2people + tent)
Second night 340. There was no WiFi!
In the center the sportcenter (big yellow building next to the bus terminal)has free WiFi.

Expensive and a strange manager.
Clean toilet and shower.
590 pesos (2pax and travelcar)

Nice bathrooms, clean and hot showers. Station for cloth and dishwashong. We were the only guests here and payed 180 ars all incl. This is the new rate for motorhomes.

They really made a very nice upgrade of the place (we stayed here during our trip in 2001) - nice people as well, onside restaurant. Windprotection, Poweroutlets.

Although it looked closed (with piles of sand behind the main gate), there was an entrance 100m after that gate. Bathroom was clean and showers were hot. No wifi or movistar reception, but there's a free internet that you can register to use in front of the city hall (I didn't). Someone came to collect. 100 pesos per person plus 100 for the van.

Camp is fully done. Very neat and clean toilets. Cost is 100pp + 150 for motohome(I think it's a one off cost). Too expensive for one night We stayed next to beach with great view for free on way to penguins :)

Very expensive for just a campsite. The facilities are clean and well maintained, so it might be worth it to freshen up here. Cost run down : 100 pp for camping, 50 for a tent, cars 100, motorhomes 150, motorcycle 50, showers 30 pp.

We, 2 pers, ended up paying 350 ARS for just one night with our car and tent.

We had a very nice lunch here on a sunny terrace (salmon with potatoes/salad, 220 pesos)!

now 100 p.p. and in adition 150 for a motorhome. too expensive! we got a hot shower and water for free and left soon

Nice place with view on the sea.
The camping will be officially open in January (they are now renovating the site) but you can camp here FOR FREE before the opening!
Tent and motor home friendly.

New HOT shower and bathroom.
Quiet at night, we recommend this place.
We don't know the future price but we spent two days here for free (10/12/2016)

Definitely open. Everything has recently been repainted. Shower / toilet block is immaculate.

The young lady at the tourist information office sent me here saying there are two official campgrounds in the area: this one and the one at Bahia Secada. One other tent was here when I arrived. No sign of anyone asking for money. Administration office is closed and all furniture missing.

Der Campingplatz ist offen, hat Strom und kaltes Wasser. Heiße Duschen gibt es ab Donnerstag bis Sonntag nebenan bei den Publikumstoiletten. Zur Zeit ist er kostenlos.

the place is not officially open but you can use it for free (with water and electricity). today there were men from municipalidad working and fixing a new tank water so it seems it will be officially open soon.

This place is permanently closed.
