We stayed here for one night in a van. We slept on the parking area. You sleep next to the Laguna Azul, which is really nice. They are still building the welcome center. There is no wind protection on the parking place so we had a bumpy night (30 kt) but it was ok.

Très pratique après le passage de la frontière et permet d aller voir le cratère et son lac. Endroit calme.
Interdit de camper dans la réserve géologique mais ok sur le parking. Certainement pas idéal pour les tentes (gravier) mais ok pour camping-car/van.
Route d accès quasi entièrement en bitume.
Pas d eau, pas de réseau claro.

big mostly flat gravel lot available to camp in about 200m before the new visitor center. the sign at the entrance says no pets but the workers said that was only to go into the crater and that they were ok at this parking area. it's a 34 second walk from the parking area to the rim to look into the crater. worth a quick stop even if your not camping.

It says no camping, but people are doing it anyway. It’s a very safe and quiet (minus the wind) place for wild camping. The only others there were one camper van and one cyclist in a tent. A very quiet night. Once the visitors’ center is built I suspect this will cease to be a decent camping spot. It’s extremely convenient with its proximity to the border.

Report Check-In

Spend quiet night on a sort of (new) parking space on the side of the acces road to the laguna. Nobody seemed to mind. More or less sheltered from wind. Fit for big rig.
‘The house’ they are building is probably the visitor centre building. It’s pretty huge, so when it’s finished it’s likely that is not permitted anymore to camp there so be aware of that.

It is forbidden to camp by the lake but you can sleep at the edge of the access track, we spent two quiet nights there.

il est interdit de camper au bord du lac mais vous pouvez dormir au bord de la piste d’accès, nous y avons passé deux nuits tranquilles.

A Laguna Azul é simplesmente deslumbrante! Ventos fortíssimos, mas não tem como não se encantar com toda essa beleza natural. Fizemos várias fotos e vídeos. Como digo sempre, o trajeto proporciona paisagens incríveis, então nem sempre o destino é o mais importante. Aprecie o trajeto! É a mão Deus boa mostrando o tanto que a natureza é linda!

Camping is forbidden (2 big signs) and they are building a house at the parking lot. Not possible to stay here.

Good place to spend the night before border crossing. The lagoon is very nice, a beautiful spot in the wilderness.

Perfect place to to stay with a Mobil home. Quiet but most of the time very windy. Tend camping is forbidden.

Convenient spot before or after border crossing, only few leveled spots and some wind protection. No services.

Beautiful spot. Stayed in our camper van on the edge of the car park. Not very flat, but very peaceful and not too windy.

Report Check-In

A quiet and safe place to stop for the night before the border, but so windy!!! The walking trails aren't very long (there are fences attempting to restrict access to the lake, too, but most people seemed to ignore them). You really don't need more than an hour or so to explore the Laguna.

Nice and free spot above the lagoon. Very windy spot but good enough to park a van or set a tent.

Seems to be always windy. We were really churned in our car. But lake is definitely worth a overnight stop.

Nice crater lake, but the parking lot is windy and less than ideal for tents. I put up my tent in the crater next to the lake. Perfect!

Good place to stay after/before the border. Although we had a very windy night.

Quite nice spot after passing the loud City Rio Gallegos. Windy, but at night it was ok. The road was good, only 1 km dirt.

Very nice place to stay overnight and cook all the stuff you are not allowed to get to Chile. Kids swam in the cold volcano lagune.

Schöner Platz vor der Grenze. Die Lagune ist sehenswert, man kann runterlaufen. Viele Vögel.

Wind. Wind. Wind. But quiet and safe.

Lovely, quiet free spot to spend the night and go on a moonlit walk to the crater. No wind in the evening while cooking and early morning, but hit the snooze too many times and finally had to strap down the roof tent in raging wind. Still recommended over staying in Rio Gallegos.

Beautiful crater lake that should be re-named Laguna Verde. Nice hike down to the shore. Just a short dirt road off the main highway to get here and very quiet and free. The parking area is extremely windy though. Wasn't possible to cook outside. Had far less wind in the morning.

Report Check-In

quiet place for a night
at 9 PM nobody on site.

Report Check-In

We were going to stay here but the wind was just too intense. No wind coverage at all. Only amenity was trash cans. Crater lake was pretty, but not a place I would recommend as a must see. Maybe the intense weather made it less appealing.

Report Check-In

Parking in parking lot just near pretty lake set in a volcanic crater. Quite a few people on the car park when we arrived but quiet later. Free. No facilities.

Lovely spot but quite windy. Keep an eye out for the colony of buff-breasted ibises...
