They told us camping is not possible anymore as there isn't enough space for it(we have Toyota land cruiser, no big RV or van)

we stayed here for two nights with our Sprinter. it will fit and a level spot is near the trampoline. warm shower beautifull views. we walked to the entrance of the Santa Ana trail in 20 minutes ( opposite Christal camp). no guide nescesary.

Report Check-In

Not the best place to camp in a camper. Impossible to reach the good campspots with a 2 wheel drive. Other spots are really not level. Better to go to the Casa Crystal campground. More space and easier to reach.

Great spot for camping, we have a 22 foot van and came in with no problem. They will help you get guides from the camp to the volcanoes, if you want. There are bathrooms, showers, Wi-Fi, and Restaurant. There are nice cabanas too, great views. Very quiet at night and Oscar, the manager, was a great help.

Price is still $7 p/p. Wifi is a little hit and miss but was necessary for us as we’d just crossed the border and hadn’t sorted out a SIM card. If you get a clear day, then the mirador is a must. At the beginning of May this campsite didn’t see much sun. There was thick fog all weekend and it was quite dark and gloomy (it is a fog forest after all). You would also need a small rig with 4X4 to camp. There are hardly any level spots and it’s a bit of a challenge to park up. Unfortunately we really can’t vouch for the restaurant. The meat platter in the evening was not to be recommended. Maybe the cook was on vacation. We did enjoy getting to know the locals though- they had come up from San Salvador for the weekend. If you’re here for Santa Ana volcano, then it definitely makes sense to stay at Casa de Cristal. See our review there.

As described. The hot water was not working but they did not offer the use of a different shower. The staff is very friendly and the coffee is good.

Very nice campground with bathroom and shower. The hot water wasn't working so they allowed us showering in one of the houses. $7 pp/night. Stunning mirrador and very nice staff. They have wifi and a restaurant with good food. The volcan tour starts from Casa cristal (15mins walking distance) and costs $2 for the guide and $6 the entance. We stayed two nights and really enjoyed it.

$5 p. Person. Not many level spaces (2). Very quiet. Tigo 3G coverage. Used low range to reach the spot (wet grass, uphill)

$6 usd per person as of May 1st 2016. This is one our favorite places we camped in El Salvador. Temperature are cool, the place is very quiet. We camped beautiful grassy hill with trees surrounded by deep vegetation. The place has cabins, restrooms and power outlets about 30m from where we camped. The staff are very friendly. Hi clearance is recommended to make it up the dirt road. 4x4 may not be needed but it's recommended especially during the rainy season. This is about 15 away from the National Park parking lot where most overlanders stay. We thought it was well worth the drive to the park in the morning to stay in a very beautiful peaceful place.

A beautiful, quiet, and *cool* (temperature) campground up in the mountains, but it's down a pretty bad dirt road. 4x4 recommended. Only a 5 minute drive down the hill from where you start the hike up Volcán Santa Ana. $6 per person with bathrooms and showers.
