Something not right?

Description

This has to be one of the nicest campgrounds we’ve seen in Chile. Each site has shelter with picnic table, grill, rubbish bin and potable water tap. There are temperamental hot showers and clean toilets. The campground has two sections (both with bathrooms) the far section isn’t always open. Each campsite is potentially shared if there are many visitors -- limits are 1 vehicle, 3 tents, and 8 people per site.

Latest Check-Ins

Great campsite! Each site has a Refugio shelter w/ picnic table and space to cook. Hot showers. In high season you have to share sites, but we had a huge site all to ourselves. More Carretera tips at @nutritiontraveller on Instagram :)

We were told we could not park our big rig here for camping but could for the day hike.

Overlander pro tip: if you are just doing the hike and not camping, park by the restrooms and then use the showers right next door on your way out. Free hot shower!

They don't allow any camper longer than 5.5m. We have 6m and they would not accept us.

Run by a private concessionaire, the sites are nice but they are shared which means they will cram each site full of people, if possible. The limit is 1 vehicle, 3 tents, and 8 people per site. The shelters are small and not really suitable for sharing among two or three different groups.

Beautiful campground! Nice large private areas with sheltered table and chairs, potable water faucet, bin and a grill (although no fires were allowed when we were here). The glacier is beautiful! Highly recommended campsite.

Nice campsite. Hot and clean shower. Arrived 17:30, but was no problem to get in. Normally they close the park at 5pm. 5000pp for the park and 5000ppn for the campsite.

Beautiful, quiet and sheltered night spent in campsite #5. Nice shelter, tables and chairs, rubbish bin, cooking station and water at each site. Only ten camp sites (split between two sections) so in high season might have to share but signs say max one car and three tents per site. Sites are amongst the trees so good wind protection and if it were raining the shelters would be worth their weight in gold. Paid 5,000 for night plus park entrance. For us well worth the price. Even if bathrooms are a little run down in the first section of campsites. The hike to the glacier is beautiful two (one hour uphill and one hour back down). Check out time of 10.30 / 11am

Quite a nice campground though very hard to find a good place to pitch a tent in Sitio 4. The 2hr (return) hike to the closest glacier viewing is well worth it. The view from the lake is also beautiful. Warm showers, but not the cleanest. $5000pppn.

We were afraid we arrived too late but luckily it was no problem getting in the park around 18:30. They told us to pay for camping the next day, but still nobody there the next morning, so free. Parked the campervan under the roof which was Nice because of pooring rain. No views on the mountains/glaciar though because of clouds. Great place to stay of you want to hike up to the glaciar early. (When we got back to the car, tourist buses were arrriving).

Good campground, make sure to arrive before 17:00 because the park closes. Bathrooms are outdated and dirty.

Very nice campground, hot showers between 7 and 10 in the morning and in the evening. 5000 to enter park and 5000 to camp.

Hot showers, but door to shower & toilets don't close. Ground very stony so almost impossible to put tent pegs in: had to get inventive with some rocks. Muddy but worthwhile walk up to glacier.

we didn't have to pay for park entry, low season, and at the camping nobody came either. so, free!
nice walk, beautiful lake and glacier!!!!
campground was ok: shelter, watertap. there's no fire allowed anymore! not even for cooking!!!
toilets were very run down, doors couldn't lock, but there was toilet paper and it was clean.
shower was hot, but.... door couldn't lock and you have to get dressed outside. was fine for us, because we were alone :-)

They ask for 6000pesos for 2 person. NO more hot shower (because low season) so we didn't stay! The walk to the glacier (2h) is really nice, not very hard. You can see the ice falling, so impressive!

Spacious sites in rainforest in N.P. Queulat, each with own picnic table under roof. Well maintained ablutions. Showers 19:00-9:00. CLP 10000 (2 adults, camper)

As the camping is now privately owned the price is 5000 pesos pp. children do not pay. To make sure that people go to the camping Conaf prevent RV to park overnight in the entrance of the park or on the lay-bys going to the park, they threaten to call the police. We left and found a carpark a few kms away.

Originally said we would be charged 2,000 (2 people) because we have a big truck (it's only an Iveco Daily 4x4), but eventually we paid 5,000pp. Price would be ok if you didn't have to share the pitches with other camping groups. They weren't designed for the three separate groups crammed into each pitch. Generally not impressed with this place, but it was convenient to be in the park.

Now 5000pesos per person (ouch!) + entry if you don't have a CONAF pass. We are not above sneaking in, but there was a guy in the booth managing the sites so it could have gotten awkward. Our of peak season I think you could get away with it. Good facilities. Showers are not much to look at but we're hot, so that's a treat. Hikes and miradors are lovely.

We paid 20000! Little bit overpriced but the campingplaces are nice...bring your own wood if you want to use te fireplace.

Lovely site. 14,000 pesos including park entry.

Nice campground with large spaces with lots of privacy. Room for bigger rigs in most sites. Covered area with BBQ in each site and water tap. No animals allowed in park. 4000 a person park entry. Cold showers. We camped in spot 6, we did not pay to camp, just park entrance fee.

Very nice campground in NP Quelat. Huge sites far from eachother with table/bench combination under a shelter. Water tab and BBQ (bring wood!) at every site. Bathrooms with toilets and showers (hot water didn't work). There are only 10 sites, so come early. Walking trails to the mirador of the glacier. We paid 4'000 pP for park entrance and 6'000 for camping per site.

Uneven spaces and for large RVs more ill-suited in the forest.Toilet, shower, faucet, covered barbecue areaplus park admission CIP CIP ​​6000./Night 4000.--/Person.With Conaf map of the entrance to the park is free.

large, private pitches with bbq spot, tap and bin, hot showers from 8:00-20:00, great camping

This has to be one of the nicest campgrounds we’ve seen in Chile. Each site has shelter with picnic table, grill and water tap. There are temperamental hot showers and clean toilets. The campground has two sections and the section nearest the bathrooms is better. CH$3,000 per person.
