Something not right?

Description

To get there: Take SECOND gravel road to your right after the bridge (coming from the pier/ferry).

We needed to find a place by the ferry and found this area near town but away from houses and people. Next to river with views out to bay. Free. Fire pits and a few picnic tables nearby.

Latest Check-Ins

Great spot. To get here, take SECOND gravel road after the bridge (coming from the town/pier). Quiet during the week, clean river, flat grassy areas and excellent Claro 4G reception if you want to get a few things done online. Can highly recommend.

Peaceful and great spot to stay for single night before boarding the ferry to Caleta Gonzalo. It's a dirt road with managble puddles for our 2WD van. Yes, there were a few barking dogs when we arrived however, they quieten down later in the night.

good place to stay which is very quite and rekatively private. you can hire horses from the guy near the road for $25,000 pesos for 4 hours.

Beautiful levels sites near the river. A lot of space with table and firepit.

Tried to check this spot out but the road to the river was blocked by cones and piles of wood.

Update: after talking to someone else it seems the road that maps.me was routing us down was a private road— the actual road to the site is the next one over that’s NOT blocked.

nice place close by the river to enjoy the view. quiet area to spend a good night.

Beautiful place to camp before/after taking the ferry. Several other campers in tents and rigs along the river but we found a place to ourselves near the end. Recommended.

Amazing spot with a beautiful view of the ocean and mountains. I'm not sure but on clear days you can probably see the volcano. It has lots of peaceful tourist life.

Nice spot for a night near the river with view on volcano. A large strip of flat grass with trees to be hidden from the road. Some trashes. When you are driving on the carretera to the South, you go out the city, just after the bridge 2nd on your right. We drove around Hornopiren, it was the best place to stay with our camper van. We drove by the entrance park, nowhere to park and be hidden from the road.

Found a really nice and clean spot next to the river, almost at the end. A lot of trash indeed. Some people/cars passed by bit did not mind. Also had a surprise visit of a Friendly dog who almost jumped into the bed! Best option in low season when you do not have to wait in line for the ferry.

Quiet spot on the side of the river. Flat and would be good for tent camping. Easy access 50 meters after the bridge. We didn't see another car out there, relaxing spot.

Nice spot by the river, but it seems to be a dumping ground for household trash in some areas. We took what we could from around our camp but there is still a lot to clean up

beutiful place by the river
great place to spend the night waiting for the ferry .
beutiful view sorrunded by volcanos

nice place, just out of town. quiet!! there is some garbage, but if you set camp the right way you won't see it.... nice river and no-one else around :-)
beautiful view over the bay

Convenient spot for a night-stop if you are coming to or from the ferry. Busy with locals camping & fishing but we found a space. It's mostly overlooked bu houses on the other side of the river, but no problem with that. Some dogs barking during the night. No facilities. Free.

Stayed here a night on the way south, whilst waiting the 9am ferry. Entrance is at the northern end, at the bridge. Camping on the eastern shore of the river. A fine spot for a short stay. No problems.

We stopped here after a late night ferry going north, only issue was barking dogs through the night.

Decent spot. But 5 or so cars drove by after dark (sat night) and police drove by in the morning. They didn't tell us to leave. We didn't see any picnic tables, but didn't search for them.

Clear area next to river, view of the bay, clean and fire pits around.
