Well lit and huge place, perfect for one night and nearby point of interests.
It's very tidy, flat and leveled as well as guarded by the friendly Police, which came along twice to check, if we are ok.

It is as described. I was at the super Walmart off of Henderson exit. that one was in a huge shopping center that had Costco, home depot, Walmart and a bunch of other stores. they had round the clock security guards driving through the parking lots and I was literally harassed out of the parking lots of home Depot and Walmart before 9:00 p.m. . as soon as they see a van or an RV parking they look for a human inside and they keep driving by every 10 minutes and they bang on the door and remind you that there is no overnight parking. and this is all before any of the stores close. they are very aggressive about maintaining their parking lots so don't spend your money there.

This small tree offered excellent shade for our picnic lunch. You can't put your car under it but it fits chairs and a table just fine. It was the only good shade since Xai Ais Campsite. The other "shaded tree" stated in Tracks4Africa maps had no leaves at all.

Passed through it around 11:30am. No shade at all but nice view. Really in a desert landscape without any trees or plants.

Beautiful landscapes and home to the last free roaming rhinos in the world. This concession is worth it especially if you can be self sufficient to wild camp in the designated spots en route to Hoanib river. When we came first time we saw black rhinos, lots of oryx springboks, giraffes and lions twice. All this animals are desert adapted and is quite amazing to see them in such landscapes. As for the desert elephants we only saw them around Palmwag Lodge area and Hoanib river area. For the person who questions why a car must pay, one should think of the work and money it costs to build and maintain roads and tracks in such isolated places. This concession's tourist income goes to maintaining and protecting the reserve as well as helping surrounding communities and the Rhino Trust project. Going to a zoo in Europe costs more than what you pay here for such a wild and secluded experience.

GPS coordinates are not completely right, but if you write ‘servicentro La Palma’ in Google Maps, you’ll find it.
Safe but busy place with a lot of trucks and traffic at night (but of course, because it’s a gas station). Unfortunately the shower was out of use, but a friendly employee showed us where we could park our car and told us we could use the toilets all night. Free!

Correct location.
Entering the town from San Gil tarmac road all the way, pass the fuel station on your l ft, enter the first square with tourist information, take the left down the steep hill, swing around to the right, then keep going straight up the hill. At top of hill take the hard right up the hill, almost doubling back, then first left and after 200m you have arrived.
Locals in houses very friendly.
When leaving either head back to San Gil or be prepared for a rough, long gravel track to Santa Isabel. 4x4, I did it in a MAN big rig, not recommended.

Very Nice place to stay and spend the night! very quiet, and nobody, only one fisherman. You are in front of the lake and the view is really nice ! Continue the gravel road and you will see this little paradise

Super endroit où passer la nuit, super calme, personne n'est venu seulement un pêcheur. Vous avez une super vue sur le lac! Continuer la route en gravier jusqu'au bout et vous verrez ce petit coin de paradis

This is the only place we could find a shower. At the campsite "Unquehue". This is the most expensive shower we are paid in all the country but after the strong heat of the day it was nessecery. 400PP with hot water. And we have been able to recharge our water tank for the van. The showers were clean. Very hard to find a shower in this city, after 2 services stations (YPF) and 5 Hostel we ended up saying OK for 400pesos. For info the night is 600pp and for the van or vehicle to sleep +1100pesos, really expensive ..

c'est le seul endroit où nous avons pu trouver une douche. Au camping "Unquehue". C'est la douche la plus chère qu'on est payés dans le tout le pays mais après la forte chaleur de la journée c'était obligatoire. 400pp avec eau chaude. Et on a pu recharger nos bidons d'eau pour le van. Les douches étaient propre. Très dure de trouver une douche dans cette ville, après 2 stations services (YPF) et 5 hostel on a fini par dire ok pour 400pesos. Pour info la nuit est à 600pp et le van ou véhicule pour dormir 1100pesos, vraiment chère..

it would be a nice area if people picked up their trash and didn't block the entire bank near the lake. be kind and courteous to others that also want to camp if there is open space you need to move your vehicle so others can pass. entire bank was blocked for 4 days. ended up leaving this area.

Spent one night, nice and quiet, feels very safe. Cops rolled by at about 10pm but didn't bother us. An RV joined us at around 11pm and settled in as well.

Easy water fill up behind the bathrooms. Said closed on the app but I came by to see and it was perfect. The spigot is on the fence somewhat hidden but you should be able to see it.

Good spot for a night of sleep but not much more. Pretty noisy with trucks going by but if you just need to sleep it works.

Lots of other vans and cars parked here overnight so tough to find a decent spot where you feel secluded and out of the way. Good for one night.

Stayed here 2 night over thanksgiving holiday. Quiet and secluded with only 1 or 2 other overnight parkers. Close to the beach, shopping, parks, etc. in Venice.

Dispersed camping spots all along this road. Spots have firering and that's it. The scenery is great, and the spots are spread out. The roads aren't the best, but you don't need a 4x4, you just need to take your time. Good cell reception (we have T-mobile).

I didn't chance a knock and went up to turkey gap pullout.

We absolutely loved this place! Setup camp on campsite #1 underneath a huge tree (Sausage and Wild Fig combined) that provides shade all day. All stands have a small wooden deck that suspend towards the water edge and hippo float up/down all day. We had a stunning sighting of a female leopard and her cub close to horseshoe. Stunning birdlife! Ablutions primitive, but clean and hot water and electricity provided. Watch out for naughty monkeys. We do agree that the price is relatively high, but we will pay it any-day again for a setting like this.

Great vegan vegetarian products.
They have a lot of seeds, spices, cheeses (imitations!) and vegan meats like the beyond burger and other meat imitations made in Colombia. I don’t think I have seen a store like this since we were in the US, and by that I mean there were 1-2 !

Ice cream, popsicles, dried fruit, powered milk, coconut oil, oats, honey, agave, beauty products, bread loafs, and LOTS of chocolate bars from Colombia,

Vegan/vegetarian friends, check it out!
