Bought a garrafón and 10 gallons of water. They have a drive-through and the place where the water is filtered and the bottles are filled, looks neat and clean. Paid BZD 20 for plastic bottle and two fillings.

Great place to pitch a tent. It's 160 pesos/night/person with wifi, clean toilets, hot shower, pool, hammocks, friendly staff, beautiful garden.

It's a bit more expensive than Mayabell (150 pesos/night/person), but we didn't feel welcomed there.
Michol is another camping close by, based on other iOverlander comments it's 40 pesos/night/person. We checked the place but toilets were dirty and the place looked a bit run down. Definitly an option when you're on a low budget.

We were here just after Christmas and it was packed. Lots of tents and all cabanas were occupied. There was some weed smoke and alcohol but quiet at night. The beach is full of naked people which we didn't knew before. We didn't mind but the men like to parade up and down the beach to show what they have (or don't have) to offer.

When we wanted to leave in the morning at 9am (had to leave before 11am the lady told us) we were blocked by cars of other guests. We were in the corner where they told us to park but couldn't leave. When we asked them how we could leave they told us to wake up the owners of the cars. We were trapped and eventually found the owners of the cars and could leave when they moved their cars.

We don't recommend other staying here. VERY rude owners.

Free camp but visitors are encouraged to make a donation. Pretty grassy area near river. Pet friendly but no amenities apart from a dump point.

As described by previous visitors, great place for dispersed camping and easy access for all kinds and sizes of rigs. Lots of traffic and road noise in early evening, but tapers off later. Verizon cell service is 2 bars 5G.
There are several roads leading off the highway near here, so probably a number of other options for camping besides this specific site. Got here just at dark so didn’t explore.

It is as described but did not feel right to us. Residents were definitely disturbed at seeing us parked there. Also, the street angles noticeable so that we would have to install blocks to level.
We did not stay.

UPDATE.
There is now only 30km of dirt road. The route is breathtakingly stunning.
I did it in a 10 tonne MAN 4x4 big rig. Narrow track in places, very tricky if a truck comes the other way, oh, and Colombian car drives who cannot reverse... pathetic to watch, but funny.
No delays, landslides are always a risk, but this is The Andes.
if you have a decent vehicle, do it.

We camped here but unfortunately the ablution is not in good shape. It is invaded by ants. In the evening and morning there was no water and nobody to turn to who could possibly solve the problem. So also no shower and even toilets couldn’t be flushed. Area is beautiful but as campsite it fails. It was quiet but it was a weekday. We paid mtz 300 pppn. Not the first choice if you want to camp and certainly not for more then a day.

The saddle is cleaned only from west side! I drove all the way up to this point just to find out way down is full of snow and not cleaned.

The views are nice though, but it really wasted a few hours to make a detour back.

Nice campsite, the foundations of a former house can be seen. Large space for a few trucks. Quiet. Great view. In January a bit windy. Several fire pits are already set up.

The rooms are very basic but a fair deal. We paid 20‘000 UGS for the room. Staff is very friendly and they have courtyard where we parked our bicycles. It would probably be possible to park a car behind the gates.
The food is very good and also fairly cheap.

This is a mostly level campground that's easily accessible with 2WD vans that over looks the other two Hawk Canyon wild camping spots, that gives amazing views in all directions. And peaceful isolation while still being within hiking distance of The Slot and Hawk Canyon.

It's roughly two thirds the way to the way up the hill. Somebody took the time to mark a nice boundary around the camp spot with rocks. The site is probably big enough for a 2-3 maybe 4 Sprinter sized caravan.

I only had two 4X4 vehicles pass by during the two days I was there. It wasn't windy at all while I was here, but I could imagine it becoming windy, but maybe not.

Cell service through Google Fi (T-Mobile + US Cellular) was intermittent. I had decent LTE during the day and nothing all night. I'm sure a booster would work wonders as the camp ground nearby reported.

I highly recommend this spot if you want good vistas but don't have the 4WD probably needed to confidently go down into Hawks Canyon.

Everybody is welcome in this unique spiritual location.
The access road is pretty rough, though.

we arrived here at 4:30PM knowing we could stay the night to catch a boat the next morning. gates close at 5PM. night guard came by, we gave him 50pesos. next morning the day guard came and wanted to collect as well. when I told him we already paid he got a little mad and mentioned we should've paid him instead. besides this short and strange situation, it's a nice spot with plenty of shade, calm and safe at night. small restaurants outside the lot and a little Bodega up the street from where you come in...

Small hostel with options to camp in either tent or van. The views are amazing and it’s very quiet at night. At 3500 meters the temps are fresh but not ridiculous,
The owners of the place are very friendly and accommodating, we pitched our tent across the road in the paddock (less wind, better views) and were able to use their bathrooms in the restaurant.
We paid 15,000 for the 2 of us, our motos were parked in their car park… the serenity and vistas are second to none, probably one of the nicer places to wake up in!

Yet again this friendly mechanic saved the day. I had the oil in my 4runner changed in Coyhaique, luckily i saw a suspicious drip as I got back into it from a picture stop. The oil filter had a leak and had already lost a liter of oil. I double backed here and we jury rigged a new seal ring to get me back to Manihuales. I think he mostly works on trucks but super friendly and helpful guy!!!

Great wal mart to park at overnight, I opted for the side of the lot nearest the auto center, by the storm water drainage pond.

About a dozen RVs and Vans scattered throughout lot, including two near the receiving area which IS posted (to enable semis to maneuver, folks).

Just a friendly reminder to not park near receiving areas and docks- if the loud noise at all hours doesn’t keep you away, know that this is the type of activity that causes wal mart management to decide to post their entire lots.

As a recap - great and legal wal mart to park at, but never park near the receiving area of this or any wal mart or place of business as a general rule.
