Nice beach, good spot to land for a night or two. $300 pesos. No services but a funky toilet complete with 4” scorpion in the non functional sink . Very windy which may or may not be the norm.

It's November and the glacier road is only plowed maybe a kilometer further past this spot. One could reasonably camp there, too, but why, when you have this perfect, awesome place right here?

Pretty, flat enough, great view, overlooks a frozen lake. Stoked to spend a night here.

Cool camping in the hotel: pool, toilets, hot shower…400m from ruins entrance. Little bit expensive: 400$M/vehicule with showers, water and toilets. 100$M more for hook up.

chill and safe. in the morning there are a few more people walking around going to the park and I think students going to the school nearby. a nice place.

The upper lot is a nice clean and quiet parking area for cars, RVs, and semis with clean bathrooms, roving security patrols, plenty of garbage cans, some vending machines, picnic tables, grass area to walk pets, small fenced in off-leash dog area, and pet waste bags. Gas station is just around the corner. Allows 12-hour stay. Road noise from I-5 was minimal.

We spend here two really lovely nights at the campground. There is a pool, a restaurant and clean toilets with cold showers (they clean every mornig!). The staff is very friendly and will help you with every think you need. They have music in the evening close to the campground. You better go dancing or use some earplugs until midnight. We really recomend birdwhatching here with Omar. It was amacing!!! Best place to be after crossing the border from Senegal to Gambia. We payed 500 Dalasi per night and 1200 for a boad trip (for 2 persons).

Must stay!!! We were incredibly exhausted after moving too fast for a few months, and decided to stop by this lodge. The place is fantastic with big kitchen and living room, beautiful balcony with the ocean in the horizon and palm trees in front of you, three bedrooms (with mosquito net and fan) and two bathrooms. Hot functional shower, microwave, big fridge, braai, and all those small luxuries. Even better there's house keeping doing your dishes, cleaning and making the beds. The owners Greg and Gwen will bend over backwards to make sure you are enjoying your stay. They have a diveshop as well, and you'll get 10% off if you are staying in their lodge.

Outside holiday season it's 900 mets pppn, totally worth it! Diving prices are are way better than in Tofo. We stayed 8 nights and were sad to leave!

Thanks Greg and Gwen, hope to be back!

Amazing flat grassy spot with ocean view on top of a dune. Viewpoint a minute walk up a dune. You can walk to the beach and swim (be aware of the undercurrent). We found it by accident when driving to the very end of the sandy road. 4×4 needed, and no big rigs. It's narrow. Keep driving down the road visible on Ioverlander until you reach the ocean.

Very nice greens section as well as nice bread! Well stocked, prices are rather high except for greens and bread. Definitely better than Savemor Spar down the road.

Really big mosque. Only four pillars hold the dome. Tour is free.

This place looks decent - trash cans, washrooms (didn’t check them out though), picnic tables. However, we pulled in in the evening and cats very quickly descended on us looking for food. Wasn’t our cup of tea and we left first thing in the morning. There are lots of spots and we were the only ones there though. Road noise isn’t too noticeable overnight.

We slept two nights here and it was super quiet! We used the free WiFi “Pais Digital”, which although slow, was sufficient for WhatsApp (works better when fewer people are connected to the same time). Good water in the square, and super calm at night.

Dormimos duas noites aqui e estava super quieto! Usamos o WiFi gratuito “Pais Digital”, que, embora lento, era suficiente para o WhatsApp (funciona melhor quando menos pessoas estão conectadas ao mesmo tempo). Boa água na praça e super tranquila à noite.

We made our way from El Peñon, first around the Volcano Carachi and Laguna Carachi Pampa, and arriving at Piedra Pomez camp in the early afternoon. Take care, because at this time the sun gets very hot, and the white stones reflect the sun's rays even more, so it is really hot!
From the Piedra Pomez we return straight to El Penon, but we find this path worse and sandy.

Fizemos o caminho saindo de El Peñon, dando a volta primeiro pelo vulcão Carachi e Laguna Carachi Pampa, e chegando no Campo de Piedra Pomez no início da tarde. Se cuide, pois nesse horário o sol fica muito quente, e as pedras brancas refletem ainda mais os raios solares, então fica realmente muito calor! Do Campo de Piedra Pomez voltamos direto para El Penon, mas achamos esse caminho pior e mais arenoso.

Great place ! We got there around 6 and didn’t see anyway on our way up.

local police are getting annoyed by travelers here, cane up to us and another vehicle. consider this place closed. there is a camp ground across the river for only $5

No amenities but the park is very quiet and peaceful if you want to get away from busy and noisy parking lots.

Hermoso lugar, lugar que todo cicloviajero busca alejado de la ruta y bien escondido con vista del lago. 😉

Enter the campground on the very first left before the gate. 6 spots with garbage cans and a table at each. fairly level spots. We were the only ones camped there for the night. All of the bathrooms in the park were locked with gates over the doors however we were able to use the golf course bathroom in the morning. The staff were very kind. Clean spot. Highway traffic is not overwhelming. Felt safe.

One of the most beautiful drives of our trip so definitely worth it for us! (although I cannot speak for other seasons)

Didn’t stay here but a bunch of campers were here (was staying at another Walmart already). Huge parking lot and nice area.
