Posto 24h com estacionamento gigantesco, fechado e pago, mas o preço é ótimo e justificado pela segurança oferecida. Tem restaurante, banheiros e chuveiro. Sem estrutura específica para motorhomes, como tomadas e ponto de água.

Paraguay --> Argentina. I had a super easy crossing with my motorcycle there. You can forget the old buildings on the Paraguay side. They intelligently placed them all in one building on the Argentinian side. Jump the car que and park your motorbike right where the guys are inspecting the cars crossing. There are even dedicated Moto parking spot in the shade. Super cool!

Stamped out of Paraguay at one window. Into Argentina in the next. Handed in the TIP at a little camper and then new Argentina TIP in the air-conditioned office with a super nice younger guy with glasses that even spoke English. 100% great experience. Why can't all crossings be this simple?

Pro-tip:
Be a polite, respect their laws (like no food), and above all, be courteous gringo ambassador, and they will be courteous as well.

UPDATE.
Going to cross again tomorrow and will update if anything has changed.

On a Sunday night I was hard pressed to get a "site." I ended up parking in the grass. Looks like there may be some people staying for a while and/or just leaving their camper to save their spot. So far pretty quiet but on a weekend I would expect it gets a little unpredictable.

Newer upscale RV park, I was there during the off season on a Sunday and I was able to get a spot for $65/night. Very large pool area, onsite facilities, Ok restaurant, play area for kids and a swim up bar in the pool.

Nice hotel like others wrote, but the noice from the street is enormously if your room is next to the street. It is located in a very busy area.

Stopped here for a coffee break - nice view, very quiet. There were two of us resting here so it’s a known spot.

Still a surprisingly nice spot relatively close to the highway (2-3 km). Still some white noise from the highway but not disturbing at all. We had a perfectly quiet day and night here, saw no one here.

Last part requires 4wd due to soft sand. We didn't drive all the way to the lake but camped a couple hundred meters before in the shade of palm trees, of which there are plenty.

Just wanted to update that this spot is actually open April 1st - October 31st. I decided to check it out even though other reports said it it was closed til May, and it’s totally open! Huge area with lots of other vans, RV’s, trucks and a couple tents. I have 3 bars LTE, which is way better than a lot of places I’ve stayed! Super windy, so it’s not a place to hang out and have a campfire or anything, but very nice for an overnight and feels safe.

Nice breakfast/lunch place close to the airport, but a little of the main road. A beautiful, quiet, shady terrace under trees with loads of plants. Good free wifi. Quiches, sandwiches, ice cream, eggs/bacon/beans etc. Good coffee too! Lovely stop.

Stephan is the friendliest and most helpful mechanic. As we had sludge in our expansion tank (and overheated more than normally) we were really afraid and came to him for a professional opinion. He took his time for us, even his phone rang couple of times and it seemed he had a lot to do. He was fortunately able to tell us that it wasn't oil. He gave us helpful tips for our radiator conversion and also for other issues. He also gave us his number in case we got into trouble. A few weeks later we were in Swakopmund with a broken torsion bar and were completely lost, as it was impossible for us to get a spare part. Here too, Stephan pulled out all the stops and helped us looking for the spare part in Windhoek. Simply a great address, so helpful, calm and always ready to help and assist you. THANK YOU STEPHAN :)

We spent the night here, a fantastic and mystical place. Don’t drive too close to the shipwreck or your car ends up as a new tourist attraction on iOverlander, we got stuck but luckily the tide was going back

A hidden gem. Great communal kitchen with log fireplace, best showers in months. Big truck, motorbike, mountain bike and pet friendly. Good well appointed rooms too. Sue and Rory extremely welcoming and friendly.

Camped near this spot. Great spot, nobody around. nice sunset and sunrise. However we were overwhelmed by the great amount of mosquitos. Other than that: great wildcampingspot.

Small nature reserve off the main road. Beautiful trees, no facilities at all. Great place to camp, deer and birdsong in the morning.

Convenient hotel to spend your first night in the country off the ferry. Police will want an hotel address at the customs before stamp you in. So because I had no internet they booked me this hotel, perhaps there are cheaper alternatives.
Hotel is clean, hot water, slow WiFi and walking distance to the city centre.
I paid 4000DZD which is 16€ with the current exchange on the street.
There is an closed parking I think but brought the bike in my room (ground floor)
