Description

One of the nicest campgrounds we've had. CONAF pass accepted, the road here is rocky from Chile Chico and high clearance needed in bad conditions, but it was sunny with no wind while we were here. In March, we had the place to ourselves, but there is 7 sites, each with cover, table, water, fire pit (and free pre-split wood), and views of the lake. don't miss the flamingos 10k from the entrance and the hike to Valle Lunar nearby. 5000p/P for camping.

Very nice ranger at the entrance. He explained we had to make a reservation before coming to a National Park (this is in all Chile now due to covid). But he let us stay and did the registration on the computer for us. We only stayed 1 night because we had a boat to catch the next day. We paid 8400 each for entering the national park and 3000 each for camping. Camping nothing special, no view, only trees with a lot of caterpillars! No running water on site, toilet/shower building looked black from all the caterpillars so didn't use it. We liked the free parking at Valle lunar a lot more!

Report Check-In

Camping not permitted during pandemic. Park ranger was quite rude, he said the park closed at 3 pm when the conaf website clearly stated 4pm. There was a big sign at the entrance saying that the el silencio campsite was open as well, but he said it wasn’t and we couldn’t camp?!? Alot of misinformation and the ranger didn’t even bother to explain why all these “new” rules were not updated on the site or signboard and just kept repeating we had to exit by 3 pm. Be careful of breaking this rules because overlanders who parked overnight at the rangers carpark had all their tires slashed, which is crazy to us

In our opinion 8000 clp pp are too much just to visit the lake for some hours. We turned back!!!

Update november 2019: the park is now managed by Conaf and has merged into one park, parque Patagonia (instead of the previous three separate parks). the entrance fee is 8000 for a foreigner and 6000 per person for camping. Prices stay the same for more days: for example we hiked for 4 days, price stays at 8000 + 6000 = 14.000 per person. The x-753 (road to the park) is totally fine for 2wd when the weather is good (2 tiny river crossings, ok gravel road, no inclines that are to steep). If you decide to camp at silencio campground, I don't know if this is the same in high season, you get one of the 7 private sitios. Each sitio has place for a car (big rig), has a shelter with a picnic table and a water tap. All in the forest thus windproof. All the sitios share the same Banos (1 for men, 1 for women; with each a cold shower). You are not allowed to stay overnight in your car at the entrance of the park if you arrive during opening hours. You'll have to pay for the camping if you don't leave the same day. Can really recommend the hike up to the refugio Valle hermosa and the hike of the glacier starting there

a little expensive since the shower is cold and without electricity. But clean and really good wind protection. BBQ. And the amazing park us totally worth it!

Really beautiful park! We loved it. But this campground wasn't impressive. We were the only campers and there was no running water and the bathrooms needed to be taken care of... I assume it's better maintained in high season. We preferred the wild spot on the river near the Cuevas Los Manor trailhead.

Beautiful campsite in the forest by the lake. There are about 10 areas each with a pretty large shelter (you could potentially fit a small tent underneath), table and benches, a barbeque (bring your own carbon), a bin (although you should take your rubbish out of the park) and a water tap. Fantastic! The areas can get windy but the campsites are well protected as there are lots of trees. We slept in our roof top tent and it was perfectly fine. The park is stunning and we were surprised that it doesn't get too many visitors. Access road to the park is totally fine (no river crossings, a couple tiny streams), but the last couple of kilometers are a bit bumpy so just take it slow. Highly recommended!

A very well-kept conaf camp ground embedded in beautiful green mounten landscape beside a blue lake. We also hiked there 4 days where we used a small hut with oven behind lago verde for free.
Admission 3000/p + 10000 for campside usage.

We stayed here for 2 nights. We were allowed to stay at the camping (close to the bridge) with our overlander for free (without using the campsite facilitities).
We made a day hike to La Gloria. Ik took us 6 hours walking (return) with many river crossings. Beautiful!

incredible little park. as always Conaf does a great job keeping a clean campsite, stocked wood for fires, and study quinchos. stay a few days and make sure you drive the circuit... you will need a real 4x4 and probably a snorkel if the rivers are up.

Not an easy access road (2hrs over rocky gravel dirt road) but worth it. Beautiful campsite, very remote, good shelters for cooking and campfire. Very friendly ranger. Couple of walking trails can be done directly from campsite (we hiked to Lago Verde). Parc will close for winter in May. Suppose best to visit in Summer, be prepared for mosquitos. We saw flamengos in a small lake next to the access road, ~8kms before entry of the park. Park entry 3000$ pp and $10.000 for the camping.
