Something not right?

Description

This is a wild camping spot on a little peninsula of land that crops out into the water. During the day some of the collective buses park here but it's quiet at night. People do come to smoke weed and hang out sometimes but everyone is nice. All the locals said it was safe. You are in view from the bridge and road during the day but at night it's pretty dark so you won't stick out. 5 mins walk into guatape and it was the only piece of dry land by the water that was accesible when we were here.

We parked our Kombi here late afternoon, went to town and came back during the night. Had a good night of sleep and left early morning. Nobody asked for any money. Felt safe. Tourism buses park here during the day.

20k in Thursday, maybe it depends when is any event around + weekend. For 20k I would look for something better.

the place is not worth it. The price now 30,000COP / Night. Very dirty. We drove on.

Best - if not the only - place to camp at Guacaté. But not for free during the mid-July 2023 weekend we came: a local guy, Jimmy his name, seems to be the guardian of the spot, asking for 10.000 pesos (2,5 usd)) parking fee, or 20.000 for a whole day/night. We gave him 30k fro 2 nights tfron Saturday to Monday and he was happy. Maybe during the week u can still camp here for free.

We spent a night with our 26-foot camper. A guy made us pay 10,000 COP at the entrance. Not recommended on Saturday night because it is very noisy (guys come to drink beers all night with loud music). Big rig ok and near town

Perfect leveled spot, we confirmed all the things noticed before, full 4G if needed!

Spent 2 nights here. Good spot to visit town from. Truck traffic during the day getting gravel, but quiet at night during the week. 10min walk into town. Parking area gets a bit muddy when it rains, but no issues driving on it. Try to park out of the 'roads' so the trucks can get by.

Bon endroit pour dormir meme si environnement pas top mais c est le seul sans etre dans un parking ici. Aucun service. Calme et secur ville a 15 mn a pied.

We came here because in the city it was very difficult to overnight. It is possible but for small rigs. So we decided to give it a shot to this place, since the last entry was 3 years ago. It was around new year so the town was full! In the peninsula people come to enter their boats or jet ski. So we parked in one side close to the street to do not bother anyone. We spend 4 nights and it was perfect. some people come to park next to us during the day but at night nobody here. Very quiet and safe.

We spent a new year eve here with others travelers. But for sleep we prefer park in a street. Calm night.

Espacio verde para parquear al lado del lago. Gratis! No hay facilidades, cerca del centro. En frente (negocio con toldo rojo) ofrecen el servicio de baño y ducha. Vecinos amables!

Good, free, used to be a Camp by site. There are a couple of small roofed kiosks to hang out or put your tent. Across the street you can hire a hot shower for 2k or cold for 1k. Also restroom for 500. Best spot in town to wild camp.

There is a "no acampar" sign at the entrance. We didnt stay there, i think they dont like no more tents or motorhome there.

Perto do centro, lugar bonito e tranquilo para passar o dia e a noite. Nos banhamos no lago e tentamos pescamos. Recomendamos.

nous avons passé une bonne semaine sur cette petite péninsule . pas super propre mais gratuite et plus calme que le parking . A 5 minutes de la ville . Nous avons fait faire une à l'entreprise qui fabrique les bus locaux , super sympa. Une curiosité à voir ,un vrai travail d'artiste comme on en voit plus beaucoup.
Petite truites à pêcher ici ...

Stayed 2 nights there (tent camping). Awesome place, quiet and safe. BUT be aware that each night there is hard (really hard) rain in this region!!!! So don't camp with a beach tent 😉 Except this, this place is not bad at all.
