Spent the night tucked up against the front deck as directed by nice guard. No pets allowed on trail, but fine down around here. Used bathrooms near cafe during business hours. Didn’t ask for water. Only disturbance was noisy geese all around. Free.

Nous sommes monté, car la route est fermée pour travaux donc les bus qui emmènent au télécabine ne fonctionne pas et donc le télécabine a été fermé. L’endroit est très calme, le personnel très sympa. On a pu utiliser les toilettes jour et nuit.

You can park just outside the entrance. Lovely and quiet, with ruins in background. You can use the park bathrooms sitting business hours. Staff at cafe wouldn't share wifi password, but maybe you can convince them...

The people are still friendly, and let camp at the parking place.

Report Check-In

We arrived about 18:00 and the nice guard opened for us the gate and a toilet. The place itself is ok, but the road to here is so bumpy and slow driving that we regret to not have taken the cable car. The first hour we had the ruin for our own, but there are not so much visitors or stones to see that it is worth to drive to road for this advantage.

We could camp between the funicular and the entrance to the official parking lot.There is a security guard all night. He opened up the toilets for us and we could use all night. In the morning before 8 AM you must move to the parking lot. free!

Still a good option. Driving slow with no rush 1.30 hours from Tingo Nuevo. A bit bumpy road but not a problem. Friendly staff at the Parking. Camped on our RTT, were 1 full hour on our own at the site since it opens at 8 and first cable car at 8:30.

They let us camp in the official parking lot in our rooftop tent. The guard left one toilet open for us during the night. Quiet and beautiful view, free.

No camping in the 'official' lot, but directly before it (the grass patch that sits under the interpretation Centre, which is immediately before the entrance... I think they use it for horses during the day?) was fine - the security guard directed us to the spot. Free. Toilets were locked at night, but the guard told us to just ask if we wanted to use them. Great views of the ruins where we parked.

Dos noches aquí. muy tranquilo. seguro. aparcamos junto al centro de interpretación hay baños. el camino para llegar es una sola mano de cornisa y grava muy complicado durante 30km mucha atención existen tramos de 1 o 2 km que no pasan dos vehículos

No dogs, I mean mascotas allowed on the trail! But street dogs, horses (and their shit all over the trail), cats and lamas are allowed...I guess the street dogs are the guards, horses are transportation, cats are the rodent patrol and lamas are lawn maintenance so if you are creative with what you call your dog you might be allowed to bring him with you!

It is NOT allowed to camp there anymore. Instead we stayed 100m back down the road, at the last house(when you driving up) at the left side. The owner of this wooden-house, a nice women, let us stay infront of the house, right next to the street. We felt safe there, cause nobody is around. The ruins are really beautifull and well worth to go! The road up there after Nuevo Tingo can get really muddy and it takes it time.

Looks like your not allowed to stay here anymore. got there late and they sad we couldnt stay because they have a New order from the ministerio that stays that on archeological sides, no cars are allowed to stay overnight. the sent us to the first house on the way down where we could stay on the street in front of the house. Very nice woman there and they are busy preparing a big flat place below. Right now its too muddy to stay there but they gonna put some gravel.

They are building a cable car (tram) from Tingo Nuevo to the visitor center on top. We spent two nights in the parking lot of the visitor center, very quiet. Toilets were open all night! Once the cable car is in operation things will be different up there, go now!

Nice parking lot , flat on the left side after the entrance . Very quiet and safe.
Guards stay there all night. The 37 km track to go there is very scenic . Take your time....

You can park and camp here in the parking lot of Kuelup Ruins. Right at the trailhead to the ruins, beautiful views. The visitor center nearby has restrooms but they are locked at night from 5pm until 8am. Price was free.

Free to camp. They have a large lot at the visitors center. We choose to camp out on a grass patch just before the final turn into the visitors center parking lot with a great view of the ruins. Restrooms close at 5pm. 15 soles per adult to enter site. During the day the main lot gets busy with tours.

The parking area at Kuelap was being rebuilt while were there so we had to park on uneven dug up ground. There were no toilets. Once visitor centre and parking lot is finished this will be an excellent place to stay.
