There is wildlife here between the flamingos and llamas. There is no indication that pets are not allowed here, but a leash is a good idea!

Apparently it depends on the occupancy of the café whether you are allowed to stay overnight or not. We were told that it was not possible because the toilets are locked at night. When I said that we had our own toilet, it was suddenly OK. When it was dark, there was a knock on the door and we were informed that it was forbidden to stay overnight here. If we moved to the lower parking lot at 5:00 a.m., we could stay there. We didn't feel like doing that and moved straight away. Very annoying!

What an EPIC campspot! Best camping spot of the lagoon. There were some rocks so we just removed and drove in, camped by the café with a dope sunset. The guy of the café will come and check on you but they can't say anything as you can camp anywhere except the shore line as per the rangers.

This Place is NOT closed. We just asked the guys at the little viewpoint coffee. They said it is no problem to stay here. The road is also not closed. A beautiful and legal place to stay overnight.

Road was only to walk, not for vehicles to park. You can stay the night on the parking 500 meter before this point.

Lovely mirador camping spot away from the lakeshore! Windy in the evenings. No issues staying here at this point in time as it is just an overflow parking lot near the restrooms and the road is very much open to drive here (: Tours parked here in the morning around 10am. Signs / barriers only limit driving beyond this point and along the perimeter of the whole lake. In the evenings and early mornings it’ll just be you, the lake, and alien sounds of flamingos!

Also, if coming from the north eastern entrance to the park, the road improves once you reach the lake’s perimeter. It’ll roughen up one last stretch to the geysers and then you hop on a decent road from there Southward.

It is clearly no longer wanted that people camp directly at the lakeshore. A pity, but of course understandable. You are not supposed to drive past the mirador parking, and there are signs and small barriers that make this clear. They are not unsurpassable, but we think the park rules should be respected to keep this marvel as it is.
We stayed at the mirador parking.

Mirador parking area overlooking Laguna Colorada. Level for camping with great views but also exposed on the hilltop. This was the best area we found for taking pictures of the laguna and flamingos.

Very windy but a gorgeous campsite. We rolled in at 7:00 and had the parking lot to ourselves. The first Land Cruiser tours arrived at approx. 9am so we had plenty of time to enjoy the lake. As the sun climbed higher in the sky, the lakes red color intensified.

Quiet but windy and cold (-5C) place to stay the night. Most tourist jeeps leave at 6pm. It was so windy de that we got into the car at 7pm already. Sunrise is worth staying at this place.

Beautiful but very crowdy and windy, I would not stay there. Much better place to camp is 8 km South in the canyon.
