Price for camping is 2300 pesos for 2 people and a camper.
They are building a new sanitary block but till now you can only use the old one. Sunrise on the river is beautiful.

A very nice park for watching wildlife: Lesser Grison and Geoffroys Cat are rare but possible. Crab-eating Fox and Pampas Fox are quite common! Plains Viscachas all over the camping area at night!

Trails are super short (except for one of 3km near the beach), and all roads except the main roads are closed between 20.00 - 07.00.

The camping is very nice, lots of places to stay, lots of shade, and at one spot a nice view towards the river and Uruguay. Weekends get very busy, better to avoid these. Bathrooms are super outdated and in terrible state (and still they ask for a propina/tip). There is free WiFi at the entrance of the camping, a small shop with vegetables, cheese, drinks etc. The restaurant is only open between 20.00-22.00 on weekends.

Price for the park is now 1820 p.p. for foreigners, a one time fee. The camping is 900 p.p.p.n.

Enjoy! @RobJansenphotography

Pasamos dos noches en el camping. Precio actualizado 400 pp para entrada al parque y pagamos 750 por noche (2 personas + casilla rodante).
El parque merece la pena visitarlo y lo mejor es hacer noche. Camping poco cuidado y con baños sucios ( agua caliente a veces). El lugar es agradable y rodeado de naturaleza y animales autóctonos.

Great camping place. Big rigs, cars, tents. They have store and restaurant. Bathrooms, warm showers and place for wash dishes. Payment its aditional to Park entrance. Standard but nice, close to the Uruguay river&beaches. Quiet and clean (still low season)

Report Check-In

nice campground in the parc but the bathrooms and showers are the worst of all campgrounds we've seen in all of cono sur (really not exaggerating). The owner told us they try to privatize the campground which is the reason why they didn't renovate it.
20 minute-Walk to the beach

You have to go to this campsite or you have to leave the national park. We left.
This campsite is another sad example for the “Argentinian” stile overpriced campsites.

Actual price:
200 pp
Motorhome 400
+ park entrance fee 400 pp

Entrance fee to the park 300ar$ pp. 600 for 2 adults and camper van. Expensive but worth it. Great wildlife, carybara, wild pampa rabbits, cardinal birds, green parrots etc.. Good wifi next to restaurants. Electricity at some site. Fairly quiet when we were there. Baños and duchas as usual old but cleanish with very hot water

Our plan was to stay here for the night. After taking a look at the camp site we decided otherwise. Facilities are basic like in many sites. However, for Motorhomes this not really ideal. What we did not like either is that there is no view of the river and quite a few school classes had a trip into the park and camping there, too. Not the type of place we like.

Very nice park with a restaurant and a shop nearby but quite expensive. 2000 for entry and camping with an RV (2 persons) for two nights.

Entry fee 300 pP. Camping 150 pP 150 p for Camping Car.
Was ok but expensive. Staff very friendly. Wi-Fi good near sandwicheria.

Report Check-In

It's quite expensive but nice at week days. Good campsite with all you need including very good wifi that reaches some camping spots. Camping 150 pp and 90 for a tent, 150 for casa rodante and 200 for mobilhome. Not sure where they put the difference between the latter two. Park entrance is getting expensive for foreigners: 300 pp. however the tame animals are a real plus to the beautiful landscapes.

looks nice, but 120 pes. per person, plus 150 pes. for a motorhome per day is to much. so we drove further.

Park entry is 250ARS now. We left, so no idea about the Campground.

Nice campground with grass and trees within the national park, with a panoramic point over the Uruguay River. There are toilets, showers, and a shop/bar. No internet, no electricity. We arrived late on a Christmas Eve (after 7PM), the park was open but the camp managers were gone and they did not show up next morning. The camp was full, and some neighbors were in party mood at night. Capivaras were on the road at sunset, and they don't mind the cars, so drive carefully. Vizcachas roam the place at night, so don't leave food or garbage outside.

Still the same. Horrible camping, horrible staff. Pity it is the only place in the park where you can stay overnight. We didnt so they lost a client.

Park entry fee is now AP120 per person for overseas visitors. Campground now charging AP80 per person and AP80 for our camper. The campground has some bad wash outs following recent heavy rain and many camp spaces you cannot get to. Wifi also was not working. Staff were rude and unhelpful so we left.

- entrance to the park is about 7USD per person and camping is about 5USD per person @ dolar green rate
-We really enjoyed the park. There really isn't much to see, apart from palm trees, capybaras and vizcachas. But since we never saw a capybara before, we were happy to see dozens of them roaming around the park roads. Plus if you camp here, wait until dusk when vizcachas emerge from their vizacherias and start mowing the grass in the campground. To top it off, the sunrise over Rio Uruguay is pretty amazing and can be viewed directly from the campground.
- Surprisingly decent wifi reaches some of the sites, rustical hot showers and a restaurant is provided. Water is not potable.
