Description

Price 12/2019: 560 ARS pp for 3 days/3 nights. (park entrance, then camping is free)
=======
We found Camp Rio Pipo to be the most scenic. There are a number of free campgrounds with toilets and fire pits throughout the park. They are marked on the park map, of course. Free, after paying AR560 per person for the park entry.

The road to the campsite is in excellent condition now. It's dirt road, still, but very well maintained. Overlooking snowy mountaintops. Two porta potties, clean enough, a stream from the river, ample parking space and space to put up your tent. There was even a decent Claro signal.

Beautiful spot near the river, clean toilets. Entrance to Tierra del Fuego Park is 12000arp/pp and lasts 48 hours so basicly you can stay 3 days (2 nights).

WARNING: Foxes have become habituated to campers and will steal anything that smells interesting from your tent vestibule, even right next to you while you are sleeping. they ran off with our food bag which I was sleeping right next to (we are cyclists) and also dragged out our sitting pad and shoes from our vestibule while we were sleeping. We could see the little bite marks on the shoes and pad. Food bag is most likely gone forever...

beautiful. road in the campsite very washed out. not suitable for 2wd/ bigger rigs. but you can stand nearby.

Report Check-In

Currently the sites are closed but you can park along the road and camp. No amenities at all.

Report Check-In

Quiet rainy night from Wednesday to Thursday. Parking spots are good. May fit big rigs if you park along, instead of 90° to the road. Chemical toilets available. If you enter the park after 4pm, the guard will let you in without payment. You can stay one night for free. If you want to stay longer, you should check in the next day. Here at this specific spot we got Claro signal, but not 3G. Only H+.

stayed 3 nights. Great campsite, the camp spots are ok, some flat on stones, some not so flat on soil, with shade/sun options. When we were there, this camp site had very little wind, especially compared to the other. Toilet very basic but it was regularly cleaned and filled up with toilet paper. Good signal with Movistar.
Safe, quiet at night, little other vehicles. Most scenic views all around, it’s the most amazing we stayed in Argentina. Gorgeous. Wild horses, fox and curious birds spotted around the camper.

Great place - safe and clean with 3G

So, please keep it safe and clean

Thx

várias vagas de estacionamento ao longo do rio pipo. A estrada de terra solta muito pó, incomoda quando passa carros.
Domingo estava lotado, quase não havia vagas, mas o incomodo maior eram os carros passando e levantando pó.
na segunda o lugar ficou vazio e foi incrível. o Bonito aqui não é muito onde você estaciona, pois não é tão colado no Rio, mas o lugar é incrível. caminhar ao longo de todo o rio e apreciar a paisagem é uma experiência fantástica.
há banheiros químicos. sem água, luz e lixeiras (por conta de animais).

nice place near the river, agrest camping with quimic toilets.

Report Check-In

Despite the confusion about the correct location this campground still exists. Rangers will explain to you all available campgrounds at the entrance.
However, currently there are some roadworks and creation of new parking spaces ongoing. Therefore, the small access road to get to the nicer spots, near the river, was closed for traffic. Due to this only two or three spots on grass remain, but they are at the beginning of the campground far away from the river, but close to the dusty and quite busy road.

The site in the app is at the wrong location (maybe an old campsite location which is now a day use). The real site, Rio pipo camping agreste, is on the right side of the ruta 3 (along the rail train) with a lovely river, toilet... Nice spot, we were alone, more remote and quieter than laguna verde, no bus is going or passing by this site.

Uno-home. Área de camping mais movimentada. Perto do Rio Pipo, uma faixa estreita para estacionar, terreno não muito plano, com bastante buracos nos caminhos dos carros. Única área de camping do parque com sinal de celular, mas segundo o guarda do parque, somente a operadora Movistar que pega. Claro e Personal não pegam. Tem churrasqueiras de tijolos espalhados. Cuidados com os ratinhos e outros roedores, além de passarinhos que pegam as comidas e se ficar de bobeira podem até adentrar no carro. Um que parecia esquilo pulou e subiu no teto do carro para fuçar o nosso bagageiro.

Best place around! Still open. With our LC 79 we had no problems, to drive in...ü

The place is not closed !
We spend our nights in park there because we felt completely alone, along the river and mountains.

This camping is still open, this is one of the 3 camping location in the park with Puerto Guaraní and laguna verde.

The camp site looks nice but not w good place for campervans. The other camp site in the park is much better for that.

I'm not sure its allowed to camp here any more; we were told at the park entrance that the only two options are down towards the port, and right through the park to Laguna Verde (the nicer of the 2 sites by far!)

nice campsite the entrance fee is now 560 PPS into the national park chemical toilets which where clean water from stream and full service on mobile movistar all in all a nice spot to camp

Nice spot shortly before Park Gate. Turn right immediately before the new bridge across Rio Pipo. Beautiful view of the mountains, ground can be muddy. No traffic at night, since only park visitors pass by. Some wind protection by trees

Don’t drink and drive here-my bf got a alcohol test at the park entrance at 10:30 PM.

Great place if you come early (with a vehicle). There are tens of places, but most are rendered inaccessible to vehicles and therefore only available to hikers and bikers.

The spot closest to the river (was it BBQ 24?) offered wind protection for our roof tent.

The entrance fee for the park entitles you to two nights without further costs.

This is about the only place in the park that has Claro GSM reception.

One of the most beautiful spots we have camped on our entire trip. We parked our camper right next to the river. Wild horses milled around, and we had the best views of the mountains. Chemical Toilets were clean and not smelly at all. Hike to small waterfall is more like a walk, flat and takes no time at all. 3G claro service in the campground.

Camping Rio Pipo, super especial, localizado dentro do Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego. Tem um visual incrível para o Rio e para as cordilheiras aínda cobertas de neve. Tivemos a felicidade de ver e sentir um pouco de neve caindo, apesar de estarmos na primavera. O frio e o vento gelado são intensos. Para o acesso ao Parque Nacional pagamos 420 ARS por pessoa, permitindo-nos ficar três dias e duas pernoites.

4runner/ rooftent No park fees at this time of year. best spots for vehicles is if you continue right around to the right, no posts blocking you and level enough areas. some trees for wind protection but still when we were here. lovely and quiet! ranger came in the morning and apparently we should have told them at the gate we were camping and got a free permit.

Nice place free when you've pay the park.
OK for big rig but take care to the tree.
It's very bumpy but we found a place for our truck.
Wild horses and nice river.
Clean toilet.

Great campsite, although a challenge to find a level spot, we drove to the end of the road, turned right and found a reasonably level spot 2 pitch on the right. Fairly busy but quiet. Flushing Toilets clean with paper and towels. Good Claro 4G reception.

Wonderful campground at the end of the world. Good starting point for hiking tours.

we paid only the park entrance fee of 350 per person. nice hikes to be done in the park and allows to go to the end of national road 3 where a nice sign is to show that you have reached the end of the road in south america. the park entrance fee allows for 3 days and 2 nights but we stayed one more night and the ranger came to control us on the last morning. A small talk with them and they did not fine us for the overstay. the spot is missing picnic tables and don't forget to bring your own fire wood from outside the park as you are not allowed to pick any wood in the park.

The next morning there was tent pegs ripped out and a machete on the grass 7m from our tent!
