Description

Plenty of organized campsites along the southern shore here. If you go further west there are free sites. We were the only ones camping here on a weeknight (March 7th, 2012). We took a pleasant spot between a stream and the shore and had ourselves a campfire. Overnight low dipped under 40F; summer seems all but over. AR$40 per person.

Spent a night here, nice location. Old but fairly clean bathroom. The shower was heated with wood in the evening and was definitely open but we did not use. Gets dusty with the wind.
Uneventful night. Expensive, paid 1100 for 2 in a truck camper.

gorgeous location. at the lake. can get busy during the day. we paid 250ar$ ppi. a little expensive considering the showers were closed while we were there.

250AR per person, facilities are tired and the women’s shower block is being used as storage making the men’s showers shared at 30 min intervals. This was not explained to us when we asked about the showers upon arrival, we were just told the showers were open at 8PM, same time the electricity was turned on. The system is wood fired, doesn’t need electricity, but they keep the shower room locked anyway. Locals were allowed to take showers during the day but not day use visitors or campers, they tried to be sneaky about it but we could see the bathhouse from our camp spot...very annoying. We managed to get decently hot showers around 7PM, which is when they came and explained the men/women time slots but said it started at 6:30PM, not 8 like we were originally told. There is a sign saying all water must be boiled and another, posted in multiple spots, saying they aren’t responsible for lost or stolen items or robberies. The robberies bit doesn’t invoke confidence in an establishment located in and run by the local Mapuche community. We had a weird exchange when trying to leave, the guy at the gate wouldn’t open it saying someone else had to come, he did lift it after I demanded it (extremely forceful, we were over the place by that point). We were in need of showers and laundry, the only reason we stayed. We normally don’t advocate against a place but this one was not worth it, there are much better places in the 7 lakes district.

nice Lakeside campground at the flat Stretch where a little River flows into the Lake. popular on Summer weekends. sunday morning was crowded with families by the asados. but that seems to ne normal for this Region and time of year. banos where ok, hot showers from 8 PM to 11 and, apparently, also in the morning.

Arrived after sunset, asked at the house next to restaurant if we could stay the night. No problem, we did not have to pay. Not sure whether the camping was open or not, we were the only ones there. We could not use the toilet/shower. Found a great place between the lake and the river with nice views!

Big camp site; both spots with lake view, as less out of wind next to a small stream. Beautiful location, for both tents as campers, with access to a small beach. However, the showers can only be used between 8-11 am and 19-23h, warm water only if the fire is on or if the staff is there to attend it (today the staff left at 20h, door to showers are locked, no hot water for the dishes). Not reasonable to me if you charge 130 p.p.p.n and 40 for a camper.

Rather large campground at the lake with pitches directly at the water with great views and others with better wind shielding from trees and bushes. Reasonably well maintained ablutions. Despite the promises the shower was cold in the morning. Electricity at sites, no wifi, picnic benches, fire places. ARS 260 (2 adults, camper).

Little Mapuche-run campsite. Nice sites, either right on the lake or near a small stream. When we were there, this was one of two campsites that was open in San Martin. We were stuck here for two nights due to heavy snow (!). Hot showers only when they poke up the fire high enough, mostly in the late afternoon. Showers and toilets clean. During the day there are young people who run the campsite. At night you have the place to yourself. Firepits, tables, electricity and water. Firewood for sale. We payed 100 peso per person per night, which we felt was overcharging. No wifi. Excellent wifi in town (restaurants or the government building). There is a little restaurant on site, but that is only open in season. Quite a steep road to enter the campsite, but it looks accessable for big rigs. We stayed in a small campervan.
The campsite offers very different sites, so even in heavy wind you can find protection. Distance to town is walkable for the energetic.

A really nice but pricey campground right on the lake, just outside San Martin. We paid 100P/person. Has pretty much all the amenities except wifi. Big rigs, there are some sharp corners so I don't think you will fit here. We saw signs saying no dogs are allowed here since it is part of Nacional Park Lanin. Strong wind. Clean bathrooms, fire pit and tables. Stunning view down Lago Lacar.
