Description

Reception, campground and ranger station for Karukinka national park. Not a very well known park but we loved this part of Tierra del Fuego. The park is managed by WCS, an American conservation society. The campground is a walk-in tent only on a nice grassy field amongst the trees, there's a quincho shelter with grills and firewood, all for 8.000 CLP per person. There are domo's, a guesthouse and bike rentals too. One Bathroom with a really good hot and clean shower is shared with the rangers, but all good. There are not really facilities for overlanders but they seemed very happy to accomodate and help us and there is plenty of level parking space. We stayed in front of the ranger station which had beautiful views and our friends camped with their tent. There are good maps of the trails too, day hikes and a very remote 5 day hike called La Pacienca which was closed unfortunately. This is a remote but very beautiful and interesting place worth exploring. Make sure you come prepared with enough fuel, water and provisions as the next store is in Porvenir. There is fuel at a logging company in Russfin. Enjoy it!

Latest Check-Ins

Arrived here around 17ish with our campervan, we were first told we couldn’t stay but they later told us we could park in front of the administration. They then told us it was 10.000 clp in total and when I wanted to pay it turned out to be 12.000clp per person, so 24.000 in total (because we are foreigners). Didn’t think it was worth this price so left. Surroundings are beautiful and quiet though.
