Report Check-In

We enjoyed that beautiful park, we just saw 2 other cars when we were there and camping was very private, nice off road park!
The border ferry is operated by san parks, so if you need information you can call them. if you just visit the park 110 one way (even when you have a wild card), expensive for that short distance, if you transit it seems to be more expensive, operating hours from 8.00- 16:00 (probably 16:30)
