Description

Beautiful grassy camping with quinchos (roofed área with tables and grill), clean bathrooms, cold showers. Gorgeous part of PN Iberá, more wild than Carlos Pellegrini, very few visitors, lots of wildlife. One of the prettiest places I’ve seen in N Argentina. Entrance is 30km of sandy track, 2WD if dry, but will get ugly when wet. Signed turn for the Cambyreta sector of PN Iberá at -27.6359, -56.8143 then close gates behind you and follow signs to Monte Rey.

Nice camping spot, cold shower, no electricity.
When dry, the road is ok with a 2WD, some sandy part(San Nicolas is another level !).
Saddly a big part near the campsite burned this summer, it will take time for animals to come back close to the camping.
Though we have a preferance on San Nicolas portal if you had to choose.

Wonderful place. Parts of the road are pretty sandy but no problem when dry. We stayed 5 days. There are great bathrooms with cold showers and very nice quinchos to make an asado. There is even mobile phone signal if you are at the right spot.

Es increíble este sitio! llegamos con nuestra Sprinter 415 sin mayor problema. hay zonas de arena pero si el camino está seco (es decir que no haya llovido recientemente) se puede llegar sin problema. de todas formas es aconsejable informarse antes en la web del parque donde ponen la información de los caminos y en parques nacionales. NO recomendados fiarse de la oficina de turismo de Ituzaingó ya que nos dijeron que era imposible llegar con nuestra furgoneta que deberíamos contratar sí o sí una excursión con transporte (50 dólares por persona) y la realidad es que pudimos llegar perfecto pese al miedo que nos infundieron.
la zona de acampe está perfecta, super cuidada, con baños y con duchas (solo agua fría) con fregaderos para lavar y todo. los quinchos tienen mesa, parrilleros y agua (el agua NO es potable). esta todo super bien mantenido.
Chule el guardaparques es un genio, para poder pasar la noche dentro del parque hay que pedirle permiso y el te lo da. es todo gratis, desde la zona de acampe hasta el acceso al parque.
vimos un montón de animales, en la zona de acampe en los árboles pudimos ver una familia de 8 monos y una pareja de guacamayos rojos!! también yacarés, carpinchos, armadillos, ciervos, zorro, etc. realmente merece mucho la pena visitar este lugar.

Excellent and incredibly well maintained place to camp. It almost looks like an English garden. Lots of animals everywhere and we were completely alone. Part of the road is quite sandy, but still absolutely worth the little side trip.

Amazing spot! A must visit if you are driving on rp12. Already the drive to the amazing clean camping is an adventure with a lot of animals, which are not even hard to see. The camping is a big and grassy area with great quinchos and also a lot of animals to see just spending your day there. You can not drive on the grassy area with your vehicle. Its only for tents, but stay in the parking place just next to it. You cant miss this place!

Beautiful place really awesome. But: there is no access to the well managed campground for any car! Just for tents and you have to carry your stuff at least 200 m. Rigs can stay on the parking lot - no shade.

As described, beautiful place - keep it that way!!! Stone archway is more than 3m high, we have 3.10 m height, no problem passing!

We came here after a few days of on and off rain so not sure what to expect. We stopped first in Ituzaingo at the Tourist Info. We were told road doable but camping area flooded so we couldn't stay overnight and had to be out of park by 6pm. The first almost 12km are gravel with washboard parts. When you pass thru the first gate of 7 you hit the sandy track. There were muddy parts and lots of puddles and on the way in we did use 4wd some but was drier on the way out and not needed. When we reached final gate before Monte Rey we met a Ranger who told us it was possible to camp but we couldn't fit under the stone archway! It's max 2.8m and we are 2.9! We did do the 4.6 km Vehicular sendero and saw so many capybaras with lots of babies. Recommend even if you only do a day trip. Took us 4.5 hours in and back out with a lunch stop and lots of photo stops.

ncredible nature and very nice camping place for cars and (better) tents. Toilets, cold showers, but bring drinking water (they told us it isnt drinkable (anymore?)) and food. The camino is absolutely stunning and doable without a four wheel drive if it doesnt rain too much.

The road is fine, we had 4x4, definitely playing it safe but not really necessary. the road is absolutely astonishing, life in abundant. On the way wherever you stop try to spot caymans. There are many ;) We also saw scarlet macaws, deers, foxes, ton of other birds and of course capybaras. A lot of them. I think one of the nicest campgrounds we have been to in the last 10 years of travel. Oh on the way there are some estancias. When you go out of the car to open the fences to pass, be aware you are not too close to the cattle.

Amazing nature, i had doubts about the 30 km unpaved road, but even the road is sightseeing! So many animals around, visible from the road! Capybarras, crocodiles, antilopes, cows, horses, birds... Be prepared, no electricity, no shops or food in national park camping Monte rey, drinking water yes. You can spend the night, just a registration is needed, that rangers knows who is in the park. Camping is free! They will give you instructions for stay. You can sleep in your motorhome like us or in tent. There are barbecue shelters, restrooms, cold showers. The night in the park was just amazing, lot of noises, even capybarras were camping around us. The volunteers and other people in park are very nice, smiling and helpful. It was really one of the best nature experience for us. Earlier this year they had problems with floods, but now the road to Monte rey is ok, high clearance car recommended. Just ask them for info on Facebook or in turist office in Ituzaingo. be prepared it is 1,5 hour drive to the camp because of the road quality but also the animals and sightseeing. If you have questions, just ask at the entrance of the park guard (directly when you left main road to the unpaved road to park.) The walking trails or “senderos” were closed, but the “sendero vehicular” was opened. From the Monte rey you can do the “sendero vehicular” by car, it is 4 km circuit.

We came to this place as a last chance to get into Ibera as the road to San Nicolas was washed away in parts. Lovely 30 km drive on gravel and sand. Many gates to open and close. We were not allowed on the campgrounds or further into the park due to the heavy floodings of this year. Camped on the parking.
