Description

Nice camp spot good for cyclists and campers ( smaller). View at lake, island and volcano. Many spots for tents under the trees. Water in the lake quite warm even after high season - enough for bath :) Potable water from the stream nearby. Places to make fire, but also some rubbish. Seems to be crowded during summer. During the night we were alone. Road is close, you hear cars, but they don't see you.
To reach that spot just turn left after mirador (50m) when you go from Puerto Fuy. You will see the gate, but you can pass because there is big space/hole in the fence ( enough for normal car). Everybody pass through it.

The issues with being able to enter with any sized vehicle are not true anymore. It also appears like someone is preparing to make it an official campsite as they are constructing a building that looks like it will have bathrooms inside and a shower on the outside. So possibly will cost something in the near future to use.

Anyways, arrived about 1pm and there were 2 groups camping there as well as at least three more vehicles. By 4, there were double that amounts and at 6, even more. Mostly families enjoying the beautiful day at the lakeside beach. I checked out the dirt road that goes off to the right immediately when you enter. The first 20 yards is filled with toilet paper confetti… disgusting to say the least, but a bit further up, there are actually some descent, shaded spots to camp. No water, but plenty of shade and quiet. I moved back down closer to the beach around 7 and people started leaving shortly after (sunset currently is after 9:15). Quiet night even with the road close by. Traffic dies down when the sun does!

If you have a family or want to go swimming, this is a nice place, otherwise I would look elsewhere (depending on where you are going, there is a great, quiet location on the SE corner of the lake near the entrance to the Reserva for the volcano’s)

You have to be a pretty tiny car to access this place. All vans cannot pass the trench. The passing point is only 1.5m wide with 2m deep trenches on both side. We couldn’t get in

Update: decided to expand the road by moving some rocks xD the view is worth it. Was so scary though a local tourist couple didnt see the trench and almost drove right into it. We were yelling and waving at them to stop. Remember to come out of your vehicle to look at it before crossing!!

Es un lugar bastante hermoso para acampar, hay un vertedero natural de agua por un costado del lago, hay varios lugares donde se puede esconder de la lluvia y hacer fuego. Es bastante lindo, la entrada es a unos 50mts del mirador, se puede entrar en coche aunque nosotros lo hicimos en bicicleta

incredible place, so far my favourite, we came back after huilohuilo.

as described before. on Friday night, we shared the space with a local family in their tent with two young children, and when we returned on Sunday afternoon the beach was pretty full, with 10 cars, mostly families and couples having fires, swimming in the lake, cooking etc., with a lovely atmosphere. they gradually all left as night came, and we had the place to ourselves again.

you can find some paths which bring you out onto an outcrop of rock to the right, where you can fish... or jump in the lake :)
