As described before. We’re only campers to stay a night. The park rangers take care of us, Manuel(one of rangers) escorts us to the mirador of L.Panza de Cabra for safety reason. There are basins for washing dishes outside of toilets. Personal(mobile chip) 4G is working here. It is cloudy when we’re here, it’s mystic!

As comments below, nice camping, hot shower, few people, lots of birds, monkey nearby, mosquitos and mosquitos again.
At this time only the north part of the Park is open, it takes time to dry after rainy season

Great camping with very relaxed atmosphere. Very clean showers and toilets, friendly guards, nice trails and all that for free. Wifi did not work, but 4g signal sometimes. There is a Tucan, which comes very close, many other birds and many loud monkeys.

No height limitation, second bridge says 20t weight limit, so the first one must be the same...
Lots of bugs only on the trails, few in the parking and camping at this time of year; we were the only ones there. Very good showers with immediate hot water, which is highly chlorinated.

Parque Chaco offers various hikings from 2 km to 20 km in the rainforests, with nice miradors. They are not really spectacular, and they can be closed if there is to much rain. You can see many birds, and some monkeys, but most of all billions of mosquitos so brace yourselves...
The campground is totally free, with hot showers, clean toilets, water, electricity, WiFi, many barbecue and picnic tables. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. We stayed in May and we had the campground for ourselves. We spent 3 quiet nights and day, enjoying the nature, the sun and the silence.

Very nice place with bbq and table. The wifi is private and phone connexion very weak. It worth to leave the main road to have a night here compare to a ypf! Shower clean with hot water at least for man.

Update: the park is open and the bridge over rio negro is rebuilt. Nice campground. Showers were cold. Wifi is working near park office. At this time of year only one hike is open.

Report Check-In

The park is temporarily closed as they are rebuilding the bridge across the Rio Negro. I expect it will be open again by March 2018?

Our rig 3,3 meters was too big to get through main gate but we parked just outside which was still within the forrest shade of the camp grounds and just at the entrance to one of their trails which we explored on our bikes and managed to see a capybara before it darted off into the bushes. Morning and evening mosquitos are rampant so do take care!!! We wore pants, long sleeve with hood and boots and still got bitten through all the clothes!! During the midday scorching sun however you can get by in shorts. The shower facilities were very clean. The staff were friendly. We didn't use the camp ground but it all looked very well maintained. We spent 24 hours here and it made our drive through the barren Chaco much more pressure able and memorable, worth the stop.

Report Check-In

the entrance has maximum height of 3.10m - walk 300m to the visitor center they will put away the 2.6m barrier. Water at restrooms and outside is NOT potable!!
At the visitor center exists an cooling device with an 20 liter bottle.

Nice place, but don't forget your repellent against mosquitos.

The showers do have hot water most time of the day, very hot!! one of the best campingspots so far, for free ! Although the campground is big enough, no big rigs possible, because the maximum height allowed at the entrance is only 2,60 meter (it's written on a sign). But i can amagine a bit higher is not a problem, they didn't check ours and the entrancesign is higher than 3 meters. About the electricity: you need a 25 meter cable because the parkingarea is quite far away from the electraspots. There are 2 plugs.
