  • Good afternoon, everybody. The truth an amazing experience, we went to spend 4 days and had to renew to be able to continue enjoying. The service of the park at the hands of the army is very good as well as the prices, $180 without any service i.e light and water and $230 for the parcels that if they have. Personally we were in one of those who had no service but we didn't feel it at all. Some tip that I can leave is that they seek to camp near the new baths by Cerro Chato, going towards the aviary, there is a parador that is called "Calandracas" that is most advisable, they have everything that is needed for the passage. There, these bathrooms have the necessary facilities for an excellent stay. It has a supermarket 7 blocks "Super Chato" that has everything. You may miss a little something but minimal, although it is somewhat higher in prices, but the other option is to leave the campground and buy outside. Tips: Camping about half a block from the bathroom for any eventuality, both the beach "La Waitressa" and "Achias" are familiar. They accept credit and debit cards.

  • A great surprise! We stopped just to visit the area for a few hours. Very well preserved space, beautiful, lots of nature, interesting to explore, with several different areas. Easy access to those who come from the road, with parking space. Free.
