Located in Caleta Gonzalo, a few meters from the ramp where the ferry arrives (which goes to and from Hornopiren), the Rio Gonzalo campsite is a place surrounded by nature, with a good infrastructure and perfect as a base of operations to get to know the Park Pumalín Douglas Tompkins.
– Parking 100 meters away (you can’t get directly to the campsite by vehicle… you have to walk and move your things on foot).
– Not suitable for motorhomes or mobile homes as there is no vehicular access to the campsite.

– Community barbecue areas (it is not allowed to make a fire, only propane stoves).
– Access to the shore of the Reñihue fjord and view of dolphins on some occasions.
– Closest trail: Cascada trail, start 150 meters from the parking lot.
– Other trails: Los Alerces, Tronador and Cascadas Escondidas, 13 km to the south.
Your camping equipment:
– In Pumalin it rains between 6,000 and 7,000 mm per year; It’s not called the temperate rain forest for nothing! there is no such thing as a “dry season” and it is very likely that you will have rain -and wind- during your stay: bring a very good tent and personal equipment that is appropriate for camping in those conditions.
