This park has a large campground with electricity. There are not many toilet blocks. The campground has a big restaurant and a mirador overlooking the Uruguay river. There are about 3 longish driving trails. It is the right distance from Buenos Aires to make an excellent first night stop on your way north. We would use it again.

I have visit el parque nacional el palmar, just per coincidence, as i visit Palacio San Jose, also a great place to visit. We had a free afternoon so we drove to visit this park, and were surprise by the vegetation, the flowers and palms. I highly recommend to visit this park with the whole family during the whole year.
