Camping reservations Camp Seron booked up?

We are coming to the park end of March (next week), but have been unable to book reservations as we keep

getting an "all booked up" at camp seron no matter what dates we put in. If we are doing the full circuit we will need to stay somewhere through that section ...any suggestions? If we get to the campsite and it is filled will they really turn us away? And where do we go then? Any help appreciated.

The closing date for Camp Seron is the 15th of March and then it doesn't open again until November. The closing dates can move a bit either way, a couple of days, but by the end of March it will be closed. If the refugio is closed the campsite usually is too, but you can ask at the entrance to the park about what is available as far as camping and routes are concerned, they can tell you.

Thank you so much! We will do that. Do you think that we will have any trouble on a day to day basis finding places to camp without reservations? I know we must camp in campgrounds, but We are trying to keep our schedule flexible and do not want to be tied into being at a a certain campground on a certain date.

You are going to have to describe your route when you enter the park. They are very careful now about people camping outside allowed areas and ejected 15 people from the park this past summer for doing exactly that. I don't really know what campgrounds will be available to you at the time you are coming, but an email to Fantástico Sur and Vertice will give you the information on their campgrounds. The CONAF ones are free but can be closed for clean up etc. Really, you are going to have to remain flexible and see what is open and available when you get to the park. At that time of year you should find room in any campground which is open. Early snow could make some routes impossible as well. You could go to the afternoon chat in Erratic Rock if you are in Puerto Natales overnight and they may have current info too.

You must camp only in the designated areas. The park is very strict about where you can camp. More than fifteen people were thrown out of the park this summer for not following the rules.
