Owner description: Panama’s first national park, this one was created thanks to a landscape created by the now-extinct El Valle de Antón volcano. Avid bird-watchers will love it here, as will visitors who want to take in the incredible views from the park’s lookout spots.

Deserted. Nice walks if you are fit. It is very steep.

We went on a tour with Panama Roadrunner tours that they were just setting up, called 'Off the Beaten Path', which included a trip up the mountain to Campana national park....there were wonderful views of the lush countryside, and it was a welcome break to be away from the crowds at Decameron for the afternoon. You could hike trails if you wanted, but we just drove to the top, enjoyed the views, bought fruit from a roadside stand, and went back down again.

I'd highly recommend it!

The park has easy and some hard trails. Better to go in the dry season - May to December as there is a fair bit of mud on the trails in wet season. I suggest you start the climb on the road to this park in early AM. There are places with parking to pull off to see the amazing views-see pictures. If you are early enuf and the clouds have not come in yet, you can see all of Punta Chame coastline on the ocean AND a view of Panama City skyscrapers and skyline the other direction. Do take time to park and check out the views. There is a ranger station about half way up and a map of the park. Go early also because it does get quite hot as the day goes on. Many species of birds; and if you are quiet you may also see a sloth or two or the Geoffroy's tamarins.
So if you venture into the interior of Panama from the city, look for the signs that points to the park on your right approx 50 km from Panama City. You would be on a hilly part of the road past Chorrera and the road to the parque would be on your right.

I have walked from the bottom of Cerro Campana until the summit and continued throughout the National Park.Wwell worth a visit for anyone interested in the outdoors and likes to observe animals and birds in their natural habitat.
