Budget Campervan Hire Chile - Campervan Parks Review
Campervan parks in Chile are numerous and can help make your holiday more comfortable. There is also what is called wild camping where people stay under the stars where there are few to nobody around. The national parks and reserves are numerous to enjoy and are located from near the border with Peru in the north to Punta Arenas in the south.
What are the roads like in Chile?
The Pan-American highway begins at the border with Peru and goes down close to the tip of Chile. This is one of the better maintained roads in the country. Since the country is on the western side of the Andeans mountain range, the Atacama desert on the western coast is one of the driest places on earth.
The roads in the city are paved along with the highway, but many of the side roads are just gravel or dirt. Due to the dryness of the region, most of them are navigable year round.

An alternative to renting a pitch at a campsite is wild camping. There are so many roads you can turn your campervan down and enjoy the great outdoors. It is worth a try for at least one night. Wild camping is camping that does not occur in a designated campground..
Many of the national parks permit this type of activity. What should be remembered is there is no littering permitted and the site where you park should look the same when you leave as it did when you arrived if not better. You should also remember to bring enough drinking water to last your stay.
Camping is Chile is a great adventure, but remember this is the southern hemisphere and winter is from April till September and the summer months are from October to March.
