The people there hate tourists, especially foreigners. They ruined our experience after refusing use of their restroom after a long bus ride to the campground where the trail begins. The views on the mountain are great, but the people are an embarrassment to the park and the country of Argentina. I agree with Marta K's review... It seems they have a bored habit of being terrible hosts.

We took a detour to Lago Roca after our visit to Perito Moreno Glacier. The road to the lake is on a dirt road off the main hwy for approx. 30 km. It was late afternoon and we were not sure how long it would take to reach the park. By the time we reached the park, we still had about another hr or so before sunset, so we drove to the end to the Estancia with sheep and horses; did not go down to the lake side. On the way back to El Calafate, the sunsets were very beautiful with storm clouds. Cero Cristal hike was originally on our itinerary for an all day excursion, but after driving the dirt road, approx 68 km from El Calafate, we decided not to return the next day. If we had more time in El Calafate, we would have returned to Lago Roca for the hike, which was recommended by our airbnb hostess. My review is based on our initial impression, which seemed like an interesting place to explore with more time.

My boyfriend and I were staying in the free camping area as it was more natural and rustic but went multiple times to eat at the Lago Roca restaurant, buy snacks at their store and ask the employees for tips. We noticed we were being charged much more than other Spanish speaking clients for dinner, were not allowed to use their washrooms even after buying multiple items and dinner, etc. We even once noticed that the employees laughed at us after we had payed a horribly large amount. Don't mind paying a big amount, but do not like a lack of respect when we were being 100% respectful and speaking as much Spanish as we could. Just a bit disappointed in the service and how we were treated.

We spent about five happy hours driving out to Lago Roca, with fun stops to see sheep being moved, watch guanacos, and take zillions of pictures. The campground at Lago Roca is really alluring and we wandered down to the lake with its glorious views. You can go out by the Glaciars road and back to El Calafate via the back gravel roads to make a circuit.
