Campamento Torres not on the CONAF website to book

I am not seeing campamento Torres on the booking list for Nov 2017. Is anyone else experiencing same problem. I even tried booking for the days I am not staying in just so see, if it was not showing because it's fully booked but that is not the case at all.

Per CONAF, Campamento Torres is closed for the 17/18 season. Chileno is your closest option.

Campamento Torres will be closed for the complete season 2017/18 according to CONAF. This is going to be funny when all people who want to see the sunrise at Mirador Torres have to book into Camp. Chileno (for an exorbitant price!) and then have to walk for 3,5 hours in the middle of the night...

Yeah that's right Chileno don't allow camping only option!! We have to pay a extortionated price for a full board camping. I am tempted to just hide in the rock somewhere near the base of Torres Del Panie lol!!

Same for me (depending on weather and situation there) even though I booked the camp to be of the safe side...

The park is very strict about only camping in designated campsites. Don't consider camping outside those areas. The people who do are removed from the park. Some have ended up in front of a judge in Puerto Natales.

So only options for people camping is to camp in Refugio Chileno. I just checked yesterday and camping for 1 person in their platform with full board is $100plus. This just seems ridiculous price. Is there any option for us campers then??

If you camp a camping central is just $10.000 clp and that campsite is really big, showing up without reservation won't be a problem, not even in high season.

That's good for me. I don't want to pay extortionate price just for one night.

Camping central is it managed by fantastico sur?

But Camping there means even 2 more hours of walking in the middle of the night when you want to get to Mirador Torres for sunrise than from Chileno.... appx. 4h in total.
