Ideal to spend a day outdoors, the Arroyito Dam displays a singular picture created by nature and by human intelligence.
The vibrant turquoise of the lagoon formed when the arid materials were extracted to build the dam makes contrast with the green of the trees. Biodiversity is represented by a considerable number of ducks, thrushes, mockingbirds, swallows, seagulls, egrets, cormorants, black-necked swans and avutardas which dwell in the surroundings and are object of bird-watching tours and photographic safaris.
The campsite lies in the right place, on the banks of a beautiful creek sheltered by the willows and the poplars, which provide shade and protection. The mild scenery and the infrastructure of the place invite visitors to spend the day, enjoy a picnic or a delicious asado and then relax. The proposal is completed with a visit to the Arroyito hydro-electric dam, which features a 39-square-kilometers reservoir. The view is very pretty and it lets visitors appreciate the significance of this engineering work for the entire area.
