Generally good campsites with hot water (sometimes for limited hours), clean toilets. More expensive than Argentina, around $2000-3000 per person (pesos, not US!). Bush camping is easy (at least in the South).
Other information GMT-3 hrs, no daylight saving.  Phone calls are cheaper than Argentina. Very quick and painless border formalities between Argentina and Chile (either direction), even with a vehicle.

Overall rating

Seems more businesslike than Argentina, though still friendly. Very beautiful, cold in the mountains!
