Riding the Teleferico to the top of a volcano is an excellent way to spend some time in Quito. The cable car takes you to the top of the volcano at 4100 meters for breathtaking views of Quito and the surrounding areas. Ride cost only...More
Teleferiqo – I visited here yesterday and it was a clear day to see the unbelievable views of Quito. I rode up in a gondola with 4 other people but rode down by myself…picture taking is omnipresent going up, viewing from the top, and going...More

Yes, you can camp there. There is no cost. There is also a refuge cabin near the top of the Guagua Pichincha which is near the crater and is an active volcano. You can see the crater usually early in the morning before the fog and clouds come in.
The cabin does have beds and some mattresses. There is also water. Bring a blanket and some matches if you want to boil water for some tea or coca leaves to help with altitude sickness. I do believe there is a small cost for spending the night if the park guide is there. I don't think it is more than 10 dollars.
