Camping in/near Uyuni

Is it possible to find a spot to camp in/near Uyuni? We have all our own camping supplies, just wondering if it is possible there and if anyone has done it?

Thanks!

Around Uyuni it is rather a bleak desert, but I guess it is possible to camp. However nobody does that. There are lots of cheap accomodation, like in alml towns in Bolivia.

If you want to hike and camp around the Salar, it is better to choose other areas than Uyuni. There is a daily bus through the salar from Uyuni to the small town of Llica. You will find better camping around there, for instance at the foot of the Llica volcano.
