Alto Caparaó's lone hotel and small collection of pousadas are strung out along the town's long main street, Av Pico da Bandeira.

Hikers can make use of the national park's four rustic campgrounds: Tronqueira and Terreirão on the Minas Gerais side, and Casa Queimada and Macieira on the Espírito Santo side. All sites have flush toilets and cold showers. Bring drinking water, food and gear, and reserve sites by email.
