The 2012 Campeonato Argentino de Rugby was the 66th version of the annual rugby competition held in Argentina in 2012. It was played between 3 March and 28 April of that year. The winner was Cordobesa, who defeated Rosario in the final game.

The Campeonato Argentino consisted of 28 teams, divided into three divisions, "Campeonato", "Ascenso" and "Estimulo", based on the records of the individual teams. For the first time since 1950, national teams from outside Argentina were admitted into the competition, with teams from Uruguay and Chile being admitted to the Campeonato division, and Brasil and Paraguay admitted to the Estimulo division.
