Date Place Comment
July 3rd, 2021 Saddle Sore Ranch

Route 66 travelers are allowed to boondock here for free up to 48 hours. Must contact saddlesoreranch.com to get the OK to stay.
Pick nick table, fire pits and decent cell service.
No bathrooms or other amenities.
Great view of the mountains.

July 2nd, 2021 Entrance to Forest

Primitive camping at the entrance of the forest. We planned to camp in the actual forest but it was closed due to high fire risk. This was our next choice.
Go to the Pilot fuel station and head West on the frontage road aka old Route 66.
Just flat ground no trees. Near the freeway so it's quite noisy.
Good place to sleep overnight. Just be careful of where you park. Lots of ants in the area.
Big rigs will fit here. Other campers near by.
Verizon has 4 bars.

July 1st, 2021 ATV trails overlooking Albuquerque

It's an ATV riding area. Can be accessed on Route 66 right behind the Loves fuel station. 4x4 and high clearance recommend. 4x4 big rigs can fit here.
You can get a good view of the city from here. Nice and cool breeze at night. In close proximity to the high way so you will hear vehicles driving by.
Verizon had 3 bars on top of the hill.
Spoke with some locals and were told this was free use land.

June 30th, 2021 Cliff top

Awesome place to stay the night or a few if you choose. Road in isn't bad but I would not attempt it in a low clearance vehicle. We didnt need to use 4x4.
I would not recommend bringing a large rig such a motorhome here.

June 29th, 2021 Spring river park

its open.
really nice park.
we wanted to camp under the bridge but we were on a flash flood warning so we camped up by the old bridge.

June 29th, 2021 Scissortail Campground

very nice place with everything you need. hot showers. clean and neat.

June 27th, 2021 Route 66

If you are traveling along the old Highway 66 just look for a small opening in the trees near this area. Go slow or you may miss it. It will lead to a powerline clearing. if you keep going down the trail you will find a larger opening. Other trails lead out from here. looks like no one has used these in a while. Did not see any private property or keep out signs. Some road noise due to the proximity of the highway but not bad. Not recommend for larger vehicles. 4x4 may be needed if it has rained alot.

We only stayed here over night.

2 Bars on Verizon.

June 26th, 2021 Secret Beach

You can still access this place. There were other people there staying the night. People go there to fish so you will see people coming and going.
Not a place I would take kids as it is very dirty and has garage all over the place.
It was quiet tho.

June 24th, 2021 Cross Ford river access

Nice free spot to camp. No power or water, boondocking only. Easy access to the river. Verizon works here. 3 bars.

January 4th, 2021 Tabasco Beach Parking next to Cascadas beach resort

Lots of vendors on the beach.
Nice and quiet but we were here on a Monday so it may be different on a weekend. Great seafood at a near by restaurant called Cocos. No one else camping here this night but us.

January 3rd, 2021 At the beach

A nice beach.

Other overlander camping near by.

Feels safe and you get a great view of La Paz across the water.

Telcell works great from here.

January 1st, 2021 Puerto Sanfrancisquito

Nice little place. Gentleman checking us in was very nice and informative.

September 4th, 2020 Ta-Ha-Zouka Park

Full hookup sites. Tent camping available. Nice bathrooms. Pond and river near by.

March 3rd, 2020 SLP

Nice beach that is empty most weekdays. Can get busy on the weekends but there is plenty of room for everyone. Seen some camping trailers here but no big rigs. Entrance can be sketchy. May need 4x4 at the entrance on the wet months.

April 2nd, 2019 La Pasadita

Nice little spot to grab some authentic Mex food. Gigantic breakfast burritos. Nice and clean restrooms. Indoor or outdoor eating areas.

April 1st, 2019 Athena Launch Complex

Very cool place.. It is a creepy place but awesome. We camped a few hundred yards away since I forgot my ginger counter.

March 31st, 2019 Casino Smoke Shop near Chevron

Good place to catch up on some sleep. Saw other campers here on the lot.

May 25th, 2001 Fidel's El Pabellón RV-Park
