there are two large pullouts on the downhill side, right off of Highway 1. they are not level butt their spots you can make work. they are very large and good for big rigs having to stop. there's also a call box here in case of emergency. no cell phone signal of any kind in this location. this stretch of highway one doesn't seem to be too busy and would make a good one night stop.

Lovely place. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. Lovely clean bathrooms. Good services. Excellent option for pets, they have one dog that is very friendly. No problems with our cats like we had at other places. Highly recommend.

Nice services and convenient location for the border. Trails are well marked and easy to explore. Nice clean bathrooms and ok WiFi. Didn’t stay long because of the dogs and our cats, really not pet friendly for this reason. Also quiet loud at night, lots of trucks air braking, which we didn’t expect.

Full hookup sites behind motel. Fire pits, concrete pads for doorway. Sites are a little too close to each other. Sites have a small amoun of trees. Some sites near the Portneuf River and sites near mountain side. Very busy during the summer. Located right across the street from hot pools.
$65 a night for Summer Rates
$30 a night off season.
No water hook ups for off season - risk of freezing.

Wild dispersed site on BLM land overlooking Christmas Valley, nestled between some sagebrush and a large Juniper. Beautiful views of the sunrise and sunset. We were driving towards Crack in the Ground and it was getting late so we were pleased to find this spot. About 15 minutes from the town of CV and about 3 miles from the Crack. Dirt site about 25yds from the road with a turnaround for larger rigs. No amenities, but fair cell service on Google Fi. Road in was some decently bumpy washboard but you could make it in any vehicle. High clearance if you want to go fast :). On satellite imaging looks like some other options for dispersed camping along this road towards the Crack.

NOT BLM - parked near some decommissioned oil tanks not far at all off the road and was approached respectfully in the morning by workers who asked if we were headed out today. When I asked, they informed that this is privately owned property, not BLM, and said that there is some BLM 'down by the river,' pointing generally north up the 65. Anyway just a heads up. Cool spot and might be doable if you arrive after dark and leave in early morning, but not government land.

Both the dump and the water are locked, closed due to "potential environmental issues."

Turn into the dirt road to access these campsites. Many fire rings along this maintained dirt road. 2wd accessible. Getting 1-2 bars T-Mobile lte for the first couple of sites and loses signal as you go further down the road.

This is a nice little spot. Train yard right next to you but they didn’t bother me. Take a walk down the road after you park to the historic downtown and see all the “standing on the corner” kitch. Quiet spot, no one bothered me and was able to spread out a little and not feel rushed.

Beautiful quiet spot on top of the mountain. 15 min from new minas, up a winding twisty road. Quiet, wooded, and secluded, so happy 🥰

Get a block of ice cut to the size you need. we bought this one for 60 pesos. Will last 1 to 2 weeks in our Yeti cooler! If you're driving South, it's on the right just past the first speed bump in Buena Vista.

It’s a very quiet place for the night in the main zocalo of the small village of cacao. Nice people. Very close to the cenote

This is a must for Overlanders (and for your creativity). Whatever you are missing in your comfort during travel, need to replace items for lightweight and durability, or convenience in living style, this is a place to stop by when you are in the area! Lots of AWESOME store in this lot as well, including bookstores, groceries, bakeries, and take outs. Your one stop shop for the luxury of life before heading on the road again. (Large rig not recommended. Max would be the extended Ford transit)

We ask around and a neighbor told this is a safe area with no parking meter everywhere else there are parking meters 8 pesos per hour but streets are to narrow that why we choose to stay here.

Redwoods, trails, Banana Slugs, Deers, and shades! Entrance fee $6. One RV site and 3 tent sites. Tent camping $34 peak season, $24 Winter. Unlimited HOT shower from 8 AM - Sunset. No cell service (T-Mobile) but 2-3 bars at Valley View on the East side of the park. Staffs are really nice and respectful. Roads coming in are paved but can be steep before entrance. Take it slow and mind your own driving. Traffic can be fast and pushy.

Good stop before heading south. Chevron here is always the cheapest in town. All kind of Asian food nearby (Vietnamese, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Japanese, Korean). Sprout, outdoor supplies, banks for cash withdrawal (campsites cash only?), Costco in the distance northwest. Large rig friendly in parking lot (look on satellite maps), not sure about overnight camping.

Cheapest Chevron in town, plenty of GOOD Asian food, outdoor supplies 37.30716, -121.81168

Parking is good at the entrance. Not much service on Verizon. Perfect place to park if you want to visit the hot springs the next day

Less than half a mile to get there I believe. Trail will take you right to it. The upper pool was warmer for me. Very relaxing!

Sweet, like new palapas on 12 mile beach and easy access to black sand beach south of the lighthouse. Very kind locals, feels safe and good (blue) store with fresh vegetables. Pay for palapas at the other store Pattis(orange) much smaller store but bigger building. About 150 nightly. It’s probable you won’t get charged unless you go in to pay but it’s better karma to pay. Two entrances get you to palapas, best is to turn right at old burned store and then a short drive into beach to find which palapa suits you. As always, walk the short sandy distance to the palapas just to know you’re rig can make it. Enjoy the charm and the peace here, it’s pretty sweet. Good birding too.
