as with most of Oregon's rest areas is this one is clean and quiet as far as rest areas go. large area for RVs and trucks. plenty of Auto spots. nice messy area and picnic tables. the rest area North and prior to this one didn't have a good signal so I decided to stop here. two bars of lte with Verizon network good service. lots of road noise because you're at on a downhill grade but it was fine for one night. bathrooms are clean, picnic area and trash kept clean. just a nice place to stop

Very very quiet in the off season, full hookups, 1/4 of the campground is opened. It’s a short walk to a beautiful beach at Cox Bay. Included in price is hot showers and clean washroom access.
The cost per site increases as you get closer to the beach, it’s not a long walk so save some money getting a site a bit of a distance away, unless you’re needing to carry a surfboard.

Not sure if technically allowed but we had no problem for a night. Noisy intersection, not great neighborhood but worked for a night as we were having service done down the street the next day.

Stayed one night in the parking area with no issues. Just walk over the dune to the beautiful white sand beach. There is a garbage can but no other amenities. Free!

A wonderful place to grab some food and good beer! Family style seating along with a few tables. Outdoor dining is dog-friendly and lovely on a nice day. Large parking area but not good for RV parking.

Snakes and $$$.
150p / pp, kids the same for day visit
Old man with sombrero was firm and unfriendly. He wanted us to park a certain way and certain spot. One of my kids aren’t feeling great so just want to stay with us without using any of the facilities/ getting into the pools. I explained but old man insisted he has to pay as well. So our kid chose to stay in the parking lot outside the entrance.
Eco Toilet (only one opened) has TP
However, we did find FIVE black water snakes in the pool. Some free swimming, some sunbathing by the side of the pool. Found them at the cool pools by waterfalls, none discovered at hot pool.
The mini waterfall at the rear isn’t good for young kids as to get to it you need to do some scrambling. Fun to slide down .

If you are a big rig this is no no. Too tight to turn in.
We met the owner and he told us that his place is closed. He said because of COVID.

Really beautiful views from those camping spots located by the dry riverbed. Open sky toilets and showers like it should always be in the desert. 🤩 We were the only campers and water was working perfectly including hot showers. Remember to bring change for payment. They don't have 100 NAD bills for change... Also beware with the water from the tap. Although they said it's good drinking water from borehole, when we filled our gallons it turned out to be quite brownish and dirty with insects.

Great park up! No parkings signs or restrictions posted. Fairly level harbour parking, public toilets very nearby, and lots of lovely shops and restaurants/pubs. 4G signal, Vodafone 20gbs download, 14gbs upload.

Well organised camp and lodge, with both tented and self camp options. Shaded campsite built for car with rooftop tent shade.
Got here while driving O5. 2 mtrs down washed away. Tried to make a ramp for 2 hours but too risky so had to turn around. can't believe no one put a warning here. So for now we think the O5 is impossible to drive

Huge parking lot at Walmart. If you park close to University Dr, nobody was there. A bit noisy from the street, not so much at night. Didn't ask permission at Walmart as I normally do and didn't get a knock on the door in the middle of the night.
|Walmart 24/7||25.99306, -80.24821|
Very close to town, but LOUD music next door till around 2:00am (there is a club). It's 20 pesos parking per hour till 8 pm, plus 150 pesos for the night. Gate closes at 8 so you have to be there before eight.
we arrived in Tequila on Sunday and it was PACKED. Navigating trough the small streets and crowds of people was a bit stressful after a long drive. The entrance was TIGHT with our camper truck and cars parked in the street making the corner more tight.

Beautiful lake and green nature around. Lots of cool birds if you look for them! In the weekend crowds from Guadalajara come to camp and party, we found them all very nice!
You are not allowed to park next to the lake (only tents can). Instead you have to park in the back of the campsite. Price for 2 persons is 300 pesos per night. Cold showers and restaurant (didn't try).

we could park in the backyard just like we did two years ago. Friendly People. water, electricity, bathrooms. no Wi-Fi. Nice place to stay before crossing the border.
I can only confirm: food prices at the restaurants are too expensive for what you get. I just had lunch here and I cannot recommend. Atmosphere is really nice though and great for a break. Did not stay over night.
