As natural or untouched as termas can get I think. No swimming pools at different temperatures, no trash, no empanadas for sale.
No pics in the post and don't Google it. Just go. :)
The access road from the Peñón Fiambalá road is OK but turns into a proper 4x4 trail starting from the 4th sharp hairpins. Not worth the risk to damage your rig imo. We parked at the 4th and hiked the rest of the way. Ca 30-45min.

Hot springs piped into private bathing rooms can be used as a bath or shower. 30 pesos for non locals (not sure if that is for a fixed amount of time or open ended).
Also laundry on site (hand washing, and machines, hang dry) popular with Tue locals.
There may be a communal/recreational pool/spring, I did not check.
Reached by taking the exit for Ejido Uruapan and driving through town into the countryside. There are signs. Many vineyards visible in the hills, market in town sells local wine at a reasonable price 80 pesos per bottle and fresh local cheese (fresco, cojita, or oaxaqueno) at good prices.

Stayed at Sandy Beach campground. I have a lakefront site for $35 and it’s very very nice. The water is warm and it’s very quiet here. Surprise there’s not more people boating. They have showers that are $1.25 for seven minutes. I would come back.

I didn’t stay at Beard’s Bluff Park, but I wanted to. I checked more into the place and heads up, if you’re planning to stay a Friday or Saturday night you must book for two nights. (If you’re visiting 3/1-12/31)

40 dollars a night. Did not look worth it to us. We stayed at the highway rest stop.

Indeed a nice place, very friendly people and interesting art (negotiable to reasonable prices)
|Tengenenge Artist Community||-16.73066, 30.94410|
We went to the old one and the community trust guys said it is not working anymore and led us to the new one here. Locals say it’s drinking water, runs pretty clear. Be careful when opening and closing it as the tap is tied with a waterproof tape and you need to tie it back so it doesnt leak

No card available anymore. Small gas station.
We just stopped for having lunch in the nice restaurant. Food was fresh made and very delicious.
quiet, easy access, good for 2wd great place to stop on the way in/out of Iquique
As per the description. just yo add that they charge NAD215 for kids from 5 years old, so our camping for 2 adults and 2 young kids set us back almost NAD1000 for what is still camping....

Nice place to spent a night close to the beach. No amenities. Very quiet.
Stretch of road that could accommodate a couple of RVs, but I just stayed overnight in my car. A nice grassy area for a picnic or pets. I got good wifi here.

Free dump with spigot near large vertical tank. Unsure if the water is potable (I'm not chancing it.)

Pulled into this spot for a minute. It's an overgrown gravel patch right off the highway. Too close to the highway for my taste. I decided to stay at the rest stop a few miles down the road.
|Unicorn Beach||39.55229, -123.42497|
Stayed from 20:00-10:30 overnight without issue in my Travato. I think I was the only campervan, some other people pulled in and slept in their cars. There are big signs that say to the effect "No overnight stays or camping." Closeish to the highway but still pretty quiet.

Tranquille pendant la nuit et fréquenté le jour par les amateurs de vélo de montagne.
Same as a description, Quiet during the night and a lot of mountains bikers during the day.

This is a actually a picnic area. However, the was an RV setup right near the pit toilet, which was very clean, BTW. After seeing all the sites with views were taken down at the campground, I came back here and parked in a very short spur just before the parking area, and right on the edge of the canyon. Pretty private. The only noise here is some equipment rumbling down in the valley. Not annoying, just there. Another van came and parked in the lot. Obviously, this area is used for camping. Was great for an overnight stay. Be prepared for plenty of washboard roads on the way back to this area! So, don’t be in a hurry.

It is abreally nice place. There is a simple bathroom with toilet and warm shower and a quincho with a sink. The ranger is very friendly. We stayed three days because it was raining. It was no problem at all.

I did my first bikepacking trip here, I paid $5 to be allowed to camp. There are bathrooms, and a place to put a fire to cook. Away from the city and colder.

Bon pour bonbonnes de propane de VR ou véhicules. Pas pour les bonbonnes de 20 lbs. Très bon prix, moitié le prix de l'essence. Plus vous pouvez obtenir une carte pour remplir à tout temps.
Great place to fill your RV or vehicle propane tank. Not for small protable tanks. Price is good, half the price of gasoline at the pump. You can set up a card to allow you to fill up anytime, anyday.
