Spent a quiet night here. Soccer games on all 3 fields so we parked by the stadium.

Initially we stayed close to the main river, 1.6km south of Cepita. But warning for severe rainfall made us decide to stay closer to the village. The square is very nice, but just north of the main square, close to the football field, you can stay on a quiet flat spot, just next to the small river. River is not accessible because of steep fortified walls to cope with high water.
|Cepita Plaza||6.80166, -72.99307|
Nice flat area. You could certainly pitch a tent, however you’re not far from the main road. It looks like the spot is just down from the pull-out. No signs or anything posted about parking or camping.
There is some road noise from the street, but it’s not a busy street.
Cheap water refill station / behind the cashier station

Very quiet place, only a few cars pass here daily. You can safely park next to the road, levelled spot not hard to find. There's a wooden bench in front of the lake you can relax on. We had this strip of the beach to ourselves. Lots of food stalls about a 20min walk, 5, 10 mins more to the center of town. You can have your car blessed at the basilica, don't forget to give your ride a hat!

Successful SOAT for three months! Came here with another gringa and we both were able to get insurance for our USA plated vehicles. We waited a long time, then realized just go up to window 5, 6, or 7 when they are open. Took about 5 or 7 minutes after we figured that out. We also were getting it for our spouses, so you can get insurance if you're not the main name on the vehicle. Buen viaje!
Pro tip: free coffee in the vending machine.

Spent a night, super convient since you can get a shower in the morning. Met a local who was curious but very friendly and mentioned some other spots near the water (they're all listed already).
Around midnight a few cars were racing around the lot, seemed like kids joyriding on the weekend. It was quiet for the rest of the night though.

No signs that it’s a Hospedaje, look for the blue building next to the 2 story building - they rent out the rooms. Perfect place before crossing borders. Riders choose bottom rooms inside of secure court yard - you can park right next to room.

Nice grassy aera to camp. Mina and her daughter are very nice. Toilets and showers are clean and there is 24h hot water. Walking to Pyramids is 2.1km.

Amazing place, we spent two days in total peace. Beautiful sunset, Beautiful sunrise just amazing. Amazing desert landscape feeling. Nice places to walk just mind the giant fire ants nest. Highly recommended. Enjoy it and take care of it

I called ahead and was told overnight parking was allowed. Navigating from the interstate to the parking lot was easy. The lot was well lit and there were no unexpected noises during the night. It’s always nice to start the day with a hearty breakfast from Cracker Barrel.
|Cracker Barrel||39.19074, -81.53104|
As described, it’s a big lot to park in but they no longer charge you to park. Still a 3 night max stay. Register your vehicle through security after getting a players card which matches your play for the first $10 and you only need $1 to start playing! The little restaurant inside offers a great breakfast special with the players card. Lots of large screen tvs inside to watch sports and sit at the bar. There is also a rec center across the street that is only $8/day pass to get nice and showered up. I’m super impressed with our stay here!

EDIT: It looks like the land to the right of Balsolmo Rd until you get to Kramer Road is actually private property. Left of the road, and past Kramer Rd is BLM land.
Nice flat pull out off the mining road big enough for a couple vans or a trailer. The mining road is smooth and easily drivable. If the spot is occupied, or you care to venture further, the roads into the desert are endless, especially if you head out towards and past the radar dome. Plenty of places to find solitude.
Had a strong Verizon signal. This spot was extremely windy with 40mph gusts the night I stopped, so fair warning. You might be able to venture in farther and find a more sheltered spot, but I got here at night.

take ave B straight toward water and you've arrived when you see the large concrete star sculpture. lots of art on the beach and in town. worth meandering about to find nooks and crannies of interesting stuff. lots of the art spots are on google maps. ski inn and american legion offer food and beverage (ski inn more predictably open). lots of room. i stayed 3 nights and only had 1 other van for company 1 of the nights. be very careful if you want to drive farther down onto the beach. i saw several vehicles get stuck and have to pay for recovery. can be windy and smell briny....but overall beautiful nature (even if horribly toxically polluted) and quirky art!

We filled our truck camper with water here using a standard water hose fitting. Very convenient. It cost us 140 peso for around 50 gallons. Roads are wide in this area too.

This place was an ABSOLUTE rip off. $1,600 per person. Shower is an extra $200. Expensive food and beverages. No place to throw away trash (they told us to take it with us). There are hundreds of free camping sites all over the beautiful valley.

I tried to use this place but it was not open at 9 am on a weekday. However there was another good lavenderia by the water fill up spot on this road.
No issues driving through on a Saturday. No roadblocks. There were a couple spots where kids had ropes and would ask for money. But nothing intimidating and usually just trying to sell snacks

Tourist toll is now 40 per person and then another 40 per person to enter agua azul.
Worth the cost IMO.

Really enjoyed the stay here. It’s very quiet and the falls were not too busy. It’s very nice waking up here and having the waterfalls to ourselves!

This place is utterly amazing!
We lost a wheel on the road and had to limp it to Chipata. We were recommended this place through a friend and we couldn’t be happier with the service! It was extremely affordable as well.
The owner took the time to talk me through everything that they were doing on our Land Cruiser. They are a Toyota Authorised Service Center and they do amazing work. Our Cruiser is a frankenstein of many different cruisers and he was able to identify all the parts and tell me from which model they were from. His team is highly professional and they do high quality work. They went above and beyond to inspect the rest of the truck and make sure we were totally ok to head to Nairobi.
If you ever need work done on your Toyota in Chipata I cannot recommend them enough!!
FYI- they don’t take credit cards so be prepared to pay with cash.
