Nice little campground. Close to the road but the traffic is not bad so pretty quiet. We stayed 2 nights because it is close to the contrabando trail heads for mountain biking. There are 2 composting toilets and every site has a shade structure and table. Site 15 is close to the river but the others are further away. $12 per site and 1/2 price if you do multiple nights. You can book online or directly at the Barton Warnock center.

Mitsucar is a small parts shop that specialises in mitsubishi and hyundai parts. They supplied me with airfilter, ball joints, bumpstop, steering rod ends and a special reverse switch on the gearbox. Needed for a mitsubishi L300 4wd.

A sudden leap into boondocking

A wonderful free campground on the Natchez trace. Paved roads, paved sites, picnic tables and fire rings.
Stop # 111 .. 13 months of full time life in my motorhome. 18 spots mostly pull through. A bit confusing of a layout but just park near a fire pit and you're in a spot. The best one I found for my 32ft motorhome was the very last pull through. Level and had a good picnic table and fire pit. Nice trail to overlook. Decent bathrooms with running water. Grateful to have free places to park an rv for a few days. Find me on fb for videos and details of everywhere I've been and everywhere I'm going. So far 15 states and over 12000 miles. IOverlander has been such a blessing to help find all these great places ! Group name A Sudden Leap Into Boondocking

Stayed here at night. Guard checked with us as he locked us in. We had asked and got permission to camp out here, even with a tenter addition.
No problems at all, even had four street dogs hanging with our three dogs.
Parking lot could use some love cleaning, we do what we can

Made it up the road in the dry season with a 2006 Sprinter. Quiet, cool, and amazing views. They were tolerant of our dogs, but it required a bit of management to keep their dogs away from ours (one husky and one golden mix weren’t happy about our border collies). Just had to be aware. Worth the drive!

clean but busy spot. Well-lit but didn’t bother us during our stay. On the pricier end, usually about $40 to stay overnight. Great for a spot right on the beach!

we spent one night in the parking lot of the MacDonald. It is no longer possible to go to the land between the Mac Donald and the Max because the land is fenced. we asked the manager of the Mac Donald if it was possible to sleep in the parking lot. He accepted. We ate at MacDo. Night slightly noisy but acceptable for the city.

Um lugar bastante amplo, mas não pareceu muito útil para quem está em motorhome. Não é 24h, não tem banho, banheiro fica dentro da loja de conveniência, loja pequena. Não testamos o Wi-fi.

we went on a Tuesday at noon and they were out of diesel and gasoline. but we said wait 15 to 20 minutes and a delivery truck should be there. 45 minutes later we were fueling up for 6 per liter.

this spot on the corner directly across the street from the station was awesome. we asked for the wash and to spray the used oil for the Salar and that we would be back the next day to clean it off. the van was filthy and they spent maybe 10 minutes washing and and maybe another 10 spraying the oil. I felt like they did a really good job but they did get some on my brakes so be prepared for them to not stop as good afterwards. buuuuut that stupid brake squeal was gone so that was nice. I was expecting 70b but when it came time to pay he only charged us 40. we came back the next day filthy again with salt and they spent about 30 minutes cleaning and drying. it looked better then it has this whole trip. when it came time to pay they asked for 80 this time. we are a large van and I think they did a good job.

not open on a Tuesday when we went to visit. the sign outside says 5 to 9pm for drinks and the kitchen only open from 5:45 to 8:45 but doesn't list the days open.

what a great place! unlike other hotels that let you overland on their property who just see dollar signs, this place is generous and friendly! best shower in Bolivia! you actually have to turn the water temp and pressure down!! after the guests had eaten breakfast they offered us what was left of the continental breakfast. I don't know if they go over the top every time but it was practically a buffet of food still. potable drinking water from the spigot at the front door. there is a tour guide that works here, Claudia I think her name was, that spoke good English and helped us with planning our route through the Salar and the lagunas route. super fast WiFi. dog friendly. no size restrictions but there is only room for one overlander inside the gate and I would imagine if they had guests with vehicles they would ask that you park outside of the gate, which is fine as there isn't anything else out here anyways.

El Nido del Flamenco -20.46802, -66.81613

basically no water left here. we came for sunset and there were at least 30 tour cars fighting over maybe a football field size puddle. we camped like a km to the west, outside of the slushy area, and came back in the morning at like 8 and had it all to ourselves for like an hour.

this is the spot! you can get off the salt and up onto the beach, or go up a bit and you can make it onto the ridge. if coming from the track to the north, aim for the low spot between the two islands and you will see an obvious track. definitely scout this out before attempting! we parked about 200m away and walked the road to the beach. the salt is cracked here and you can see the bottom. the dirt is damp, but firm so we drove onto the island. we are 4 tons so we crashed through the last 5m of salt but it was not muddy this time of year and was able to make it up onto the ridge without issue. you can see sunrise and sunset from the same place.

NE Isla del Pescado, above Salt Flats -20.13288, -67.80887

for being the driest part of the year, still a ton of water. we attempted to get out this way and came across a truck, lighter then ours, that had crashed through the salt. I attempted to help the best I could, and failed, but there was no way I was getting my vehicle involved. very dangerous exit/entrance to the Salar. we turned around and did not exit here.

filled up here for 5 per liter without discussion. even offered to fill up our Jerry cans even though there were several cars waiting. asked if we had a sticker for the window.

same as the last comment, cruising at 80km on most of the dirt sections and then beautiful new 2 lane tarmac. this road is about to be a legit highway one day. however, the section between villa alota and just before the turn off for the lagunas route is terrible! very deep silt holes, some 30cm or more that hide rocks in the road. one section was particularly bad the was like 5km long. if it rains enough to saturate the ground here this could be become impassable without 4x4. at least until they finish construction.

no one here today. gate was open. we camped on the beach within eyesight of this place and didn't see anyone here all day.

didn't want to add another pin, but we camped near the beach on a flat spot between this pin and the toll booth. got here at 3pm and left at 10am and didn't see anyone the whole time.

really nice spot. nice to get out of the wind. nice to see the viscachas if you didn't see them in Machu Picchu. tours do stop here to eat if you didn't guess from the 7 picnic tables made from rocks.

easy pull off to rest if you are taking this route anyways, but definitely not worth the worst section of this road to see this rock if planning on taking the other route.

this is the best place to take a picture of this lake. the other mirador view isn't as good and you don't get any closer to the water via the road.

a sight for sore eyes... and bones... not much less windy then outside of the canyon, but less, and out of eyesight of the road. nice sandy flat spots. definitely a recommended spot!
