We had a huge field next to the ranch all to ourselves with the sound of a waterfall as our sleep soundtrack. Nice clean toilets and the showers were comfortable, about the same temp as the air. The 8(!) waterfalls were outstanding and the family has put a lot of time and effort to build trails into the very steep canyon including a four story circular staircase made of metal and anchored into the bedrock and a suspension bridge. The pool at the waterfall on the river is magic! There is a pond (not really a pool) at the ranch that has fantastic frog life at night. Check it out! I couldn’t find an outlet to plug anything into. 4000/person for camping and half price for a child. Hiking the waterfalls was 13,000 for the three of us.

I'm blown away by how cool of a little town Ajo is and how stunningly beautiful the entire area is. I'd gotten a tip to come down this way, but was skeptical til I saw it for myself. It's one of the most beautiful places in the Sonoran desert without a doubt. And Ajo is a beautiful little arts town. This particular spot has a few places you could choose from with great views of the mountains and lush desert greenery in a forest of saguaros. Also I did have TMobile service here that was spotty during the day and worked fine after sunset. Definitely a place worth visiting and I will likely return in the future.

1500 ARS pp. Great view to the Fagnano lake from the parking spot. Clean bathrooms with hot shower. Common area with gas stove to cook (no pots or pans), perfect shelter from the heavy winds. The room is covered from floor to ceiling with messages from previous visitors. Really good place!

Excellent place to spend the night. Absolutely quiet after 5 pm, clean toilets open during the day, several stalls with good and cheap food from around 7 am to 4 pm - you might also eat at the restaurant of the hotel, very good, but quite expensive, until 7.30 pm

Very nice place and the best you will get in this area! Next to the Highway 101 but in the night quiet enough for good sleep. We didn’t hear the train in the night only the waves from the ocean. A lot of other vans, felt safe :)

Paved road turned into nice dirt one heading up hill. Just a little snow but no 4wd needed.
Campsite #1 looked the most level but it was occupied so we stayed at #2.
Had to use a few blocks to get level.
Great snow capped Mountain View’s all around.
Great for a quick night while passing through Winnemucca

I'm not sure if I went to this exact place. This corner on the market has a couple different folks with sewing machines.

I brought my motorcycle cover to repair some rips. It took over an hour while I waited and the price was C400, which I thought was more than it should have been.

Quite a pretty rest stop to wake up to. Passenger area fits a larger van and is relatively quiet for the local. Men’s bathroom had toilet seats and was actually quite clean.

Water pumps shut off due to leak. I think one is potable after talking to the attendant but you should confirm.

rare combination of BLM with hiking trails, petroglyph, good spots and cell service! the road in is in good shape. there are a lot of big rocks sticking out of the dirt. it has been raining recently so the plant life is lush. I actually came here because google showed a trail head to petroglyphs. there is no signage for the trails so it is an adventure. I drove to the end of the main road and found some trails that did have a petroglyph. there were a few campsites close to the mountain and the trails but no cell signal. i knew I had signal coming in and then I realized why folks were clustered closer to the road. I was able to find perfection away from the cluster and close to the trails with decent 4 bars 4g verizon with a booster. I found more trails following side roads to the mountain. Got back to my van just as the rain started. perfect day. it rained all night and I woke to crisp air and new smells for the doggy.

Well maintained facility. Bathrooms and showers are awkwardly placed for overlanders but they have a nice cleaning station there at campsites. Honestly got no sleep, bring earplugs because there are parties going on in the surrounding areas until 3 in the morning. Was made to feel like if we didn’t spend money on food or drinks there that they really did not want us there. Was asked multiple times if we are gonna buy drinks and food. When I responded that we had our own it got real uncomfortable. I was quoted 10000 shillings for laundry and at the end they charged us 30000 shillings. If your gonna increase the amount atleast let us know so we have the option to decline. Also shared some coffee with other guests who already paid for the pot of coffee and was charged for that as well. When I needed ice for our drinks that we purchased from them we also had to supply our own water and run the ice machine. So all in all was a little disheartening.

Great place 1 block away from the river Tigre. Stood with our Land Cruiser in a shadow garden and could use the bathroom of one room. We could also use the washing machine. Very clean. Friendly people. Could use power. Paid 5.000 ARS/night (2 people & car). A lot of pubs and restaurants are in walking-distance. Too big trucks may have a problem to drive into the garden.

A room for 2 costs 15.000 ARS incl. breakfast.

Free and painless registration. Office hours are currently 9-5pm. The park itself closes at 8pm. We did not ask about camping in the park.

We got in just after dark and arose a few of the rangers. They welcomed us to stay the night in the designated parking lot right outside the check-in building, no problem. We did not see a sign indicating that sleeping here isn’t permitted either. Bathrooms were unlocked in the evening!

Ample parking in front of a beautiful Church (free) quiet place except for the belt of the church bell. Internet free but weak.

Fabulous, clean park. Great views. Hosts are great.
Cellular service was not good.
There are walk in sites and an overflow lot. On line reservations as well. All electric sites were booked when we reserved. Very inexpensive to book. $10. Plus a $4. Reservation fee. A bargain!
Thank you.
Highly recommend if you are going to White Sands National Park.

We filled water a couple times at Malaquite Campground. The Campground was full but there were 4 dump stations and water. Clean, nice area. Close to the Malaquite Visitor Center (get National Park passport stamps there if needed for Padre).

Wonderful food and people! This place appears on Google as Park Cafe but is actually called Cafe la Guerita and you don’t want to miss it! They specialize in birria and make all kinds of dishes with and without it. We stopped in for some chilaquiles and it was one of our best culinary and service experiences in Baja. Luz is a true chilaquile artist!! And her husband Eduardo is beyond kind and welcoming. We got delicious birria chilaquiles with salsa rojo and they also happily prepared vegetarian chilaquiles with fried egg, mushrooms and salsa verde. Chef’s kiss! The flavors and presentation are next level, the prices are good and you’ll feel at home here. Make sure to tell Luz and Eduardo you found them on here, they’re well traveled themselves and excited to host Overlanders! They speak excellent English but this is also a great place to practice your Spanish. By far our favorite breakfast, service and conversation we’ve had in Baja.

Had a Dr's appointment next door, so I paid the $30 pesos to park and asked if we could stay the night. The person said no problem! A little bit of road noise but otherwise a super peaceful night of sleep.

Very pretty spot on the coast. It’s reasonably flat. Some amount of garbage, but we’ve definitely seen worse. There was only one other camper van nearby so it was nice and quiet.
