No supermarket inside. Closest one is 8 min walking.
Stayed for the night with 3 other van/cars. Heard a lot of delivery trucks, but otherwise great spot. Didn’t get the wifi from the parking. There are signs at the other end of the parking but not this part. We were at the intersection of Railroad St and 5th.
Basic hotel in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Wifi is slow, AC, tv etc. Good shower and bed.
No window in the room.

Great spot to spend the night. Good level parking lot and quiet after dark. One other visitor parked next to us. Any sized unit can park here.
|Dobson trail parking lot
Excellent facility. Easy to find and easy to park. We used our own hose to refill the water. Highly recommend.

Bustling little local cafe. Good coffee, yummy breakfast burritos and biscuits and gravy. They have wifi but super slow this morning!
|Rise and Shine cafe
No one bothered us. Not a 24 hr Walmart though
My car is a sprinter van and it's fine.
|Hostal Cabana La Isla
Beautiful gravel road through amazing landscapes close to the mountains. The gravel road on it self is doable with 2x4. The problem is that there are a view crossings through water (from the mountains. There was one crossing where we thought we couldn’t cross with our 2x4 campervan so we took a path to the right and finally came back on this road. In rain saison we doubt if it’s possible with a 2x4
|Gravel road with great views but some obstacles for 2x4
Just a little off the paved road to spend the night with amazing view. Not sure what’s in the lake but if you drive down you’ll eventually reach the lake.
|Red lake and Mountain View
surprise realy nice spot Almost direct to the beach.
this is the last parking on the road to the beach.
in daytime locals come and go but not bussy.
not the best place for a swim.
then you can better park at one of the parking's you will pass to this spot.
but there it is realy bussy.
locals are friendly and there is no problem to stay overnight here.
in the evening some runners and bike rider pass by.
further the sound of birds and sea.
nobody seem's to care about youre stay.
great for a overnight, some will like it and stay longer.

Was turned back at the gate today saying ‘no camping’, so apparently camping is not open in September.
|Golcuk Nature Park.
Easy access and very clean sanidump. Fee is $5 to pay at the registration desk
|Denali Campground Registration
Nice campground, for tents caravans etc
Laundry room with washer-dryer. ATM and coin exchange machine. Free WiFi, toilets, and electrical outlets for charging our appliances. We recommend it!
This is a large wooded area just behind the seafront. When I arrived at 15:00 hours it was full of locals and I didn’t see another foreign vehicle. I asked the locals, the jet ski business and the cafe on the sea front if it was ok to stay the night. They all said yes and I was offered a key to the cafe toilet. I tried campsites before arriving here but they were either stupid money, or I had to get my kit off and expose my nads to all on a nudist site! Arrive with everything you need or use the cafe in front of the Hotel Materada which is priced for locals
|Materada sea front
Quiet place despite the train (11:30 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.), a few children in the evening until 7:00 p.m., parked in the shade.

Well worth visiting. The ruins are really beautiful and the history very interesting. 500ks entry + 50ks transaction fee pp entry (foreigner) but no cash or card so you will have to get someone to pay via mpesa. There are guides around who will help with that.
We were guided by Alphas, a Gede Ruins Community Guide. He was really excellent (we are english speakers) with a wealth of information about the place, and had a good sense of humour so made the whole visit really fun and interesting. One of the best guides we have had in East Africa! He is on whatsapp at +254729289507 otherwise might be on offer at the gate on arrival.
We were told by the ticket office a guide price should be 500ks plus more if deserved. Guided walk was only for the old city walk.
I was parked in this square for about a month, a quiet place with local people. In the surrounding area there are several hostels at good prices.
estuve parqueado en esta plaza alrededor de un mes, lugar tranquilo con gente local. a los alrededores hay varios hostales a buen precio.
|Plaza José Olaya
There is room for multiple vehicles here. It's a parking lot to the start of the park and trailhead. Large lot, at least 8 cars/vans/trucks would fit, not suitable for big rigs or vehicles with a tow. One side of the lot is sloped, but the other is mostly level. 3 bars of inconsistent Verizon here. No ''no overnight parking'' shown anywhere. It's near a river, but it is hard to see or hear through the thick foliage. I stayed last night, not one person came through after dark on a Sunday night. Super dark, super quiet.
|State park parking lot
New place. Behind grey building, corner of Main Street and Hebrew Avenue. Between town hall and Irving gas station. 3 washing machines and 3 dryers. Price : 2x1$ lonnies. Very clean.
This is away from the crowds. It’s a bit rutted to get in, but my spot is super flat. I have a high-top cargo van (Nissan) and it was fine. My Starlink has a bit of an obstructed view, but it works. Plus, T-Mobile works well at night to stream.
|Home for the Week
Yvette was an amazing host! It’s a great spot to stay thats up in the hills of filandia. Willys jeep will come get you if you want to explore the town. Her hostel is adorable and we used her kitchen multiple times to cook our breakfast and dinner. She charges COP 28,000 PP (half for our 5 year old son) she also offers horse tours I did a 2.5 hour tour with her ( COP 120,000) and it was amazing!! I highly recommend her tours it was definitely a highlight of our trip to filandia!
