This quarry is vast and several roads provide access. The place is quiet, soldiers patrol the area because there is a prison on the other side of the road. We asked the soldiers if they could sleep here, they agreed.
Hotel with everything you need to sleep and take a hot shower.
I checked two other hotels and they also were charging the same rate as Hotel Guox... 200 Queztales. Pretty steep for Guatemalan standards. Wifi was useless until I got the front desk guy to log me into his staff(?) wifi.... then it was great. Warm shower, AC worked fine when the town had electricity, which was most of the time. No blankets, just a flat sheet. 5 gallon jugs of water that they let me fill my bottles with. Parking is available but not secure... just in a carport. I was on the third of at least four floors... be prepared to walk a few steps.
Gem of a site located right off I70. It’s on the north side of the highway, exit at mile marker 147, if you are heading East bound there is a dirt median you can use to cross over to the N side and get on the dirt road to this site. If you’re heading west, keep your eyes out, it’s a dirt road right past a hill and mile marker 147. There’s a gate to open, remember to close it behind you. After you cross the wash, you’ll see a trail on the right, this leads to a few camp sites, and most have some trees for shade. In early September we had a warm afternoon but it cooled off nicely for sleeping. Minimal bugs, lots of bats to watch flying over you at dusk. With calm wind there’s a faint sound of highway noise but not bad. One other person spent the night here, but we couldn’t even see them from our site.
Go explore black dragon canyon and check out the pictorgraphs! Don’t leave your own modern graffiti though.
Would definitely stop here again.
Might need 4wd to cross the wash, or just good driving skills. Definitely would need 4wd if it gets wet.

Perfect spot, amazing view. Many other vans. Went there with a Westfalia.

One of the few places along the trail where you can comfortably camp right up to the rivers edge. It was very tranquil.
|Valley camp spot
After a few minutes of gravel road, open the barrier on the left. After another short path, you will reach the spot behind a final barrier. You arrive at the region's ornithological reserve. It's an incredible place, where local teams study biodiversity and owl populations. Take the time to speak with the teams and discover their work. A large hiking trail of more than 5 kilometers allows you to explore the reserve. Take mosquito repellent.
|Beaverhill bird observatory
Nothing to be found. We were informed by locals that the hotspring is gone/closed.
They didn’t want us to stay in the parking lot, so we got a room. It ended up storming horribly that night so it ended up working out. Prices for rooms ranged from I think 5,000-8,500 niara, but the upper end included AC and such. Had hot water, flushing toilet, and electricity most the time and was decently clean. Food was only ok but was good enough for tired travelers. Good enough for a night.
The high restrictions is 4 m. I passed today with my 3.70m high truck.

Road was steep at first but leveled out after the turn and was in good condition. Good service and nice size spot to park and turn around at the top probably about half a mile tops.
|Cell tower hill
This was a great place to park, very quiet and felt safe. Breakfast was 3.50, showers 3 pp, parking overnight for free.
While there is officially no overnight parking / camping in the entire Tahoe basin this was a wonderful place to spend a night or two. I spoke to the park host who said the City / county may be putting up more visible signs he understands that sometimes you just need a safe place to spend the night. thank you! My rig is 23.5 ft and I have a motorcycle rack on the back so 25' long and I fit in a spot nicely by backing in where there was plenty of overhang without disturbing the vegetation. pay attention to the park fees depending on the day of the week however if you're just going in for a quick look or to use the bathroom I didn't see anybody collecting the fees perhaps there was a box and I didn't notice. there are also several porta potties on the grounds in other areas. If this spot isn't available, I noticed a couple of RVs and cars parked overnight along the parallel parking lane on the lake. I similarly noticed people parallel parking overnight along the west side of Lake Tahoe South of Tahoe City. Good luck!

Very unexpected negative experience here.
|Andes Lodge Peru Yanama
Cool little spot 25 minutes from Moab, the road in is paved 40mph. Several spaces with fire pits available, could fit big rigs in certain spots. Great att service, awesome views of sunsets & plenty of cool wind blowing around.
A very very nice Campground. Friendly staff, enough space for privacy, very quiet even with the train.
|Johnston Canyon Campground
I had one whole side of the lot to myself for a one night stay. The only issue was some kid came rolling through around 3:30a.m. with the subs booming in the trunk. No big deal. No other issues.
|Manzanita Rest Area
quiet place with a bit of breeze to cool down. otherwise very remote with nothing around with salt all around u. Do NOT drive onto the salt flats. it's soft ground. we got stuck at the edge as we started driving in. stay on the track and u will be ok.

Museum on the history of Bolivia's independance. There are several rooms which shows different moments of the history of Bolivia.
|Casa de la libertad
Nice spot, sites are all paved so good and level. There is water at all the non-tent sites, very clean bathrooms, no power at the individual sites but power at the group areas. The road is quite busy and noisy but it becomes white noise. There is a train that passes through, we heard it twice in the evening at around 7 & 10 pm and once in the morning around 6:30am.
|Spanish Fork River Park
Very dangerous place. Policemen came during the night and asked for money and Food. We didn’t obey and they came Back when We were asleep and stole Food by the open window and broke the mosquito window with a knife. Then they put a chair in front of our window bed and filmed us naked in our bed. We made a report at the police station. IT is safer to sleep in Town.
There is a small 100m track next to the bridge that lead to the river. It’s not far from the road but there is very little traffic.
|By the river
Dormimos 3 noites no estacionamento ao lado da loja. Lugar seguro e tranquilo, com Wi-Fi, ponto de água, luz e banheiros.
very nice spacious area, rigs of all sizes find a place. open range area, some cows and their calves came visiting. logging area, but nothing going on when I was here. had some rain, ground gets a bit muddy, need to do some mopping. faint train noise but otherwise very quiet. cell signal is weak and fading in and out. would definitely come again

|wide turn around
Tap water next to the highway. It's clean and the water pressure is good.
Wow, increible lugar. Playa para acampar gratis, super tranquila, se puede nadar y hacer fogatas. Me quedé 4 noches. No es necesario 4x4.
very nice place! awesome sunsets over the lake & mountains! you can swin (eventhough the water is pretty warm in the first 20cm and underneath freezing cold and in some parts there is a lot of rotten plant stuff inside, but the water is really clear). but you wont be for yourself, the location by now is very well known, every evening a couple of buses come and park there for the night. but there is place for like approximately 6 cars, no problem. drive towards the restaurant and when you can already see it take the lil off-road track towards your left. there is a nice free drinking water tap from deep down the lake in front of the restaurant and the restaurant has wifi and okay food! expect a lot of funny animals around you (we had sheep's, pigs, cats dogs and ducks visiting our rig, but they weren't there all the time so no worries). have a great stay
