If you drive direction Oman this is the last proper fuel station until the aldrees station close before the border (650km)
Easy boarder, took us 1.5h both directions.

Campers and vans parked here and appears to be good for overnight. I haven’t tested it out but want to mark it as a potentially good place. There are no signs. Taco truck until 8 pm

Nice location but our campsite was absolutely disgusting. I mean literal human shit covered with paper towels. Trash everywhere. Absolutely disgusting.

Lugar lindo e tranquilo, fomos recebidos por um casal maravilhoso Dona Nena e seu Churupita que já está aqui a algum tempo.

Still appears open and free. Two unhoused folks were sitting directly on the edge of the sani dump station when we pulled up. We started to use the site, but the folks were displeased and we felt a bit unsafe so we abandoned and left.
Take caution to look for needles, glass, etc if using this dump station. Otherwise looks like a well maintained site.

Posto policial, não fomos parados, mas aparenta ser um local tranquilo.
Local na beira da estrada, protegido do vento. Pode-se passar a noite caso não se tenha opção durante a estrada, vale lembrar que o local se encontra em um mini cemitério.
Mas nesta estrada deserta, ventosa, não se tem muita opção, então vale a pena para.
Caso a localização não esteja 100% precisa, é logo após o posto policial sentido Neuquén.
Espero ajudar quem precise.

Local muito bom, proprietário seu Milo muito atencioso.

Lovely spot to sleep in the rain in 13 mile woods. Had few bars Verizon.

I traveled all the way through Mexico from the north to the south. The two times I was stopped at a checkpoint were five minutes after I entered the country and this one, five minutes before leaving. Quick and painless. No concerns. A minute later, I was headed to the border.
Entered Guatemala from Mexico. At Guatemala immigration, was told I had to go back to Mexico to pay their exit tax... or I could pay a tax to the Guatemala official. I chose to go back to Mexico. Back on the Mexican side, I was asked about my TIP for my bike. I never had one as when I entered Mexico from the US, they never even stopped me... just waved me through. So now, I had to fill out a TIP, cancel it 30 seconds later, pay 687 pesos... and I was out of Mexico.
Back in Guatemala, I had to have my passport, bike registration and some other papers photocopied but had to go with a kid on his motorbike to copy them at his shop... and pay him 500 pesos even though there was a photocopier behind the Guatemalan official.
Then there was the disinfection of my bike which cost more money. Pretty sure I got scammed but I'm in Guatemala... woo-hoo!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
