500 pesos per night. Plenty of space between the palpas so you don’t feel like you’re camping on top of your neighbor. Clean bathrooms with flushing toilets and cold showers. No water pressure in the shower but it gets the job done. Host family is super friendly and available if you have a question. No wifi available here or at the tienda when we were here. Beach is rocky but we had no problems launching our paddle boards. We will definitely stay here again.

We were the only ones camping here! They're still recovering from the hurricane. The bathrooms were clean but we didn't use them. It's a very nice campground with palapas and a nice host, Rafael, who, like other said before speaks excellent English.

Rustic spot on the south of the bay. Place is open, Rafael is here. Speaks excellent English very friendly. His pup Chapo is adorable. I got stuck in some leftover hurricane sand right away but another camper pulled me out. Then I saw a rattlesnake the owner caught earlier in the morning. $500 pesos per night as previously stated. Flush toilets and shower and non-potable water. A spartan but otherwise nice spot. No cell.

sitting on the beach right now. one other camper. it's sooooo quiet. waves are coming in while I sip a cold beer 10m from the water. showers, flush toilets and the host Rafael is so nice! great English. yep $500 for night. but really are you that tight that an extra 150 or so is too much. totally worth it. watch the taco stand, it's good but they will defiantly charge you no local rates for them🤣

A month ago we were here and the owner was having medical issues he was dealing with. Rafael is a wonderful person. We hope he gets well and reopens soon.

Report Check-In

We didn’t have a nice experience with the owner, he wanted to charge 500 for the night + 200 extra for the dump. For the price, the few amenities and the fact that he was really rude (we were speaking in Spanish, not even in English), we left.

Lovely place. The owner is a pleasure to talk to (he speaks very good English) 350 pesos per night. Trash cans, showers, flush toilets (bring your own paper).

Report Check-In

We love this place. It may seem a little pricey to some but for us it is worth it for the views and how quiet it is. Sure it’s basic but charming. Rafael is a good man and we liked so much we came back and stayed four days from the 26th thru 29th. We hope he is doing well.

Wonderful site to camp away from the road and larger RV parks. Sign off of the 5 directs you to the campground. Good, gravel road with no problems until you get to the campsite and then there are some sandy spots, but not bad. Rafael came right over to greet us along with his charming dog, Chapo. Multiple large palapas, cold shower and nice, flushing toilets. Quiet, beautiful views.

350 pesos a night. Beautiful and quiet. One sandy spot close to park and a little inside park. Fast with momentum will get you through it. Decent bathrooms with running water.

Report Check-In

This place is expensive for the service offered but it is the only RV dump in the area. It is a very scenic spot with a great beach walk. A few notes of clarification. There IS non potable water available to fill your tanks - just ask. You have to move your rig away from your site to get access. The access to the park has some soft sandy bits and it's easy to bog down. We dug our 22 ft C Class in pretty quickly but the host was very quick to come and sort it out. Showers are cold but bearable and very clean. We probably won't return unless we need to dump.
Not because we had anything against the place, just a bit to pricey for Mexico.

great stay. the owner is away and the host is a lovely Danish couple in a converted school bus. nice washrooms and showers. fabulous beach 500Mex for 2ppl and a dog in a smaller trailer. Road in is easy. deep sand was present in parts of the camp but in fairness it has been windy and sand moves around. the hosts are keeping up as best they can and there is help if a 2wd gets stuck. had no issues in our truck and trailer. highly recommend.

Sandy beach with palapas a few kms south of town. 500 pesos. Clean toilet/shower block. Cold water only. The owner is in the hospital so the campground is being managed by a friendly Danish family in a converted bus. He is expected to return soon.

Unholy winds made it impossible to do much here. Beautiful beach, decent wifi (we were told it was included in the fee but later asked for 100 pesos by guests of the camp hosts?), dogs welcome, really clean bathrooms. A little pricey at $25 with no hot water, no electricity, and broken palapas with no shelter from the winds.

Nice but very expensive.
The Vue is nice but palapas are very closed from each others. Very windy. A lot of noisy dogs.
Very clean toilet and bathroom with no hot water.
No water to fill the tank. Dump station OK.
For me you pay 500 pesos for Flush toilets and dump station
Wi-Fi : 100 pesos but not working well

Nous y avons passé une nuit très agréable sur la mer. Calme et beau. Sanitaires propres pas d’eau chaude.

Lovely place. It was being run by Karina and her family while Rafael was away. They were doing a great job. Bathrooms clean and running water, but no hot water. Very windy and the wind shelters on the palapas have been taken by the latest hurricane. Karina was nice enough to let us use the porch of the vacant cabana to hide from the wind. $500mxn for a palapa on the beach. Slow wifi, no cell signal.

Stayed 1 night, $500p , nice clean bathrooms. Camp hosts were super cool!

Great spot! Rafael is very friendly and speaks perfect English.
Clear warm water, clean beach that goes on and on in both directions and amazing sunset and sunrises.

Big shower and toilet building with 5 shower stalls and 5 toilets in the womens section, and the same for the men. The cleanest and nicest showers and toilets I have seen in all of the places we visited in Mexico, and also the states , it’s great! Flushing toilets.

We loved it and stayed a week. It’s 500 pesos pr day, plus 100p for Wi-Fi. He will negotiate the price if you stay longer than a few days.

Very nice host! Totally empty. Palapas little bit destroyed cause of hurricane few days before but very beautiful place!

Nice. As of 3 pm were the only people. Really pretty beach but windy. 500 pesos plus 100 to get wifi password. We’re van camping but nice to have the wind shelter to hang out on the beach because otherwise it’s blowing too hard. All in all, not bad for a first night into Baja stop.

New bathrooms not ready, in the Mexican way it wil take at least a few more months. 500 pesos is much for this spot. We left. Traveled 16 km further to the north to La Poma. Beautiful spot better organized with nice restaurant for 300 pesos.

Awesome camping spot! $500 pesos per night for an extra big palapa (some have walls for wind protection), fire pit, and grill right on the beach. They have wifi for a fee, flushing toilets, and cold showers. It’s really clean with trash bins at each site, a bin for used cooking oil, and minimal bugs. They are about to finish (3-4 days) construction on a brand new bathroom building with multiple showers and toilets, with more improvements planned. Locally owned and operated. The family lives on-site. Felt very safe and they’re very welcoming. Rafael speaks English and cares a lot about his campground. Sandy beach with some smooth rocks and tide pools at low tide. Beautiful views of the entire bay. We saw baby whale sharks swimming around just off-shore! Would definitely stay again.

Heading to punta final going northbound, No reception. Headed north on dirt road off 5, found this gem. Pulled up at dusk, only two other campers. About a dozen palapas, woke in the morning to a great beach, rocky and a lot of shells but secluded. Other 2 campers left early, we had the whole place to ourself. Owners were awesome, they also sell firewood here.
$20 usd for the night , firewood $100pesos. Flushing toilet, shower but cold water. We would stay here again.

Sites right on the beach. Clean flush toilet, cold shower, amazing sunset, stars and sunrise. Dog loved fetch on the beach.

Other reviews are pretty accurate. About a dozen round palapas without side walls, 50 gal drum garbage can at each site, outhouse buildings with concrete floors and actual flushing toilets, shower buildings (didn't use), no cell/wifi, paid $300MX for two people and a van, no one else here (Aug 2, 2021). Woman that greeted us was friendly and so was the pack of (flea ridden) dogs they live here, one decided to camp out and beg but he was friendly and didn't try his luck much. Beach was sandy with tide rocks and then after 5-10m it's mostly sand and great for a dip. Road in is gravel with just a few sand patches, primarily one right in camp we had to speed up to get through, other than that was easy to get to with the sign on the road.

Nice place, friendly owner (Rafael). Clean, safe and quiet. Easy access from highway, close to Rancho Grande store and Alfonsina’s.

We stayed here for two nights. The first night I fired up my generator and it died. Rafael came over and I asked if he knew a mechanic in town. He said that he could fix it. He stayed up until 3:00 AM fixing my generator and had it back at my camp at 6:30 the next morning. He is amazing and such a nice guy. The place was really clean. Mama dog had eight puppies. which was so fun to see them playing and having fun. this will be a regular stop!

Just spent one night here, $25 for 2 of us, large palapa, toilets, and shower. According to owner, they are booked\/sold out every weekend thru March-April 2021. We were there alone for until around 3 PM when the border town folks all piled in. Beach is sand then rounded walk-able rocks at the high tide level. Entrance is about 2KM south of town of the main HWY.

We loved this place. Started out at Gonzaga Bay, took a walk down the beach, discovered Beluga, and immediately moved. Clean, friendly, great views. $20 per night, but we thought it was worth it, cold showers, flush toilets. No problem getting there with 2 WD. They shared freshly caught fish with us for no charge. Nice place for long walks on the beach. One other camper there. Stayed 2 nights and don’t know why it’s not more popular. Will definitely go back.

Gorgeous spot, and super peaceful! Nice camp with big spaces, big palapas and lots of fresh white paint. Palapas have thatched roofs, but only a couple have wind protection. Plenty big for hanging a hammock or two. Outhouse style buildings that have flush toilets and cold showers. Garbage cans and fire rings. A bit of soft sand getting down to the beach, but guy working here said if you have any trouble, he'd help you out. He can sometimes get you fresh fish or clams. Maps.me couldn't figure out a way to get here, but there's a small sign at the turnoff from highway. Asked 370 pesos, gave me 300 for just one person. No cell service or wifi.

o.k. for a night, very simple but frindly people, camp is right on the beach.
negotiable price.

Isolated but with beautiful view campground. Outhouse closets with 1 flush toilet in each. Some better then others. Cold showers in similar small closet structures. Palapas are big and spaced decently apart. Could hear coyotes at night. Nice local family running the camp. We were only ones here, might feel different with more campers around. Rocky beach, but a little walk down there is a sandy beach. We paid m$300 after negotiating down from $380.

Standard campsite with palapa's that aren't fully enclosed. It appears they are doing some work at this place. Flushing toilets and cold showers. I would recommend staying at a camp just north of this spot. It appears to be nicer.
