Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
Stayed here in January, it was super chill and there was no one around to collect payment. No vendors either. We got snowed on. I have a feeling that these touristy places don't operate consistently in the winter.
HOWEVER, the next morning we drove on down towards Guachochi and saw a TON of roads that led off toward the river and great campsites in the trees. We wish we had have stayed at one of those places. You may or may not be seen from the road in some of those spots, but it's chill out here. There's no one coming to get you, or to collect payment at any time of year.
Happy Adventuring!Report Check-In
Very quiet, and was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness (there are lots of trash cans). Used lake camp as a base to visit Valle de monjes and Hongos. Entrance signed at $40mxn/vehicle. Stayed 2 nights.Report Check-In

Great location to connect with the locals who clean up this place (after Easter as last post)
treats for the kids or buy thier tourist tack and pay the entry. no fishing it's the locals supply store. ! good energy here
Spots are decent. There's a ton of litter, but we kinda just took it as an opportunity to put in some volunteer hours.
Last night we stayed close to these coordinates, but tonight we wanted to go farther up the lake with hopes of less litter and less people. We got less people, at least. And none of the stray dogs, which was a bummer for me! Nah, it's all good
We got the indigenous kids both times. They're super cute. We didn't buy anything, but we did give them pesos anyway. Not sure how that stacks up to child labor ethics... yo no se.Report Check-In
Amazing place to spend the night. When we arrived at the lake, we drove up a path that leads around the right side of the lake and found a “camping” area with lots of BBQ pits. A couple nice flat spots overlooking the lake.
Nobody here to charge the entrance tickets, but we bought plenty from the local children selling arts and crafts.
Also it’s a good 2.5 hour hike around the lake. It’s bigger than it initially looks!Report Check-In
Paid the 40p to enter but decided to continue on, through the park on a dirt road to Valley of Monks. Our truck is 3.6m tall & touched a few branches. But no problems. Lots of cholesterol rushed to sell us their wares. Tough because I couldn’t buy from them all.Report Check-In
Camping area next to Laguna Arareko under pine trees. Entrance fee is 40 Peso p.P., no camping fee. Toilets are closed. Stray dogs around. Nobody but some indigenious there, quiet.Report Check-In
A great place. By the lake is nice, but it looked like some kids were setting up to party, so we moved on down the forest trail for a peaceful spot. There's plenty of space and lovely areas to find your own down the trail towards Valle de los Monjes. 20 pesos pp to enter, no charge for camping overnight.Report Check-In
Very quiet place at night. Entrance fee for the Arareko Region is now 40 pesos per person. Camping costs an extra 15 pesos, but they didn’t charged us for the camping. The tourist police passed by to check if everything is okay. We asked them information about the roads through the canyons. They were very friendly and helpful. 1 spoke very well English, his name is Andy.Report Check-In
Lots of space for camping. You can search yourself a spot, there are fire pits all over. You can rent a boat for 30MXN/30min or 60 for 1h. You can try to negotiate.Report Check-In
25$ entry fee per person, 15$ camping fee. Entry fee does not include Valle de Monje, that’s another 15$ per person (all in pesos :))

Tarifs written are: 25 pesos per adult and 15 pesos per child and 20 pesos for camping. But they make us paid only 2 adults, free for our daughter and camp. So we have paid a total of 50 pesos.They also give you a hand drown map with all trails to valley de Los monjes and Hongos, rukiraso waterfalls, cueva sebastian. Your entrance tickets give you free access for one day to all thoses points of interest !Report Check-In
Thanks for finding this great spot guys! On the hill at your right, behind the boatshack you will find pittoilets. They are always open. Some indian children tried to sell some jewellery. Buying something (already from 10 pesos) make them happy. The well behaving children learned also to use the frase: "Tango hambre" / I'm hungry. We didn't feed them, but send them home to their parents for food. No worries, they also understand the word: "no". We stayed for 2 days.Report Check-In
