Description

This campground is a little bit further out of the town, about 800 meters past Kiki's campground. It is much nicer than the other two campgrounds on this side of town. It's on a clean, rocky beach and the sites feel spacious. The owners are very friendly and willing to negotiate on the price. It's normally $25 with electricity, water and wifi, we got it for a little less; if you stay more than one night they will give a discount. This is a very quiet and clean campground. The owner will also cook a typical, tasty Mexican meal for a reasonable price.

Very nice campground within reasonable walking distance of the malecon. Unfortunately a rather strong wind/dust storm kept us hunkered down for a lot of our stay and prevented the restaurant from opening. But the owner prepared an excellent fish meal for us anyway. Hot showers. WiFi OK and 3 bars ATT.

Super quiet camping with showers and palapas. Brought our dogs and did some work over wifi. Paid $15 for the palapa with no water/electricity, didn't check to see what the cost is with hookups, but they offer them. The campground is near a school and you can hear their band practice outside. It is adorable.

Great location, Tenting by motorcycle was $10 USD per bike. Quite compared to other tourist beaches. A few other long term campers but other wise quite. The restaurant is open Thursday - Sunday. We were not here while open but everyone raves about the food. Was effected by the hurricane but has recovered well. There were charcoal BBQ that we were able to use.

After reading the comments here we checked this place out but there was nobody, just a radio very loud and the whole place looked a bit scruffy to us. We waited a while but nobody showed up so we left and went to another place down the road, as we really needed power and a shower ;)

very nice small place! got a beachfront spot for our van for 15 USD without services. probably discounted because of ongoing construction due to recent hurricanes, they are planning a lot of improvements for 2022/23. very friendly folks! one waitress speaks fluent English. a lot of locals when we were there but all nice and a generally safe feeling. great first stop after entering Mexico, would really recommend!

Alone but for 2 other vans, tiny little cove, super quiet. Gorgeous view of the bay. It's further away from San Felipe than I'd expected so i might move tomorrow. Great first day in Baja though.

Campground on its own beach just north of San Felipe. Can walk to town, 1.5 miles along road or along coast at low tide. Beach is rocky, nice views along the coast to town. Spots along the beach with palapas, picnic tables and grills, water and electric hookups. Charge was 400 pesos for the two of us in our truck. Wifi near office area. Clean flush toilets and cold showers.

We stayed here for about 10 days in November, back for 1 night. We enjoyed the park. Clean bathrooms and showers. The switch for hot water heater is between the 2 buildings. Up is ON. No need to have cold showers. PALAPAS, beach front with power and water. We negotiated a lower rate since wed been here before, fella recognized us. Normally $20 US. We paid less. Also there is a dump spot near restrooms if you need to empty tanks as you leave. (There are a couple rigs here long term, I'm guessing they have sewer hooked up) Restaurant on site. Usually open weekends, but she's happy to cook for a group with some notice. In this cove is an Oyster farm. So its been interesting to see the workers as they prepare the baskets that they grow in.

Rocky beach, recommend water shoes to enter and exit. Pelicans roost and feed.

bring fly swatter. Only downfall, fishery nearby feeds the fly population.

Nice place on the beach. Safe and secure. cold showers but nice on a hot day.

This is NOT a quiet campsite on the weekends: parties, music, drinking, and fun debauchery. if that's your thing, than great.

if it's not, you probably wouldn't like this place on a Friday or Saturday night.

Place with palapas that has electricity. For hot shower you have to ask before so they turn them on. 350 pesos, the cheapest one that I found in San Felipe.

Pleasant spot on the beach, just outside San Felipe town. Thatched palaces, picnic tables, electricity, water, sewer connections, restaurant, hot showers, clean flush toilets, and decent wifi. Easy walk into town on the road, or along the beach when tide is out. Asked 380 pesos, gave me 300 for one person with no electricity. Very quiet at night.

Stayed here for 4 nights with my dog. Super chill. Some snow birds but mostly had the area to myself. WiFi closer to the restaurant (or three picnic tables down from where I was) my shower was hot and bathrooms were well kept! Lots of pelicans to watch. No vendors which was kinda nice. Removed from town just the right amount. Heard coconut shrimp at the restaurant was to die for.

Review of Campo torustica number 1.

Campo torustica is a camping park. We are in a small trailer in 13 ft Casita. There are two of us. Asking price for one night was 25. We paid $20 a night for a week or 140. this included electricity and Wi-Fi and hot showers. People stayed in vans,tents and motorhomes here. It is right on the beach with a long hallway like set of palapas. restaurant sits at one end of palapas with Wi-Fi. Restaurant opens at 10 in the morning except Tuesdays.decent prices for food. We asked for and received free cooking lessons from the owner in her kitchen. Mini tide pools at low tide and Beach becomes somewhat rocky. most campsite have an electric light under the palapa. Located two miles from center of town but separated by one small hill. This keeps the craziness of the other resorts away from here. Showers were hot and bathrooms were clean. We enjoyed our stay here and would stay again.

From day one we were welcomed at Campo Turístico #1 as if we were family. We are going to miss our San Felipe tribe, sitting around the campfire, and sharing stories and laughs. The owners are very sweet and will prepare your meals for you for a fee if you bring them the ingredients. The down sides are that the showers never really get warm and the electricity has reversed polarity. We showered anyway and charged up our rig with solar. It didn't take much away from the experience.

Perfect beach cove and one of the largest in the area. Family owned and operated (Martin) and was always on property. I will being staying here again in the future. On site wifi was a little slow but no problem on my Verizon or Tecel singles. The military is right next door. It was windy while I was here it was great to have gravel at the camp site then sand. Tip shower is hot water on demand so ask Martin how to turn it on.

Payed 900 mex for 3 nights. Alone with 2 snowbirds. Host was a few times short on the place. Toilets and showers seems as long time not used, lot of Sand in. Used my own in the RV and dumped. WiFi was mostly working. Not a special place to stay longer. Town 2 km and nice with restaurants and shops.

we spent 2 nights here and after looking at the other places in town we were very happy. we were quoted $20 a night but got $16 a night for 2 nights. there was hot showers and flush toilets. Palapas had water and electricity except the last one which we stayed at since we didn't need those. friendly staff and we were told food at restaurant was good but we didnt eat there. Seemed very safe, giod 4G cell signal on Telecel.

A nice, peaceful place with enough space and palapas to provide shade. It was very quiet, just the sound of the waves. A small good restaurant and friendly owners makes the place perfect to relax and work to be done.

Stayed one night; the facilities looks a little bit run down but everything works; in the evening we talked to the people from the restaurant so we got a fabulous fresh fish the next day for lunch! Excellent!

Tent camp sites are very close together which can make the place noisy at night. Apparently after living in the boondocks for the past few weeks left me intolerant to having people partying when I can’t make it till gringo midnight. Despite myself it doesn’t help when what appeared to be the owners son as the cause of the loud partying.

We entered from Mexicali. Our first spot to come down. Very quiet.

$500 pesos per car during Semana Santa - the best price in town and probably the most peaceful as well.

Stayed here a couple of nights tent camping. Prior to that stayed at Kiki's Motel down the street. What a difference! Kiki's was packed with RV's and beach area not so quiet and peaceful due to the # of people there. The room had no working A/C and thank God I brought a fan otherwise it would have been horrible. I found Campo Turistico on another site and fell in love with it. Mexican family who owns/run it is very nice and very peaceful place not over-run with people AND dogs as the other place. Electricity, water, wi-fi, showers/bathroom in the price. I paid 500mxn for 2 nights and did ask for discount.

Great secluded camp site! Showers are hot! Wifi is good (must camp close to restaurant to access). If you stay a few days they will lower your nightly cost. We stayed for a couple of weeks and paid $70 per week. Oh, the nice owners will cook you a great meal for cheap. I recommend the coconut shrimp.

Nice campground on the beach with palapas. Much nicer that the other RV campgrounds nearby. There are two long palapas on either side of the restaurant/ office. There were only a few people here so we practically had one side to ourselves. The owners are super friendly, I asked if they had charcoal for the grill and he drove to the store and picked up a bag for us. The price is 350 pesos per night, but we negotiated down to 250 because we didn't need power or water. The campground is just far enough out of town to feel secluded. Good wifi as well.

It is a Great Place!!! It is very amazing and georgous. Einfach wundervoll, ein kleines einfaches aber schönes Paradies. Roberto kümmert sich liebevoll um seine Gäste. Victoria kocht geschmackvoll mexikanisch. Und das alles zu einem fairen Preis. Dusche und Toilette sind sauber, Toilette leeren und Wasser fassen geht, und das Wifi ist sehr schnell. Und den Strand hat man fast für sich alleine. Ein toller Platz zum ausspannen und sich versorgen lassen.

Great, quiet place. We originally only planned on staying one night but ended up staying longer.
