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.

Stayed 2 nights - 1 camp spot (no hookups) with pickup camper and friend’s car for 400 pesos a night

Nice place - generally quiet - stayed here as first stop on Baja trip - wonderful sunrises

Report Check-In

Good enough campo, not great. Close to town but feels just out of the fray. Quiet enough considering the location, but definitely the usual dogs, roosters, loud trucks, early fishing boats. Worked well for a first night in Baja. Some of the power outlets work--we were able to charge our power station. Cold showers, no TP. Palapas did not keep the rain off our tent, so are really just for shade.

Good views and you can hike up the mountain with the communications towers, by walking from camp. Great steep trail going up the ridge.

Report Check-In

Campground was ok, nothing special. It’s on the water and the scenery was nice if you don’t mind the rusty grounded ship and other industrial debris off to the left side. Staff were very friendly and spoke English well. Restaurant was fine, but certainly not special. Shower was very cold. 400 pesos for one night. One nice thing is that sunrise in the morning was very beautiful.

Report Check-In

We found this to be a noisy stay: there were roosters (lots of roosters), some barking (not a lot but some), ATV/bikes, local traffic on the nearby road, and early morning fisherman getting their boats into the sea.

Cost was 400 for a 30 foot motorhome. We got there at about 3pm, (no staff around when we pulled in) and someone knocked on the door around 6pm for payment. He didn't have change for 500 peso bill, so you may want to try to have the right amount.

We parked on the "non-sea" side of the area, behind a big 5th wheel (at least 25 feet long plus the truck), and there was another 5th wheel on the 'sea-side' which looks like it'll be here all winter...so this place can easily be considered "big-rig friendly".

We thought the view was nice...pelicans and birds on the water, waves lapping on the shore, tidy building housing the restaurant, lovely sunset.

toilets were clean (bring your own TP) , in the morning the restaurant staff was helpful and directed me to a very easy, flat, dump hole under a piece of plywood under a tree in the middle area, near a bunch of coiled up hose (we didn't want to try to use the dump hole by the toilets, which was not a level surface to park on).

Alas, the restaurant was not open on Wednesday, but they said it would be on Thursday. Too late for us, but not a biggie.

Report Check-In

Price is 400 pesos or 25 dollars. That's what the ladies asked for, I did not haggle the price. Not sure why there are recent comments about 500 or even 600 pesos. In March we paid 20 dollars, so 25% price increase this winter.

Still cold water showers. Still need to bring your own TP to the bathroom.

I clocked 46 Mbps down and 11 Mbps up on my Verizon/Visible phone roaming here. High ping at 180ms so probably good for anything but zoom calls.

We checked this place out as our first stop in San Felipe. Pretty barren. There was a restaurant on site. $600 pesos per night for a spot with electricity and water. $500 without the water. Didn't stay. Went down the road to Campo La Palapa.

We went to Kiki’s. The owner said that the weekend would be loud. So we came here. Amazing. Some long term campers. Everyone very friendly. The restaurant is pretty good and fresh. So the fisherman today bringing the octopus at 7:00 am. The best decision to stay here while we made repairs.

On of the most quiet places and cheapest place to stay in San filip. Price was 600 for full hockup. All other places the price was 1000. The owner is really nice!

Report Check-In

Nice place, but not very quiet at night. Bring your paper toilet and prepare yourself that there is a lot of partys going down here and a lot of dogs that barks at night. But in general very nice place and very good food in the restaurent.

Report Check-In

USD $20/night. One of the cheapest in the area; everything here is super expensive. Bathrooms were fine; cold showers but we didn't use them. Very nice people at the restaurant, they gave us some limes for our own guacamole and did not want to charge us. Starlink was excellent. Google Fi was medium, probably not good for Zoom calls. This is a good place to spend the night and leave early in the AM to cross back to the USA.

Spent the night. Very friendly. Restaurant on site only open Thurs- Sun 11am-6pm
Wi-Fi is very weak
Good shade for eating at the sites
Nice beach for a walk just beyond the campsite

Report Check-In

The check-in was $400pesos for dry camping. Wifi was so slow it was not usable for me. The showers were cold and full of mosquitoes. There was a place for washing dishes. we were parked right on the beach by a Palapa with a picnic table which was nice.

We stayed on a Saturday so the restaurant was full. we did not eat there however we heard it was great food. The evening started badly however with numerous 4wheelers riding up and down the beach, at times making circles around behind the campers, stirring up dust. This lasted an hour or two. they finally packed it up and went home, we thought.

At midnight the house behind the campground had a full band play as loud as they possibly could. This lasted until 3am. This was our last evening in Mexico and definitely our worst camping experience. I realize it was Saturday night and this probably won’t happen every night but I sure wish we boondocked instead of staying at this campground. We would not recommend this campground.

Arrived by bicycle, in a tent. Nice place to spend the night. Out of the bustle of San Felipe. Charged $300 (peso) for the night, which I was happy with considering the beach-front location, good hot shower (see below tip regarding switch for the water heater), power sockets in the shelter of the palapas, even good WiFi as I pitched up on the restaurant end. I think there was even a washing machine although I didn't use it. Seemed to be room to negotiate on price if staying longer

Great little friendly camp. 400 pesos a night. Restaurant, showers, electricity, sani dump, and water. We rode our bikes into town in 10 min.

Quiet, relaxing place to stay. Showers are hot, and there are flush toilets. Paid $16/night for a Transit van; two people and a dog. Had electricity and water had we needed it. Stayed here 6 nights in total. Friendly staff, and interesting to watch their oyster operation. Slow cell service (T-mobile), but on-site restaurant offered wi-fi. Would recommend.

Nice and quiet. Very small but great beach

Report Check-In

Charged 400MX for one night, without hookups. I tried to bring it down to 200MX based off of recent reviews and negotiated to 300MX final. They have clean showers and a station to wash dishes outside, as well as palapas with a table. Some look like they have dump stations - not sure if the electricity works as we didn’t need it.

This spot is just a bit further out of town from the other ones like Los palapas and Kiki’s. We are travelling with two vehicles and stopped to get prices at the other ones which ranges from 750 pesos total for both vehicles to 600 for each. We then came here and they offered us 200 pesos per vehicle. We’ve been here for three nights and it’s been great. Night one we were the only non-long termers and we got a spot right on the beach. It seems to get busier towards the weekend and in case new years as last night several more rigs pulled in. There was a bit of a local party on the beach but it was short lived. Restaurant is open during the day until they sell out. The owner and volunteers are super nice and helpful. It feels safe here, especially being that little extra distance from town but still close enough to walk into town.

Decided to stay here based off others reviews and so happy we did. Love this place ! Will be back again on the way back to the states. Super friendly family. Paid $400 pesos per night. Deff the cheaper option in the area and I like that it’s away from the main touristy area… yet walkable(30min walk). WiFi was spotty but when it worked, it worked well. Didn’t use the showers, but bathrooms were decent. We also used the power which worked well for powering up our van. Loved waking up the sunrises and seeing the sunsets here. Very peaceful.

Report Check-In

We stayed here for 2 nights for 400 pesos in total (we did not need hookups and you may barter). It is family owned and the people are really nice. There is also a restaurant, but I would advise against it because the prices are comparable to a Hilton hotel. The beach is very rocky, but you get nice views. You can easily walk to the town from the beach; it is only 1 mile away. Better value for money compared to Kikis and others who charge 700p per night for dry camping.

Report Check-In

Quiet, nice campground and friendly staff. Hardly anyone at the campground on the Friday we arrived and lots of space available at the beachfront palapas. Full hookup site w/110V 10A was just 400mp ($20USD). Lots of individual showers and toilets (clean) 100 yards from the campsite. Condition is a little "rustic", but clean and everything working. All the other campsites around San Felipe tend to be around $35+USD/night and offer a lot less. There is also a restaurant onsite but we haven't eaten there. So far, very quiet.

Report Check-In

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.

decent enough spot - water, elec & sewer hook ups available. 400p/night
rocky beach, two other campers here the night we arrived. good reception with starlink.

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!

This campground has been very good for us. We recommend it! We found it to be quiet when we were here on a Saturday night. As others have said it’s a rocky beach, the adjacent beaches campgrounds are Sandy but crowded and worn. Bathrooms and showers are clean, people are nice that run it.

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.

rocky shoreline with sandy Beach @ palapias

Report Check-In

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.

Report Check-In

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.

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.

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.

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.

$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.
