Description

Sandy lot on a cliff over the beach. Water, electric, wifi (hit or miss), laundry, and hot showers. Nice book exchange. 190 MXN/night. NOTE: SKOBBLER told us it would take over 6 hours to get here from the Mex 1, it took less than 2 hours. Water availability can be intermittent depending on the town's water supply.

Basic campground but all you will need. Clean toilet, hot shower, decent wifi and even a laundry machine. Compact sandy lot close to the beach. Owner of the campground also runs the Hotel Bufadora at the far end of town and can provide great info for exploring the area. Usually somebody will be staying in the RV next to the campground that takes care of it.

Small bluff top campground with flush toilet and shower. Basic phone coverage, 2G on Verizon. In town, close to beach and restaurants.

We checked this place out and it looks deserted. No one was there—due to COV 19?

Currently $10-$12 per night, depending on rig.

Not what it used to be I'm afraid. With the construction of the new seawall there's an improved road between the camp and the seawall, so it's perhaps 100 feet from the camp sites, and all day and evening it's a constant parade of cruisers going by with their stereos booming, going on until late at night on weekends especially. Also, it seems the neighbors all have the password to the wifi so it's so slow as to be pretty much unusable most of the time.

Also related to the seawall, there's no longer direct access to the beach. You can go 100 yards to some steep stairs in front of the hotel, or 200 yards the other way to the road the locals use to drive to the beach, not nearly as nice.

Still has clean flush toilet, (short) hot showers and a washing machine, so some real pluses in addition to being the only place in town. BA is a nice little town, I really enjoy spending time here, but the camp has gotten so noisy it's just not that attractive any more.

Dec 15,2019- we arrived late afternoon, were welcoming by Lucas, the front neighbour, who explained us that he is helping the owner. Nice basic campground, very quiet, sound of waves, mexican singer neighbour...Paid 285 pesos.

Update. Nobody was here but I parked anyway. This morning I discovered the the building was kept unlocked. There is a jar to put your camping fee into. That's sweet. I wouldn't be so trusting in my home town. I give them five stars just for that.

What you see is what you get. I went to check out other areas outside of town but was thwarted by the slippery mud. it had rained four days earlier. Parked here and set up camp. Nobody ever showed up.Nice little working class town. Not a tourist town.Beautiful Bay and beach.

Ended up staying a week here for various reasons. Didn't think much of it at first but it really grew on me. It's kind of right in town, but has hot showers, flush toilets and moderate internet for a very reasonable price. The beach is only 100' away and I caught tons of small bonito and halibut off the beach every day. Nice camp host, Lucas, very friendly and helpful. Really came to like the town, talked with many of the locals, clean, quiet, friendly place. Spend some time and enjoy the community.

Road to Bahía Asunción is great. Campsite here is next to beach, which is beautiful. So we stayed for one week and got a discount at 900 mxn, but we'd say the nightly rate of 170 is a rip-off. Yes there are hook-ups (electric+water), but city water comes on sporadically. There is no one to clean the bathroom/shower, so we cleaned it ourselves. There is garbage and dog poop strewn around the site. We used the washer to get the most for our money. It's old but it worked pretty well, we just had to fill it up ourselves with water. There is a dump station, which was a plus. Consider the internet non-existent, as it was off for about half of our stay. For alternative camp spots, you could ask locals in town about wild-camping down on the point (El Punto) outside of town, as they don't seem very keen on the owner of Campo Sirena, Sheri, anyway.

Stayed here 3 nights with my dog at Campo Sirena. Peaceful place with view of ocean within short walking distance. Saw several whales in the bay.
Even though the campground is in town I felt safe there and everyyone there said they had no problems with theft. Availability of faucet water is questionable at times but it is due to the town itself rather than the property. There are plenty of small stores to buy water and food.

The only camp in town. Not very well maintained. Have hot shower, wifi and electricity. Also wash machine but I don't know if clothes get cleaner or dirtier. A few meters from the beach. 200 pesos.

We arrived just before dark and this seems to be the only option in town so we paid $12 usd for dry camping. It was an alright place but overpriced. We weren't impressed with the town so we left after a short walk in the morning.

Just ok grounds but friendly staff partial ocean view and great book exchange. $10/nt with warm showers and sporadic wifi.

Hmm...PRO: you have a little house for shower (hot), inclusive a flushing toilets, you have free wifi (ok, not really fast, but o.k)
the Beach is not far away (150m), the little Village has everything you need, you get there by feet..
CON: the lot and the surrounding is not really clean, you are surrounded by buildings, a street, its not really quiet, a lot of dogs are there!
overall not the badest place. we stayed to nights to slow down our Travelspeed....don"t think that this is a very "romantic" beach places..
The little libraryhouse is nice (in the back is the shower) Don't go in there without light...the cockroaches are sooo big...

The Pickup and two persons :150 Pesos
