Not a fan.
Yes, it’s on the beach. Unfortunately it has just about every other thing going wrong for it.
300MXN not a deal in the slightest for a spot of sand w/o hookups, considering....
-The men’s restroom was out of order/locked
-The ladies restroom was dirty, no soap, no paper towels, no shower heads on the pipes, and had not been cleaned in some time.
-Homeless/drunk/drug-addled people all through town...so much they had to install a barbed wire fence to keep them out of the RV Park. This town is very sketchy, in and of itself.
Believe me...I don’t mind paying a premium price for a premium campground...no issue there. But they have maybe 100 permanent residents here paying WAY more than 300 pesos per month...where are they putting the money? Certainly not back into the campground...that’s for certain!
I won’t be back...this is the most I’ve paid at any CG in Mexico in the last 3 weeks and 3000 miles, camping nearly every night....and by far the worst run & least attractive. :-/
Roll the dice and try anywhere else first. :-)

Great spot right on the beach. Super quiet at night, incredible beach views, and felt very local. Electricity worked, water and dumps on site. Didn't use showers or outside bathrooms. Wifi is available but only by the office. Thank you Marta for a wonderful stay

Islandia is such a lovely low key mellow beautiful place...I am so glad we found it. Is is in old Kino, right at the beach, lot of sesonal wonderful people who welcomed us with open arms and tipps and invitations...
Martha, who runs the place speaks very good english and is very accommodating. The bathrooms are very neglected but as long as you are not tent camping you use your own one anyway. water pressure is very low, so we fill up the water tank and use the pump. this os Mexico, you have to work around some things, right ;-)
Wednesdays and Saturdays Martha's husband bakes fresh bread and sweets. Make sure you get your order in a day ahead! you can walk to town with a lot of authentic little restaurants with great and very reasonable food. our kids are out at the beach and collecting tons of shells. We love it here and probably gonna end up staying longer than just a week.
We looked at the other two places in Kino Nueve....Islandia def has the most flair and is the best if you wanna be close to everything in walking distance!

Just checked in - nice spot - Antonio called the owner to get the wifi password - we are on the beach - hello Baja 😊

Super nice people and laid back vibe. It’s right on the beach, the bathrooms are basic and the Wi-Fi is decent. Home baked bread and fresh-caught shrimp are available in the park. The cantina next door plays loud music on weekends, so earplugs came in handy.

Camping très sympa, personnel charmant. accès direct à la plage, propre mais sans plus. On a pas voulu se baigner car il y avait beaucoup de tête de poisson qui flottait. Les nombreux bateaux de pêche doivent les rejeter à la mer.🤭
on a payé 320 pesos.
un pêcheur nous a vendu 1 kg de gambas pour 250 pesos. et des enfants nous ont vendus de délicieux cakes maisons à 5 pesos.

Stayed here 4 nights. Lovely rural place and town. Good wi-fi in the office. A lot of Americans, Canadians who live there and willing to talk/hang out/help. 330 pesos per night full hookups 24ft

Town isn't much, but the park is nice. Bathrooms are adequate. Warm water, low flow, no paper, reasonably clean. Didn't try wifi, got 4G reliably from T-Mobile. We paid $160 since we don't need hookups.

We were pretty excited to stay here for a few days because there are some great reviews on the place. We were pretty disappointed, but all in all still had a great time and the staff was really friendly. The bathrooms were pretty dirty, the mens toilets were overflowing the first two days, the wifi doesn't work, loud music was playing until 2am. We were charged 300 pesos per night which was 50 pesos more than someone had posted just a few months ago. With all of that said, it was a holiday weekend and the place was packed and they were having a hard time keeping up with maintenance. The condition off the bathrooms and no wifi were the real bummers, it was like paying for wild camping...

$250 pesos per night, or $1400/week, beachfront, with WiFi, water and electric. Walking distance to everything. We drove north to see the other options, but this was clearly the best choice.

I like this place! This was my second time here, and I was sad to see some damage from storms that impacted the sea wall and some of the campsites, but they're working on getting everything fixed. The long-term residents here are a really friendly community, and I always have a good time. It's right by the beach, and you can walk into old Kino easily.

Esta localizado en Kino , Viejo, Sonora, a 100 km de Hermosillo, la capital del estado de Sonora, es un lugar bonito y tranquilo, visitado en invierno por Canadienses, Americanos y mexicanos de fin de semana, el trato de su personal es amable y respetuoso,

The owners are great, they recently bought this place. They used to visit when they were kids growing up in Hermosillo, and want to make the place nice. The sea wall was damaged in Oct 2014 during Hurricane Odiele, so some of the tent sites are missing. The expat RVers there are very friendly and helpful.
