Latest Check-Ins

Actually a nice large RV park. clean restrooms and showers. Full hookup possible. Washing and drying machines. WiFi is good,if Park is empty. WiFi is very bad, when more than 10 people are here.
Soap and paper towels were not replenished during our 4 days here :-(
Pebble beach (very dirty) across the street. Why plastic, beer bottles, etc. are not cleaned up here is a mystery to me.
But now the little scam:
The prices are shown in US dollars. Dry Camp costs $22 per night ($26 full hookup).
At the moment 1 US Dollar=20,66 Pesos. The Petrol Stations rate here f.e. is 19 Pesos/1 US$!
But the receptionist calculates 1$ = 22 Pesos. He makes his own rating.
1 night dry camp costs real 455 pesos.
But they want 484 pesos.
That is 29 pesos (1,4 US$) too much!
If you pay with credit card, you must pay in pesos, not in US$.
If you pay in Cash USD, it's fine.
For us an absolute no go! Never had this (little scam) in the last 7 months in more than 60 Mexican Campgrounds.

Report Check-In

As described, very few campers in June 2022. We had a few issues with the water which kept coming and going in the showers. The power did the same. We were plugged into one of the few 15 amp household plugs that was easily overwhelmed by our modest power demands. We didn’t bring a 30 amp plug this trip and this was the first RV park where this was a problem.
The pool is tiny the street is busy and the music from the restaurants is loud.
It was an odd experience preventing us from relaxing prior to cross the border on our way home. Frustrating but probably not going to be your experience. $26 US per day raised our expectations.

Report Check-In

Thumping disco music at all hours - thumping to the point you can feel the beat! It finally died down at 5:30 am. The price one pays for being on the main drag in a professional Mexican party town. Bring ear plugs. Very clean bathrooms with cold showers. Lots of restaurants with thumping music nearby

Always a pleasure. The first and last place I stop going on and out of Mexico.

I stayed here for one month from Jan. 8th to Feb. 8th before heading further south. It is a very well managed park. Mostly full of Canadian and American snowbirds who’ve been going there for years. Price is $26.00USD per night $170.00USD per week or $570.00USD per month. José the manager and Joseph the owner both speak perfect English and are excellent to deal with. Laundry is $1.50USD per load for both the washers and dryers. Both work well and and they do have a clothesline to hang your clothes to dry if you choose. Beautiful beach across the street. Walking distance to everything. Restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Great place to start a journey into Mexico.

Spent 2 nights in a site with no hookups for $22 USD/night. Friendly host with very good English. Many amenities: bathrooms, showers, pool, pickleball court, palapas, fitness room (closed due to COVID), dog run, yards, Wi-Fi. Ley express grocery store 1km further into town on the same side of the street. Quiet in the area, many restaurants & shops closed. Beautiful rocky hills! Very nice stay.

As described by others, large RV park, across street from beach, many US and Canadian RVers here for days, weeks, or months. Clean bathrooms.

Great place! Wifi great, current price USD$26 or MEX572 full hookups. Pool nice, hot tub only MWF. Bathrooms, coin laundry, fish cleaning room. No grass for dogs but dogs very welcome on leash. Lots of snowbirds here. Easy walk to Ley Supermarket and ATM. Lavanderia across Ley but expensive, just do coin laundry. Will definitely stay here again.

Personally I would avoid this place if possible
Extremely money oriented and not friendly
We checked it out and they were awful to us so we chose to not stay here
If you need hook ups go to the one on Guaymas
If you don’t need hook ups
The beach near Pilar is lovely and sweet community

We now call the workers at Totonaka Nazis
Though they aren’t exterminating people, they are the first unfriendly and unkind people we have encountered in Mexico

Very well-maintained RV park.Bathrooms are very clean and the water is hot. USD $18.00 to tent.

Location is really wonderful. Price for tent camping is same, $396 pesos per night. Wifi however is not good at the sites, there are many networks but most except for at the office they are really slow, could barely do anything with the slow connection. The people who work here and stay here are really wonderful. Great coffee shop walking distance. Entrance to the beach is right across the street. Great spot.

It’s a big place in a great location. Very expensive. I’m camping, zero hookups, 400 pesos/$20 us per night. Could get AirBnB for that but the weather is perfect right now. Great bathrooms and WiFi

$22/ dry camp, $26 hook ups.
Ghost town right now. Seems to be a lot of little dogs barking. Hummingbird came up to me as soon as I got out of the truck.
Bathroom looks nice. Neat the beach is across the street. Getting back into the swing of things. Never report on iOverlander till you stay the night. Yikes. Loud super loud disco across the street. Horrible.
we moved as far back into the park as possible still loud and pounding. So sad.
The bathrooms have been redone. Very nice and clean.
However the toilet seat was not secured. Beware

San Carlos RV Park has over 100 spaces, but November-March many escape Canadian Winter making it a local party park. Spaces are tight with utilities questionable; water pressure low but showers good, electricity surges so bring your protection

Typical older RV Park rough road, poor utility placement and narrow sites, but people are friendly

Very nice RV park located in San Carlos Sonora Mexico. Located just across the highway from a beautiful rocky beach. Power was 30 amp, Water pressure very low, filled fresh water tank and used pump to shower. Site was gravel/dirt with a concrete pad. Price was $21.00 per night for 7 days. Likely 70% Canadian campers, all were very friendly and helpful. Close to restaurants and shopping. I camped in this park with a 40’ fifthwheel.

Great campground! So nice to get a break from the road. Enjoyed the pool yesterday and going to the beach across the street today. Staff at the entrance is very very nice and speaks perfect english. 24$ a night with all services and excellent wifi. (28$ for 50 amp) great restaurant with view on the ocean right next door. They even deliver if you want to eat on the tables by the pool. Only down is water pressure but we kept our pump on and refill when needed. Easy fix for small problem.

Report Check-In

Nice enough spot with all the amenities except water pressure at the sites. But we can tell we are getting close to the US. All prices increasing rapidly. 420 pesos per night.

Report Check-In

They are very accommodating on short notice. It's a busy park, with a significant return customer base. Walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The wifi and water pressure were both very weak, and I was told by a resident that the electric is spotty during the summer, but it was fine while I was there. Kind of expensive for what you get. There is a large vacant property located right next door and I'm surprised no one has scooped it up to create a competing park.

Booked for a week, stayed for winter! Great spot, friendly helpful staff. New bathrooms, vey well kept. Sporadic water pressure, keep rv tanks full and use pump when pressure low.

Beautiful new bathrooms, lovely hot showers, friendly English-speaking staff. $20 without hookups. Clean but kind of ugly but great location. Kind of a young retirees party scene.

$24 USD per night, or $22 per night paid by the week. Okay place, 30 amp service. Provided internet was good enough. Sign at entry says no outside vendors or services, you must use the parks vendors for anything. You cannot wash you own RV, but can pay them to do it.

We were on our way to see the RV Park and our engine started stalling We parked about a block away and walked to the RV Park to see if they knew of a mechanic The man there said since we weren’t staying at the park he couldn’t help us He was really rude We had to walk to another business to find the name of a mechanic When we told the mechanic about the reception we received at the RV Park he said their reputation was one of rudeness and arrogance We got our RV fixed but decided not to stay there We wild camped and it was very lovely The RVs were jammed in there like sardines The pool was as small as a postage stamp A lot of permanent residents there who seemed to enjoy pickle ball We are just used to better and for us wild camping was definitely better

This is a full service RV park. We paid 300 pesos for one night of vehicle camping. Would have been cheaper if we had a tent. They had electricity and water at the site. Weak wifi unless you go to the front office building. They had a couple clean pools, bathrooms with showers and coin laundry available.

Been in Totonaka RV Park for 3 weeks now. Nice clean park. Clean bathrooms with showers. Showers are ok, but tend to be either too hot or a bit colder than I like. Wi-fi varies from great to slow, but I hear it's very good if you go to the "clubhouse". Pickleball court, pool & hot tub. Pool is a bit cold and hot tub is pretty good with temperatures being similar to most US or Canada hotels (a bit cooler than I prefer a hot tub to be). English speaking owner & manager. Friendly staff. Close to some restaurants. We have power, water & sewer hook up. Some cable channels (not great quality picture, but it is in English). Propane, bottled water & fish vendors come here. Coin laundromat on site. My first real RV park in Mexico and I'm pleased with it.

Great spot to stop for the night. Clean, well maintained, warm showers, very clean bathrooms, relatively good wifi. $14 USD or 245 pesos for a tent without power but with water. Across from a nice beach. No local food (mamacita's taqueria...) or mercado at a walking distance, just pricey restaurants, so go grocery shopping before you settle down otherwise your only option is the OK convenience store a hundred metres away. It's an RV park, don't expect nature and solitude.
