A wonderful way off the beaten track camping site. For us, the cost was 100 pesos per person. As others have indicated, the restaurant is now open serving the freshest of seafood. You can see the oyster farm across the estuary where the restuarant gets their oysters. The restaurant bathrooms have hot and cold water and are very clean - even with paper towels to dry your hands. It appears that only one restroom for the casitas and campers is open or fully functionable. The restroom was clean and has a cold water shower. WiFi only works in the restaurant, but works well. If you have TelCel capabilities, it works very slowly. It's a long drive in from Hwy 1 and if you like isolated windswept beaches this is the place for you.

Campo Rene is now open to campers. The restaurant is open, and wifi and toilets are functional at the restaurant. Rate is 100 pesos per person per night until all services are going, at which time it will increase back to 200 pesos per person per night. magical place. Campo Rene got hammered in the hurricane, and could do with support. A wonderful group of folk was here last weekend, and pulled hundreds of bags (which were used by the oyster farm) out of the mangroves, as well as a jetski. All help in cleaning up the hurricane damage will be gratefully received:)

Campo Rene is open. Most of the buildings are still standing, the toilets flush, there are a bunch of people camped here. I am going kayaking tomorrow to check out the amazing bird life here.

Report Check-In

Closed. Destroyed by hurricane. Many piles of debris, broken glass, etc. It looks like it will be quite a while before they’re ready to open again. We camped beside the estuary outside the gates. No facilities.

Report Check-In

Correction… they are currently closed due to the hurricane however they plan to reopen the restaurant and start rebuilding by October.
We traveled into the small town of Punta Abreojos, tomorrow is Mexico’s Day of Independence and they were having a parade & festival. We ended up meeting the owners. So glad to know they will rebuild!!

Sadly we got here to find that the hurricane has devastated Campo Rene, there is no one here and the structures are all destroyed or badly damaged.

The new operators have made continual improvements to this place. The bathrooms are cleaned daily and the garbage is dealt with promptly. The sani dump does exist but it is a hard to find pipe sticking out of the ground, and is currently by a large steel tank near the entrance. We took fish that we caught to the restaurant and they did an amazing job cooking it for us. As this place is out of town, it is very quiet and the star show is amazing. The rate is $200 mxn/person. The two large casitas are $850 mxn/night and have their own bathroom. The smaller colourful casitas are $650/night. Kayaks are available for use. The operators are here 24/7. Lots of coyotes in the area.

Completely open now including restaurant and yurts. Repainted and cleaned up everything. $10 per person.

Report Check-In

They reopened in August 2022 under new management I heard. Stayed for two nights. They asked $10 USD per person or $400 pesos. I negotiated a bit down since I was staying multiple days. Basic hot showers, could use a thorough cleaning!!!! Toilets good. Must sit on restaurant patio to get wifi and electricity. So basic dry camping. The restaurant is fantastic though. And the lagoon is a sight to see. We kayaked with dolphins😍 if coming again, I would camp free across the road and walk to the restaurant for the wifi and electricity. They quoted $5 USD for a shower if not camping there.

A wonderful campground located right on the Estero El Coyote. The fishing cooperative has taken over the campground and restaurant was recently re-opened three months ago. The dump station is no longer available but for a cost of $50 the front desk can call a mobile dump truck that will come and empty your holding tanks. Campground has clean showers and restrooms for all occupants. Palapa‘s were destroyed by hurricane Kay. To Palapa Casitas are now open. They are working on remodeling the rest of the Casitas and will open in the near future. The restaurant is delicious and has a decent bar. All well priced. We were charged $10 per night per person. Great fishing and kayaking in the estuary and at the mouth. The website is not updated and the contact information is not up-to-date. Please take a look at the photo of the business card and brochure for contact info. Definitely coming back.

The rate is now $250/night. The showers and bathrooms are functional but the restaurant is still closed. A night watchman arrives around 9:00pm and leaves in the morning. Very little maintenance is being done at this point. The dump station is between the the large storage palapa and the entrance. Look for a black plastic pipe sticking out of the ground. The access road across the salt flats is in good condition. Some of the palapas have power and a light. The wiring is totally sketchy so be careful what you touch, there is no ground wire.

Campo Rene appears to now be open again, although someone only stops by to collect intermittently. No one here when we arrived and one other camper showed up late in the afternoon. Grounds are in pretty good shape. Able to stay one night without any issues.

Closed at least for now. Locals said it hasn’t been open since January 2020. Two boats block the entrance with signs indicating no one can enter. No signs of life in the campo. A few dry camping spot are accessible just outside the campo.

Stayed two nights across from Campo Rene close to the fish processing place, right on the inlet to the lagoon. Beautiful spot! Saw dolphins in the lagoon, lots of birds!

Jesus is the manager and speaks good English. Campground is surrounded by a pretty estero where people come to fish. Tons of birds and fish which is pretty cool. A few mosquitos at sunset. Really good burger at the restaurant. Looks like the place got hit pretty bad by the last hurricane a few months ago. The palapas are in bad shape and the cabanas didn’t inspire us (we would rather sleep in our van) and come with shared bathroom. We paid 100 pesos to park our van. There are 2 cool looking fancier cabanas available for rent (private bathroom) but there’s not electricity inside. Our friends rented one and had to put all their lanterns inside to be able to see something. Cell signal (but poor) and no WiFi.
