Description

Pull off the main highway when you see the signs, about 1km further down the dirt road turn left. Nice flat spot, surrounded by huge cactus trees, amazing sunset. Free. Start of a desert road to the coast , 73 km as the signs says, but I didn’t take it this trip

Approaching from the south, the signs for the road are gone, but the signs for the basura are still there. Loved it here just like everyone else. Very scenic, quiet, and clean. Yet, the person who left English graffiti should be banned from natural beauty forever.

Stayed here for 2 nights in our 83’ dodge camper van. Easily the most beautiful place we’ve camped. Can get quite windy so try use a bolder and your setup to your advantage. Close by cave paintings are cool. Follow our journey to Costa Rica on Instagram keet_hogan

As described. Spent 3 awesome days and nights here! Best first camp after a long driving day deep into Baja.

Cool spot in the pretty desert, easy to get to, big enough for several vehicles, some trash, nice boulders. We biked 10 miles down the road and really there weren't any spots as roomy or as pretty as this one. The biking was ok, some parts are sandier than others so a good leg workout.

Pulled off highway 1 along dirt road. passed this site at first but there really wasn't anything quite as perfect for tent camping. Easily traversed the dirt road in a Ford Taurus (with 2 inches extra clearance than normal). Access is easy, the site is beautiful, and the stars were spectacular at night. I was camping alone, so it is easy to feel a bit terrified but everything was perfect. The silence is deafening enough that the occasional sound of a truck engine brake was almost reassuring ;-)

there's a fire pit setup with rocks. really loved the place.

There’s a large sign and a basura (which is like gold out here!) at the head of this dirt road. We took the second camping turn-off amongst the giant cactus. Beautiful wild camp. Further down is a giant lake in the road that we dare not pass in our van, or we would have explored deeper in.

El sitio es espectacular, los cactus miden 15m de altura y las rocas le dan un encanto único. Muy tranquilo, a 500m de la carretera. El acceso es muy bueno, con un camino de arena accesible para mi RV de 7.5 metros. Repetiría sin dudar!

Amazing spot between the gigantes cactus! It’s an unique cactus forest so definitely worth it to sleep one night!

By far one of the most amazing places in all mexico!
If you drive around El Valle de los Cirios you have to stop here to sleep! Enormous cactus and cirios and every kind of desert vegetation around.
Felt super safe, no noises at all. There was a fire even ready to be put on!
The skies at night and stars are unbelievable!!!

Awesome free spot next to huge Cacti and boulders! Hidden from the road. We fit both of our Skoolie’s and Jeep in the 2nd spot. We decide to back in which was a little tight but we made it! Road is hard packed and any rig can fit. Only thing is road is a bit narrow. Felt safe.

Good solid road in. Beautiful scenery.
We parked two school bus conversions here, even though site suggested not suitable for big rigs. 28ft parked without issue. A little tighter for 34ft rig but still able to fit.

Probably one of the coolest desert campsites we've ever stayed at. A nice little turn around tucked into some nice big cactuses and boulders. We came on a heavy rain day and the road in was solid. Used a big boulder to block the wind. No cell reception, but who cares, this place was awesome! None of the bugs or bees noted in other posts.

Isolated place in the middle of a cactus forest. Very beautiful. No amenities.
We're the only one.
Didn't feel insecure. Very quiet

It is a beautiful place for sure, but - and that must have changed recently - full of bees! Ar the beginning it was just a few but turned out to be a few hundred after a couple of hours. They were attacking our van and we had to literally flee as it was getting quite dangerous! I would NOT recommend going there any time soon! We left for a spot 6km further south with no bees and equal beauty!

pulled in late, but had no trouble finding the spot. BEAUTIFUL with the sunrise, and quiet! great location!

Desert camping at its finest. One of our favorite spots to camp in Baja. Beautiful sunsets and very quiet. Watch out for some snakes and the cacti if you have pets.
Drive a little more than the first parking lot you see, that’s where the good spots are :)

Gorgeous desert setting close to, but not visible from the highway. We arrived as the sun was setting and took a bunch of pictures. In the end we decided not to stay here as the sign on the drive in mentioned snakes and we were worried about our curious dog finding a rattlesnake in one of the many scrubby or rocky areas.
