Description

Los Mochis-Great fenced area behind the NEW Smartgas fuel station. Attendant comes to visit (donation) and area is completely fenced and seems safe. Restaurant (closes 6pm) and Subway in front too.
S. of Los Mochis. Large truck stop. Security. About 194-195 km mile marker. Restaurant on premises. Had a late lunch food (good), reasonably-priced and we had a cool beverage.

Stopping northbound, once again. Attentive service at gas station.

Report Check-In

As reported, a safe, not too noisy spot to spend the night. restaurant on site, fuel, etc. Try to park out of the way as north and southbound truckers do trailer swaps until about 10:00 at night.

Report Check-In

The highway was noisier than the parking lot. The restaurant had good food and beverages. Security guy popped by (gave him 200 peso tip). Park out of the way somewhere, there are truck / trailer swaps done till @ 10/11 pm then it was quite, well quieter than the highway.

Great truck stop for a safe night. There is a gas station called Smart in the front with a restaurant attached to it. Behind the gas station is a very large gravel lot that is fenced in with a 24hr security guard. The bathrooms are very nice and they even have showers. We parked and stayed the night for free. A nice and safe spot for a good nights rest after driving all day! 😁

Stayed one night. Felt totally safe with the guard in the fenced area. Hoooot showers available for 20p/p.

nice place to overnight stop especially if you have a big rig. huge parking lot and the semis tend to stay close to the restaurant. we went all the way to the back a lot where it was fenced in to a farmer's field and stay there for a peaceful night. the lot has an attendant and although parking is free we gave him 50 pesos when we came in.

Report Check-In

The options to park along this stretch of the road between San Carlos and Mazatlan are pretty slim, so we opted to gas up and stay here for the night. Decent amount of road noise, BYOTP for the toilets, well-lit, gated and fenced and patrolled by a security guard. We felt safe and secure

Get location for over night. Gate in back for security

Report Check-In

Great overnight spot. Quiet, nice setting against farmers fields, secure and lots of room at the back for RVers to park away from the trucks.

A few amendments to previous comments -

Now a restaurant, rather than a Subway. It's ok - we had dinner.

Sadly, the site with BBQ, electricity, etc is in disrepair. Certainly no problem for us.

A few midges - noseeums, if you like - the night we were here. But, overall, a great place to stop for the night.

Report Check-In

Secure lot where you can stay overnight if you fill with fuel / tip the security. Restaurant as well! Best one-night overnight option heading south Guaymas to Mazatlan.

Report Check-In

Secure place for one-night stop south bound.

By far the best place to overnight in Los Mochis. Quiet. Gated. Patrolled. South of town. Friendly.

Report Check-In

Just out of town and much more mellow. Various RV’s here parked along the back fence. It’s free and feels like a secure location as night falls.

Safe fenced area behind the Smart Gas station. Noisy but good half way stop on way to Mazatlán. Tip the security guard about 100 pesos and all is good.
