Description

We asked if we could stay in the parking lot after visiting the archeological site and they said that it was no problem at all.

The parking lot is at the entrance of the canion and there is a lot of levelled space and great view in all directions. Awesome sunset! The bathroom and museum buildings are closed at night. Water down in the canion and probably there is also some hose but we didn't need it. Totally recommend the 3 km paved detour from route 40 to explore the canion and the Huelco culture!

A parking lot you can use for free. the night was very calm and the waterholes are nice to spend a relaxed day. I was all alone there but it’s the pandemic and it looks like they are preparing for many tourists here. Construction for a little restaurant is ongoing. Locals are friendly and with distance. Visiting the archeological parc was not possible due to the pandemic.

Report Check-In

Very nice but very hot when we visited. No shade in the parking area. The river looked good but was in flash flood mode, so take this into consideration when visiting as NY desert river in the summer so you don't get caught in a flood!

Ended up staying 3 nights at the dirt lot (not the paved lot before it) with a little playground climbing thing for our daughter, toilets open occasionally in the day if anyone shows up to open them lol, and beautiful hiking/swimming up the river canyon for hours. No charge - we chatted to the 2 ladies who work at the ruins and they were friendly and welcoming. (There is a shower in the ladies toilet, during the rare times that the toilets were open)

We arrived at about 5 pm, too late to do the guided tour as the guide leaves at 4pm. But the women looking after the place allowed us explori g the site on our own, use the bathroom and camp at night, everything for free. Awesome location to camp! Great view into the red gorge with lovely pools to swim. Highly recommended!

They are building a new road connecting the Hulaco site with the camping, therefore we were not able to access the parking lot but were allowed to stay at the paved space right before the entrance. The canyon is very beautiful and they are so proud to show the museum of the hualco history!
