Something not right?

Description

This place is huge and fantastic! It has a lot of long term residents from mostly the US and Canada, but also plenty of space for those passing through or weekending from Guadalajara. The spots are well shaded under large trees and every spot has electricity and water (some/all have 30 AMP available). The pools (yes, more than one) are clean as are the washrooms and showers. They have about 5 WiFi connections so you just new to choose the one that suits your location best. If you are a sports fanatic, than you may be right at home with the volleyball, beach volleyball, soccer fields, basketball and tennis courts all inside the park walls. A lighthouse is locate closest to the water that you can walk to the top of, and the area around the lighthouse also doubles as a off-leash area. Plenty of playground equipment do kids as well. We payed 300 pesos for one night. 4 stars in my books.

Latest Check-Ins

We stopped here for one night and ended up staying for a week. At first I was skeptical due to some negative comments on social media. These negative comments are not all accurate. This is very large facility with cold and warm pools. Hot water showers and nice grounds to walk around. It is very quiet at night and safe. The facility was at its prime in the 80s and then deteriorated but the last few years they have been investing to bring it back. The toilets and showers is next to be updated; they know about it. It is a good location to use as a base to explore Guadalajara or Chapala by bus. It is a 30 min walk to the village of Jocotepec bus terminal. The village also has all the necessary amenities and is safe to enjoy.

What a great place to hang out for a week! Pricing is 300 pesos per night, or 1400 for a week. The 5th-7th night is 1400 total. Hot showers, pools, free laundry, sewer, non-potable water, electricity, tennis. Walk to town in 30 min. The town plaza really comes alive after dark with lots of street vendors for cheap eats. Bus from town to Chapala is 15 pesos per person one-way. To Guadalajara is 33 pesos, takes about 2 hours.

300 peso per night. Full hook ups. Mostly long term rvs. A bit of a weird dynamic with the long term campers. We showed up on a Saturday and there were loads of tents next to the soccer field with families playing. Wifi is really good. 2 pools and lots of area for kids to play. Pretty quite considering how many people are around.
Bathroom and shower are kinda gross, not sure if they ever get cleaned but it all works.

We have stayed here multiple times in Winter over the years on our way further south. Quiet, comfortable, friendly. I have a question for those who have been here in Summer: Is it quiet then, too, or crowded and noisy? Thanks, Steve.

It´s such a nice place:
Water (good pressure)
Sewer (at all sites)
30 AMPS (They told me will put 50 AMPS soon
WiFi ( The best I have experienced in Mexico 20 MG Fiber Optic)
Installations (Not bad, they are working in painting and details)
Nearby: Medical Services, Tianguis; street market, Convient store, etc.
40 minutes away from Guadalajara
30 mintues away from Ajijic
Weather is really good not too humind and no too hot.

Good place but I do not recommend it, there is a man who says he is a monk or something, walks naked and changes his outfit in a place exposed to all, very unpleasant and not good for family or children, the managers seem not to care.

As described; we stayed 2 nights; got very busy with bus loads of young people during the Eastern holiday..so we had the „benefit“ of a Mexican life band during the day&night..but it wasn’t so bad/loud; the nearby water from the lake looks not very good for swimming so we had no experience with that

Great location in a retirement community at Lake Chapala. Nice waterfront walkway with lighthouse, lots of amenities (thermal pool, billiards, onsite restaurant, playground, soccer field, good WiFi). We paid 300 pesos per night for 2 people. It gets crowded with tent campers on weekends so I'd avoid checking in on Saturday or on a holiday. Showers and toilets are rundown and could use upkeep.

Huge yes , Fantastic not so much ... ok for an overnighter , friendly snowbirds and local Mexicans ... place is a little run down (I am being generous) nice spots , place smells bad and lots of bugs ... seen worse , but seen a lot better .... if your an overlander you won’t like it , if you want WiFi , plug ins and a swimming poor then this is your place

Pat et Nic en Rialta. Emplacement que je recommande fortement. Grands espaces et grands arbres pour l’ombre. Tranquille et climat idéal après la chaleur des plages du sud. Tous les services sont compris et le wifi est très bon. Accès à douches chaudes et piscine. 300 pesos par jour. Non loin de Ajijic, Chapala et Guadalajara

Pat et ic en Rialta...belle place très boisé, tranquille, climat idéal après la chaleur des plages du sud. Tout compris et le wifi très bon. Douche chaude et piscine ! 300 pesos la nuit !
Je vous recommande cette place non loin de Ajijic et Chapala !

We were disappointed about this place. it was very run down. Toilets were dirty, broken or even missing. Showers were cold. We only stayed for one night (dry camping) and they charged us 300 pesos. We've stayed at way more beaitiful places for less money in Mexico. At least it was quiet at night. In our opinion it's not worth the money if you don't need to hook-up.

This place is truly amazing! Super quiet and very natural surroundings. Amazing Concierge and services for everything you require. Restaurant and food items for purchase. Water is super good and very soft! Electrical power is 30A and works very well. Very close to the medium sized village of Jocotepec and close to all of the Great Lake Chapala communities and only a 30 minute drive to Guadalajara with all major stores like Costco and Home Depot. I have nothing but good to say of this beautiful park and it’s amenities and services! Try it and you will be so happy you came here!

finally a great RV park with great WIFI
huge sites
great people
and only 4500 mexican pesos per month

It is what it is. For a Mexican RV Park, it is a great deal and a very nice place. For sure a 4 star for Mexican standards. It would not get that much up north, but then again, most RV parks in Mexico fall below the U.S. standards, so expect something with Mexican standards. Other than that, you get tennis, volleyball., swimming, menthol steam room, thermal heated pool and a beautiful view of the lake in a quiet area of town. Most of the time it is quiet, but on weekends, holdiays and sometimes when a large group visits, it may get loud and the park does its best tring to keep everything under control, including quiet time at night. Don't pass this up. You will not be in Kansas anymore. And you will not be in Ajijic or Chapala either. Which is where all the action is. There is a lot of traffic and so many English speaking foreigners that you would think you were in the U.S. Everything is overpriced and busy. Jocotepec is much more economical and does not have the traffic or the crowds. It is up to your personal taste.

it was great
the wifi is working great since jan 2018.
24 hours secrurity and huge sites

Have been here 4 months...great rv park...friendly,accommodating staff...room for big rigs. WiFi works👍👍. Close to town and other places.

I enjoye the stay a lot, it has many green areas and lots of trees. The water pressure is great and it ahas 30 amp.
The view of chapala lake is breathtaking, and the thermal water pool is wonderfull to enjoy.
Some of the buildings seem to need a little maintenante but the 2 months we stay we saw people working on them all the time, so im guessing when we came back we will be up to some good news.
The price is good because you get to use the facilities, the bathrooms near the camping area are ok.. but the ones by the pool are recently renovated.
This seems to be a huge sport´s club, from decades ago and it seems like they are doing a great job on bringing it back as a country club and rv park. The sites are really big, We had somr trouble to get in because of the height of my rig, but they trim some trees and we got the place we wanted with the best view.
Happy to visit back for another two months .

This place is well described so I’ll try to keep it brief. Yes, it is borderline creepy as the playgrounds are falling apart etc.. but our kids had an absolute blast. They loved the playground, and thermal pool (lukewarm). We had lovely Canadian neighbors who took the kids to see the cows and sheep by the lake. The town of Jocotepec nearby was really neat and we highly recommend going their malecon.

200$pesos per person for camping
We were on motorcycle with our tents
You can throw your tent where ever you want. The facilities are very old and much of them are abandoned. Still a very quiet place with a nice pool. Very safe

Big park ... lots of room for any size RV Right next to Lake too!! Stayed til Jan 2

Very huge rv park, We couldn't find the 2nd set of showers that was suppose to have hot water. Something to keep in mind is the laundry facilities are for a week or more camping. They did accommodate us, however keep in mind. Great water pressure through out the park. For us it was a great layover for our next leg of the trip.

This is a strange place, for the lack of better words.
First be aware mid November driving in a dusk there are miles of bug clouds you cannot escape.
Paid 300 pesos for our truck camper for the night.
The grounds are beautiful, there is 1 poorly maintained bathroom in the RV area. There are 2 pools and a second very large bathroom building next to the large pool. However found out next morning that there is currently no water going into the bathroom building, so no shower.
The gate out to the lighthouse was locked.
An odd huge place......

Nice place to stay. 2 swimming pools, playgrounds, sport groundd. Beautiful view on the lake. Free Laundromat.
A good place around Chapala lake.

Bit of a tight fit for Class A's: it seems most Mx RV parks don't prune trees back enough Great concierge, very helpful, perfect English. Wifi's good in campsite.

what a great place!!! the best Rv in mexico! and the people working there is awesome!
great pools! pet friendly! great view!
100% recommended

Best trailer in mainland, full-time and temporary trailer park and resort. $300 pesos per camper for 2 people for 1 nigth. $1,400 pesos for a week $4,500 pesos for a month. Nice and clean green areas. Beautiful Lake view.

A very nice campground. Full 30 amp sites with water and sewer. WiFi is spotty but good. Spots with both sun and shade. Two swimming pools, one huge pool that's cool, and one smaller pool that's warm. Tennis courts, volleyball courts and soccer fields. Very comfortable.

At the first glance this place looks weird but it turns out to be really nice! The pool as well as the areas are clean. Quiet, all accommodations (except kitchen).
Price is 250 pesos per night for a van and 300 pesos for camper, non negociable. Cheaper for a week.

RV park resort

Like described. But we get soon: "take your dog on a leash!".

Like described.

Roca Azul is an amazing place full of nature and helpful people. It is very close to Chapala and it has all the services to have a wonderful rest. An excellent place to enjoy relaxation and family. The lake views are very nice, especially at sunrise. The thermal pools are really nice too. Excellent choice for quality Vs price.

lots of camping and RV sites. Free wifi. Free laundry. Free showers - first day was nice and hot but next 2 days were cold. Paid 75MXN per person per night. Had a good couple of days stay with our dog. there are two pools, a tennis court, soccer fields and basketball courts. Restaurant is open everyday except Monday. The man Emanuel speaks good English. Watching sunrise over the lake by the lighthouse is a must.

RV Park with lot of Snow-Birds. Perhaps 20 years ago this was a nice place… but now it seams that they take only money and do nothing for infrastructure. Restrooms are ok an showers are by the hot pools. WIFI is slow and unstable.

Nice place. $300 pesos a night. Very friendly neighbors. Bathrooms are clean but I did not see showers. Restaurant was closed.

A great place! Plenty room for playing with the kids. Two pools, a playground and several fields for tennis, basketball and soccer. Grassy und shady spots with full hook up. Fast wifi, ask for the codes at the reception. A lot of workers who repairs and clean up the things. Bring enough food and drinks and you will have a relaxing time. Also good for big rigs. 300pesos for two adults and two kids.

What a great place! Plenty of room for relaxing and playing with the kids. Two pools, a playground, soccer field, basketball field etc. Great view over the lake, no access. Shady and grassy spots with full hook up, good wifi. A lot of workers were repair and cleaning up all the things. 300pesos per night for two adults and two kids. Bring enough food and drinks, there was nothing to buy. a very relaxing time. no problems for big rigs.

Nice little place but, as with many we've seen, everything is right on the verge of being run down. A large event going on when we were there but still pretty quiet. The staff handed out wifi codes that don't work- turns out they were giving them out to all the kids here playing soccer so the long term residents- all who are super friendly- changed them so we got the right codes and got right on. Over all just fine for a few nights

Great place. Very quiet during the week, busier during weekends. Warm showers, electricity, wi-fi. We payed 250 pesos for a small RV. There is a heated thermal pool and an unheated larger one. Take a spot in the back, near the playground, where there's a lot of shade and a beautiful view of the lake.

$300 pesos per night. 30 amp service water and sewer. Links to have seen better times but it is winter. Campground is nice and shaded. There was a big rig caravan with 25 rigs when we were here.

ROUGH

The electricity is totally unpredictable, and because the water is powered by an electrical pump, when the electricity goes off (often), the water goes off as well. The electricity surged and fried my plasma tv....Note to self: Get a surge protector for the RV.....The RV park is down a looooong bumpy road. There is a massive bug problem. Although they have a gated access, this didnt stop one of the long term dwelling RV residents from getting killed in his RV on the property...Also- somehow the people who run this place are getting the reviews they dont like removed from iOverlander.

yes this place was difficult to locate.our GPS took us to a closed entrance but finally went back to main gate and then went straight on road...saw a little motor home post..and knew we were on the right path..charged us 250 pesos for our truck/pop up camper...I thought the large pool was thermal water but it was very cold...many rv sites..not crowded..the grounds are beautiful..nice stay

Huge campground with multiple pools, basketball field, soccer field, etc. The showers are clean and the spots are under big trees in the shade. WiFi works good. Free laundry! M$250.

Nice and big campground - RV Park. Pool, showers, soccer field, restaurant. 250 pesos per vehicle. Full hook-ups. About an hour from Guadalajara and a little isolated. Not easy to find. Better to arrive during the day as gate is closed later in the evening.

Huge Place, 5 other permanent Campers here. laundromat included, flush toilets, several showers. We Ppaid MXN 250 per Night. Many ants on the Grass. Very clean, well maintained....basically what the others said before. Wifi coverage not so Good at some spots. Friendly english speaking staff

Like a lot of things in Mexico, this place is aged but very well taken care of. Very comfortable place to stay.

Pricey. $300 per night. $1400 if you stay a week. $4500 if you stay a month. Very large compound, everything is a 'walk' away. Getting old and very worn looking. Otherwise quite nice. Hot shower. Not plural, one hot shower for everyone.

We came to Roca Azul in 2012, and liked it so much that we decided to stay full-time. We made it our Mexico home. At $4,500 pesos a month, $300 USD, including utilities and wi-fi, you will find it hard to find anything close anywhere in Mexico. Roca is not for everyone. It is laid back, with not much going on, and the town of Joco is about the same. Weekends tend to get busy with the Mexican crowd, but not so much that it is out of control.
If you are looking for an activity based park, this is not the one. But, all that touristy stuff is only a few miles to the East in Ajijic and Chapala. Lot's of English speaking people with lots to do. Buses are easy to use and a direct bus route is about 2 miles from the park.
Roca has everything you need to relax and enjoy a lakeside retreat. Two swimming pools, one of them is heated, eucalyptus steam rooms, showers, tennis, volleyball and basketball, nature and fresh air, is all here.
Everything you can find in a major U.S. city can be found in Guadalajara, only 40 minutes north of Roca. And Jocotepec is big enough that you can get all basic needs, but small enough to enjoy a real Mexican pueblo.
Great place for long or short term. Weather is always great.

Just a beautiful place. I can just imagine what it looked like 30 years ago. Lot's of place. Town is about 25 minutes away, if you need anything, but just bring it ahead of time. Pool was open. The cafe/restaurant was closed, but looked amazing. Had a picnic with new found friends. 300 pesos, I found was a little steep, but it was a restful night.

This place is awesome!!! Paid 300. With that you get access to 2 pools, showers, giant grass fields tons of shade and blazing fast wifi. Right now I am in my tent under a canopy of trees on wifi. It's crazy.

This place is huge and fantastic! It has a lot of long term residences from mostly the US and Canada, but also plenty of space for those passing through or weekending from Guadalajara. The spots are well shaded under large trees and every spot has electricity and water (you will need the 125V RV adaptor for the power outlets though). The pools (yes, more than one) are clean as are the washrooms and showers. They have about 5 wifi connections so you just new to choose the one that suits your location best. If you are a sports fanatic, than you may be right at home with the volleyball, beach volleyball, soccer fields, basketball and tennis courts all inside the park walls. A lighthouse is locate closest to the water that you can walk to the top of, and the area around the lighthouse also doubles as a off-leash area. Plenty of playground equipment do kids as well. We payed 250 peso for one night, but the normal rate is 150 peso per person. friday and saturday nights they also have a huge bonfire beside the lighthouse, but be sure to wear pants as they do have a lot of bugs being close to the water. This place was an impressive trailer park, and although the road in is pretty rough, i give it 4 stars in my books.

We stayed here a week ago - just for one night but found it very comfortable albeit very quiet. We're traveling off season right now, but we will definitely go back in a few months to see it in it's glory! The manager was great, everything was clean and the few full time residents there, were very friendly!

PROS: right on the lake and there is a lighthouse you can climb, water hookups – CONS: seriously creepy campground that is part of a sports club that is part of a housing development. What? Also, bathrooms were unusable, electric was super sketchy (looked like something out of a cautionary tale about electrocuting yourself), free wifi was promised but never worked at our campsite, empty playground with giant clown head – 300 pesos/night, we stayed two and paid for one

This is a huge park with a pool, soccer fields and lots of RV spots and grass. There is internet inside the restaurant area and electricity at most of the camping sites. Wifi in the restaurant.

The campground is located in a large sports resort with views of the lake (no access to the lake). Very large (but cold in winter) pool and also a thermal pool which you can use to swim in winter time. Electricity / water / waste water at site. The entire resort - including the bathrooms - was already a bit old, but fairly well maintained. Washers and dryers included in the price.

The campground is mainly for long-term campers, which is evident from the pricing structure: 250 pesos / night, 1,200 pesos / week, 4,000 pesos / month, 20,000 pesos / half. Attractive prices for RV Storage: 600 pesos / month, 3,200 pesos / half-year, 6,000 pesos / year.
