May 10th, 2022 Bruceport County Park and Campground

Nice place, just came to use the day use area. Really empty right now. Updated prices for 2022 are $45 for camping, $55 with hookups. Discounts for hikers and cyclers.

April 30th, 2022 Walmart Marina

Spent the night here, was nice and quiet BUT woke up to a $105 ticket from the police for parking overnight in a private lot. There is a small sign that says no overnight parking only at the entrance into the lot, not very visible.

April 30th, 2022 Mission Peak Trailhead

Potable water. Two spigots and a water fountain to fill your canteens or Jerry cans. No attachment for hose. Spigots are just behind the bathroom at the trailhead.

Nice hike up the hill too, beautiful hills and views from the top. Cows grazing. Dog friendly.

April 30th, 2022 Fremont park

Very nice park, had a peaceful quiet night there even on a Friday night. Were not disturbed. A few other vans and a big RV slept there too. We parked in the first parking lot on Sailway Dr northwest of this gps marker. Would sleep here again.

April 28th, 2022 Tommy's

Tommy’s permanently closed in March 2021 🙁 now some Chinese restaurant, did not try it.

April 25th, 2022 Walmart

Lots of RVs and vans in the parking lot. Seems like a good place to spend overnight.

April 18th, 2022 Walmart Santee, quiet

Security car came to us and said no parking overnight. Parking only for shopping. We left.

April 18th, 2022 Quiet secluded flat space

Just off of a quiet road, turn onto the dirt road and then the spot is immediately to your right. Pretty level. Close to the road but it is well hidden by trees. Not much traffic at all. Great sleep in the woods. Clean space.
Not too many options in this area on ioverlander.

April 16th, 2022 BLM outside JT Park Pinkham Trail

Nice spot, hidden from the highway by a big levee of dirt, can’t hear it much either. We came from the Pinkham trail and camped here on our way out of the park. The trail is actually not bad at all, only one little spot with a few rocks to clear. Other than that all nice dirt trail.

April 4th, 2022 Off the road

Nice little pullout 50’ from the road. Decent views of the mountains all around. Flat. Couldn’t find much else in this stretch of road to camp at. It is over 22 miles from the main road (where the sign said no camping for 22 miles)

March 19th, 2022 Fremont River veterinary

Very nice service and vet. Got us in for an emergency visit even though they were quite busy already. Our dog was wobbling and very lethargic, we were worried about rattlesnake or scorpion bite. Very nice people. Blood work, check up, and a shot of steroids to help with any allergic reaction and inflammation came to $186 usd.

March 19th, 2022 Wild Rabbit Cafe

Amazing restaurant with all day breakfast. Everything is super good and fresh, pastries baked the same day, nice veggie options. Great local coffee.
Breakfast burrito really good with local sausage. Really delicious veggie sandwich on a croissant. Loved the blueberry lemon scone. definitely stop by for a good meal if you’re in the area! Has wifi.

March 13th, 2022 Rotary Rock

Insane spot to camp. One of the most beautiful campsites we’ve ever been to. Bring some firewood. Amazing views.
The road is very rough getting here, definitely need proper 4x4 with low range and high clearance and diff lockers help too. A couple of very steep and technical spots rock crawling, I wouldn’t try it in anything other than a land cruiser, jeep, defender or similar. So worth it though if you have a capable and smaller rig.

March 8th, 2022 Wild camping 4x4

A few nice camp spots with good views, fire pits. Further down the forest road from the busy area with vans. The road gets tougher, high clearance needed, probably 4x4 too. No problem for a land cruiser but bigger rigs beware. Very peaceful and pretty.

March 8th, 2022 Tonto National Forest

A few spots in this area to camp. Quiet and dark. We took the off road trail up the hill to the right. 4x4 high clearance only. Found a spot to camp just a bit further down the trail. Windy but nice.

March 4th, 2022 Sunburst Veterinary

Not taking any new clients currently, all vets are super busy due to Covid it seems

March 4th, 2022 Bishop Creek

A few dispersed camp sites by a dried up creek. Private and secluded. Soft ground. Fire pits.

March 3rd, 2022 Buckeye remote spot

Keep driving down the main dirt road at Buckeye. Lots of campers everywhere. We kept driving and then eventually turned left onto a side trail to this beautiful hidden tucked away spot. Mountain views. Shelter from wind in trees.
Soft ground for tents, nice and level. Nothing prickly for dogs to worry about.
Road in is fine, should be ok in 2wd with normal clearance.

March 2nd, 2022 Cochise final spot

The main camp areas at Cochise were super busy. We took a little dirt road right after the gate entering the park up the hill. Rougher road so fewer people up here. A few small sites along the road up. At the end there is a beautiful and more or less secluded spot at the base of the cliffs overlooking the whole valley below.
Dog owners (and humans!) beware of sandspurs all over the place, spiky and very likely to get stuck in their feet. 3 bars LTE data from TMobile

March 1st, 2022 Bearfoot spring camping/picnic

A few dispersed camp sites and picnic table areas. Nice little drive. Very quiet. Be mindful of bears

February 25th, 2022 Ziggy's Roadside BBQ

Definitely worth stopping by if you are in the area. We loved the brisket and turkey, flavorful and moist. Fried pickles really good. Nice bbq sauce too, sweet and tangy and a bit spicy.
Shared a 2 meat plate with 2 sides and a drink for $17

February 24th, 2022 Immigration services

Quiet and easy on a Thursday evening. Open 24hrs. Pull in to the drive through Banjercito booth first to cancel your TIP, then into the main building to give in your FMM and get passport stamped

February 22nd, 2022 Parking Dr Velazco

Good secure parking near Roma Norte neighborhood. Really hard to find a good place to park in this area for a few nights, always check google reviews as many have reported thefts at other nearby lots.
This was the best estacionmiento we could find, nice guy running it, has cameras and a closed gate (plenty of height clearance). As with many lots in CDMX you have to leave the car key with the attendant.
Parked here for 3 days and our truck was safe and sound, paid 600 pesos for 3 full days.

February 21st, 2022 Paraje y camping San Efrén

Nice owner, paid 100 pesos per person. Beautiful spot right on the river. She can rent you kayaks too. Definitely not big rig friendly, tight fit through their gate but no height restrictions. Clean nice bathrooms and has showers too (cold only I think). Quiet peaceful night.

February 21st, 2022 Agriculture Checkpoint

No one there on a Monday afternoon. Drove right through.

February 16th, 2022 El Meson

Nice tucked away patio for some pub fare. Best wings we’ve had in Mexico, would recommend the red hot (like buffalo) and bbq. Ask for them a bit more well cooked if you want crispy. Good potato wedges. Great service. Good prices.

February 16th, 2022 Hospital veterinario

Nice little pet shop and veterinarian. Our dog needed a rabies booster shot, very nice vet, quick service, got the rabies shot for just 150 pesos good for a year.

February 14th, 2022 Dog Park - Parque Pushkin

Small dog park to let your pooch run and play with other dogs. Local let their dogs off in the open area of the park too.

February 12th, 2022 Rancho Taxco

Very nice spot. Paid 250 pesos for 2 people for 1 night. Easy to walk to the Center. Narrow tight streets to get up, wouldn’t recommend for any larger sized rigs. Nice owners. The gates were locked when we returned around 11pm on a Saturday so we had to hop the stone wall to get back in.

February 12th, 2022 Yolotl Brewery/Biergarten

Very nice local micro brewery with a big patio, super friendly owner. Beers from 70-90 pesos. Pet friendly. Currently have an Amber, Oatmeal Stout, and Blonde. Out of the IPA right now. Brewed here in Taxco and all of the beers are actually really good! One of the better micro breweries we’ve been to in Mexico.

Live music today on a Saturday night. Chill vibes.
