Mountain view

A large side road with a stunning view on the mountain. Very quiet. Telcel signal

Creel/Batopilas junction

On the road, near junction with Creel and Batopilas. Large spot side road. Very quiet. Couple of spots.

Tacos Victoria

Excellent tacos (5/$55) and service! Try Campechanos ones with condiments (cebollas...). They have two adresses separated by a shoes store. The other sell good fruits!

Parque las acacias

We stayed here 4 nights, on the street next to the park. Really calm and secure all night long. With 4 kids, they were really happy to play in the beautiful playground every morning.
Near metro Coyoacan (5pesos/person!!!).
There is free wifi (CDMX).
2 minutes by walk there are "Fonda El Parna" with breakfast and toilets (5 pesos). And "La Artesana" (with pastries and good coffees).
The 4th night when we came back to the camper to sleep, there was a message on the windshield saying that we cannot let a vehicle a long time at the same place and need to move it within 3 days (so, we had till 7 nights! But moved after 4). No toilets at the park.
There are a lot of dogs on a leash during the day (there's also a dog park).
The tuesday morning there was a nice market in the park, don't know if it is like that every week.

Monarch butterfly at El Campamento

There are 4 monarch sanctuary, but this one is a "new" one! They wait for an official inauguration around August 2022. Not a lot of people and SO amazing! People are really kind!!! El Campamento is a "pueblocito" of around 1000 people. There's a hike of around 2 hours, entrance fee 50$ pesos/pers (20$/kid) + guide 300$ pesos. If you want horses, it is 300$ pesos/horse go-and-back. It worths it +++. Butterflies arrive each year at the beginning of December and leave between March 15th and March 20th (!!). We let a tip for the guys after the activity and ask if we can stay for the night : they charge us nothing more. A neighbor, Manuel, let us use his toilet and water. Again, THEY ARE SO KIND and lovely. The view around the pueblo is beautiful. We came with 4 kids between 1 and 11 years old and it was such an incredible experience. Just come and ask for the hike. I think we were the first RV they saw! Please be respectful and remember that the money that you give help the people here and help for the conservation of the butterflies.

Cerro Pelon- Monarch Butterflies & Viewpoint

We came to Macheros to go see the butterflies. NOTE THAT THIS SANCTUARY IS CLOSE THIS YEAR (2022). The 3 others are open. Or, you can go to El Campamento (where we went). We were taught that it is not close because of COVID, but because a forest exploitation starts recently... a bad one. Maybe by not-so-kind-but-powerful people. So they want to "hide" it. Cerro Pelon was the last enterely preserved forest. Maybe we assist at the beginning of the end... So sad.

Discos y tambores

Good place for your brakes. They change all of them for 8000 pesos.

Luigi's place

We park our small rv (21') at the end of the road, next to Luigi's palapas. It was 150 pesos/night, with access to rustic toilets. With kids, it was the better spot. Our baby swims in the little river and our big kids in the ocean. The 2 other coves have bigger waves. No Telcel anywhere. Possible to pay wifi at some places (70 pesos/day) but it is very slow. There are 3 species of turtles laying eggs here, between august and march. We saw a lot!

Next to the road

Spot next to the road. Did not sleep there, but we passed by at 6am and it was so calm and beautiful. (We were approx. 200 m further when we put the gps.)

La Llantera

To change or repair a tire. Incredible service and price. So kind guy!

Street parking with view

We parked right on the street here. It was more calm than the center, with incredible view on Peña and the city.

Difficult Run Trail

Parking lot by the road. Not much trafic at night and the cars goes slow because of the curves. Quiet. Nice walking trails. No sign about the overnight. Nobody bothered us.

Conservation Area

10 miles from highway 95. Nice night stop between New York and Washington. Very large parking lot, no sign for overnight. Perfectly quiet, near a river in a conservation area. Toilet. Bike path, walk along river. Fishing

Near National Mall

Nice spot right on l’Enfant Plaza street. Free for every night after 10pm and all day on sunday. Very quiet at night and also in the morning. Walking distance to all the main attractions.

Beaumont rest area

Overnight parking allowed, on the 400. Few RVs and trucks when we were there. Flushing toilets.

Beaumont rest area

Free dump station.
You can sleep here also FREE

Hole In The Rock Rd. First Mile

Ok for one night. A lot of people, little trees everywhere. We were near the road so in the morning, every car passed near our tent. It should be better to camp a bit further!

Capitol Reef NP East Entrance

Super too windy! We came at 4pm to install our tents. They broke!!!!! The view is beautiful.... but we need to find somewhere else to sleep.

Bryce Canyon NP - road 090

We found a spot a bit further, just after the cattle grid and on the other side of the road, to pitch our tent. Quiet night really near the entrance of N.P.

Kolob Terrace Rd near Zion NP

Spent two nights. Nice spot, a lot of people but reminds us a typical campground, guitar playing, singing...!

Kanab

Spent one night, at the ultimate end, where there's a trailhead. It was SUPER CALM and QUIET. We slept in the car and with one tent. Flushing toilets and Playground for kids in the park.

Kanab wild camping very nice!

Been there to sleep but change our mind.... a lot of glass from broken beer bottles and at 8pm, people with 4wheels doing trails! We've been at the city park (on this app), north of Kanab.

Cold showers and restrooms free

We took our Showers here (outside, cold) on a super hot day. You can enjoy the place ($$, free with the annual pass of NP), swim... till 8pm. After that, you need a camping permit (14$ I think).

Kaibab NF

Perfect spot. Pines around so we have protection against sun and wind! Right next to internet tour so we have always 3G or LTE. We were almost alone, on a weekend! If you walk (or take your car) a bit further on the road (opposite direction of national park) there is a pit toilet and some trails, next to a metal fire tour. Spend about 5 nights. Really quiet!!!!!!!!! And so near the Grand Canyon National Park (Grandview point).

Grand Canyon Mather Campground

We slept free at Kaibab national forest but came here for showers (2$/8min) and laundry. When you arrive at the campground, paying hot showers and laundry are right there to your right.

The Black Canyon trail with Saguaros

You can park your car here and walk on a trail to see a lot of Saguaros!!!! Free. September to April or early in the morning! We've been there with the kids.

Coconino National Forest Boondock

There were some campers but it was ok. Like others, nice view but not a lot of shadow and bit dusty.

Dear pass trail road

We went there but there was a ranger who was checking.... so we left and went on the 525 road. It is more like a parking lot.

Bref, on est curieux et on se demande qui vous êtes. (On dort dans la forêt nationale du Grand Canyon présentement).
