McDonalds

Arrived here in the evening to stay the night behind the McDonald’s’s along with 5 other RV’s and Vans. At 1:15am local police came knocking and advised us to leave the place as it is not permitted to park (County law) and that it is private property. A person we know that was 1 of the RV’s had stayed a few nights without issues. So be warned, come here at your own risk.

The McDonald’s closes at 10:00 pm and the Winn-Dixie closes at 11:00 pm so the parking is empty.

Quiet Street with Free Overnight Parking

Good Quiet street parking beside a park to stay the night. We came here looking for a spot that was near a pemex (which we never found), and found this spot to park our van. Great Tacos place across the street to have a meal.

Campamento Tiempo & Espacio

Added photos to complete my previous post as I had no internet connection.

Campamento Tiempo & Espacio

Moises and Lucy are very nice and helpful camp hosts. They allowed us to clean our vehicles after a few days of driving in the mud. For $100 pesos per person and $100 pesos for vehicle, we have electricity, water, sewer, showers, bathrooms, outside kitchen and access to a small creek to relax with cool water when it’s warm. We stayed for 2 nights as we were going to the Tamul waterfalls the next day which was an amazing trip. Moises recommended a guide named Guillermo that brought us in his pickup to the site ($1,600 pesos for 4 people) and we walked for 15 minutes to get on our boat to the waterfall which took about 1 1/2 hours. As we left at 10:00 am and came back around 3:30 pm we decided to spend a 2nd night and relaxed after a very nice day at the waterfall. Highly recommend this camping for all size RV’s.

Hotel San José

Arrived here yesterday in early afternoon during a rainy day and there was mud everywhere. Thankfully this hotel has a large parking lot and all gravel, though it is steep to enter and not too level. Asked if 2 RV’s could stay the night and staff called owner who said yes and at no charge. Staff was very nice and one spoke some English and she was very helpful. The four of us had a good meal with several beers for $900 pesos including tip roughly $50 bucks Canadian. Used bathroom, electricity to charge our power station. Very happy with our stay here. The hotel seems very nice too.

Rincon de Luna

The coordinates for the entrance are
(21.8776258, -100.0422217)

Make sure you use these as the ones indicated on iOverlander will have Google make you pass by a small dirt road on the canal that is not good. We scratched the top of our rack on our van with low branches and the road is small and very rough.

Using my coordinates will bring you on a good road to the entrance.

Mission San Jose national park

It is not allowed or even recommended to sleep in the park as the friendly park ranger told me today. You will not be ticketed if you do, but it is not a safe but actually a bad neighborhood. He highly suggested that we not stay he overnight.

Rutherford Beach

Very nice spot to spend a night or a couple of days. Four RV’s parked on the sand near the beach. Very quiet and only the sound of the crashing waves to put you to sleep.

Nearby dumpster and toilets available.

Natchez Visitor Center

Stayed here for two nights (free) and visited the historic city of Natchez. Electricity, Dump station also available along with water (not potable) all for free, just sign in to the visitor Center.

Big rig friendly, but be warned that some use generators all day and night.

Parc des Écluses

Nice big wild Camping spot by the river. Great place to spend the day and night.

Cherokee Casino Parking Lot

Tried to go here today but there is major construction and the large parking is not accessible. Avoid come here probably for the next few months until construction is completed.

They are constructing a new building for interior parking.

Cabela's

Arrived late afternoon after visiting the city and spent a good night here. Only one other RV overnight.

Cracker Barrel

No problem parking here for the night. We have a 28’ Class C, and there was a fifthwheel, a small van and a small home made tiny house on wheels.

All the Walmart stores in the area did not allow overnight parking. The one we tried at 4200 Dillion dr, had police security cameras and that generally means there are problems in the area.

Walmart in Falcon, Colorado

Arrived late afternoon and left by 8:am the next morning. No issues staying here for the night. The store is quiet at night but there is noise from the highway. No other RV’s in sight when we arrived and none when we left. Good for a one night stay b

Muley Point

Great place for free camping. Arrived mid afternoon and only a few cars were here and all were gone at sunset. We have a 28’ Class C and had no problems getting here, but be aware that there is a 5 mile drive on a dirt road which is not recommended if it has rained or is going to rain. We are here with two other RV’s (our friends) so not sure how we’ll know this place is. It is worth the trip as the view is amazing but is windy at times.

Seven-mile Overnight Parking

Now $30 and $40 per night. $5 day use fee. Moving on to try and find a BLM up the road.

Beehive Campsites-Glen Canyon NRA

Great BLM location to stay for a maximum of 14 days. There are 6 numbered sites available with picnic tables. They were are all taken so we parked on the side and a few others did for the night.

Great location to take a long walk and enjoy the few with great photos to be taken.

beach parking

General parking $7
RV Parking $28

We came here last night with a 28´ Class C, but did not stay as Parking is until 6:00 PM.
One small class B 18’ did stay, as we came back this morning to spend the day at the beach and that RV is still here, so I guess it is up to you if you stay or not. Parking was empty last night except for the Class B, and this morning 8:30 about 20 cars, so not busy. During summer must be very busy here.

parking place secure easy and perfect to stay for one or more nights

Not sure about parking here tonight with our RV, but will give it a try as we are exhausted after driving for hours to get to Santa Monica and looking for a place to stay for the night.

Signs says no vehicles longer than 20’, wider than 8´ and higher than 8’. We have a 28’ Class C and wider and higher than 8’.

Will add another review tomorrow if there was a problem staying here.

Update of my review last night. No problem spending the night here in our 28’ Class C, except for finding a warning sign on our windshield this morning about our size. So park at your own risk especially in high season.

beach parking

Arrived here and found a no parking sign after 6:00 pm. Decided not to stay. See photo.

parking behind the bally's

Spent 6 days here from Dec 28th to January 2nd without any problems. Over a dozen other RV’s of every size parked here, even semi trucks. Gate opens automatically for buses and RV’s. No charge which is great. Used the savings to spend money in restaurants and casinos.

Hotel Playa de Cortès

This is a hotel with a parking area for RV’s with 3 services (water, 30 amp electric and sewer hookups) for about $20 USD. Great to spend one night to use all these services and then going to the free beaches the rest of the week.

Hotel pool is very nice to use but cold. The beach is nice but forget about swimming as it is full of rocks.

San Carlos wild Camp

Great location, near an amazing beach. I can hear the waves from our RV. Very quiet even though there are several RV’s nearby. May spend a few days here before heading back to Arizona for Christmas with friends.

We have a 28’ Class C and had no issues getting here and there is a large fifthwheel and a Class A as well. To park directly on the beach you will need a 4x4 not to get stuck in the sand.

Balandra

This is our second time here in a week. Arrived at night and a there were a few cars left from the day at the beach. No issues staying here last night it was very quiet. In the morning, also very quiet.

Playa Solitaria

Large parking of gravel and sand by a beach just off highway 11. Just garbage bins here, no bathrooms. Quiet but can get busy at times. We had a dozen cars here last night and some with loud music. Overall good place for a day or two.

Aquamarina RV park

We drove down the street in our 28’ Class C to this RV park and it is a very poor area. Many cars on the street have flat tires, broken windshields, rusted bodies (you get the picture). Once we reached the entrance to the RV Park, there was a gate and no one was there. Decided to turn around (a bit tight but ok) and go elsewhere. I would recommend that you do the same, especially with a big rig.

BajaSunrise RV Park Km 108 Los Barriles , BCS

Very nice RV Park for any size RV. Toilets and showers are nice and clean. George the owner is great, speaks English and very helpful. Stayed one night.

La Ribera public beach

Very nice and clean public beach. We arrived mid afternoon and it was very windy and it stayed like this throughout the night. Only one other RV and several cars, some with loud music. No issues staying here.

This morning there were several pickups and cars and about 20 workers raking and cleaning the beach. This seems to be a protected beach for turtles laying their eggs at a certain time of the year.

Eagles Nest Eco Palabas (+hotel)

Just passed by here and there is a gate with a sign stating private property. So not sure what this is.
