Very quiet site along river. Road is just before bridge. Would be tight for 2 vans as only 1 small level spot.

Good road into the campsite. We pulled into a spot above the river just past the Ranch at a fork in the road. Flat parking area. Okay T-Mobile service. Train goes by every once in a while but is drowned out by the sound of the river. A couple of cars went by but was peaceful during the evening.

Stayed the week prior to May Long Weekend, and found the park was open and a couple others were camping. Stayed for free as the park wasn't officially open yet according to the ranger, who said it opens for May Long. Beautiful spot, no bugs at the time, lots of trout jumping, clean pit toilets.

Great spot! Very clean even with numerous other vehicles in the spot. Decent sized pull outs. Might get lucky in a larger rig if there aren’t many others. There were quite a few vans/cars here for both nights we stayed. You can scramble down to the beach or enjoy the views from up top

It's closed! There is a chain to access to the spot. The only option is the "campground".
Admin please update this spot.

Take the first dirt road toward the water on west side of the dam, near the bulletin boards. Do not proceed straight as spring protected areas for endangered birds. Drive down the gravel road. Camp sites are indicated with signs. The water levels have gone down so water is further away. Clean, quiet site. We were not disturbed. One other rig camped far away. Feasible for big rigs but you have to back in. On gravel/sand surface with small trees around - we made it with a 27 ft fifth wheel.

Next day there was another lady who want's COP 15'000.- after a long disscusion and call with the boss we paid it.

Street parking for a couple cars or small vans. I sleep here overnight in my car maybe once a week. This is overflow parking for apartments nearby. It starts to fill up around 6 or 7p - so get tucked in early. It's quiet with a large grassy field nearby.

Nice hostel in Drake Bay with open kitchen, toilets, (warm) showers and green all around. Payed 7000 each with four persons, bit pricey but the good wifi makes up a lot. Had to push up an electricity cable to get in (we're 2,90 meters high).

Awesome little camp spots for a night! I would recommend driving past the gates before you get settled so you know where the restrooms are - past the swimming pool and past the park. There are signs directing you to the little restroom building. I’m certainly glad I did this because I ended up using the restroom building as a short-term storm shelter the night I was there. Thankfully, it was just high winds and some dust blowing around; nothing damaging.

Exactly, not a bad place to be and save for 2wd. We had the place for ourselves. Camels and coyotes come to visit. Make sure you climb up the dunes.

Amazing place to stay. There were a few groups in the evening who came to watch the sunset (which is so amazing to see here). We were alone after dark and had a quiet night. Such a wonderful place to wake up to.

Crossing from Guatemala to El Salvador.
The money changers came up, so we changed our quetzals to U.S. dollars first. Always check the exchange rate before you get there, so you know the value of your money. And remember they’re providing a service and need to make money, too.

Started the border process at 7:15 a.m. on a Tuesday and we were done by 8. It would’ve been faster, but the TIP lady didn’t officially start working until 8, so we were delayed waiting for her to arrive. The regular photocopy place also doesn’t open until 8. So you may want to not arrive too long before then.

First we got our passports stamped out inside.

Then we went to the outside window to work on our TIP suspension (always suspend rather than cancel if you can, in case there’s an emergency and you need to return the way you came).

For our TIP suspension, we needed title, driver’s license, Guatemala TIP, driver’s passport, copy of exit stamp in passport, and copies of the other documents.

The official went to check our VIN.

We photocopied our exit stamp at Asedua on the other side of the border. It isn’t normally a copy place, but maybe they would help in a pinch like they did for us.

Overall, an extremely smooth process. Everyone was professional, kind, and helpful. A lady from the tourism board also came up with a tablet to do an exit survey with us.

Crossing from Guatemala to El Salvador.

We crossed the bridge and parked.
A TIP guy checked our VIN and license plate against our Guatemalan TIP.
We got out and walked to the tent for a temperature check, passport check, and for them to check a little white visa paper we were given before leaving Guatemala. Because of CA-4, we did not get passport stamps.
They didn’t ask for any vaccination documents at all, just the temperature check.

Back to the same TIP guy for computer work.
We provided driver’s passport, driver’s license, and title. He took the copy of our Guatemala TIP.
He also took photocopies of our title, passport, and driver’s license that we had.
He wanted a copy of our canceled passport stamp, but we didn’t have an extra and he didn’t care.
Then we were sent down to the Aduanas building for the longest part of the process.
We handed them all the TIP paperwork we’d just been given, and driver’s original passport.
The official disappeared into his office forever while we waited outside. (There were two people ahead.)
Finally, my husband was called inside to sign and print his name under signature on our new TIP and a copy.
We didn’t pay for anything.

The process took from 8-9:10 a.m. on a Tuesday morning. There was a checkpoint right around the corner where the police checked our new TIP.

There are 10+ sites on this road. Some nicely shaded. And there is even a wee pond. Clean sites, road not too bad. Good cell service since there is a tower nearby.

I went here and the island is very tricky. the area looks like it's an old gravel pit. and it looked like the locals just go there and wreak havoc. don't bother to drive up all the way like I did to the end of the road it's all private property. or the other side of the island its the same thing. to be honest I would not bother trying to Camp here unless you really needed a spot.

Good enough campsite. Lots of highway noise. Windy and couldn’t paddle board much. Friendly vendors come to sell ceviche, blankets, hats, hammocks, etc. Ceviche was amazing!! Saw bioluminescence here :) Pretty sunrise!

Clean, bright place to stay. Pulled in around midnight. Not too loud and feels safe.

Clean rooms with ensuite bathroom (hot water!) and western toilet. It is possible to park inside the gate for a few vehicles, but it is not big rig friendly. The gate is quite narrow and you park more or less at the terrace, but it is fine.
They also have a restaurant, which is ok.
We paid TSH60.000 including breakfast.

Road in was muddy and covered with snow and I got stuck part way down. Scout the road first in early season! Lake was also frozen. Stayed at pullout on roadside just South of turnoff to park.

Not the best service, but ok for the price!

We stayed for one night at the single spot at the lake. Perfect spot, not to close to the highway (as the first level) and you are not blocking any other people (as we may have done at the second level). Toilets are clean. Please use the garbage bin; we found over 30 beer can’s.

Really lovely spot, we had a great time here out of season, incredibly quiet and yes, the wind picked up, but the nearby houses provided sufficient shelter. There are options around the corner if you need to hide! Gorgeous sunsets, incredible town. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We stayed 2 nights, paid 200C per night for 1RV, 5 people (2 adults, 3 kids) with electricity. There’s a restaurant but closes at 6:30pm. Very quiet. Best sunsets ever. The view on Concepcion volcano is perfect. Beach clean and not busy. We rented 3 kayaks for a day for 25$. Nice and respectful people. 2 toilets and 2 showers okay. We loved the place. For the price, it is a highly recommended stop.
