A campsite with all the comforts and a few meters from the town. Highly recommended.

Un camping con todas las comodidades y a escasos metros del pueblo. Muy aconsejable.

Beautiful simple space in nature on a farm
Parked our van under old blooming apple trees

Facilities are basic but the friendliness of the owners and the beautiful space makes up for it

Check out the walking path Guillermo created through his forrest. It's beautiful and a lot of fun.

Nice place to spend the night and walk the short loop (1.5km) on day time only a few birds, late afternoon/ early morning much more activity (birds, pigs, fox, rabbit). Friendly staff. Staid for free but donated some to the park. Road was in pretty good condition 25-30 minutes for the 20km off-road

Parque Nacional Tte Agripino Enciso -21.21053, -61.65703

There's no bathrooms, trashcans, or lights, but it was a good spot for the night. A few cars pulled in throughout the night, but I was the only one sleeping there. There's some road noise from 101, but it was a lot quieter than most rest stops or pullouts.

Quite a few really great spots out here, I came in the dark & didn’t see a big mud puddle as I turned in & got stuck, luckily some locals passed not even 5 minutes later & were able to pull me out! Spent the night & woke up to rain so left right away unfortunately, was fishtailing down the long dirt road but made it to pavement. Wish I could’ve stayed longer!!

Very quiet spot. Nobody around. No Tencel reception.

Super AMAZING place that you don't want to miss. Awesome owners and very friendly management & staff. Close to everything you need. Worth the price just for the pool and roof top relax area.

We camped here, needed our 4x4 and clearance of sprinter to get here. Amazing views and great camp at end of road (few on way there as well).

Big horn sheep keeping an eye on us and our dogs.

The rain started at 5am, when we got up we decide our best interest to get out before it go worsen
Great plan.

We had to infill the two bad wash out crossings with rocks to get through. Not having proper mud tires meant we also slid some once it got muddy. Exciting departure for us.

Hiked to hot springs after, posted update there as well. Trailhead listing.

Really good, there are several spots down the road.

After October 10th camping completely shut down (private and parks) so sleeping at the Irving it is. Bathrooms are clean. There were two semi-trucks parked here that left early in the morning.

Really interesting place, closed but explanation on the trail. You can even see some beautiful birds

Literally saw dolphins as we pulled up. I think there’s a thermal stream into the sea that starts a food chain nice for Dolphins.

Now 9000 entry and reservation required. Add the 1000 to the lady 50Om S past on the Careterra, for using her internet to register, and it’s debatable if it’s worth the time and the money IMO.

Very nice and quiet spot. Campsites very flat. Just a few others here.

Ponto de energia e água. Local tranquilo. Vi vários MH por aqui. Comércio muito bom. Preços dos mercados iguais aos outros, aliás a cerveja estava em promoção

Municipal Parking - Arraial d’Ajuda -16.48839, -39.07583

Perfect spot with the sounds of the ocean behind the cliff. As others have noted, there was a full timer and two others van lifers. We found this spot better compared to the one that’s a turnout that’s north of here. Our experience was that, there are many such pullouts or turnouts along this route without a “No Overnight” sign.

Asked at customer service and was ok to spend a night. Stayed at the end with the rental equipment out of the way, and away from traffic.

Wow, either I got unlucky or this place sucks. A gaggle of obnoxious car enthusiasts met here on a Wednesday night and I heard nothing but extremely loud revving engines for 2 hours. They raced around the area and returned to the lot for hours. If I learnt anything in my 5 years of living on the road, it’s that car noise sucks in America. I went to Calebas.

Next to the weighing area for trucks on the road, there is an abandoned farm shack. If you go through the gate (which was open), you can find numerous nice places to park and camp. We were with a campervan (not 4wd) and we spent a night here. We swam in the lake which was cold but nice. Very nice and very beautiful place!!

we got here in afternoon of Nov 2, it is such a nice place we decided to stay 2 nights. Easy access for big rigs, we have truck and 28' RV, had no problem and there were several big motor homes. Sites have water and electricity but need to go to headquarter for dumping.

Escaping Normal Life

stayed there last night and it was incredibly quite. as mentioned, it’s sandy but i pulled a lil teardrop trailer into a spot with a Subaru Forester (no 4x4) and had zero problems. cell coverage was literally one bar Verizon. when i was sitting in my car, i somehow got it to stream the Simpsons for a few episodes. but once i was in my trailer, it was zero coverage. it was odd to stream anything cause i couldn’t even send a text message before that. so that’s why i was surprised. zero bars TMobile however. some hikers/bikers started to show up at 8am for the trails. overall, it’s an incredibly quite space in the forest and i would stay here again. i would not try to get anything bigger than a Class B or small trailer like mine back there though. no place to turn around.

Inka Palace -13.52357, -71.96978

Large open area with a berm and a "no dumping sign."
Room for many rigs and right off the road. Might recommend avoiding on weekends as there are spent shell casings all over suggesting a shooting spot. 3 bars Verizon 4g

Aravaipa berm 32.85902, -110.67580

Awesome camping spot surrounded by a forest of super tall cacti. You follow a narrow set of tyre tracks on a slalom of zigzags to make your way through the cacti to get to this spot. You can hear the road but it’s not intrusive and you could be seen from the road if you have bright lights at night, but it’s pretty well hidden in the day. Fabulous for sunset silhouette photos
