After attempting to stay the night at the other sites around the lake, we were told by the police that the area isn't safe at night. They recommended us this camping which has also the police office on it that is open during the night. The guardian Raoul lives in a small cabana on the left. Very basic facilities but safe place. We paid 400 pesos (2 people in a van).

Ok for one night, but traffic on a friday until late in the night. Maybe calmer during the week.

Still the best option in this area (we looked at 3 different places)

Very nice view!!

Be careful: Fresh and quite deep gravel at sides on the ground. We nearly got stuck with our 2x4 Van (3,5t)

Stayed without any issues and would stay again; however we have had better nights at Cracker Barrel.

First off; there is no RV parking. We went in and asked, and they told us to park in the back and take up as few spots as possible. Our understanding was, that they didn't want overnighters taking up more than one spot during opening hours due to relatively limited parking.

We could however back our 25-foot RV into a parking spot in the back of the lot right next to the trash shed. While we were out of the way there, we also stepped right out of the door and into food waste on the ground - so if we were to stay again, we would park a few spots away from the shed.

There is a Planet Fitness right behind the Cracker Barrel and that seems to attract quite a bit of (loud) traffic into the evening and early night. But it didn't disturb our sleep.

There was 2 other campers spending the night in their vans.

Before Nono main street, turn left and you'll find Estancia Nono.
With bathrooms, wifi, a wide place to set an RV or a tent, Andrés -the host- will share his space and also options to eat, his grill and hang-out around.
This place is close to the detour to Tandayapa and has options very close for bird-watching and trails.

We slept here in two occasions. People are nice, including "the chief". according to Chami's citizens, the city is safe. However, the gendarmerie is really quite. Suitable also for big caravans, 4x4 is not necessary.

ONLY TENTS & CABANAS
we wanted to stay overnight here with our camper but they didn't let us. they told us that the last RVs got stuck in the camping area. we asked if we could then stay at the parking lot for one night - but it was not ok either; at least they let us shower before we left.

There is a dump station and non potable water here. There wasn’t a sign to pay or to not use if you aren’t staying there.

talked to the local toilet guy in the park and he said it wasn't safe. there's nobody here at night which makes you an easy victim. apparently armed robbery's happen!

we went to the cascade parking 2km further up the road

We can highly recommend the garage. Matias repaired and painted our damage to the door in the best possible way. He was very dutiful and trustworthy and asked a fair price. We recommend.

Great Spot!! There are 2 or 3 spots that can accommodate larger vehicles (I'm 40' and have plenty of room).
There is a little dog park connected to the lot and a bunch of restaurants and bars within a few blocks!

Right on the beach, parking along the side of dirt road where locals park to go surf. Ask for Mike and take a surf lesson for $60, he will take care of you and your family. He has lived in Cerritos for 35years and is very knowlagable. As for the camping it's very safe and friendly, lots of tourist during the day but gets quite at night. Bar and restaurant 50yards away. Vendors on the beach selling different stuff. Great place to stay and not have to pay at Cerritos.

Not sure that a 4x4 is strictly required. A lot of aircraft traffic in the evening but the night was quiet

We spend a quiet night. The shooting range activities stopped by 6pm. Not too trashy. With a little effort the place could be clean

Very big parking lot, go around the back of the building and there’s plenty of space and not too much noise. There were some RVs and vans there and a few cars that may have had campers. Pretty nice PF with clean, nice showers and couches in the black card lounge.

We stayed at this camp because we had to be up early in the morning for a tour. It’s fairly noisy from traffic until late, but it’s tolerable for a night.

Wasn’t bad beyond the normal noise of a rest stop. Clean big grass area for the dogs. Seemed like a decent amount of spots were still open overnight

went to both this butterfly, and el Rosario - one day apart.

el Rosario was far better, so if you have both as options I'd suggest going to it. there were way more butterflies, the entrance fee was cheaper, parking was free, staying overnight was free, and the hike was shorter.

at this one, they charged 60 pesos to park and although there were only a handful of cars in the lot closest to the entrance, they made us park in the farther lot. not a big deal, but it wasn't a great first impression.

the ticket booth wasn't clearly marked, and when we found it, there was nobody there. this was at about 2pm, so during the busy part of the day. someone showed up, and we paid her the 100 pesos each.

we then go to start the hike and we're told a guide is mandatory (I don't think this is true) and that we have to wait for 8-10 more people to show up. there are no new cars arriving, and not that many people here this day. 8-10 more people might NEVER show up. he tells us our other option is to pay 250 pesos for a private guide. no thanks.

we waited a couple minutes and then just started hiking up ourselves. nobody stopped us, and we saw other groups that didn't seem to have guides either.

the hike took us about 45 minutes up and 20 minutes down, so it was about 1.5 hours in total. a bit of a grind in places, but not too bad - the worst part is the elevation that you're hiking at.

very nice little place right on the beautiful beach. there is electricity, WiFi, showers, toilets and drinking water. as well as light, if you want. Highly Recommended. 5000pP, owner quirky but very nice and tries very hard

Other areas were pretty full. Came down this road as far as the gate. Turned around and stayed on the side of the road - wide enough and recently graded. Early sunset behind the hills. Nice and quiet, except for coyotes. Trying to get to this area (one of the other checkpoints) with google transfer from app = redirecting me to a location miles away. Just make sure you go into Bowie, then take Apache Pass Rd south. Then the app works fine. Maybe my coordinates will work better.
