We asked the owner of the land and parked our van here while we did the Ausangate trek in 4 days. Jubinal is very shy but very sympatic. We paid 5 sol per day to park here.
You can also ask to put your vehicle in his garage. He also does accommodation, and you can eat typical "cuy" meal if you ask in advance.
Here is his WhatsApp : 913 483 428

You have to pay 20 soles per person here to enter. The man gives you an official ticket with the map of the Ausangate trek. It worth the money as the part on the 7 lagunas is really well maintain : panel with the name of the lakes, free camping and toilets.
Unfortunatly, be aware that ladies from other communities will ask you also money but they are absolutly no trek maintenance, no sign under the trek, no toilet.

Small rest area off 71, nice bathrooms, a couple well stocked vending machines, and picnic tables with barbeques. Tranquil overnight with a few other cars and semis. Can hear cars from the highway but not many pass through at night so wasn't too bothersome. Street lamps in the parking area are pretty bright so would be better to have some window shades.

Departure for vehicle ferry to Tanger Med. Buying tickets from Viajes Normandie (Carlos) in Barrios was quick, easy and least expensive way we found for open return ticket. Can just drive right up to ferry loading area in the port 1 hr before with your tickets. No need to pay pushers in the que area trying to fill out “fiche” for you to have ready for Moroccan police. Get entrance stamp to Morocco on the ferry. We did not receive an exit stamp at the passport check you drive through during boarding in Spain, but we’re told it’s computerized.

Arrival port for vehicle ferry from Algeciras. Easy place to begin Moroccan journey from. Follow signs for exit after disembarking. There is a vehicle scanner and drug dog checks at customs where vehicles are processed and small credit card sized paper given for vehicle. Ours had 6 month validity.

went here after 50,000 km across South America and my shocks weren't what they used to be. Super friendly guys who definitely know what they are talking about. They left for the weekend to work a 70 rider off-road rally so they definitely know they're off road bikes. they adjusted both front and rear suspension (including changing out the fork oil and all that) set the sag for me and my passengers weight +bags and it feels like a whole new bike now. they also changed out my chain and sprockets and some other random small things for 800,000 pesos (200 USD). if you need anything suspension related these are the guys, just check out all their amazing reviews on Google maps. highly recommend

The spotlight cars are hunters looking for hares. This is a common technique. Nothing to worry about

Pretty high ATM, maybe 50-60cm at the deepest point. Saw a Hilux get through no worries, but we decided not to risk it in our LWB rear drive van.

Camping extremamente familiar. Atualmente o proprietário Peder adquiriu e disponibilizou aos usuários uma internet via satélite da Starlink.

Little rocky beach next to a hotel. offseason only. Not so much waste, you cant be spottet from the street. Maybe for one camper or two motorcycles.

lady on phone insisted on asking what breed my service dog is. I informed her of the ADA.gov laws and she suggested I go somewhere else. I'm reporting them to the ADA.

You can’t go of the road to reach the point. You are able to park next to the road, but would not recommend to do for a night

Still exists & trial is still there, however you can’t follow google maps. I used Wikiloc to get there. View is beautiful, but the ground is not really even anymore.

Perfect spot to sleep, we were 2 cars and 1 RV.

This is a really nice place, except on weekends… lots of cars and moto with insanely high music blocking the entrance of the parking. We can’t sleep and we can’t exit the parking, we have called the police and they told us they just have one car so they can not come… a nightmare for this night

Super friendly staff. There are two water taps here. They let us fill in for free. Pressure not so great but if you have a 5/6 m hose you should be fine to find a place to stop and not bother the ones at the station.

Numerous available spots during the later evening hours, albeit subject to occasional municipal noise disturbances; however, hard to beat free.

None of the spots are super flat, but I didn't mind. Super large area, plenty of space to walk around for a bit. The area felt very secure. Overall, a great rest area.

This place is near the road and you are not completely out of sight. You can watch the fisherboats, some are there also during the night. Lots of trash around. All in all OK for the night, but there are more secluded and more beautiful places next to the sea on Qeshm.

Good place to stop in the winter for a night. Yes there is highway noise but we had the entire campground to ourselves. We did not use the toilets. Beautiful sunrise. Will stay again if passing through

Pernoitamos no Parque Nacional da Maçã. Várias tomadas com energia e várias torneiras. Local pertence à Prefeitura de São Joaquim. Antes fomos até o Centro de Informação Turísticas (atendimento excelente e com muitas dicas da região) e preenchemos uma ficha para permanecer no local. Noite super tranquila (há segurança das 19h às 7h). No período da tarde há uma atendente que fica nas lojas de artesanato e que estão a venda (local com muitos itens à venda).
Defronte ao Parque fomos até a COOPERSERRA. Suco de Maçã, torta e outros itens direto do produtor. Nota 10 a permanência no local e na Cidade.
