Flamingo Inn Hotel 20.58200, -100.39923

The benefits of this campground is that you can walk to the center in 10 minutes, and that you will meet other European Overlanders by high chance. Electricity / water / waste water at site. Clean and very nice toilets, fast WIFI. Compared to other campgrounds quite expensive.

(Usually 260 pesos / day, discount for one week: pay 6, 1 day for free)

San Miguel RV Park 20.90716, -100.74915

It's a 20 minutes walk down the hill to the Centro Historico. The bathrooms are quite basic but clean. The showers were cold. Electricity / water / waste water at site. Great view of the opposite side with it's colorful houses.

Morrill RV Park 21.02489, -101.25247

Camping behind a Pemex station. Electricity / water / waste water at site. Toilets of the PEMEX can be used (very clean), Unfortunately no showers. Approximately 200 m across the street from the PEMEX a brown-yellow bus marked "Morelos" goes for 13 pesos / person to the center of Zacatecas. We first had a look at "Hotel Hacienda del Bosque", but with 350 pesos seemed to be far too expensive for a parking lot next to a highway.

Servicio Morelos Trailer Park 22.86194, -102.62351

Camping in a Mexican nature reserve. We camped right next to the deer coral. Nice options for hiking. Unfortunately there were no facilities.

Parque El Tecuan 23.90456, -105.02904

Fantastic campsite under palm trees overlooking the Pacific with romantic sunsets. Normally, electricity / water / waste water at site. Only our site had no electricity. But, however, had a wonderful tiled patio and beautiful ocean view. Electricity is charged separately. The bathrooms are clean and good, the shower has a strong jet and is very hot :-). Ok washing machines which you can use for 10 pesos per filling.

(Usually 150 pesos / day, discount for three days: pay 2 days, 1 day for free)

Celestino RV Resort 23.79477, -106.87990

You can not camp closer to the beach! Breathtaking panoramic views of the sandy beach. Toilets and showers were ok. Unfortunately, the very strong wind blew us sand into the car.

(The full hook-up seats cost $ 20)

El Mirador Hotel, Restaurant & RV Park 26.69358, -109.58883

American-style run campsite with 120 sites. Electricity / water / waste water site. Coin operated laundry, clean bathrooms, pool, shared palapa. Finally a WIFI that works!

(For use of electricity, the lots to 300 Pesos)

Totonaka RV Park 27.96483, -111.02538

Villa with fabulous views of the blue waters of the Bay of San Carlos. Two large terraces with ocean view, four bedrooms, four bathrooms, huge kitchen, a TV with 140 cm screen diagonal in the living room, three carports. A picture says a thousand words:

(Usually 1,080 US dollars / week)

Villa von Matt und Mayra 27.94050, -111.05721

Pure transit campground with very nice American / Mexican owners. Electricity / water / waste water at site. The bathrooms are located in a for a long time not used hut and were kept by the owner so poorly we did not use them.

(Originally 150 pesos / day, but 20 pesos less after an inquiry, since we do not require power)

Punta Vista RV Park 30.53587, -111.11686

Camping right in the center of town at the main road. No bathrooms. Water / wastewater at site. The place seems to be closed. Unfortunately, the only other option was very run-down, on the American tourism focused campground, but the rate would have been $ 24 or 300 pesos. We previously already moved on from Puerto Penasco being shocked as the campsite there only accepted US dollars and had no pesos for change.

(Originally $ 10 / day)

El Golfo RV Park 31.68546, -114.49803

Charmingly made sites righta at the lagoon. Electricity / water / waste water at site. Bathrooms are "muy rustico". Hot water was only available in the men's shower.

(Originally 200 pesos / day, but 50 pesos less after an inquiry, since we do not require power)

Centro Recretivo Mi Refugio 31.69837, -116.63508

Huge sites spread in the forest. Similar to a US National Parks with bench/table combination and fire pit. Some pit toiles are spread in the forest.

(100 pesos are the park entrance 50 pesos / person / day, camping is included in the price)

Parque Nacional Sierra San Pedro Martir 30.99974, -115.55486

Campsite with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and dolphins playing in the water. Electricity / water at site (if you opt for one. It is beautiful to camp right at the beach). The large bathroom (separately for men and women) has two toilets without doors and two showers with a curtain. However, the showers are nice and hot.

(Originally $ 10 / day)

Fidel's El Pabellón RV-Park 30.37017, -115.86355

Great site in the middle of the desert. We pulled out from the dirt road in the afternoon and camped hidden between the hills.

Wild camp - Between the mountains 29.84955, -115.50867

Great campsite with sites right at the water. Each site has its own shady palapa and a barbecue. The bathrooms were o.k. and clean, the showers hot. The dump station did not work. In the hotel / restaurant right next to the campsite we had excellent fish. There we could also use the Internet.

(Originally $ 10 / day)

Daggett's Beach Camping 28.97520, -113.54687

Camping right at the beach. The dirt road from Bahia de los Angeles to Punta San Francisquito is very rough but doable without four-wheel drive. However, while driving on the beach even we were stuck in the sand and could only go on with the help of sand panels and by airing down the tires. There were many dolphins in the water (as well as many dolphin skeletons at the beach).

San Rafael Beach North NO CAMPING 28.59923, -113.13117

Camping at the motel with a very good restaurant. Electricity / water / waste water at site. Good bathrooms and the hottest showers in Mexico.

(Originally $ 14 / day)

Malarrimo RV Park 27.96802, -114.03044

Fantastic Spot two meters from the turquoise waters. We met many nice people who stay at this beach for months (After Thanks-Giving, end of November, it will probably be very busy here). Some vendors come on over for water, fruits, vegetables, rolls, etc. Beside sufficient pit toilets, trash cans and nice Palapas no further camping facilities.

(Usually 90 pesos / day, but on the first night no one came for collecting, so we had 4 days for the price of 3)

Los Coyotes (Bahia de Concepcion) 26.71324, -111.90273

Camping at the beach. Not as nice as "Playa El Coyote" next door. The pit toilets and palapas were old. Too expensive for what it is.

Playa El Requeson 26.63835, -111.83177

Camping at the beach. Trash cans and a pit toilet were the only facilities. We could observe fishing pelicans and other water birds.

(Usually 80 pesos / day, but no one came for collecting ago)

Juncalito Beach 25.83153, -111.32859

Camping at the beach of the headland before Puerta Agua Verde. Fantastic as a campsite can be! In the evening we could buy Camerones directly from the fishermen and sailboats anchored in the bay.

We would, however,

strongly discourage people with similar sized cars to come here.

The last 50 meters to the beach are as steep and the road as full of deep bumps we partly slipped away. This was clearly too dangerous, but to reverse the road along the ocean was not possible.

Puerta Agua Verde 25.52462, -111.07349

After many very basic campgrounds on Baja California a super well maintained campground with clean, modern bathrooms, electricity / water / waste water at site, a swimming pool and laundry (no dryer, but clotheslines).

The bus to the city of La Paz runs right in front of the cafe from the campsite. It is marked with "El Centenario" and costs 8 pesos / person. Stay in the bus until the last stop. At the same place the bus runs back to the campsite.

Campestre Maranatha 24.09649, -110.38706

Camping right at the beach. The gravel road in was quite easy to drive, however, one should be careful on the beach, as you can easily get stuck there.

East Cape, Boca de Las Palmas 23.16195, -109.48884

Camping with individual sites. Restrooms available. Right at the hot sulfur springs of Agua Caliente.

(Normally is the entrance fee to the park probably 20 pesos / person, but with us was not in the driveway, even when leaving the barrier occupied)

El Chorro hot springs, river and canyon 23.44080, -109.80606

Camping under coconut palms at the beach next to a restaurant. The sites have concrete atios, all the plugs for electricity / water / waste water didn't work. The bathroom was clean, but there was only a shower curtain instead of a door and only the men's bathroom was open.

Trailer Park Isla Paraíso 22.54750, -105.74480

Sites in a beautifully landscaped tropical garden of the hotel. Several swimming pools and palapas to stay. Electricity / water / waste water at sites. The bathroom facilities were ok, but not the usual Mexican hotel standard. Unfortunately, the campsites were used as parking spaces and it was a little over the top with the grass watering, so everywhere quite muddy.

(Usually 225 pesos / day - more RV 250 pesos / day - discount for one week: pay 6, 1 day for free)

Paraiso Miramar Hotel & RV Park 21.44020, -105.19172

The campground is located in a large sports resort with views of the lake (no access to the lake). Very large (but cold in winter) pool and also a thermal pool which you can use to swim in winter time. Electricity / water / waste water at site. The entire resort - including the bathrooms - was already a bit old, but fairly well maintained. Washers and dryers included in the price.

The campground is mainly for long-term campers, which is evident from the pricing structure: 250 pesos / night, 1,200 pesos / week, 4,000 pesos / month, 20,000 pesos / half. Attractive prices for RV Storage: 600 pesos / month, 3,200 pesos / half-year, 6,000 pesos / year.

Roca Azul RV Park & Home Mobile Community 20.26545, -103.42127

Camping in the parking lot of the Centro Turistico. Bathrooms are quite "rustico", but clean. Right next to the square is the trailhead to the church in the petrified lava (about 45 minutes / route).

Centro Turistico de Angahuan 19.54217, -102.23412

Balneario with thermal hot spring which are cooled via individual basins. The water temperature is between 20 and 40 degrees celsius. One pool is approximately 12 meters long and has a temperature of 28 degrees celsius which is very good for swimming (especially in winter). Clean bathrooms with open showers. Very well kept garden in which the hedges are groomed in geometric shapes or to animals. Power at site.

The only negative thing: When we paid to stay for an extra day we were not informed that the pools will be cleaned and therefore will not be for use. For 280 pesos it is too expensive just as a transit campground.
