Really just a large parking lot. The Wi-Fi did not work. The staff closed the office early with no warning. Laundry only available through the office so it was impossible to do laundry due to staff leaving and no other staff available to buy laundry tokens. $480 pesos with no hookups

Report Check-In

Two nights here was not enough. We would like to visit again and hike around the area. RV park is in a nice location where we could walk to the beach, restaurants, Ley's grocery store, and many shops. Friendly place and Jose set us up with an electric regulator for approximately 400 USD. The regulator was very useful throughout our travels in Mexico. The park is rather tight but we didn't have any trouble with our 36 ft 5th wheel.

Report Check-In

We stayed 6 nights, fluctuating voltage. Lots of long-term, friendly snowbirds (mostly from Canada & the US). Caravans frequently come through. RV park is bordered by guestrooms, so can get louder on the weekends with cars coming/going late at night. Can be loud during long weekends/holidays or sometimes on the weekends due to nearby Salon de eventos (event center) and restaurants/bars. Be prepared as it is cheaper to pay in USD (cash or PayPal transfer) instead of pesos as the conversion is set at 22 USD to 1 peso (though this is not stated on the website!). Pool and hot tub (cold water except for 2 evenings a week), clubhouse, and decent wifi. Walking distance to the beach, oxxo, and nearby restaurants.

We stayed here on our drive south & today on drive north. January the RV Park was fairly full. It’s March now so people are leaving. Clean banos & hot showers! WiFi good, pool & hangout areas inside & outside. Mostly Canadian snowbirds here. Walking distance to restaurants. We paid 396 pesos for 1 night, no hookups. Good place for a night or two.

lovely RV park. English speaking. clear and concise instructions on staying here. some cement pads are choppy. $26us per night. kind and considerate staff. fruit for sale on Wednesday.. fish fo sale on Fridays.

Report Check-In

This place is noisy and unsafe. We were up all night with music and arguments right outside our door. No sleep at all. I tried to find security at 6 am when it was light and safe enough to go outside but security was gone. I complained to management at 9 am when the office opened and the thugs I complained about tried to break the windows of my vehicle. You can find video of that event on a Google search. Management sided with the thugs most likely out of fear for his own safety. We left immediately.

Very clean place. free WiFi, hot showers and very clean bathrooms.
Pretty crowded with nice people. Good for pets and big RVs.
I paid $484 pesos per night without a hook up. I think you pay $100 pesos more for hook ups.

Nice enough place, easy access, on the main road (highway 124). Close to services and amenities. We only stayed one night and we're told that there is only 1 rate, approx 26 USD, with power and septic.

Nice enough place with services. Very easy to access,; right off the main road. Close to all amenities. We arrived early evening, and they accommodating finding a spot but insisted we pay on the spot (they wouldn't wait until morning). Fair enough. There is a bank a few blocks down the street and we were able to get paso's without issue. When we asked for a spot with no hookups for a reduced rate (we were only staying the night), they told us all sites are same price, regardless of services. Other people report a different experience. We were tired and accepted the cost. without push back. All and all, decent place to overnight.

Nice, clean RV Park. Laundry mat available: $2.00 US for 1 load, dryers are $1.00 up depending on how long you need. Activities in the park from snowbirds: such as karaoke, beercan horse races, and grouerizonps going on off-road rides. Lots of restaurants around you can walk to. $22.00 US no electricity, $26.00 with. Our Verizon worked. Hot tub only on Wed.-Fri.-Mon. 3-7. nothing special. Does have pickleball court. Parking RV is odd due to big chunks of concrete. Check out the spot first. The manager is very flexible in that, get settled then come pay, points out places
to park. Also has water, but we use aqua purification, so we didn't need it. Many snowbirds.

Nice campsite very clean, unfortunately on weekends directly next door is an outdoor wedding venue, the music starts around 9pm and goes until 3am. Not just a little loud the volume is turned up to 11. We had both Saturday and Sunday weddings and were told it was the same the previous weekend. Earplugs and sleeping pills did not even work.

Like many RV parks in Sonora, this one has small spaces that are close together. Hookups worked fine, we had 30amp service. We used this park as a transitory stay for one night.

Nothing wrong with this RV park, other than it's not our first choice of styles. It was clean, and everything worked.

Close proximity to the beach is nice.

Just ok. Can't imagine when full of rvs. Ok stop for us as caravaning with friend who needed a room. Beach full of algae.

This is a awesome little RV hookup spot! It is right off the main road and all you have to do is walk across the street to the main beach. They had okay WIFI but had an awesome pool and great views would definitely recommend! The town itself is really small with small roads and parking spots. This is a great spot to leave your RV and walk around the town.

Large RV park with many amenities. Very clean. Gatekeeper/security guy was very friendly and got me checked in after office was closed. Paid 572 pesos for an electric site. Lots of snowbirds stay here.

Report Check-In

The place has nice facilities but I personally will not stay here again. my neighbor had $200 worth of gas siphoned out of her tank at night. The office did nothing when she asked for them to check the cameras. It is quite expensive and the people in the office were not very polite. Use pesos because the conversation to USD is bogus. I had the guy at the counter tell me that the laundry was $1.50 but it only worked with a token that you buy for $2. It's little things like this that make you feel like they are very money hungry. I also received incorrect information about being able to free hike at Canyon Nacapule from the front desk. overall unsatisfied.

Report Check-In

Actually a nice large RV park. clean restrooms and showers. Full hookup possible. Washing and drying machines. WiFi is good,if Park is empty. WiFi is very bad, when more than 10 people are here.
Soap and paper towels were not replenished during our 4 days here :-(
Pebble beach (very dirty) across the street. Why plastic, beer bottles, etc. are not cleaned up here is a mystery to me.
But now the little scam:
The prices are shown in US dollars. Dry Camp costs $22 per night ($26 full hookup).
At the moment 1 US Dollar=20,66 Pesos. The Petrol Stations rate here f.e. is 19 Pesos/1 US$!
But the receptionist calculates 1$ = 22 Pesos. He makes his own rating.
1 night dry camp costs real 455 pesos.
But they want 484 pesos.
That is 29 pesos (1,4 US$) too much!
If you pay with credit card, you must pay in pesos, not in US$.
If you pay in Cash USD, it's fine.
For us an absolute no go! Never had this (little scam) in the last 7 months in more than 60 Mexican Campgrounds.

Report Check-In

As described, very few campers in June 2022. We had a few issues with the water which kept coming and going in the showers. The power did the same. We were plugged into one of the few 15 amp household plugs that was easily overwhelmed by our modest power demands. We didn’t bring a 30 amp plug this trip and this was the first RV park where this was a problem.
The pool is tiny the street is busy and the music from the restaurants is loud.
It was an odd experience preventing us from relaxing prior to cross the border on our way home. Frustrating but probably not going to be your experience. $26 US per day raised our expectations.

Report Check-In

Thumping disco music at all hours - thumping to the point you can feel the beat! It finally died down at 5:30 am. The price one pays for being on the main drag in a professional Mexican party town. Bring ear plugs. Very clean bathrooms with cold showers. Lots of restaurants with thumping music nearby

Always a pleasure. The first and last place I stop going on and out of Mexico.

I stayed here for one month from Jan. 8th to Feb. 8th before heading further south. It is a very well managed park. Mostly full of Canadian and American snowbirds who’ve been going there for years. Price is $26.00USD per night $170.00USD per week or $570.00USD per month. José the manager and Joseph the owner both speak perfect English and are excellent to deal with. Laundry is $1.50USD per load for both the washers and dryers. Both work well and and they do have a clothesline to hang your clothes to dry if you choose. Beautiful beach across the street. Walking distance to everything. Restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Great place to start a journey into Mexico.

Spent 2 nights in a site with no hookups for $22 USD/night. Friendly host with very good English. Many amenities: bathrooms, showers, pool, pickleball court, palapas, fitness room (closed due to COVID), dog run, yards, Wi-Fi. Ley express grocery store 1km further into town on the same side of the street. Quiet in the area, many restaurants & shops closed. Beautiful rocky hills! Very nice stay.

Great place! Wifi great, current price USD$26 or MEX572 full hookups. Pool nice, hot tub only MWF. Bathrooms, coin laundry, fish cleaning room. No grass for dogs but dogs very welcome on leash. Lots of snowbirds here. Easy walk to Ley Supermarket and ATM. Lavanderia across Ley but expensive, just do coin laundry. Will definitely stay here again.

Personally I would avoid this place if possible
Extremely money oriented and not friendly
We checked it out and they were awful to us so we chose to not stay here
If you need hook ups go to the one on Guaymas
If you don’t need hook ups
The beach near Pilar is lovely and sweet community

We now call the workers at Totonaka Nazis
Though they aren’t exterminating people, they are the first unfriendly and unkind people we have encountered in Mexico

Location is really wonderful. Price for tent camping is same, $396 pesos per night. Wifi however is not good at the sites, there are many networks but most except for at the office they are really slow, could barely do anything with the slow connection.

$22/ dry camp, $26 hook ups.
Ghost town right now. Seems to be a lot of little dogs barking. Hummingbird came up to me as soon as I got out of the truck.
Bathroom looks nice. Neat the beach is across the street. Getting back into the swing of things. Never report on iOverlander till you stay the night. Yikes. Loud super loud disco across the street. Horrible.
we moved as far back into the park as possible still loud and pounding. So sad.
The bathrooms have been redone. Very nice and clean.
However the toilet seat was not secured. Beware

Very nice RV park located in San Carlos Sonora Mexico. Located just across the highway from a beautiful rocky beach. Power was 30 amp, Water pressure very low, filled fresh water tank and used pump to shower. Site was gravel/dirt with a concrete pad. Price was $21.00 per night for 7 days. Likely 70% Canadian campers, all were very friendly and helpful. Close to restaurants and shopping. I camped in this park with a 40’ fifthwheel.

Great campground! So nice to get a break from the road. Enjoyed the pool yesterday and going to the beach across the street today. Staff at the entrance is very very nice and speaks perfect english. 24$ a night with all services and excellent wifi. (28$ for 50 amp) great restaurant with view on the ocean right next door. They even deliver if you want to eat on the tables by the pool. Only down is water pressure but we kept our pump on and refill when needed. Easy fix for small problem.

Nice enough spot with all the amenities except water pressure at the sites. But we can tell we are getting close to the US. All prices increasing rapidly. 420 pesos per night.

Report Check-In

They are very accommodating on short notice. It's a busy park, with a significant return customer base. Walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The wifi and water pressure were both very weak, and I was told by a resident that the electric is spotty during the summer, but it was fine while I was there. Kind of expensive for what you get. There is a large vacant property located right next door and I'm surprised no one has scooped it up to create a competing park.

Booked for a week, stayed for winter! Great spot, friendly helpful staff. New bathrooms, vey well kept. Sporadic water pressure, keep rv tanks full and use pump when pressure low.

$24 USD per night, or $22 per night paid by the week. Okay place, 30 amp service. Provided internet was good enough. Sign at entry says no outside vendors or services, you must use the parks vendors for anything. You cannot wash you own RV, but can pay them to do it.

We were on our way to see the RV Park and our engine started stalling We parked about a block away and walked to the RV Park to see if they knew of a mechanic The man there said since we weren’t staying at the park he couldn’t help us He was really rude We had to walk to another business to find the name of a mechanic When we told the mechanic about the reception we received at the RV Park he said their reputation was one of rudeness and arrogance We got our RV fixed but decided not to stay there We wild camped and it was very lovely The RVs were jammed in there like sardines The pool was as small as a postage stamp A lot of permanent residents there who seemed to enjoy pickle ball We are just used to better and for us wild camping was definitely better

Been in Totonaka RV Park for 3 weeks now. Nice clean park. Clean bathrooms with showers. Showers are ok, but tend to be either too hot or a bit colder than I like. Wi-fi varies from great to slow, but I hear it's very good if you go to the "clubhouse". Pickleball court, pool & hot tub. Pool is a bit cold and hot tub is pretty good with temperatures being similar to most US or Canada hotels (a bit cooler than I prefer a hot tub to be). English speaking owner & manager. Friendly staff. Close to some restaurants. We have power, water & sewer hook up. Some cable channels (not great quality picture, but it is in English). Propane, bottled water & fish vendors come here. Coin laundromat on site. My first real RV park in Mexico and I'm pleased with it.

Great spot to stop for the night. Clean, well maintained, warm showers, very clean bathrooms, relatively good wifi. $14 USD or 245 pesos for a tent without power but with water. Across from a nice beach. No local food (mamacita's taqueria...) or mercado at a walking distance, just pricey restaurants, so go grocery shopping before you settle down otherwise your only option is the OK convenience store a hundred metres away. It's an RV park, don't expect nature and solitude.
