Laguna Ojo de Liebre Campground Guerrero Negro, BCS, Mexico
76 days ago

"Beautiful views and whales!"

Another name for this place is Casa Mexican de la Ballena Gris (Mexican House of the Gray Whale). There is a restaurant, campground, and a dock for gray whale tours, as well as a "museum" area with interpretive signs. It's 15 miles off the... Read more

AquaMarina RV Park La Paz, BCS, Mexico
79 days ago

"Great in town location and views of the Sea of Cortez"

I tried to call this park to make reservations but none of the phone numbers worked. Apparently it was closed for a while but is now open. It's a gated park down a dirt road one mile from the center of town. The sites are full hookup and you get a... Read more

"Well cared for "urban" park just outside of town"

We were pleasantly surprised by this park. I had made reservations by phone over a month in advance which they lost. So I was expecting problems. But they honored our reservation and we grew to appreciate their staff over the time we were there.... Read more

Playa Tecolote La Paz, BCS, Mexico
96 days ago

"Beautiful beach and views"

This is a large beach with restaurants in the middle. To the west are some dunes with vegetation and to the east (where most people camp) is an open wide beach. We initially planned to park on the west side. There is another little restaurant on... Read more

Misiones RV Park Ciudad Constitucion, BCS, Mexico
98 days ago

"Surprisingly nice in a very high traffic town"

This was a full hookup park (15-amp) at the northernmost end of town right off Peninsular Highway 1 but set back from the road and through a gate. It's a big town, so the fact that the park if just outside of town is good as it was a pretty quiet... Read more

Loreto Shores RV Resort Loreto, BCS, Mexico
117 days ago

"Typical "urban" park by the ocean with nice amenities"

Daily rate above reflects a one night discounted weekly rate. This is a full hookup park and the electrical works! After dry camping for a while we were happy to have full hookup. The park has toilets and showers that we didn't use and a laundry... Read more

Playa Santispac Bahia Concepcion, BCS, Mexico
118 days ago

"Camping on a gorgeous cove "

This beach is one of several on the Bahia Concepción, a beautiful bay on the Sea of Cortez. It (and I believe the others) is an ejido, owned and operated by a community. In the case of Playa Santispac, there are about 140 people that own... Read more

Campo Los Petates San Ignacio, BCS, Mexico
122 days ago

"A simple little oasis by a lagoon with lots of trees"

There are three RV parks very near to town, the one closest to town was a really rundown lot, the second on the other side of the lagoon kind of similar to this one but plainer and this one on the lagoon with date palms and lots of cute little... Read more

Malarrimo RV Park Guerrero Negro, BCS, Mexico
126 days ago

"Basic full hookup in center of town"

We'd read about this park and a few others in the area and decided that this would be the most convenient for us. It is centrally located in the town, offers full hookup (mostly), and WiFi. They accept payment for only one night at a time, but... Read more
