Signs say 1 hour only for customer parking, we have parked here a few times for a whole day and never had a ticket. Also camped here on Canada day with no issues so I’d say it’s pretty chill, super close to the city aswell and it’s free 🤙🤙 yewwww

We stayed here in the off season so were on our own for 3 days. Great views and top camp spot. The donkey was lit morning and night but the showers could do with better shower heads. Cost was R200 per day for two on a powered site so has gone up and is a bit expensive for what you get. We did have a -10c morning which was a shock and it even caused a couple of water pipes to burst. One evening the owner came out and let off about 20 shots from his gun which was a bit disconcerting. Over all we loved our three days there though!👍

When heading towards Mashhad (for picking up the Visa) / Turkmenistan I was passing by Bajnour. As it was on my way, I dropped by at Mohsen, who has contacted me more than half a year ago when I was still preparing my trip. Since then he helped me via PM or posts in his FB group to get things sorted out here in Iran.
Actually I just wanted to stay in Bajnour just for one night, but thanks to his friends I got some works done on my Honda Africa Twin and stayed two: mounting my GPS system, my handle bar raisers, my bottle holder as well as some maintenance works like brake adjustments, blowing out my water cooler as well as cleaning some oil pipes next to other things.
As it was a super hot day I bought some drinks for the guys of the workshop. As we had a lot of fun we also took a lot of pics.
After three hours and two to three people constantly working on the bike they refused to accept any money. None of them. Including Mohsen.
(For the sake of completeness - I went to a cake shop and bought a big box of local cakes for all the guys)
Having said all this, judge for yourself what kind of guys Mohsen and his friends are and what high prices in Iran say about the person who asked for the works...

Not a very sexy choice, but there was nothing much on the road before that.
There is a guesthouse with banya and a small tire repair shop.
Petrol station just next it.

I almost hate to add a report on Mill’s Canyon as I hope it remains a well guarded secret. This place is special! Secluded, quiet, and pristine. Fortunately, it is a bumpy last few miles down to the lower campground, so maybe we can all keep this one to ourselves a little longer..

Kind of confusing place. Gate says it's a hot l but when you enter there is a little bar to the right called "Sand Bar". Not really nice guy at the bar wanted 100 pesos so I can establish my tent... Didn't stay since he was really not that friendly. But besides the beach is awesome... Maybe works for someone else. Access via muddy path. Came by motorbike. 4x4 can enter - bigger rigs probably no...

Says Hostel... but it's more like a cheap camping inside walls... they have tents but you can also use your own. 50peso... Don't expect any luxery here... Rastaman owns the place. If you are into smoking dope all day - this is probably your place. Could enter with my motorbike... I liked it...

Hermoso lugar para descansar a mitad de trayecto Cusco- Nazca... sobre todo del caos de la ciudad. Excelente para motoviajeros!! Rodeado de árboles frutales y un hermoso cesped... la familia del camping es maravillosa, te hacen sentir parte de ella, muy atentos y amables. La comida casera es muuuuuuuy rica!! super recomendable!

really enjoyed these ruins. as for me there are really different from Tikal and chitchen itza; there is less incredible architecture but there is definitely more amazing Stella and sculptures ; especially the hieroglyphics stairs. worth the stop. and as a bonus you get to see free macaws (which were freed by the mascaw rescue center that we visited too ; nice visit too). as for the tunnels we did not feel to pay extra for this. the ruins are located in a nice jungle too

Overlanders are very welcome, Renato and Cecile are very welcoming and lovely hosts.
Perfect stop over to explore the Chaco, to meet the nice inhabitants of Rosaleda and their stories. Enjoy Renato's good food. On hot days, the swimming pool and the covered veranda invite you to linger and have a break from the journey.

Nice place. You can barely hear the cars from the street. View is pretty cool.
There's two dirt roads only a few meters apart. Take the second one coming from south. It takes you further away from the hwy and has better views.
The road is kinda grown over, so oly for small vehicles.
There's a rest area with pit toilets at the hwy only 500 m away.

Gas station, restaurant and parking lot
Great place to rest and spend the night traveling with motorhome. There is a shaded parking lot behind the convenience store, with good security and no road noise. Great restaurant, snack bar, clean toilets and Wi-Fi. Highly recommend.

Lovely backpackers with group and family rooms. R480 for the family room, R160 if you want to share. Just across the road from a farm stall with curios. Perfect spot to stop over or spend a few days. Will have a camp area in future.

We enjoyed our stay there. The camp has been overtaken by a Womens Cooperative. We paid 1000 KSH. They still use pitlatrines but built a small showerhouse with black tanks on the roof, so the water was perfect. They fill the tanks by hand! We had 3G with Safaricard. One of the women showed us the huts they built, really very nice and she was so proud that they even have electricitiy in the huts. Right next to Acacia soon opens a new Lodge, they are not very happy about that.

This is a fantastic, quiet, mystical and underused campground. Hardly anybody knows it exists and although this is fine for some of us who have been coming here for more than 35 years, the word must get out so that it continues to welcome guests. The sites are rustic but very accessible. The favourite sites are # 1 thru # 14 as these are right on Lake Huron, the Mississagi Strait. They are unserviced with the exception of 15 amp service for # 8, 9 and 10. There a few sites that have their own 15 amp service and water hookups but no sewer hookups or dumping station on site. This is an "off the grid" campground with very limited cell service, but that's it beauty. The campground is run on a seasonal basis by "Maddie" and her family and friends. Dogs allowed on leash. Boat launching is available. Water is potable. Shower and washroom on site.. Flat, clean sites will accommodate any style of camping from tents to 40 ft motorhomes. The prices are $30 per night and $40 for electrical. This place is quiet, clean and guaranteed to make you want to return time after time, Fishing is really good and I've caught Lake Trout right from the shore. The Lighthouse is fully operational guiding boaters 24 / 7 all year long. There is a common room in the Fog Horn building that makes the rare rainy day very enjoyable. I've been here twice already this year and may go a third time if I can swing it. Enjoy!

Very simple familiy owned homestay (there is a blue sign on the main road). Max. 2-3 cars fit in, we could stay in our van. As everywhere in this region the toilet is in the backyard, also shower super simple (but nice experience). People speak a little english. They also offer you food if you want to.
