Free provincial rec site. The gravel road in is filled with potholes and the turnoff for Burnt Beach is really narrow, a bit steep. No one else there in the winter, but hunters may be in the area. Locals say that there are a ton of free rec sites by lakes nearby, so the area doesn't get too filled up in the summer. Pit toilet available. Each site has picnic tables and fire pit. Quaint little private bay.

NOT a friendly man, matter of fact when we first arrived he refused to answer the door when we knocked. We walked around the building, filled out water bottles from the big water container (that leaks bad). We could hear noises inside the living area so we knocked again. He finally came to the door, told us we could pitch our tent in a wind protected area, advised us that "this wasn't a hotel" and that there are no bathrooms. This was not a quiet place and big trucks came and went, lots of traffic noise. It was an "okay" place and it was out of the wind, which was needed.

Popular place with "snowbirds" from northern USA and Canada but there's a welcome sign for overnighters. Prices per site with 1-2 persons are $40 with full hook-ups, $28 without. $5 for extra person. Fire rings only in tent/dry camp area. Next to the six hot tubs there is a community hall with daily evening activities, which I was not aware of when I chose a site nearby until they started the "Karaoke night" (quiet after 11 p.m.). In the hot tubs/pool area there are three individual bathrooms, each with toilet and hot shower. After using the hot tub you are supposed to pull the plug, let it drain, hose it down, and out the plug backin so it fills up cor ghe ndxt user. The facilities are a bit dated but clean. WiFi did not work; it apparently gets "flooded" with heavy rain.

Stayed here when we found the gate closed at the end of the day. Not an ideal spot but we did not free like driving back the bumpy road to the park. Early in the morning already cars passed to go to the park, maybe rangers. However they did not bother us staying here next to the road. On the positive side: at 8.20 we were the first to enter the park and start the hike to the glacier.

Nice place to camp for one night in our rooftop tent. We turned into the Mt. Shasta Spring Water company parking lot and took a quick left onto the road that takes you out to a flat private area a few hundred metres from the company's site (may be on the company's property but it was late on a Friday and empty when we arrived). It was a bit loud by train tracks and weigh station when sleeping.

Nice campground with fast Wifi on every campsite. Two have their own ablution but the main one is big and clean. Each site has shadow, electricity, sink and a braai.
The owner (lady) speaks German.
They have some animals like camel, cow and so on. Also a restaurant is on site.

All of the latest comments are true and accurate.
Although it’s a quite expensive place you get value for the money! The staff is super friendly (only speak spanish) and we kept on extending our stay day by day.
From the 6th night on (but not before!) you get a discount of 10% on the price = 315 Pesos per car per night

Gorgeous little campground on the waters edge, electricity and dump facilities along with bathrooms and kitchen. In the centre of Auckland’s most popular eating and drinking spot and perfect for beach walks and getting public transport and taxis/Uber.

Stayed here one night before going to Perito Moreno. Very friendly staff that showed us where to park and the bathrooms (no hot water for the shower though - just cold). Was 250 per person in Argentina pesos. We had a fun evening with the goats, chickens, horses that roam the property and had a cup of tea in the restaurant that night with beautiful views of the sunset over the mountains. Staff didn't speak english and we had to communicate in our poor to okay spanish.

This place has a great view to the valley, perfect spot to meet other overlanders. The hike to Barichara by the mountain is easy and with great views. Dog friendly, very nice facilities, and the owners rock, they know what this game is all about. Perfect weather too. Don’t miss this place.

Abby and Carmen have a great space for camping. Clean baths. Full equiped kitchen. 5 USD ppn. In the camping lot they have a house with rooms for rent. I stayed 12 days. It was one of the best campings I've been in Ecuador

quite desert camping with nice views of the sunset. the last campers neglected to pick up their garbage, so please don't litter in these pristine areas. your phone probably won't work here so keep that in mind also

Stopped here after driving all day and it became dark.
We did not stay.
Loud. Busy. The entire parking area is surrounded by either homes, mechanics, or hotels. Completely exposed.
They did have lovely, clean bathrooms though!

National bank with cashpoint which takes MasterCard. Only cashpoint in town which would take our card. Easy to park in front.
We enquired inside if we could get dollars but they said they were out and directed us to NSB. Presumably they can sometimes provide USD.

Zambia / Malawi border. UK and FR nationals travelling from Zambia to Malawi. Visa fee is 75 USD, no local currency accepted. If travelling with vehicle a road access fee is 20 USD. No customs so Zambia could not stamp our carnet, this did not bother the Malawi side who stamped it in. Road from this border to Karonga is tarred for 100km.

We crossed at the Chisenga border further south and had to sort our paperwork here. Probably not possible without carnet. Roads Zambia side very bad both borders.

Obviously not the most beautiful place to stay for the night but it works. A little bit of noise but it didn’t bother us. They didn’t have any signs saying no overnight parking so we figured we were fine. We didn’t actually ask if it was permitted though. Slept just fine.

We tried to cross the border with a Chilenian Notarized Poder and it failed miserably. They wanted to a Poder from the country of origin in our case Canada. After 4 hours and the help of a friend we were finally able to cross the border with a freshly made Canadian Poder. Just be aware, that this problem might occure.

was received by friendly owners. could pick any spot for camping under big palmleave roofs. WiFi worked,but slow.
toilet clean, didn't try shower, looked old, but clean.
bit of highway 1 noise during night, but just use earplugs.
paid 100 peso.
friendly young dog on property.
was only one staying, but the town doesn't seem popular in general, nothing much except for overnighting on your way along Baja.

Do not waste your time with this resort, not a overlander spot by a long shot, not big rig friendly, ok if you have screaming kids and are part of the locals otherwise you will feel out of place, had a burger and it was dreadful, feel ripped off due to the high price (The highest so far) and having to divert so far off the route for a misleading previous report, ablutions dirty and smelly, no hot water for showers, was told a phase went down....do not waste your time.....seriously
