Not sure if it was a bad day for the place or not but the entire day and night the RV park smelled like crap. Literally. Smelled like sh*t! To make matters worse, the stray dogs on the street were barking ALL night non stop.
Shane bc it’s a cute little place and the guy who looks over it is super nice (Jose) but would not stay again only bc of the smell and dogs barking. Normally i wouldn’t complain but if I was woken up in the middle of the night by the smell AND the barking, then it’s pretty bad.

Nicely laid out campground in downtown Loreto. Basically a gravel secured parking lot but nice showers, laundry facilities, flush toilets and decent wifi. Charge was $10 US for no hookups. Only two blocks from the beach. 4G coverage on Verizon.

Report Check-In

Great spot! Will stay here next time through. Caretaker helped us right away picking a spot that fit our needs best. Location is perfect for a walk to harbor, restaurants, and town. Spots are close together but it’s in the heart of the city! No 30 amp or 50 amp power so expect only 110 power. I wish the website and phone would work for future reservations. Nothing sucks more than getting there and they are full or closed!

Report Check-In

Exactly as described. Pretty, gated community - super secure. We were greeted when we arrived and everything was well-explained by Yolanda herself. Rates are as described and posted for you to see. Nicest bathrooms I’ve seen in all of Baja.

Few blocks walk from Malecón and central plaza. Lots of markets and restaurants.

Only downside for us (we’ve been boondocking) was the noise of being in a city. No worse than anywhere probably, but to hear roosters and dogs all day (and a lot of the night) was hard. Garbage truck came by at 5:30am and woke me up through ear plugs.

Report Check-In

If comparing it to sites in the States it doesn’t complete. However, as far as sites go in Baja, it ranks in the top 10%. Note that although it says power, it’s only a 20a, 110v receptacles. Everything else is as described and there are 3 little old ladies across the street that will do your laundry. Believe it or not, I pulled a 44’ 5th wheel in here! Don’t try it! Just driving through town to get here pulling any RV is a rush you want forget, let alone the turn you have to make to enter the gate.

I love the place to the core. I’ve stay there every time I come through, since the first time I came to Baja.

A beautiful campsite that is larger than the others in town. Also nicely laid out with warm and clean and hot showers and clean toilets. There is also a covered '' room '' where you can sit together in the evening or in the morning. The owner is a very nice elderly lady with whom you can get along well she has a lot of patience for people who don't speak Spanish so well.
We paid for our Syncro T4 without electricity 180 Pesos or 4,97€.
In addition, we got a piece of paper where the prices were again on it it says 2018/2019 on it she said but they are still valid.
Just ask friendly :-)
It is very central and nice

Ein schöner Campingplatz der größer ist als die anderen in der Stadt. Zudem schön angelegt mit warmen und sauberen und warmen Duschen sowie sauberer Toilette. Es gibt auch ein überdachten '' Raum '' bei dem man zusammen sitzen kann abends oder morgens. Die Besitzerin ist eine sehr nette ältere Dame mit der man sich gut verstehen kann sie hat viel Geduld für Leute die nicht so gut Spanisch sprechen.
Wir bezahlten für unseren Syncro T4 ohne Strom 180 Pesos sprich 4,97€.
Dazu haben wir noch einen Zettel bekommen wo nochmal die Preise drauf standen es steht zwar 2018/2019 drauf sie meinte aber sie seien noch gültig.
Einfach freundlich fragen :-)
Ist aufjedenfall sehr zentral und nett!

Nice park with hot showers, eating area and dish washing sink. Play yard for kids. You are tightly packed in but grounds are nicely landscaped and long termers are nice. We negotiated $12/night for a truck camper with electric. On sites laundry for $60 pesos wash/dry or pay $80 pesos per load across the street at lavenderia. DEFINITELY BUY TAMALES FROM TAMALES LOS CERRITOS—$16pesos each and the best we’ve ever eaten!!

Very Friendly owners, clean hot showers, full hookup and a short walk to the Town square. Would stay here again. A bit hard to find but well worth it.

Nice place to stay for a couple nights. The showers were hot and good pressure. There are 2 bathrooms with a shower and toilet and 2 more showers that did not contain toilets. We decided to get electricity for the night. Would recommend this place.

Great little RV Park. I like the vibe here better than one of the others we checked out. Older expats that seem to all know each other and are very friendly. Yolanda who manages the place is awesome. Very accommodating. the showers are the cleanest, warmest and best functioning I've seen in Baja so far. bathrooms super clean.

we are truck camping and at first opted for the back by the campgrounds but quickly moved toward the front as it's farther from the street and felt a little more secluded and safer. they shut the gate at 10 pm.

Report Check-In

As described. Paid 90 pesos for dry camping. The showers are cleans and hot. Well located: 5 blocks from downtown. Noisy.

Report Check-In

They sure pack them in here. Especially at the back for the campervans. If not for the vacant spaces on both sides of me, I wouldn't be able to open my side doors. Same with the truck camper over there - the stairs to their side door extend into the vacant space beside them. And some of the bigger rigs in the serviced sites - they must have built the park around them.

Still, the showers are hot and clean. The toilet flushes - but just one per gender for a lot of sites. On site laundry and a lavandaria right across the street. Good wifi - when it works which so far seems to be most of the time. Short walk to the beach and everything else. Owners/managers very friendly and accommodating.

Inexpensive at 90 per night for 1 in an unserviced site.

Nice location. Rooster city at 5 am. Great group of expats.

Nice spot walking to beach and town center. If you like to hike one of the residents has created a guide for the area and sells it onsite. Great base for kayaking, snorkeling and hiking.

Great Showers, Community Area with Outlets.

WiFi is hit and miss but always works great earlier in the morning.

$18 full hookups. $300 for the month.

Sweet little campsite. We were cycle tourists and camped in the back. Great location and easy to walk to places. The best showers between here and Tijuana.

Bicycle tourists: ask for Pepe Cabañas at the office. He is a local bike mechanic that lives next door to the site as is an absolute bike whiz. He doesn’t advertise but he rebuilt a wheel for a surly and helped us with our Trek 920. Great day and much better than the stores in town.

200 MP for dry camping in our truck camper.
Clean and well taken care of. The showers and toilets were amazing.
About 15 minutes walk to downtown.
As per our arrival we had a couple issues getting there due to street repairs. This makes it harder to reach camp if you’re coming from downtown. If you’re coming from the north it’s quite easy.
Gets quiet at night.

Great little RV park. We were in the back area (nearest the bathrooms) and there were a few dogs barking late into the night and early morning. Spots closer to the front were quieter (though less shade).

Good for tents and hammocks.

Yolanda is super nice! My BF has stayed last year, so they remembered him, laundry is cheap for diy, or just down the street there is a nice little old lady who will do it for you! Haven’t tried yet, but may have them do our blankets since the washers here are not as large. Centrally located, mission and downtown are just blocks away. Showers and private bathrooms are also appreciated! Highly recommend this place! Super affordable compared to the hostel and hotels in the area! Great for camping too!

Great spot and cheap if you have a small rig and don't need hookups. $180 pesos for two in a VW Vanagon. Showers and bathrooms are great. It's entirely Canadians here, most in large motorhomes.

Not a fan! This place was crowded like campsites in the US. My husband referred to it as, "camping at Cosco's" because the spots were so tight. It was expensive. There was internet but we could never collect. The owner charged us $18 USD w/electric. Only perk: it's in town.

Report Check-In

Nice place to camp while scoping out the rest of the town

Report Check-In

We crashed there on our first night in Loreto. The small spots were large enough for our 25' RV. No shades, Wifi wasn't good and the owner came back to us after registration process and on a ruf manner to ask for 3 more dollars so we could use the rig AC. Bad behavior and vibes. We moved the next day to El Moro RV park where we were nicely welcomed for the same amenities, closer to center town and half the price. Lesson learnt.

Popular campground with nice hot showers, bathrooms and hookups. Wifi is fast enough, town is 10 minutes walk away. When it is full, space could be tight. We stayed here 3 nights and did not hear the loud music others mentioned. 320 m$/night with hookups. Nice common area. Great washer and dryers for m$20 each load.

Excellent camping area. Good security, Friendly staff and well kept facilities. Narrow camping sites. Only 15A power but full hook-ups available,/ and big rigs can maneuver into the back-up sites. Pleasant stay and great value for money. Internet connection is slow.

Report Check-In

Packed to the gills in mid Jan with giant snowbird rvs. Room in the tent area in back though if you're in a vehicle no larger than a van or SUV. The loud music a lot of folks mention is actually from a nearby gym. For us, it makes it much easier to tolerate knowing that. It doesn't go through the night and it didn't wake us up too early. Just be aware that it exists, bring ear plugs and smile knowing someone is having a blast working out to the pulsing music nearby!

PROS: Wonderful facilities, clean modern showers, hot water, and nice shaded common area with Wi-Fi. $150 pesos for two people and $20 pesos for each washer or dryer load. Close walking distance to beach and the rest of town. CONS: Sleeping was awful. The worst in Mexico so far. A house about a block away was BLASTING music all night long. You have to have brain damage to enjoy listening to the same never-ending repetitive beasts that just NEVER stop. That is my only explanation for why the roosters were also going off all night long. I'm taking about 2-3-4am roosters talking to each other non-stop. Which makes the dogs bark. Yeah, fun times. Will not be staying anther night.

Very clean facilities, nice place as far as an RV park goes. We were small enough (LR defender 110) to fit in a tent spot and were charged M$150. Good HOT showers. Wifi slow and would only connect nearer to the office but probably as too many people were trying to connect and blocked from the wall of RVs in the middle of the lot!Lovely palapa/shelter area with tables and chairs and barbecue area. M$20 each for washer and dryer, large machines. Quite a compact lot that fit a lot in but pleasant area and walking distance to town and the beach.

We didn't fit in a tent space but we were able to share a regular space for 150 pesos per vehicle (normally 240 pesos for a spot for 1 vehicle). It was quiet where we were sleeping, but we weren't right next to the property fence where the tent spaces are. Onsite laundry is 20 pesos per load for washer and 20 pesos for dryer.
