This is more of a parking lot at the owner's home, but if you can get in the (slightly) tight entrance, you have great walking access to central Guanajuato, as well as a beautiful view. To access this place, make sure that you stay on the access road that goes around the city. Do NOT let your GPS route you through the middle of the city (it is a nightmare).
Also, don't confuse this place with the junk yard up the street! Some spaces have electricity and running water. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained.
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
great spot! close to the city centre - an easy 20ish minute walk down the hill and then through the tunnel, or about 40-50 pesos by Uber/cab. we would usually walk in, and then Uber back. if you have difficulty walking on uneven cobblestones, you might want to take a lift both ways.
we were the only RV there, but there were locals coming and going using it as a parking lot. the toilets were clean. as others have said, there was an almost comical number of dogs barking - sound really echoes around these hills! we sleep with the fan on at night though, so it didn't bother us in the slightest.
there didn't seem to be anyone working there or managing the place during our 2 nights there - maybe the owners were away since it's low season? we felt a bit weird just plopping ourselves down in the lot, but nobody told us to leave!Report Check-In
OK for a night but that is about it. I doubt any of the mentioned amenities work (e.g. electric). The bathrooms were dirty and stunk. Fairly close to city center when taking a cab back, otherwise it is a tough climb back up.
Noise isn't too bad, the dogs are far away and are like white noise when falling asleep.Report Check-In
Tres belle vue, douches chaudes et propres, difficile d'acces avec gros vehicule. 250 pesosReport Check-In
Good to spend a night or two, no shade, clean facilities (no TP) hot showers. Google sent us the narrow road uphill, nerve-wrecking! Take the road to let you access from the north, downhill.Report Check-In
Great campground! Bathrooms are clean with very hot showers, sinks and toilets. We were able to fill our water tanks (no drinkable though). Owner is very nice. great view on the colorful city. 15 mins walk from historic center (through the tunnel). we paid 250$Mex.Report Check-In
We stayed for two nights. It was the perfect spot for us to explore the town. We paid 250 Pesos/night. I would assume that you can get a better deal if you stay for a longer period. We would definitely recommend to enter the road from the north, then it’s downhill and definitely easier to reach.Report Check-In
Stayed 6 nights here. It’s so perfect as it is very close to the center (take the left long tunnel for a short cut. Google maps and maps.me won’t tell you to take it) and very safe. We came back every night by foot without any problems. Just don’t forget to tell Antonio or his wife around what time you will come back otherwise you will be stuck outside
We paid 225 pesos each night.
Very good 4G telcel.

Stayed here for two nights in Guanajuato and as others have said it’s more of a parking lot than a campground. We were in a Jeep and took the one ways down - then up the hill to the gate. I definitely recommend going “the wrong way” as others mention if you’re in anything larger than a midsize pickup.
Probably the loudest dog noise we’ve experienced outside of Baja. But the town is awesome. Highly recommend hiring a taxi for an hour or so to see the city and it’s tunnels. We were given the number of a really nice and knowledgeable driver. The tour lasted about 60-80 min and gave us a great intro to the city.Report Check-In
3 nights in sprinter high roof @225 per night. Access is easy following route described in other comments. Didn't inquire about hot water, but none during my stay. Bring TP.Report Check-In
Antonio the owner is very nice. He quoted us 240 pesos per night for a van and two people. He gave us a small discount because we stayed 7 days (1500 pesos) still more than previous entries. Look close to the rock walls and you will find outlets and dump drains near the water spigots. Great location to walk into the city while we took Spanish lessons for the week :) would come back again and highly recommend.Report Check-In
As described by others. Great views. We (2 persons in a high rooftop car) paid 225 Pesos for one night, so either they have increased priced or we should have haggled. Bring your own toilet paper!Report Check-In
220p/night for a van. Barking dogs all evening but night was quiet. No sign of owners. Paid a young couple who showed up late last night knocking on my door. Told them I was staying just the one night and leaving before 8. They told me someone would be here. Now 8.30 and I’ve already been waiting 30 mins for someone to unlock the gate..Report Check-In
Small but nice camping side. The view over Guanajuato is amazing. The toilet and shower were hot and clean. Friendly owner.Report Check-In
We spent three nights in the campsite, the owners are very nice. They weren't there when we arrived, we came back to see and the neighbor told us to settle in because the owner was not there. The view is beautiful. There is a non-potable water dump, shower and toilet. We paid 570 pesos for our stay. To go to the campsite there is a big climbReport Check-In
Was a little worried how/if to get here based on some of the comments here. was not an issue though in our Ford Transit High Roof Extended. Oneway road from the bottom is steep but just take your time. Don't visit Guanajato if you mind dogs barking and rockets banging all night... ;-)Report Check-In
Very nice place and close to the city we highly recommended 190 pesos Antonio and Lupita were really nice. We were able to fill our water tank. Shower and hook our van to the electric outlet 20 amp. We meet some travelers from Germany and US. We had a great time.Report Check-In
As described, we stayed 2 nights in our Promaster van. The road is steep with low power lines at just under 10’ we had no issues with height. We pulled past the entry and backed in as it would have been a tight turn, and spun just a little trying to get out. The dogs barking would be the only complaint. We had water, electric, and a dump; however, we did not use the electric. It was rainy and the outlet was in the ground and appeared to be a standard interior outlet. $190 a nightReport Check-In
Still cold showers. We paid 190 Pesos per night (2 people) with a Sprinter.Report Check-In
Steep and narrow road with some eletric cable hanging into the street. We made it with our Iveco 4x4, 6.20m long, 3.55m high. Place is clean but at the moment packed with parked cars. Cold showers, bathrooms were clean. 299 pesos per night per RV. Beautiful few.Report Check-In
we have been here 4 nights. it's a nice place 10 minutes walk from the center (50pesos back with a cab) we paid 190pesos per night including a cold shower, water and electricity.Report Check-In
We’re 12 foot high and we made it! We parked at the top of the road (where it becomes one way) walked down, asked about camping and the owner helped stop traffic for us so we could drive down the one way road! Totally worth it! Fantastic view of Guanajuato, (see our picture in the blue hour) and about 30 min walk into town. We stayed two nights and loved it!Report Check-In
As described, better suited for RVs but we made it work for our tent as it’s the only option in town. Zero shade so be prepared for hot days. Bathrooms were average, no hot water but that wasn’t really an issue. As for tranquility... not so much! Dogs are at it all night, by 4am the roosters get going,then there is the traffic (the campsite was mostly used a a car park with some early departures) we wore earplugs to get through the night. Price at time of visit was $90 per person, we stayed 2 nights. The road up there is steep and narrow, I bet it’s an ice rink in the rain! Walk to town is about 20’ coming back... uphill maybe a bit more. A few tiny tiendas around enough for beer, snacks and water.Report Check-In

I came here with recommendations from friends and travelers. Please note that the following review is most likely different from past reviews due to covid. The owners were very nice and they live on site. There were quite a few vehicles that use this place for parking. It is a great place to be a little away from the centro but still a nice walk to it through the cobbled streets.
The Not-do-Great. They did not have any hot water I’m guessing they decided to not fill the tank due to not many travelers. They also wanted to charge me (one camper) 180ppn
At the end they gave it to me for 150pp ( my friends stayed for 120 about a year ago and had hot water. For what you get it was a bit pricey. The space had great views and you didn’t have to drive through the tunnels. Big rig friendly but follow past directions!
Drove here the ‘tricky’ way with a Class B 6’ high and 20’ long, was ok. Place as described earlier. Beautiful view !Report Check-In
Description above is accurate, we also took the advice of entering via Panorámica and driving the 100m backwards down the one way street to enter. We had walkie-talkie to communicate. We are 12’ high x 8’ wide x 27’ long truck. Paid 200p p/night for family of 4. Walk down the hill & through the tunnel to Centro. Came for just a day, fell in love with city & stayed 4 nights. Felt very safe. Bathrooms were clean. owner is friendly. Drop yourself a What’s App location pin if you want a taxi back. Taxis are 50p within the city. Definitely take a taxi to the Mummy Museum. Enjoy!Report Check-In
What a great spot for small rigs! Getting here is a bit tricky, it's a long windy road and it's one way street into the campground. We ended up going the wrong way on the 1 way and stopping a few cars in traffic (they didn't love that) but it was the only way we would make it into the gate's entrance. If you're coming here, stick to the left rather than going around the block as google will tell you to do. The view is incredible and 100% worth it! You also can't beat the location. It's just a quick 10 minute walk into the city and you can explore all of beautiful Guanajuato. You will definitely hear dogs barking and lots of city noise, but it didn't keep us up at night. I would not come here with any rig over 28/30 ft. but it worked great for us. Electricity wasn't great, but the showers were nice with hot water and toilets on site. There is water and dumps at each "site".Report Check-In
There were 3 of us in our party with class c RVs (motorhomes). We are the biggest and have a Lazy Daze that is just under 27 feet long and we pull a 2 door Jeep Wrangler. We followed the advice of others and took the "Panoramic" route, however we definitely had to disconnect prior to getting here due to the tight turns and possiblity of needing to back up. There is a supermarket about 10 minutes away with a decent size parking lot where we did this. That plaza also has a laundry service which was nice. When going through the tunnels on the way into the city if you're in a tall vehicle be sure to stay to the middle and use both lanes like the local buses do. We sent one of the towed vehicles to the front to block the short section of one way traffic just before the entrance, as we could not fit coming from the other direction. This place is definitely more van / truck camper friendly as it is really a small parking area for locals. It was tight not only getting here, but getting into a spot as well. It is a nice walk down into the beautiful city and a uphill walk back.. after a little too much tequila we opted to Uber back from downtown for about $40 pesos.. so very cheap. We stayed 6 nights and paid $200 a night, it was more for us as we had 2 in our RV and had to pay to park the Jeep as well.. overall still very cheap. The bathrooms were clean and had great hot water! The views are amazing as well. Now for the bad part, other than getting here that is. ALL OF THE SPACES SHARE ONE 20 AMP BREAKER FOR ELECTRICITY. For us it was not a big deal as we the weather was nice and we all 3 have solar systems with inverters. While we were here there were our group of 3 RVs with our 2 towed vehicles, plus one small bus conversion, and a camper van. So had the weather been hot it would of been an issue trying for more than one of us to run an air conditioner. Luckily the breaker is in the little closet between the bathrooms should two of you try to make coffee at the same time or etc. As others noted the dogs are loud and bark all night long. However that is the entire city, it is not the dogs at the RV park. They are all over the city and the hills easily carry the sounds across. For us it wasn't a big deal as we just opened a window at the other end of the RV and ran a fan to drown out the dogs. I'm just mentioning it so you are aware. Overall this place was cheap, had great showers, an amazing view, and the locals are very friendly. However the one electrical breaker may be an issue for some, especially if the weather is hot. It's also a little stressful to get to due to the how the city is set up, not that's the RV parks fault. Just something to keep in mind. I doubt if anything much larger than us would of made it into the park. Excellent cell phone signal and speeds (T-mobile aka TELCEL here) I hope this helps!Report Check-In
Great stay. Beautiful view of city. Love a hot shower!Report Check-In
Awesome spot! Very dusty but ok. Like written before, take the detour to come in, entrance is tight. Worth every penny for the hot showers and the people there are super nice. Took spanish lessons (escuela falcon, we could bring our puppy with us!) and enjoyed afternoon walks in the city. Lots of fun things to do day and night. Be sure to go out at night at least once, it’s a whole different city! We felt super safe, just don’t walk the tiny streets in the middle of the night and you’ll be good!Report Check-In
Came through Guanajuato by chance and ended up staying 2 weeks here!!! Lovely owners. Clean hot showers and toilets. Amazing view. Grey water drain, power and water on site. It’s a bit of a parking lot for people who live near by but if you wait for them to leave during the day you can grab a nice spot. Downtown is super cool and about a 20 minute walk from the campsite. Amazing little city with lots of do and great Spanish schools. Took a week of lessons to try and up our Spanish speaking game.Report Check-In
I was charged 120 p for a single person with car. Although i had asked about what others were paying-90 per person he said that is only for 2 or more people. The location is great for overlanding. Dogs do not stop barking!! Bathrooms are clean and showers are hot! Stayed 3 nights. Bring ear plugsReport Check-In
We stayed one night. Price still 90 Pesos per Person. Perfect stay for this City. Easy way to come here with OSM maps on the bypass road...With big rigs you really should not do the city center with the (cool) tunnel system and the steep road leading from there up here. Nice hosts, great view and for a city super quiet night.Report Check-In
Pretty much as described by fellow iOverlanders. We paid M180 for the night (my wife and I). This is essentially a large, flat backyard with sweeping views of the Guanajuato hills. Clean showers with hot water. They close the gates after 2200 or so but Lupe will be more than happy to give you a key if you’re out late.
Overall fantastic spot, would stay again.Report Check-In

Small Carpark on the side of the hill with good hot showers, level places to park, a nice view and good walking access to town. Downsides are not much space or shade, and dogs and roosters are quite loud.
We didn’t have issues with the noise inside our vehicle which blocks a lot of sound, but our friend in a tent was kept up.
We didn’t have any trouble finding it coming via gps route with our small rig. Collectivo mini busses come up the same way.
Owner is friendly and accomodating.
We paid $250/night for 3 people (vehicle plus tent)Report Check-In
Just a described below.
Clean bathrooms, hot showers, nice view. Antonio is an absolute gent.
Dogs & roosters can be heard but nothing that requires ear plugs to sleep - at least it did not bother us.
Great place to stay to explore town. We stayed 3 nights.
Very hard to find and hard to access! Don't even try if you don't speak pretty good Spanish. Nothing larger than a camper can get in here. Clean bathrooms. Owner is friendly, Antonio. 180 pesos. Walk to town. Walk back is steep. No shade. Noisiest dogs in Mexico, bring earplugs.Report Check-In
The drive up is not for the faint of heart. if approaching from the west
keep on 110 do not turn right into the tunnel! keep left around the city on Panoramica rd and you will be OK.
Nice photogenic spot, the owner is great and friendly. The bathrooms clean with hot water. People leave in and out through the day as it's mostly a commuter parking lot since parking in the center is horrendous. The entrance gate is closed but the owner is there, so don't be deterred if you arrive and the gate is closed. There is power and non potable water available. The drive in coming from the panoramica involves some steep one way streets but is totally fine with an extra long sprinter or full size truck. Navigating the city by bus or any vehicle is challenging since many of the roads are under ground. The neighborhood that this place is located is known by "Barrio Neuvo". We spent two weeks doing a language courses at "Adelita language school" and for the price and the quality of instruction was totally worth it.Report Check-In
We have a Truck Camper with the following size: 6.1m length, 2.95m height and 2.5m width. Coming in through town was really tough, many narrow small roads, many tunnels and power cables hanging low. The place is perfect, very close to the center and has all the amenities. 170 pesos per night.Report Check-In
As being said, really nice spot with an awesome view over the city.
Street might be to narrow and steep for many vehicles though.
Great stop for the night. Coming from downtown, access was a bit steep for our westy but doable.
Nice view from there, with clean bathroom and hot showers. We paid 170pesos
We drove to this RV Park. We had to climb very steep and narrow roads. This was almost too much for our motorhome. Unfortunately, nobody was there so we went to the Bugamvill RV Park.Report Check-In
Awesome spot tucked in the hills of Guanajuato. Clean bathrooms and showers. This place is really tight to get up to - narrow cobblestone roads up steep hills. Be cautious if you have a larger vehicle and ID even suggest walking up before to ensure there is space. The lot us used for parking during the day so can fill up easily. Would highly recommend! Easy walking downtown.Report Check-In
Tight, windy roads on the way in would be tough for bigger rigs, but our 4Runner with a rooftop tent fit easily. Place was simple, with a very beautiful view and mostly quiet at night.

The place is good for 1 or 2 nights. Nice view. But it is not a RV Park, it is a parking lot with many mexican cars. If you have bad luck the parking lot is full. The restrooms are not so clean. The place is a bit noisy, loud music and barking dogs.
The way to the town is short. You have to go through a tunnel. The town is beautiful!!!

reading all the prior comments we expected a tight squeeze for our 170 sprinter van but it's not bad at all. the road isn't that steep and the gate is very wide. there are a few lowish wires but we have a high roof 4x4 van with a rack and we we're well clear. definitely just take the panoramic and then come down the one way road (bear left at the top if the hill) it's just 150 meters down.
place is very clean, showers are hot (all the time) nude view of the colorful city. certainly some dogs barking but nothing that required ear plugs. no hugs of any kind for the 1st time in a while.
we negotiated from $200/night to $160/night for 3 nights.

As described, walking distante to center. We followed the panoramica road. Not such a great view in my opinion. You have to ask in advance to get hot waterReport Check-In
Great place in Guanajuato!!! Wonderful people! This is a parking lot with many flat spaces. People do come and go a bit because it is also rented to locals for long term car storage. It's a safe spot. Nice hot showers (the men's shower had reversed caliente and frío). Clean restrooms, toilet seats!!!, Beautiful view, and hookups worked well. In a gmc savana we had no issues thru the city as directed by gps, anything bigger, take the Panorámica. The canyon is like a guitar filled with dogs. They do quiet down late in the evening, but earplugs might be handy.
$150MXP/night. Can't wait to go back!Report Check-In
What an amazing city! For us it was great fun to drive through the small alleys and tunnels but don't even think about doing so in a US style big rig. And take up time: It's very likely that you get lost somewhere in this labyrinth and find yourself without a GPS signal. And the campground? Yes, it doubles as a parking lot (or should I better say the parking lot doubles as a RV park) but there is electricity and water on site and hot showers on demand. We liked it because it feels like living with the locals and the owners are very welcoming.Report Check-In
Mostly as described - up a very steep hill, with difficult access. We are a Toyota Tacoma with pop up camper and it was tight! Mostly dirt parking lot, which filled with knee deep water/mud with a heavy rain storm by evening and cleared by morning. Thankfully the heavy thunderstorm and rain saved us from the chorus of barking dogs and EDM discoteca music playing over the canyon. Electricity, water, clean flushing toilets and luke warm showers. 20 minute walk to town. $150 pesos.Report Check-In
The owners are nice and the bathrooms are clean and with hot showers but it's a parking lot. As for the view, it's OK but I wouldn't call it beautiful. For people sleeping in their vehicles it seems to be an OK place to stay. For people sleeping in tents (like us), it's not so great. We were there on a Saturday night and there were cars coming and going until about midnight. They allowed us to put our tent on the small terrace so we didn't have to sleep in the parking lot. It was a cheap (75 pesos/person) place to stay in an expensive city.Report Check-In
Best place we've stayed. Great owners, hot showers, beautiful view, and short walk into central Guanajuato. MXN 150$/night. Small fruit stand down the road with great produce too.

Pretty awesome camp actually.

Quick walk into town through the tunnel and of course, a killer view of Guanajuato.Report Check-In
I navigated here okay with a minivan via GPS thru town. Cant imagine bringing something much bigger, although there is a truck/camper here now. Watch out for one-way streets. Last few hundred meters are 40° incline - keep in mind for driving and walking. Parked at top of hill where dude wanted 10p/hr. Period. Morrill is down hill a bit abd indeed a parking lot for family, nearby residents. Great view to be sure. One outlet working, in women's bathroom.Report Check-In
As stated by other iOverlanders, nice place within walking distance to center of Guanajuato. Hot showers, clean bathrooms, no wifi, excellent LTE reception. Access via Panoramico rd for larger rigs.

Secure with great access to the city. Paid 150 for 2 ppl and a small rig. Hot showers and clean facilities. We were routed through the tunnels to get there and had a wild time between trying to navigate and drive while looking up in awe. Cool city. Lots of barking dogs at night.

We didn't love it. Great views, walking to town but they wouldn't turn on the hot water for showers and wanted to charge extra for our fig. The first night the locals who park there were milling about and coming and going all night. Second night was better. Ironically enough, the barking dogs weren't a bother at all! 130/night( with refusing to pay more for Aspen)Report Check-In
Very nice and safe campground. Brewery up the street is great, we can only recommend. It's a 15min walk to the historic center. Once you come down the hill, walk straight through the tunnel and you are in the center. There are electric hookups (which look sketchy but work) and water faucets at the sites. We had hot showers, seems like the owner had to turn it on. There is light in the bathroom, the switch can be hard to find. We paid 130pesos/night the first 3 nights and then extended for a week to go to language school. Price went down to 100/night.Report Check-In
tried to camp at this park and we couldn't get through the roads in 20ft rv and a truck camper with a small tent trailer. the wires are low hanging and the campsite is very small. larger vehicles may want to check the roads before driving through. we came in off the 110 and took the panoramica but still couldn't make it.Report Check-In
Previous comments about trying to finagle the owners out of money and that it's not worth any money are a bit mind blowing.
Electricity at your site. Decent bathrooms. Corner stores where you can buy water, beer, smokes, etc. very close, and you're within walking distance to Guanajuato?! Beautiful view. There's a craft brewery up the hill (go to the top, maybe 2 blocks, not far, make a right, it's on the left at the first street).
Awesome owners. We didn't haggle at all and were charged 110 MXN / night for all 5 of us. Haggling seems to have hurt the others.Report Check-In
Bargain bargain bargain and try to make the best deal! The place does not worth any money, its just a parking lot. We managed to pay 130 per day but we stayed 9 days in total. Other than that, cold showers, no light in the toilets, total run down BUT safe and near the town. DONT DO the mistake to drive through the town. Check your route and take the Panoramica! No big rigs at all. Only for VWs, pick ups with motorhomes and off course motorbikes!Report Check-In
Make sure that you approach this overnight place downhill, coming from the Panoramica road. Then it is easy. If you come uphill, it is VERY steep and difficult to enter the place.
It is a place full of parked cars, many of them wrecks. But the location is very convenient, and the bathrooms are clean.
We loved this place. They have a dump and access to water plus a great view! It's a short 15 minute walk into the center and Guanajuato is a fantastic city! We paid 150/night for three night. IF YOUR HAVE A BIGGER RIG or simply get nervous driving steep narrow two way stress you want to enter from.the North off Panaramica it looks like it's annoyingly long but I promise it's not.Report Check-In

We went here to camp but did not stay here, because we did not think it was safe to leave our gear here if we would visit the town. During the day the place is used as parking lot by neighbours. The gate is open all day without any security. Great place if you are in a van, not so ideal for tent camping. (We ended up staying at Hotel Independencia in town)Report Check-In
Stayed here for two nights and paid 140 MXN per night. Showers with a lot of hot water and clean like the other facilities. We had no problems with barking dogs during the night. The city center is in walking distance and the Falafel restaurant definitively worth a visit.Report Check-In
Great little spot. We set up our tent here for a few days. It's outside of the center of the city, but you stay on a side of the city that is more authentic than the city center. You also get a beautiful view of the city. Showers and bathrooms. Dogs are barking all night long, but it's part of the charm. Owner is very friendlyReport Check-In
No signs indicating the name of this place. Just a few trailer signs. Owner lives on-site and quoted us a rate of 150 pesos/night. We talked him down to 140 pesos, since we didn't need any electricity. Bathrooms and showers were very clean; owner was mopping floors during our stay. Guanajuato is definitely a city of barking dogs, but it was off and on. Earplugs worked just fine. The view from the site is great!Report Check-In
We stayed there for our first night in GTO. The owner is friendly and the price is normal. We especially liuked the hot showers and the view. At night, you hear lots of dogs bark. The next night, we moved to the "presa de la olla", where you can park for free.Report Check-In
Great and I think only option for camping in the city. We are enjoying ourselves in this amazing town of guanajuatoReport Check-In
140 pesos... Great owner, great locationReport Check-In
Bathroom is clean but no TP. We are tent camping with two motorcycles and a dog. Charged 100 pesos per person per night. Don't know if higher due to holiday weekend, rates increasing or just cause they felt like it. No one here when we arrived and we were partially set up so no real way to bargain and our Spanish is poor. The location is fantastic for walking into town. Vehicles safe. It is essentially a grass car park and does fill up at night, clearly the primary business. It is no joke about dogs barking so use ear plugs. For a secure place to camp in the city it is a reasonable deal because we found lodging that included parking in the city to be expensive for our budget.Report Check-In
Great location, and the host is very friendly. Cold showers, lots of dogs barking, and it's a bit tough to find. We came right through the city and didn't have too much trouble, but we were in a jeep, so it was easy to maneuver. I'd say the electrical outlets don't work but I'm not willing to try to find out. The view is great, and Guanajuato is an amazing city. Don't expect too much from this campground and you won't be disappointed. We paid 140 pesos. 3.5 stars on location and view. Also, the easiest way to get downtown from here is to walk all the way to the bottom of the hill, stay to the left at the bottom, and at the round a bout go left through the Santa Fe tunnel. This brings you right to the center of town.Report Check-In
Clean and well looked after campsite in a great location. Our truck is 24 foot long, but it is wider, taller and heavier than most RVs that size. Getting onto the site in our truck was pretty awkward, but it is certainly possible, and didn't involve any reversing . The gate at the entrance to the trailer park is probably the limiting factor on the longest RV which could gain access, but height should also be considered. At 3.55m tall, my awning was rubbing against the tensioning cable running underneath the power lines; anything taller would be impossible without a stick to raise the cable.Report Check-In
Excellent when it comes down to location, walking distance to historical center. A little pricy , 70 pesos/person in 2014, showers with cold water most of the times unless you complain to the owner.Report Check-In
This is more of a parking lot, but if you can get in here, you have great access to central Guanajuato, as well as a beautiful view. To access this place, make sure that you stay on the access road that goes around the city. Do NOT let your GPS route you through the middle of the city (it is a nightmare).Report Check-In
PROS: nicest park manager ever, one of our favorite views from a campsite, water and electric hookups (not at all sites). hot showers – CONS: dogs barking all night long (this is not a joke, other overlanders have recorded the cacophony that is Guanajuato at night)- 140 pesos per nightReport Check-In
Official Camping for 140Pesos/night. There was a super loud alarm in one of the parked cars there and it was going 5x a night and 100s of dogs barked the WHOLE night. Cold shower, sockets life-threatening, it was definitely not worth it!Report Check-In
Grassy parking overlooking Guanajuato. Looked like there were old hookups but not sure if they were still functioning. Clean bathrooms but no hot showers, the owner was extremely sweet and invited us on multiple occasions if we wanted to shower in her home. Barking dogs at night and neighbors parked there, but overall a nice place.Report Check-In
It's a 20 minutes walk down the hill to the Centro Historico. The bathrooms are quite basic but clean. The showers were cold. Electricity / water / waste water at site. Great view of the opposite side with it's colorful houses.Report Check-In
