8 full hookup sites with shade trees and planted privacy screens.
Motel rooms also available.
Restaurant open until 10pm
Basic camping sites without hookups also available at reduced price (90 pesos a night)

NOTE - Suggest not connecting your rig to shore power for 30 minutes after the generator starts because of excessive voltage drop

Latest Check-Ins

90 MXN per night in dry camp. Hot showers. Most part of road was asfalted, only last part was dirt road, but really easy dirt road, easy accessible by small car.

We love this place. Big spots for dry camping. 90 pesos. Short walk to the beach. The Mexican combo plate and margs in the restaurant are enough of a reason to visit.

90 pesos to park our vehicle in the picnic area with our dog, walking distance to beach, toilets!! have yet to check out the showers- can't wait. staff is really sweet, can't beat this price. onsite restaurant and bar, really cute

Ok for one night. They had a restaurant and a bar which was nice. The food was good. Dry camping 5US. Was able to dump and fill up with water before we left. They have happy hour at 4pm too. The WiFi was decent- avg.

Skip the crab. Drink the margaritas instead. 90 pesos to dry camp. Lots of dogs loose so if you have your own like we careful. The ones here were super territorial and weren’t stoked on our pooches crashing the party

Great campground. They have 8 full hookup back-in sites and at least 3 pull thru dry camping. Worked great for our caravan of big rigs (40+ft).
10 min walk to the beautiful beach.
The food at the restaurant was good and the margaritas were super strong!
The crab dish was huge and delicious

Great place and yes, be aware of the margaritas ; -).

Decent, friendly out of the way place with a good restaurant as mentioned. Beware the margaritas, they are strong!

Margaritas and crab were great! Stumbled back to our dry camping spot. Good wifi. 80 pesos.

nice place, 10min walking from the beach, reserot near looks old, it tastes similar.. wifi works! To me 100mxp for dry camping with cold water is still overpriced being in Mexico, but thats other story..

We stayed in their parking lot for one week. As described, you can dry camp in the dusty parking lot for 90MP, that includes the use of toilets (only one shower and one toilet with a hole in the roof available at the moment). For 180MP you park inside and get pretty much the same. We asked the guy at the reception and he let us fill our water tank and empty the grey water one when we were leaving. Overall this place looks like a 70's motel, everything looks kind of old and not taken care of. Many retired Americans around. On the other hand, for 90 pesos you get a safe and calm place to stay with a decent wifi and ok toilets, which might turn out cheaper than staying for free at the Misión Santa María and be forced to eat a meal per day. Food was great and everybody was super nice. Also this place is less than a 10 minutes walk to the beach, which is not that beautiful but has some cool sand dunes.

Stayed here one night, as described. Although they do not offer electricity of any kind at the sites anymore, as of the last 6 months this is the situation. So have to charge your phone in the restaurant. Had margaritas at the bar and all the permanent American residents get together at happy hour for a drink. Good WiFi reaches sites. Nice place although quite random! Nice walk to the beach :) paid 150 for 2 people in a van

still 90pesos the night for dry camping.
We needed electricity and the owner offered us nicely to plug in into the restaurant next to the bar.
Internet average for dowload, slow for upload. Be patiente...

Very clean, no smell and large rooms. We paid $19US for a room with 2 Queen and a single bed. Hot showers.
They were on solar generator so no more 10pm curfew. 24 hours of electricity. Good WiFi.

Awesome lovely place, we stayed already 2 years ago and came back!Owner very friendly and helpful!
Dinner and Breakfast very delicious 😋
Very good showers, hot! Good wifi and very quiet! A very good place to stop for 2 nights and more...

Very cool out of the way place Bebo is the owner great guy

ABSOLUTELY love this place! The crab is the best around and worth the MX300. That's about $16.67 U.S. You're not going to find that good of crab dish in the states for that price. Dry camping is only $5. Water and septic is an extra $5. Wifi is free. A double room is MX450 and only MX50 a person after 2. They're now on solar power, so there's power throughout the night with heaters in the hotel rooms. Unfortunately, because there's no guarantee that the rvs won't run all the battery power down, that means as of right now there's no power hook ups just water and septic. But there's flushing toilets, running water, and hot showers. I never pass by the area without stopping here. The undeveloped beach is within walking distance. Less than a mile. You can hear the waves at night. It's peaceful and the people who work here and live here are just great. Oh and happy hour is from 4pm to 5pm. Restaurant is open 7am-10pm every day except Christmas! A MUST visit destination.

nice spot set back from the beach. they seem to have done/be doing some improvements. shower was hot and NOT salty. bathrooms clean. owner was very nice. bar was nice had a margarita which seemed a bit pricey. wifi was super slow.

stayed in an RV spot with water and power for $170 (4 people)

75 pesos to dry camp. they have full hook up spots (electricity, water and sewer) for more money. beach is beautiful, empty and we saw a sea lion swimming. we had happy our margaritas, which we very strong. the food seems a little expensive, 300 mx for the crab, so we didn't eat here. WiFi is great, strong and fast. showers are warm.

Epic spot. We paid 89 pesos (5 bucks) for two people in a campervan. It's a weekday though, but facilities are great for the price.

Safe, relaxed camping near to the ocean. Great bar and restaurant with happy hour. Ex pat crowd.

Quirky motel/campsite/rv park just south of San Quintin. Arrived in time for happy hour: strongest margaritas ever!! It was thanksgiving and the Americans who call this place home invited us to join their feast. Hospitality abounds. Hot showers, flush toilets MxP 90 for camping

85 pesos per night standard parking. 120 pesos for sewer connection spots. Friendly retired americans abound. Restaurant and bar with happy hour 4 to 5pm. Warm shower and baños ok. Not the nicest place.

had the place for our own....
very cool beach just a 5 min walk away
quiet, nice people
food was okay
80 pesos for dry or 160 pesos for hookup sites

Yummy food. Delicious margaritas. Not beautiful but simple with some charm.

Nice spot to camp for the night. 75 pesos for no hook up camping. Food was amazing. Get the crab if its the last thing you ever do! Best we have ever had!

Great food in the restaurant!!!!

A bit disappointed after some good reviews. Very nice family but only one bathroom open, no crab, long walk to the beach . Agreed that was maybe nice 20 or 30 years ago but in disrepair. Paid $10 for a hookup

- We paid 85 pesos for dry camping per night per vehicle.

Électricité coupe de 22h a 15h wifi intermitent faible 10$usd une douche tiede, A 15 minutes à pied de la plage

Our fave so far in Baja. The crab at the restaurant is EVERYTHING. The beach is EVERYTHING. The campground was quiet and safe. The people who live there are cool as cucumbers. Clean bathrooms with hot water. The beach was completely deserted, hidden by dunes the dog loved playing in. Clam fisherman show up at 330 - neat to watch. Charges us 160 pesos. Could have been cheaper bc we don't need hookups but they were so sweet that we didn't bother trying.

On arrival he said M$70 for dry camping no hookup (later when we paid for food/drinks/camping combined it went up to M$80. Camping is parking in a dusty spot of ground near the restaurant but facilities were OK. Flush toilet with TP provided and cold shower. Toilets in the restaurant were quite nice with soap and paper towels. Unfortunately we didn't have enough cash (they don't accept card) to order cracked crab but we ordered quesadillas M$70 each for 3 which were served with refried beans - very good. Also received complimentary tortilla chips and dip as an appetiser and complimentary black bean soup for starter. Margaritas were awesome M$75 unless happy hour (half price).

Adding photos

Paid $75 pesos for no hookup. Shower was warm and ok. The place was deserted and felt like a resort from the 80's which had never been renovated! happy hour between 4 and 5pm, 1/2 price on beers and margaritas. WiFi was good and we had the WiFi signal from the camping area. Dog friendly. Good for one night stop.

Excellent place to stay. We paid 150 pesos. The restaurant was wonderful! Great margaritas and crab!

Paid 5 dollars to park with out any hookups. A short walk to the beach. Crab dinner and margaritas was amazing. Felt safe and I didn't even worry once. Everyone here was super friendly.

130 MXN/night. The cracked crab and margaritas are as amazing as we remember. Also, electric is generator powered and gets turned on at 3:30 pm until about 1 am. Apparently gets turned on for a short while in the morning as well. Happy,hour at 4, half priced drinks :)

We really liked this place. It was a great camp to catch up on some rest before the big day driving to Guerrero Negro. Great restaurant - the cracked crab dish and the clam dish were great. Happy hour from 4 to 6 pm at the bar!

We paid 120 pesos with electricity. The campground was quiet and the amount of stars you could see at night was amazing. Warm showers. One bathroom under construction. Couldn't get wifi. Friendly owners.
