Description

This is a small, locally owned park with mature fruit trees, palms, grass and a nice, slow vibe. The owner sees you pull in and greets you on his scooter. Water and hot showers included. Restaurant now open. The hurricane damage is apparent along the riverbanks. Including this access road. There is a little traffic noise. Beyond this park is a tiny seafood shack right on the ocean where the river meets the sea. There are a few permanent little homes in this park. Everyone was friendly and quiet. Very family feel to it. Owner-managed and improved for the last 22 years. You can tell they care very much.

Latest Check-Ins

wonderful camp spots, our 20 foot trailer for a couple of nights, 300 pesos a night with power no water hook up. Melissa was super welcoming and spoke English well. it's not everyday you can camp with banana trees in your campsite. Beautiful lush vegetation!

The place itself is adorable. Water and electric. Such friendly staff. $200 pesos per night.

However very underwhelmed with the on-site restaurant. I would highly recommend to save your time and money and walk down the road to the nearby restaurant. Or eat in town. Also, the restrooms and shower are not up to par. Found mice droppings so I did not use thee facilities.

Other than that, I would highly recommend staying there if the above doesn’t matter.

Best place we have stayed. We stopped for a night and stayed four. All the descriptions listed here are accurate. I would add the the entire time we were there the staff was cleaning and improving. To the last person they never failed to smile and say hello every time they saw us.

The food was great.

This is a great place to base yourself and take advantage of the wonderful beaches to the south. Our favorite was Playa Coyote.

As described, very full as compared to other spots we visited. Of you gave a bigger rig (like ours-30’) you must go on the highway to the town. Call ahead and someone will lead you to the property. Do not attempt to use the given coordinates which take you to the lower road and into the old part of town as the roads are too narrow, (we leaned the hard way!) otherwise a lovely RV park right along the river.

Pleasant campground in a convenient location in Mulege. On the river, less than a mile to the beach or town. $200 pesos a night. Electric, water, flush toilets, shower and wifi on site. Flat grassy sites with palapas and picnic benches.

absolutely beautiful, friendly, clean. have hook ups available. The river leading to the Sea of Cortez is right across the street. Walking distance to anything you would need. Has restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Showers and bathroom.

Beautiful oasis in the heart of Mulegé. Backs up to an arroyo which is great for off leash dog walking. Good cell reception . Ok internet. Showers have hot water and good pressure. Nice covered shared area to eat, read or hang out on devices. $10/night ($200 pesos) or $300/month (can rent an improved space for this).

Total Garden of Eden as described! And we felt super lucky to get the last spot (it’s full during COVID - lots of permanents and long-timers here). Still 200/night.

Jesús greeted us as soon as we arrived and gave us the lay of the land. Friendly neighbours. Super quiet and delightful - fruit trees, flowers, hummingbirds. Riverfront with a couple of restaurants (some closed during COVID).

We decided to stay for a month and use this as our home base for visiting the locals beaches. They opened a restaurant while we were there - yummy. Manuel takes amazing care of his property. We can totally see why people come here then never leave!

They handle turnover well - I would advise calling in advance, but also don’t let that deter you...they’ll probably squeeze you in.

Each site it private with a palapa and table. Walking distance to town.

Very nice place for spending some time in a quiet small town. Hot water, wifi, eléctricity, full hookups for the rich guys and a clean bathroom for us.
Enjoy the place and see you at the road guys..!!!

4.5 STAR spot.

4G 4 bars of Verizon service. parks internet strongest at Pavillion near sites 1,2. Multiple bathrooms and showers. Observed regular cleanings being done on the 1 near pavilion. I chose to clean a less used one. Washer on site. Love our site. Huge greenery seperates sight from neighbor. Tropical plants, green grass underfoot. Town a mile 1 direction. Beach 1 mile the other direction. Will definitely extend my stay in this great location.

Excellent stay. Like a little garden of eden. Nice owner, 100 pesos per person. Has electric water and sewer hookups. Highly recommended

Very nice place, indeed. As described. We walked to town and beach (town is closer) and liked it. Good for more than 1 night. Payed $200 for a hook-up site. Shower and restroom basic but very much ok to use.

Great camping spot, close to everything, hot shower. Very friendly, highly recommend it. We ended up 5 nights instead of just 1!

Good RV Park, very green. Your are camping right next to other campers (it's an RV park after all...) but there is a green wall between sites. Showers were very clean and hot. TP at toilets (a + in Baja).

Somos mochileros y hemos armado nuestra carpa en una de las plazas de los coches. Hay toma corrientes, baños y duchas. Por nosotros dos pagamos más o menos $MXN 180 por día si mal no recuerdo. El dueño y la joven de la recepción fueron muy amables con nosotros, hay café por $MXN 10 en las mañanas. Está alejado unos 10 minutos de las tiendas y unos 15 del mar. Está cerca de un bar donde paran en su gran mayoría estadounidenses seguido de canadienses. Muy buena onda la gente en el bar.
La huerta es muy tranquila y agradable, genial ver las estrellas en las noches.

Friendly staff greeted us upon drive up. Waited patiently as we walked the park looking for a good spot. Very friendly folks staying in the park. Beautiful location across from river. You can walk, bike or drive to Centro Mulegé.

Great place green grass and trees nice change

Hi everyone!! i am jesus. I work at Huerta don chano .please be advised that our prices are still $200 pesos/Níght for campers and small vehicles and $300 pesos for RV's and motorhomes. Thankyou.

Managament.

We loved this place - it was an oasis of green that we didn’t even know we were missing in the Baja deserts. Wifi was slow but worked in our site (and we stayed far from the road because they warned us it could be loud). Clean, all the amenities, a treat. 200 pesos for one night.

Nice campground with all the amenities as described, but the owner wanted us to pay 100 pesos per person, although it was supposed to be 150pesos without electricity or 200 pesos with.

We are a family of 6 (2 adults, 3 teens, 1 kid), no way I would pay 500 or 600 pesos for a night in Baja. We badly wanted to have a hot shower, so I negotiated and he agreed to let us stay for 300 pesos.

Great place and the best value for money (200mxn no budging) so far in Baja. Nice owner. Proper hot showers and pressure. Strong Internet (but we were the only ones using it). Avoid spots closer to road on weekends, the locals live driving up and down with loud music until 3am, but we didn't care to be honest.

One of the nicer pay sites we’ve been to in baja, clean bathroom and solar shower, great wifi everywhere in the campground (able to down load podcasts and a few movies) friendly people! Not sure if we met the owner or the son who may run the place but he spoke very good English and was very helpful. Slightly expensive at 200peso for one night, no budging on that. We are in the off season and the many large fruit trees provided some much needed shade and they said we could pick as much fruit as we wanted! (Banana, lime, mango, papaya, guava, plums)
Highly recommend!

We camped right next to the office. WiFi signal is very strong, however while we were there the actual connection to the internet didn't work. The Telmex cellular signal was strong however and I got 4G throughput on my T-Mobile phone.

There two bathrooms very close to the office and a shower-- which has excellent water pressure and temperature. There is also a covered area with a hammock and shade. The campground is well watered and cared for -- with green grass and trees.

Good place to stop for the night. Manuel is very welcoming and speaks good English. The campground is nice with grass, papaya and banana trees. Tropical vibe. Also: BEST shower in Baja (warm water and powerful stream). There’s a bar/restaurant down the road that you can walk to in probably 15 minutes. Both places are dog friendly.

Lovely place along the river. Clean bathrooms and shower. Can get a taxi into town if needed.

Car des fois avoir l'électricité (assez fort pour l'écran et la PS4 de notre fils) et internet, c'est agréable... Ici, c'est rempli d'expatriés de la Californie ou du BC. 200 pesos, 14$ Can. avec tous les services.

Really nice campground. Two sanitary buildings with one shower and one toilet each.
Sites have power and water. And Palapas with picknick tables! Where do you see that in Mexico?
Front row gives you sun in the winter and a nice view of the river. Wifi depends on where you are, but can be rather good at the office building. 200p all included.

Stayed 2nights; for 200Pesos/ night with power and water; everything else like described! But the WiFi was pretty slow at our two days of vacation.

Oasis in the desert along the river. Quiet and friendly. Very clean and safe. Enjoyed the view, palms and flowers.

Nicest RV park we have seen in Baja. nice view of the river. right on the road but a pretty quiet road after 7 PM. Didn't have to wait for the bathroom or the shower ever despite it being full which was surprising with only 1 of each. The grass and the trees really made this nice even though we were all very close to each other. the River view was great and it was less windy then on the coast. Town had everything we needed. We did laundry, stocked up on food, got a tire repaired & refilled our water.

Really nice Campground. There is more than one bathroom available, and they are really clean and cleaned every day. Staff is super friendly, it is quiet at night, town is in walking distance, wifi is good... What else do you want?

Nicest campground so far. $200 a night all included. Electric and Hot shower!! Grass, flowers and many fruit trees! Manuel is very friendly and accommodating. Next to the river, close to beach and town.

We were asked for 100 pesos per person a night. There were four of us so it was not worth it to stay.

nice places with lots of fruit trees like mango, Papaya and banana. showers are electrically heated and very hot.

Beautiful located campground. Small lovely Village with lot of food and market nearby. Wanted place with No water and electra because we are selfcontained but was not possible. Paid 200

Great surroundings, nice vibe. Stayed two nights at site with electricity, 200 MXN per night. People come up with breakfast(yum!), fish, banana bread and kayak rental. 15 min walk from town, 25 min from sea.

Tent-camping here 3 nights with dog. In my opinion, this place continues to be one of the best campgrounds on the Baja peninsula. Good wi-fi & clean bathrooms & friendly people. No evidence of damage from hurricane at this time. Price includes all utilities. 200 pesos/night/camping

Only one toilet and one shower but clean and good water pressure in shower. 200 Mpso for our small truck. Nice sites with water and electricity. Grass is a nice change to sand and dust.
Nice place, we’d stay again 😊👍

Stayed here in our van, 2 people 200 peso per night. Really loved this park it’s lush green and has perfect little parking spaces, ours had a picnic table and a palapa shade. Lots of permanent trailers but it had a lot of space available too. Really cute and quiet. WiFi was strong and fast

Beautiful Campground, with a nice owner. There are only two flushtoilets and one shower. But it's clean and the shower is strong and hot. The wifi was good and fast enough to upload pictures to my blog. Power on every place. Paid 200MXN and stayed two days. Everything is green and shady.

Lovely grassy camp spot.
Hot showers and toilets available.
200mxn per night
wifi rather slow but available.

Our favorite RV park in Baja, by far. The owners put a lot of love into this place, it’s clean, comfortable, and really pleasant right on the river.

Beautiful place, highly recommended. Would stay here again on my next trip to Mulegé.

very lush and green. some sites are very private. Lots of gringos. we paid 200 pesos which included water and electriciyy. Internet is hit and miss.

Awesome camping! Really the best one we've visited in a while. Super clean place, you can see there's much of love put in this place. Private camping space between several fruit trees (papaya's, banana's, oranges). Clean hot shower, clean toilet, really nice owners and security all day/night. Loved it! Stayed 3 nights. Place is 200 pesos per night but well worth it! Close to beach and (small) village. Grab groceries at Leh (big supermarkt) at San Rosalia if you're coming from north.

Nice English speaking car mechanic(s) - first car shop at your right when heading in to town - named Daniel Buckabecks (something like that) if you wanna do a check upon your car. We just did a tire fix.

We stayed here two nights, just before it fills for the winter. 200 pesos with power and fast internet. Owner is very sweet, super friendly expats and locals. Great place. Nice green oasis.

Positives: Good price (150 because low season), decent wifi, warm showers, nice lots, good power, shady, nice owner on arrival, free papaya.

Negatives: After initially telling us we could use a fridge set up next to our van, the owner sent a pickup full of workmen late at night to remove it, making us get up to remove all our things from it. Lights were also kept on all night, which didn't help with the already abundant mosquitos and wasps.

A nice place, and assuming the fridge thing was out of the ordinary, seems like it'd be a nice place to spend a few nights. (Just be sure to bring repellant!)

Very nice, well maintained camp sites. Easily talked the manager down from 200 to 150mxn for a car camping spot. Manager stopped by to check in several time and brought us papayas from the trees that divide the spots.

what an awesome spot to chill! hang your hammock! paid 100 pesos full hook up, great wifi at camp spot, fridge, bathroom, shower.... just great!!

Price was 200MX for a car/tent camping for 2 of us. Road not long annid easy to maneuver through with our 2WD sedan car. Like others said, yes abundant fruits you can pick and beautiful flowers and birds. We were given a spot next to washing station and bathrooms/ showers. It also included a small fridge. There was cleaning bottles by the sink and wrapper in the sink. Bag of dog food on floor by wash station, CD and empty cigarette box left at the site. Once the lights dimmed so many night insects including huge cockroaches around property and inside fridge. The place looked like nice but cockroaches and questions of cleanliness will keep me from returning. Though I've heard from gringo locals and friends whom traveled to hot humid countries, cockroaches are common as they like to live in the leaves of the trees.Staff was super nice and other guests.

Stayed here for a few days. Very nice campground. A lot of privacy as trees separate the spots. Internet was working well. Shower and toilet is nice and clean. Jesus (manager) is super super friendly and helpful. He checks on us all the time and helps us with what ever we need. Fresh fruits from the trees are yummy. The town is 15 min by foot and the ocean around the same. You can rent kayaks if you wish. 200!pesos with hook up
We would stay here again.

Nice site with tropical plants. Good hot shower, clean. Near to river. English speaking, friendly people. Close to Mulege.

Beautiful garden with a lot of exotic birds. Excellent value @ Mex$ 150 (without electricity) per car including WIFI and hot showers

Nous confirmons tout ce qui est dit dans les commentaires précédents. Manuel est un propriétaire très attentionné et qui s'occupe bien de son business.

Now run by Manuels nephew,now has second shower plus additional toilet along with improved wifi ????
200$m per night.

Well kept, very green campground. Hot showers, flashing bathrooms and fast wifi. Town is only 15 minutes walking distance. Water, electricity at most sites. Free sweet oranges. M$ 200/per night. Stay 7 days and 8th day is free. We loved this this place and stayed 5 days.

Nice little RV park with more folage (trees, plants, etc.) than the typical Mexican RV park. View of Rio Mulege from park and short distance to a gravel beach. Close to central Mulege. Good wi-fi with electric and water. Camping allowed.

Nice spot with well kept grounds and clean bathrooms. Price for non-electric is now $150MXN and we had to push a little to get that price (we HATE doing that), but knowing we don't use electric, we didn't want to pay $200 a night. The biggest downside to the place is the close proximity of the spots. If you are unlucky enough to be near folks that like to party late every night (as we were), it's not easy to escape the noise.

A really nice place with individual sites separated by fruit trees and bushes. Everything very clean and very friendly hosts. The nicest commercial CG in the BC so far. We payed 200 M$ per night, tentsites 150M$

Beautiful location, we had a canopy covered concrete slab, and a place next to it for our RV, friendly people and nice hot showers, can highly recommend this place

Only stayed here one night but found it really comfortable with friendly owners. The wifi was fast, the shower had hot water, our pull-through site had RV hook ups. There were also basic areas for tents in the front for 100p/night. There is only one bathroom to accommodate the campground but never had any trouble with waiting. Cost 150p/night

Nice, clean, shady place a lot of green plants. Water, electricity and sewer on every place. Hot shower, clean bathroom. A lot of dogs, most are friendly. Fast WiFi. Good distance to town.

100 pesos w/o electricity. Hot showers, wifi, shade under the trees and very quiet. Dont miss it on your way south to La Paz.

Excelent place, clean, hot showers, water for the camper, and great wifi! 100 pesos.

We paid 100 pesos for a spot without using electricity. Near town and the beach, pretty trees with fruit and flowers, grassy spots. Was very quiet at night; a few other PanAm travelers here at the same time. Shower was hot, as previously noted, only one shower/bathroom for all campers, so sometimes busy.

We paid 150 pesos/day for a nice level gravel spot with electric, non potable water, a sewer dump, picnic table, shade trees, and an outdoor sink (although the drain emptied onto the ground). There is one bathroom for everyone to share, so it's best to time your shower accordingly. The shower has hot water and good water pressure. The owner, Manuel, speaks English and is very helpful. We even had laundry pickup and delivery. Friendly expat community here. We stayed 3 days.

pulled in and immediately was asked for 200 pesos for a night... agreed on 150 with no electricity. tractor was working for couple of hours right next to me, very noisy. anyway i got what i wanted - dump and place to stay overnight.

Very nice place close to beach with wifi and Hot shower. friendly owner

Nice spot. Shaded. $10 US. 1 bathroom with shower between all camping spots. Clean. Manuel the owner is very nice and speaks English.

This is a small, locally owned park with mature fruit trees, palms, grass and a nice, slow vibe. The owner sees you pull in and greets you on his scooter. We paid $100pesos for a night with water and electric and hot showers. The bathroom is a single room, so there could be a wait. And since the road washed out, there is a bit of traffic through here. The hurricane damage is apparent along the riverbanks. Including this access road. Beyond this park is a tiny seafood shack right on the ocean where the river meets the sea. There are a few permanent little homes in this park. Everyone was friendly and quiet.
