Latest Check-Ins

tony is very friendly. 300 pesos for the night is compatible to other camps in the area “up north” more. hot water, good wifi, comfortable bed.

wifi in the restaurant, not in my room. but it is pretty fast.

I’d give this place a meeeeh. 300 pesos is a lot for what it is- a gravel pit and a luke warm shower. Tony was accommodating but seemed kind of grumpy. I guess they don’t get a lot of tourists with the pandemic on. The restaurant was closed when we were there but they made me an over priced margarita anyway while I sat inside and used the wifi which was decent. The gate was suppose to open at 7am but we waited around for an hour before anyone showed up. The phone number seems to be disconnected. Fine place to crash if you are out of options.

Stayed two nights. 30ft Airstream with long bed truck. Showed up at night after long day of travel (I know, I know,don’t drive at night in Mx). Turn right at big Don Eddies sign, if you go past you end up at the marina and they will encourage you to stay there instead. DE staff was off for the night (Sunday) but some friendly long termers told us to just pick a spot and someone would come by in the morn. Super sweet, friendly staff. Very relaxed. Spots were gravel and we were able to fit two RVs in one big spot. Didn’t test the electric- it looked pretty dodgy. Bathroom was a single toilet with two shower stalls. Restaurant had great food. Wifi was out due to someone running into tower with a truck. Good enough Verizon coverage to get some work done. Grounds need some love, but still pleasant enough. Camp dog, Rocco, slept at our door every night and played with the kids all day.

Great Baja stop-over. Chile Relleno is awesome.

Ignore some descriptions of this place, they confused the public car park with Don Eddie's Landing RV park and hotel. There are good new signs to follow but if you end up at the public launching ramp you went 100m past the road to Don Eddie's.

There are pleasant clean rooms, fool hook up sites and dry sites. Hot showers, flush toilets are available to campers.

Bar and great food is also available all at reasonable prices overlooking a beautiful estuary.

No frills place, but the kindest people ever! Tony the owner, salt of the earth. Very laid-back, full of helpful info. Place needs a little love, but new camp hosts (Nash and Kim) just arrived and are fixing things up! WiFi good at restaurant but tony is working to get it boosted so it reaches the sites. All sites are basically in the gravel
Lot out front, but for a night or two, this place was great! $15 no hookups/ $20 with, although electricity is currently not grounded, but Nash is working on that too! Very chill and you feel so welcome here!

This place is not so great like everyone claims. We parked at the public parking next to El Molino Viejo restaurant around 4:30 pm on a Thursday and tried to cook dinner while people all around us were blasting loud Mexican music. It seemed like they were in a competition of who’s music is gonna be louder. We couldn’t listen to our own music and could barely concentrate on our food it was a pure torture.. contrary to the reviews and the description of this place the Wifi was non-existent. On top of that the place is really dirty-lots of Cigarette butts and garbage around, not the best place to contemplate nature. In the end we finished our food and quickly drove to Hotel Misión Santa Maria which is only 10-15 mins drive from there and wayyy quieter, safer and nicer! Definitely do not recommend to park here overnight, do yourself a favor and drive to Santa Maria and you will feel a big relief!

My favourite site in Baja. Very friendly, clean, great food and secure.

This is our second time here and we absolutely love it. The staff is the kindest that Baja has to offer.

Don Eddie's has become my go to place to get away and relax. Tony is an incredible host and Octavio is a great cook! If you are looking for a relaxing atmosphere and good food this place can't be beat..

Great place to spend the night, clean, specious and beautiful. 20 USD per night for an RV

Classic, no frills Baja! Worth the $. Didn’t eat in the restaurant but had a pleasant drink. View of the water is nice from the bar.

nice place , for a few days, nice People, Tony the orner is very friendly ☺

This place is filthy. The sites have cigarette butts and bits of litter and the bathroom, thats just ferrel. Tent camping fail. But it was late and id already been to another failure at the coast which was way worse.

No wifi.

camping price had gone up since last reports, currently $380 (peso) or $20 per night for RV.

Spent a great, quiet night here. Hosts were very friendly and helpful, there was a group of older American fishermen playing drinking games and they gave me a free Don Eddies shirt for joining in! Showers basic but who cares.

Tony is a great host! Delicious margaritas, sting ray stew and fish tacos for dinner! Clean bathrooms and warm showers. Very quiet - we have the place to ourselves.

UPDATE: Road to Don Eddie's and the Old Mill Motel has recently been paved all the way to the Old Mill Restaurant parking lot. Last right turn to Don Edie's and Old Mill Motel is a very short stretch of dirt. It is now a nice ride to get there.

Road to place was rutted but we made it. Rv parking was ample. Electric was out but manager bought us breakfast to make up for it. The bay is wonderful and peaceful. Felt pretty safe but kept an eye out. Will return to stay on way back. The people were friendly. Make sure you watch the sunrise on the dock. Sea lions and glassy water.

Full hookups. Restaurant on site. Showers and bathrooms are odd but fine. Wifi in restaurant area. 130 MXN/night or 195 MXN/ with electric but they charged us 130/night after our first night even though we were plugged in. Stay a week, pay for 5 nights. The water available is salty...

$10 U.S. A night. Clean. Rough road to get here. Worth it so far.

A very nice camping location ($10) with rooms ($40) and a bar and restaurant. The dirt road is rocky but the location is fantastic. Worth the time to get here vs anything else in the area.
