Description

300p per night as of Feb 2022

We were in El Rancho after somebody broke into our car in Oaxaca (they broke our truck window and stole our tools). Paco, Pepe and their families welcomed us in their RV Park.
El Rancho is new and well prepared with a lot of spots for big rigs with hock ups, dump station and water. The owners are gentle, always ready to help you.
We were there while repairing our truckcamper. They let us use their tools and helped us every time we needed.
The place is surrounded by mountains, it’s very quiet during nights and days. It’s located 10 blocks away from El Tule Tree, restaurant area, the market and laundry. The bus stop to Oaxaca is close too.
It’s the best RV Park we’ve been in Mexico so far.

Estuvimos en El Rancho después de que nos robaran en el centro de Oaxaca (rompieron un vidrio de nuestra camioneta y nos robaron nuestras herramientas). Paco, Pepe y su familia nos recibieron en su RV Park.
El Rancho es nuevo y está bien equipado. Los dueños son muy atentos.
Nos quedamos un par de semanas y le hicimos reparaciones a nuestro camper, toda la familia nos ayudó y hasta nos prestaron herramientas.
El lugar está rodeado de montañas, es muy tranquilo y durante la noche se descansa muy bien.
A 10 cuadras está el árbol del Tule, restaurantes, mercados y lavandería. El bus a Oaxaca pasa cerca.
Es el mejor RV Park que hemos visitado en todo Mexico.

Super nice and clean RV park with grass and a pool! Great place to stay if you want to chill out in the pool or work on your rig. We found it to be kind of inconvenient if you want to check out Oaxaca itself. To get to the Centro - walk 10 minutes, wait for a collectivo with space, drive 15 minutes, walk another 15 minutes to the beginning of the Centro. Not difficult, but takes about an hour to get there, then they stop running around 9pm to come back, and the taxis/Uber/DiDi ranged from 115 pesos to 185 pesos to come back.
If you want to explore Oaxaca, it’s probably cheaper to get a hotel in the city at the end of the day.
But still a super nice RV park!

Fantastic place. Clean, quality bathrooms, pool, wonderful common area, not too expensive. Laundry. Safe, secure. Everything us overlanders like. Absolutely recommend.

Report Check-In

We stayed here for 5 months. It is an oasis in the area. The grounds are meticulously maintained with 2 - 3 full time caretakers and 2 owners, all of which are very helpful and friendly. The owners speak good English which makes booking and dealing with them easy. It is very quiet but can be busy at times. The perimeter is well secured with tall fences and main gate with complete privacy. The pool and bathrooms are decent, though the pool is not heated so can be freezing. The common area and kitchen is fantastic. Wifi is at least 100mb with 2 access points, though the main 5ghz one is best. The rear yard 2.4ghz is more like 10mb. The water pressure is good, though the power was an issue. They only have 15amp outlets on the pillars, though there are 4 outlets across 2 30amp breakers so if you have or make an adapter cable and plug in to one 15 from each breaker you can draw 40amp before tripping the branch breaker. One major issue though is the voltage sits around 127volts and regularly goes over 135volts so even bypassing our surge protector, our inverters would regularly disconnect our appliances for long periods to protect them. If you have a larger or newer RV, this will be a problem. Also you can’t run a generator in the park so you need to make the power work for you. It was a tight squeeze to get our 43’ RV into the rear yard, and the sites are all back in, no pull through, but once in it was a comfortable stay. The caretakers work long days until at least 6pm so getting deliveries here was easy. They would open the gate and receive the items and either keep them at the front for you or deliver them to your site. Out off all the deliveries we received here, only 1 didn’t arrive. They say Amazon using DHL is a safe bet, but other than that nothing is guaranteed. Ours that went missing was through Ali Express and not delivered via DHL. The nearest grocery store is Walmart and the Chedraui in Reforma has a good variety of American brands and goods. One issue to be mindful of in Oaxaca though, is there are protests of the bus and transport workers almost daily and it is very common to have only back roads and narrow lanes to get around with armed protesters blocking all the main roads with busses and trucks.

We stayed 4 night here and payed 1200oesos,its 300 per night, if you stay one week the price is 1800pesos and one month it's 3400pesos.
To add of what all the others comments said, to go to Oaxaca you can take a colectivo taxi at 12pesos Pp or a colectivo bus at 8pesos Pp from the main road 10 min walking from the RV park. They take you to the baseball field and then you walk 15min to get in te center!
Very nice experience and very convenient!

Not much to add, best camprgound we have been in Mexico and paid as a couple 300 pesos per night.
To get to Oaxaca city you can walk to the main street and wave down any of the white-red cars (collectivos) heading towards west, will cost 15 pesos/person.

One of our favorite campsites in Mexico, it has made exploring Oaxaca so much more enjoyable. The water pressure and temperatures in the extremely clean showers are always perfect, the bathrooms are spotless, the Wi-Fi is the strongest we’ve yet experienced in Mexico and the owner is incredibly nice and helpful, he will even help call you a cab to get into the city. There is a pool, playground, kitchen, and washing machine, plus a selection of books and games in the shaded common area.

Other accounts accurate as reported. Very nice campground built and maintained to European standards.

While we were there, a group of Germans were parked on the west side and got quite agitated if anyone other than fatherlanders camped next to them. Ni modo….

This is the best RV park in Mexico. The bathrooms are super clean and the showers have hot water. We camped on lawn and no bugs! We paid 300p per night for water and electricity only. Other sites do have water, electricity, and sewer hookups. I don't know what the cost is.

I would totally recommend this park.

Great place! Cali maintains the RV Park and he is super friendly, helpful and funny. $300 MX per night with discounted weekly and monthly rates also. New and very clean facilities. Currently filling every other space to allow for social distancing. Common area includes a pool with loungers, playground for kids, grill with firewood, and tables. 3 bikes to borrow. Walking or biking distance to Tule. Ask for a key if you plan to come and go, as the doors remain locked. Very safe.

One of the best RV parks in Mexico. Stayed six months due pandemic lockdowns. Now open again. Beautiful park with lovely heated pool, plenty of space and friendly owners. Full hookups, able to accommodate any size RV. 20 minute cab ride to downtown Oaxaca but can walk to nearby small town of El Tule. Free bikes for use, clean bathrooms, hot showers , and washing machine. Also one of the fastest wifi in Mexico, usually over 100 Mb/S. currently 300 pesos per night, discount for longer term.

Not open during the pandemic. We begged, but they wouldn't budge.

We came for a couple of days and stayed for ten. Wonderful park, helpful owners, immaculately clean. Oaxaca city is beautiful and full of history and the surrounding villages have great crafts and wonderful markets. Ten days could easily be longer.

Good base to explore the area around Oaxaca.

Really as it has been written. The owners and Cali who work there are really helpful and friendly people. We loved the place and the atmosphere, with the other travelers there. It was unique for us. You can meet a lot of long term travelers who did the panamericana.
If you are in the area we absolutely recommend this place to relax, make friends, and go to Oaxaca in a colectivo (12pesos)

Great campground. Big grassy area with full hook-ups for about 12 vehicles of any kind and a gravel area with more hook-ups. Super hot showers and clean bathrooms. Swimming pool. Very friendly owners. Shade. Close to Tule to visit and Oaxaca by bus. Monte Albán ruins are close and well worth a visit. $250 a night is a great deal!!

Wow!! that's really the best spot to be in Mexico👍..it's absolutely true: nobody can't stay just for one nigh! We stayed 4,5weeks and it was hard to leave because there are so many benefits close by: little groceries and restaurants in Tule in walking distance, easy and cheap public transport by colectivo or bus into the beautiful city of Oaxaca or the nearby historic sites; the two brothers and owners-Pepe&Paco and their families are very friendly and very, very helpful in all kind of problems; we all ( the campground)were invited to celebrate the "Dia de Muertos " at the 28.Nov. with them; it's the perfect place to calm down for a while in an secure and absolutely well maintained area ; we highly recommend that place! Calli,the always friendly caretaker is the soul of the place👍

The running joke is that nobody can stay just one night, we loved it, the other 14 overlanders we met loved it. We came for 1 night and stayed 5. Much like everyone else we met.
Very clean facilities, hot water and lots of space for all sizes of rigs. Close to the bus or taxi to take you to Oaxaca Centro. Highly recommend if your in the area!

This is by far the best RV trailer park I have stayed at in all of North America. It is paradise compared to other ioverlander spots in the Oaxaca area. They have caravan, big rig friendly capacity for 18 vehicles, covered swimming pool with lounge area, lots of seating in covered palapas. There is 30 amp service, water and dump at each site. Wifi is fast throughout the entire beautifully landscaped and manicured park.
Hot showers, 6 toilets each for women and men. Sites are
spacious (6 meters wide, length unlimited) level on grass.
pet friendly
a second palapa for exercise or lounging
entirely walled and gated for security
common kitchen with fridge, microwave, coffee machine and grinder,
use of bicycles, hammock, TV with DVD, BBQ grills, pizza oven,
playground area for children

Additionally, they have a workman cleaning daily the washrooms, showers, swimming pool, and landscaping the beautifully appointed grounds and walkways.
Everything is kept so clean and beautiful; it feels like a classy resort!
The brothers who run the facility are so accommodating, gracious, welcoming and are immediately like family.
Shopping, laundry, propane, gas and so many restaurants and bars are all nearby.

Of course, this perfect location affords easy access to all the nearby attractions: Tlacolula sunday market, El Tule, Mitla, Hierve el Agua, Monte Alban, Arrozola, Teotitlan, Cuilapam and all local Mezcal distilleries.

El Rancho is the best park I have stayed at anywhere, Covered swimming pool, fast wifi throughout grounds, common seating areas with well equipped kitchen, grills, even pizza oven. Hot showers and lots of clean toilets. 30 amp grounded service, at each of 18 spacious sites. Big rig, caravan, even pet friendly. Beautifully landscaped and taken care of daily by workmen. Groomed playing fields, children's play area and bikes for your use. Located in Thule, close to Oaxaca city and all of the surrounding attractions. These most friendly and helpful owners are daily improving this park which is already a paradise!

This place is perfect. We stayed here nearly 3 weeks. From day 1, to our last moments, we were welcomed like family. The grounds are beautiful, the facilities are excellent, the bathrooms super clean and Wi-Fi plenty fast. Our dog had a great time running in the open field and we enjoyed everything this place has to offer: the pool, kitchen, wifi and the safe and secure feel of the place. Paco and Pepe and their whole family are delightful, helpful and welcoming. Facilities director Calí, is as cool and hard working as it gets. Stop and get him a Pepsi before you arrive. The location is convenient as well, a quick walk into Tule, and it's an easy colectivo/taxi ride into Oaxaca. Don't even think twice, stay here on your next visit to Oaxaca.

Really really lovely spot in El Tule. Easy access to Oaxaca via collectivo (or taxi after 7pm when the colectivos stop). Pepe is so kind and the showers and bathrooms are SO clean. The town of El Tule is very sweet as well. WiFi works in the kitchen and spots close to there. Highly recommend

Wow!!!!...The best place of our entire trip since 16 month! New installed RV and Trailerpark. Stations for water, electricity and grey/black water dumping at each site. Huge lawn area, Swimming Pool, Palapa with tables and a good Wifi..and last but not least: they do not send you away with your dog. During our stay there was a lady with 5 dogs and a couple with a puppy and we with our boy...as long everybody removes the poopoo and looks after his pet and behaves a little disciplined all our friends on 4 paws are warmly wellcomed...and they will love this big grassy field and have space to move around. Family Cordero is running this place and still working and improving. You can also explore Oaxaca by taking the collectivo or taxi from here and leave your vehicle on this safe place. And last but mot least: in case you need something to get fixed on your car a good mechanic is just around the corner (Mecanico Automotriz) We loved it!

Just love this campground!! In our travels from San Diego to the Yucatan, it has to be up there with the best..... A repurposed event centre, it has a fabulous pool/palapa area with comfy lounges. There are heaps of flushing toilets (with TP and seats), a rainwater shower and a HUGE walled area for RV's of all sizes to park with connections to water, power and dump. The facilities are brilliant but even better is the kindness of the managers and workers. Cost us 250 pesos a night to stay. Totally tranquil at night-no dogs or roosters;) Walking distance to the little town of El Tule with the bus to Oaxaca around the block. Can't speak highly enough of this trailer park!!
