2 RV Parks near San Carlos, Sonora
May 2016 - $23.00
This is the only rv park we have stayed at in Mexico so far. It is located about5-6 hours south of the Nogales Az. border. You travel on good highways to the park which seem very safe at least during the day. The park probably has the nicest and most helpful manager of any park I have ever been too, on either side of the border!! It has wide spaces that are grass and dirt, 30 amp electrical, with non-potable water, and sewer at each site. Good english cable TV and good wifi at each site. The park feels very safe with a night security guard and locked gate. Overall the town of San Carlos I believe is very safe for tourists. The manager can make arrangements to have a 5 gal container of purified drinking water delivered to your site whenever you need it for about $1.25. Would definitely return next time in Mexico. Lots of Rv'ers use this as a stop before making the trip down to Mazatalan; I was told it takes about 12 hours to get their from San Carlos. - Namaste-1961

We had none of the problems mention by the previous review. Pool was great, dogs enjoyed the park, no water pressure issues, sewer was fine, though WiFi a little weak at times. Owner and manager very friendly and helpful. Perhaps after most "snowbirds" have left, services are better. Park was about 1/2 full, and the time and weather ideal. Noise from the nightclub across the street was Mexican music...get used to it on a Friday night! - Horski

We traveled to San Carlos for a one month stay. Upon arrival we were charged $30 more than we had agreed upon months earlier when we paid our deposit for our reservation. Our initial spot had no power and the sewer hookup was under the motorhome, plus we were out in the roadway. We then moved to another spot. Mexico standards and USA standards are very different. Cable meant 2 very fuzzy channels. WiFi works if you are sitting at the office. 30 amp power, some days you have it, some you don't. Find the breaker box because you will need to reset it hourly. Some days you will have water, some days you may not. Little water pressure. We had to run our pump all month long. The grounds are kept clean; however, my dog couldn't walk anywhere within the park without getting goat heads (a stickler weed) in her feet. On the weekends the night club across the street is very loud and stay open until 4 a.m. The pickleball court is great but there is rarely a slot to play because the owner allows players outside the park to take most of the time slots. We did not use the pool or hot tub. The laundry facilities - washers and dryers are very old. Some work, some take your money and don't work. My clothes didn't get clean and the dryers get so hot that one sports fabric shirt melted! I bought these issues to the owner and he is very condescending unless you have your husband with you. San Carlos is a beautiful area. That's what made our trip great, not this RV park. - ckharvey

We stayed here for five days in early April. The park was only 1/3 full. We had a nice space. The office staff was very pleasant. The vegetable and shrimp vendor came by each evening. San Carlos is a bit commercial, but we enjoyed trying different restaurants. The RV park is about a quarter mile from a beach. The beach is clean. We had a good view of the marina. Directions are fair...good signage until you come to the turn-off, then there is no sign. We and others missed the turn and had to backtrack. - rlhoge

In previous years this park would have earned a 10, then a 9 then an 8 now a 7. We have always used this park for a 3 or 4 day break on arriving or leaving Mexico. Since the death of the original builders and owners some years ago the site has continued to deteriorate. It used to be the highest standard park in Mexico, but lack of maintenance over the years is taking its toll: The hot tub isn't, the laundry room is down to one dryer, many power outlets are hanging by their wires, the wireless connection is longer available at the rig (it seems no matter how closed to the building you are). Wireless is only available in the game room, at this moment 7 users are on line, most using skype, so everyone is talking at once. Fortunately, no one wants to play billiards or ping pong! The placed is still clean, but it's not the park it used to be. Next year we will probably stay in one of the others in town and save the extra 10Km. drive to El Mirador and back. - Canadian Rainbirds
