I don't know about the other side of the canyon... just Arturo's and above at Mario's (formerly Angel's).

Dry Camping can be done anywhere in Baja... why go into that canyon and pay to not have a hot tub? Yes, Rob or anyone down there will take your money if you want to pay them to camp in the desert.

Why not go on down to Palomar Canyon? I would like to check it out with you, as you have been there already... and I have not.

OK!

Even further south of Palomar is Agua Caliente where there was/ is an Indian village... Neal Johns has written about it in 2002 and BajaTaco has a photo from his big trip of 2000.

I talked to Rob via email in June and Arturos camp is still closed. What a shame. I had some incredible times there. GC is a unique and special place. I'll never forget watching the Leonid meteor shower from my hot tub in San Marcos. (1999?) Though I did like the camps better before they built them up

There's a big party every Oct. 31st on Sta. Monica Blvd in W.Hollywood that while isn't as tranquil as El Canon de Guadalupe, will provide plenty to talk about for months and months! :bounce:

Taking a look back at our last trip to Guadalupe Canyon on Halloween, 2008... Not sure about Ken Cooke's addition to this topic, however! :o

Bummer that the Loya Family of Guadalupe Canyon could not get along to keep everyone there going in this rough economy!

hawaiicruz.....any clue from that conversation if this place will ever reopen?

I was in G. Canyon about 40 years ago. It's changed a lot (some for the better based on the pictures) and back then all that was really there was the large "pool". I don't remember but I bet we camped for < $5 and we were the only ones there. I can't remember how the drive in was back then but we were in 4x4's and don't remember having to use it but I'm sure the road wasn't as nice either.

We camped there several times between 2000 and 2009, it was unlike any other camping in Baja... expensive but well worth it for the experience. Private camping, private hot tubs made with the natural rock, palapas, etc. We often heard nobody else or just sounds in the distance.

It was a good thing that Canyonman Rob and Arturo had going along with the couple of Americans that designed and built the hot tubs, water delivery system, and palapas. Nomad 'Hotschott' was one of them and it was he who introduced us to Guadalupe Canyon in the beginning.

People get old, families argue over ownership, greed sets in, and other factors ended Arturo's Campo #1 (the first campo developed, with the big warm water pool, just below the source spring).

Do you have any photos Kevin?

Here are a couple sets I have at Guadalupe Canyon Hot Springs:

SEPT 2006: http://vivabaja.com/906/

I found one that I had scanned in but it doesn't show the pools, etc. and it was taken from up on the hill with only the terrain showing. I'll have to check in my old photo collection and see what I can find.

Any photos from Baja's past are great to share.
If you need help on how to get them to show here, let me know.
The Choose File button, below where you type here will allow photos if their file size is not over 250 kbs. Large size photos are easy to share by using www.postimg.org and just set the viewing size to 800x600 (max width on Nomad is 800 pixels).
