I like Dagget's too. But it's not really an RV park, there are no hookups - electric, water, or dumping - although you can go to the back and get water and, if you have a macerator pump on your RV take the hose to one of the banos and dump.

edm 1,

Are there any transient RV spaces available with hookups?

Maybe Guillermo's?

None have been available in the past that I was aware of.

The last time we were there the Villa Vita had electricity until 9pm. they were still on the Generator. They had Electricity in town but the owners of the hotel said they couldn't afford to hook up to it.

I like staying up by La Gringa, but I also have a generator. There are no RV hookups up there. The last time I parked at Villa Vita, there was a few sites that had electricity but you need a meter to test which ones work. This was a few years ago though. The deal with Daggets is that if you're in an RV, you have to park towards the back away from the shore. I like parking on the water's edge.

Chuck, Daggett's can be nice, but can also be a mess of noise. If the family feels like it, you'll have Fiesta Night, and nobody to complain to. OK ramp, ok shore-fishing w/ light tackle, good view, some sand/beach w/rocks. Happy trails, amigo. Might see ya on the road, watch for my front bb plate and white 5th wheel.



If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If it don't stink, don't stir it....

and if it ain't disgusting, it ain't discussed.

Geez...to be honest, I wouldn't call anything at LA Bay an RV Park. Maybe a spot in the dirt to park your RV. But a park? That's a big word! The time of year makes a huge difference with Daggets. In the summer that place can be an oven. And windy. That's the problem with north of town. That heat just blows across the desert, often in the middle of night. There is the sort-of-abandoned RV area right in front of town near the beach. I saw a dozen RVs there last month. Not certain but it may get wet in an extreme tide.

So the old government RV park with full hookups (next to the more recent, but now also gone turtle sanctuary) is totally gone? We stayed there in 1976... it was pretty full that summer... and that was before pavement got there! It was Campo Archelon, I think?

DK, The government RV park is no more. People park there without hook-ups. Campo Archelon is just to the north and offers a quiet camping experience, on the beach, with no hook-ups..

Thanks... What a waste, huh? Well, for many years it was the only game around... but surprising that nearly 40 years later, still no full hookup RV park?

are there any bathrooms or showers at this location? From the aerial view it looks like there are a few Palapas?
