DavidK need your mapping help. Camping at Alejandros, just north of Rosalillita


Anyone been to that camp spot just North of Rosaliaita. I thinks its Alejandros?

David K trying to find out on a map how far North of Rosalillaita it is. Camp spot for surfers, although we will be running up and down the beaches in our Polaris'

Any comments or concerns?
Is there a full time resident there?
I think guys that surf stay there

Thanks in advance
Alan from San Diego

I don't know much about the area around Santa Rosalita, but Campo Renee is probably a couple hundred miles south of there. It is near Punta Abreojos.

Nice camp if you get that far south!




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

I have been there several times and know some of the locals and the owners there...very nice folks. Depending on the time of year...and surf...it can get real full or be empty but as far as I know it is a pretty safe camp.

it 4 miles or so. it turns into a ghetto during the surf season at times. the number of humans using two outhouses is astounding but, being the first spot off the road, it is what it is. if people are there your stuff will be safe. if its empty you're on your own.

OK, sorry but I was making dinner tonight, then it was time to be with my bride...

OK, I see Woody already mentioned it is just a few miles north of Santa Rosalillita... and when I drove down the Seven Sisters Coast Road in 2007, I saw the signed turnoff to it.

Here is the overall area, with a red arrow pointing the location:



Here it is pointed out on the National Geographic Baja Norte Map:



Here is the area pointed out on the 2003 Baja Almanac folding map. Note that San Andres is the historic name for this area. I believe Alejandros is there by Puerto San Andres, or very close to there:

This time of year there are very few people around. I spent 5 days just south of there and saw 3 cars the entire time. If you go out there go the The Wall" and see the arch thing.

I do hate map post. They are all on a AAA maps or The Almanac. But if not for maps what would he post. We should all do our own planing. The fishing can be good however.

Yes DK, I know he asked and you're helping, no reason to defend yourself. We all need a place to shine and this is yours. Have a nice day!

Map posting is just one part of how I can help or share.

You miss my trip reports and history posts...? Many that are not about providing maps. A lot of people are visual, and printed words do not always fulfill their need.

Maps are not your enemy... the new, good roads are! The Seven Sisters coast road has been on maps since the late 1950s... and it was bad roads that kept the mobs away the 55+ years since. Paved and graded roads are your enemy, not books and maps.

Super easy to find. Just drive on the paved road from the 1. There is a giant graded road to the North right before you hit town. Take that and it has signs. Should be fairly empty this time of year.

Yup,
Here is my road log from 2007 on the section of graded road north of the Santa Rosalillita highway (log from north to south):

0.0 (0.0) Beach road (Punta Lobos/ Valle los Ojitos)

6.8 (6.8) Road west to El Marron fish camp (near Punta Prieta/ Punta Negra). Road (or dirt highway here) heads away from the coast around the Sierra San Andres.

17.0 (10.2) Cross Arroyo San Andres

17.2 (0.2) Road west signed to '3 Alejandras' (Puerto San Andres).

21.1 (3.9) Come to PAVED Santa Rosalillita highway, turn right for the coast. (Hwy. 1 is about 8 miles to the left)

22.1 (1.0) FORK, Escalera Nautica Harbor is 1.2 miles to right. Straight ahead goes to:

22.5 (0.4) Santa Rosalillita village on the beach. Gas and supplies available.

Reset trip odometer to 0.0 for the final section of this coastal road log to Hwy. 1 via Punta Rosarito.

========================================

For fear of upsetting the anti-map gods, here's a map I whipped up to Santa Rosalillita and San Andreas on Google Maps. If you'd like a GPS file of the route, please U2U me.

DK,it is obvious you are a tough act to follow in terms of helping both new and old nomads navigate Baja on this forum. It is a shame others who lack your knowledge and experience in Baja and willingness to help, resent this to the point of simply ignoring your information and moving on without posting cutting remarks. Your maps are very helpful, and those who would prefer to wander aimlessly and "discover" interesting spots on their own certainly have that option by simply ignoring the post.
Keep up the good work, it is appreciated.
