Last year! That is if you are speaking of the Puerto and not the mission. TRIP #1. http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=85374

The road was fine... graded, no traffic from Coco's Corner, 21.9 miles.
Here are my photos and area map:

well david, thank you for your riveting trip report, you didn't even get out of the car!
this is one of the better side trips you'll find. totally uninhabited for years, there's still a chapel thats untouched still with the alter,jesus staues, crucifix's, crosses, chapel stuff exactly like it was when it was a thriving fish camp. next to it the school house remains still with desks and workbooks scattered around, remnants of the school yard and bano's. down on the beach a shrine still remains that still had a wrapped gift on it, it was a little girls piece of costume jewelry. on the other side of the bay is the never used fish processing center with concrete filet tables and water troughs, out side are the dual fish smokers, never put into service. this is the building david calls the "house" in his investigative report:rolleyes:. just back from this is a huge stone water pila, beautifully built with the names of the builder inscribed on it, again never put into service. back from the beach is the "town", homes abandoned with still clothing and housewares strewned about, one of the buildings a saloon with a primitive bar still in place. david found it too muddy for the tacoma to handle. on the way to the beach a ranch house still exists, probably a dream that ended in a dried up well......
tell us more about your trip david?
wow indeed!

So, what caused this area to become abandoned? Like a modern Bodie?

If you have to venture more than 100 yards from the car, then it ain’t worth seeing!

I was out there last spring, by myself. Rolled in and looked around, I was not comfortable setting camp and left. Maybe it was me, I follow my inner lizard, if it isn't comfortable i move on. I was looking to post up there for a couple of days, but kinda spooky,

Thanks, I got the same feeling plus high tides made the flats muddy and I missed checking out the fish camp on the other side.

Stop at Coco's and talk to him about it. He will tell you not to go out there.

At one time it was an isolated drop off point for drugs from the mainland.

I was there about 3 years ago, mid-day, and it was empty and isolated.

if Coco's stories are correct, and he will tell you several, i would stay away as a camping spot.

If you want to see it, I would suggest 2 or more vehicles and don't stay too long.

David K's map and info are enough for most.

the wild card, this is the pila that was built to support the fish processing plant that never saw water and the cattle ranch just south featured a dry well. I heard the same stories from coco, about the same time his cuate, remember that dirty bastard that was watching over his place, and I certainly don't doubt it, not unlike dozens of other remote beaches.

Wow! I get a spooky feeling just looking at the pictures.
I am not superstitious but I had what I would call a minor panic attack when in New Guinea I put in on a small island. I couldn't wait to get out of there. Later on I was told by the locals no one ever goes there because of bad spirits. I should post this on non Baja trip reports someday.
