Glad I didn't know about this before I camped there with my family on June 24 - 26. We had a wonderful time, and had the entire place to ourselves most of our stay. I normally make a habit of check in here right before a Baja trip, but just got too busy and didn't find the time. Ignorance truly can be bliss!

On the other hand, does anyone really think the perps will stay in (or regularly return to) the area and keep milking this cow? I kinda doubt it.

Update on armed robberies:
I received a message on June 26, 2018 of a third robbery. (In addition to the two at the Parque Nacional). The info was minimal. Location was at K38 of the dirt road between Laguna Hanson and and La Rumorosa (38 Km south of La Rumorosa, and approx 14 miles north of Laguna Hanson). If you are familiar with the area, it is a narrow rocky hill which has been improved with the addition a section of concrete surface). (The Rancho El Topo turnoff is at Km35).
A vehicle was stopped by a large rock or rocks placed in the road. Bandido jumped out with a gun.
In contrast to the two Laguna Hanson robberies, this "highway robbery" likely has local ranchers quite concerned.

BajaDave,
Glad that you were safe and had a wonderful stay in the park. Not surprising that you "had the entire place to ourselves most of our stay."
Were there no posted warning signs or contacts from rangers? Advisories were on the internet to stay away from the park until the situation was under control.

Quick update, drove the dirt road from El Condor on Hwy 2 near Tecate to km 55 on Hwy 3 near Ojos Negros via Laguna Hanson to do a little exploration last Thursday. I have to say it was a little creepy. I was by myself, no other vehicles, no people, just some run down looking ranchos with locked gates and old cabins abandoned and falling to ruin. I was already a little jumpy, then I got out to check the road where it went through a bog and almost tripped over a dead black cow laying there. Whoa! :o After I changed my underwear :biggrin: I did some exploring then headed north. Got to the "choke point" at K38, saw the same stripped SUV sitting there (some good scrap metal for anyone who wants to go get it) and the plan was that if any rocks were in road to see how fast I could drive back down that hill in reverse... (As an aside, I worked at the OII landfill in Monterey park that had miles-long single lane dirt roads and learned how to drive backwards going 25 miles an hour looking in the side mirror). Anyhow, no rocks in road, no banditos, the campground at the "lake" was full of big groups of campers, appears peace and tranquility have once again returned to Laguna Hanson. Getting there from the north is a bit of an adventure but if you like miles upon miles of open space and fresh air it is pretty amazing to see what Southern California must have been like about a hundred years ago.
