Arroyo Amargo Campground


Anyone have experience or know anything about this campground which is on Google near La Lobera north of El Rosario? Couldn't find anything on web in English or Spanish. Thanks!

Where are you looking?
I just went on Google Earth and Google Maps and I see La Lobera but no Arroyo Amargo or campground listed nearby?
There was camping at La Lobera before the project closed up in 2015. There is also open camping at La Bocana, west of El Rosario.

Thanks... not so close to La Lobera after all... On street view, this is near Km 39. La Lobera road is at Km 47.5.

In the old days before Hwy. 1 and not long after was a place called El Consuelo. It was about where the road to El Rosario swings away from the coast to head up the mesa. Today it is the road you take to get to the giant sand dune that Cameron likes to take his Trail or Missions tour group to, and you see it on his TV shows.



See El Consuelo, north of El Rosario, on this 1973 auto club map? Hwy. 1 pavement ended near the Mission San Fernando/El Progreso road (KM 118/121) in mid-1973.

Looking at Google Earth (2010 img) and Bing (img date? but better of the two) show nothing so perhaps fairly new. I did see a POI in Google for the place, it will be great to hear a report of what exactly is there.
