Los olivos campground


Mexitron and I pulled in there recently hoping to camp the night on way home from further south. We drove around the place but didn’t see anybody - no campers no camp hosts. Needless to say we ended up elsewhere and both agreed wouldn’t try there again. ( the overwhelming stench of the restrooms didn’t help either)

Was wondering if it is more of a seasonally active place- like spring through summer?

We were there 2 years ago (quite a while in Baja time) and it was open and we were the only people there. It was in Jan I think.

The owner is a Nomad and has been also posting on their Facebook page, inviting guests...?

Sounds like you drove around inside the campground. Why didn't you stay? Reads like you didn't see anyone and moved on.

I would have stayed.

If you were up for dry camping, Jardine's would have been an option.

Jardine's? I have only stayed in their rooms, where can you dry camp, in their parking lot?

"no campers no camp hosts - stench of restrooms."
Very odd. They lock the gate at night - there was a gringo family managing and living there last time I was there. There's also a trailer home at the back where managers live. The restrooms, playground, pool, meeting room - all clean and well cared for the several times I've been there. I would definitely go there again - I like that I am usually the only camper. Your experience is not the norm, for sure.

Both Jardine’s hotel and restaurant have large parking lots. I’ve never camped there but in the unlikely event Olivos was full or closed, I’d ask about camping there...

I’ve always reached someone by phone or email at Olivos so they knew I was arriving.

Once camped at the Riviera in Loreto arriving minutes before a caravan of RVs. Massive 5vers and Class A’s. Minutes after it was empty, it got full. Try to keep track of caravans and races. Ever been stuck behind caravaners who didn’t know how to drive Baja?
