San francisquito

Has anyone been to San Francisquito this fall? I heard that it has deteriorated to a point that there isn't any accomodation for a non-camper(tent,bag,food prep equipment) It used to be rather crude but a enjoyable place to spend a couple of days and nights.

I was there in late September and the place was a ghost town. The restaurant was closed and there was no one around. I can't comment on the accommodations as I only stayed there for 30 minutes.

That used to be my favorite stop in Baja. Damn nice time back in the day


Too bad the place is deserted now

What a memory I have of being there.

Economy maybe...Heard a guy from Florida comment how nice the beaches are in San Francisquito and he had seen some good ones.

Relaxing place, bring provisions.

There are really two San Frans - the left split takes you out to the cove, and I've never gone there. You can see the layout, and I remember a 'camping' sign. This cove is very pretty and looks very protected for watercraft.

Has anybody been there and talked to those folks?

I was there last year and bought gas there as they didn't have any at what i think of as San Francisquito. I was told they were working on camping spots and it certainly looked more prosperous.

I remember hearing rumors someone had purchased San Francisquito - I hope it turns out to be true.

It was open in October

I was there in mid October and it was open. The restaurant was functioning and there were people staying in the Cabanas. Not many, but some.

The guys who use the trailer from So Cal were there and catching little fish from the shore.

The water was crystal clear.

The road getting in was pretty torn up.
