LIVE HEALTHIER AND LOWER YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT ON EARTH
San Juan Del Lago Eco RV Park & Community is more than a regular RV Park. We care for people and for the Earth by learning and experiencing a holistic, sustainable lifestyle. We are now at an embryonic stage to develop our own permaculture by producing our vegetables & fruits. We already have eatable organic cactus orchard, we also start to grown our own compost and we are now recycling plastics, cans, glass & cardboard. We have a vision to become an educational center to serve the local community by promoting environment awareness and sharing our experience & knowledge. So much more to come!
Currently the Eco RV Park has 22 spacious RV spaces (60 when completed) with full hookups (good water, stable electricity), a restaurant/kitchen area, bathrooms with showers, laundry service, terrace with panoramic lake view, recreational areas, spa services, cooking & yoga classes, and free & fast wireless internet. The RV park is gated and provides excellent security.
San Juan del Lago Eco RV Park & Community is located in the heart of traditional Mexico, in the state of Michoacán, in rural Municipio of Cuitzeo surrounded by a peaceful lake and breathtaking mountains.
This magis area offers beautiful nature sights, a spectacular collection of flora and fauna and a slow pace to relax and unwind from stress. The lake has seven islands inhabited by ducks and herons. It has a perfect blend of weather, location, intimacy, tranquility and convenience.
In 2006, Cuitzeo was designated a “Magical Town (Pueblo Mágico)”, which means it offers you a “magical” experience, because of its natural beauty, cultural riches and historical relevance. Read more on "Tour Services" about Cuitzeo, other Pueblo Mágico cities, the Monarch Butterflies Sanctuary, Morelia and what is possible to do all around.
"Eco-Communities are human scale, full featured settlements which are harmlessly integrated into the natural world in a way that is supportive of healthy human development and can be successfully continued into the indefinite future.” Robert Gilman

What our clients say about us
Arturo has built a wonderful, centrally located RV Park here 20 minutes north of Morelia. The services are top notch including site size, electric and WiFi. He delights in taking his guests around the area and explaining everything to them. Brian Wilkins, March 16th, 2017
Nous conduisons un motorisé classe À, 40′ pusher/diesel et sommes restés une semaine. Le site est situé à la jonction de la 15 et la 43, à 20 minute au nord de Morelia. Le Campement est niché en haut d’une colline et offre une vue imprenable sur le lac Cuitzeo, le 2e plus grand au Mexique. Avec l’aide du proprio, Arturo, nous avons manoeuvré avec facilité au travers du village pour nous rendre directement au campement. Nous ensuite monter la côte d’un quart de mile sans aucun problème. Des lots immenses pour vous garer avec vue sur le lac et les montagnes. Tranquillité assurée. Douches et toilettes impécablement propre. Cuisine publique. Terrasse avec vue etc. Un excellent arrêt (court, moyen et long terme) pour visiter: Sanctuaire papillons Monarque, Morelia, plusieurs Pueblo Magicos, Patzcuaro, Cuitzeo, sites eaux thermales … Belles randonnées à cheval ou à vélos (plusieurs sentiers), kayak, pêche…Arturo adore servir de guide, demander-lui de vous faire découvrir la région! Nous recommandons fortement et nous reviendrons l’automne prochain! merci-la-vie.net , March 4, 2017
FYI when driving towards the camping use the “libre” not the “toll ” road because the camping is not accessible from the toll road although it is right beside the toll road. nice spot for relaxing a few days. will report after a few days. By: rieneke.com, January 14th, 2017
Un des plus beaux terrains de camping de tout le Mexique. Nous avions prévu rester une nuit, nous y sommes restés 5 nuits. Énormément d’espace entre chacun des emplacements. Hyper tranquille malgré l’autoroute qui passe près. Il y a une bonne côte à monter pour se rendre au campement. Nous avons un classe C de 32 pieds avec un Ford E450 et on a monté sans problème. Un excellent arrêt pour ceux qui reviennent de la mer et qui veulent visiter les environs.Nous recommandons! By cathe28, January 7th, 2017
This is a hidden gem of a hideaway with gorgeous views! We spent a week here relaxing, doing maintenance, and exploring the area. Amazing views of the lake and towns below. Enjoy hikes, natural hot water baths, comfortable weather, and uncomparable hospitality of the owner, Arturo (Art). Art speaks excellent English and is proud to show you around the area and make recommendations. The showers are very nice and clean and hot. There Is A restaurant/Common area Kitchen with Fire pits. The WiFi Is fast. The climb to the entrance is a little steep but concrete offers plenty of traction and very doable. We visited Morelia from this site, very convenient. Check it out!

Free for “boondockers”not requiring electricity/water/sewer. Large spaces but access is not easy through small village streets and steep hill. No signs, ring first – and don’t follow google maps, follow the GPS coordinates from the website!! By home2homeamerica, December 1st, 2016
Great place. Huge spaces and nice large and clean restrooms. Not really convenient to any big grocery stores, etc. make sure to call ahead of time too let Art know you’re coming. By thelifenomadic.com, November 7th, 2016

By renzorzi, October 18th, 2016
Owner Arturo is working hard to get a good thing going. 21 enormous spaces, full hookups, hot showers, and great view of lago Cuitzeo. A very steep climb to the camp, but apparently big rvs do make it. Art also loves taking people around to show off his favorite spots. You MUST call first so he can be there to open the gate. By The Next Big Adventure, August 23rd, 2016
Located on a hill above Lago Cuitzeo at the junction of Mexico 15D and Mexico 43D just north of Morelia. The owner, Arturo, is creating his dream campground here. Bathrooms are great, view is great, sites are spacious and have excellent hook-ups. He’s built his own sewage plant. It’s a steep drive in but do-able for everyone unless driving a low-powered big rig. Arturo took us all over the little town of San Juan Tararameo which is sitting on top of a hot water reservoir. There are hot water wells all around town and a very simple, basic hot water bath where you can soak for as long as you want for $1 US. He also took us to Cuitzeo, across the lake, which is very historic and interesting. So much potential here! Arturo still working with the city to get a better entrance road. Arturo loves where he is and wants everyone to love it as well. By bobandmarilyn, January 13th, 2016
