Mexican RV parks (commonly called Trailer Parks) come and go. In the 35+ years I've written about RV campgrounds in Mexico, I've been impressed with the resiliency of theTrailer Park owners. The Pacific Coast of Mexico and Baja have more RV parks than any other part of the country. This is not, nor is it intended to be, a comprehensive list of Mexican Trailer or RV parks. It is to give you an idea of what to expect of RV parks in Mexico.
Except for RV caravans, there is not nearly the RV or 5th Wheel tourism of past years. From the 1970's to the early 2000's when the Mexican highways were not always in good shape, there were more people driving their RV's and pulling trailers. Today, with the nice toll roads and the free roads that are in better shape than they used to be, there are fewer. Sure it costs for an RV or trailer to use the Mexican toll roads, but those who do say it is worth it.
I am very happy to help promote a few Mexican RV campgrounds as I hear about them.

Minihaus Suites (RV Park) - San Miguel de Allende - the newest addition to this list is very special. It is so classy they probably would not let me in, but you are welcome. This is more of an artist enclave than a traditional RV park, though you can park here without proving your artistic abilities.
It is an eclectic place built to honor the original expats who help with the foundation of the charities San Miguel is famous for and development of San Miguel as the expat haven it is today. There are tiny houses, RV spaces and more all energy efficient and sustainable. Here's what the owners wrote me:
We have a project in San Miguel de Allende Established by Canadian Women Artists ,St Laurent Gardens, we have created space for 15 RVs. The project has a large guesthouse, Artist Salon. We have lots of parking. Rural setting. Mountain views. We want to offer the project to Canadians. For the next winter season November 2019 to April, 2020. Best wishes, Gene Fisher and Maggi Hutchins.
San Juan del Lago RV Resort on Lake Cuitzeo in the state of MichoacÃ¡n is a welcome addition to RV parks in colonial Mexico. I was impressed by the philosophy of the owners. Please take a look at what they offer in central colonial Mexico near Morelia, Michoacan.
Roca Azul RV Park in Jocotepec, Jal. on Lake Chapala near Ajijic and Chapala is a very nice RV park with cabins. Longitude (dec): -103.424167 - Latitude (dec): 20.266667. Roca Azul has agua termal (hot springs water) in one of the pools.
Chimulco RV Park - Villa Corona, Jalisco - Well-liked park with mineral water pool (balneario). (Note: Website is for water park & cabins for rent. Trailer park no longer has a website. They do have a Facebook page. Water is either 36 ℃ (96.8 ℉) or 38.8 ℃(102℉) and the pH is 7.5. So, this is either a nice, warm hot spring or more of a tepid spring. I reported both temps so you won't be disappointed and may be pleasantly surprised. There are private pools for rent as well as bungalows.
Buganvilias RV Resort - near La Placita, Michoacán has reopened! This lovely park with big lots overlooks virgin beach and has all the amenities. Welcome back!
Rancho Sol y Mar in Mayto, Jalisco is a wonder to behold. They are 100% environmentally sustainable and offer interaction with locals so that foreigners like you and me can understand Mexico. They also have cabins and tents for rent.
Troncones RV Park in Guerrero, north of Ixtapa, GPS coordinates: 17Â°46'37.7"N 101Â°43'04.5"W is open. It is not a mega-park, with only 3 spacious sites, so there is plenty of tranquility. New owners took over in 2015. Despite their questionable literary taste (they are, or used to be, fans of mine), they are probably very nice people. Troncones has more to offer than a beach, including lagoons with crocodiles and hundreds of species of birds. The ocean offers up sea turtles and whales.
Koala Bungalows and RV Park in Santa Maria del Oro, Nayarit is a marvelous place with friendly staff. Not only does it have RV and trailer camping, but tent camping is welcome. There are also inexpensive (but very nice) bungalows for non-RV'ers.
Hogar Infantil - in Ocozocoautla, Chiapas is not technically an RV park. It is an orphanage with 4 back-in spaces with EW.

Payment is not accepted, but volunteering, gifts for the children and online donations are. GPS coordinates:: N 16* 46' 37.0", W 093* 23' 01.5".
