We stopped in Quartzsite a couple of years ago for 9 days of boondocking in the desert during the Big Show. IMO, every RVer should experience Quartzsite at least once. It helps to hook up with a group if you can for your first trip. It was a big help to us in knowing where to stay, where to go, where to get water, where to dump, etc.
That being said, we really didn't see any real bargains at the shows of flea markets, and it was windy and dusty some of the time. But it is a real sight to come up over the last hill before Quartzsite and see the white dots of RVs spreading out across the desert as far as the eye can see. And the sunsets are gorgeous.
BTW, Quartzite is the mineral, Quartzsite is the town. The town was named for the mineral, but due to a misspelling in the early days, the name of the town is officially Quartzsite.
