Smile Quartzite Groups

Last year when I went to the Escapees/Xcapers convergence it was my first time at Quartzite. I learned that there are many special interest groups camped out in various locations around the area.
On my next trip I would like to visit special interest groups to learn more about our RV culture. Face it there a lot people with a whole bunch of varied interests that get together in this annual gathering. Does anyone know if there a centralized website or board that has been created that lists all the activities and locations of groups in the area? I.E. Drones, Kites, Foodies, Nudists, Musicians, Church folks, Off Roaders, Motorcycles... etc. You understand.
What a great opportunity to learn and experience other's interests than the cross section of experienced people at the gathering at Quartzite!

As newbies to the Q a list like that would be awesome.

Also planning to go this year. Will be my first. Debating boondocking but I have a feeling I'm going to be getting work done so I imagine I want to be parked in the center if things.

Boondocking can be had right next to all the services. You don't have to be in one of the awful RV parks of Quartzsite paying big bucks.

Here's some information on what Quartzsite is all about and some of the groups there and how to find them:

Quartzsite, Arizona - The RV Gathering Place | Roads Less Traveled

If you have a specific group in mind just Google the group and include the word 'Quartzsite' and perhaps the gathering place will show up.

We've spent many January's with the Escapee Boomer group (up to 200 rigs off and on during a 2-week period). We'd go into 'town' on our own occasionally but most of the activities are done within the group - hiking, 4-wheeling, eating, campfires, music, outside movies (yes, while boondocking), seminars and just getting together with full-timing friends that we've met over the years. It's a great time!

Duo, sorry I wasn't aware.

Two, thank you. I'm going with some family members who've gone a few times. They stay 15 miles out of town, said their nearest neighbor is 300 yards away. Lol. That's what I meant by staying closer to things. Although I thought I heard there were only hookups in town. Or maybe I interpreted it that way.
Many thanks for the link.
