Quartzsite

Anyone going to Quartzsite and if so where do you like to stay. Been going for years and looking for possibly a new spot, been staying east on town on Dome Rock Road. Love watching the coming and goings on I-10


I like to stay for about 10 to 14 days

Ron and Katie

A lot of folks stay out north of town on Plomosa Rd.
We aren't boondockers so we stay over in Bouse at an RV park out of the traffic and hustle and bustle.
It's about 25 miles from Q but that is close enough for us to visit or have lunch when we want.

Hi Clay, We usually spend a week in QZ and stay at the Shady Lane RV park. Had to make our reservations early in November for a spot Jan 23 thru the 30th.

Took a drive over to Bouse, nice place, but we wanted to be a bit closer to the activities.

The first few times we went to QZ we dry camped at the BLM Hi-Jolly camp area at mile marker 112 about 3 miles north of QZ on US95.

Like Clay, we stay in Bouse with full hkups. We like being away from the crowds. If we boondocked we would stay on Plamosa road.

Last year was our first and we camped with folks by invitation. Great group of people. That said, we were on BLM land south of I-60 and east of S. Central. The great part of that location is the fact that if you have a off-road or 4WD vehicle you can get into town by driving on the dry creek and never have to fight the traffic, which I might add can really get crowded at times.
As far as keeping your site, I can't address that.
BLM has a dump station that is free for people with the BLM paid camping sticker. Last time we used it we were just leaving and the wait was about 30 min.
Our group has not had any problems that I know of with reguards to problems while gone from the camp site.
Good luck and have a great stay, we are going again this year if all goes well.

We go to mile marker 99 on hywy 95. This is 6 miles south of Quartzsite. A great group of people meet every year for their Amateur Radio get together. It is called Quartzfest, January 15 thru 25. Anthing you want to know about ham radio is there. It is free and you can boon dock for upto 14 days there. You can even take the Ham test to get your license at Quartzfest.
Look up WWW.QUARTZFEST.org for more info.
See you there!!!

We are in Bouse and pay $160 per month. Electricity is metered and costs $0.20 per KWh. For us that is about $50 per month.
