Advice for attending Quartzite rally

We are considering attending the Quartzite rally this year and would appreciate some pointers from those that have attended recently.

I am sure someone will have great advice.

We have ridden up on MC from Yuma. There are a lot of folks there! Lots of interesting vendors and great people to meet.

Hi Greatscot, My wife and I plan to spend a couple days (18th-20th) at Quartzite on our way to Yuma. I'll be following your thread to also pick up any advice. I'm a little concerned has to the where and how you pick your spot on BLM. Also a little concerned about security, I'd be happy to spend the day looking after neighbors rigs if I could have a day where neighbors would look after mine.

Security is always concerning, and so is animal sitting. Could be employment for both ?

Been there 3 different years. Never thought security was ever an issue.

As to where to park. Well when you are rolling along I-10 you see nothing but RV's parked everywhere out in the desert. So it's as easy as getting off interstate and driving along the frontage road and pulling off into the desert. The ground is more like rock than sand. So no issue.

Park your coach -drive toad around & find another spot if your not satisfied.

If u check some of the small RV parks in town very likely you can get a site with hook ups Probably $35 per night or so.

I do not think you will be able to find any place with a hookup at that time. All I can tell you is we park SOUTH of town on BLM land at the La Posa entrance to the west. It cost but you stay for 14 days for 40 bucks. Free access is further south and north of town. Make sure you are full of water and holding tanks empty. The water there is terrible.
This will be our 12th year. We stay for the whole event as we also ride atv/utv's there on the trails that are there. We use heat at night so expect it to be cool. The rest is a BLAST!

Unless you are going into a campground, come with full water and empty holding tanks.

You can go south to mile post 99 (La Paz Valley Road) and just pick a spot, no charge. We have been going there since '99 and have never had any problems with theft.

Last year, even during the 2 week rv tent, there were empty spaces in a lot of the campgrounds. Prices do go up during any of the shows there because that is when the campgrounds make their money. They have to pay tax on every sewer hole 12 months out of the year.

Is there any places that rent 4 wheelers/ dune buggy's?

I don't know of anyone that rents atv/utv's. I think it's because of the liability factor.

They rent them in Yuma. Not sure where but a neighbor rented one last year. Expensive as I recall. Long way to drive from Quartzite but I can find out the merchant if you are interested.

If you have concerns about security consider camping with a "group".

There are many RV brand groups and clubs and as well as groups like iRV2 who have gatherings around the Quartzsite area. We joined a Newmar Kountry Klub group last year and had such as good time that we're joining that group again next January.

In addition to mixing with the group and meeting new friends their is the security of someone always being around the campsite gathering area.

Rentals may not be available at Quartzite but there are sure boatloads for rent in Sedona. You name it, they got it for rent there.
