We are traveling California March 21st, would like to dry camp near Quartzite on the way, undrstand it is very busy this time of year. Should we anticipate finding a spot easily, or might we find the area at capacity?

myfiona,

We were in Quartzite the weekend of the Superbowl. There were plenty of sites available in the campgrounds.

If you want to dry camp, there were many spaces available north of town.

Have a good time.

W8RLM - Bob

Even during the busy season, which it isn't, there are tons of campsites.

We dry camped in Quartzite for 3 day the 3rd weekend in March this year (a week or so ago) and there was hardly anybody there. We were at the Hi Jolly 14 day free area North of town and there were mabe 25 campers there. It must be able to hold 500 plus. We did have 2 campers circle us at 1 AM several times looking for a spot, but that was not needed. The vendors had pretty much gone. If you have a 4 x 4, there are many interesting trails to see.

Hi All: We too are wondering about staying in the famous Quartzite. Plan on passing through on weekend of 3/28-3/31 with 45 ft. MH and toad and were wondering what ya do?? Just pull over to some empty spot...or...do you check in at some campground as usual....er what?? Anyone have a suggestion for a one or two night stay?? Have driven through area before and seen vast areas on both sides of I-10, but don't have a clue as to where to pull over to stop. Thanks. Steve & Lynette

Go to www.boondockingguide.com for info on LTVA areas around Quartzsite and other areas. Fee charged at LTVAs', free at other areas outside of town. Rules and Regs, etc. Roadrunner area 6 miles South of Quartzsite on Hwy. 95 is free for 14 days.

Lots of space in town. It has been in the low 90's recently. So if you want power I suggest you go to one of the many empty RV parks. Nearly all of the vendors have left, but it's a good time to kick back with your book or do some geo-caching. Marv

If you have a decent 4X4, you can drive out to the giant skull in the KOFA area.
