Another Quartzite question

I have a couple of newbie questions about Quartzite -

When do the long-term campers begin to arrive?
Is there a time when all the good spots are full, or is there always room for more?
When do long-term campers begin to leave for the season?

Thanks.

Although the LTVA areas are in operation from Sep 15, as I remember it, the first influx of people don't really start till Oct sometime, depending on the temperature's at the time.

The LTVA areas are vast, so availability of space is constant. Also, during the peak periods, huge numbers of rigs are in the 14 day areas, so not influencing the LTVA spots.

Departure is also somewhat controlled by the Temperature, and for most, when it gets over 90 constantly, and hovering near triple digits, it's definitely time to head north. April/May for full timers, and perhaps March for those that have to get to a stick house with grass growing!

All good spots are full long about the last half of January (Which is the big RV rally)

Normally in QZ you can grab your field glasses and you MIGHT be able to see your nearest neighbor's rig (IF on BLM land,,, Some of the private CG's are more full)

Last half of Jan you can dang near clmb up your ladder to our roof and step over to your neighbor's neighbor's neighb or (Ok not quite that dense but close)

Drive a few miles from the heart of QZ and you have the place to yourself basically, it's huge ! Don't worry about not finding somewhere to park , first day park anywhere and then cruise around in your truck/toad to find the place you like the best !

Last Dec. we pretty much had our pick of spots. We left after a couple weeks and went back in Jan. and there were a lot of people but didn't have a issue finding a spot to camp. L Stayed for a week then left and went back in Feb. and the place was pretty empty again.
Like others have said, don't worry about finding a spot. And the further you go out of town the less people you will find.

ATV

If you park in the BLM are you allowed to ride your ATV anywhere close to Quartzite

So, if you park on BLM and it is not close to quartzite it is not a problem to ride across BLM to get to big tent? Sounds great. I read that they are trying to close parts of BLM to ATV travel. I have never been there, so I do not have any idea what goes on there other than it seems like a neat place.

ATVs can only travel on established roads and trails on BLM land. In the LTVAs there really isn't much to distinguish the trails and you can drive pretty much any place.
