The problem with western AZ is that ALL...(250,000) the people about and around Q-site and Yuma all flock to a few spots....too many folks regardless of how many millions of empty desert they all find their way into one or two spots...MADNESS. On the other hand, eastern AZ....along the Wilcox-Sunsites-Tombstone area is vast and empty. The closest W-Mart is Benson-Siera Vista....West of Sunsites is the Cochise Stronghold with dispersed camping in the rocks, there are dump stations in town and water.....A person can also rent a home or condo in Sunsites cheaper than renting an RV space around Q-site....

Quartzsite Az.

Hi all I'm in Q now the BLM long term visitors lands are closed until our gov. opens again. It is early in the season and not many people here yet. all the 14 day stays are open to park just host not working. This is just a heads up for new people stock up on groceries are high and not much open. Also keep in mind it is difficult to get cash without paying the bank a 3.00 CHARGE. hope THIS HELPS

Are there any boon-docking groups who fly ultralights out there? PPG or powered hang glider?

I don't know who they are, but I have seen a lot of them flying over the camping areas on Plamosa Road.

I guess the BLM lands are open again? What was closed exactly? How do you close a desert?

Hi,
I plan to go to Quartzite in January. Are you single? I belong to a group called WINS,
a group of single rvers that meet up in quartzite every year. It can get alot of people showing up but there is so much desert that you can always park. If you have a toad you can get away from the maddening crowd.
Maybe I will see you there.
Linda

Closed? I though BLM/NFS government land is for the people, not for the government!

What is the attraction to Quartzsite? I drove through there on the way to a boat race at Lake Havasu a couple weeks ago, and didn't notice anything extraordinary about it. It just looked like more desert to me. Is it just a big party for grownups?

I loved the area between Parker and Lake Havasu. The river was beautiful and clear. Made me wish I had my dive gear with me. I could see doing a drift dive and looking for treasure. Did some serious off-roading right outside the campground. We were there during the week so the Desert Bar was closed.

Last year was first time.

My wife and I went last year without a RV (didn't have one). We stayed in Blythe at night. This year we are going in our RV. We had a good time and got to the tent early each day (its opens 30 minutes prior to opening) and was out before the mob came. We also attended the Gem show. Good place to see the vendors and talk to other RV folks.

Quartzite is a great big people and RV watching experience. Not great for the scenery
but you can see all kinds of Rvs there. Vintage and totally hand built, and a show where
you can buy anything that is imaginable for your rig. I don't think I will be going there every year but it is an experience no RV'er should miss. Plus there is free camping.
Oh, by the way parrots are like any other pet. They need love ,food ,and a place to sleep. Crackers are optional.
