Quartzite 2015
 
This is our first time at Quartzsite, and we're having a BLAST!! So far ( day 3) we've enjoyed:
1. Quiet.....lots of room, minimal noise, beautiful views & stars at night that are brilliant!
2. Inexpensive......$40 for two weeks is like free. Plus, the money saved can go towards important things, (like #4).
3. Beer Belly's bar (adult day care!). Live music, $3.50 drafts.
4. Sunny, with highs in the low 70's and very warm with the bright sun.
5. The ambiance is terrific, the weather is wonderful and we haven't even seen the RV show!!
Come on down!!!!

Those of us that live in AZ think it is funny that all of the RV's go to the nastiest piece of desert in the state and camp with 2000 of your closest friends (not). There are so many other beautiful paces to stay in AZ.

We were with the Escapees Boondockers group at an isolated spot near Ehrenberg. Elaine wanted to go over to see Quartzite. We did and that was enough for both of us. She was recuperating from a broken right wrist and undergoing PT for 6 weeks before we could head down to Baja (through the Tecate crossing).

Agree with mbridinger, Arizona has so much great BLM land to boondock in solitude.

I totally understand what you mean.

Quartzite isn't about the real estate, its about the camaraderie.

Quartzite Is proof the Rv'ers can have a good time anywhere.
All we need is a little space and each other!

We are planning on going on to Catalina State Park and Patagonia after Quartzsite, but we'll entertain suggestions for quiet, beautiful and inexpensive places in Southern AZ area.

If AZ works for you, have fun.

Maybe you need to come check all of us out in Quartzsite, you said 2000 but it is closer to 200000 people, we are here because we love meeting people of like mind from all over the country. The whole idea of full timing for us is to travel to different places and meet people from everywhere and this is one of the best places to do that. Come and join us just for a day or so and maybe you might change your mind. :cool:

Attendance is way down from previous years. There is still lots of open space. Other than the dust the downside is the 13% sales tax

I was suppose to be there now but it didn't happen but I do plan on going maybe next year.
If there isn't that much too do:o I could always re-wax the old gal maybe even the caddie.I would be very content, just to get out of the cold.

We really like Harshaw Canyon near Patagonia. There are a lot of great dispersed camping spots on the road. Not much traffic except Border Patrol and the birding is excellent.

You will enjoy Patagonia a great park and lake, they just put a new beach in last year. Nice small lake but not too small that's quiet and very enjoyable, the RV area is very nice too enjoy the wooden bridge. Hope you enjoy your stay in AZ and welcome.

Reed: Thanks for the post. We've got our hummingbird feeder and binoculars, and looking forward to being there soon. Are the dispersed camping spots on the road free? Dump stations at the park, I would expect.
