A recreation permit is required at Midland Long Term Visitor Area (LTVA) September 15th - April 15th. A long term LTVA permit is $180 for the entire season. A short visit LTVA permit is $40 for 14 consecutive days from date of purchase. Camping is allowed during the off-season between April 16th - September 14th at no cost, but the standard 14-day limit for dispersed camping on BLM land applies.

A nice surprise!
We were staying at Tyson Wash LTVA BLM area just south of Quartzsite AZ and were in the town of Blythe CA on New Years eve to pick up a few supplies.
We decided to take a look at Midland LTVA area because Tyson Wash was getting busy and busier every day.
As mentioned in the Campendium overview of the area, the fee is $40 for 14 days, or $180 for Sept 15 to April 15th.
The nice part about the fee is that once you pay the fee for the six month period, you are entitled to camp at any of the 7 BLM LTVA locations; Hot Spring, Tamarisk, Pilot Knob, Mule Mountain, Midland, La Posa, and Imperial, they are all included in the same fee.
Midland LTVA is mostly flat and level. Very easy access, supports any size rig, nice mountain views, beautiful sunrises and sunsets. It is now early January, probably the height of snowbird season, and I'd estimate there are only 20 RV units here. I suspect Midland LTVA could support 100 or more RV units.
The only downside, on weekdays there are many trucks going up and down Midland Road to a waste management site, you can only 'just' hear them, but there is a bit of noise for the campers who are looking for total peace and quiet.
There are trash bins on site, a dumping station (with NO water) and a landline pay phone. The camp host provides a list of locations where fresh water is available.
Lots of trails for ATVs and hiking. The town of Blythe is only 10 minutes away and has most of the common needs. Several grocery stores, a hardware store, restaurants (both fast food and sit down types) gas stations, Dollar General, Tire stores and laundry facilities. However, I'd recommend you take the short drive to AZ for gas, you will save $1.00 per gallon.
Highly recommend Midland LTVA BLM!
