“Desert Camping at its finest ”

Reviewed May 01, 2019

Overall Rating

Limited stay this year due to the exceptionally cold winter. Everyone spreads out so can be as solitude as desired. Town of Bouse has everything needed - County Park has dump station and fresh water for very reasonable prices; there are water filling kiosks and propane at local RV park. A produce truck comes every Thursday and Friday w... more

“Nice quiet spot in the Arizona desert”

Reviewed Feb 27, 2019

Overall Rating

Moved up to the hills outside of Bouse (33.841948, -114.042016) to get away from the mass of snowbirds in Quartzsite and check out a new spot. Lots more space to spread out here. Tiny little town is well set up for RVers and has many of the essentials you might need. 30 minutes to Parker for anything else. Bouse Fisherman Intaglio near... more

“Plenty of room. Excellent sites.”

Reviewed Mar 21, 2018

Overall Rating

I stayed here the first two weeks of March. I came prepared to drive right past if it was still busy from the winter crowds, but I was surprised to find that most people had left. The first week, there was an RV every 100 yards (and the generator and outdoor TV/music noise was annoying), but by the second week, it was almost deserted. ... more

“Quartzite boondocking 101 ”

Reviewed Mar 04, 2018

Overall Rating

If you're headed to quartzite, capable of boondocking and have no clue where to stay once you get here look no further. Plomosa Rd is so big, easy to use for any rig, camping with friends or just want your own private slice of the desert you will find it here. It's a little drive into town but not bad. Best part is its free. We stayed ... more

“Not Much to Add...Great Place!”

Reviewed Feb 20, 2018

Overall Rating

Great spot! Lot's of space to spread out. It would be hard not to find a level place to park. The roads in, at least out around mile marker 2, are a bit rough. But there is plenty of places to park nearer Plomosa Road. Scout ahead! That's about the only bad thing we could say. And you can't beat the sunsets either. We'll be back!

“No Frills BLM camping”

Reviewed Jan 20, 2018

Overall Rating

This is your typical no-frills BLM camping area. This is a huge area so there is room to spread out some. We're here for the RV show and are totally amazed at just how many RV'ers are within a 10-mile radius of Quartzsite. This area is a flat rocky area which keeps the dust to a minimum. As the other campers have stated: the sunsets an... more
