Lovely BLM site that was clean and quiet with beautiful views. It is a huge site with plenty of space. You can be as close or far from others as you would like. Though we did stay in December before the crowds get to the area. Host was friendly and helpful. Take a walk around to see some quartz rock creations. This is obviously a well-... more

We pulled in for one night, but we would have stayed here longer! It is beautiful and flat with incredible views. We pulled in and were completely level. We watched the sunset and sunrise from all angles of our spot and it was glorious. There are lots of free places to stay in this area, but this was WONDERFUL! Couldn’t find one piece ... more

Road Runner is a 14 day free BLM camping area. There is a campground host on duty so you'll need to check in. It is south of Quartzite on AZ 96 at 5.9 miles on the west side of the road. You can't miss the road. Very flat, 2 bar Verizon LTE and atfair digital TV.

You can be as close or far away from others as you want. Verizon cell service was fine. Our hotspot had a strong signal. I don't usually check how many bars I have. Beautiful views, definitely a reason I come to the area.

We arrived in Quartzsite torn between staying at Roadrunner or Dome Rock - we opted for Roadrunner due to it's distance from I-10. We pulled in a couple of days before Christmas to find that the campground host (at the front of the campground, just as you turn right from La Paz and 95) was off-duty. During our time there, we never s... more

Staying at Quartzsite was something we had always wanted to do. This time we got our chance! We took a trip to the Phoenix area over New Year's. On the way back we stopped off in Q. We thought about staying at one of the LTVA's but they were a bit too crowded and they also charged. We had heard good things (blogs) about Roadru... more

Roadrunner BLM is relatively scenic, quiet, and level. When we were here in March of 2013, we were able to camp far from other RV's and have a nice amount of privacy. Over the air HDTV was great, (though no NBC) and both AT&T and Verizon also worked great. I list both Verizon 3G and 4G because the cell is 3 and our mifi is 4. ... more
