Last Known StatusOpen

This popular winter destination offers hundreds of miles of marked desert roads and trails on BLM land that are open to motorized use. Most trails are wide enough to accomodate large ATVs and UTVs and are mostly hardpacked and rated as mostly easy to moderately challenging. The area is open year-round but the best time to visit is during the fall, winter and early spring months.

The area offers several popular campgrounds which can accomodate large sized RVs. There is no fee charged to camp at most locations but stays are limited to 14 days.

The La Posa Long Term Visitor Area is located a couple miles south of Quartzsite which has a RV disposal and water station plus trash services. A fee is charged to camp here which varys depending on the season. For current rates contact the BLM at (928) 317-3200.
