Friday, October 12, 2018

Alt Names

Quartzsite, Hi Jolly Campground, Dome Rock Campground, Sugarloaf Peak, La Cholla Mountain, Middle Camp Mountain, Scaddan Wash Campground, Sonoran Desert, Plomosa Road Campground

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 even the widest ATVs and UTVs, plus the terrain is generally hard packed and rated as mostly easy. The trails are marked and many form long loops that lead to abandoned mines, cabins, mills and scenic overlooks.

The trails are open year-round but summer months are extremely hot, making daytime temps reach over 100F. The nearby town of Quartzsite offers numerous RV campgrounds, restaurants, laundromats, grocery stores and gasoline stations.

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

The area also has four long term visitor areas (LTVA's) located on BLM land that caters to campers who want to stay for a longer period of time. All four areas are located south of Quartzsite off Hwy 95 (La Posa West, La Posa North, La Posa Tyson Wash and La Posa South). There are no services at the north, west or Tyson Wash LTVA's except for garbage removal but La Posa South offers an RV disposal station, water spigots (non-potable) plus five large garbage dumpsters. A permit is required to use the services and camp at any of the LTVA's here which can be purchased online or onsite. Permits are available for 14 days or seasonal (September 15 through April 15).
