Popular Boondocking Area
Quartzsite, Arizona

Cost: $0.00
Description
There is a lot of free and dirt-cheap camping around Quartzsite, but this area north of town along route 95 is one of the more popular free areas, where stays of up to 14 days are permitted. You will seldom be alone except in the summer, when nobody in their right mind should be here due to the oppressive heat. But from about late-October through mid-March, this area will be home to hundreds of RVs at any one time. January and February are prime time. Just drive in, find a place, and set up camp. If you want shade, park near a saguaro cactus, the best you will do. There are no designated campsites, no services, and lots of dust. I-10 and Quartzsite are about a ten-minute drive away route 95 with all the basics including water, dumps, and many RV parks if you need to hookups. —Chuck Woodbury, RVtravel.com
