47 RV Parks near Quartzsite, Arizona

Arrived to a friendly staff. The great thing about this park is the location. Right on the river, lots of grass behind the river spots (I always stay on the river front spots). Very quiet park (except for the freeway nearby, but it is like white noise so its okay). I love the sound of jet boats in the morning and the sound of Arizona birds will charm your soul. The park manager (forgot his name but I think it is Mark) stopped by to welcome us and chat, I thought that was very cool. He is a very nice man. This has become our go to place on the river. I get a little concerned about the cost but this is the perfect location if you want to be on the river in a upscale R.V campground in Arizona. Perfect for Kids too. Very relaxing park. The kids would enjoy the "man made" kiddy swim area on the rivers shore. Pool, Jacuzzi and club house are very nice. Very interesting "Boot hill" across the street. Quartzsite is pretty close. - chaparral

This is our 2nd stay here and it was just as hot and dusty as we remembered. Sites and the interior roads are all dusty gravel. Any vehicle going by stirs up a cloud of dust as does the wind. Power pole (and water hook-up as well) are at the front of each site. Not convenient when most rigs have the hook-up toward the back. In our case we had put the nose of the fifth wheel right on the road. Even then our power cord barely reached. Sewer connection at least is somewhat closer to the middle of the site, but still a long run from our rig. There are trees scattered throughout the park, but they don't seem to provide a big amount of shade. Office staff are friendly and helpful. It would be helpful if there was someone to lead you to your site. Roads and marking are somewhat confusing. Big upside of the park is that it sits right beside the Colorado River. Downside is the boat noise. So if you're not a boat family, it's probably not a park where you'd want to stay more than just overnight. At least, that's our feeling. We do stay overnight simply because it's a handy stopping spot to and from our way south in the fall and spring. - boardman

The park is located on the Colorado river. Close to I-10 but little noise as it sits down a hill. The roads are gravel as are the sites. The sites are average width and all the services worked fine. It is a winter destination park. Thought the price was a little high for this park. We were here overnight. The Office is located at the top of a hill then to enterthe park you go down a steep hill plenty of room to maneuver but it is a pull coming out. We would stay again if in the area. - JDR

we stayed spring 2016 and found the park tp be clean with level sites. The staff was friendly and helpful with information about the area. Enjoyed using the clubhouse nice reading area for guests or to watch tv. We would definitely return to this park - Crafty Lady

Not a bad park, for Quartzsite... large staggered spaces. All gravel. Small restroom but very clean. Some sites only have 30amp. No cable, wifi was spotty. Very nice folks run the place. - Tredguy
Dec 2018 - $32.00
Stayed here during off season,we were the only travelers in the park. Park is going through some up grades for the new season, pool was not finished. All hook ups were fine, no cable for us. Laundry was great, did not look at rec room. Once we checked in never saw the staff again, but that was OK we did not need them. - Donny and Donna

Stayed three nights for the Big Tent RV Show. All gravel and DG but level sites. 50A service and sewer hook-up. Plenty of room to park the toad next to the MH. No tables or barbecues at the sites. Rather barren and close together sites but a bargain being close to all the action. Would definitely stay here again. - Scott Baker
Jan 2018 - $45.00
This park is located close to everything. The lot that was originally booked was occupied. The next site offered was not big rig friendly. The 3site was big rig friendly. The site was not totally level, but close enough that there wasn't any issues. All the sites were gravel with full hookups. There was free WiFi provide, but the office didn't provide the code and I just forgot to ask. Cell service was slow, but the town was packed with people. We had to pre-pay for our site more than 6 months ahead of time. There is a manager on site. No dog park. A sign indicated live music except for the period I was staying. - bikenorth51

Friendly staff. We felt secure and the park was quiet, which was great because of the busy RV show. We liked being close to town and having full hookups. Made reservations for 2020. We were there for the RV show so plenty going on during the day. Not much in the area as far as restaurants or entertainment. Very small town. - dpendleton51

Very quiet park. We've stayed at two others in town and this is our second favorite. We didn't use facilities but they do have a laundry room. - 1Rusty_Spur-and-Suzy Q
Dec 2018 - $19.00
Lots of activities going on. We were there for a week and attended movie night and a bluegrass jam session. We wanted a quiet park and we found one. It's far enough away from the main roads to have silent nights, and Quartzsite is so small you can be anywhere in town in 10 minutes. Very nice and inexpensive laundry facilities. There is no pool, but the temperatures don't get high enough in the winter to use one anyway. We felt so at home in Quartzsite and at this park, we made reservations to stay here from December through March next year. - SMHopkins

We stayed at 88 Shades for a month in March 2018, and felt at home right away. We loved 88 Shades from the beginning, so much so, that we decided to stay there for six months during the 2018/19 season. We got to Quartzsite in November 2018, and my husband and I both felt at home from the moment we got there. They've got lots of activities for anyone who would like to participate in, specifically, for me, it was the Jam Session on Mondays, and Karaoke on Sunday nights that were the highlights of my week. We were so happy there we didn't want to leave to go back to the North. The proprietor of 88 Shades is a very caring person, who listens to what residents, both short and long term, have to say. He makes sure that we are all taken care of, listens to what we have to say, and always makes sure that any concerns are dealt with immediately. He's very quick to make sure that everyone is happy, which must be difficult sometimes, as there are over one hundred sites at 88 Shades. Overall, I would give 88 Shades a 9.8 out of 10 in all categories. I don't believe that you will be disappointed whether you stay there for a week, or six months like we did. Thanks so much for taking care of us for six months! If you're going to Quartzsite, be prepared to have lots of fun. the people are great, the town is wonderful. we love it, going back for six months in the 19/20 season as well. - Myhrr

I stayed at this park for two months in winter of 2019. I was placed on the southern zone, close to the I-10. There's a lot of traffic on this interstate, it's non-stop, day and night, so constant back ground noise. Very annoying for my liking. My biggest disappointment is the electric bill. Their meter doesn't work right!! They charged me around $45/month, when other parks I was in were about $17/month. I got a tiny trailer, single guy, no hot water tank, I use my solar during daytime. Plus my neighbor was charged around $27/month, with a big 5th wheel trailer, hot water tank, A/C, the whole deal!! So if those aren't proofs something's wrong with my meter... I complained, but I got told those are meter readings, so that's it. Also, they charge $3 for the monthly reading!! I don't know if that practice is common, but that's just a ridiculous fee to top it all. Wi-Fi is very lame, frustrating. There's a pressure machine to wash your car/rv, but it's not working. Seems to be that way for a long time. The restrooms aren't that clean. The showers were not that appealing, with a stinky moldy curtain. On the other end, laundry room has nice prices. There are several citrus trees on the premises (I enjoyed a lot) and they recycle cans, bottles and cardboard. So three good things I appreciated. Notice that most of the clients have permanent set ups, so it's not a traveling crowd. One neighbor had 2 small dogs constantly barking at everything that moves. I won't go back for sure. - Dark Rider

Friendly nice office associates. Very inexpensive if you stay for a month. Park needs updating. WiFi poor at best. Electric costs if you stay monthly. Cost us $113 - we stayed 3 weeks (suppose to be month). Verizon didn't not work very well at our site. Very friendly people there. Very tight but manageable if you can handle your rig. - JohnAprilKal326

What a pleasant surprise to find such beautiful and peaceful boondocking site so close to Quartzsite. There are plenty of spots to accommodate any size rig. The road from the highway is well marked, graded, and not too washboardy. We picked a site about a half mile into the NWR and could see (just barely) only two other rigs from our camp. Be aware that after you enter the NWR you must park your rig no more than 100 feet from the road. Before entering the NWR, while on BLM land, you may park up to 300 feet from the road. Watch out for all the cacti - especially the cholla! There is a tent camping site at the turnaround at the end of the road where the trail head for Palm Canyon is located, but it's situated in a wash which seems ill advised. The NWR brochure states that overnight parking is allowed at the trail head parking lot, but I don't know whether or not this means you could park your RV there. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets from this site and enjoyed hiking up Palm Canyon to see the rare California fan palms. This is free camping at its best. - BruceandKathyWA

I just spent 11 days in the Kofa Wildlife Refuge and it's as beautiful as any high desert landscape you've ever seen. Granted, that type of landscape is a bit of an acquired taste, but once you embrace its beauty it sticks with you.
The Palm Canyon Road entrance is just north of mile marker 85 on the east side of Hwy 95, about 25 miles or so south of Quartzsite. The road in was a little washboardy but very manageable. They do see flash floods from time to time, and the road shows some evidence of rutting from previous floods, but it's wide enough to maneuver around the problem spots even in my 43' rig towing a car.
One issue is ground clearance: on the road in it's not an issue at all, but when they grade the road they leave a berm of gravelly debris along the sides which creates a curb that many if not most RV's and Travel Trailers would find difficult or impossible to get over. This unfortunately blocks access to what would otherwise be some pretty nice campsites for larger rigs, though smaller setups might be able to take advantage of them.
During my stay there were only a few other campers out there, mostly in travel trailers, so we all had thousands of yards between us to call our own. There was some very light day-use traffic and the occasional hunters / shooters whizzing by on quad-runners, but the dust they kick up dissipates very quickly due to the almost constant breeze.
It's beautiful, quiet and isolated... and expansive. The sunsets are magnificent and the hiking is as easy or as hard as you want it to be: The flat plains are perfect for long evening walks, and the mountains / canyons at day-use area at the foot of the mountains are a bit more challenging.
There's a park host for any questions you may have, but really you just find a spot and park. It's boondocking at its best, and it's absolutely free. It really doesn't get much easier than this. - Wryly Blithe

Kofa National Wildlife Refuge sits off Highways 10 and 95 near Quartzsite. Excellent dry camping - not another soul there when we were there - we drove in off Highway 10. I understand the entrance off Highway 95 is the more popular and probably more crowded. Lots of cacti in a high desert landscape. Be careful of where you walk your dogs because of the cacti. Vehicles with low clearance could have problems on the gravel/dirt roads but we were fine in our 24' class C. You can camp anywhere within 100' of any road. Wilderness at its best. - casasf

Small but well maintained RV park. Wide spots. Level gravel sites, FHU-50. Pull-thru's and back-ins. No cable (as we saw for many Quartsite RV parks). Quiet. Good internal roads. Only couple of channels available on antenna. Would stay here again. - DrM Traveler

They do not allow pets, so we had to turn around and leave instead of checking in and camping. If you have pets, please be sure to stay somewhere else. Management is nice and the place looks OK - mostly permanent residents with neatly kept model homes or RVs, and a few short term spots. If you don't have a pet, this is probably a pleasant place to camp. - Vasili

I read every review here and I have something to say. I have stayed at this park three years straight. I have seen all sorts of people come and go from it, from the very poor who the staff would do anything in their power to help to the very wealthy who the staff bends over backward to accommodate. There are potlucks, free coffee, and even musical guests at times. All put together by the staff for free just to make people feel welcome. It doesn't have amazing amenities like people seem to demand. The essentials are there, CLEAN water (it's the only place in the entire town with well water rather than city water with God knows what in it,) electric, sewer and dump. The sites are very spacious, I stay in a 31 foot class c and even also had room to set up a ten by twenty foot out door room next to my rig. It's an older place but it isn't crumbling and falling apart like so many claim. The staff literally works seven days a week to do everything they can to maintain the place in addition to feeding and even clothing some who are in desperate need. There aren't cigarette butts everywhere like one person states, there are ashtrays in designated smoking areas and there are also areas designated with no smoking signs as well. The WiFi isn't that bad like people are saying either. They just can't stand the fact that other people are trying to use it as well. Also in January and February pretty much no where in the entire town has WiFi due to so many trying to use it at once. Remember this is a town that goes from a few thousand to over a million almost instantly, for two months of the year. Some of the folks leaving reviews need to calm down. It's an RV Park, literally out in the middle of nowhere in a giant desert. What exactly are you expecting? The Ritz??? The staff there are friendly and work their tales off to become friends with everyone who visits. You might find something you like better somewhere else and you might not. But you'll never find staff as kind or friendly. - The RV Dude

Park is dirty with cigarette butts everywhere and people smoking in the main camp area. Shower walls were crumbling and decided to use our own instead. Maintenance man said the strong smell of bleach in the water is because they add it to the tank for the bacteria. Had to drain my tanks when I left. Lots of lights there but did not feel safe. - AbbyG

Rate reflects monthly discount. We booked and paid nearly a year in advance. Upon arrival we were given our assigned space and went to check it out. The park was pretty empty. It's mostly the parking lot type of RV park with few trees. Unfortunately one of the trees was directly at the entrance of our site. There was no way for us to get in and out of the site without damaging our rig. Since there were tons of empty spots in the campground, we asked to be moved to one that wouldn't wreck our home. With much grumbling about how we should be able to fit without hitting the tree "too much", they agreed to move us to another site, with the understanding that we could not be accommodated in the park during one of our weeks if we didn't go into the site they originally assigned us. Given the choice to wreck our rig or move out during the RV show without refund, we chose the move out. While this park is clean, don't be fooled by the advertising. The wifi is not usable whatsoever. The potlucks are not potlucks; it's more like a soup kitchen for the sweet people who live in tents in this park. The residents and workampers were very kind. We would never camp here again. - ppalmer21

This was our 8th time. As mentioned by others it is still $40 for 2 weeks, the Volunteer staff are friendly, there is lots of room and areas where you can avoid the ATV's dust. This is not glam-ping it is camping. We stayed for only 1 week so therefore about $6/nt. Lots of firewood for sale so build your own fire pit and enjoy. We will be back next year. - KDSpree

This is camp in the desert. Some trash cans in area and a few porta potties. Dump station and water at Las Posas South but not at Tyson Wash. Be prepared to wait an hour or more to use dump station during Jan-Feb. Park wherever you want but most people try to space out sites by 50 yards or more due to generator noise. A lot of dust from off road vehicles. Ground is hard packed gravel, lava base and will support any size rig. Watch out for big dips in some roads. Easiest way to find a site is to use tow car to scout out location. Beautiful sunsets and starry skies--very peaceful. Tons of stuff to do in Quartszite in the prime season Jan-Feb-early March. $40.00 for 2 week stay-pay at BLM entrance station at each LTVA (long term visitor area). The further you go on Hwy 95 north or south of town the less crowded it is. Tyson wash is south of town about 3 miles. - clint77

To start with boondocking is not our choice in camping. We were with a group of 5 other rigs and got a very secluded spot about 3 miles off the highway over a rough dirt path. There were plenty of available camping sites for multiple rigs closer to the road but you would have to eat the dust from those of us that camped further away. BLM charges $40 for 1 to 14 days. We stayed 3 (which was more than enough). They only accept check or exact change in cash (my $100 bill was not acceptable). A credit card machine would make the whole check-in process much faster and more secure. The people working the desk were not friendly or helpful.
A generator is a necessity. Between the dust and our campfire smoke a shower is necessary every day which leads to packing up your rig and go waiting in a long line to dump and fill up with water every few days.
We can now cross "going to the Quartzsite RV Show" off our bucket list. We will not be back. - lyzzards

Never been to a RV park that did not have restrooms (plumbed or not). Very nice staff camphost with organized activities for the park campers. This park reminded me of boon docking with FHU's and several snowbirds. The park is 6 miles south of Quartzsite and very quiet. - boomerlee

No frills, very nice RV Park a good distance away from the craziness of Quartzsite. A quite place to relax after a day of hiking or sightseeing. The managers are extremely nice and will do what they can for you. We will be returning (next week) we liked it so much. Good water, clean power, good cell phone (Verizon and AT&T) service. Don't expect a spa - do expect a pleasant, friendly stay. - Julie and Ray
