Clicking these pics might help you find a boondocking spot in Quartzsite Arizona.
Someone asked me, "how do I find a place to boondock in Quartzsite Arizona?" And I decided to make a quick and simple blog post on the subject, and here it is.
Getting off Interstate 10 in Quartzsite, there's 2 exits, if you don't count the one several miles west of town. Get on any two-lane blacktop in Quartzsite and drive around until you see a Jeep trail heading off into the desert. Most of them will look something like this picture.
Sometimes these trails are hard to spot, and sometimes they will be marked by people tying ribbons to the bushes or piles of rocks at the turn off. They can be on the left or the right, and if you're unfamiliar with the area you should scout the area in your vehicle before you pull a big trailer or large class "A" down the trail.
These trails can go for miles and usually the only problem you will come to will be a dry wash where the sand is kind of deep, but that's not very common.
If you see a line of trees that look like this, their growing next to a dry wash. This particular dry wash is so small that without the trees you wouldn't even know it was there.
When you get to a place that looks something like this, just keep going, don't stop. This area will sometimes be infested with barking dogs, noisy generators, and OPM, "Other People's Music ".
If you think you might not be able to make it down Jeep trails like that, keep in mind this guy made it down that very same trail without a problem.
Now when you get to a spot that looks like this, you have found your home. And even though it's loaded with peace and quiet, it's still only a mile from a paved road, so you don't have to beat your vehicle to death driving a washboard road for twenty miles. And it's only three or four miles into town.... You're out in the sticks, but close to civilization.... My kinda place.
Now if the spot you've found has one of these ancient Indian fire rings in it, all the better. This is a sign that some of the first human beings living in Arizona had camped here previously and this is a known good camping spot.
But if any ancient Indians come around, wanting their spot back, its best to back away quietly and go somewhere else or they might cancel your Bluewater casino players club card.
Now that you've found your perfect boondocking spot in Quartzsite, you can settle down for a restful night, and fall asleep listening to the coyotes singing in the distance.... Coyotes are the only dog that I don't mind listening to and they will almost always put me to sleep with their barking and howling.
