We have been going last ten years, heading out Martin Luther King day.There are literally thousands of RV campers I mean thousands.Miles and miles of free desert camping.And maybe one of the largest flea markets in the country.Takes three days to walk it all.Enjoy!

There is also BLM LTVA areas there no hook ups but the fee does get you access to fresh water and dump station and garbage bins.

Lots of different areas around QZ depending how long you intend to be parked. For 14days or less then there is Hi Jolly north of town on 95. Further up is Plomosa Rd. Closer to town there is an area on the east side of 95 south of 10. Also Dome Rock west of town. South of town there is the LTVA's for stays up to 180days (fee payable).

While you will certainly find those covered by the Nomadland book that is not the norm, at least in Quartzsite area. Some of those out boondocking have a rig worth more than many peoples houses. We boondock in various AZ & CA locations during the winter and mix it up with campground stays. Our setup can go about 15-20 days without needing to dump and the solar means no genny running required.

If you want to make sure you find those referenced in Nomadland head to the Slabs.
