A fews days on BLM Land in Quartzsite AZ
So it costs $40 for up to a 2 week stay or a little more for a long stay. But out in the desert where you camp there is no hookups. Most people are here for the winter and have big setups with Solar and 4x4 toys and compounds.
The town is also full of flea markets which we checked out. There was some interesting stuff and even more interesting people watching.
Eventually we checked out the RV show too and "Solar Bill's" a place many people swear is the best place to get solar installed on your RV.
The best part of the show was "Adult Day Care" which was a beer garden with live music and BBQ.
Nearby there is some good hiking in the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge. In the panorama is a hike we did up to a Palm Canyon.
We also saw mountain sheep way up on a cliff as we were hiking and hungout for a while pointing them out to other hikers.
You can bring home what you find within certain limits. And we did find a bunch of good ones, nothing too big but nice clear ones.
Tools are supposed to be forbidden but you can tell people have been digging and breaking with tools.
I brough a hammer but it wasn't really that much help.
Tucker had a good time running around the mountain for the most part but did have a few run-ins with various cactus spines
Overall the free-isn BLM camping is pretty cool, surprisingly we didn't see any signs of people being jerks which is a surprise.
We was kind of a surprise, we stayed 4 nights longer than we had expected.
