Arizona Chapter
Quartzsite, Arizona

Mile Marker 99

Again this year, the Arizona Chapter will host this annual rally. RVW members from many chapters come from all across the country and Canada to attend. This is a boondocking rally on BLM land, so fill the fresh water tank and empty the black and gray tanks before you come and join us. Camping is free for up to 14 days.

This rally coincides with the Big Tent Sports Vacation and RV Show opening on Saturday, January 20. Outside the tent, there are more vendors and open-air swap meets and rock and mineral vendors to see. This world famous RV show has everything for the RV enthusiast.

For the adventurous, there are hiking trails and ATV trails to explore. At our rally site, we will have guest RVW member speakers and a good old-fashioned potluck dinner. Come expecting also to enjoy evening campfires, incredible sunrises and the spectacular sunsets that descend each night to put the Sonoran Desert to sleep.

We will not have professional vendors speaking this year at our rally site. Instead, we are inviting RVW members to teach one another. Do you have a special skill or talent? Geocaching, photography, using a smart phone or other electronic device, posting items for sale on E-bay, maintaining your RV, advantages of a motorhome versus a trailer or fifth wheel—these are topics we all are interested in learning more about. So let us know! Identify your area of expertise and plan to share with your peers.

Also, we need a few helpers for each informal event, so please consider helping with something during this busy and fun weekend. Helpers are needed for registration and greeting attendees as they arrive, for our evening potluck and meet and greet gatherings, our Sunday morning grab-and-go breakfast. Help in organizing off-site ATV or Jeep tours, hiking or geocaching adventures or morning dog walks also would be appreciated.

Again this year at Quartzsite, we will have an opportunity at Celia’s Rainbow Gardens to honor RVW members who have passed on at the RVW memorial site. If there is someone you wish to honor, contact Vicki Para at vickipara@yahoo.com with your request to purchase a plaque for $6.

If you would like to help out or want to join us, contact rally host Jan Miller at janbouldercity@aol.com

Directions: From I-10, take U.S. 95 south past mile marker 99, turn west onto La Paz Road (paved road) and make an immediate turn right onto a dirt road. Sign in at the BLM post/trailer on the right. Continue on the hard-packed road (okay for rigs) for approximately one mile. Follow the RVW signs. Our camping area is just past the Beaver RV group site.
