I was looking forward to this gathering.  Sometimes health gets in the way.  Hope everyone enjoys the time.

Sorry Jim we will miss you at Quartzsite and Whitetank. Take and get back to traveling real soon!

There is places in town where you can drive through and dump as well fill up your fresh water tank.  We fill up in town and then as well stop in and fill up a portable 5 gallon fresh water tank and top off our water while there.  Then when we leave we dump as heading out.  Yes there are trucks that come around and will fill up your fresh and dump if you are there for a while.  

Looking forward to our trip heading out on January 18th for the long weekend

I read on another site that at Quartzite water delivery and waste water and black water tank services were available. Is this true? 

Thanks for info!

There is at least one area that has those services available.  The one I saw last year was a fee area.  The area we use for the collection does not have that available.  There is a couple places in town that are drive in’s where everything can be found.  The one we use is called The Pit Stop north part of town on 95.

Thanks for the info. Do you travel with water tank full and fill at Quartzite?

Thanks...sorry for all of the questions. First time at Quartzite and boondocking.

that option. One final "dumb" question, do you travel with 

Whatever you are comfortable with the weight full of water, what rig you have and how far you are traveling with access to good water before arriving are just some of the questions you can think about.  The water in Quartzite at the Pit Stop was good and last year cost $4.00 to fill your tank.  There is also metered water to fill jugs last year was 25 cents a gallon or 5 gallons for a buck.  We have traveled both full of fresh and with limited quantities,  we just factor in all the particular variables for each trip.  Your tow vehicle and rig is a big factor.

The Gathering in on BLM land about 2 mi out of Quartzsite. There are a number of business in Quartzsite where you can dump and refill you water, at a small fee. This area is a heaven for Snowbirds this time of the year and many business cater to their needs.

Happy Camping

Hey peeps....

Here for the New Years by the Colorado river. It’s cloudy, 51 and expect to be in the 30’s tonite. Great air quality!  A couple of rigs pulled out and headed back to Florida for warmth....Should be heating up over the next couple of weeks....

We'll be hanging out in that area of AZ for the first 2 weeks of January.  Anyone else be around then?  Our schedule has us heading wayyy east on Hwy 10 about the same time you guys are showing up.

Where are you going to be hanging out in AZ?  What is your southbound route from Oregon?

This will be our first time in Quartzite- where does one get water?

There are places around town where you can buy water, they cater to Snowbird. You can find most everything you need. Hope this helps.

Here's a YouTube video put out by Russ who has RVer TV, he has a lot of video's on and about Quartzsite. This video is of the area where we will be gathering in January. It will show how to get to our area from off ramp 19 of I-10 and then to the BLM area.

Enjoy!

What is "RITV".  How safe is camping in the quatzite area?  Does anyone know if UTV's are available to rent in the area?

Hi Dave & Jerri,

RITV stands for Rally in the Valley. It a rally at White Tank Mountain reginial park near Surprise, AZ. There is a thread in the Rally section of the forum.

The Quartzsite get to gether was started last year for those on their way to the RITV. Just a few extra day of Lance owners camping with other Lance owners.

Quartzsite is a mecca for Snowbirds in the Winter. It's going on the same time as the RITV. It a giant Swap Meet and RV show. And yes it's fairly safe, because it's mainly retired people and we tend to be Non-Violent!

I assume UTV is a form of off road vehicle. I'm not sure if anyone rents UTV. 

Hope this helps

We love camping on the BLM land at Quartzite hope to join the group at that time please send GPS coordinate.  When we go we like to stay at Dome Rock BLM campground.  Very quite and peaceful lots of open space and not far from town.  Free to stay there up to two weeks just have to register with the host and then park anywhere  you want.  The ground is hard pack so you dont have to worry about getting stuck in the sand.  Also there is places in town to get water and depending on how long  you plan to stay you can get your septic tank pumped at your campsite.

 

We will be gathering just SE of town

N33.663742, W114.185732

There is a host for that area but we saw last year that very few actually registered with them.  The area is hard pack.

I am new to this group.  Is this Quartzite AZ?  What are the activities at this event?

Thanks. Dave

Hi Dave.  I am not the coordinator of this event, but I can answer your question.  Yes, it is Quartzsite, AZ.  It is just a gathering of people who are on their way to RITV. it is VERY informal with no activities within the gathering.  It's just Lance people enjoying each other's company.

Hi Dave, the Quartzsite get-to-gether is a group Lance owners that are going to the RITV in January. We are congregating on BLM land for a few days ahead of RITV for the Quartzsite RV show. All Lance owners are welcome, so if you are in the area, feel free to join us.
