Hi artstream, I used to work at a small Calif state recreation area just North of Yuma. On the Colorado river. called Picacho state recreation area. It was/ is surounded by BLM land that is open to dry camping. Very nice looking country with lots of wildlife and oddly enough for the desert very good fishing. Tracker.

So, what do we know about BLM camping in Yuma, and or Quartzside or any other interesting areas

While I can't add any additional info abt the specifics of Yuma or Quartzside..I can offer these links to others sites as you head out that way..


Page 1 - FREE Camping along HIGHWAY 395

This site is maintained by an old friend and, his main thing is FREE or low cost camping.
If you surf the links on the left hand side, you'll see pretty nice locations and photos too..Tell the "Dutch" I send
Good luck and, safe traveling..
I hope this might be of some help for you..

We just returned from the Imperial Dam area today. Jimmini has a good point about the dust, but it was not bad while we were there. If you keep driving on the gravel roads near the north shore area, there are some spots away from the crowds of other RVs there for the winter. If we had more ground clearance, we would have driven all the way to north shore at Senator Wash.
