Over 2 Million Visitors a Year!

Quartzsite, Arizona, barely 18 miles east of the Colorado river, on I-10, may be the RV boondocking capital of the world. Quartzsite has become a mecca to visitors and exhibitors for rocks, gems, mineral specimens and fossils during the town’s famous two-month-long gem show and swap meet every January and February. From its humble beginnings the now-massive Quartzsite show has grown to RV-epic proportions with vendors offering everything under the Quartzsite sun.
Quartzsite Arizona Where the Sun Comes to Play

Known as the “Desert Phenomenon”, Quartzsite is truly the gem of La Paz County.  Situated 125 miles west of Phoenix at the junction of Interstate 10 and U.S. Highway 95, it enjoys a close association with the Colorado River, just 18 miles to the west.

The Sonoran Desert setting, just 879 feet above sea level, holds its own mystique. The surrounding mountains add to the overall appeal, creating a scenic environment that is known for pristine desert views and glorious sunsets. 

2017-18 QVG COVER 2With its unique reputation for catering to travelers, Quartzsite is the ‘destination of choice’ for literally millions of adventurer seekers, as well as the vendors who bring a vast array of treasures from all over the world to sell. Those who come to work obviously enjoy the region’s many offerings as much as the vacationers.


Paving work on the West Quartzsite Traffic Interchange (Exit 17) along Interstate 10 will require closing the east- and westbound ramps overnight this Friday, Sept. 15.  This work was originally scheduled to occur overnight Friday, Sept. 8, but was cancelled because of inclement weather.

Crews are scheduled to place a rubberized-asphalt sealant on all four on- and off-ramps between 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15, and 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 16.  Drivers must use Exit 19 instead.

The work is part of a $2.2 million project that began in April and is scheduled for completion this fall. The project includes widening the existing cross road, extending drainage pipes, installing bridge barrier and lane striping.

Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors.
