Not a bad park, for Quartzsite... large staggered spaces. All gravel. Small restroom but very clean. Some sites only have 30amp. No cable, wifi was spotty. Very nice folks run the place. - Tredguy

Not much here but the basics, but those basics are provided with grace and style. There are lots of permanent rigs, but enough empty sites to accommodate travelers. Very basic. No picnic tables at sites. One single-person restroom with shower. Immaculate. Very nice host and hostess. There is a laundry room and a library/sitting room in central building with that one restroom. Great for an overnight stop, or even longer, if your intention is to be out in Quartzsite during the season. If we're traveling through again, this would be our first choice. This place doesn't seem to be in Woodalls. I haven't a clue how I found it. I may have just picked it off Google Maps. I'm giving it a 7 rating, not because it has lots of features, but because it does exactly what is needed, with no issues or problems. - Ed Greenberg

Pros: Spacious sites with large patio area, clean bathroom & showers, exceptionally friendly managers and staff, planned activities (jam sessions, card games, crafts). Cons: sites are dirt, roads are gravel = tons of dust. The nearest supermarket in Blythe (24 miles). Escapees 15% discount reflected in price. - Jayhart

Great place for overnight stay. In the winter they have a lot of snowbirds. The sites are level and are fairly wide. No one is in the office; you can't call ahead, but there is a care taker that will help when you arrive. Full hookups, some pull-throughs, most back-in. They allow pets and at the back of park is a nice area for walking. We have stayed here before and will come back again! - hapicamper

Rate is based (kind of) on a monthly rate. We loved this park. We had a huge site. There are lots of friendly people with planned activities. Verizon and AT&T worked just fine. The location is perfect in the little town, and you can ride your ATVs directly from the park. It's very nice, and we would definitely return. - Wanderin

If you're going to Quartzsite we recommend you stay at 88 Shades RV Park. We stayed 1 month in a 30' C-Class. $275.00 + .18kwh. Based on another review; because it was a pull through; we originally reserved site #94. Site #94 faces North to South and the HOT desert sun blasted us broadside all day long. On the 2nd day one of the friendly maintenance men; showed us to site D2, a back in facing East to West with a beautiful orange tree shading the back of our rig. 88 Shades offers plenty of activities. From a once a month pot luck lunch to a weekly evening campfire with hotdogs, smores and live entertainment. There is a karaoke night, a sing-a-long night, bingo night and more. There is even a free to use; almost regulation size professional pool table located in it's own building. 88 Shades is also with walking / bicycling distance of gem stores; monuments and museums. The most pleasant part about staying at 88 Shades RV Park were the people. The 20 or so permanent residents; the employees and the owner of the park made our stay very enjoyable. Do want to add this about the temperature in Quartzsite, AZ in May; 107 degrees 21 days in a row. There is a saying that the heat in Arizona is a dry heat and doesn't affect You the same way. You roast a turkey in dry heat. Bring plenty of water and be sure Your A/C is working. - PatsysTravels

I'm a retired, 8-year, full timer. Solo. Longest stay was one year in Oregon. Been in many parks, from Walmart, CCC camps, city parks, BLM, state parks, anywhere from one night to two months. In short, seen a lot of RV parks of all stripes. 88 Shades is, hands down, the best place I've parked my 22-foot Minnie Winnie. Whether you need a place for one night, or the rest of your life, it offers the most amenities, and the most professional and polite staff you will find anywhere. Though not a "seniors only" park, most of the residents are mature, friendly, and helpful-- most of the population of Quartzsite fit the same description. Two shower facilities, and a hot tub in one. An open area next to the "hot tub" house serves as a gathering for many cookout activities. An onsite lapidary shop opens in the busy season, and there I learned to take a rock and turn it into a set of ear rings on my first day there. Office staff are all calm and friendly and will suggest the many activities from free movies and popcorn, to a weekly game of Texas Hold'em (three dollar, one-time buy in and a great way to meet people and try for the big money that can run up to twenty dollars, ha). Quartzsite maintains its own unique character, and 88 Shades will provide all the info you need to amaze yourself. The spots are spacious and well maintained, AND, 88 Shades is one of the only two parks in the region that offer cable tv in the price. The WIFI is dependable and bandwidth good to excellent for Netflix and web browsing. Made up mainly of restaurants (including two or three of your favorite fast foods), RV related businesses, and RV parks. The nearby towns of Parker, and Blythe offer the bigger stores like Walmart, Autozones, and Smart and Final Iris to name a few. 88 Shades is safe, owner and staff are always on point to make that happen. So, if you plan a trip to Quartzsite, 88 Shades is the best deal with the best pricing you will find. - Hal61

Rate reflects monthly discount. We booked and paid nearly a year in advance. Upon arrival we were given our assigned space and went to check it out. The park was pretty empty. It's mostly the parking lot type of RV park with few trees. Unfortunately one of the trees was directly at the entrance of our site. There was no way for us to get in and out of the site without damaging our rig. Since there were tons of empty spots in the campground, we asked to be moved to one that wouldn't wreck our home. With much grumbling about how we should be able to fit without hitting the tree "too much", they agreed to move us to another site, with the understanding that we could not be accommodated in the park during one of our weeks if we didn't go into the site they originally assigned us. Given the choice to wreck our rig or move out during the RV show without refund, we chose the move out. While this park is clean, don't be fooled by the advertising. The wifi is not usable whatsoever. The potlucks are not potlucks; it's more like a soup kitchen for the sweet people who live in tents in this park. The residents and workampers were very kind. We would never camp here again. - ppalmer21

This was the worst place we have ever stayed! The facilities are run-down and mediocre. The wi-fi only works if you are right under the tower, and does not work all over the campground. (false advertising) I tried to use the washing machine, carefully following the directions, and it wouldn't start. I went to the office and the woman there was furious because I didn't know there was some goofy trick to jiggling the door. She became even more upset when I pointed to the directions on the machine, which did not mention the trick door. The restroom toilets and sinks were okay, but the shower floors looked cruddy. Worst of all, the entire campground is littered with broken pieces of concrete tire stops, which are used to separate the campsites. I tripped and fell over one of them in the dark and dislocated and fractured three bones in my ankle, which eventually required surgery with plates and screws, and months to recover. Immediately after falling, I went to the emergency room, then we came back to camp to pack up and leave. I phoned the office and told the obnoxious woman who answered the phone what had happened. I suggested they remove the trip and fall hazards, and she rudely refused to consider the suggestion. I told her we now have to leave a day early and asked if they could at least do the decent thing and refund the money for the unused day, and she said no; there are no refunds. Even if a guest is seriously injured. This place is DANGEROUS and the management has a callous disregard for guests safety. I will NEVER go to Quartzsite again, unless it is to sue B10 Campground. - DMarilynB

Had a great 4 days here and would have stayed longer except for being booked ahead elsewhere. Sites are wide with nice sized concrete patios. Our site had afternoon shade from a willow type tree. Restrooms 2 showers, laundry all clean and grounds well kept. Well maintained park models mixed in with RV sites but all nicely kept. Management and people here very friendly. Great wifi, some channels on antenna tv. Close to town. Not busy end of March but they say book ahead for winter months. - Darleen

Good spot for an overnight stay. Easy access from the highway but far enough away so there is no traffic noise. Site was a dead level pull through with a nice concrete patio. Good laundry and large private shower. No pool and no pets allowed. - Wind blows

I just spent 11 days in the Kofa Wildlife Refuge and it's as beautiful as any high desert landscape you've ever seen. Granted, that type of landscape is a bit of an acquired taste, but once you embrace its beauty it sticks with you.
The Palm Canyon Road entrance is just north of mile marker 85 on the east side of Hwy 95, about 25 miles or so south of Quartzsite. The road in was a little washboardy but very manageable. They do see flash floods from time to time, and the road shows some evidence of rutting from previous floods, but it's wide enough to maneuver around the problem spots even in my 43' rig towing a car.
One issue is ground clearance: on the road in it's not an issue at all, but when they grade the road they leave a berm of gravelly debris along the sides which creates a curb that many if not most RV's and Travel Trailers would find difficult or impossible to get over. This unfortunately blocks access to what would otherwise be some pretty nice campsites for larger rigs, though smaller setups might be able to take advantage of them.
During my stay there were only a few other campers out there, mostly in travel trailers, so we all had thousands of yards between us to call our own. There was some very light day-use traffic and the occasional hunters / shooters whizzing by on quad-runners, but the dust they kick up dissipates very quickly due to the almost constant breeze.
It's beautiful, quiet and isolated... and expansive. The sunsets are magnificent and the hiking is as easy or as hard as you want it to be: The flat plains are perfect for long evening walks, and the mountains / canyons at day-use area at the foot of the mountains are a bit more challenging.
There's a park host for any questions you may have, but really you just find a spot and park. It's boondocking at its best, and it's absolutely free. It really doesn't get much easier than this. - Wryly Blithe

Kofa National Wildlife Refuge sits off Highways 10 and 95 near Quartzsite. Excellent dry camping - not another soul there when we were there - we drove in off Highway 10. I understand the entrance off Highway 95 is the more popular and probably more crowded. Lots of cacti in a high desert landscape. Be careful of where you walk your dogs because of the cacti. Vehicles with low clearance could have problems on the gravel/dirt roads but we were fine in our 24' class C. You can camp anywhere within 100' of any road. Wilderness at its best. - casasf

This is camp in the desert. Some trash cans in area and a few porta potties. Dump station and water at Las Posas South but not at Tyson Wash. Be prepared to wait an hour or more to use dump station during Jan-Feb. Park wherever you want but most people try to space out sites by 50 yards or more due to generator noise. A lot of dust from off road vehicles. Ground is hard packed gravel, lava base and will support any size rig. Watch out for big dips in some roads. Easiest way to find a site is to use tow car to scout out location. Beautiful sunsets and starry skies--very peaceful. Tons of stuff to do in Quartszite in the prime season Jan-Feb-early March. $40.00 for 2 week stay-pay at BLM entrance station at each LTVA (long term visitor area). The further you go on Hwy 95 north or south of town the less crowded it is. Tyson wash is south of town about 3 miles. - clint77

To start with boondocking is not our choice in camping. We were with a group of 5 other rigs and got a very secluded spot about 3 miles off the highway over a rough dirt path. There were plenty of available camping sites for multiple rigs closer to the road but you would have to eat the dust from those of us that camped further away. BLM charges $40 for 1 to 14 days. We stayed 3 (which was more than enough). They only accept check or exact change in cash (my $100 bill was not acceptable). A credit card machine would make the whole check-in process much faster and more secure. The people working the desk were not friendly or helpful.
A generator is a necessity. Between the dust and our campfire smoke a shower is necessary every day which leads to packing up your rig and go waiting in a long line to dump and fill up with water every few days.
We can now cross "going to the Quartzsite RV Show" off our bucket list. We will not be back. - lyzzards

We stayed at La Posa South with a group of a dozen other RVs during the Quartzsite RV show. It's hard to decide on a numeric rating for this because it's just a giant patch of desert, not really a campground! Pros: lots of space to choose from, and even during the big RV show we had plenty of room around us and didn't feel crowded. Great views, great sunsets, and a short drive to town. 8 water filling stations means there's not much of a wait to fill your tank. Cons: lots of dust whenever someone drives by, the ground is all large gravel/rocks which was quite hard on our dogs' paws, and there are only two sewer dumps to handle the thousands of RVers during the RV show which means you could wait in line for hours to dump. We opted to "take it with us" to our next destination. It's $40 for up to two weeks, and we were there for 4 nights, thus our $10/night calculated rate. - LifeRebooted

We were looking for a place to stay for the last 10 days of December and January. There are a lot of RV spaces available in Quartzsite this year, Pattie's had a great rate ($185 for the month), a superb rate compared to what some of the other places quoted us for a gravel pad with hook-ups. There are no restrooms or showers. The people are friendly, the sites are large enough, there is a laundromat and propane sales on site. Right across the street is the Quartzsite General Store and the Redbox. Bread, milk, fresh meat and movies are just a short walk away. The main sales area is about a 20 minute walk away. The Wi-Fi comes and goes at times, but is mostly there and it is strong enough to watch a video. As a place to park an RV with hook ups close to the Quartzsite "action"; Pattie's RV Park has what's needed. - becida

We stayed monthly. The first month was $225, then it went down to $175 with electricity at 19 cents kwh. The park is probably half long term and half transit. We had no complaints about the park except for the water pressure would vary from low to high. The Wi-Fi was excellent: never had a problem with reception or staying on. There is a laundry in the front of the park, but is also open to people outside the park. Everyone was nice from the manager to the residents, including long term folks. If we ever go back to Quartzsite, we would be open to staying here again. - rvgrandma

Stayed four nights at Quartzsite. Mgrs. and asst. mgrs. on check in were very nice and helpful. The park is very clean with large, level gravel spaces. Very quiet day & night. We have a 40ft. Country Coach and were assigned a 30 amp space. 50 amp were all taken. During the first night, the coach decided that it would not accept the power. The auto-gen started the generator. Seven minutes later the mgr. Bill, showed up to say that no gens allowed. He and his wife went out of their way to move us over behind their fifth wheel as the park was full, so that we could remain at the park. It is night time and raining. They had us hook up to their 50 amp power as they went onto their propane for our stay. This level of kindness is hard to find. My rating--A Plus !!!! - lsmith

The hosts the evening were very nice and friendly. It was Thanksgiving and we did not feel like we were infringing on them at all.
We did have a problem the following morning. The park rules were given to us on a very glossy ad type piece of paper. The fine print at the top in very small font contained the rules. We being novices at rv parks did not know that rinsing off the back of your rig is not allowed at most parks. A gruff man came up to my partner and asked if he had been given rules. We did not know that he was the manager and he did not ID himself. We did not know that we were given the rules. We really feel that if you are the manager that you should introduce yourself and you should have rules with you and not just walk off after curtly asking if we had gotten a copy of the rules and don't rinse it.
Great dog run. - PhilNic

Busy park and because I travel with a service dog they put me in a site near a large open lot. The site #6 is partially taken up by a large saguaro cactus. Roads are paved and easy to navigate. - Edd505

This is a big, plain, park with wide paved streets, wide gravel sites, concrete patios with no tables, and good utilities. Wifi is Tengo internet and you get one hour/day free; we just used our Verizon hotspot, so don't know how fast it was. There is no cable or broadcast antenna, but few trees to block satellite. There were plenty of empty sites in mid-February. There was a small, fenced dog run. It was a good value and we would probably return for a short stay. - Dr. John

Nicest RV park in town. Wide streets and easy to maneuver sites. After dry camping on BLM land for awhile this campground was a nice change. Clean facilities and friendly staff. Can get busy during January because of the RV show. Big rig friendly in all areas. Limited shady sites. Most sites are without shade. We will stay here again in our motorhome. - lmg
