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. We camped at Kofa Wildlife Refuge in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For some reason this site won't let you add a $o.oo cost - it forces the minimum to $1 - but this area is absolutely free of charge. Quartzsite is just up the road if you need supplies, and there's an RV Pit Stop for filling fresh water on the way in or dumping waste tanks on the way out.

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. We camped at Kofa Wildlife Refuge in a Motorhome.
