Quartzsite is a small town which welcomes up to two million visitors each winter, located just 17 miles from the California border at the intersection of I-10 and Hwy. 95. Quartzsite has been a rock hound's paradise since the 1960's. Thousands of acres of dispersed BLM camping draws upwards to a million visitors a year.
