SW Arizona Campsites for RV Boondocking
These are the SW Arizona Campsites we've occupied in our RV Boondocking Travels. I've arbitrarily marked off the SW quarter of Arizona as being that South of Alamo Lake/Cordes Junction and West of a line through Phoenix and Sasabe on the Mexico Border.
1. I initially had little interest in going here. But, once there, and the RV show was over... with rigs thinning out... and... also moving to our second camp 22 miles north... It really grew on me.
2. These SW Arizona Campsites actually are pretty sweet places to "Weather" the depths of the winter :)
3. More about Quartzsite's BLM SW Arizona Campsites - Long Term Visitor Areas
South of I-10, and running on both sides of Route 95 is the La Posa Long Term Visitor Area (LTVA). The La Posa LTVA charge is $40 for a stay of up to 14 consecutive days, or $180 for up to a seven month stay (September 15th - April 15th). The fee entitles you to a plot of desert and use of the trash bins, dump station and a potable water station. The La Posa LTVA is divided into 4 sections:
* La Posa West is just south of the Big Tent where the RV show is held - a walkable distance. * Across the street from the West section is the North section of the La Posa LTVA, also walkable depending on how far north you park your rig. * * Further south along the west side of Route 95 is the Tyson Wash section. * And to the south of the North section is the South section.

RV Boondocking Campsites
Stay in one of the developed campgrounds. You're still boondocking. From there, make daytrips checking on Campsites using This campsite search method.
When your confidence has grown sufficient, you can start going straight there rather than the short stay in a paid, developed camp.
