As Booster says, Class Bs and Truck Campers are at a disadvantage to others. Class A folks use their toads and the rest their tow vehicles to get around to see the sights, go out for a meal or hit the grocery stores, while using their RVs to preserve their sites. Something B folks can’t do without resorting to some other means of staking a claim. Not an issue in the middle of dispersed nowhere but a pretty major one when boondocking near national parks and monuments etc.

I have relatives that volunteer at Cibola wildlife refuge on the Colorado river. There is BLM camping directly across from the visitor center. There's also camping at Kofa wildlife refuge nearby that's very nice. Check both of these places out. They are much less hectic than Quartzite and very close. Kofa has Palm Canyon hike which is interesting. Not crowded. Not dusty terrain. Also check out the state parks on the 95 going from Quartzite to Parker. i think that there are 3 of them on the Co river. We just drove that road recently. Too hot right now to camp. Better in a month or so.

Left a folding chair, water hose with a nozzle, and water filter attached at an Oregon State Park coastal site to preserve our site (which we paid for) while we left one early morning to sight see. Came back and only found the nozzle sitting on top of the water faucet. First time in over 50 years of camping that I ever had items go missing. Now have a roll of flagging tape. Very glad that I took my electric line with me. Different world these days. Sadly.

This is the Hi Jolly BLM dispersed campground one mile north of Quartzsite. You don't need an awning with the low winter sun as you can drive around and park anywhere at any orientation. There are several makeshift randomly located stone fire pits built by campers. This campground had no vault toilets or any other facilities. Just a flat desert.
