Cost per night to Park here – $0

We parked here for 14 days during the Xscapers Quartzsite Convergence in January 2018.  We were joined by 170+ other rigs in our RV Club.  The Plomoso Road held our growing group (compared to last year) however we were all parked pretty close to one another just due to our shear numbers.  Prior to the big tent traffic coming into town cell service was good. As the Big Show week approached service diminished with the number of RVers arriving in town.  Both AT&T and Verizon worked while parked here but AT&T was the stronger service.  Very few washes to navigate other than scrub brush here and there.  Wind can be a factor as there is little protection. We would park here again.
