(Quartzsite Area, Arizona)


The La Posa LTVA is located south of the junction of Interstate 10 and US 95.  Exit either interchange, west or east of Quartszite, and follow Business 10 to the traffic light. Turn south on US 95. (US 95 becomes State 95 north of this intersection).

Click this map for an expanded view the Quartzite area.

You'll now pass areas, West La Posa, North La Posa and, at MM 102 you'll arrive at La Posa South on the east side of the highway and Tyson Wash on the west.

South La Posa is the main area with water, dump and garbage disposal. West La Posa has garbage disposal only. North La Posa has garbage disposal and outdoor rest rooms (see Special BLM Rules). Tyson Wash has garbage disposal, outdoor rest rooms and telephone. All four areas have personnel at their main entrances.

There is also a sanitary dump and garbage disposal station approximately 1 mile north of Quartzsite on the east side of the highway.

A $5 per day fee is now charged between April 15th and September 15th. Further explanation can be found in the rules section.

All services can be obtained in Quartzsite. The main attraction here is the annual winter flea market. This is of interest primarily to rock hounds, as you'll find every kind of mineral, precious and semi-precious stones displayed for sale there. It started as an annual rock market held in February but it now runs just about all winter and has expanded to include just about everything. 

(Additional information and directions can be found at the official La Posa BLM web site in Yuma, Arizona.
