Quartzsite, Arizona is a small town in the Southwest Sonoran desert in Arizona, located in La Paz County, at the crossroads of Interstate 10 between Phoenix and Los Angeles, and Arizona State Highway 95 between Lake Havasu City and Yuma.

A fort was built by a new settler, Charles Tyson, in 1856 as a protection against Indian raids. Soon it became a stage stop because of the good water. The area was called Ft. Tyson or Tyson's Wells, its well-used name. When the stage lines stopped running, the area was abandoned. In 1897, there was a mining boom here and the town was revitalized. At this time, it was renamed Quartzsite and the spelling evolved to its present state through an error.

Quartzsite has been a rock hound's paradise since the 1960's. Thousands of acres of dispersed BLM camping draws upwards to two million visitors a year.

Today, Quartzsite is still known as a gathering place of a different kind.

it’s a different story during the Winter months;
