There are two off ramps in Quartzsite -- one west of US-95 (Quartzsite Blvd/Ave.24E), and one east of US-95 (Riggles Ave./E Main St.-Bus10).
There is NO off ramp at US-95. Follow the directions detailed below. Because there is heavy traffic in the area of the Main Event/RV Show, it is suggested you avoid using the Quartzsite Blvd./East 24th St. exit.
Instead, follow these directions to access US-95 South and our Camping area in LaPosa South:
EASTBOUND I-10 FROM CALIFORNIA: Travel through Quartzsite to the Riggles Ave./E Main St. (Exit 19) off ramp. At the end of the ramp, turn right onto Riggles Ave. Proceed to Kuehn St. Turn right onto Kuehn St. and proceed to the intersection of Kuehn and US-95/S. Central Blvd. Turn left onto US-95 and proceed south about 4 miles to the LaPosa South entrance. Turn left into the LaPosa South LTVA. Stop at the ranger kiosk to pay your fees.
WESTBOUND I-10 FROM PHOENIX and POINTS EAST OF QUARTZSITE: Exit at Riggles Ave./E Main St./Bus-10 (Exit 19) off ramp. Turn left at end of the ramp, proceed over the freeway to Kuehn St. Turn right onto Kuehn St. and proceed to US-95/S. Central Blvd. Turn left onto US-95 and proceed to LaPosa South.
SAN DIEGO COUNTY, or as an alternate Southern Orange County route: Take I-8 East to Yuma, AZ. Take the Fortuna Rd. (Exit 12) offramp. Turn left at end of ramp and proceed to US-95 North. Turn right and proceed to Quartzsite. Watch for the signs directing you into LaPosa South and turn right into the entrance.
ALTERNATE ROUTE IF YOU ARE TRAVELING WEST I-10 from points east: After passing through Tucson, transition to the I-8 West (Exit 199) towards Yuma, and proceed west on I-8 to Fortuna Rd (Exit 12) in Yuma, AZ. Turn right at end of the ramp onto Fortuna Rd. to US-95. Turn right onto US-95 and proceed to Quartzsite. This route avoids the metropolitan Phoenix area of the I-10 (lots of traffic).
IF YOU ARE TRAVELING IN ON US-95 FROM THE YUMA, AZ AREA, BE SURE TO WATCH FOR THE LAPOSA SOUTH LTVA ENTRANCE!! If you miss the entrance, turning around will be difficult.
AFTER YOU'VE ENTERED LAPOSA SOUTH AND PAID YOUR FEES, PROCEED STRAIGHT AHEAD ON THE BLACKTOP ROAD. THE ROAD HEADS GENERALLY EAST BOUND. JUST LOOK FOR THE RAINBOW FLAGS AS YOU TRAVEL EASTBOUND ALONG THE BLACKTOP.

RainbowRV has two types of events Chapter Events and Kamp Trips . Chapter Events are formal whereas KampTrips are impromptu and require less organization. Both events are listed on the one calendar and open to all members. To find an event mouse over Events on the red menu line then click on Monthly Calendar
- Click on any event or navigate to the next month
- The event opens up with a click and you will know that it is a Kamp Trip if it has a Blue Respond button in the cover image. Check out details about the event , look at who is going then click RESPOND to list your intent. When responding to KampTrips you create interest and promote participation in the event. KampTrip responders make their own plans and reservations with the RV Park. No money is ever collected by the host of a KampTrip.
- When the Listing on the Calendar is a Chapter Event, registration is made with payment online. One clue to it being a formal event is the lack of a Blue respond button. Chapter Events have a orange oval button in the article that is clickable to more details about that chapter event.
KampTrips registration is a polite way to let friends know you plan to join in on the fun and helps everyone find RainbowRV members at the KampTrip. The Recent activitys tab in the Kamptrip is a folder under the KampTrip Event Details folder. Click the tab and leave a comment. Comments creates interest in the trip and promotes participation.
A “SAD” day we never thought would come where we have to say the words “Good Bye”……..The Little “Bus” that could: It was 10 yrs ago when Greg and I embarked on looking for an RV; an RV that would take our paths to a whole new direction and open our world in so many ways. It has been quite a ride during these memorable 10yrs and an adventure that’s gone by way too fast. It is a very sad day for me when I say this phrase “SHE’S SOLD” . It’s emotional for Greg and I and all the members because of all the memories it created in addition to the wonderful Rainbow RV Group it represented. We stand in front of the Bus and it’s as though it knows that today we say a fond farwell…………………..click on following highlighted link PRISCILLA GOOD-BYE.
