Many members of my camping club go to Quartzsite every year when the Good Sam tent is there. We have stayed at Rice Ranch for years, dealing with the ups and downs of lost reservations, water or electric problems, etc. but loved the location. We made our reservations for this year when we were there last January. The gal in our group who has made all the arrangements has checked 3 times over the last 9 months just to be sure we had enough sites reserved, etc. Well, the other day she called and was told they ONLY want larger groups and those who will stay a week or longer. Just like that, they dropped us! If we wanted to go there in 2014 we'd have to pay the full price up front a year ahead! To say we are not happy with them is putting it mildly.
Our gal discovered the guy who runs Rice Ranch has a brother who has hookup sites across the street, so we managed to get in there. We hope, that is. We are frantically getting checks from everyone to lock that in, but all of this just shows how disorganized and frantic things can get in Q during the season!
Guess if we decide to have another gtg in Q we wouldn't have enough gals to fill their quota either. We had great times meeting each other there, eating Sheila's famous Indian tacos, and talking, talking, talking.
Are you still going to BLM campground, Sheila?
