A few days of boondocking.

After leaving Algodones we were heading north ( and home ) on 95. Didn't make it far, Quartzsite, Ponderosa rd. looked so inviting, we just pulled over and parked for the day. Had a very nice day and a quiet night, reading a good book. It's a long term visitor area and at the entrance people leave books behind, it's a sort of library desert style. We talked to a few nice people from BC, they recommended another BLM operated campsite west of Parker. You have to cross the Colorado in Parker into California, take the first road right and along the river. After about 4-5 miles there is a resort like fancy RV park on the right (35-40 bucks a night, full hook up), the next driveway is the BLM campground, right on the river, ( 5 bucks/night, no hook up). We loved it so much we stayed for 2 nights. Years ago we have been to Bullhead City and Laughlin and wanted to go back to the very nice capmping on the Arizona side called Davis Camp. For 15 $ a night it's not really a boondocking Paradise but a wonderful place on the river. Laughlin has casino parking, at the Riverside were dozens of RV-s but too noisy so after donating a few bucks to the local economy we went back to Arizona and spent another 2 nights in the camping. Plans after that? Las Vegas for another couple of days.
Sometimes you just need a day doing NOTHING.

BLM camping on the California side of the Colorado,
it comes with frequent visitors.

I understand you have to have your toys but what to do after a wrong turn?

The Riverside Casino in Laughlin Nevada. RV parking OK.....

.......but we prefer Davis Camp on the Arizona side of the river.
