Holiday Palms RV Park, Quartzite, Arizona

On our journey from Southern California to Phoenix, Arizona for Dodger Spring Training, we encountered such traffic that our ETA was pushed back to an unreasonable hour. So, instead of pressing on to the Phoenix area, we opted to stay the night in Quartzite. Feeling fairly confident in the area as a whole after having read several featured articles on the area in Motorhome Magazine, we pulled in after dark. We chose this particular park over the many other options in the area after perusing websites, mainly another RV review blog with submissions from RVers like you, for its reported cleanliness and close proximity to the interstate. We were surprised just how many RV parks there are in Quartzite. When we pulled of the interstate, weary from travel, the frontage road was spotted with
park after park. We drove past several and were pleased with our choice. We had called in earlier and secured a pull thru spot after speaking with a very nice staff member. Sure enough, she did leave a bundle of information about the park on the office door, and we pulled into our site easily. Interior roads are paved, and sites are crushed gravel (common in this desert area). Sites have hookups and were level, and spacious typical of an RV park. We were staying in spots designated as "overnight sites" on the park map, as opposed to more seasonal or permanent residents. There are park models here, but we were clearly in a more transient section of the park. Sites were clean and offered a picnic table to visitors. We were here less than 12 hours and didn't get out to explore the park much, but at our late arrival time we did notice that a group of men had gathered earlier in the evening for the Poker Night and were still quietly continuing their play. A quick glance at the park map informed us that there were well over a 200 sites here, a laundry facility, recreation hall, library, kitchen, car wash and spa (no pool). We quickly settled into sleep, although interstate noise was a slight issue for us as we dozed off. The next morning we quickly packed up and moved on our way, but did notice an activities board on the office as we left informing guests and residents of a myriad of activities from chapel services to potlucks and poker nights.  This little place is somewhere we have definitely hung our hats several times since our first stop for a quick stopover on our travels into Arizona and beyond.
