Destinations | Desert


Nearly 100 miles of navigable waterways on the Colorado River - between the Palo Verde Diversion Dam (above Blythe) & the Imperial Dam below Yuma, AZ. City services, fast food, gas stop. Blythe California is an ideal location for outdoor recreation in winter time - hike, bike, kayak, wheelin dirt back roads. Summers can get super hot, but the rest of the year is prime for visiting.

  • description:
    Big agricultural region. As far as tourism is concerned, its not about the city of Blythe, but the surrounding areas of vast open space. Enough desert to really get lost in. Rich soils, jagged peaks, river ways, desert hiking trails, off roading & minimal trees make this a winter haven for many traveling camper vans and RVers.
