We will lead the caravan from Quartzsite to the Nellie E Saloon/Desert Bar. The trip is scheduled for Saturday 21 January 2023. We will be departing the campground at 10:00am....that means we will be lined up and ready to go, not "a fixin' to get ready to go". Carpooling is highly encouraged.
The Desert Bar is one of the unique places that is a must do at least once. It is located in the desert about 5 miles off AZ 95 just North of Parker. Once you leave the pavement you will be on a dirt road, but the road is maintained and in good condition that can be traveled in a passenger car.
The "Nellie E Saloon" is situated in the Buckskin Mountains, in Parker, Arizona, on land that was an old mining camp. The camp was located on the portion of land that is now the parking lot. Parking is free, but the lot fills up fast which is why it is important for us to leave camp on time. Prices are reasonable and they do have a pretty good variety of food (hamburgers, hotdogs, sandwiches, fries, etc.), soft drinks, beer and a bar. CASH ONLY, NO CREDIT CARDS!!! They do have enclosed restrooms with running water and solar and generator power.
The Desert Bar is open October thru April, Saturdays and Sundays only, from “HIGHNOON” till 6pm, Arizona time. They also have live entertainment and dancing from about 1pm until closing. Here is a link to their website with much more information and some history of the property: http://www.thedesertbar.com/
We are looking forward to introducing the newcomers to this unique and one-of-a-kind place and welcoming back those that have been before! If you have any questions about this trip, don't hesitate to ask.
