Long-Term Visitor Areas

Long-Term Visitor Areas (LTVAs) are specially designated areas located on BLM lands in California and Arizona. These LTVAs provide places for visitors to stay for longer periods of time between September and April. A seasonal special recreation permit is required, and the permit allows visitors to stay in any of the six LTVAs in California or two LTVAs in Arizona: Imperial Dam LTVA near Yuma and La Posa LTVA near Quartzsite.  The America The Beautiful Interagency Passes, or Golden Age/Golden Access Passports are not accepted.
