About Blythe, California

Blythe is a community of about 19,000 full-time residents and is located about 27 miles west of Quartzsite, off Interstate 10. Blythe is an agricultural community of about 100,000 acres of farmland that grows alfalfa, grains, cotton and more.

Blythe is the home of Walt Scott, the first peach harvester for the season in the nation and award-winning cotton grower, Jack Seiler.

The 350 days of sunshine per year with winter temperatures between 55 and 75, make Blythe an inviting winter haven.

Blythe has several RV parks and campgrounds, some of which are located right on the Colorado River, offering fishing, boating and other water sport opportunities. The Colorado River recreation area extends from Yuma Arizona to Lake Powell, about 95 miles of navigable waters.
