At I-10 exit 1, Ehrenberg
lies right at the west edge of Arizona, on the banks of the Colorado River
, 4 miles from the larger town of Blythe
in California. The land adjoining the river is irrigated, and agricultural, but to the east stretch vast desert plains, completely undeveloped. Quiet, scenic backroads head both ways along the river; north to Parker
, through the Colorado River Indian Reservation, and south (unpaved) to Cibola
. Along with nearby Quartzsite
, the town makes a good base from which to explore the western deserts, popular areas including Kofa National Wildlife Refuge
, 50 miles south along US 95.
Ehrenberg has few facilities apart from the travel center, motel and restaurant beside the interstate exit; the town itself is just to the north, and includes a large RV site overlooking the river, a small number of private residences, and another restaurant.
