La Paz County, Arizona Overview
Located in the western part of the state of Arizona, La Paz County has a population of about 20,489, according to the US Census Bureau. The county seat is Parker; however, Quartzsite is the largest community in the county. Its small population makes it the second least populous county in the state. La Paz County was created in 1983 and has a total area of 4,514 square miles 14 of which is water, and the remaining 4,500 square miles is land. The name of the county is Spanish for “the peace,” and is taken from the early settlement, now ghost town, of La Paz along the Colorado River. La Paz County was created after voters approved separating the northern portion of Yuma County, making it the only county to be established after Arizona became a state in 1912, and currently the second youngest county in the United States (the consolidated city-county of Broomfield, Colorado, was established in 2001). The county did not have a large enough tax base to begin supporting a separate county government immediately and had to rely on state money at first. As a result, Arizona laws were changed to make splitting other existing counties much more difficult. The Colorado River Indian Reservation is located in the western portion of the county. Part of the reservation extends westward into San Bernardino and Riverside Counties in California. La Paz is bordered by Mohave County to the north, Yavapai County to the northeast, Maricopa County to the east, Yuma County to the south, and to the southwest, west and northwest, California counties of Imperial, Riverside, and San Bernardino are border neighbors. There are four National Wildlife Refuge locations that are partially inside the county lines. La Paz has eight zip codes with the largest of 85344.
