The cemetery is operated and maintained by the Town of Quartzsite for the purposes of providing a cemetery, historic site and park.  The Hi Jolly monument is in the pioneer section of the cemetery where Quartzsite's pioneer families were and are laid to rest.  There is a new section to the cemetery also for those who chose to be interred in Quartzsite.  The cemetery sits at the west end of town.  The Town is committed to beautifying the cemetery and preserving this historic site.

In 1935, Arizona Governor Benjamin Moeur dedicated a monument to Hadji Ali and the Camel Corps in the Quartzsite Cemetery. The monument, located at his gravesite, is a pyramid built from local stones and topped with a copper camel. The monument is the most visited location in Quartzsite.
