From I-10, jump off at the Ehrenberg exit, and take the frontage road on the south side of the interstate. Drive west pass the Flying J truck stop and keep your eyes peeled for a dimly visible, and equally dimly readable BLM sign. Or follow your GPS to the beginning of the road at 33.603125N by 114.525405W. The road runs several miles south along the river, and allows for an eventual cross on the Cibola Farmer's bridge into California.
Blythe used to boast a free dump station at Miller Park. Alas, the city dads decided that was too much of a good thing. Still, you can dump your tanks in town for a $7 fee at the new (and improved?) dump station. You'll find it at the waste treatment facility at 15901 S. Broadway, Blythe, 92225.
