Very strange set up for the utilities at this park. Our 36 ft MH has sewer about 10ft forward from the driver's side rear bumper and the electric hook-up is at the rear corner on the driver's side. We found the sewer connection at the park all the way behind the back of the motorhome almost in the spot that would be behind us-barely was able to connect to the sewer as we had a back-in site. Also have never seen something like this before but the plug for the electrical was installed upside down. Cable TV connection just had a female connector end and was not able to connect, and there was no wifi. Would ask for a pull thru site next time. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
Very average restaurants near park and over priced, good gift shop near camp ground. Would go back in winter or spring next time. Tr to see inn the park bad water, art's drive and 20 mule drive and see dante's view at sunset.

We stayed in one of the full h/u pull through sites, plenty long for a big rig and some space between sites. Clean power and low water pressure. The campground has lots of tent sites, truck camper or very small rig sites, and others that held larger rigs. There are some back in f/u sites which seemed slightly shorter and closer together but had no one behind them. Traveling around the park and seeing the other NPS and private campgrounds with rv sites, this is the preferred one (in my opinion!). We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.
Fuel was 30 cents less at Stovepipe than Furnace Creek however they only have 87 octane while Furnace Creek has 87 and 89 octane plus diesel.

If you are planning to visit Death Valley NP, you need to STAY in the park as the nearest facilities are a long way away. We really enjoyed this NPS campground. Sites were ample - not too close, but not spacious either. Price reflects dry camp sites. We booked a one day hook-up (all we could get) in the middle of a six day stay. This worked out great as we were able to dump & refill water tank. Restrooms were well maintained and staff friendly. Definitely would stay here again. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.
Be sure to go outside and check out the sky on a moonless night. The stars are awesome!

We booked three nights through Recreation.gov and got a great rate using our America the Beautiful pass. Our site #43 was on the outer loop with full hookups and a nice view of the mountains. The pad was long and fairly flat with a nice distance between sites. The entrance to the park is one driveway past the Visitors Center which can be abit tricky to spot. We were able to walk to the Visitors Center (highly recommend) and walk alittle further to Furnace Creek resort next door and have a drink in their saloon. You can also pay $5 to use their pool and showers (no towels, hair dryers or outlets in the bathroom). The park was clean and relatively quiet for being completely full. The staff are around to keep things in check and offer help if needed. I would have rated it higher, if the bathrooms had showers. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Love this park, in fact we stayed the maximum of two weeks this time. It is clean, with spacious blacktop pads to park rv and vehicle. Full hookups are great, with nice metal table and fire ring. Very quiet at night, no cable or wifi of course, but worth every minute of such a small inconvenience! My only comment may be concerning the site, wish they all had the blacktop area around the fire pit as the handicapped sites. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.
Lots of hiking, biking, exploring.

This is a no frills place but it is clean, spacious and quiet at night. It is in a great location in the park. Power and water are good. Supplies and gas close by. Camp host was friendly and rangers in kiosk are friendly and informative. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Great place to stay if you are visiting Death Valley. The place is old but clean and the price is right for a RV camp that is essentially a monopoly. However, the food offered at the 49er Café is not so good and very over priced. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
Many attractions were closed because of a heavy rain that washed out a lot of roads, but we've been to Death Valley before and it is one of our favorite US parks.

Full hookup back-in site on first come choose your site. Options to pay are at a kiosk at the park or at the NPS visitor center at Furnace Creek. Numerous bathrooms around the campground; the two closest to our site both were dirty. Campground has paved roads and sites. sites also had picnic tables and fire rings. Being Death Valley, very dry conditions for the ground, although there is some vegetation. Use caution if walking about with pets, also with food goods, as we saw several coyotes less than 200 feet from our site. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

This was our first visit to the park in 6 years, and we were very happy with the upgrades. However, there are some specifics that you need to be aware of if you come to the park after April 16th. That starts the "off season" and reservations are no longer accepted. All sites are on a first come, first serve basis, both full hook up and dry camping. The kiosk at the entry station only accepts credit cards, no cash. And the machine will only let you pay for one day at a time. So if you stay multiple days you must get a fresh tag from the machine every day. Also since there are no reservations in the off season, if you see a site you like when you drive in and verify that it is empty, claim it right away. Then go to the kiosk and get your tag. If you wait someone else may by in the site by the time you finish looking around. I will stay here again. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

We had one of the full hookup, pull through sites. It does have 50 amp service. The sites are all paved as are the roads. Spaces vary in size, but the pull throughs were very long and level. Good spacing between sites. It is Death Valley so no shade and rock/sand between sites. My only complaint would be the narrow roads. I think it could be a tight squeeze for bigger rigs getting into the back in sites. You can walk to the visitor center and to the town. Very nicely maintained park. Great value. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground was completely updated with stimulus money several years ago. Nice paved sites with tables and fire pits. We reserved a pull through, full hook up site and the senior price was very reasonable. Be aware, the full service pull through sites are sandwiched between tent sites and dry RV sites so noise can be an issue. We like it better across the street at Sunset where all of us old folks are in bed by nine! Beware, the NPS reservations system is difficult to use and frustrating if you need to make a change of date. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

We really enjoyed staying at this very nice NPS campground. The sites are roomy and long with concrete/asphalt pads, fire pits and tables. Many have shade. The view from our site was beautiful although not all sites have one. We were lucky to get a site with full hookups; make your reservations early as there are only a few full- hookup sites. No WiFi except at the Visitor Center which is just a short walk from the Campground. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground with some paved sites with electricity and some in the gravel with dry camping only. Improved sites are more $$. Excellent rest rooms and stainless dish washing station. A few sites where you can get under trees for some shade in hot weather. Make sure to have plenty of provisions. Store about a mile away has very limited choice and Very high prices. Restaurant is also expensive and the staff is very slow and seems to have an attitude. Used Access pass so it was free park entry and $8/night for the campsite. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

This is our second time at this campground. Last year there was no power, but this year there was. No more generator! Huge space, at least 30-40 ft. wide, and reasonably level. Water pressure was adequate. My only complaint would be about the number of fires. You can't leave any windows open or the rig stinks of campfire smoke. We camped at Furnace Creek (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.
