Giant gravel lot. No hook-ups, no shade. Basically just a place to park. We camped at Stovepipe Wells--No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Food and gas, trinket store, etc. available across the road. Good jumping off spot to see the park.

Nice location for exploring central Death Valley. Quiet and spacious. All gravel and mostly level sites. Tent camping at the front and rear of the park, RV sites in the center. Can't beat the price with the senior discount! We camped at Stovepipe Wells--No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Tent Trailer.

Used the senior rate to get half price at this campsite. Just wanted to correct another posting that the sites were very wide and would accommodate our awning and slides without getting into our neighbor's spot. There were parking stripes to show how wide your spot was and I think the previous writer must have misunderstood or not seen the markings. This was a quiet campground, basically a parking lot as stated before. We camped at Stovepipe Wells--No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

A large gravel parking lot, that is Stovepipe Wells NPS campground. We liked it here for the very quietness at night and the wonderful views. Also a good place to go on excursions exploring Death Valley. Sites are spacious but offer no shade nor privacy. But since only a few campers were here that was not a problem. The private park with hookups is on the same lot and RVs there were packed like sardines. Fire pits and picnic tables only on the tent sites. Some leveling equipment is needed. Dump is on the way out. Potable water at the washrooms or the dump. Cannot comment on the washrooms, we did not use them. Surprisingly low prices in the store (except for gas) where you can buy some basic groceries. Across the street is a hotel which offers free WiFi. You can sit on the porch. Slow but reliable and good enough for checking emails or browsing a few websites. No Verizon reception here. We also spent a few nights in Furnace Creek, but would choose Stovepipe Wells over FC when we come back. The quietness, some basic free WiFi and a lower price trumps the more central location of FC for us. We camped at Stovepipe Wells--No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice central, cheap place to dry camp and see Death Valley and nearby Rhyolite and Beatty, Nevada. For $4 you can swim and take a hot bath across the road at the motel. It's worth the drive (30 miles) to Beatty for gas/fuel. If you go to Beatty have breakfast at Mel's Diner: cheap and great food, really great food and more than I could eat for $7.95. We camped at Stovepipe Wells--No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

Hard to beat $6 rate for us old guys. Since we have solar, water and a dump are all we really need. There are overpriced ($5) showers available at the motel across the road, but we passed. What I love about this CG is the total lack of any cell or data signals (except satellite.) The only downside is the fine layer of dust and grit that covers everything but, if that bothers you, don't camp in the desert! The host is a great guy. We camped at Stovepipe Wells--No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

This is a dry campground with no hookups. It is nothing more than a huge gravel parking lot, that if full, would be very close neighbors indeed. You might not be able to open slides they are that close. No tables, no fire pits, Fortunately, it was lightly occupied with perhaps 40 or so RV's. There is a general store and restaurant within easy walking distance. Also, a gas station if you want to pay $5 gallon regular. $6 camping fee is the senior rate.

The rate reflects a 50% discount with a Senior Pass. This campground is basically a large parking lot in the desert. The only reason that it gets a high rating is because it is in beautiful Death Valley National Park. There is a dump station and fresh drinking water. There is also a restroom with flush toilets, but there are no showers. Only the tent sites have picnic tables. The campground is open from October through April. Satellite is not a problem since there are no trees. Neither our Verizon phone nor our data card picked up a signal. There is a small store next door and a bar and restaurant. There is also a gas station that had significantly cheaper gas than at Furnace Creek. Since we love Death Valley, we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Stovepipe Wells--No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Very basic campground run by the NPS. Pay at the kiosk. All sites are big and was almost empty on the holiday weekend. Close to the center of the park. We camped at Stovepipe Wells--No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
