14 spots 2 trees if you can call them trees. Must call ahead and have reservations as this is a really small park. High turnover we stays longer than anyone but wanted to take our time and enjoy a relaxing vacation. This is a wonderful value. 20 yards away is the Park Service RV park. They get nothing you get full hookups access to the swimming pool across the road. The owner give a 1/2 off discount to people that have a senior park pass. WiFi is available in the resort across the street but not in the RV section. They have been trying to get it but the state will not let them. Gas is available but diesel is not at this location. We camped at Stovepipe Wells Village RV Park (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Scotty's Castle tour, Ubeheb Crater, Bottle House and Rhyolite, Death Valley Museum along with Borax Museum, evening time Gold Canyon, Furnace Creek Resort outdoor Borax museum, Bad Water and Artists Palette, do Artists Palette at sunset. Dante's View is over 6,000 feet and about 40 degrees cooler with a wind take a coat. We Spent 6 nights great time. About 2 miles from Scotty's Castle have your camera ready there is a coyote that hangs out alongside the road hoping for food. Do not feed her.

The campground is actually just a gravel parking lot with full hookups. No trees, tables, etc. However, the views are lovely and it was very quiet when we were there. The NPS "campground" is right next door and is the same flat gravel lot but with NO hookups. You check in at the front desk of the hotel across the street. The staff everywhere we went were helpful and nice...it seemed like they all liked being in this desolate region and were full of helpful sightseeing tips.

There isn't much in Stovepipe Wells, but it has what you need - gas and food. The bar served excellent beer and had somewhat decent wifi reception. However, don't count on being able to get much WiFi reception anywhere in DV! We liked the location as we were able to use it as a base to see and explore the northern part of the park. There is a NPS Ranger station nearby. We camped at Stovepipe Wells Village RV Park (Concessionaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

I know it would have been helpful for me to understand the situation at Stovepipe Wells before I got there, so I will start with that. There is a motel/cabins with bar, restaurant, gift shop and pool on the south side of Highway 190. On the other side is a general store and gas station, NPS campground (which is a big parking lot with marked spaces and curbs surrounded by desert and fabulous views of the mountains). Between the store and the NPS parking lot is a smaller parking lot with 14 long pull-through spaces side-by-side close together. All this is in the middle of Death Valley with the nearest outpost about 25 miles away at Furnace Creek. We really liked staying here and think it is one of the bargains of Death Valley. For $16 (using the US senior discount card) you get full hookups, access to the very nice pool, and fabulous views front and back. In the NPS campground, you get basically the same views, probably more space (it was never more than 40% full the whole week we were there), generator noise, no pool (unless you pay for a pass) and no hook ups for a bit less cost. Staying in this area is much quieter and darker than at Furnace Creek and closer to some very nice and less-visited sites (sand dunes, Mosaic Canyon, Aguerreberry Point, the Eureka mine, Titus Canyon, Marble Canyon and others. We stayed at both places and each has its merits, but if you want to experience more of the quiet and solitude of Death Valley, Stovepipe Wells is a great place to do it. We camped at Stovepipe Wells Village RV Park (Concessionaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

Good place for what it is. Gravel parking lot with hookups in the middle of Death Valley NP. Store, restaurant, and gas available (no diesel). They say they have WiFi available at the lounge (not at sites), but you cannot connect even after midnight. No cell service either. People are friendly and it is a good place to stay to explore Death Valley. Just be aware that you are pretty isolated.

Rate reflects Senior Discount available with National Parks Senior Pass. While we made reservations on-line as per the web-site, there were plenty of pull through sites available. We spent three nights here while exploring Death Valley. Rest rooms available at the General Store, a short walk and showers available at the hotel pool across the street. We did not use either but observed the showers were in dire need of cleaning. No Wi-Fi or TV at the sites. Wi-Fi available at the hotel, but very weak and slow. No cellular phone service at all.

For an RV park in the middle of one of the hottest places in the world all we really wanted was to have reliable power to run our air conditioning units which it did no problems. It is conveniently located to all the Death Valley attractions and as guests of the park you are able to use the motel across the road facilities including the swimming pool. We also visited the Badwater Saloon to have a few drinks after a hot day in the sun. Wifi was non existent in the park; however, is available in the saloon and also the guest lounge room. The convenience store is open from 7 am - 10pm and has all the necessities. Staff were friendly - especially the bar man. Thought it a bit unnecessary, however, that a fellow camper was reminded of the checkout time by one of the managers; check out time was 11:00 and this was at 11:20. It was evident that he was packing up, and as there were no other campers in the park, couldn't quite understand what the drama was. Would definitely stay here again due to all the facilities so close by. We camped at Stovepipe Wells Village RV Park (Concessionaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

To our surprise, we accidentally found out that this CG provides a 50% discount to holders of the Federal Senior Pass. That makes this place an incredible buy at $16. Who cares if it is a gravel parking lot with hookups, at that price it doesn't matter. The office staff were very pleasant and informative at check-in. This is one of the few "resorts" we've encountered that treats CG customers as if they are at a hotel. We can actually eat at the restaurant, if we wish, and charge our meals to our "room." There's no cell service in the Valley, but the CG has free Wi-Fi in the "lounge". However, with our WiFiRanger we were able to connect from our site, something the staff said wasn't possible. It's not great Wi-Fi (it's satellite-based), but at least it provides internet access. The best aspect of the CG, of course, is that you are in the middle of Death Valley and all the sightseeing spots are within easy driving distance. We camped at Stovepipe Wells Village RV Park (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

For in the middle of no where, this was a welcome site. View of the dunes at a distance. Level sites, no trees but you can't expect that in Death Valley. Dark at night: can see all the stars. NPS campground right next to this one, so be sure you make the correct turn. They only have 14 sites, but at this time they were not busy.

This is a parking lot behind the general store. No grass, shade, etc.. Just power and water which is nice when it is very hot out. Check in is across the street. The pool is across the street and it is very nice. They even provide pool towels. We camped at Stovepipe Wells Village RV Park (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

Site gravel pull through and not level. Amenities included use of restroom/showers and pool across the street at the motel. No TV available except for satellite. Wi-Fi at motel, but not able to connect from campground. If you need to buy gas in Death Valley fill up in Stovepipe Wells. It was over a dollar a gallon cheaper there than Furnace Creek.

Not worth the price. You have water, electric, and dump at each site but unless you want the electric, spend twenty bucks less by camping next door. We camped at Stovepipe Wells Village RV Park (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

In addition to full hook-ups, location is what makes this park awesome. If you're visiting Death Valley, it pretty much puts you right in the middle of everything you would want to see during your visit. I was there for a week and was out everyday in every direction. Great to be able to come back to full hook-ups, store, restaurant, bar, 24 hour gas. Very friendly and professional staff. No reservations accepted.

Had not planned to stay at Stovepipe Wells, but after stopping we liked the looks of the RV park and also the facilities and friendly staff. Very nice experience and would stay here again. Close to the sand dunes, which are right off the main road so we took the RV. Gas was also cheap (ER) than at Furnace Creek by over $1.00 per gallon. If you get stuck in Death Valley for gas Stovepipe Wells has the best gas prices by far. We paid $31 for the hookup variety which included a nice little continental breakfast buffet. Also has dry camping for less at the adjacent campground. We camped at Stovepipe Wells Village RV Park (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

There are two RV Parks at Stovepipe Wells Village. One is run by the NPS and the other is a private concern run by Xanterra Inc. Both are behind the General Store and next to each other. Both are on hard packed dirt/sand. The private one has hook ups for electric/sewer/water and are pull through. One registers at the hotel across the street from the General Store and further amenities include the use of the facilities including the swimming pool, showers/bathrooms, ice machine, guest lounge and soda/phone. The NPS run site has numerous places to camp and is basically dry camping with limited times for generator use and is much cheaper to stay. I saw dumpsters and a small building at this site, but I don't know if there were showers there. Death Valley is an awesome experience; however, come prepared at all levels. Many of off main road scenic sights have turn around areas for large rigs. I was in a 28' MH towing a vehicle and had no problem.
