I spent the first night at Sunset since Texas Springs was full. Got a nice site the next morning at 10 AM. Big site with a mesquite tree for shade in the afternoons. It was hot in mid April--hit 100 one day. I would advise visiting in March instead of April. Loved the campground. Great scenery. Fun hiking. Several reviewers mention that showers are available nearby Furnace Creek. The showers are actually 2 stalls in the swimming pool bath house. Crowded with long lines--fussy swimmers complaining that non swimmers shouldn't be taking up space. As for the food at Furnace Creek, plan to cook your own meals. The food on site is overpriced and poorly prepared. The only decent meal I had was at Stovepipe Wells. The prices for everything including gas are cheaper at Stovepipe. Since Texas Springs fills every night plan to arrive in the morning or do what I did spend the first night at Sunset--it is just down the hill from Texas Springs and it rarely fills up. Texas Springs is geared toward tents and small RV's. Very clean. Nice host. I planned to stay 2 nights but was having so much fun I stayed for 4 nights. We camped at Texas Spring (NPS Campground) in a Tent.

In traveling to and from Death Valley, gas stations are far apart. Cell coverage can be non existent for miles. So be prepared.

Time to update a rating for this campground. During the Super bloom we moved here fron Sunset as winds were high and rain about to break out. The site was huge compared with Sunset. We were up top near clean bathrooms, with a table and fire ring which we couldn't use due to storm, but the views! Breathtaking! Nice neighbors from Las vegas. We were able to help folks trying to batten down a tent. Then a guy from NZ in his small truck camper knocked on our door during storm to ask if he could also park on our huge site and leave early in am as campground was full. Camping is great when you meet folks from all over the world!

PS Dog friendly which means a lot to our dalmatian and westy! We camped at Texas Spring (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

The campground is located in beautiful topography. There are lots of hills that can be hiked from the campground with great views. No generators are allowed. Minimal garbage / recycling available (one location only). This is more of a tenters campground. No showers. Dump station is located half way up the hill to the campground. It is not conveniently located for a longer stay, but good for when one leaves. The weather is cold at night and not having the option of using our generator for heat and all the loud, fire burning tenters drove us to leave this campground and return to another park. That park provided more privacy as most people had big rigs versus the small RVs or tents that were common in Texas Spring. Campground is gravel and dusty. The upper loop is for RVers and tenters. The lower loop is only for tenters. There are a few large sites, but they were difficult for us to level or 34 ft rig on (back tires on the ground). Smaller RVs will find it easier to level. Picnic tables and fire pits are on the sites. We camped at Texas Spring (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

The roads are paved, and sites were well graveled. The road to the upper RV sites is not marked. There is a camp map at the entrance. Follow the road up the steep slope to get to the RV sites. The long pull-through sites and several other sites have the fire pit in the middle of the site pad. To not have the fire pit right next to your RV means parking your RV at one end or the other. Also, if you have a neighbor, their fire pit could be right next to your RV. This is a no-generator camp, yet we had generators running a number of times. One night at 8:30 PM we told the camp host that a generator was running. There are great views from camp. We camped at Texas Spring (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Rating is for what we expected. This is a gravel parking lot. You get an aluminum picnic table and a fire ring. The sites are large and pretty level. The surrounding desert scenery is beautiful. The night skies are amazing but is still just a parking lot. If you are expecting anything else you will be disappointed. Generators are allowed right now because many of the other campgrounds are closed. We would return. We camped at Texas Spring (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Nice large sites slightly above the valley floor. B - Loop is for RV's Water close to sights, but no hose threads on faucets. Best to fill tanks at dump station on the way in. Fire Rings and tables at each site. Close to Furnace Creek Visitor center and campground. No Generators allowed. We camped at Texas Spring (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
