12 Parks near Shoshone, California
Nov 2016 - $40.00
This is one of our favorite RV parks. The price has gone up the last few years, but it has really been cleaned up. There is a large grass tent area, a big pond, a swimming pool fed by natural warm spring water, shady salt ceder trees with privacy and lots of places to walk your dog. Shoshone is the last settlement before Death Valley and the RV park doesn't try and pretend to be a Tyrolian village. It fits in beautifully with the Mojave desert. The staff are great! Wifi is very good and dependable. There is a natural stream that is being restored and is home to the rare pupfish. The people running the park really care about the desert environment. We spend a few days here twice a year just to acclimate to the desert and to relax and unwind before taking on Death Valley. - toccata

Due to the super bloom in Death Valley there were no sites available in the Park.
The campground is not fancy but meets ones needs. No cell service of any kind. Prices for goods and gas in Shoshone are over priced so stock up and gas up before you get there. If you do need something make the drive to Pahrump, NV.
Would have been a better experience for visiting the park if the closest road into the park wasn't closed due to the flooding in October. - jnateg

Apparently spring break in California starts in the winter as we were unable to book a site in Death Valley National Park. This was what was available. RV Park is a couple of acres of mostly dirt. Sites are close to one another and alternate directions. No TV by air and they have chosen to not offer cable, so bring your satellite dish and insist on a space away from trees or bring your DVDs. WIFI worked okay the first 3 days we were here. Then someone checked in and streamed movies all night knocking everyone else in the park off the Internet. Owners do not monitor WIFI use. Electric, water, sewer were fine. When we checked in, the owners were reportedly ill, so a waitress from the local restaurant checked us in. She didn't know much and cared even less, so not much help. If you can book a site in the national park, do it. - ramblin' vagabonds

This is a good to stay while visiting Death Valley with full hook-ups. The sites are gravel, but are large and clean. There is a small Casino and surrounding facilities. There is a nice grassed area with a large pond, petting animal pens with goats, donkeys, large cow. There is nothing else in the area, but it is a great spot for a relaxing day or two and Death Valley is just a few miles away. - Ruffin It

This is an oddball place. The casino and hotel grounds are nice, with a huge pond with ducks. There are two burros and a goat, and lots of antique implements around. Lawns, gazebos, outdoor seating. Looks like the rooms are nice. But, the RV park is an afterthought, if that. Dusty, very dusty, and while the owners can't help it that the wind blows, it seems like nothing has been done for dust control. Thank goodness there were very few rigs here to raise more dust than the wind. Sites were rutted even tho they've only had rain once the entire winter. The few small trees there were didn't have enough water and were dying. On a positive note, the WiFi worked well, and the hotel property was pleasant to walk around in. No tables at the sites. A big dusty gravel/sand parking lot. At least it didn't cost much for the full hookups. - LeeL

This is a good safe campground. Close to entrance to Death Valley. Good food. Friendly people. A little dusty. Had a great time with the animals. There are ducks, donkeys and a large goat to visit. I would stay again. - BTWHITIS

Like water to a thirsty desert traveler, this place was a sight for sore eyes. Beautiful on all fronts, it was immaculate and the staff was friendly. Level, well paved sites with BBQ, fridge and stove top on each site with little gazebos to sit in. Lighting was wonderful and best of all: a security guard was present. Yes, it had a few roaches that came out at night on the grounds but these kept our dog busy who wore himself out. This is outdoor living and we don't expect it to be bug free. We recommend this place to anyone coming through the area! - alexzm

We are here as we speak. It is a beautiful RV park. Prossibly one of the nicest I've been to. Pool is nice, restrooms are great and everyone is so friendly. They escort you to your spot and procede to help you park and hook up everything. That was a first. Could have a 10 except fot the problem that was noted last year about the BUGS. I asked about that and the office girl said that was from the previous owners. Well, maybe it comes with the territory but once the sun went down, out they came. Huge spiders and big water like roaches. Absolutely disgusting. I'm sure they can't help it, but we're leaving only after one night because I'm scared of taking some home with us. If they could fix that problem it'd totally be a 10. But until then, I think I'm even being generous. - dcarrillo

This is a 5-star RV resort that has apparently changed ownership recently. Check-in was quick and easy and they provided a guide to the site. All sites are paved and landscaped beautifully. Our premium site was double size and included a stainless steel BBQ and a gazebo. The clubhouse is gorgeous with bowling alley, bar, large fitness center, and showers inside the resort-style dressing areas with jacuzzi, sauna, massage room, etc. The pool area outside was very nice with waterfalls, etc. Their Wi-Fi worked great. Somebody spent millions to develop this resort! The only thing unusual about this resort was that it was only about 10% full -- perhaps because it is at the far north end of Pahrump and about 9 miles to city center. We paid $30 with our Passport America membership and for the amenities, it was a good deal. It's a great place to base for easy 1 hour trips to Death Valley. - Skycrane77

This a very nice, well cared for RV Park. We have stayed here several times before and came back because we like it. They advertise they accept Passport America and that is one of the reasons we come here. However, this year at check in I was advised they don't accept Passport America or Good Sam discounts the last three months of the year. Not mentioned on their website or the Passport America catalog. Basically doubles the nightly rate. - VKS
Nov 2016 - $13.00
I stayed a month. The rate is the daily rate for a month excluding electricity.
This is the best for appearance and amenities, work out room, pool, restaurant, bar, bowling. The ground surface is either cement or asphalt - no dirt. The staff is very nice and helpful. If you are staying a long time I would highly recommend it. - Dex

The Nevada Treasure is the nicest park we have stayed in so far in our 7,500 miles of travel and long list of of RV parks. The park is beautifully landscaped and you will immediately get a "resort" feeling when you pull in. Assorted trees, flowers, and other landscaping elements provide privacy and add additional beauty to the landscape.
Sites were spacious and included a pad beside your spot to park. Park staff guide you to your lot and are available to help you pull in. The attendants will also perform trash pickup if you put your trash at the end of your lot.
There is a massive fitness center with a bevy of fitness equipment including 5 treadmills, exercise bikes, a stair-master and a rower! The park boasts 3 pools (which is really 2 pools) but both were large, not packed, and the perfect thing to do in order to beat the Nevada heat.
The resort is centrally located to Red Rocks, Death Valley, Tecopa Springs, and Ash Meadows.
The only "slight" even close to negative is that site sewer hookups are a little longer than usual, especially if you have a mid-RV sewer line.
The Nevada Treasure resort is just that - a treasure in the desert. - lukqbwr4

This camping experience is certainly not for everyone. The main (only?) reason to camp here is the hot springs. The first thing to be aware of is that you will want to arrive with all of the fresh water that you will need for your stay. The water all comes from the hot springs source. The factors that make it great for soaking, make it not so great for putting into your rig. It is high in mineral content and alkaline, giving it a strong laxative effect. The alkalinity also quickly corrodes plumbing and fixtures. So, the best bet is to bring all of the water you will need. This used to be a county park but fell into disrepair. It is now run by a conservancy that has improved the springs considerably, but not so much the campground. The campground is a not overly attractive field with some long term and some trashed camping units, along with folks like us visiting for a few days. So do it for the water and not for the view. Check in is at the hot springs across the street from the campground and is open 24 hours every day. We had 30 amp hookup and used our tank water only for drinking and cooking. Other than that we used the bath house. There is no cell service. The campground does have WiFi for a fee, but it is quite expensive, so we did not use it. You can also pick up slow internet at the clubhouse in the campground. Satellite is not a problem. The hot springs are described below. The price is certainly right since use of the hot springs, typically $7 per person per day, comes with camping. We would definitely come back to enjoy the hot springs for a few days. - TheJim

We didn't go there for the camp site, but a good stopping off place for the night, a chance to soak/relax in the hot springs and trip to the excellent China Ranch Date Farm. Very friendly owners and staff. Camp sites are very basic in an open lot with pull through spots and OK electric, but no water. No shade. Very quiet and dark. Dump site available. No cell or OTA signal. Would definitely stay again for their hot springs and to go back to the date farm. - RPWAINC

Owner and her staff are very nice and helpful people. It was a joy to be able to stay at their resort. I will stay here again in the future because the tubs for the hot springs were almost always at a consistent temperature. - R. Bowne

Our second time visiting Tecopa Hot Springs (the first time we stayed at Delight's). We chose this place because Pastel's Bistro--a destination restaurant if ever there were one--is on the property. It's fabulous. Other pluses: they have their own labyrinth to walk and the views from the spaces up the hill are quite nice. The bathhouse for the hot springs isn't very good, though. Showers are separate from the small soaking tubs, so bring a cover up. Both tubs are fully enclosed. (Delight's are larger and one opens up to the stars.) Very nice management, though. We would stay again if soaking isn't our priority. - JCLC

Covered pool looks nice but the pool was warmer before they built the cover. Wifi free and easy to access. Showers were free. Very convenient to town. will stay again. - Cactusflower

Preferred RV Resort is a member owned park that is spacious and well maintained. Many of the sites are pull through. However, they share a front yard which makes things a bit tight. If you are not friends, you will become friends quickly.
It appears that when possible they stagger the sites to give you more room. This was our experience.
The manager is very helpful and friendly and, a wonderful photographer. Sadly, not even he could get the Wifi working during the five days we were there. The park has very thing from an indoor/out pool (sliding roof) to a hot tub. I'm sure it's just me but, if they can't get their Wifi working I hesitate to get into their hot tub. Most likely just me.
The roads are a mix of gravel and valley dust. So, it's dusty. That doesn't really matter because when the wind blows all of Pahrump is seriously dusty.
You are within easy walking distance of two casinos and a Walgreens drug store. - The Penguin

Stayed for 3 nights in our teardrop camper while traveling for 2 months across country. This was another of our favorite locations. Camp staff were all very friendly and helpful. We had many people staying there stop by and welcome us. We found this to be a perfect location for our visit to Death Valley. Very safe and secure - is gated and has staff at the gate 24 hours. - Jo and John

This place is old and looks it, but it's not a bad place to stay in an area where there are few options with hookups. The connections worked fine, and there is wi-fi, although it only worked on and off. No Verizon service at all and I don't think any cell networks work either. Manager was very nice and friendly. Cash or check only. The best part is the bath house. There are two private rooms with a shower and a soaking tub with water directly from the nearby hot spring. Very soothing and relaxing. Shower, tub and room were very clean. The shower is standard size, but the soaking pool easily accommodates two people. Restrooms were very clean too. Very quiet place. There is no town per se, though, so don't expect to gas up or do any shopping. There is a convenience store, didn't check it out though. The café across the street has great food. Worth stopping on the way to/from Death Valley for a quiet night and nice soak. - Pdxjoanne

We were planning on staying in Tecopa for one night...and it stretched into four as we waited for some general deliver mail....We moved here from another park as this one was $7 cheaper per night and is the only one in town with wifi. Which worked great, by the way. (There is no cell service in the entire valley) The park is simply a gravel lot with full hook-ups, but they have two private hot baths that were a terrific way to end the day!
The people here were some of the friendliest we have met in an RV park. We got a tour of the area from a couple that has been wintering here for 15 years! They gather for coffee each morning and cocktail hour and cards each evening.
There are quite a few little nooks and crannies to discover in this area, if you spend some time here.
NOTE: There is no drinking water in the valley. Nor is there any water to fill your tanks. The only water in the valley is the same water that fills the hot pools and it is chock full of minerals. We were able to run water through our system, avoiding the water heater, with the full hook-ups. Come prepared! The nearest water is in Pahrump, 35 miles away. The good news, is we never needed to use our shower as we soaked in the hot pools each day and showered there... - ALbums
Dec 2015 - $12.00
The $12 is based on monthly rates. We have been staying here for 15 years and it just gets better each year. We have a home about 40 miles from here yet we prefer to spend Christmas and New Years here with great friends and the healing hot springs. Trips to old gold mines, Death Valley and then a soak in the springs....it just does not get any better!
Morning coffee is accompanied with bakery goods donated by some of the campers. Happy hour is usually followed by card games and occasionally a communal camp fire. Wifi is good and the restrooms, free private hot spring baths, clubhouse and grounds are spotless. Your cell phone will most likely not work and that can be another reason to visit here. - paulg

We have stayed here on many occasions, the hot baths are absolutely wonderful. This is definitely a place to unwind and de-stress. There are no club houses etc., I wouldn't say its a place you would go if you wanted to party, and not a place for younger children. There is the check in area which has a small seating area with a computer you can access; if you park in a space closer to the buildings you can sometimes pick up their WiFi. They have a massage person who is here at times, that my husband swears by. It gets very very hot in the summer months so make sure your A/C is working!! If you visit, take a nighttime dip in one of the outside pools and enjoy the warm night air and beautiful stars! - Gypsy Lorna

What a funky, yet delicious, place. For $33, you get full hookups, desert views, serenades by the frogs in the lake (which, after very silent Death Valley, is a song to be savored), level sites, and 24/7 access to 100-104 degree private hot springs baths. You are allowed 30 minutes each time, but can go whenever. Some rooms are open to the sky, and the night sky is spectacular here. (Star parties at nearby Pastels Bistro--which you MUST go to--are held around new moons.) And how many campgrounds do you go to that have on-site massage as well as luxurious robes for sale in the office? Facilities are a bit worn, but still *delightful*. Dogs won't be too happy here--lots of gravel and mineral y ground--but they'll get over it and you won't mind after soaking in those yummy mineral baths. - JCLC
