Second time I've camped here. It's the best NPS campground in the park. Much prettier and quieter than those in Furnace Creek, also much cooler at 2000' higher. Close to many sights to see on the north end of DVNP, including Scottys Castle, Ubehebe Crater, The Racetrack, DV-Big Pine Road. Only tent camped here but would have been able to get my 30' fifth wheel into at least half of the spots and saw many trailers and motorhomes here. Bathrooms and dump station are nice, but beware- no cellphone reception, no gas within 50 miles, you need a credit card to pay for campsite, and no real tire service for 88 miles (Tonopah) in case you get a bad flat, like we did on Racetrack Road. We camped here in a Tent.

The rate reflects a 50% discount with a Senior Pass. This is definitely our favorite Death Valley Campground. It is the quietest and farthest away from the most visited places in the park. However, it is close to Scotty’s Castle. It is a campground for tenting and smaller RV’s. We have a 27 foot motorhome, and there are probably a dozen or so sites in the campground that will accommodate us; however, many of them are very sloped and require a bit of leveling. And yes, we did get the side of our motorhome scraped by some thorns, but it was worth it. This campground is open year round and does not take reservations. It can get full for larger rigs, so plan to arrive a bit early in the day. There is a dump station and fresh water. There is also a restroom with flush toilet, but no showers. Satellite is not a problem. Neither our Verizon phone nor our data card picked up a signal. Stock up before you go, since it will be a long way to any supplies. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Furnace Creek and Panamint Springs but we did drive in to see this campground. It's a great place to dry camp in Death Valley, especially with all the great places to visit in the north end of the park. It is pretty limited for access, but I think with proper precautions, we could squeeze our 36 ft fifth wheel into a nice spot. The entry has overhanging trees that 'could' scratch your rig if you aren't careful. What a great place to enjoy the less crowded (and quiet) end of the park! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the best campground to stay at in Death Valley National Park if you want to explore the North end of the Park, including Ubehebe Crater, Eureka Dunes and the Racetrack. Scotty's Castle is just a few miles away. This campground does not take reservations, but rarely fills up. It has restrooms with flush toilets. There are no hookups, but there is a dump station. Generator hours are from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. Most of the sites will accommodate RVs, but they are almost all quite rocky and uneven. Many will require you to do some creative leveling. That said, this is still a nice campground if you want to experience the grandeur of Death Valley. Keep your dogs under control and don't let them out at night - coyotes serenaded us in the campground each night of our stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
