We stayed here for 2 nights when evicted from the adjacent Furnace Creek Campground because of a federal government shutdown. The gravel lot was lumpy, unlandscaped, and generally not nearly as nice as the main NPS campground, but we loved the fact that it was OPEN.

The park does have some views of the surrounding mountains, which was nice. Sites located on the south side of the parking lot (against the trees) are shaded so may be better in summer. We needed to generate solar power so the unshaded sites along the north side worked best for us. Site 29 was next to the walkway to the visitor center, so we had foot traffic coming by, but we liked only having a neighbor on one side since there is nothing separating the sites. Having access to the resort's pool, showers, and wifi (which we had to go closer to the office to use) also made the experience much better. The location in the central part of Death Valley is the real draw here, and we were glad to be able to finish our planned visit to the park despite the shutdown.

AT&T has no service in Death Valley, but we had limited access to 3G service via roaming. Without incurring additional charges, we were able to make phone calls and use up to 400 MB of data during the billing cycle, but check your plan before visiting.

“A perfect lay over spot while waiting to get into the Death Valley National Park Campground.”

We spent one night in Fiddler's Dry Campground while we waited for our reservation in the Death Valley Furnace Creek Campground. This is a large level gravel parking lot that the resort has in the corner of their property. They have the sites marked with plenty space between. The sites are very long. The resort people were very friendly and welcoming. We had access to the entire facility including WiFi and the pool. The lodge where you have to check in is a little tricky because the parking lot is small. We would use this facility again if visiting the area.
