“Cheap, Fun Dry Camping in a Lava Field”

Reviewed 6/18/2017

Nightly rate: $6

Days stayed: 14
Site Number: 8
Overall Rating

We stayed here since it was close to Death Valley National Park and cheap, but it offers way more than that. The scenery is beautiful, with snow capped Sierra Nevada Mountains on one side and lava rocks on the other. There is some kind of an active mine right next to it and you see trucks entering and leaving, but nothing that would be... more
