“Just OK”

Reviewed Jan 02, 2019

Overall Rating

Furnace Creek is centrally located and close walking distance to the "Ranch at Furnace Creek": golf course, airport , market, restaurants, Visitor Center and etc. However, for my money, Texas Springs is a better Death Valley camping experience. Better views, quieter (no generators) and easy hiking alternatives. Not that far, maybe... more

“Mountain views, good site spacing, and perfect location in central Death Valley NP”

Reviewed Dec 27, 2018

Overall Rating

This like-new national park campground, which even has a few full hookup sites, offers the very best site quality and camping experience in the central portion of Death Valley. The nearby Texas Spring, Sunset, and Fiddlers campgrounds, as well as the NPS campground at Stovepipe Wells, are basically all gravel parking lots with little s... more

“Central location!”

Reviewed Dec 09, 2018

Overall Rating

Price listed above is with the All-Access Pass. We camped for three nights in our RV. Furnace Creek was a basic campground that met our needs. We found that visiting Stovepipe Wells was worth it just even for stocking up. Showers were $4 ($5 at Furnace Creek Ranch), gas was at least $1 less expensive than Furnace Creek and beer and f... more

“Great campground central to DV attractions”

Reviewed Nov 15, 2018

Overall Rating

Loved the full hookup including 50amp plugs. Site as 89 ft long paved pad with gravel area that has picnic table and fire ring. No shades, but is on the outer side of loop so has a little bit of privacy towards the back. Also stayed one night on site 24, with no hookups. Pad is 54 feet long, with camp neighbors on sides and back. ... more

“Great Launching Pad For Adventures”

Reviewed Nov 07, 2018

Overall Rating

We met up with friends and enjoyed an amazing adventure. We wished for plug-ins but there are only a few in the park. The sites are level, large and clean. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. There is almost no shade in the park, which did create a problem for us. The park is walking distance to the visitor center. We spe... more

“Best option in the park”

Reviewed Nov 02, 2018

Overall Rating

This campground is likely the best option in the park. Good roads with level paved spots and there is a dump station with potable water. Some of the sites have electric but most are dry. Some scrub trees and the bathrooms are clean. (no showers) Site lengths vary from 25' to 80+' so if you reserve in advance, you should be able to ... more

“Perfect location”

Reviewed May 26, 2018

Overall Rating

Stayed here in my pop up tent trailer. Got very cold at night but pleasant for day hiking. We were right next to the visitors center and enjoyed the evening programs. Paid the $5 to use the pool which was perfectly warm and a treat. Bathrooms were clean and water/trash stationary available.

“Green in the desert! Great location to explore Death Valley National Park and a limited number of FHU spots to make Death Valley’s triple digit temps bearable.”

I’d like to say it was pure genius, but it was really just great luck that we arrived at Furnace Creek Campground on April 16th – the day the entire campground switched over to first come/first served. We arrived early on a Monday and scored a full-hookup pull-through that was our happy home for the next 6 nights. If you need hooku... more

“Best spot in Death Valley!”

Our rate reflects the discount we get with the Lifetime Access Pass. I was pleasantly surprised! We were in Death Valley first and foremost because my husband and a friend ran in the half marathon/marathon. The race started right in Furnace Creek, so I booked a spot at the Furnace Creek campground right when it came available on re... more

This was a good campground, centrally located in the southern part of Death Valley. Paved roads and level parking pads, everything else is dirt and rock. Lots of sunshine for our solar!
