“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!”

Reviewed Feb 07, 2018

Overall Rating

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

“Conveniently located, a nice place to explore Death Valley.”

Reviewed Dec 18, 2017

Overall Rating

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! The campground has a dump station with potable water. The park has very few full hookup spots (and advanced reservations are required), we were dry... more

“Great Campground in the center of the National Park”

Reviewed Dec 09, 2017

Overall Rating

This campground is all about location, which is important to see a park as big as this one. There is a large variety of sites available from tent sites up to big-rigs. Most is dry camping however - the electric sites are by reservation only and are usually reserved months in advance. Most areas do allow generator use however, from ... more

Perfect for exploring the valley. Arrived around 6pm late September, no reservation - paid with the auto machine at the gate and found a site. Loads of spaces available.

“Full hookups and convenient location for exploring Death Valley”

Reviewed May 17, 2017

Overall Rating

Death Valley is huge. It's the biggest national park in the lower 48. Since we wanted to have enough time to explore, we really wanted to stay in the park. Being centrally located made it so we got to see pretty much everything we wanted to in our week there. We arrived on a Wednesday about lunchtime the first week of May, when it's fi... more

“Best place to stay in Death Valley”

Reviewed Apr 14, 2017

Overall Rating

The campsites here are very big. We were fortunate to get a pull-through site with full hook-ups. The site was very long - long enough for our 31 ft 5th wheel and truck. The full hook-ups were a necessity as we traveled there in April and it was exceptionally hot on two days. On one day, we ran the AC throughout the day and night wi... more

“One of the nicer national park campgrounds we've stayed at.”

Reviewed Aug 05, 2016

Overall Rating

Managed to get a last minute cancellation for three nights in early March as the temps were going to be hot. We weren't expecting much but the full hookup sites are really long, angled so you aren't looking at your neighbor, and have a nice view. And we had a useable 3g Verizon signal. We liked it so much I went to the check-in kiosk e... more

“Best in Furnace Creek”

Reviewed Mar 30, 2016

Overall Rating

The Furnace Creek campground is objectively nicer (and even more objectively more expensive) than its paved parking lot brethren to the east (the Sunset campground). There are picnic tables, fire rings, and even a handful of full hookup sites (though they are typically the first to be reserved well in advance, especially during the pop... more

Reviewed Dec 08, 2015

We thought this NPS Campground was fantastic. We stayed in a full hookup site for $21.00 a night with our senior pass, $30.00 without the pass. We stayed in both a Back in site (41) and a Pull thru site (75) and were delighted with the length of both sites. The odd numbered sites 39-53 are very deep but close to your neighbor.
