Overall Rating

Great Death Valley dispersed sites along Furnace Creek Wash Rd. Sites are just off the gravel road starting 1 mile in. 6-8 decent sites very separated and private. We stayed in a site with two medium sized rigs with room for more. Decent road, beautiful high desert valley, and privacy make this a great dispersed site. Don’t expect any cell service as there is none!

Overall Rating

I stayed here for a week and used it as a home base. I had a 33' Motorhome and a car. I saw much of the park. It was Thanksgiving time and a bit chilly but not bad. There were days in the high 60's. Dante's View is nearby and there is cell service there if you need it but this place is great for being isolated. Dark at night and the stars are beautiful!!! Very little traffic on Furnace Creek Wash road this time of year.
Here's a link to my video describing this in more detail:
