“Great dispersed camping in a different part of Death Valley NP”

Reviewed Feb 06, 2019

Overall Rating

Lee Flat is described by the park as "the finest Joshua Tree forest in the park", and while it's not as dense as some found in Mojave National Preserve, it's still a magical place to camp.

Access is via the Saline Valley road, which is good-condition gravel to this point. [It becomes rougher as it climbs into the Nelson Mountains beyond.] One caveat: as of early 2019, there's a deep rut half a mile before reaching this campground - take care! The road is surprisingly busy, probably because of the access it provides to other areas of the park, but quiet at night.

The site itself is quite large (easily big enough for several rigs) and level-ish; we had no trouble getting level with just a bit of jockeying. There's a stone fire ring here but please don't use it; Death Valley doesn't allow campfires in the backcountry.
