“Basic camping in a fantastic National Park”

Reviewed Dec 03, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed at Stovepipe Wells in Death Valley the first 3 days in December. Our friends arrived ahead of us and were told by the camp host that we didn't have to pay since the pay station was broken. The next day we confirmed it with a park ranger, so even though the campground is normally $10/night, our entire stay was free. Stovepi... more

“Now with cell service!”

Reviewed Mar 01, 2017

Overall Rating

For those of us who like no reservations and first-come first-served campgrounds, the two best campground options in Death Valley are the Sunset Campground in Furnace Creek, or Stovepipe Wells Campground in Stovepipe Wells. Stovepipe Wells was a non-starter for us in winter 2016 because there was no cell tower, but as of winter 2017... more

“Just a big parking lot.”

Reviewed Feb 17, 2017

Overall Rating

The pluses - it's convenient to the attractions in the northern part of the park,close to a general store and gas station, has flush toilets and a dump station. The cons - it's just a big flat gravel parking lot and has overly generous generator hours. We camped here to be closer to some of the things we wanted to see and do in this... more

“Good location to explore North Death Valley”

Reviewed Jan 10, 2017

Overall Rating

This was a good spot for us to camp to go explore Ubehebe Crater and the Racetrack in Death Valley. Even though these spots where still over an hour drive away. If you want to go to Scottys Castle the road has been washed out and isn't set to reopen to 2019. Nothing to special about this camp ground just a big open lot with at least 10... more

“Death Valley dry camping”

Reviewed Mar 27, 2016

Overall Rating

Stovepipe Wells campground is directly adjacent to the Stovepipe Wells Village that offers lodging, fuel, a General Store, restaurant, saloon and gift shop. It's definitely one of the bigger outposts with the most accommodations in the valley. There are 14 full hook-up sites that are operated as part of the Village. The 190 site cam... more
