“a good base camp for exploring Death Valley”

This is a well-developed national park site that provides a good base camp for exploring Death Valley, especially for newcomers and families. The nearby visitors center includes Death Valley Museum and offers maps and suggestions for hikes and drives in this unique wildland. This camp offers shady sites, a rarity in Death Valley, but they are packed close together and noise may be a factor when the campground is full. It’s open all year, but keep in mind that the daytime summer temperatures commonly exceed 120°F, making this area virtually uninhabitable in the summer. The elevation is 190 feet below sea level. There are 136 sites for tents or RVs up to 35 feet (no hookups), and two group sites for up to 10 vehicles and 40 people each. Picnic tables and fire rings are provided. Drinking water, flush toilets, dump station, and evening ranger programs are available. Campfires are not permitted during the summer. Some facilities are wheelchair-accessible. Leashed pets are permitted at campsites only.

This is a great campground. Some of the sites have trees that you can pitch your tent under for shade. You can use the Furnace Creek Ranch pool and shower for $5 a day.
