The brochure says that this area with very jagged rock formations was so named because the terrain is such that only the devil could play here. This location is a quick drive off the main drag & is a quick stop. You can see tourists snapping selfies atop the rocks. Worth a stop on your way to Badwater.

This is a very interesting site. We were fascinated by the up-heaved terrain and salt formations. Unlike some of the other sites, this is an easy drive to reach. We recommend visiting it.

its amazing to see such violent surface caused by nature. Park service lets you walk all over getting real close to the landscape is just wow! You will have to drive on gravel road for a small distance to get to this place

This view is absolutely amazing close to sunset. The little bushes radiate a golden glow, surrounded by deep shadow. WOW!

This place is a little out of the way and a short drive on the unpaved road. But really worth going. The salt crystal for,actions upclose are beautiful to observe and one can only be in awe of them. Be careful while walking on them as you may get hurt (they are really hard).

This place is like no other on earth. And we were the only ones there early one morning, making it especially impactful. The kids enjoyed jumping from rock to rock. Definitely go walk around, as you can't fully appreciate it from the parking lot.

Aptly named Devil’s Golf Course is 40 miles of barren landscape with large, crusted, and serrated salt formations. It is located about a mile down dirty and dusty road. These crusted rock formations are the mineral deposits left behind when 2,000-4,000 years ago a lake dried up. You are able to walk on the saltpan yourself. A great place for... More

Aptly named area as only the devil could play golf here. We mere mortals can enjoy the strange beauty of the salt formation.

We went in July and it was so hot, we basically hopped out of the car, snapped a couple pictures and got back into the AC. It was def cool to do as part of the Artist's Drive.

I've seen many geological wonders, but nothing quite like this vista of chunks of salt. Just a quick detour off the highway.
