I will be in Death Valley for 2 nights in April and I will be alone. I am considering staying one night in Furnace Creek Ranch and the other in Stovepipe Wells. However, a friend of mine mentioned to me that when he was in Death Valley in the summer and he passed by Stovepipe Wells he was glad he did not stay there because he felt the place looked shady/somewhat unsafe. Is this aa common impression? How do people who have stayed there feel about a single traveler sleeping there overnight?
