I am a novice RV camper, so keep that in mind. The price was very cheap $16 and if you are a senior with a park pass it's an $8 bargain. But u get what You pay for. It was noisy but that was because u had to sleep with the windows open and the neighbors partied into the wee hours...so no quiet hours there. Nice bathrooms with sinks, free water, no reservations, no generators.

I'm rating this 3 stars solely because of view and location within park. This review is based on tent camping my whole life. Second, most of the campgrounds at DEVA are horrible compared to other parks. Yes, there are some decent sites w/ small trees in the lower loop but these are first to go. The upper loop is a large gravel parking lot w/ picnic tables uniformly spaced. Reminds me of old drive-in movie theaters and the sites are too close to each other (~5 m). Probably ok for RVs and trailers. The other disappointing part was not being able to enjoy the night sky due to light pollution in the campground. From RVs to campers w/ bright white headlamps all over; use a red light or at least low power.

Stayed here for a few nights in late February. See my previous review for more detailed comments. Just found this photograph that my husband took which gives a nice overhead view of the campground. It looks like there isn't much privacy, but there was plenty of room between sites, clean washrooms, good "washing up" facilities and garbage collection. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: To get a spot get there mid morning as campers are leaving.

This is my #2 favorite paved road accessible campground in Death Valley. It is so conveniently located near all the Furnace Creek attractions, the sites are fairly large and some even offer shrubs and stunted trees that give some shade. The bathrooms are well maintained, with large sink areas for washing areas and filling water bottles. And because generators are not allowed, you don't get the long-stay big rigs here, it is a nice quiet true camping experience.

If you're staying at Texas Springs campground, you get both a nice sunrise as well as a great sunset view. And it's only a short drive to Zawiskie Point for an awesome sunset, or go further east on 190 to Dante's View for the most amazing vista you will ever want to see, the "long view" of the valley with the sun setting behind Telescope Peak.

Don't miss out on the $5 per day use of the pool at Furnace Creek, it is a wonderful, deep swimming pool with little chemical treatment since local warm spring water is used and then recycled out to the golf course. The restaurants are Furnace Creek are all quite good, and the main Visitor Center is there also and is excellent with displays, movie and helpful rangers and volunteers.

Get a spot in the first, A Loop, if you can, it is the nicest. The upper loop is less shaded and more prone to large RV campers.

Nearby is hiking at Golden Canyon and Gower Gulch, the Salt Creek interpretative trail with Desert Pupfish viewing, as well as Harmony Borax Works historic displays, the Devil's Golf Course, Natural Bridge, Artist's Palette, and Badwater Viewpoint. This is the location to be for most of Death Valley's attractions.

Room Tip: This is a campground, not a hotel. Best spots are LOOP A, the first loop. No generator use in any loops.

I arrived to Texas Springs Campground around 4:00 on a Tuesday. I thought for sure there wouldn't be a spot left, but I was pleased to find a great semi shaded spot on the upper loop (rvs-no generators, and tents allowed) Campsite 93 was a perfect spot to set up camp and enjoy nightly sunsets. I was steps away from the restrooms (flush toilets), large sink, water pipe, and pay station ($16 a night). There are climbable hills all around to enjoy a nice sunset or more views of Death Valley.

The ground is rough gravel, so if you're sleeping in a tent, make sure you have a way of getting your stakes into the ground. I used some heavy rocks near by to keep my tent in place, and that worked just fine.

Since I was alone, I chose this site because I was very close to the Furnace Creek Visitor Center and other amenities (general store, gas station). It was also close to some of the trails I had on my list to see (Golden Canyon, Badwater Basin, Natural Bridge).

Overall, a great experience, and I'm looking forward to returning!
