“Nice Campground, But No Showers”
Reviewed 17 June 2007

The campground is well-maintained and accomodates both RVs and tents. Some sites are only for tents, and if you plan on tent camping, you definitely want to get one of these tent-only sites because most of them have small trees under which to pitch your tent. This provides a decent amount of shade. Tent campers should be aware that the ground is extremely dry and hard and rather rocky, so they may wish to pack some padding to put under their bedroll. There are quite a few sites geared toward RVs that are just in the middle of barren soil, so there is not much relief from the sun in them. There is an appropriate number of outhouses (divided into male and female) around the campground; they all have sinks, but there are no showers due to the lack of water. Fires are permitted, but on the first night that we were there, staff instructed us to put our fire out due to high winds. If you plan on having a fire, be sure to bring wood, though, as there is none for sale anywhere close by. The campground is in an excellent location in an oasis of sorts, right in the middle of Death Valley National Park. The park headquarters is nearby, as is a small restaurant and saloon. We visited in the spring and enjoyed beautiful weather, but be aware that the temperatures are dangerously high in the summer months.

Spent night here two weeks ago - was very basic but very close to good Death Valley visitors centre and we were able to use the pool/ showers for $3. It was pretty spectacular as someone living in London looking at all the stars whilst on my back swimming away at 11pm. At dawn the mad birds woke me up but was lovely seeing sunrise and looking over the hills.
