No words or pictures can describe how beautiful, amazing, and frightful Devil's Golf Course is. It seems like you step out of your car into another planet--the salt craters on the ground seem like they go on forever. It is eerie and beautiful at the same time. Take lots of pictures. P.S. This is in the middle of Death Valley... More

Amazing what Mother Nature does in places. This was truly fascinating. We were all stunned at the 'weirdness' of the place and would recommend a side trip off the main road to see this sight.

What a crazy place! I can't imagine what early pioneers thought when they saw this! Looks pretty barren, but get down and look close at the crystals. A unique beauty!

I found this area to be quite puzzling actually. It's weird and it's beautiful. From far away, it just looks like flat land, but it isn't!

Not much to see but worth the 10 minutes it will take to drive in, check it out, and leave. If you're a photographer you might take longer.

We visited here on Dec 30th. It was a cold morning but it was a good time to visit this area. I'm a geocacher so I wanted to visit the one of the lowest area in the US. Mission accomplished. This is a another must stop point while in Death Valley. It is a slight rough dirt road, look carefully... More

The area is surrounded by these uneven salt/soil formations. So unique. Views all around was really nice.

We stepped out of our car here and felt as though we were stepping out on another planet! A bizarre and fascinating place. Worth seeing on your way through Death Valley.

So this site was disappointing around the parking area. The salt crystals have all been trampled on around the parking area, and there was no detail to observe. So we drove 200 yards back out and decided to stop and take another look. So much better. The rocks all have sharp edges to admire and photography, not trampled by other... More

Not too exciting, but easy to stop at for 5 mins. Very windy in the winter. When dry, the formations are too sharp to walk on for any distance.
