Depending on what you do, this park is great. Zabriske Point doesn't take long at all, so that is a must-do. The twenty mule team canyon one way drive is also on the side of the road so if you are okay with a dirt road accompanied with mountains if a sand/rock mixture do that. Ubehebe Crater is very fun...

I hadn't been to Death Valley for more than 40 years, when I camped a couple of nights here on the cheap. We came back and stayed a the Furnace Creek Inn, several steps above for accommodations. And glad we did, because the weather was very very hot for mid-April. The park has many amazing things to see and fabulous,... More

I was impressed at how little this park has been touched by man, compared to other parks. Plan your trip ahead, and learn the area because there is no service in most of the park. Take one of the maps at the information desk. I recommend filling up the gas tank every chance you get, to make sure you don't... More

I had been to Death Valley once before and upon my return trip recently really realized how much this area has to offer the visitor. The wildflowers were in magnificent bloom -- so many different types and colors -- definitely a photographer's delight! We were with a group of jeepers so went on many trails with our jeeps. The geology... More

My wife and I left Vegas and headed for San Francisco, we planned a day in Death Valley as part of our trip. What a beautiful wonder of nature. Like my title says words and pictures can never express the beauty and massive scale of this natural wonder - you must see it in person. The changes in the landscape... More

I'd wanted to see Death Valley for years and even before I actually arrived i knew it wasn't going to be a disappointment. Google Maps has a good view from the junction of Beatty Road and Daylight Pass road, and being there in person gives you a start of an idea as to how huge this place really is. At... More

We spent spring break at Death Valley and loved it! It was amazing to just stand a look around to see the different aspects of the park. Around every turn was something different to see and explore. We stayed in Beatty, NV and drove over every day. The drive isn't bad as ghost towns are located on the way to... More

Words can't even begin to describe how amazing this National park is. My son and I took a break from our trip to Las Vegas, rented a car, and drove the 2.5 hours to the most breath taking sights I have seen. (and after 20 years in the US Navy, that's saying something). We went on March 31st of this... More

Death Valley is sooo large, and there is plenty to see. The mountains are beautiful, the desert floor is fascinating, Badwater is a must see given it's status as the lowest spot in the US, the sand dunes are very cool, the pupfish are amazing, the canyons are great for hiking, biking is excellent! It would take weeks to experience... More
