This campground was pretty full when we arrived. We saw 2 porta-Johns and assumed that was the extent of the facilities. Later on in the evening I "discovered" a bathroom with 1 or 2 functioning toilets and a funky shower. We did luck out with our campsite as it was near the border between the campground and the desert. The... More

We rented a tent cabin for two nights. Some holes in the tent but other than that it was clean and had two cots in it. The men's restrooms only had one toilet working so there were often people waiting in line although there were a couple of portable toilets. Wifi was not working either. They have in nice restaurant,... More

We choose Panamint Springs because of the location (in the park, but not in the fee area), and because of the prize. Resort is definitely a bit of a stretch. We rented a tent cabin, which was actually very nice. The cots inside were clean, and as comfortable as you would expect cots to be. The tent itself was sound,... More

Don’t expect much. The rooms, mine anyway, are in need of major repairs. But for my needs it was a clean bed, shower (not so clean, see photo) and a restaurant where I needed them. If you don’t mind driving another 50 miles Lone Pine has several better places to choose from. Please note that there is a ceiling fan... More

We booked the small 2 bedroom "cabin" behind the restaurant. When we called to make the reservation, and in the followup letter we got, they were pretty frank about the inconsistent wifi/lack of tv or phone reception, etc., and the pictures spelled out the lack of ambiance. But it was by far the cheapest accommodations in Death Valley park, so... More

I'm currently travelling around the SW USA visiting many of the big sights and national parks. Death Valley was my first stop after a few days acclimatising in LA. Panamint Springs Resort was the first accommodation I booked and I had high hopes given the cost per night and the location (which is great for Darwin springs). Unfortunately I was... More

Given the costs in the area the Panamint Springs Campground was good value. For a bicycle and tent camping it was about $10 and this included a shower. The pitch was not the best as the area is very rocky but that is just nature of the landscape. The communal toilets/shower were fairly clean but not the best. When I... More

We chose this place because it was reservable and had flush toilets and showers. The campground had 75+ sites. It was full over Presidents' Day weekend. Probably 200 -300 campers. The men's room had one functioning toilet. The urinal was out of order for the 5 days we were there. There were 2 showers. Same story in women's bathroom --... More

A great place! This place is great for what it is not, no swimming pool, TV, Phone service, poor wifi. It’s off the grid. There is no place for 60 or 70 miles in any direction. That being said it provides a great place to set out and explore Panamint Valley and Darwin. Great food and cold beer, clean and... More
