We stayed for one night. It would have been better if we could get outside and cook some dinner, it was just so windy!! There are no showers here, toilets are fine. There is a communal sink to wash up and for $14 it is affordable.

I camped here the last half of October. So temps at night went down to 60. While checking out another campground and NPS employee asked me why I wasn't considering Texas Spring. I told her I'd just chosen one thinking times best. Since I was in a tent she recommended this one saying there wouldn't be any generators and it... More

The campground itself wasn't bad. There were fire pits with table and bench at every site and a communal restroom nearby. No showers here but the Furnace Creek Inn offered the use of their pool AND showers for only $5/person. I was definitely grateful for the pool after running around a windy desert all day! Unfortunately, the winds were terrible... More

There are few sites with shade, we found one with morning and mid day shade. The campground was quiet in the middle of September, but we had the customary group of knobs come in at 2 am and set up after taking a few laps of the campground, not unusual in National Parks. The park was quiet aside from that.... More

Lucky, lucky us. We rolled into Texas Spring before noon on a Saturday and jumped into a campsite just minutes after it had been vacated. The rest of the campground was full as this was during the spring break season of 2014. The guy camping next to us said that he'd been coming here for years and had never seen... More

This was our first choice campground, and arriving mid-morning on a weekend during the high season (in March), we were thrilled to get a site! The location was ideal for our needs. It is close to Furnace Creek Ranch to re-stock on supplies, get gas, or go over to the visitors center. Yet the campground was removed enough from a... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in April 2013. The campsite is on the valley floor and the surrounding rock formations are GORGEOUS, particularly at sunset while we were making dinner. There is no firewood around so you have to bring your own. The bathrooms were nice and there were large outdoor sinks to wash your dishes... More

3 of us in our own campers met at Texas Spring Campground and we stayed there 4 1/2 days March 20-24th. Not my ideal camping spot as I like to be off the beaten path a bit. It was way to crowded for my liking and people camped right next to you seeing and hearing everything you did. During the... More

We didn't even bother to look at Furnace Creek because we were looking for something smaller. We stayed mid-week but still got one of the last sites. It is a nice campground and even has running water for cleaning and drinking.

We hadn't planned to stay at Texas Springs but when we visited in October the other two campsites in Furnace Creek were closed. But we were happy with Texas Springs and even being the only one open it was still reasonably quiet. The toilets were clean, and you get a nice view from your campsite. We enjoyed the fire pits,...
