Furnace Creek Campground in Death Valley is centrally located in this expansive park. We found the sites to be good sized, with options for locating a tent. The fire rings were new with adjustable grill. The rest rooms were clean with large kitchen sinks and drain boards located nearby. The only lacking amenity showers. However we did find showers available... More

A big site but not a shady one and some of the pitches are a distance from any washrooms etc. there was just one restaurant open and the service was very patchy when we were there. This is a good base to explore from and worth getting up early for the half hour drive to watch the sunrise at Dante'a... More

There are places that you can pitch even a very large tent that are completely surrounded by Salt Cedar trees, so they remain shady and protected from the wind. Some are also very very close to the visitors' center with its better water and better bathrooms (and the VC has free wifi from 10 AM to 3 PM). A short... More

Stayed in the RV parking with full hooks ups. Very old RV and camp but they have kept it up. We stayed two nights and saw most of DV by car. The weather was perfect and the crowds were not too bad for President's Day weekend. It is definitely a different place well worth the trip. There is loads to... More

Furnace Creek Campground is an ideal location for exploring other parts of Death Valley. Even an early morning or evening walk along the Airport Road that runs next to the campground offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains and south towards Badwater Basin. The drive-in and walk-in tent sites are the best sites since many offer shade. As others have... More

Furnace Creek was even better than we expected. Very quiet after 10 p.m., clean, convenient restrooms, and close to many sights and services. Campground staff was very friendly.. The stars here are amazing!

Not what I was expecting as far as "camping" goes. We had a tent camp reserved, but unfortunately it was right off the main little road in the campgrounds, accross from the dumpsters, not much privacy, and it was literally just a firepit, metal bench and gravel. Luckily we pitched the tent in some trees for some privacy and put... More

Campground gets 4 stars but the store and restaurant get only 1. The food is expensive, so-so and the service was terrible. The female server was constantly talking to her friend and the minority staff member had to do all the work. Only the basics for sale in the store with anything else a hundred miles away. Make sure to... More

We are tent campers that have stayed several times at this campground. It is a highly developed and compact campground as could be expected in a National Park (think Yosemite). Death Valley NP is a breathtaking park. This campground is centrally located to many areas you will want to visit in the park-- Badwater, Dante's View, Atrist's Palette, Devil's Golf... More

After several trips to Death Valley over many years we tried Furnace Creek Campground. The Park Service has done a great job of providing full hookup sites that are not crowded together and have great bathrooms available. Restaurants are within walking distance if you want to over pay for less than average food. We showed up w/out reservations and were... More
