Here is this resort 190' below sea level surrounded by desert, sand dunes and mountains in the distance. What an awe inspiring view, oh with 106 degrees in the shade on the early of May. The resort is dated, the rooms are a little better, the pool is very large and welcomed in the heat. Front desk clerk was very... More

April 16 - 20, 2015 We made reservations at Fiddler's Campground for tent camping prior to arriving. I apparently did not research this campsite before hand or we would not have considered staying here. The "campground" is basically a parking lot with gravel. One side has tree's (the 50' space) and the other side is all day sun (40'). The... More

Ok, the price is right! The campground is a gravel parking lot. There is a three stall unisex toilet near the golf course, but the showers are over by the swimming pool and the hotel. A very long walk, and there are only 2 showers there, so be prepared to wait or stay dirty. As a camper you get access... More

I really enjoyed staying here as the area surrounding the campground is stunning. We just went a short walk from the campground to watch the sunset and it was the most beautiful sunset of my life! It was so still and peaceful and had this other-worldly feel to the place (this goes for all of Death Valley) We even saw... More

Death Valley to my surprise has a lot more to offer in sightseeing than just driving thru. Two days is the minimum amount of time I would suggest you spend but you could really fill three. The problem is that accommodations are not many and the few offered are really pricey. The cheapest is this one but don't expect luxury,... More

We recently stayed at this resort and my personal opinion of this place is far from a resort. The building we stayed in was like walking into a sick ward in a hospital. The building is in serious need of an overhaul. It smelled of death. We were grateful that our room didn't smell the same. All the tenants were... More

Furnace Creek Resort is the cheeper option to stay in Death Valley, you need to pay around 200 dollars per night for the room whereas Furnace Inn is double the price. However, if you are keen to spend time in Death Valley this is a great place to stay. It is close to all important views such as Zabriskie Point... More

This C.G. is NOT as advertised! Camping spots are very close to each other with some shade on only one side of the C.G.; the 3 flush toilets were Unisex in a very flimsy building -- trust me ladies, you don't want to share the restroom with males other than your husband -- or you could walk over to use...

We stayed for 2 nights in the campground at Furnace Creek Ranch which has full hookups. No picnic tables. There are two showers available to guests at the pool, which were always very busy in the afternoon, so there was a wait. BTW it's quite a walk to get there. The pool was nice, the WiFi worked most of the... More

My husband tried to book two nights through the Xantera (the concessionaire for this property) website. It showed nothing available at the Ranch or Fiddlers Creek campground on Sunday. He booked Monday night at the Ranch (where they have hook-ups) and when he tried to book Tuesday, the website crashed. He called and found out that there were sites available... More
