We stayed at the Furnace Creek campground for three nights in mid-November in site 150 on the walk-in side. This site is fairly large and at the top of the loop, so you aren't sandwiched in with other campers. It doesn't have many trees, which was fine for our stay because it wasn't very windy. The biggest drawbacks to this campground are no showers and the fire pits are very shallow so they are hard to cook on. For $5 per person you can use the showers and pool at the Furnace Creek Ranch - we did this one night and our kids all went swimming, so it was worth the money but sort of a hassle as the FC Ranch is not walking distance (at least not carrying towels, a change of clothes, and shower stuff). The plus is it was only $18 per night.
