This was our 5th camping visit to Death Valley (Furnace Creek). We stayed in this campground two weeks which is the limit for this particular campground, however you may stay up to 1 month in one of several other Park campgrounds. This year some of the sites have sewer and water hook-ups. Electricity is currently locked as the Government hasn't decided what to charge for this service. The sites are narrow and many have fire pits close to the next space, so that smoke blows in neighbor windows. Most spaces have wonderful views of the park. A visit to Death Valley National Park offers a diverse hiking and learning experience. Park Rangers offer daily walks, hikes and/or talks specific to park history and geology. The Park has been designated as a "dark sky" viewing area which means one is afforded starlight views beyond compare! We saw multiple planets, constellations and the Milky Way during our visit. Plan ahead and make reservations early if you want to stay in one of the serviced sites at Furnace Creek Campground as these are popular and go quickly. Gas is very expensive (over $5 gal) in the Park so fill up in Parumph,NV or Beatty,, NV.
