This place was amazing beautiful and just what we needed. Full hookups for our RV and a firepit for all the delicious cooking. The only thing we wish we knew ahead of time was where the general store was to get wood for the fire. We wasted a perfectly good night without wood :( We had fantastic weather not to hot at all so no need for AC or heat. highly recommend this site if your staying in death valley with an RV. Also walking distance to the Furnace Creek Visitor Center!

We camped at Furnace Creek for 3 nights with our Aliner pop-up camper, and enjoyed our visit. The sites are not that impressive - concrete slabs, some of them quite close together, with very little shrubbery for privacy - but out of the campgrounds we saw in Death Valley, this was the nicest. The location is beautiful - watching the sunrise over the surrounding mountain range (or the multitude of stars at night) was gorgeous. The bathrooms were clean, and many of the most popular attractions in the park are nearby. We purchased day passes at The Ranch to allow for access to their pool and showers (which was a bit steep at $14 per person). All in all, we were pleasantly surprised!

We stayed in site 137 (tent only) for a couple of days. It was a nice site and not a long walk to the car. There was a nice amount of space between sites in this area. There’s no shade at this site though, so be aware of that. Check-In: Kiosk is open 9-4:30, so we didn’t even check in for a few days because we arrived at 7p and were gone hiking from 7a-5p the next day. The Visitor Center (open 8-5) did validate our annual park pass and we put a copy of our reservation on the site post after the ranger left us a note. It worked out fine but something to be aware of. Other than the note, we saw a ranger once in the campground our entire stay and never saw them at trail heads or anywhere else in the park. Bathrooms: clean and spider free, which is huge in my world. There’s no soap though, which is odd for a flush toilet / sink bathroom. There is sanitizer at the door. There are large sinks outside the bathroom to use for dishwashing, which fill with food and then don’t drain, so they’re kind of gross later in the evening. Try to get the loose food off your dishes before using that sink. The stars were great to see from our site. We thought it was a better view at our camp site than at the Borax location down the road that the Visiter Center worker recommended. Campground was quite and everyone was low key and friendly. Overall, a nice place to stay.

I loved being able to see the Milky Way from our campsite! And I love the desert! We unfortunately had an extremely rude camper next to us on our 2nd night. He was playing guitar plugged into an AMP! So rude! You couldn't even hear the person sitting next to you! PLEASE, PLEASE leave your music, barking dogs, etc. at home! Nature is to be enjoyed quietly. The campground's sites are extremely close to each other. More than most National Parks. Restaurants were outrageously expensive! As was gasoline. But we still enjoyed our stay!

Started out ok. We got there somewhat early and the campground was fairly empty. So we picked a place away from all the RV’s and set up our tent. Then people started rolling in and we became very aware of how close together the sites really are. This campground is extremely loud, with some sort of industrial noise that started up at like 4 am, road noise, clanging dumpsters due to wind, and then all the noise of your neighbors. Bathrooms don’t have soap - um, Covid? Dumpsters were about a half a mile away. This place kind of sucked.

Very nice campground run by park service. Cement pads some with hookups. Picnic tables at each site. Very warm in may, campground about 25 percent full. Was a good spot to camp in our travato as we did not need hookups. Most spots had some shade.

The Furnace Creek area has many different areas of interest including the Furnace Creek Visitor Center, the Borax Museum at Furnace Creek, the nearby Harmony Borax Works, the Furnace Creek Inn (The Ranch at Death Valley), Furnace Creek Golf Course, the General Store and the Oasis Restaurant. The $50 million dollar renovation (still in progress) has given it a new facelift

This is one of the most accessible campground. There is a lot of space between tent sites and it is close to the visitor center. We booked the tent only site which provides a grill but no electricity. There is a common restroom and drinking water facility in the campground. The tent floor could be little rocky and not super smooth. A good quality sleeping bag with decent cushion between ground and person is advisable.

In October 2019 we went to Death Valley State Park in our MH we tried to stay at Stovepipe Wells but they were all booked. We continued down the road about 40 miles and came to Furnace Creek Campground , this campground is extremely well maintained and managed. We stayed here for two nights, the sites were very large and roomy we were not cramped at all. Highly recommend this campground to stay in Death Valley

This is one of the most popular campground in Death Valley National Park and this was our third time staying at this campground. Getting a campsite can be tricky since reservations are taken three to six months ahead. Most campsites are basic with only a picnic table and a fire pit. Tent camping isn't ideal as most tent sites are not located close to available parking. Restroom facilities are clean (somewhat) and well stocked with TP. The best aspect of this campground is the location. Within walking distance is the visitors center and the Ranch which as a general store and showers ($10) for a day pass to the
