With well over 100 sites, Furnace Creek Campground Isn‘t to become confused using the Xanterra-run Furnace Creek Resort, and that is adjacent for this federally run campground. Offering the foremost amenities of any federal campground inside the park, Furnace Creek includes a dozen or so sites with full hookups and also the remaining sites are dry camping. Temperatures here can vary greatly. Summer months aren‘t visitor-friendly where nighttime temperatures might dip straight into the 90’s and daytime temperatures are very well over 100. Peak season is winter and spring, and temperatures can drop straight into the low 40’s through the night, with daytime temps around 80. All year-round, star viewing is really a premium during this designated International Dark Sky Park.

The hookup sites make planning all around the weather just a little easier.
Situated next door to Furnace Creek Resort, and across the road from two other fully dry camping federal campground, Sunset and Texas Spring (tents only ), this campground offers a couple of sites with mesquite trees and all sites possess a spectacular view of the encompassing mountains from the valley. Using the bustling, touristy feel from the resort next door, we found this campground a nicer, quieter option, while still having the amenities from the resort (saloon, restaurant, gift shop, golf course, etc. ). The park Visitor Center is easily reached via a walking path and also a gas station is next towards the campground also. Death Valley National Park is that the largest in scale all our National Parks, so having these conveniences nearby is really a plus.
Large group sites and tent only sites can be found also. Site pads and interior roads are paved and level. Some sites are so long as 50 feet, allowing lots of room for any dinghy vehicle when you have one.
