Stovepipe Wells is a nice little town and we'll worth a visit. It's almost certain that you will pass through it as there are so few centres of population, it and Furnace Creek are about the only two. Nice little visitors centre that tells you about the borax mines, the rolling dunes and the various ghost towns. The people in... More

Our diesel 4x4 camper van blew it's oil cooler near Stovepipe so we eaked our way into Stovepipe camp ground by 9 pm. They had showers and pool access for $4, nirvana!! We took a camp spot in pitch dark near the back. In the morning we found ourselves in a giant parking lot backing up to the Sandune's and... More

We have stayed at Stovepipe Wells for several days almost every spring for many years. It's far less frantic than Furnace Creek and a wonderful setting in which to watch the sun rise over the sand dunes. This year, in addition to our usual awe at the natural beauty and the added bonus of a full moon, we were treated... More

If you need gas, get it here. It's more expensive in Panamint Springs, or Death Valley Junction or Shoshone.

We ate lunch at the Stovepipe Wells Saloon and it was soo much better than the Saloon and only non buffet option in Furnace Creek. Hubby and I shared the chicken quesadilla and a salad. It was tasty, filling and frankly a lot better than the pizza we had at the Furnace Creek Saloon, a day earlier, where our options... More

Did not stay here as the park was full. After driving around for a few days and stopping here twice, this would be my choice of places to stay. Centrally located, accommodations looked good, some nice shops and of course a saloon with good food. Close to many sites and makes seeing the places like the crater easier to get... More

This a refreshing modern touch, stores were well stocked with a wide range of gift items, and staff was pleasant, realizing that it has to be a challenge getting workers at such a remote, harsh place.

We make it a point to stay here whenever we are in Death Valley NP. The rooms are comfortable, affordable and quiet. The restaurant servers good food and the portions are good sized. The Village staff are friendly and will answer your questions. This IS the place to stay in the central area of the Park.

The store at Stovepipe Wells offers a huge variety of souvenirs, but almost no food.
