We scouted a site ahead and I managed to get a 45' diesel pusher in there and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Backed it right up close to the edge of the draw. We had plenty of room with tons of space between campsites. We barely had to use our jacks to level up on our particular site. Others looked more...

We stayed here the week of april 10th, spring break for many. We arrived sunday afternoon around 4pm and had a great choice of first-come sites. The campground is about an hour from most sites in the park, but the campsites are much more spacious than any other in the valley—so worth it. Also, the people who came during the...

Located at the north end of Death Valley, this first come first served campground has only about 30 sites and can fill up early depending on time of year. It is close to Scotty's Castle, which is closed right now (2017) for a multi year restoration project, and is also close to Ubehebe Crater as well as the back country...

I first went to Mesquite Springs, on my first trip to Death Valley, when I was a boy of 9, in 1955. Since then, I have been there, camping with 2 College Geology Field trips, and many times since. Mesquite Springs is a great central camping spot in the northern valley to go to Scotty's Castle, Uhebehebe Crater and the...

Smaller campground for those willing to go the extra distance. Quiet and good jumping off point for northern Death Valley attractions. Note, Scotty's Castle, and road, closed until major repairs after floodlng.

Away from the maddening crowds of Furnace Creek, well to the north of StovePipe Wells. Sites tend to fill up in the afternoon. No reservations. Piped water at bathrooms only. A nice, out of the way campground! Near Ubehebe Crater and Scotty's Castle (closed as of Mar 2016)

This is one of the better campsites in Death Valley if you truly want to get away from the crowds at Furnace Creek. It's a long way from any stores or services so make sure you have plenty of gas/food/ice for the cooler. (Scotty's Castle was closed when we camped there in March 2016). There are about 40 sites on...

None of the campgrounds in Death Valley would really qualify as "good," but Mesquite Springs is one of the better choices, especially if you are a tent camper that enjoys solitude. The location prevents most of the Furnace Creek crowd from interrupting, and although more than half of the sites did fill up by dark midweek in February, there is...

It's a first come first serve, we found a good RV pull thru site at the end of the campground. None of the sites are very flat. You have a picnic table, fire pit and some a bbq but that's it. NO HOOKUPS. There is two camp bathrooms with running water and are very clean. There is also a place...

This great campground is at the far north end of Death Valley National Park. As you see on the map it is a long way from just about everything especially markets. Be sure and have all your supplies before you get there. You can buy a few items at Scotty's Castle (by the way a great side trip if you've...
