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...

Good camping spot. Spaces are big with fire pits. It is not a huge campground which we liked. The bathrooms are nice and clean and do have flush toilets. There are no showers, but between the two restrooms is an area with a large utility sink for washing dishes or whatever. It was a quiet place and is prefectly attuned...

We stayed here during Memorial Day weekend. There were about 7 campsites occupied that night. Campsites were spacious and all had a fire pit and table. Some campers said the night before rained and was very windy. We saw a little wind that died down after sunset and was very mild all night. No noisy campers and everyone was polite....
