We always camp at Sunset for Death Valley 49"s Death Valley Days. We have 5 RV's camping there and it is such fun. The campground is clean with water and several dumps, There is a lot to do and Sunset is a good place to set up camp and then explore the area

Sunset Campground and Texas Spring Campground are off the same road, where Texas Spring is a nicer campground for tents. But since it was full, we ended up at Sunset Campground, which is a big open space that is catered more toward trailers, but we can set up tents in the slot. Because the place is meant for trailers, there... More

We spent two nights camping here in March during a week-long hiking trip through DVNP and Joshua Tree NP. Like other reviewers have said, it's essentially a gravel parking lot with marked spaces for each site and a few bathroom and trash facilities scattered about. The campground is first-come-first-served, but we had no problem finding a spot either night even... More

"Boondocked" here for 2 nights in an RV over the Valentine week. The camp ground has more than 250 sites. The place is pretty barren which made it easy to maneuver and pull through. The ground is rocky, not a problem for an RV, but I am not sure I would do tent camping like a few people I saw.... More

I've been in this park in July 2015. This is nice park. Ofcouse you can't compare this park and Zion. However, I found many beautiful places here. In addition, I visited many points and made a video about this park. If you want to see it, go to the link below. https://youtu.be/GPWyx4hV04g If you have any questions, send me email... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights in Sunset Campground at Furnace Creek and driving around to the various sites. There were a lot of things we couldn't take in, so we will return and do those another time. Badwater, Salt Creek, Ubehebe Crater and Artist's Palette were our highlights. The campground was boring, but typical for the situation. We were... More

The views are great, but you must enjoy them from a parking lot. There are no fire pits or picnic tables. There are restrooms and the location near Furnace Creek Villiage is convenient. It can be hot and quite dusty. Only alternative at Furnace Creek Village this spring (2012) for RVs as Furnace Creek is closed for repair.
