Started out ok. We got there somewhat early and the campground was fairly empty. So we picked a place away from all the RV’s and set up our tent. Then people started rolling in and we became very aware of how close together the sites really are. This campground is extremely loud, with some sort of industrial noise that started up at like 4 am, road noise, clanging dumpsters due to wind, and then all the noise of your neighbors. Bathrooms don’t have soap - um, Covid? Dumpsters were about a half a mile away. This place kind of sucked.
Very nice campground run by park service. Cement pads some with hookups. Picnic tables at each site. Very warm in may, campground about 25 percent full. Was a good spot to camp in our travato as we did not need hookups. Most spots had some shade.
The Furnace Creek area has many different areas of interest including the Furnace Creek Visitor Center, the Borax Museum at Furnace Creek, the nearby Harmony Borax Works, the Furnace Creek Inn (The Ranch at Death Valley), Furnace Creek Golf Course, the General Store and the Oasis Restaurant. The $50 million dollar renovation (still in progress) has given it a new facelift
This is one of the most accessible campground. There is a lot of space between tent sites and it is close to the visitor center. We booked the tent only site which provides a grill but no electricity. There is a common restroom and drinking water facility in the campground. The tent floor could be little rocky and not super smooth. A good quality sleeping bag with decent cushion between ground and person is advisable.
In October 2019 we went to Death Valley State Park in our MH we tried to stay at Stovepipe Wells but they were all booked. We continued down the road about 40 miles and came to Furnace Creek Campground , this campground is extremely well maintained and managed. We stayed here for two nights, the sites were very large and roomy we were not cramped at all. Highly recommend this campground to stay in Death Valley
