Our first stay in a trailer park. Very pleasant and loaded with bonafide atmosphere. The grounds are right out of movie set and the room was right out of ikea catalogue. Not so comfortable bed but otherwise clean , bright and functional. Nice outdoor deck Porch looking at mountains. Pool was empty but maybe filled as weather warms up. Didn't...

We arrived after dinner and it was so dark, we nearly missed the entrance to this place. The office was closed and dark but there was a number to call which then we were promptly attended to. We had a 'trailer' which housed a living area with a sofa bed, kitchen and dining area, 1 room with a double bed...

We booked a "family unit" (aka mobile home) as a place to crash after exploring nearby Death Valley. We toured the park East to West and ended up here. The town of Olancha is tiny and kind of eerie, and the RV park did look a bit sketchy when we pulled up. How nice to find a clean and comfortable...

Booked a mountain view room with kitchen. Arrived tired and told water heater broken and given sketchy double wide alternative. Property looks horrible. They refunded money but stuck heading south at dark and bad weather. Please choose a different stop.

I stayed here for a night stop over on the way to Yosemite. Upon pulling up I thought we'd turned up to the wrong place as there didn't seem to be anything that looked like accommodation. After checking in we were shown to our room - from the outside it looked like a porta cabin but inside was very pleasantly...

We stayed one night in a queen bed room with refrigerator microwave, cutlery, etc. Room was clean and comfy. We ate in the little restaurant at the park, fresh and tasteful food ($8-$20). There's also a mini shop located in the office of the RV park. This motel is close to the West entrance of Death Valley. Breakfast is served...

Arrived here after a long drive through Death Valley. OK, it's not the swankiest place in the world to stay but if you need a good feed and a rest, it's great. We were greeted by Valerie who was very smiley and welcoming. She told us everything we needed to know and made sure we were set up for the...

Stopped by for one night after drive through Death Valley and greeted by the very friendly Valerie. The Teepee was basic as expected but clean and ideal for our needs and good value compared to local hotel prices, it had wifi and a small outbuilding with shower and toilet. We then went to the Cafe/Restaurant and met Matt the Chef,...
