Great Cheap Accomodation - Sunset

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 22, 2008

This campground is centrally located in Death Valley National Park. It has basic amenities of water and toilets, and that's about it. But you're camping, so what's the big deal?

It is much less expensive than the Village nearby or other hotels, costing about $14 a night. You can pitch a tent, cook your dinner at the fire pit in each site, sit on the camp bench, and look at the splendor around you. Besides, you'll be spending most of your time out exploring, so don't worry about it!

A Centrally Located Campground

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

Sunset Campground is open from October 15 to April 15 on a first come, first served basis. With no trees to provide shade or privacy, this is not a very pretty campground by our standards. It is more like a huge gravel parking lot with some restrooms (no showers) spaced through out the parking lot. Located 190 feet below sea level, this campground has 1000 tent/RV sites. There are no hook ups, but water and a dump station are available within the campground. Be warned, however, that the water tastes awful, and the price for bottled water is very high, so come with your own supply of drinking water. This is a remote park, so you are pretty much trapped, and will have to pay their asking price for goods as it is way too far to drive somewhere else. There are also no picnic tables, no cooking grills, and no fires are allowed. We made the best of it by choosing an outside spot and parking with our front door facing out across the desert, so that we could sit outside and view the desert and hills rather than a parking lot full of trailers.

Unique Quality: Across the street from the developed Furnace Creek area you can easily walk to the post office, gift shop, two restaurants, and the Borax Museum.

Directions: Located in the Furnace Creek area, across from the developed Furnace Creek Ranch along highway 190.
