We stayed two nights at Furnace Creek Campground at campsite #49 in an RV. This is a handicap site with full hookups. It was wonderful. The site was completely level and this was one of the first times we did not have to use blocks to level our RV. The site was paved and because it was handicap the area with the picnic table and fire ring were also paved. The campground was full Saturday night and some of the tent sites appeared to be a little close together. However, it didn't seem to be an issue for the people staying there.

This is the desert for there was not a lot of shade trees. We found that the way our site was positioned we got some morning sun, but by the afternoon our site had plenty of shade and we never had to use our awning. I did not use any of the public bathrooms so I cannot comment on them. I did notice that there were several dish washing facilities scattered around the park. The cool thing about the campground is that it is within walking distance to the visitor center.

I noticed in some of the previous reviews that people seem to confuse the Furnace Creek Campground (which is a public campground) with the campground at the resort. I think the private campground is called Fiddler's Campground at the Oasis at Furnace Creek. They are two separate campgrounds and I wanted to make sure people who read the reviews for future reservations know that. If you can get full hookups at the public campground it is well worth doing so.

Room tip: Sites around the rim of the campground seem to have more room.

Good stay and very nice place. We stayed at one of the multi floor motel buildings they have. Good stay but older unit so there was a little neighbor noise. Overall good experience at this location.

Prepare for a long check in process. Not really sure why it had to take so long to give me the keys to a prepaid room but whatever.

This basic campground is centrally located in the sprawling Death Valley National Park. Toilets (no showers) and potable water available. Right next to the main ranger station, and close to a gas station, you’re positioned on the main road (190) between the Scotty’s castle/racetrack area and the zabriskie point/badwater basin area. Some low trees between sites give you a bit of privacy.

Our first stay at Furnace Creek (campsite #81). Our stay was in early January. The weather was nearly perfect - in the 70s during the day and a mild 50 at night. The site offers clean restrooms and even a place to wash dishes with drinkable water. The only thing missing was a shower.

We brought our van, but this place seems well suited to the RV and trailer crowd with nice long parking spaces that back right into your campsite (although not in all cases). Each site comes equipped with a sizable table and fire pit. Our site was easily comfortable for the two families we had sharing it.

During our stay, it was very crowded as every campsite seemed occupied. While I didn't really mingle with our fellow campers, every one seemed to be enjoying the amenities and rules. We really enjoyed our time. My only nit-pick was people using their portable generators, which would disturb the peacefulness of the surroundings, but in fairness, they limited their usage to normal times of the day.

Since we arrived late in the evening we first picked Sunset Campground just down the road. We experienced a sleepless night since it is located on a plain and the wind pushed constantly against the vehicle. The next day, however, we discovered Furnace Creek Campground and immediately switched places. It offers scrubs and trees and is generally much better looked after. We liked it so much that we decided to stay another night.
