8 Reviews of Stovepipe Wells - Death Valley National Park
Nice in winter

Not a pretty campground, just a gravel parking lot, but not crowded in winter when the weather is very pleasant. Can be very windy at night. Only $12/night. Walk to nice shops and restaurants. Bathrooms clean. Nice view of valley. Mostly RV sites. One row of tent camp sites with fire pit grills. If you have a roof top tent you’re considered an RV here so can’t use a tent site.

Clean & quiet

I really love Death Valley very much clean camping ground even that time we was very hot for tent we camping there for one night we love it 🥰

Great standard site

This was a great campsite at the lowest point in the continental US. Potable water is available on site, the bathrooms are clean. Obviously this campsite is desert like, there is a bit of shade with some trees, but it’s open for the most part. Showers are offsite at a nearby hotel.

Open, hot campsites with tons of places to explore

You will be a bit off the beaten path at this site, but it will be worth it the second the sun goes down on a clear night. It is one of the darkest spots in the country and the stars will take your breath away. You need to bring your own shade, but every place you want to explore is a short drive away.

Hard Pack Camping with a View

It’s basically camping in a dirt and asphalt parking lot with. I shade. You are close to the general store, so cold beer (at about $10 a six pack) isn’t far away. But, that’s not why you come to Death Valley. You come for the otherworldly experience and Stovepipe Wells is dead center for exploring.

Bonus tip- Head over to Furnace Creek Inn at sunset and enjoy a margarita or glass of wine on the deck. It’s a bucket list experience.

Spacious and great location

I enjoyed this campsite over Mesquite campground in Death valley, the sites were not as close together here and it is close to some bigger hikes as well as, it is still not far from the visitor center or other things you may need.

Rock Camping

$12 a site. No frills, set up on gravel, sleep, get up and enjoy an amazing sunrise by the Mesquite Dunes. No shade. Brutally hot in the summer, but people tough it out.

First to Review
Nothing Fancy, yet views of the Dunes

This campsite is near multiple stores, a bar and a gas station in case you are worried about your resources for the night. That said, it also has an amazing view of the valley, and you can see sunset on the dunes if you are lucky! It does get windy due to the lack of cover so be prepared for that.
