3 Reviews of Sunset Campground
Central and Simple

As the others said, this is a really simple campground that almost looks like a large parking lot. That said, being right next to Furnace Creek you can take advantage of the store to buy some snacks. Another great thing is that it is really close to Zabriskie's Point, so you can hop over there for Sunrise very easily. In general it was exactly what my sister and I were looking for.

Such a disappointment after Furnace Creek

We had only reserved two days at Furnace Creek and wanted to stay in the area another day. Since Furnace Creek was full (and it was too late for no-show campsites) we decided to stay at Sunset, which is right across the road.

There is no shade, just sand and pavement. The winds kicked up a sandstorm and with no cover it was intense.

We were there in March, so it could have been a lot worse. Strongly do not recommend this campsite, especially if you go when it is warmer.

If you have an RV and don't plan on looking out the windows

This is a paved parking lot in the middle of death valley. There are no trees, views or firepits. This is exclusively for RV'ers that want to drive up on flat pavement and want to stay inside the vehicle.
