nice views

$14 a night, right by a lake! super pretty. mountain view’s as well. the only bad part is i think this is a local hot spot, and there was loud trucks coming in and out in the late hours blasting music. also 4 wheelers going crazy!! did not sleep good at all.

As advertised

Stayed at Furnace Creek. Facilities as expected. Mix of tent and RV sites. Plan to secure your food and trash. I had a coyote get into the trash bag at 3 am.

Desert Snow Magic

This place is absolutely gorgeous. I have camped out here 3 times now. Each time it never disappoints and never gets old. I love that it doesn’t have amenities because it lets me feel like we are far out there even though there is easy access to town.

Incredible terrain, beautiful skies, super easy access

Please note:  This review is regarding the dispersed camping.  There are (at least) two formal camp grounds right near the dispersed camping area.

We went up there with another family, both of us towing camping trailers with 4x4 trucks.  A 4x4 is not needed, nor is a high clearance vehicle. …

This is majestic in every sense of the word!

True solitude if you go far enough back into the wash but know it’s a very sharp gravel road with some good ruts and dips That said we made it ( albeit very slowly) in a stock RAV4 loaded for four days in the desert Man you really come to appreciate…

Memorial Weekend 2021

Amazing views in every direction. Although it was a holiday weekend, we found a great spot early Saturday morning. Find a spot not too far from a porta potty if you don’t have your own. Also be prepared for the heat and wind. A mister to cool you down and extra stakes or even weights for your tent…

Basic but has the essentials

We enjoyed our stay here. TJ does a good job taking care of the place. Our site was a pull in (most welcome) and partially shaded by mature trees. Felt less like “parking lot” style camping. Used the laundry facility - $2.75 took care of washing and drying a medium size load. Pleased at the price…

Best. Campsite. Ever.

Everyone knows about Alabama Hills now (thanks social media). That doesn't diminish the beauty out there. There is a plethora of available camping spots that all fill up quickly and for good reason. Falling asleep at night looking at Mount Whitney is something I could never get used to and the…

Awesome place!

This is such a beautiful area. Take some extra water and spend some time exploring this place. The rocks give me Joshua Tree vibes, and the views of Whitney are incredible. Have fun!

Basic needs

The resort has what you need for an overnight stay.  The market is closed now but the WIFI is capable of streaming movies.  I took a shower and there was no hot water, but that brought back memories of my time living off base in Thailand in 1974.

Nice midweek stop

Only a few people here on Tuesday. Pretty stop on the 395. Already 90 degrees in May but some trees so nice in the shade.

Great tent site

Campsite is at 2000 feet so cooler than bottom and way less crowded. Good biking up side roads.

1st come 1st serve w/ many pros

Am finding out that no free campground is con-free, but this one is great for the fact there are flushing toliets just across the street, there is a water source at the 10 spot campsite, garbage bins that are emptied regularly, and the people who fill up these spots daily seemed to all be courteous…

Cute, friendly RV Park

Dave, the manager, is very friendly and helpful. The sites are all gravel pull through and the RV Park is right in the middle of town on the main strip. Cute little shops nearby to walk to as well as a BBQ restaurant 3 short blocks away.

This was my very first RV experience and Dave kindly…
