This was the perfect three day weekend. We took Kayak's across the bay and camped on Marshall Beach. The stars are beautiful and it was such a great experience beach camping. Plus if you are ambitious enough there are areas around where you can Kayak in bioluminescent waters. Plus, on our second day we kayaked across the bay again and went oyster shucking which was a beautiful relaxing experience. I would highly suggest this weekend to anyone interested in something a little different.
This site is beautiful! The entrance is surrounded by these massive redwoods and just set the tone for the whole site. It did rain while we were there, but the trees provided a nice cover. One of my favorite parts though is that there are a tone of hiking trails on the grounds so you can spend all day exploring as well!
I love this campsite! Although busy the rocks create little nooks for privacy for each campsite and the Joshua trees create a truly whimsical feel. Also sunrise and sunset are absolutely stunning so be sure you don't miss those!
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.
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.
