Away from the maddening crowds of Furnace Creek, well to the north of StovePipe Wells. Sites tend to fill up in the afternoon. No reservations. Piped water at bathrooms only. A nice, out of the way campground! Near Ubehebe Crater and Scotty's Castle (closed as of Mar 2016)

This is one of the better campsites in Death Valley if you truly want to get away from the crowds at Furnace Creek. It's a long way from any stores or services so make sure you have plenty of gas/food/ice for the cooler. (Scotty's Castle was closed when we camped there in March 2016). There are about 40 sites on... More

None of the campgrounds in Death Valley would really qualify as "good," but Mesquite Springs is one of the better choices, especially if you are a tent camper that enjoys solitude. The location prevents most of the Furnace Creek crowd from interrupting, and although more than half of the sites did fill up by dark midweek in February, there is... More

It's a first come first serve, we found a good RV pull thru site at the end of the campground. None of the sites are very flat. You have a picnic table, fire pit and some a bbq but that's it. NO HOOKUPS. There is two camp bathrooms with running water and are very clean. There is also a place... More

This great campground is at the far north end of Death Valley National Park. As you see on the map it is a long way from just about everything especially markets. Be sure and have all your supplies before you get there. You can buy a few items at Scotty's Castle (by the way a great side trip if you've... More

Good camping spot. Spaces are big with fire pits. It is not a huge campground which we liked. The bathrooms are nice and clean and do have flush toilets. There are no showers, but between the two restrooms is an area with a large utility sink for washing dishes or whatever. It was a quiet place and is prefectly attuned... More

We stayed here during Memorial Day weekend. There were about 7 campsites occupied that night. Campsites were spacious and all had a fire pit and table. Some campers said the night before rained and was very windy. We saw a little wind that died down after sunset and was very mild all night. No noisy campers and everyone was polite.... More

Mesquite Springs is in northern Death Valley. The first time I was there in March of 2010 the campground was full, I couldn't believe how many people were camping, all the sites were taken, of course the weather was ideal. So I planned a trip for June of 2010 hoping that not too many campers were out. After all, who... More

The campground is primitive but does have water and flush toilets. The weather in the fall and spring is usually very nice but showers and windy conditions are not uncommon. The desert is great for walking; there are petroglyphs in the area within a couple of miles from the campground. Coyotes, Ravens, Road runners, and cottontail rabbits wander through the... More
