Camping near Death Valley

We are considering visiting the Death Valley area next year (2012) - either early Oct. before visit to Las Vegas, or Nov.-Dec. time frame.
Any feedback on camping locations or weather conditions at that time of year would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Frank & Bette

October temps average around 85-95F day, 55-65F at night. Obviously cooler toward the end of Oct. Nov-Dec hi temps average 70sF to 60sF, respectively
Furnace Creek has always been our favorite CG.
Mid Nov. to Thanksgiving are pretty busy there.

I was at Death Valley National Park this past March and we stayed at Furnace Creek Ranch Campground. It's dry camping, but I was able to fill up water from the faucet behind the bathrooms, which were near my camp site. They also have a dump station. I also had a site next to the trees....that's where the tent camper sites are located. The benefit is the shade that you get during the latter half of the day and semi privacy. The campground is also walking distance to the stores, restaurants, golf course, and museum. Here's a pic of my desert shangri la.

Mesquite Springs is a pretty campground near Scotty's Castle. It's dry camping. We would highly recommend the Castle tour - we've done it 3x!! November would be a good time because it's getting cooler. Safe travels!

How many days will you have? What direction will you be coming from?

We go in from the Trona end. Trona pinnacles is a cool place to see. I stay in the Panamint valley BLM area every November for a big jeep run. I like Panamint springs, they have a web site, some full hookup sites. We have also stayed at stovepipe wells, only a few hookup spots, but lots of dry camping.

Me and wife love Death Valley, scottys castle, charcoal kilns, sand dunes, ryolite, titus canyon, Darwin, the koi pond, old mines, artists point, bad water, marble canyon, just to name a few of the cools spot.

Try Pahrump, NV, just between Las Vegas and Death Valley with very convenient access to either and a variety of very good campgrounds.

I think Pahrump may be our better option - we, and our traveling friends, are not dry campers. Day trips in the toad would work.

Pahrump is a great destination, but it wasn't in an RV. HA

We go to Terribles RV Park in Pahrump, NV and do day trips into Death Valley. It is a nice park with a small casino and buffet. We are going again this year for Thanksgiving. My blog has several pictures of the area. Look in 2010 for Nov and 2009 also.

I used to live west of Death Valley in the Mojave Desert for may years. The best time to visit Death Valley is in November. Go to Encampment - Events it is an Annual Event and is well worth attending. Death Valley is vast and there is lots to see. Staying at the Furnace Creek Inn is best but you might have to have reservations during Death Valley Encampment. It is a long way between some of the sites so go prepared with extra water and snacks. And....not many gas stations and expensive.

You can't go wrong with Terrible's RV in Pahrump. Great rv park, don't think much of the casino or the restaurant.
