If you check out www.rvparkreviews.com there are many campgrounds listed for Death Valley. For sure see Scotty's Castle while you are visiting the area.

Also take the tech tour at the Castle if you have time.

Dante's View at sunset/rise is amazing.

Artist's Drive is a must see.

I Lone Pine, if you have a Inter-Agency Golden access pass you can stay for 1/2 price at the BLM, Tuttle Creek Campground http://http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/f...ng/tuttle.html

The above pass is also good for 1/2 price in Death Valley NP and free entrance to the park.

The road to Scotty's Castle is closed, and according to NPS, not to re-open until 2019.


We've stayed at both Furnace Creek and Stovepipe Wells. Both great places. Be aware that there's no cell service at Stovepipe. But the restaurant does have wi-fi.

If coming in from Lone Pine, Panamint Springs is fun, has beautiful views of the mountains, and military jets flying five feet off the deck. Good and funky bar, restaurant, and RV park. And a nice dirt runway if ever flying into there.

If you change your plans to the beginning of November you could be there for the 49-ers celebration which is lots of fun. The weather is perfect then.
