Death Valley is gorgeous this time of year and the wildflowers are in "super-bloom". We stayed outside of the park in Amargosa Valley at the Longstreet Casino Rv. ($89 a week w/ FHU & 50A) It was only a 35 minute drive to Furnace Creek. 15 minutes to fuel at Lathrop Wells. Diesel $1.70. 40 minutes into Pahrump, NV...all the shopping you would need.
