It’s not the most scenic campground but the friendly campground host took care of the facilities and did his best to keep it clean and accessible (even though that meant covering me in a dust cloud when he made his rounds brushing off the road). The 40 campsites have virtually no cover and you are in close proximity and view of each other. On the plus side there was running water and working flush toilets despite the fact that a recent storm had taken out the water supply. Benches and tables looked brand new and the fire pits were also free of rubbish. The machine to pay the camping fee was out of order so it meant a short drive back to the Graveside Ranger Station (just 1 mile). It’s all automated and with a credit card and a few pressed buttons you get your receipt to be tacked to the campsite post. You don’t have to choose a campground or campsite when you pay, that part you fill out by hand once you made your choice at the campground. Although the road to Scotty’s Castle was still closed the campground was full by nightfall, whereas I arrived at 11:30am and had a pick of sites. Later arrivals had to turn around and drive the 50+km back to Stovepipe Wells. It feels nicely remote and rustic compared to Stovepipe Wells where there are a hotel and store next door. As a winter campground Mesquite worked really well.

Camped one night on motorcycle trip through Death Valley. There were only 3 small rv’s and 3 other tents in entire campground (first week in October). Really nice contrast to the larger and more crowded Furnace Creek campground where i stayed earlier in the week. A bit out of the way, but was worth it to me. Extremely quite and peaceful. Caught a great sunset and awesome view of stars at night. Was a little windy when I first arrived. Considered not staying, but very happy that I did. Wind calmed down right after sunset and made for a really peaceful night under the stars. Remember to stock up on anything you might need, including firewood. Closest store would be in stovepipe which is about 40 miles away.

Tented for three nights in this 40 space hosted campground. For the time we were there, full as of Wednesday afternoon, and half tents, half RV's. RV's respectful of camp, one nite a bad neighbor up to 11pm with monster truck and loud mouth 'needed correction'. Windy! Be prepared for 25+....we needed rocks top weigh down the stakes- we saw one 'flying' kite like from their remaining stake when we arrived. Surprisingly large number of dogs, but most were very well behaved. No problems with them at night. Great location, far from the busy southern end of park. Great access to Ubehebe Crater, and we hiked the adjacent wash 3 miles north and south. Fantastic incredibly dark skies.

Lovely, quiet campground away from it all. Enjoy the drive as you will do it a lot if this is your basecamp for other areas. We went in February and underestimated the shortness of the daylight, wind and cold for cooking and hanging out. The fire pits have lots of rocks piled for wind barriers which is a good clue of what to expect. We tied our tent to the picnic table because when we arrived there was a wind advisory and there were quite a few tents blown down and in the gully. We appreciated the clean, flush toilets and dishwashing station. The sunrises were gorgeous. We heard coyotes singing. It was fabulous!

This campground was on our way up North to Eureka Dunes so it wasn't terribly inconvenient. It was very windy while we were there and we needed to put a significant amount of rocks in our tent to ensure it would still be there when we got back from our day of exploring. We were there in "peak" season in February and were only one of seven campgrounds staying there. So we were able to find a pretty remote campsite away from the others. Every site had a table and fire pit. It was nice to have water and a flushing toilet. The pay station wasn't working (the campground had just reopened a week or two earlier after being closed for flood damage so maybe it wasn't working yet). We didn't see a ranger in the 24 hours we were there. It was a great spot to stay. Besides the winds, also be aware of the mice. They were a couple around our feet as we ate dinner waiting for scraps.
