We went on Easter weekend and it was pretty busy. Temperatures were moderate and the Superbloom was just past peak. I think we got the last camp site in the campground at 10:30 am. We were determined to find a place so we looked at almost every tag at each campsite. We found a tiny campsite between 2 large groups....

We found the tent sites at Texas Spring just fine on a quick trip to see the 2016 superbloom of wildflowers. Campground is uphill from the main areas of Furnace Creek Ranch and the NP visitor center so it's pretty quiet but convenient to get to a ranger talk or a restaurant. It also has great views from the campsites...

I camped here for springbreak and had a blast. Other nearby camps like Sunset and Stovepipe Wells are too exposed, too close to the road and have to be shared with folks in RVs, which can be a bit annoying. Also, in Texas Spring each site has its own picnic table and fire pit. There are flushable toilets and taps...

We camped at Texas Springs during the super bloom. Campgrounds were great, quite, bathrooms were clean. It's first come first serve, but people seemed friendly enough to let you know when you were leaving. Furnace creek is very close and you can get great info down there. Plus you can get a pool and shower pass for $5 for the...

I was lucky to get the last spot in the tent area. This campground is near the Furnace Creek visitor center and general store. There is not much privacy, but it was a nice spot to camp. In the summer it would be harsh if you do not get a spot with any shade, those were far and few between....

I really wish it were easier to find primitive tent camping in the park, but you have to go pretty far from the busy areas to find non-paved roads that are not signed "no camping" (the rule is 1 mile from paved road). So we ended up here, with so many other campgrounds being full or literally right by the...

Tent camping Monday night of President's Day weekend. I hoped more folks would have headed home but I get there in time to get a spot before they filled up again for the night. Unless you get there early enough to be in the lower loop, you are lined up like a parking lot. The space is large enough but...

We stayed for one night. It would have been better if we could get outside and cook some dinner, it was just so windy!! There are no showers here, toilets are fine. There is a communal sink to wash up and for $14 it is affordable.

I camped here the last half of October. So temps at night went down to 60. While checking out another campground and NPS employee asked me why I wasn't considering Texas Spring. I told her I'd just chosen one thinking times best. Since I was in a tent she recommended this one saying there wouldn't be any generators and it...

The campground itself wasn't bad. There were fire pits with table and bench at every site and a communal restroom nearby. No showers here but the Furnace Creek Inn offered the use of their pool AND showers for only $5/person. I was definitely grateful for the pool after running around a windy desert all day! Unfortunately, the winds were terrible...
