We camped here one night because the other campground was full. It was essentially a gravel parking lot. No tables, no firepit, no nothing. It would probably be fine for an RV or trailer camping, but for tent camping it was terrible.

Decent stay in the Campground on my stip through Death Valley. Its desert, its dry and can be really hot. One night I was there the wind was 40-50 mph. That night was uncomfortable but otherwise, it was fine. Primitive Campground which is what I prefer Bathrooms, Dump station, water available. Good location for exploring that part of Death Valley. The Furnace Creek area has some nice things, gift shop, information from the Park Service.

Our fault because we had no reservations so we ended up at the Sunset campground. No hook-ups but water and sewer available. Make sure you have a broom because the dust becomes a huge problem. Death Valley is a great place but it seems that maintenance is lacking especially considering the costs associated with entrance

Sunset campground is a natural gravel campground. With 200 plus spaces you can pick your own space. No reservations are needed, no hookups. There are clean restrooms with flush toilets scattered around and also large water stations for doing dishes, and for drinking water. A dump station and drinking water is within the campground for trailers or motor homes. Tents are welcome. Across the street is a resort that offers showers for a small fee. Camping fees can be paid at a kiosk in the campground or across the street at the visitors center. $14 per night. Very crowded on holidays.

We arrived late in the evening and parked our camper van overnight at the nearest campground available which was Sunset Campground. Since the campground is located on a plain with no protection from the sun or (what was worse) the strong winds, we experienced a sleepless night since the wind pushed constantly against the vehicle. The next day we discovered Furnace Creek Campground a little further across the road and immediately switched places. It offers scrubs and trees and is generally much better looked after.
