The vibe at Furnace Creek Campground
Drop some Furnace Creek Campground knowledge on us.
While most of the sites do have some sort of tree coverage for shade, not all do. The site we ended up with was just a sectioned off area in the flat dirt. Not bad (key word FLAT), but come prepared with some form or fashion of your own shade, just in case!
Pro tip...pay the little bit of extra money to stay at the campground attached to Furnace Creek Resort (Fiddler's Campground) and you will get access to their swimming pool and recreational facilities. Fiddler's does not have individual picnic tables or fire pits or much shade so Furnace Creek is a little nicer in that respect but access to the swimming pool was priceless.
There aren't a ton of developed campgrounds in Death Valley, but this seems to be the go to one! Has recently been renovated, so the roads are all paved nicely and the campsites are very well maintained and manicured. I only have experience in the standard drive-in tent sites, however there are numerous hike-in only sites available too. In my opinion the best sites for tent camping are on the farthest loop at sites 100-110. These seem to have the most shade and vegetation. The campsites are very close together so there's not a ton of privacy, but it's never been a problem for me. The bathrooms are solid and are usually pretty clean. Also you can walk to the park visitor center or even the gas station/store from here if you need supplies.
Flushable toilets but no cooling system. In a place like death valley, a closed up bathroom makes it feel like a heat box when you're in there. Close to a ranger station, general store, and eatery.
Try to fill up on gas before you get here because it might be more expensive inside the park (it's a HUGE park). The campsites are a bit close to each other and it's right next to the RVs so it's not as peaceful. However, you'll want to explore the park more than stay on site.
This campground is your standard, no frills campground but great location within the park. I would say it's best for the traveler who is looking to be out adventuring more than hanging at the camp spot.
