Mesquite Spring is your chance to avoid crowds and recharge with some winter camping, minus the noise of RV engines (as many of the RV winter campers grab a spot at Stovepipe Wells first). Even if you miss winter, this year round spot is sure to stun you. Considered one of the prettiest campgrounds in Death Valley, with astounding spring wildflower shows, Mesquite offers 30 tent and RV sites, picnic tables, fire pits, water, flush toilets and a dump station. Park on the shoulder of Highway 190 and lose track of time as you hike into this surreal landscape of exquisitely curvaceous dunes surrounded on all sides by perilous mountain beauty. Sunset here is no joke. You may just catch it shimmering across the highest dune (which reaches 140 feet above sea level).

Stayed here Dec 27, 2014, this is an awesome campsite. If you are a stargazer there is little to no ambient light to interfere with your view. camp ground is close to Scotty's Castle, and Ubehebe Crater. If you winter camp it can be cold dropped to 26 at nite

I stayed here in March of 2016. This is an all-time favorite campground of mine. It's not very big and it's far into the park, so it stays quiet (also no RVs). There were just a few other campers spending the night when I was there. FANTASTIC spot for night sky viewing as there's no lights around.

Hot during the day and cold at night but the sunsets and star gazing is worth it.
