Drop some Stovepipe Wells Campground knowledge on us.
Basically just a giant parking lot with tent sites along the perimeter. Get there early to get a spot if you don't have reservations because they fill up fast. To my surprise, I really enjoyed my stay there
We ended up at Stovepipe wells due to a broken tent and high winds up the road. It was far from our first choice, but it wound up being some of the best camping we've experienced. In January the temperature is moderate and the skies are gorgeous. Nearby amenities make camping here simple and it's just a short drive to some amazing trails, hikes, and off-road vehicle drives. Highly recommend.
We camped here out of desperation. We'd intended to camp at Wild Rose, but the spring winds were too much for us. As we drove down off the mountain, we got caught in a dust storm and thunderstorm! The campground is just a big square of gravel and offers not much in the way of natural features. We parked our van right up to the perimeter where the sites back right up to dunes. After the storm, the kids got to go explore the dunes and that was cool.
Great site right in the park! Basic but it has everything you will ever need (expect shade). Mostly an RV site but it did have some tent camping. The camp host was very friendly. I would recommend it if you cannot find a spot somewhere else. Being in the park is better than not. This campsite was right next to the sand dunes which is a total plus to me.
While driving at night, missed the turn to Mahogany Flats and ended up camping at Stovepipe Wells. It was a flat campground close to a gas station, small ranger station, and a tiny little resort. Relatively nice bathrooms, water, and a beautiful sunrise. I wouldn't choose this as my first choice.
This may look like a bleak camping spot, but I absolutely loved the people that worked at Stovepipe Wells. At the gift shop across from the tenting area they had free coffee every morning and the staff was so friendly. Plus the pool attached to the hotel had showers, so I definitely utilized those!
