The vibe at Texas Spring Campground
Drop some Texas Spring Campground knowledge on us.
Texas Spring is my favorite campground in Death Valley. It is located among the hills and badlands where you can feel that you are actually camping in Death Valley. Clean bathrooms and drinking water available. In the morning, you can climb up the hills right out of your tent welcome the sunrise. This is a seasonal campground so make sure it is open before you plan staying there.
We went into Death Valley without reserving a campsite. Our first stop was to check Texas Springs and there were plenty of available spots with a general store right across the street. A few campsites were shaded, but most were exposed to the sun.
Fantastic gem of a campground. Being in such a hot place, it's imperative to find a site that will give you ample shade throughout the day. There are a few with some good trees but I would say the best is site #26. Quite possibly the best tree coverage in the whole campground.
This is a beautiful sprawling ground central to everything. The location in the park is certainly ideal. The magic of this campground comes alive when you explore it’s surrounding ridges and nooks. Every time of day offers a unique feel with lighting hitting things differently all the time. Cool at night to be expected. Super easy access and has a store / place to eat a five minute drive away. It’s a great place to pop off from for day trips around Death Valley.
If the goal is getting up and out to explore Death Valley NP this campground is well worth it. A bit stacked on top of one another but still super central and near a store... which you’ll find useful being that you’ll drive for hours without passing one. Just get out and explore. If you’re just planning to stay at the campsite then it might not be the one for you.
Central Location with Drinking Water and Bathrooms
This is a good central spot for getting to Badwater Basin and Zabriske Point and similar spots easily.
No hookups but plenty of access points for drinking water. Bathrooms were clean.
Spots are pretty close together so don’t expect much privacy here. Surrounding rocks and view were pretty during sunrise and sunset.
As it’s Death Valley, roaming only cell signal. The Ranch (5-10 min drive) has ample parking and Paid Wi-Fi if needed.
