This large, flat parking lot campground is primarily for RV camping and sits within a mile’s reach of the Furnace Creek Ranch Resort and the Furnace Creek Hotel. There are 270 spots, a dump station, flush toilets and water available. With a season that runs October through May, Sunset is perfect for a pre-summer excursion when your bones ache from office chairs and you’ve almost forgotten the scent of night time in the desert.
