This is my #2 favorite paved road accessible campground in Death Valley. It is so conveniently located near all the Furnace Creek attractions, the sites are fairly large and some even offer shrubs and stunted trees that give some shade. The bathrooms are well maintained, with large sink areas for washing areas and filling water bottles. And because generators are...

I arrived to Texas Springs Campground around 4:00 on a Tuesday. I thought for sure there wouldn't be a spot left, but I was pleased to find a great semi shaded spot on the upper loop (rvs-no generators, and tents allowed) Campsite 93 was a perfect spot to set up camp and enjoy nightly sunsets. I was steps away from...

We were pleasantly surprised with this campground, considering we were in the desert. It sits just up a hill above the valley and has decent space between the sites, unlike Sunset Campground down below, which is basically a gravel parking lot. There is a separate tent area and RV area. It's nice that generators are also not allowed. We witnessed...

For its location, I think this is likely the best campground in the more "inhabited" part of the park. Obviously, there's the back-country and Emigrant, but if you want something a little more "civilised", it's a great choice. Be aware that there's not a lot of shade, which means not a lot of privacy, but there are also NO GENERATORS....

We went on Easter weekend and it was pretty busy. Temperatures were moderate and the Superbloom was just past peak. I think we got the last camp site in the campground at 10:30 am. We were determined to find a place so we looked at almost every tag at each campsite. We found a tiny campsite between 2 large groups....

We found the tent sites at Texas Spring just fine on a quick trip to see the 2016 superbloom of wildflowers. Campground is uphill from the main areas of Furnace Creek Ranch and the NP visitor center so it's pretty quiet but convenient to get to a ranger talk or a restaurant. It also has great views from the campsites...

I camped here for springbreak and had a blast. Other nearby camps like Sunset and Stovepipe Wells are too exposed, too close to the road and have to be shared with folks in RVs, which can be a bit annoying. Also, in Texas Spring each site has its own picnic table and fire pit. There are flushable toilets and taps...

We camped at Texas Springs during the super bloom. Campgrounds were great, quite, bathrooms were clean. It's first come first serve, but people seemed friendly enough to let you know when you were leaving. Furnace creek is very close and you can get great info down there. Plus you can get a pool and shower pass for $5 for the...

I was lucky to get the last spot in the tent area. This campground is near the Furnace Creek visitor center and general store. There is not much privacy, but it was a nice spot to camp. In the summer it would be harsh if you do not get a spot with any shade, those were far and few between....

I really wish it were easier to find primitive tent camping in the park, but you have to go pretty far from the busy areas to find non-paved roads that are not signed "no camping" (the rule is 1 mile from paved road). So we ended up here, with so many other campgrounds being full or literally right by the...
