This campground is really just dry camping in a gravel parking lot. It is inexpensive, especially with a senior pass. It is across the street from Furnace Creek and centrally located. It's not a place to get away from crowds or be close to nature. There was plnety of space for the largest RV's and generator hours are adequate.

It's a Wall Mart parking lot. It's the last campground to "sell-out" . . It's a ok place for the first night until you cut your teeth. Most Death Valley campgrounds sell out by 10 am . . Sooooo . . If you are coming in late . . Just need a place to stay for one night . ....

This is not a campground, it is a parking lot. There is no shade at all, also no picnic tables, no fire pits, no BBQs. It is right next to the road, and you don't even have a view of the sunset. You may have a view of the sunrise, but for that you would have to leave your huge...

after reading the reviews. But hey......for $7.00/night who could ask for anything more? The flush toilets were grand.......there was a sink to wash kitchen items behind the bathroom.......and it was maybe 15 % occupied. The water from the outdoor faucets was delish and oh my.....those starry skies are unbeatable. very few places in the world w/skies like Death Valley at...

We stayed there Feb 10 to the 13th. The Furnace Creek Campground was full, we could have stayed one night and then leave or move to another spot if one opened but decided to just stay at the Sunset Campground. Right above it is the Texas Creek Campground and it was available and looked a little nicer, but no generators...

Designed for cars and RVs but no hookups, no table, no fire ring. Just a parking spot with hard gravel ground impenetrable by tent stakes. Sharp gravel pokes into tent flooring making barefoot and kneeling painful in a tent. Had to tie tent to car to make sure it would not be blown away in case of wind. Large flat...

We always camp at Sunset for Death Valley 49"s Death Valley Days. We have 5 RV's camping there and it is such fun. The campground is clean with water and several dumps, There is a lot to do and Sunset is a good place to set up camp and then explore the area

Sunset Campground and Texas Spring Campground are off the same road, where Texas Spring is a nicer campground for tents. But since it was full, we ended up at Sunset Campground, which is a big open space that is catered more toward trailers, but we can set up tents in the slot. Because the place is meant for trailers, there...

We spent two nights camping here in March during a week-long hiking trip through DVNP and Joshua Tree NP. Like other reviewers have said, it's essentially a gravel parking lot with marked spaces for each site and a few bathroom and trash facilities scattered about. The campground is first-come-first-served, but we had no problem finding a spot either night even...

"Boondocked" here for 2 nights in an RV over the Valentine week. The camp ground has more than 250 sites. The place is pretty barren which made it easy to maneuver and pull through. The ground is rocky, not a problem for an RV, but I am not sure I would do tent camping like a few people I saw....
