Campground Reservations:
Reservations for the Furnace Creek Campground and group sites are available for the camping season of October 15 to April 15 by calling 1-877-444-6777 or by going online at Reservations must be made at least 4 days in advance, but can be made up to 6 months in advance. All unreserved sites are open first come/first served.

Between April 16 and October 14 Furnace Creek Campground is entirely first come/first served.

Be advised that Furnace Creek Campground has a new numbering system. Please review the new map before making reservations.

All our other National Park campgrounds are first come/first served.

Generator hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., unless otherwise posted. These hours are chosen to accommodate the needs of the wide variety of people who use Death Valley's campgrounds. Generators are prohibited in Texas Spring Campground.

Campsites are limited to no more than eight people and two vehicles or one recreational vehicle per site. Larger groups wishing to camp together can reserve the group sites at the Furnace Creek Campground. The two group sites are limited to a maximum of 40 people and 10 vehicles each. No recreational vehicles may be parked at the group sites.

Pets: There is a maximum limit of 4 pets per campsite and pets must be kept on a leash no longer than six feet at all times.

Pet feces in campgrounds, campsites, lawns, walkways, access roads, and around public buildings must be disposed of in a trash bin by the person responsible for the pet.

Campfires: All vegetation in the park is protected. Firewood and charcoal are available at the NPS Concession run Stovepipe Wells General Store, or at the private-owned Furnace Creek General Store, or you can bring your own supply. Fire pits or grates are provided at Furnace Creek, Texas Spring, and most of our other campgrounds. See the campground table above for specifics.

RVs: Furnace Creek Campground now has a few sites with full hookups for recreational vehicles. RV hookup sites are also available at the concession-run Stovepipe Wells RV Park and the privately-owned Furnace Creek Ranch and Panamint Springs Resort.

Camping Limits: Furnace Creek Campground has a limit of 14 days per calendar year. The rest of Death Valley National Park has a 30-day per calendar year camping limit.
