Campground Description

Campground Description

The first signs of life after crossing over the majestic Panamint Mountains via Highway 190 and entering Death Valley National Park is what appears to be an old ranger station with restroom facilities and a picnic area. It is here you will also find the small, tent-only Emigrant Campground. Offering only the basics, this free to use campground still has some strong points to consider.

For most who visit Death Valley, a long drive precedes your arrival. Stopping here is a great spot to get some rest before you explore further into the park. Emigrant Campground is also near the edge of this 3.3-million acre park, so, it’s also an ideal spot to stage your departure. With all the diversity in the Death Valley landscape, you will not be disappointed with the views from here either. At 2,100 feet, you can just start to get a grasp of what this park is all about.

Ten campsites have been carved out just off the highway in close proximity to the restrooms. These are nothing more than a fairly flat, rocky ground that is divided up by larger rocks and boulders. This campground does not offer any fire pits; however, it does have potable water, flushing toilets, and a nearby payphone. Death Valley National Park receives over a million visitors annually, so these first-come, first-served campsites fill up fast.
