Campground Description

Campground Description

Near the western edge of Death Valley National Park is the small community of Panamint Springs. Essentially a resort town, Panamint Springs consists of a small store, gas station, restaurant, lodging, and campground, and it is inhabited by the residents that support these services.

The campground is full service and can accommodate RVs and tent campers alike. Visitors in RVs can choose between 12 full hook-up or 25 dry sites. Twenty-six tent sites and one group site with a 30 person capacity is all a just reservation away. Forget your tent? No worries, this campground also has small and large tent cabins as well. Furthermore, each site comes equipped with a fire ring and access to the showers at no additional cost. Dogs are allowed here with an additional $5 fee per pet, per day.

This is the least expensive campground in Death Valley National Park, but staying at Panamint Springs does have it’s drawbacks. Darwin Falls is the only major attraction in the area, so if you are looking for close access to what Death Valley has to offer, this is not the ideal spot to set up your base camp. If you are just arriving, or preparing to leave, however, this is a great option because it is not far from the 190/Panamint Springs Road junction.

Exploring Death Valley can consume a lot of gas, and what you save in camping fees here will soon be in your tank. The individual sites are in close proximity to each other with minimal foliage as a border between. It does seem that some thought was put into the layout, however, and not all sites are packed next to one another. With all the pros and cons weighed, this is still a noteworthy place to consider.
