Beleave it or not, the park is most busy during the summer months when temperatures can reach 134 degrees. The average temperature in July is 116 degrees.  Death Valley is a vast and arid desert.   Campbase does not recommend taking your RV to Death Valley during the summer months.  

Like most of Americas national parks, there are numerous things to see and do in Death Valley.  Furnace Creek has a 19 hole golf course that is the lowest golf course in the world at -214 feet.  The saying is: YOU'LL GET YOUR LOWEST SCORE EVER.   Furnice Creek is an oasis in the middle of this vast and arid desert.  There are five (5) campgrounds within walking distance to this Furnace Creek oasis.  The campgrounds are Furnice Creek Campground, Furnice Creek Ranch Campground, Fiddlers Campground, Sunset Campground, and Texas Springs Campground.  

Death Valley National Park is a "Drivers park" due to the large size of the park.  The numerous sights in the park all need to be driven to.  Most park roads are in excellent condition however, if you are driving a large RV, a tow car is essential.  Jeep rentals are available at the Furnace Creek Inn.  A few park roads do have vehicle length limits.  

Make sure you pick up the Visitors Guide news paper at the Information Center.  The guide has all the essential park information and is very useful.

There is a 24-hour laundromat available in Furnace Creek Ranch.  It's the only one in the park.

Fuel is available at Stovepipe Wells Village, Furnace Creek, and Panamint Springs Resort.  Fuel prices are usually a bit more expensive in the park.

Showers are available at Stovepipe Wells Village and Furnace Creek Ranch for a small fee.  See the front hotel desk.

Firewood can be purchased at Panamint Springs, Stovepipe Wells, or Furnace Creek markets.
