Fall temperatures signal the start of camping season in Death Valley National Park.
Texas Springs, Sunset, and Stovepipe Wells Campgrounds will open on Oct. 15.
The park’s 762 individual campsites are limited to no more than eight people and two vehicles. The park’s five campsites for large groups remain closed.
Reservations can be made for Furnace Creek Campground for Oct. 15 through April 15. All other campgrounds are first-come, first-served only. Sunset Campground has 270 sites and rarely fills, even on holiday weekends.
Lodging, food, supplies, and fuel are available within the park at The Oasis at Death Valley, Stovepipe Wells Resort, and Panamint Springs Resort.
Death Valley Natural History Association operates a bookstore at Furnace Creek Visitor Center.
Details and updates on park operations will continue to be posted on their website.
