Good stop for snacks and bathroom break

After a long car ride, this is a good place to stop, stretch, snack and bathroom. The gift shop has a vast array of items and the outdoor seating a pleasant place to take a break.

Jist of the review is in the title. We stayed at the campground for 5 nights in tent camping. Nothing special, sound carries too well over the flat land. View is georgeous. Bathrooms had plenty of TP, no hot water. Store really stood out for its very fair prices.Wood was a good price, about $7 for a decent size bundle.... More

Contrary to other reports, gasoline was $3.37/gallon for regular. Modestly more than we paid in Baker and $0.60/gallon more than in Ridgecrest.

After exploring the dunes, my husband and I had a nice lunch here. My husband had a bowl of chili and a burger. He said it was good. I got a prickly pear margarita and an entree salad with mixed greens, black beans, avocado, corn, and grilled chicken. It was surprisingly refreshing. The deco was beautiful and great service.

We stopped briefly at Stovepipe Wells, but didn't do much. Just so no-purchase in the giftshop. Most challenging thing about visiting this unusual park is getting there. We approached from Nevada side, and couldn’t believe the two-lane road on the exit from Furnace Creek. At times we were actually below sea level, then the well-paved road climbed (as high as...

Our room was clean (even though it smelled kind of unusually), the staff was professional, and they have a great air conditionig, alleluia! The only thing that bothered me was the small pool with so many kids in it and we also didn't have a remote control in our room, but fortunately the TV had these little buttons on the... More

I loved Stovepipe Wells and wish we'd planned to stay a night. The area surrounding the town is unforgiving but beautiful, much like what we see in the outback of South Australia. There is remarkable beauty in nothingness.

.............there's the General Store and the Hotel/Restaurant/Bar. And, I almost forgot, the campsite that was completely empty in mid-July. Not much else to see or do. However, don't miss the General Store. You will find a fantastic selection of a wide variety of things (a truly amazing selection, in fact, when one considers the size of the store) when you...

Death Valley itself, in July was unimpressive. I really don't think it would impress me any time of year. Lots of sage! The dunes near Stovepipe Wells were cool though (not cool like cold though because it was 115 degrees) and the staff at the general store were helpful and nice. I prefer the mountains but just wanted to say... More
