Death Valley

Conquering the largest US park

You are about to discover Death Valley, a major destination in western USA! Death Valley is the largest park on the continent and offers diverse landscapes.

Death Valley is accessible from Las Vegas (140 miles) or Los Angeles (270 miles), and extends from Nevada to California. Its name comes from the gold seeking pioneers who set out to cross it in an attempt to reach California.

Death Valley is full of amazing and diverse landscapes that often contradict one another. Indeed, there are mountain peaks that can sometimes be covered in snow, but also sand dunes, salt deserts and canyons. In summer temperatures sore above 50°C, making the region scorched and very dry. Despite these harsh conditions, the park has a relatively rich array of wildlife including lynx, coyotes and mountain lions.

The best period to visit this area is from from mid-October to April. In fact, CampingCar-Online needs to emphasise that it is strictly forbidden to travel there by motorhome from 15 June to 15 September.

The valley is spread over three areas: Furnace Creek, Scotty's Castle and Stovepipe Wells. We recommend that you go to Zabriskie Point and Badwater, the lowest point in North America(86 meters below sea level). Also stop by the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes in Stovepipe Wells.

You will have no trouble finding a campsite near the park.
