    This old town has great character. The proprietor Roger has great stories and suggestions to all visitors. He's a wealth of information. The town is full of rustic buildings and lots to see.  more »

Where to stay in Death Valley National Park

Death Valley National Park provides numerous developed campgrounds where you can pitch a tent. Some of these are free, and some are open year-round, while others only offer camping in the cooler, non-summer months. There are a few privately owned and operated lodges and inns in the park, most of which feature rustic accommodations. With its upscale lodging, the Furnace Creek Inn stands as an exception. The town of Beatty, on the Nevada side of the park, offers a few basic inns and motels and a couple of casinos. On the California side, Randsburg sits farther away from the park's popular Furnace Creek area, but the town offers numerous economy motels and views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
