  • The route to Charcoals Kilns Was very lonely. During the whole trip, we have only 4 cars. The last piece was a "white road", but was with a normal car. Certainly do for two days water in case your car would fail. Do not leave your car and wait until someone else passes to ask for help. With GSM has no range. It was worth to Charcoal Kilns. There were several signs that the historic history.

  • Great view from here to the mountains in the west! And, it's much cooler here than in the Valley! Lot's of flies, though.
  • The charcoal kilns are at the beginning of an amazing hike up to wild rose peak. I don't know if the drive up there would have been worth it for the kilns alone. But if you're going up for the hike, definitely check them out.
  • This was a nice side trip. We had such an educational day and there was a lot of history. We also did some looking for the super blooms. Excellent experience. Highly recommend this little trek off the beaten path!
  • Nice historic landmark placed at the trailhead of a couple of nice hikes. Not worth a visit per se but if you plan a hike there make sure to stop by to check them out and read about their history.
  • Worth the drive. A typical sedan can make this trip.

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.
