  • It's hard to see from the main road but once you get there the formations are really unique and one of a kind. Went as the sun was setting and it made for some beautiful pictures. Just be careful wher...  more »

  • Don't be shocked by the sandy and unprepared road, any car can do it easily. The drive is totally worth it, the salt-rock formations look indeed as they were from another, remote and dangerous world. Just walk 5 minutes away from the parking spot and you'll find some nice, undamaged area. When trying to get there, Google sent us too early into the desert, just wait for the sign "devil's golf course" on the main road.
  • The Google Maps app set us off course and we originally ended up out of bounds. In the end it turned out to have some interesting rocks and some neat salt, but as an actual golf course it leaves a whole lot to be desired. I wouldn’t recommend driving the extra few hundred yards unless you have a great interest in geology and little interest in golf.
  • The short unpaved road brings you out into the middle of this unique and interesting landscape. The jagged salt formations extend as far as the eye can see. There isn't much opportunity to explore further than the carpark as the salt is rock hard and extremely sharp, although it is quite interesting to look at closely from this area.
  • We nearly missed this part of Death Valley, but were intrigued by the name as we drove past it. It wasn't mentioned in our travel guide, but it seems like only a brief detour so we decided to go for it – and we were rewarded. I'm tempted to say that this is the most interesting part of Death Valley. Everyone talks about Badwater Basin and don't get me wrong, it is a fantastic experience to stand at the entrance to the basin, but the Devil's Golf Course is a different ball game; maybe because it's so unexpected. I can highly recommend stopping there, especially since it won't take up much of your time. Great and unexpected views.
  • Must see when visiting Death valley. Beautiful and bizarre field of salt blocks.

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.
