Death Valley & Amargosa Accommodations
Spring is the busiest season, especially during those weeks immediately following a splashy photo spread of desert wildflowers in the travel section of the LA Times. Accommodations at Furnace Creek will frequently sell out on Friday and Saturday nights. Stovepipe Wells less frequently but it does happen. One weekend the park is sure to fill to capacity—steer clear or book many months in advance—is during the Death Valley ‘49er Encampment in November. Otherwise, with fewer than a million visitors each year, most just passing through, Death Valley is still a place where silence and wind reign supreme.
