There are two RV Parks at Stovepipe Wells Village. One is run by the NPS and the other is a private concern run by Xanterra Inc. Both are behind the General Store and next to each other. Both are on hard packed dirt/sand. The private one has hook ups for electric/sewer/water and are pull through. One registers at the hotel across the street from the General Store and further amenities include the use of the facilities including the swimming pool, showers/bathrooms, ice machine, guest lounge and soda/phone. The NPS run site has numerous places to camp and is basically dry camping with limited times for generator use and is much cheaper to stay. I saw dumpsters and a small building at this site, but I don't know if there were showers there. Death Valley is an awesome experience; however, come prepared at all levels. Many of off main road scenic sights have turn around areas for large rigs. I was in a 28' MH towing a vehicle and had no problem.
I really liked this place due to its quiet setting and rustic setting. This is right on 95 so, one does hear road noise in the background, but after awhile I completely forgot it. Several large cottonwood trees dot the RV Park setting. The road and pads are compressed dirt. Picnic tables are throughout. The best thing about this park is its natural hot springs. There are 3 of them with varying temperatures. The staff was friendly and helpful. I didn't use their bathrooms; however, I got a peak. They are relatively clean and functional, but definitely not 5 star. Absolutely no cell phone service or Wi-Fi. I didn't even attempt the satellite TV. It appears that this RV Park needs a lot of upgrades, repairs and remodeling and it is on the market to be sold.
This was intended as just an over nighter. Staff were VERY helpful and friendly. However, RV's are jammed in this park like sardines. Sites are gravel and level and main roads are gravel. Dog friendly, but only place to walk a dog is on the road, they do market their "Dog Park". But, it is nothing more than a fenced in dirt area about the size of a small den. There are a lot of long term RV'ers there due to construction work and the park was relatively quiet. There is a small store on grounds. I would use this place again for a very short stay.
There are two RV parking areas at the Wildhorse Resort. One is free and is basically in the parking lot of the Casino and the other is a couple blocks behind the Casino which costs. I tried an hour staying at the free be which I will not attempt again. RV's are packed up against each other like sardines, no services other than a shuttle to the Casino. One hasn't lived until parked next to a noisy or diesel belching generator. I found the fee based RV Park by chance and thank god. This was only an over nighter. Roads are paved, pad was paved and RV's are situated a reasonable distance from each other. Hook ups no problem. I arrived after hours, but staff were friendly and helpful the next day. No trees so there could be a problem during the heat of summer. Didn't use their facilities so can not comment.
The park is scenic and well appointed; however, RV's in some locations were packed too close together in my opinion. Pad relatively level and mostly dirt. Shower facilities were located a considerable distance away although they were clean and functional. Staff seemed very impersonal, indifferent and had an attitude of "business of usual". Didn't try and use Wi-Fi, Satellite TV or anything of this sort. Basically, wanted to get away from here. I would probably use this park again if I was in the area.
RV Park setting is unique as it has an funky old time feel. Roads are dirt/gravel mix as well as pads. Part of the park is level, but most of it is on an incline, although pads are fairly level. Pad length was sufficient; however, little room on either side of RV to walk around due to slope. Dogs on leash OK, with walk around areas. Park was quiet and scenic. Bathrooms were warm, very private and clean. Staff helpful and friendly. Information on local services and entertainment plentiful. I did not try Wi-Fi or Satellite or Cable TV. Would stay here again.
