Mesquite Springs Campground

Campground in Death Valley National Park

In the northern reaches of the park, this first-come, first-served campground has only 40 spaces and is a handy base for Ubehebe Crater and Racetrack Rd. At an elevation of 1800ft, it's also a lot cooler than the desert floor. Sites come with fire pits and tables, and there's water and flush toilets.
