Discussion on Death Valley National Park

FunGuy07 :

Does anyone has any suggestions on some of the nice sightseeing spots in Death Valley and best way to enter the park?

charmel5496 :
"we once spent about 6 hours there..wasn't really alot to see or do..we drove out to where the lowest point is,took some pictures then ate at a restaurant at the park entrance"
Frank :
"Badwater Basin is the lowest point, worth it for the salt flats.. Devil's golf course... the dunes in the central part of the park are neat. Definately doable in a day. Lots of pretty mountains and views, there are many different parts to the park itself too, but the main valley is where you get the most exceptional views. Be prepared to see lots of RVs, I was surprised that most of the visitors were old retirees in RVs and not tent campers (tent space is limited). The visitor's center has lots of cool maps and stuff you should go there before heading out to other parts. Just driving around in there is fun, if you love geology and earth sciences you'll have a blast! Hope you have good weather."

Maybe if they changed tha name they would have alot more visitors . BTW : what's it like there ? Is it nice ? I bet it's way better than Everglades National Park .

Boohoo for me. My family, my friend and i are going to death valley. And i had to be the one that picks the attractions. so please name the attraction and its address.

wwpetcemetery :
"There's really not much attration to see. It's mostly a visual attraction. There's Bad water, Scotties Castle, The sand dunes near furnace creek, Some off the road canyon drives. If you're not interested in history or dirt...it may be boring. If you do go..make sure you take food water and blankets/sleeping bags. and a tarp for shelter from the sun. and make sure who ever is driving..pay attention..We have run into people who run off the road and get stranded for few hours before anyone showed up. Most cell phones do not work if any. In otherwords prepare to be stuck for a whole day. Oh and the gas stations in there (2) close by 5pm..after that you are stranded untill 9am the next morning. And the rattlesnakes are starting to come out of hibernation..so be wary where you walk. Have fun."
Cairo :
"i love death valley. i recommend i 4x4 car or truck. if you like hiking, death valley is a great place to go. some good places that have easy access from main road include: Devil's Golf Course, Badwater, Zabriskie Point, Artists Palette, Dante's View, Salt Creek Interpretive Trail, Scotty's Castle and Ubehebe Crater, Stove Pipe Sand Dunes, Golden Canyon and Mosaic Canyon. my favorites are Mosaic Canyon and Ubehebe Crater. if you are up for a drive on a rough dirt road i recommend The Racetrack (long dirt road about 30miles) and Aquereberry Point (very long, narrow dirt road about 6 miles, 4x4 required). Aquereberry Pt allows you to see most of Valley, but Dante's View is similar. i hope this helps. have fun. if you need any more info, contact me"
