Winter Destination: Death Valley National Park

By January 10, 2014

Follow me on:

Death ValleyDeath Valley National Park is open year round, but the winter season is a favorite for campers since the weather is more comfortable. Temperatures begin to moderate, dropping below the 100-degree mark, in mid October and the peak visitor season runs through the cool winter and spring months into the middle of April.

There are nine national park campgrounds with varying facilities and seasons. The low elevation campgrounds, with the exception of the Furnace Creek Campground, close during the long summer months because of the extreme heat. Several higher elevation campgrounds and camping areas in the mountains remain open year-round.
