“Camping in Death Valley will offer you a once in a lifetime experience. Imagine 3 million acres of mystical desertland filled with abandoned ghost towns, gold mines, 300 miles of road and some of the darkest skies in the United States. Welcome to Death Valley National Park, located a mere two hours away from Las Vegas and right on the border of California and Nevada.”
“Rain is rare in Death Valley, in fact, Death Valley is the driest place in the USA. In 1929, there was not a single drop of rain recorded in Death Valley and on July 10, 1913, the record for the hottest temperature ever recorded on the planet was recorded at Furnace Creek, topping out at 134 degrees Fahrenheit. Visitors can pick up a free novelty postcard from the Visitor’s Center.”
