Winter in Death Valley National Park

The winter months are the most popular time of the year for travelers to explore this surreal and quietly captivating California park. The largest national park in the continental U.S. with 3.3 million acres, there is plenty of park to explore. Compared with other major national parks, however, it has relatively low visitation, with only 704,122 people visiting in 2007.

The park’s four lodges, two RV parks and nine campgrounds provide overnight accommodations for Death Valley visitors. Concessioner Xanterra Parks & Resorts operates three lodges –Furnace Creek Inn, Furnace Creek Ranch and Stovepipe Wells – as well as an RV Park. Campgrounds are managed by the National Park Service.
