    Default Death Valley

    Hi,

    We are planning our road trip for this summer and for part of the schedule planned to do the following

    Day 1 Drive Las Vegas to Death Valley - Stay Furnace Creek
    Day 2 Drive to Mammoth Lakes
    Day 3 See Mammoth Lakes area
    Day 4 Drive Tioga Pass

    We have left it too late and cannot get into Furnace Creek on our preferred travel date. Where is the next best place to stay between Furnace Creek and Mammoth ?

    If you still want to stay in the park, there are other lodging options beyond Furnace Creek. Stovepipe Wells is one place, and I think there could be another one or two. I haven't stayed at any of them, but Stovepipe Wells had a nice little store where I stocked up on camping supplies.

    UK,
    Panamint Springs is popular with many UK tourists, (a bit rustic) but fun. Ridgecrest has lodging, but my favorite town for over-night stops is Bishop.
