      Emigrant Campground is a basic but very convenient free campsite located alongside the California State Route 190 in the middle of Death Valley. It is a maintained campsite with ten spaces, each with a picnic table and a parking spot outlined with rocks. Great desert views and the clear night sky makes for great stargazing opportunities.

      If you go:
      Campsites are on a first come first serve basis. There are trash cans on site. There are restrooms a short distance away at the rest stop just to the north, but not within the campsite area. While Emigrant Campground is free, you do have to pay the normal entrance fee to Death Valley National Park. The fee can be paid at the ranger station in nearby Stovepipe Wells. There are no RV hookups. Be sure to drink plenty of water, even in the winter.
