No camp fires allowed outside of developed campgrounds per the DV website.

Until you cross the National Park boundary into the Silver state's Amorgosa desert.

Plus, don't forget, you need to be two miles or so off the paved road before you make camp.

HA HA, No Terry I'll save the steps for the bike. I've seen pics and vids of the steps and that would probably cost me in the Chevy. Just looking for a non campground camp area not too far from downtown Furnace Creek.

Texas Springs is close, usually more quiet, no generators. Still, $14 a nite.

Echo Canyon much closer, just head up the washboard to the mouth of the canyon, pull over, plenty of spots to camp. If I can do it my low-clearance TDI with bashplate, anyone in any truck can do it.

Andrew, I think you're thinking of Mesquite Springs CG, up near Scotty's. Texas Springs CG is across the street from Furnace Creek CG, same driveway as Sunset CG but further up the hill.

Anyway, Texas Springs CG is not a bad spot if you go to the upper loop and grab one of the sites on the left, where a small wash and trees provide some separation from the parking lot atmosphere of the rest of the CG. And as the other poster mentioned, no generators allowed in Texas Springs.

To OP: possible primitive camping up Hole in the Wall Rd, subject to 2 miles from pavement restriction. Its a little further up the road from Echo Pass Rd. But no campfires.

Oh yeah, Texas Springs is right down there, yes. I still like Echo Canyon jeep road for getting well away from the crowds, but close to Furnace Creek. Strictly primitive camping, though... here was our kitchen table:
