Death Valley National Park Proposes Fee Changes at Furnace Creek Campground

Death Valley National Park (Park) is seeking public comments regarding pricing for nineteen improved campsites and the establishment of three new group sites in the Furnace Creek Campground.

Improvements in the Furnace Creek Campground include the installation of full hook-up capacity at nineteen campsites, replacement of the entire water and sewer system, a new bathroom in the group site areas, rehabilitation of the current bathrooms, repair of flood damaged areas in the tent walk-in loop, development of three new group sites, and a new check-in kiosk. The proposed fee increase for the full hook-up sites is an attempt to recover the cost of electricity. The nineteen rehabilitated sites now include water, sewer, and electrical hook-ups.The proposed pricing is $30.00 per night for sites offering full hook-ups. The current price for RV and Tent campsites without full-hook-ups is $18.00 per night and would remain the same price under this proposal.

Details about the proposed fee increases is available at: http://www.nps.gov/deva/parknews/furnace-creek-campground-fee-change.htm

Nightly campground fees are collected under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act, Public Law 108-447 (118 Stat. 2809), enacted by Congress as part of the 2005 Omnibus Appropriations Bill. This legislation has allowed the National Park Service to provide on-the-ground improvements to visitors at recreation sites across the nation. Death Valley National Park started the rehabilitation of Furnace Creek Campground in February 2012 and will near completion at the end of this summer.

The National Park Service is seeking input from the public and interested groups from now until May 17, 2013.A final decision will be made based on that input, as well as budgetary concerns and comparisons with similar sites elsewhere.  Please post your comments on the National Park Service Park Planning page at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/FCCG_Fee_Changes, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or comment by mail to: Attn Proposed Fee Changes, Death Valley National Park, PO Box 579, Death Valley, CA 92328.

Contact Traci Kolc at 760-786-3249 with any additional questions.

Proposed fees would begin October 15, 2013. Reservations can be made at www.recreation.gov or by calling 1-877-444-6777.
