Find Your Oasis

The Oasis at Death Valley

Don’t let the name fool you. Death Valley has a completely new lodging experience that’s all about being alive! Here are five amazing ways to find your oasis in the Lower 48’s largest national park.

One Resort, Two Unique Stays

The new Oasis at Death Valley offers two distinct accommodations: the elegant mission-style four-diamond Inn at Death Valley, and The Ranch at Death Valley—an adventure-focused charmer with a true American West ethos. Ideally located next to the park’s visitor center, The Ranch has a classic town square with a new restaurant, ice cream and coffee bar, general store, and the iconic Last Kind Words Saloon (which feels straight out of a Western movie).

Sample Itinerary: Float in a muscle-relaxing 87-degree spring-fed pool, explore the park’s hiking trails, and be back for a sunset dinner at The Inn Dining Room, overlooking the mountains.

After dark, relax around fire pits while staring up at the stars. Book your stay at The Oasis at Death Valley by calling (800) 236-7916.

Your Lowest Round—Guaranteed

Got game? The Furnace Creek Golf Course at Death Valley sure does! At 214 feet below sea level, it’s the lowest-elevation golf course in the world. It’s also one of the most scenic, with palm and tamarisk trees framing fairways and mountain views all along its 18-hole, par 70 course. (Use promo code GOLF for a good deal on the Ultimate Golf Package.) Fore sure!

Shutterbug Love

The sunrise light at Zabriskie Point will make even the average photographer look like a pro. Join other photo-happy revelers and watch the sun make its entrance, slowly washing over the golden badlands at Death Valley’s signature viewpoint. Afterwards, head to the northern end of the valley to check out Ubehebe Crater, a 770-foot-deep volcanic wonder in a moonscape environment. Hike down into it, walk a mile around it, or hike 1 mile to Little Hebe Crater (recommended).

Just Dune It!

Enjoy one of the world’s premier picnic spots—the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes—just 2 miles east of Stovepipe Wells in Death Valley National Park. Park on the side of Highway 190 and start walking north. The tallest dune is about a mile away, with plenty of others rolling in the foreground. Pick a dune, climb its spine, and enjoy a picnic while waiting for the show: a sunset that colors the mountains in changing shades of rose and violet. Don’t leave too soon: This is a choice spot for stargazing or watching your moonshadow.

Canyon Hike

Take an afternoon hike through Golden Canyon, a giant slot canyon glowing with orange, yellow, and red shades of sandstone. After a mile, take the offshoot trail toward Gower Gulch (a map is available at the visitor center). Skirt below the Manly Beacon sandstone formation, where the texture resembles swirls of giant marble ice cream. The trail runs through the quiet and narrow Gower Gulch, which is filled with old borax—Death Valley’s signature export from the 20 Mule Teams of yore.

Hike at Death Valley and stay at the Oasis at Death Valley

The Oasis at Death Valley is ideally located in the heart of Death Valley National Park, offering modern amenities among historic touches, and plenty of options for romantic getaways to adventurous excursions.
