This is a primarily a camping trip, but you can rent your own hotel room or RV spot if you act quickly.

Note: hotel rooms and RV spots book up quickly! Reserve them ASAP if you want either of these options!

You will want reservations at Furnace Creek Ranch (probably not the Inn) for March 10, 11 and 12 (departing March 13). The Ranch costs less and is quite near to the campground.

If you can’t get a place in the Furnace Creek campground for your RV, you can try the Fiddlers' Campground or the Furnace Creek Ranch Campground (reservations needed).

The first night you will have the option to camp at the Trona Pinnacles or rent your own room at Ridgecrest about 30 minutes away. The Trona Pinnacles does not have designated camp sites. People can park and pitch tents anywhere, and our group will locate a great spot where we can spend the night near each other. There is a pit toilet available.

CIR will supply camp sites and you will bring all of your own camping gear (tent, sleeping gear, etc.) and most of your own food. We will supply stoves, pots and pans for your use, and one group dinner at Furnace Creek campground. At Furnace Creek, the sites have water, flush toilets and tables; access to showers, a pool, restaurants, and a small store are nearby. Bring your own meals and ice chests; ice will be available at Furnace Creek.
