DAY 5 > BEATTY TO FURNACE CREEK, DEATH VALLEY
Furnace Creek is an oasis in the middle of the desert – a lush area amidst the bare rocks, dunes and salt flats that make up Death Valley National Park. We suggest the National Park Campground adjacent to the Visitor Center. It has showers, toilets, and is a short walk from Furnace Creek Inn – a local ranch-style hotel with restaurant, golf course and horse riding. Great location for visiting all that Death Valley has to offer www.nps.gov
✪ 40 miles - 1 hour
DAY 7 > DEATH VALLEY TO BAKER
Exit Death Valley on the Badwater Road, stopping at ‘Badwater’ the lowest point in North America. Walk out onto the salt flats and cast your eyes around the surrounding scenery.... it’s like nothing you have seen before. As you exit the Park, you will go through Shoshone where you may want to stop for a beer or maybe lunch. Now drive south, through the San Bernardino Valley, alongside Death Valley, to the town of Baker on the edge of the Mojave National Preserve www.nps.gov Drive south into Mojave National Preserve. Two developed, family style campgrounds, the Mid Hills Campground and Hole-in-the-Wall Campground, are available year-round www.nps.gov

DAY 7 >BAKER TO LAS VEGAS
Head northeast out of the Preserve toward Searchlight. Possibly you will experience national security checks as you approach the Dam itself but its totally non-invasive so no worries. At Hoover Dam www.usbr.gov you will be amazed at this man-made structure which controls the water from the Colorado River, feeding Nevada and California. Following this, our suggestion is that you drive back to Las Vegas Oasis Resort for your last night in the motorhome, maybe via Boulder and the Hoover Dam Museum www.bcmha.org
