The Campground itself is more suitable for RV and Trails and has the feeling of a large parking lot. However, it does contain some tent sites along the northern edge of the campsite. For tent campers, Stovepipe Wells leave much to be desired in my opinion as I prefer not to be surrounded by a sea of land yachts.

The tent sites are the only locations which allow fires and since you are on the edge of the campground you can get the feeling of isolation provided you are looking North. High winds and sandstorms at night are frequent.

There are some nice hikes nearby which include the local sand dunes, Mosaic Canyon, Nemo Canyon and Grotto Canyon.

Additionally, the Mesquite Flat Sand dunes located just to the east of the camp ground offers a nice area to explore, if the weather cooperates.
