Death Valley National Park charges an entrance fee year-round. More information can be found on the fees and passes page.
Please note that some activities, like staying in park campgrounds, have additional costs.
Holders of a current pass that is part of the nationwide America the Beautiful Annual series do not need to pay the park entrance fee. Learn more about the America the Beautiful nationwide pass program.
Death Valley is the largest U.S. National Park outside Alaska at 3,422,024 acres. Nearly 1,000 miles of paved and dirt roads provide access to locations both popular and remote. Even so, 93% of the park is protected as officially designated Wilderness. That wild country includes low valley floors crusted with barren salt flats, rugged mountains rising as much as 11,000 feet, deep and winding canyons, rolling sand dunes, and spring-fed oases. Whether you have an afternoon or a week, careful planning will help make your visit safe and enjoyable.
