Remember Nov. 3 the park was shut down because of guidelines issued by the Governors of CA and NV. People sometimes get confused with that kind of stuff.

Oh how we wish, or at least myself wishes... that the Saline Valley would be under complete control by the Native People, the Shoshone. The area of the size of the state of Connecticut, being public land, is now private by the government... no trespass or face a fine, is just fu#$%@!  This paradigm shift of power now is unbelievable! Don't do what I do, just do what I say... Keep this in mind come November 3rd!

The National Park Service (NPS) is working servicewide with federal, state, and local authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic.

Effective Saturday, April 4, 2020, Death Valley National Park will be closed to all park visitors until further notice. California State Highway 190 and Daylight Pass will remain open for pass through traffic. Park rangers remain on duty protecting the parks, and normal rules and regulations continue to apply.

We will notify the public when we resume full operations and provide updates on our website and social media channels.
