Description:      The 2016 Death Valley Zodiac will be Feb 7-12.  If you are planning on attending the zodiac this year and are bringing your RV there are still about 14 sites w/ full hookups at the Furnace Creek NPS campground.  Go to recreation.gov to make reservations.  Search for Furnace Creek campground.  Fill in the info in the left hand column with the above dates and particulars about your RV and number of occupants and pick your site from the list that comes up.  For those that are staying at the Furnace Creek Ranch you call 1-800-236-7916.  There is a choice between the Ranch and the Resort.  Of the two the Ranch is the most economical.  Also, make sure to get the senior discount with 3 or more nights.  There are is also camping at Texas Springs campground which is under $14 a night.  However, there are no hookups and no showers.  And if that's to much to pay you can stay at Sunset campground across from Furnace Creek Ranch for only $12 a night.  This is basically a large parking lot with a restroom.  Now for showers, you can purchase a pool pass every day which is good all that day for the pool and showers.  Last year they were $5 a day.
