It’s about making great connections, exploring amazing places, discovering open spaces, enjoying affordable vacations and enhancing America’s best idea—the national parks! Together we can connect and create the next generation of park visitors, supporters and advocates.

To encourage families of all sizes and ages to explore Death Valley National Park and the other beautiful parks throughout the country, Furnace Creek Resort has created the FIND YOUR PARK package. Book our two night Find Your Park Package at either the Inn at Furnace Creek or Furnace Creek Ranch and receive an “America the Beautiful – the National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Pass” (an $80.00 value) which provides complimentary access to all National Parks, Bureau of Land Management, and other federal lands for a full year. For details of how the pass works, click here. Your pass will be issued upon arrival and must be validated by one of the rangers at the Death Valley Visitor Center adjacent to the Furnace Creek Ranch. The package must be reserved at least 10 days prior to arrival and is based upon availability – currently the package is being offered until December 29, 2016. Resort fees and occupancy taxes are additional. Book Your Trip

2016 marks the Centennial of the National Park Service, but did you know that Furnace Creek Resort has been hosting guests in Death Valley long before it was designated as a National Park?

The U.S. Borax company opened the Inn at Furnace Creek on February 1, 1927 with 12 guest rooms. Six years later, President Franklin Roosevelt established Death Valley as a National Monument. Finally in 1994, sixty seven years after the Furnace Creek Inn opened its doors; congress established Death Valley as a National Park.
