There are several areas to camp in the
back country. You need to check if there
are any restrictions.

I've heard several times what a disaster it
would be if your car breaks down in Death
Valley, but it can be quite the opposite. One
night there was a young couple that had a flat
tire. Every person that drove by, stopped to
help. About 20 -30 people had gathered around
and it turned into a little party. The kid's tire got
changed, someone set up a tent for them, and
needless to say, some good food. So you can
tell people that "Death Valley is the best place
to break down". (But seriously, if your in the
back country, there might not be anybody
around and temperatures are more extreme
than you would imagine.)
