``The Pads``- A Camp Spot With Some History ( Death Valley, Ca)

Friday, April 6, 2018

On highway 190 just outside of Death Valley National Park, we found ourselves a free overnight camp spot. No shade but quiet and plenty of privacy.
Known as "The Pads", this location's ownership is in question. It is said that the police patrol it and boondockers are not hassled. It was possibly a company town belonging to the 20-mule team people, Rio Tinto Borax. For now, there are no facilities. It's just a bunch of old slabs. While the sewer connections can be enticing for those camping with RV`s, they are not functional.
We also had a beautiful view of the mountains but had to unplug ourselves as no internet nor any nearby stores.
