In the arid Great Basin of eastern California lies Death Valley National Park, the largest national park in the lower 48 United States. Each point of interest is labeled with available visitor services. For backcountry trip planning we recommend either the Tom Harrison "Death Valley National Park Recreation Map", or the National Geographic "Death Valley National Parks Illustrated" map. High temperatures in July, the park’s hottest month, can average 113 degrees Fahrenheit. Death Valley National Park maps available from Harpers Ferry Center. These maps are available from the Death Valley Natural History Association. As the name of the park suggests, it is the hottest and driest national park with temperatures reaching “deadly” highs. Choose your route depending on whether you want speed, ease, or scenery. This is a Las Vegas to Death Valley road map (150 kb), describing alternate routes to reach Death Valley from Las Vegas, NV.
