In addition to a number of personal trips to Death Valley, thanks goes out to the Death Valley National Park guide books, the guides at Scotty’s Castle, and the park Rangers for helping supply information for this article.
In the park at the ranger station or visitor centers you can pick up the approximately 65 page free green cover National Park guide to Death Valley, or the long black striped free map to Death Valley.
There is also a newspaper styled guide that is called “a Visitor’s Guide to Death Valley.” This contains articles and current information about the park.
