If you are really adventurous you can also try the backcountry camping. National Park Service asks that you follow rules and guidelines. You can call or visit their website for more information.
Just one final important note, keep weather in mind before you decide to camp. Temperatures can get dangerously hot in Death Valley and it is known as the hottest place in America.
