DVJ is at the intersection of Highway 190 and 127, adjacent to the eastern entrance of Death Valley National Park, and a few miles from the Nevada border. Las Vegas is less than two hours away, due east.
In 2018, Death Valley National Park set an attendance record with 1,678,660 visitors, moving it into the Top 50 Most Popular National Parks. Because of the park’s popularity, Marta Becket’s legacy and the continued search by intrepid travels for “the middle of nowhere” Destination: Death Valley Junction was formed in 2019. The Destination provides helpful information on DVJ and the National Park, and things to see and do – whether you’re here online or there IRL.
