Considering that Death Valley is the largest park in the lower 48 states, I would always recommend that you stay longer! There is a lot of park to be seen in such a short period of time, and Death Valley has a lot to offer whether you are auto-touring or hiking. Just remember that there is a vast range of temperatures throughout the park, so be sure to being layers for chilli desert nights!

Our favorites are the Salt Flats, Racetrack Playa, and the Dunes. With three days you may have time to see them all!
