Death Valley National Park is open year-round, with over 1 million visitors each year.

Getting Here and Getting Around

The Oasis at Death Valley is located in Death Valley National Park. 

Like many national park properties, The Oasis is in a remote, isolated destination. However, unlike many national park settings, the Oasis is situated 120 miles west of Las Vegas, NV and 275 miles east of Los Angeles. The nearest municipality for activities such as shopping for daily items, vehicle servicing and doctors' and government offices, is Pahrump, NV, 60 miles or one hour driving time east of property.

New employees, who do not arrive by own conveyance, can schedule an employee shuttle pick up from several points in the Las Vegas metro area. Flights into McCarron International Airport (LAS) run often from all over the country. (It's Las Vegas, after all). Along with LAS pick-ups, we offer transportation from the Greyhound Bus Station and your hotel. We recommend the Best Western McCarron (near the airport) and the Excalibur (on the strip). Employee transportation to property occurs on Mondays and Tuesdays and must be scheduled prior to arrival

Bringing one's own vehicle offers flexibility for recreation during time off and exploring the area. NOTE: Personal vehicles should be prepared to operate in extreme temperature conditions. The Oasis operates an on-property gas station for gasoline. 

For Fun

Death Valley is the largest U.S. National Park outside Alaska at 3.4 million acres and is renowned for being one of the driest and hottest places on earth, where you will find natural wonders unknown in any other part of the world.

It is hot, hot, hot here but we have lots of fun in the sun. You will be able to visit some of the most unique places on earth (check our photos out), play golf, go horseback riding, and just enjoy working in a remote well-known vacation spot!
