Charcoal Kilns - Review

The Charcoal Kilns is a compilation of 25 feet tall beehive structures regarded as the best surviving example of the kilns in the western states. The historical architecture of the kilns is indeed commendable and exhibits an elegant view. The charcoal kilns are therefore a much recommended attraction in the Death Valley.

Charcoal Kilns, Death Valley National Park Reviews

  • This is a fantastic, relatively unknown location in Death Valley National Park. The climate here is much better than in Death Valley itself. The temperatures are very pleasant. The kilns are fascinating. This is a great stop for a picnic and strolling around the ruins. Great trip to take to get relief from the hotter temperatures in Death Valley. Highly recommend.

  • This is one of the coolest things to see in Death Valley. The last two miles of the road are not paved and can be rough. The road to the kilns is awesome as well. The kilns look very cool, they look like they could still be used today if they were needed.

  • We had a great time, my kids loved to echo inside the kilns. The weather was nice too, good place to beat the heat for a day.

  • Very cool historic site in Death Valley National Park. There are some really nice hiking trails in the area. A bit of a drive to get there as it's up in the hills aways but you don't have to drive too far on gravel to get there. There are rustic campgrounds nearby. There are toilets at the parking lot but it is a pit toilet.

  • The Kilns are in amazing condition. A short dirt road drive will get you there. There's also a hiking trail to higher elevation for an amazing view. The elevation is quite high and it does get cold in the winter months. I was there in late Oct 2017. The Kilns is a great place for night photography. Because it's tucked away in the mountains, not much sunset/sunrise photo action.
