"Badwater 1980" Top 5 Page for this destination Badwater Tip by JLBG

Badwater, Death Valley National Park: 41 reviews and 67 photos


Here we are in Badwater. This picture was taken in 1980 and the elevation was 280 feet under sea level. In 2003, it was 282 feet and it keeps sinking ! The pressure of the air is heavier than at sea level but it does not make any difference that could be felt.

Directions: South along Hwy-178 from Furnace Creek.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
