Death Valley NP dealing with illegal camping, off-road driving during shutdown

Death Valley National Park continues to struggle with poor behavior by some visitors during the ongoing partial government shutdown, with off-road enthusiasts going where they shouldn't, and campers camping where they shouldn't.

"The park has had issues with illegal off-roading and out of bounds camping," Andrew S. Muñoz, the Park Service's acting chief of public and congressional affairs told the Traveler in an email Wednesday. "We don't have any photos for release at the moment. We have documented several instances of new off-road tracks, including evidence of vehicles doing 'donuts' in the desert."
