DEATH VALLEY, Calif. – May The Fourth – March 18, 2019  When families and people watch the 1977 movie Star Wars is at The Oasis at Death Valley, it starts inevitable tales of when the movie’s director came to this true American Oasis in 3.3 million square miles of desert, oasis and mountain national park to film and transport people to another galaxy.

Past generations of employees have shared stories with newer generations and certainly know where the movie locations are. These include the breathtakingly and picturesque locations throughout Death Valley National Park including Dante's View, Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, Desolations Canyon, Artist's Drive and Golden Canyon – all just a quick 20 to 40 minute drive from the Resort.
