Death Valley National Park in California and Nevada is the largest national park in the contiguous United States. The park's Badwater Basin is the lowest point in North America at 282 feet below sea level. Don't let the park's harsh environment keep you away. It might be the hottest, driest, and lowest of all the US national parks but it's these unique conditions that make one of the most popular to visit.
