John, you must have been at Stovepipe Wells as it has hookups and is a parking lot style campground. Or you drove by Furnace
Creek and saw the large parking lot, dry camp area across the road.
But the place to go is, Furnace
Creek FSCG is behind the Visitors Center. It has relatively large campsites but dry. They do have a flush potty and a dump station. I can't remember if or where I got water. It doesn't seem like it was in the campground unless it was at the dump station or potty. Sort of seems like it might have been at the Gas Station next to the Visitor Center. In my humble opinion this is the nicest campground. Plus there's a golf right next door, although I haven't as yet played there, haven't been carrying my clubs on my camp trips.
