Yes, Panamint Springs is for sale. My dad can no longer take care of this place due to his health.
We have had much interest in the sale of the property from private investors as well as NPS. NPS has filed for emergency funding, that has been approved at the regional level and is now in Washington DC for further approval.
While NPS has the purchase in process, there have been no papers signed or conditions set.
My dad has done many things during his time in Death Valley. He deserves to retire and not worry about who runs the place or how it's ran. However, if we had our wishes a tribe of Indians would come in here and purchase it and set up the only casino in a National Park.
He with the most money wins.
