Dead Sea camping- the best way to know this amazing place
Ein Gedi campsite- is abandoned!

Veteran hikers remember the great camping site on Ein Gedi beach. Unfortunately, due to the geological conditions, sinkholes destroyed this site. You can see it from road 90 near the Ein Gedi Reserve and observe the power of nature.
When to go camping in the Dead Sea?
Because of it’s unique location (lowest point on earth),
the Dead Sea is a hot area with high temperatures.
Winter is therefore a great time to travel & camp here.
In summer, it can get extremely hot and is not recommended for hiking.
You could go camping in summer, just remember that many free camping sites have no shade and no water. The best seasons are spring and fall when its not too cold at night and not too hot during the day.

Getting there: The northern area is around a hour away from Jerusalem by car. Masada & Ein Bokek are another hour southward.
Bus: #486 from Jerusalem to Ein Bokek, through Qumran, Ein Feshkha, Metzukey Dragot, Ein Gedi and Masada.
