:This article refers to the natural feature "Zabriskie Point" in Death Valley National Monument. For the 1970 movie, see Zabriskie Point (film); for the soundtrack album see Zabriskie Point (album).

Zabriskie Point is a section of Death Valley National Park (in the United States) noted for its erosional landscape. The terrain is referred to as badlands because it is very difficult to grow plants there. It is composed of sediments from Furnace Creek Lake, which dried up 5 million years ago — long before Death Valley came into existence. The landscape is in danger of being eroded away due to a nearby diversion of a water channel.
