Like every where else on the Mojave the wind on the deck can be unpredictable. The AARs for Furnace Creek and Stovepipe Wells are full of wind related accidents. Both airports are VFR and no FBO. Furnace Creek gets a fair amount of traffic up to and including small jets. I have seen near misses in the pattern at Furnace Creek.
Another issue that you need to look at are possible NPS area and altitude restrictions.
