Agree with prior reviews. Great for quick overnight stay and is close to Great Basin National Park. If you are looking for a swimming pool and exercise room, look elsewhere! We had a good meal at the restaurant, possibly the best thing we found about this place. Verizon has 3G only so it was very slow. Verizon phone service OK. We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed 4 nights while visiting Great Basin National Park. This place isn't really in Baker, it's on US 50 east of Baker. As others have said, just a big parking lot in the back of the gas station/restaurant/casino. You just go in the store, pay, and pick a site that is open. We were lucky and got one that had small trees on each side, providing some shade from the blistering hot temperatures. We didn't notice the dog poop as mentioned in previous reviews. It was about 13 miles from here to the entrance to Great Basin NP. When I called for reservations in May, the person on the phone said they were not needed, she has been here 20 years and they have never been full. There are lots of things going on as this is the only fuel service for 100 miles in both directions on US 50. Our Verizon hotspot worked fine, and of course satellite was perfect. The dirt and dust is a factor, but in all fairness, the area is under a long term drought, so it was to be expected. Plus, the average rainfall in August is less than an inch. We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Motorhome.

There is a 4 star restaurant (Kerouac's) in the tiny town of Baker, a few miles away. Be prepared for long waits or get there early. The food is unique, but very good. The bartender makes a non-alcoholic drink that is delicious. Don't miss the Lehman Cave tour at Great Basin NP. One of the best we've been on. Go up on the road to Wheeler Peak at night and around 9000 ft there is a great spot to look at the stars. Incredible!

Previous reviewer is spot on. There is dog poop everywhere at various stages of drying to dust in the arid environment! The gas station/restaurant/store/casino is right on US 50 (America's Loneliest Highway) and right on the Nevada/Utah border. The RV park immediately behind the building is a dusty lot with full hookups. One night I woke up to take a dog out. When I returned to bed, I could hear a car coming down the highway some miles away. After several minutes, this car turned in the lot and drove around every RV before driving off! Yes, all my outside compartments were locked. The long-term residents let their dogs run loose and have quite a collection of junk around their RVs and mobile homes. They also start up their old diesel pickups around 5:30am . . . loud! However, there is just not much choice in Baker. If we return, we might try staying at the other RV park in town. Otherwise, I guess we would be forced back to the Border Inn. However, next time, I will get out of the truck to inspect which space has the least desiccating dog poop before pulling in. For what one gets, $25/night is a little steep. We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Great Basin National Park is a must see! The tour through Lehman Cave was wonderful and a must do! Take the hike up to the Bristlecone Pine grove! It is amazing to see trees that are over 3,500 years old!

As other reviewers have said this is a no frills park but works great for an overnighter or two. It is very easy access from US50 and just turn up and pay at the motel/gas station and pick your own spot. The restrooms are old but clean. There is no wifi but we were told it is available in the restaurant motel area, we did not try it so can't comment on how good or bad it is. It is convenient for visiting the Great Basin NP. We have marked it down mainly due to the amount of dog poo that is everywhere. We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is located on US 50 at the NV/UT border. Very little traffic so noise is not an issue. Check in was easy, pay at the store and pick a spot. It's basically a large open lot with hookups. The utilities worked fine. There was a picnic table in our site but it was too weathered to use it. However we did see staff making repairs to other tables nearby. It's about a 15-20 min drive to GBNP. We ate at the restaurant a couple of times and the food was good. The staff was friendly and we'd stay here again if ever in the area. We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Large (good) gravel lot with some landscaping separating large pull thru transient sites. Paid inside and was told to pick my own site, great! Level. Had a burger and beer in the restaurant, was good. Lots of slot machines in bar. Satellite friendly. I'd stay here again. We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Motorhome.

While the Great Basin National Park area provides many camping options, they diminish quickly when one is in a large RV. Consequently, the Border Inn provided a good option for me. While it is basically a large gravel area out in the open, my site was level and had great hookups. Another bonus was plenty of open maneuvering room for my motorhome and tow car. Not much else in the way of amenities, but I spent most of my time in the beautiful national park. I did not eat at the adjoining restaurant or entertain myself at the small casino. We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Grand Basin National Park is a real gem. It is a quiet park with plenty of varied scenery, great hiking trails and the beautiful drive up to Mt. Wheeler. The rangers are very helpful and enthusiastic about the park. The evening astronomy programs were incredibly interesting and well-presented. The small, nearby town of Baker is quite quaint and home to Kerouac's Restaurant, which has great food and an impressive full bar.

Level pull through sites. Utilities well placed. Good stop if visiting Great Basin NP. No amenities. No tv, OTA or cable. Sat tv probably ok but I don't have it. Verizon signal strong but shows as extended network, 3G. Restrooms looked adequate only, didn't use though. Laundry shares space with storage room. Two washers and dryers plus two commercial dryers, again didn't use. Restaurant, small casino and gas station out front. Was told to pick any open site. As other reviewer commented, sites have complementary dog droppings which I had to clean up before I would let my dogs walk outside out site. Pretty old and warped picnic table.although close to highway it seemed to be reasonably quiet. No dog run. We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Motorhome.

We paid $25 plus 11% tax for a large level pull-through with 50 amp full hookups. Most sites came with a pile or two of dog crap at no extra charge. If you look up 'the middle of nowhere', this is it. The review about 47 over-the-air stations was that poster's idea of a joke. No OTA TV reception here at all. Verizon cell and broadband both on extended 3G networks. The broadband varied with the time of day, OK early (very) AM and not usable at all in the PM. This is a 24 hour establishment with a lot of very early traffic. There are several mobile home style trailers here and the people who live in them just drive through any empty site. So we had traffic passing through the empty site next to us. A Sysco food delivery truck towing tandem came in before 6 AM with his delivery in the rear trailer. Lots of shuffling around for that. There really are no other options around if you have a decent RV. We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Basic gravel parking lot with mostly level full hookup sites, laundry room, bathroom and showers looked average (I didn't use). No WiFi at sites, extremely slow WiFi inside the café - it was satellite based and weather dependent. Verizon had phone signal, but no web or data. In fairness, this is an extremely remote area, and you have to plan on being out of touch with the outside world. We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a gravel parking lot in the middle of nowhere on the "lonliest road in America". We wanted to visit Great Basin National Park and there wasn't much to choose from. They had full hook-ups which worked well. We were able to get satellite and Verizon service. We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great Basin National Park was terrific. Take time to acclimate to the elevation before hiking Wheeler Peak. I didn't and unfortunately I got sick. This national park is really nice and very remote. The Lehman Caves tour was wonderful!!

If you intend to visit Great Basin National Park, and are unable to squeeze into one of the nine (dry) sites in the NP, then this is the place for you. Full hook ups on a large gravel lot. No shade, no frills, no problem. I took a peek at the men's bathroom. It was tired and worn, with no tp on the roll. Other than that, staff was friendly and restaurant breakfast abundant. This park was perfect for us on our way to Great Basin and westward on "America's Loneliest Highway" (US 50). We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you are visiting Great Basin NP and want hook ups there are two choices and this is the better of the two. Basically a gravel parking lot with full hookups behind a gas station and a small casino. Has WiFi but is so slow that it is basically useless. Office folks were pleasant and the rate is pretty low. The food in the cafe inside the casino is okay.

Parking lot behind small casino, all gravel sites with hookups. Sites wide, level, no trees, all pull-through sites. Not very good but reasonable place to stop for a night and close to Grand Basin Nat'l Park. Small casino, nice restaurant, small store and gas station. Would stay again only if in the area.
