6 Parks near Great Basin National Park, Nevada

Verizon service here in the camp ground is good. It is on extended network and 3G. Upper camp ground is closed for construction but driving by it we had three bars. We are in site 2 writing this review.
If you have a motor home bring extra blocks to level as it can be a chalenge. Trees are overgrown and need trimed back.
Very quite campground with a stream running beside it.
We will come back. - thejbark

Site # 10 proved to be one of the ideal camping spots for us. We backed into the site and the beautiful Lehman River is flowing 30 feet behind our site. The sound of rushing water is so wonderful. We can not see any of the other 10 campsite because of all the natural foliage, can not hear them because of the river, and can not smell the smoldering campfire smoke. It is cool and beautiful here. - Scotter

Lower Lehman Campground has 11 sites, mostly pull-throughs, some of which can accommodate the largest rigs. There is no electricity, no sewer, very clean vault toilets, a few water spigots and no reservations. The cost was $6 with the Federal Senior Access Pass. By the evening of my stay, all the sites were occupied. The sites are decently spread out, with trees and understory providing good privacy. In August, the nighttime temperature dropped into the 30's. Lehman Creek runs past the campground and provides a nice, chuckling background noise. The nearby town of Baker has little to offer. Come prepared with all the supplies you will need. I would definitely stay here again, given the opportunity. - Teardrop11

This is a somewhat primitive campground located at 7,752 feet elevation and is accessible from a nice two lane road in the Great Basin National Park. Unfortunately, much of the interior asphalt road is in poor and rutted condition... likely due to the harsh winters here and lack of funding for repairs. The interior road is somewhat narrow in places with tight turns so I would absolutely NOT recommend you enter this campground with a long travel trailer or any large RV due to the twisty interior road and the fact that the sites are quite small. Truck campers, travel trailers of 18 feet or less, smaller pop-up type trailers, and tenters should do just fine here. A campground host is usually located on site, water spigots are located throughout the campground with good pressure, and pit toilets are provided. Most campsites have a picnic table and fire ring. There are no RV hookups of any kind here, and no cell service is available within the Park or in the surrounding areas. A pay phone is located at the visitor center. A holding tank dump station is located toward the park's visitor center and has potable water available. Another dump station with potable water is located on the south end of the nearby town of Baker, NV and costs $5.00. - Gyropilot

A beautiful campground at 10,000 feet with beautiful views in some sites of the surrounding mountains. Lots of trees provide shade and protection. If you can find a spot around the meadow, this is a great spot for sunset. It's also worth going out at night to see the stars! This is a rustic campground with pit toilets and water pumps scattered randomly. No electricity, no hookups. But I've always wanted to stay here for the beauty and the easy access to great mountain trails and Lehman Caves. Make sure to bring with you all the supplies and food you need, nearest store is all the way down the mountain and out of the park in Baker, NV. Bring firewood; you'll be happy to have a fire in the chilly evenings and mornings. This is a first come, first serve campground. We arrived around noon and there was only one spot left! Go up early, especially on weekends. Many people stay nearby and then come up early in the morning to get a spot at this coveted location. You pay at a kiosk and it is only $12. We were there on a Friday night and it was busy. There was a large family reunion all around us, but they had everyone settled in and quiet by 10:00 p.m. Had a very quiet and restful night. - Rhonda A

This is a beautiful wooded campground with easy access to hiking trails. If you can make it up the road it is worth it. Some sites are not level. - garlina

This is the nicest of the 3 campgrounds on Wheeler peak rd. Sites are paved and some are not very level. There are some sites big enough for a medium (say 32ft) RV. The biggest issue with this campground is that it is up a 12 mile winding road that rises about 3500 feet from the valley floor. There are some tight turns on the way up but nothing that was a problem for my 26ft coach towing a small SUV. There are several really nice hiking trails from this campground. - DennisA

Since the population of Baker, NV was around 50, I did not have high expectations for this campground. The entire campground including the sites is on packed large rocks making it very rocky to drive through the park.
We had a difficult time leveling our rig. The electrical utilities looked like they were fairly new (20/30/50 amp) and the voltage was good. The sites used to be back to back now just one rig per site. This was probably the reason why there were a number of sewer outlets available for use at each site. The water spigot was very low to the ground and located in the front of the site. We needed 30 feet of water hose to reach our rig. There were a few picnic tables and fire rings scattered around the park.
Almost all of the trees needed pruning to the point where we had to zig zag around the park to avoid the low hanging branches.
The bathhouse contained (2) showers per gender. The laundry room contains (2) washers @ $1.50 per load and (2) dryers also @ $1.50. There were other washers and dryers but they were reserved for the employees. Both the bathhouse and laundry rooms were clean and usable.
WiFi was available within the park but definitely not usable. Verizon air card and cell phone reception was good.
Overall, considering the location, it is not a bad park. I believe that this is the only FHU campground within the town of Baker. Just be aware that this is a "rustic" park. - adsaxs

Everything is gravel, sites roads (hard to distinguish between them). But everything worked. Even got TV on antenna, and decent WiFi. The big plus, the park is 100 yards from the road to the National Park. - ta96silver

Closest full hookup campground to Great Basin NP. Nice little campground, easy to get into, pull-through sites, $55 for two nights - can't beat the price for full hookups. Bathrooms were clean, but the showers need some attention/updating. The highlight was the manager and her husband - super nice folks. And there's a bar on site with an excellent selection of beer on tap and in the cooler, at great prices - definitely a bonus for a beer snob. One of the sewer connections on the site was blocked off, so we had to move the trailer to reach it after we'd unhooked. 6 miles from the Lehman Caves visitor center and the entrance to the park.
The only thing that bothered me were the family and the car load of college kids that came by the morning we left and used the restroom and shower facilities (the door was not locked) while I was using restroom. - coffmake

This is a National Park that was well worth the drive off Hwy 50. Beautiful natural alpine setting with lots of space between sites, each with fire ring/cooking grate, clean picnic table and lots of dead wood around to burn (this is allowed). The sites do require some levelers and patience and you may want to have a passenger move a few branches so that your RV isn't scratched when driving through the campground...BUT the setting and trails are extraordinary. The May wildflowers where in full bloom and the weather and temperature were pretty perfect. There were several wild turkeys walking around during daylight hours and a fairly high flow picturesque stream that ran through the entire area. The Visitor Center was very helpful in directing us to the areas that most likely to have sites open. We will definitely be back...hopefully we can make it to the top at Wheeler campground at 13,000 ft. next time when it isn't still in snow. - 2Openspaces

This campground is in a beautiful but rough area. Sites and facilities have recently been reworked but few are level and most are pretty rough. Roads could use some additional work as well. About three miles of not too bad gravel road to get to the campground. Baker creek runs through the campground but few sites actually border the creek. It was cold, windy, and rainy while we were there, it would no doubt look better in sunny weather. Dump station available near entrance to the park. There is gas and a store with limited stock in Baker and a larger gas station and store near the state line on Hwy 50. - oldmac

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. - Bob and Inga

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. - FrankTX
