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. We camped at Wheeler Peak Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Wheeler Peak Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

The most significant thing to mention about this remote campground inside Great Basin National Park is its 9,886 foot altitude and the 12 mile winding steep (8% grade) twisting access road which leads to it. The National Park Service prohibits single vehicles and trailers in excess of 24 feet in length on the road leading to this campground beyond the Upper Lehman Creek Campground, so this campground is effectively limited to truck campers, small travel trailers, and tenters. It's a beautiful campground with lots of trees, and smallish back-in sites (except for one small pull through site). The asphalt interior roads are smooth but narrow and twisty. Water spigots are scattered throughout the campground. A campground host is located on site seasonally. There is no cell service here or anywhere in the park and surrounding areas. A pay phone is available at the visitor's center. A holding tank dump station with potable water is located near the visitor center some 13 miles away and costs $5.00. Another holding tank dump station with potable water is located in nearby Baker, NV on the south side of town near the self-service fuel pumps. We camped at Wheeler Peak Campground (NPS Campground) in a Tent Trailer.
