Camping At The Great Basin National Park, Nevada

When it comes to lodging, the options outside of the Great Basin National Park in Nevada are more then within the park itself and consist of hotels, motels and vacation rentals.

Great Basin National Park only has campgrounds and back country sites available and the costs are either $10 a night per site, or free when you opt for one of the primitive campgrounds.

There are five campgrounds to choose from with restrooms, tent pads, fire rings and picnic tables. Most of the campgrounds are open during the months of May through September, but provide drinking water only during the summer.

Some primitive campsites are open throughout the year. However, you may not find drinking water available at all of them. There are dump stations near the Visitor Center, for which you will pay a $3 fee and those provide drinking water during the summer, but are closed in the winter. If you plan on using water from creeks, ensure to boil it well!

The number of sites range from 32 to 37 and offer accommodations for up to eight people and two vehicles. They go on a first come, first serve base and a couple are wheel chair accessible such as the Upper Lehman Creek Campground and Wheeler Peak Campground.

Your stay is allowed for up to two weeks and in case you bring your pet, make sure it is kept on a leash and don't take it with you when you go hiking and exploring: pets are not allowed in the backcountry and on the trails!
