Your Dollars At Work

One hundred percent of the fees collected at Great Basin National Park are used in the park. Campground, dump station, and Lehman Caves tour fees are mandated by the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (2004) to be used on projects with a direct visitor connection. With the funds, the park has hired fee and interpretive staff, tackled the maintenance backlog, and improved trails and campsites.

Visitor fee dollars have enabled to park to complete projects, such as:

  • Rehabilitating campground sites at Snake Creek
  • Trail maintenance in the Wheeler Cirque
  • Replacing wayside exhibits
  • Developing a park sign plan
  • Constructing the Pole Canyon Picnic Area
  • Rehabilitating the Historic Ranger Cabin in Baker, NV
