If you love the outdoors, Great Basin National Park is the place for you! Whether you enjoy camping in beautiful campgrounds, hiking on lightly visited trails, or stargazing under one of the darkest night skies in the country, you will find it all at Great Basin. For those venturing to the park in the winter, skiing and snowshoeing opportunities abound.
