Things To Know Before You Come

Great Basin National Park provides a wonderful escape from civilization, but enjoying the solitude requires some advance planning for those used to modern conveniences. Please be aware that:

Drowsy driving is a common cause of accidents on long stretches of open road. Be sure to start long trips rested and take breaks when feeling tired.

Gas stations and grocery stores are few and far between. It is not unusual to travel 100 miles between services in western Utah and eastern Nevada. Keep the gas tank full and stock up on supplies before arriving at Great Basin National Park.

On summer weekends and holidays, lodging facilities in Baker may be full. Please call ahead or consider making reservations.
