Access Pass holders receive a 50% discount on camping and cave tour fees. While Great Basin does not charge an entrance fee, it will also cover the cost of entrance at all National Park Sites across the United States.
Brief tours of the first room of the cave, the Gothic Palace, are available for those unable to negotiate the stairs and narrow passageways of the tour route. Participants join the tour into the first room of the tour route, and are escorted out of the cave by a ranger. Another friend or family member must be available to assist visitors in non-motorized wheelchairs.
Please be advised that wheelchairs are not available at the park. First room tours may not be available on every tour, depending on staffing levels.
Service animals are allowed in all park facilities, Lehman Caves, and on all park trails. National Park Service policy defines a service animal as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. The tasks performed by the animal must be directly related to the person’s disability. Emotional support, therapy, comfort or companion animals are not considered service animals.
Call 911 for emergency medical or police assistance or to report accidents or injuries.
