Great Basin National Park has five developed campgrounds with vault toilets, picnic tables, tent pads, and campfire grills. There are no hookups or leveled parking sites. Each campsite is limited to eight people, three tents and two vehicles. There are three campgrounds with accessible sites. One primitive campground can be found along Snake Creek Road.
Lower Lehman Creek is the only campground open year-round. Other campgrounds are generally open May-through-October, weather permitting. Water may not be available early and late in the season. Since exact opening and closing dates are dependent on weather conditions, contact a visitor center at (775) 234-7331 or check our current conditions online before arrival.
Most park camping is on a first-come, first-served basis, but reservations can be made for some sites at the Grey Cliffs Campground from the end of May to the end of September. All camping reservations are now handled by Recreation.gov.
Non-reservable campsites may not be "saved" or reserved for family or friends arriving later.
$12.00 for developed campgrounds per night/per site.
$6.00 for Golden Age/Golden Access card holders.
Strawberry Creek Campground and Snake Creek Campground have no fee.
Large groups can be accommodated at the Grey Cliffs Campground. Three designated group sites provide privacy and ensure that groups do not disturb campers staying at the individual sites in Loop A. Go to the Group Camping page for more information. Reservations are required for group camping and can be made at Recreation.gov.
RV Sanitary Station
There is a dump station, potable water, and trash receptacles located 1/2 mile inside the park on the main entrance road (NV Hwy 488). The dump station is usually open late May to October (weather permitting) and is closed in winter. No discounts for Golden Age or Golden Access cardholders. Fee: $5.
There are no shower facilities in the park. Pay showers are available outside the park at the Whispering Elms Motel, Campground & RV Park ($5), the Baker Sinclair Gas Station ($2), and The Border Inn ($3).
Firewood is not available for purchase in the park, but wood may be collected provided that it's already dead and down on the ground. Ferg's Firewood provides bundled wood at two 24-hour self-pay stations located in Baker. Firewood can also be purchased from the Whispering Elms.
Campground regulations are posted on the campground bulletin boards. Visitors are responsible for knowing and following all regulations.
