Great Basin National Park has five developed campgrounds: Upper Lehman Creek, Lower Lehman Creek, Baker Creek, Grey Cliffs, and Wheeler Peak. Each developed campground has vault toilets, picnic tables, tent pads, and campfire grills. There are no hookups. Each campsite is limited to eight people, three tents, and two vehicles. There are three campgrounds with accessible sites. Primitive campgrounds 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 or 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 tent camping reservations can be made at the Grey Cliffs Campground from the end of May to the end of September. All camping reservations are now handled by Recreation.gov and require a two night minimum.
Non-reservable campsites may not be "saved" or reserved for family or friends arriving later.
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.
