Baker Creek Campground in Great Basin National Park is located down a 3 mile gravel/dirt road. Although the road was a little washboarded, it could be easily driven on by any vehicle. The roads throughout the campground were dirt and very narrow with a lot of vegetation on each side. We came head to head with another truck and trailer and thankfully he was able to back into a vacant campsite so we could pass each other. The better campsites for RVs was to the left when you enter the campground. There are a mixed amount of pull-through sites and back in sites. The sites are all very unlevel. My husband choose site number 37 because it seemed the most level of the available sites. I called this site the "dead tree" site because all of the trees in it were very dead. Looks like there might have been a fire. Thankfully there were a lot of bushes so the site wasn't too bad. The site was large and had a nice picnic table and barbecue ring. We also had a great view of the valley below. The other sites were just as nice if not nicer than ours. There were a lot of trees providing privacy between the sites and they were fairly well spread out. We had deer come through our site every morning. The vault toilets were very clean and stayed clean the 3 days we were there. But, the campsite wasn't even half-full and I don't think the other RVers were using it. There were quite a few restrooms through-out the campground which was nice. The sites have no hook-ups, but there are water spigots available. My husband was able to use his cell phone on roaming which I was surprised at because you are so far away from everything. The price was $15.00 per night or $7.50 with an Access Pass (which we have). It was very quiet our whole stay and the area is very pretty. I would definitely stay here again. We have a small trailer and it was easy for us to navigate the narrow road. If one had a large 5th wheel or motor home it might be a different experience. We camped at Baker Creek Campground - NPS in a Travel Trailer.

The cave tour was wonderful. There are also a lot of great (but long/hard) hikes in the area.

Great Basin National Park is an undiscovered Gem. It is one of the least visited National Parks in the country, and yet it has so much to offer. Bristle Cone Pines thousands of years old, the Lehman Caves, some of the best dark sky viewing in the country, lovely creeks, chaparral and pine woodlands, a 13,000-foot peak, and more. There are 5 campgrounds in Great Basin National Park, Upper Lehman, Lower Lehman, Baker Creek, Gray Cliffs, and Wheeler Peak. Only Gray Cliffs accepts reservations, and that only for groups of 6 or more; all the rest are first come first serve. In the four nights we were there, we rarely saw all the campsites occupied. They are all very nice, all dry camping, no hookups and vault toilets (dump station available). There is pavement to and within Upper and Lower Lehman and Wheeler Peak campgrounds. There are dirt roads to (2 to 3 miles) and within Baker Creek and Gray Cliffs. All except Wheeler Peak are at 7,000-ish feet elevation, Wheeler peak is at 10,000 feet, and due to heavy snow did not open until after we left in early July. While we saw some huge rigs in Baker Creek, where we stayed, I think it would be very tricky maneuvering in and out with a very big rig. We made a reservation at Whispering Pines RV park just outside the park which had full hookups, because we had to drive 6 hours to get there and wanted to be sure we had someplace to stay when we got there. But as soon as we found a spot in Baker Creek campground we immediately moved there (just beautiful). After looking at all the campgrounds, I think my first choice would be Upper Lehman, then Baker creek (in spite of the dusty road). I wouldn't try taking a large rig up the twisty, narrow, nerve wracking road to Wheeler Peak. If you are there on a new moon, they have a very interesting astronomy presentation at the Lehman Caves Center. Showers are available in the town of Baker just outside the park. Try to arrive early and check all the lower campgrounds... Visitation is so low, you have a good shot at getting a site. We camped at Baker Creek Campground - NPS in a Travel Trailer.

Quiet, beautiful park in Great Basin National Park. We did manage to get our 43.5' toy hauler into this campground (as well as drove through Lower Lehman successfully). For the most part, we could drive through the campground with our big rig, but a couple turns were difficult with the trees and rocks. We took it slow, and it was doable. There are plenty of sites that were long enough for our rig, but the problem was the angle of the sites--getting the rig into the site without hitting trees or rocks. Many sites are not level, but some are. No hookups, but plenty of water spigots throughout, as well as pit toilets. We love this park and would definitely return again. We camped at Baker Creek Campground - NPS in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a National Park that was well worth the drive off Hwy 50. Beautiful natural alpine setting with lots of space between sites, each with fire ring/cooking grate, clean picnic table and lots of dead wood around to burn (this is allowed). The sites do require some levelers and patience and you may want to have a passenger move a few branches so that your RV isn't scratched when driving through the campground...BUT the setting and trails are extraordinary. The May wildflowers where in full bloom and the weather and temperature were pretty perfect. There were several wild turkeys walking around during daylight hours and a fairly high flow picturesque stream that ran through the entire area. The Visitor Center was very helpful in directing us to the areas that most likely to have sites open. We will definitely be back...hopefully we can make it to the top at Wheeler campground at 13,000 ft. next time when it isn't still in snow. We camped at Baker Creek Campground - NPS in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

This campground is in a beautiful but rough area. Sites and facilities have recently been reworked but few are level and most are pretty rough. Roads could use some additional work as well. About three miles of not too bad gravel road to get to the campground. Baker creek runs through the campground but few sites actually border the creek. It was cold, windy, and rainy while we were there, it would no doubt look better in sunny weather. Dump station available near entrance to the park. There is gas and a store with limited stock in Baker and a larger gas station and store near the state line on Hwy 50. We camped at Baker Creek Campground - NPS in a Motorhome.
