Great Basin National Park – RV Living

Zion National Park Vacation Rentals, Hotels & More Lodging Options

We continue south in search of warmer weather and end up in one of the least visited National Parks in the country – Great Basin National Park. The entire drive through northeastern Nevada is pretty lonely and we find what might be the most desolate fuel station we’ve ever encountered. We mark a milestone at this fuel station and use the opportunity to discuss an app we’ve used since we hit the road: http://www.fuelly.com/. Once in the park, our first stop is to Lehman Caves. After exploring underground, we head to the highest point in Great Basin National Park, Wheeler Peak. History has shown that altitude + Bri + hiking ≠ success but we’re determined to hike to the Wheeler Peak Grove of Bristlecone Pines. This short, twisted, gnarly tree is special because it’s the oldest known living tree in the world! Between caving and getting to see one of the longest living life forms on Earth, we’d say Great Basin Nation Park is worth the detour!

    I just discovered your channel a few days ago and have bengewatched all of your video's. I love your channel and I greatly appreciate all of the information you give on all of the places you visit and also your tips on apps, etc. For instance, I haven't ever seen a video on Great Basin National Park. Just from the name I expected a dry desert, but instead you showed us that it is really a beautiful area. Thank you for sharing. Safe travels!

    Loved this video. I took my two boys to this park and caves 10 years or so ago. We were tent camping and it is a beautiful spot in Nevada. My plans are to take my wife in our trailer to visit together

    EASTERN NEVADA HAS MANY HIDDEN GEMS. NEVADA STATE PARKS PASS IS $200 AND YOU VISIT ALL THE STATE PARKS AND STAY FOR 2 WEEKS. SOME PARKS ALLOW ONLY ONE WEEK. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

    I live in southern Nevada, so I’m a frequent visitor to Great Basin NP. It is really a hidden gem. The hike up to the glaciers is really amazing, but at my age, the air is a little thin for me. Getting a camp site can be hard. All the campground are small, and have not been improved in many years. They don’t take reservations, so in the summer it’s really hard to get a site. Off season is your best bet. Your not far from Ely, and it makes a fun day to go ride the steam train there. The ward charcoal kilns are in the area also, and a fun place to visit.

    I spent about one thousand a month for rent and for those two years I would of spent 24 thousand on rent. Safe to say you are having a better time than I have the last two years.
