We saw this park on the map while planning a trip to Zion. It was out of the way but worth the trip. The scenery was beautiful, not many people. We took the tour of Lehman Caves and enjoyed the friendly Ranger who led us through. We picniced at the visitors center and enjoyed the whole place to ourselves. This... 更多
We visited the park with friends who live in Baker, so we had the deluxe tour. It's a beautiful park and not over-utilized as so many National Park Service areas are. I think a day here would suffice. Don't miss the two visitor centers, especially the one that is right in Baker.
For a one day the Visitor Center is the place to start.Review all the exhibits,be sure to watch the video on Great Basin,very helpful.Be sure to take the drive up to Wheeler Peak elevation 9900 ft. If time permits be sure. To take the cave tour.
We really enjoyed taking the longer cave tour. Be sure to book your cave tour online in advance of your visit. The park wasn't very busy but several of the longer cave tours were still sold out the day we were there and the next day too. While in the area, you should also check out Crystal Ball cave. It... 更多
Lehman Caves were very worthwhile, had a great guide... Was a little concerned about the level of difficulty, but not bad at all... If you' re claustrophobic, this is not the hike for you, but for an informative and remarkable tour - interesting story about the caves & their recent history as well - this is a very good visit.
Very nice but long drive up from Vegas. Seeing Mount Wheeler grow larger and larger as you drive up was the best part. We visited in April and only 3 miles of the road up to the top was open. Took a few pics and checked out the Visitor Center, would love to come back later in season to see... 更多
My older parents wanted to see the caves. After reading the website and calling the ranger, I made reservations to see the first big cave ( no further because of stairs). Mom had real trouble even with this first cave. There is a long, sloped path down to the cave. It was steep and dark (part of the charm for... 更多
It feels funny to review a national park--it's already a treasure, more likely it should rate us! Great Basin was mostly closed when we went, it was still snowy, but even so there were very pretty short drives and walks. It was well worth the visit.
There are many National Parks to choose from in the West, but you're missing out on a lot if you miss Great Basin. One of the least visited and most remote, it's worth the travel time to experience this gem. Baker Peak harbors one of the largest Bristlecone Tree forests you'll find. These trees are upwards of 2000 years old,... 更多
