Getting to Great Basin National Park
Driving to Great Basin
With the exception of the tiny town of Baker, Great Basin is far from civilization. US-50, nicknamed “America’s Loneliest Road” for good reason, runs east and west through Nevada. NV-487 leads south five miles from US-50 to the town of Baker and the park entrance.
