Getting 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.
Below you will find an interactive map showing the location of the entrance to Great Basin. You can click on the map marker to get directions from wherever you are. Following this is the official park map provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file (sometimes very large files) or a simple image file. The map links will open in a new tab.
