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.
Below you will find an interactive map showing the location of Lehman Caves Visitor Center in Great Basin. Following this are the official park maps provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file or a simple JPEG image file (some of these files can be quite large). The map links will open in a new tab.
