Adventure in the Nevada desert and explore the mesmerizing Lehman caves.

Great Basin National Park is located in eastern Nevada near the Utah border. This region is comprised of the Great Basin Desert and contains most of the South Snake mountains. To the north, the mountain-hugging Wheeler Peak Scenic Drive leads to Wheeler Peak with its 13,063-foot summit. The marble Lehman Caves have distinctive stalactites and other formations. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife such as bighorn sheep, mountain lions, red-tailed hawks, badgers, Canadian geese, ring-tailed cats, marmots, great horned owls, mule deer, bats, and pygmy rabbits while you explore the park.

From Wheeler Peak to the sage-covered foothills, Great Basin National Park is a place to sample the stunning diversity of the larger Great Basin region. Come and experience the solitude of the wilderness, walk among ancient bristlecone pines, bask in the darkest of night skies among the ancient trees, and explore mysterious subterranean passages in the caves. There's more than meets the eye at this underrated national park. Feel free to visit Great Basin National Park any time of the year, each season brings its own natural beauty to the region.
