2 Reviews of Grey Cliffs Campground
Rocky but roomy campground

This is a campground within Great Basin National Park. It is reservation only, which is why we picked it, but there are several other campgrounds within the park. I believe the others are first come, first served. We found that the sites were pretty private and not on top of each other at all. The cliffs here are very pretty and are a nice backdrop. Grey Cliffs is a tent only area and each site has a fire ring with a grill and a picnic table. There is no running water, vault toilets and trash cans put here and there. We have a tent that needs to be staked-this was a problem there. The ground is so rocky it became very difficult to drive a spike into the ground far enough to work and not bend them. Do not bring a large tent, the pads are small. It wasn’t terrible once we were set up, and the price is right. If we were to come back to the park we’d try to either camp at Baker or Wheeler Peak, up the road a ways.

Great camping

Some sites are bigger than others, ours was big enough for 2 4-man tents. There is no water access, but the bathrooms are very well maintained & cleaned daily. Would recommend staying there during the cooler months, we went in July & it was pretty warm, but hiked in the higher elevation areas (wheeler peak) & the weather was great. If you stay near Great Basin National Park make sure to check out the Lehman Caves. Also, the people at the Lehman caves gift shop & cafe are super nice & awesome people. Currently, fires are not allowed.
