Monkey around with free camping in Great Basin NP

Monkey Rock Group Campground is the first campground along Great Basin National Park's Snake Creek Road. Campground is just over a mile past the back boundary on the south side of the road. Campground is clearly marked. Campground sits between the road and Snake Creek. Campground consist of a single group campsite. Plenty of room in the area for multiple sites. Parking for the campground is just past the vault toilet. If your group has multiple cars more could park at the pull off at the vault toilet. Camping area has two picnic tables around a metal fire ring. Trash bins are located at the vault toilet. This is a dry campground, the only water available is from the creek so come prepared.

Be warned, the information on the parks website is a bit misleading. Road is not for RV's or trailers. Just after you enter the park on Snake Creek Road a sign clearly indicated no RV's or trailers past the roads first pull out. Road is a narrow single lane road for almost all of its length and is a dirt road. Camp site is just off a very dusty road, but road travel is slow with little traffic. Hiking trail heads are located at the end of the road. Vault toilet was very clean. No fee to use this site.
