Really nice campground and site 16 was a great find. Camped right next to the creek behind the main area with picnic table and fire ring.
This beautiful campground is located at the top of a three-mile corduroy gravel road along the babbling Baker Creek, and many of the sites (including ours - #2) are located within toe-dipping distance of its chilly clear waters. Some sites appear to be much smaller. There are also a couple of pull-through sites for trailers, and a few walk-in sites. You can’t make reservations, but there were several sites available when we arrived at about 3 pm. It did appear to mostly fill up by dinner time. There are drinking water standpipes scattered around, fairly clean vault toilets, and garbage cans that indicate that animal food invasions are rare. Every site has a NPS-issue concrete picnic table and fire ring. Somebody had obviously put time into caring for this sweet campground. Rocks have been placed in decorative rings around trees and bushes. Nice touch. Cost is $15 per night, and half if you have a senior pass. You pay in an envelope by credit card or cash. They don’t accept checks. Don’t miss the beautiful hike at the top of Mt. Wheeler Scenic Drive (see photos).
We loved this park, Great Basin National Park and all the hikes were amazing. The campground was beautiful but our particular campsite #5 was not the best. The place to set up our tent was very small and sloping down. It was so windy that our tent would have blown away had we not tied it to the tree. No showers, no flush toilets, but clean. Picnic table and fire ring were good.
We ended up going to this campsite since the wildfire directed us away from strawberry creek and it was incredible. We had a stream running next to us, a picnic table and plenty of room to back a truck in. There were trees to hang hammocks with views through the valley. There are trails running off from the campground so no driving is necessary
You have a lot to pick from, no reservations required. Tent, camper, or walk in, all are welcomed. Water is available during the summer, restrooms are ok, trash can through out. Plenty of privacy in your space, all for 15 per night and no national park entrance.
Plenty of hiking spots and a cave to explore. Cafe and gift shop not far away.
Great national park to visit, not very busy but very beautiful.
Very nice campground with ample wild life to keep you entertained, turkeys roaming through camp, roosting in trees, and yellow bellied marmots eating the road for it's salt content.
Don't forget to go to Lehman Caves!
Bakers Creek campsite is great. The sights are good sized, and they're spaced pretty well. Definitely won't run into you're neighbors. It's a little bit of a drive to the Lehman caves visitor center, but it's better than some. It's first come first serve, but Bakers Creek doesn't fill up often.
The campground was clean, quiet, and sites were spread out enough to allow for some privacy. We stayed 3 nights and would certainly stay again!
I recently went to Great Basin National Park and stayed at the Baker Creek Campground. The campground was very clean & very well kept up. It had multiple spaces to place tents, a picnic table, a firepit and their was also a bathroom on the campground. The bathroom was extremely clean for being outside and basically being set up like a port-a-potty. It also even had seat covers and toilet paper. The campground also has "quiet hours" at night so it's very peaceful out there. There is also a small river inside of the campground and you can hear the water running from your space. It's amazing! I would recommend this campground to everyone!
This is one of the least visited National Parks in the United States. It is slightly hard to get to. It was actually closer to drive to Cedar Breaks National Monument from southern california and stay there for a night, than go straight to great basin….weird right. Anyway, there is a glacier here and caverns!
