This campsite is located within Great Basin National Park. Each site offers a different natural setting, with plenty of space for a couple of tents, a campfire, picnic tables, and easy access to restrooms and drinking water. It's nestled between babbling brooks, with serene sounds of nature and wildlife.
The Fortress Cliff Camp Area is a great location to camp because of its convenience to many of the best hiking trails in the park. It's a popular campground, and there's no tree coverage but most sites have a covered picnic table to hide from the sun.
Palo Duro Canyon is a fantastic place to hike, mountain bike, and ride horses. Horse rentals are available in the park, or you can bring your own. Some of the trails are challenging physically, but the views are a great reward. Also, depending on the time of day, the sun can be brutal and plenty of water as well as sunscreen and protective clothing are necessary.
The Lighthouse Trail is a wonderful hike to do at sunset, but be sure to bring a headlamp and a trail map.
