Great Basin National Park

Lying in the shadow of the 13,062-foot Wheeler Peak, Great Basin National Park is home to ancient bristlecone pine trees, abundant wildlife, lakes and streams, and limestone caverns, including the stunning Lehman Caves. The park is located in east-central Nevada near the Utah border and preserves a small representative portion of the Great Basin, the region between the Sierra Nevada and the Wasatch Mountains. Given Great Basin Park’s remote location, it’s one of the darkest places in the United States and ranger-led astronomy programs are conducted year round.
