Great Basin National Park is nestled in eastern Nevada and is one of the least-visited national parks. Just a handful of miles from the Utah border. Baker is the tiny hamlet of Baker, offering limited services and accommodations. Baker serves as the entrance to Great Basin National Park and where you’ll find the main visitor center. I always recommend stopping into visitor centers to get current maps, event schedules, special notices about road closures and park conditions, as well as to chat with park rangers about how best to spend your time there. They are a fabulous resource.
