Great Basin Information

This 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.
