Best campsite we've ever stayed at! I almost want to give Baker Creek CG a bad review so that I can keep this secret to myself, but I just can't say anything bad about this place, other than if you don't like turkeys, then this isn't the campground for you. I've never had so much privacy in a campground before. We were there in May, ... more

Nice location for visiting Great Basin! Close to dumpsite, Lehman caves visitor center and some nice hikes a half a mile up the road that also has better access to Baker Creek. Rigs longer than 30 ft might have a problem getting around the campground and be prepared to get a few scratches from low tree branches. Water spigots, trash ca... more

“Excellent campground in Great Basin National Park. Lovely, spacious sites but getting level was a trick. ”

The gravel road into Baker Creek Campground is graded and doable for any size rig. However, don’t bother with the car wash before visiting, your vehicles are guaranteed to be coated in a thick layer of fine white dust. We could barely discern the color of our toad. Lol. The campground roads and all sites are gravel, pay attention to t... more

With Wheeler Peak Campground being closed still (early season), we aimed for Baker Creek CG as our first choice. Checking out all the PDF maps of the campgrounds in Great Basin National Park, we figured Baker Creek had the most trailer friendly options for our 17' trailer.

“Scenic campground with fun camping atmosphere. ”

Overall Rating

We just stayed for one night while passing through, but still managed a visit to the fun Lehman Caves as well as a morning hike at 10,000 feet under Wheeler Peak. The Lower Lehman Campground would have been a easier in and out for us, with level paved sites. It also has a much easier approach, but we only found that out afterwards. ... more

I had no idea that I would like Great Basin NP so much, and this campground proved to be part of that wonderful experience for me. I don't usually pay for camping much at all, and I even had the option of some free camping that is available in the park down some significantly more rough roads than this is down. I was a bit nervous for ... more

“Very quiet national park campground just a few miles from Lehman Caves visitor center”

Reviewed Jun 10, 2015

Overall Rating

Although many sites are extremely unlevel, we finally managed to get into site 34, a long private pull-through. There was hardly anyone else there and rarely any cars going by. Some of the other sites had dense tree cover but this was more open and we got plenty of sun for the solar panels. Site 37 would also be good for a bigger rig. ... more

Is there a busy season at G.B.? I'm not sure but when we were there it was the most empty N.P. I have ever visited. Lower Lehman campground was full so we swung up to Baker Creek to find it completely empty. I was in love instantly with the silence and trees after spending a month in busy, dusty, ATV filled Moab.

We drove all the campgrounds, and even though Baker Creek is technically and "overflow" campground, we liked it the best. The National Park itself is in the middle of nowhere, so come stocked up with groceries and gas. We hiked from the campground up to the trail head and beyond, and we also drove to the top and hiked to the glacie... more
