Grey Cliffs is an overflow campground. You can find it by turning left on a dirt road on your way to the Lehman Caves Visitor Center. There isn't a sign until you reach the actual campground. We saw all sizes of RVs here despite the dirt road and somewhat hilly location.
Great Basin NP is remote and has no reservable single campsites. You can reserve 3 group sites in this campground. Arrive early on fridays in the spring and summer or risk getting shut out. The park is huge but only has 100 or so sites. This site is the lowest elevation and most desert like.
The main visitor center closes at 5pm and there is very little information for those who don't come prepared. Read everything in the NPS website and bring all the water.
There are no entrance fees to the park and cellular service in the park is sporadic at best.
Site 8 on Loop A (there are 3 loops) is right next to one of the vault restrooms. There is no running water in this campground and the spaces are set far apart. This was the quietest campsites we have ever visited.
Our only real concern was the light desert dust that covered everything immediately. There is some shade coverage for the tent but the wood picnic table was pretty exposed. It was very hot during the day even in late September, nights were comfortable.
Perhaps it's the low attendance or remote location but I felt many of the park rangers could use more visitor orientation training. Everyone was professional and kind but very few had detailed information about campground usage. I was particularly surprised Rangers at the main visitor center couldn't answer basic questions about when campgrounds filled up on friday nights. This information is important because you can't exactly mosey on down the road if campgrounds in the park are filled and there is very sporadic cell phone service on the road there.
Over all I highly recommend this park. It's stunning and the nights are crystal clear.
