"Baker and the Great Basin area, especially Wheeler Peak, have been our favorites for years; this peaceful area with the inspiring peaks is always a source of wonderful uplift."  ~ Local motel guests.

     The Great Basin Business & Tourism Council would like to welcome you to the Great Basin National Park and surrounding area. We're glad you're coming to visit Nevada's largest national park and we look forward to helping you explore this vast area of high desert and timbered mountains.

     Our small town of Baker, Nevada, hosts the new Great Basin Visitor Center. The entrance to Great Basin National Park and Lehman Caves are located five miles west of Baker on Highway 488. Both the Great Basin Visitor Center and the Lehman Caves are open to the public year-round (except for Thanksgiving and Christmas Days.

   

     We hope our web site will nudge you off the beaten path and away from the crowds where you can enjoy high desert heat during the day, cool breezes scented with sage in the evening and a spectacular blanket of stars at night. As Biff Henderson of the David Letterman Show said about Baker - "It's quiet, peaceful, beautiful and the people are friendly."
