    Favorite thing: Great Basin National Park is located in a geological area called the Great Basin which is centered on Nevada and includes a fair part of Utah and portions of California, Oregon and Idaho. It is one of the less visited national parks in the contiguous 48 states. This is a shame because it is a beautiful area with pristine mountains, lakes and rivers; along with an interesting cave. It is not crowded and off the beaten path. I really enjoyed it and look forward to visiting it again. Entrance to the park is free but you pay for cave tours, camping, and use of the RV Sanitary Station. The cave tour is $8 for the 60 minute tour and $10 for the 90 minute tour for 16 and older. Discounts for pass holders and kids 5 to 15.

    Fondest memory: Mather Point was very nice but I would have to say the tour of Lehman Caves was the highlight of my visit.

    RV Camping in Nevada

    Favorite thing: Well, this isn't really about the park, but just about 30 minutes west of here, you can park your RV with full hookups at the Holiday Inn in Ely, NV. They have a little slot machine pit that they'd like you to play in, but if you can avoid the temptation, it's a free ride!
    Also, they have a free internet hub in the lobby. Ask at the desk. You can use the laundry facilities, too. Have fun!
