Created in 1986, Great Basin National Park is the only national park completely within Nevada’s borders and features the diversity and beauty of the Great Basin Desert landscape. Key highlights are the 13,063- foot Wheeler Peak, ancient bristlecone pines (some dating back thousands of years) and Lehman Caves, an acclaimed marble cave system. The park is in northeastern Nevada, near the community of Baker and the city of Ely.
