Spring Valley Nevada State Park with my Xolitzcuintli

We checked out Spring Valley State Park, but stayed in Pioche, the RV park there is actually cheaper, and it has full hook ups and wifi. No Wifi or cell service at all up here, but the RV spaces are nice, as well as the landscape. Nevada state parks are generally $17 for nonresidents, $15 for residents, and a little more if there are hook ups. Toto needs to burn off some energy, and he is making himself a difficult dog on this trip!

Lehman Cave Great Basin National Park

I went on the cave tour for $10. A prospector named Lehman settled in the area; he decided it was more profitable to start a ranch, and sell food to the other miners. There are still some fruit trees planted by Mr. Lehman at the visitor center, and you’re free to pick any fruit. Anyways, Lehman one day stumbled upon the entrance to this cave, and being a miner, he was definitely equipped to explore it. He charged $1 to go down with a candle, and if you didn’t re-emerge after 24 hours, he’d come and find you!

Great Basin Park Wheeler Peak Scouting RV Spaces

There are 3-4 campgrounds at Great Basin National Park, but I think only 3 spaces in the whole place are big enough for more than a van or truck camper. Most of the campsites are narrow, sheer drop offs on the sides, and some, they put posts around, to make it that much harder to back in. No wonder everyone is down at the RV Park in Baker! They are currently doing some remodeling and road work, but I don’t foresee the forest service making the campsites more RV friendly. The park is a nice place, lovely scenery, it would be nice if it were more workable for an RV longer than 20-22′.

Baker NV at Great Basin National Park Fulltime RV

Some locals tell me, this town used to be more booming before they created Great Basin National Park in 1986. When they created the park, they blocked off a lot of roads, so now you have to hike in like 20 miles to get to the cool spots. The hunting and fishing also died off. Not much left except scenery. Need to drive to Ely for any real groceries.

It’s not so bad but it does seem to go on forever and ever…. 37 miles to Austin seemed like 137 miles! Sorry for the window glare, I took off early in the morning, driving East.
