Great Basin National Park Feature
Top Reasons to Go to Great Basin National Park
Ancient tree spottings: The bristlecone pines in Great Basin are thousands of years old.
Being away from it all: Among the least visited of America's national parks, Great Basin doesn't know the meaning of the word "crowds."
Wallet stays in the pocket: There is no fee required to enter the park.
Gather your pine nuts while you may: Come in the fall and go a little nutty, as you can gather up to three gunnysacks of pinyon pine nuts, found in abundance throughout the park and tasting oh so yummy—they're great on salads.
