Lower Lehman Creek is the only developed campground in Great Basin National Park that is open all year. Situated at 7,300 feet, it is 450 feet lower than Upper Lehman Creek Campground and the lowest elevation campground in the park. With only 11 sites, this campground provides a quiet, relaxing camping experience. Sites are scattered among stands of aspen and clusters of sagebrush. Several sites are located right on the creek, providing a great place to soak your feet after a day of hiking.

Potable water is available only during the warmer summer months. Camping fees are reduced by half when water is not provided. Check the message board at the front of the campground or stop by the visitor center to get the most up-to-date information.

From here it's a quick drive to Lehman Caves, where you can take a guided tour of spectacular limestone caves. It's also the gateway to the Wheeler Peak Scenic Drive. In the summer you can drive all the way up to 10,000 feet and hike to the summit of Wheeler Peak or visit a bristlecone pine grove.
