The park currently features two trails that are built to ADA standards and are accessible with a standard wheelchair. For information on all trails, go to our hiking page.
Service animals are allowed on all park trails provided they fall under the definitions provided by NPS Policy and the Americans with Disabilites Act (ADA). More information on service animals is available at our Service Animals page at this link.
Most campgrounds in the park do have wheelchair accessible sites available. Find specific information on site numbers below under "Facilities." It is possible campers may take an accessible campsite without a specific need. For first-come, first-served campsites, the sites may only be taken by those who have disabilities. We are required by law to keep a certain number of sites open to those who have disabilities and therefore only those with disabilities may take them.
Other Accessible Overlooks
A handful of overlooks which require a very short distance are located throughout the park.
Lehman Caves Visitor Center & Great Basin Cafe
Great Basin Visitor Center
Campgrounds & Picnic Areas
Rangers at Great Basin present a variety of ranger led programs throughout the year, mostly in the summer months. Cave tours are a major draw, and shorter tours are recommended for those able to walk but not capable of being on their feet for long periods. Wheelchairs may technically access Lehman Caves, but the entrances do not meet ADA standards due to their historic nature. See the "Facilities" section above for more information.
