    The campground is a big circle and if you proceed up the hill there’s a loop at the end around the equestrian corrals.

  13. Cell Strength & Carriers Off Rt 50
    This is a cellular dead zone!

    We we able to climb the hill and pick up a T-Mobile signal from the UT side to check our email.

    We also found the parking lot for Lehman Caves visitors center inside Great Basin NP to have a strong T-Mobile signal.

    Strong enough to upload a video to our channel!

    In our haste, we did not check for other carriers. We were just happy to finally find a signal.

  25. Interpretation And Review Of Boondocking At Sacramento Pass BLM Campground, NV
    Sacramento Pass BLM
    This particular boondocking campground run by BLM suited our needs, but it’s not a place we would go just to enjoy the land.

    It had pit toilets, but they were not appealing to use.

    One particular perk was a large dumpster for trash.

    If you enjoy the fulltime RV living lifestyle, a safe place to dispose of trash is always on the radar.

    All of that said, the dumpsters were overfilled. We ended up cleaning a lot of trash that had blown around the area (twice).

    If you’re plan is to visit Great Basin National Park and you need a place to park for a few days, Sacramento Pass BLM Campground is a good option.
