Coordinates For Sacramento Pass BLM Campground
We used this BLM campground as a base camp for exploring Great Basin National Park.
The location is perfect!
There’s a lot of turnover and a lot of spots to choose from if you continue up the hill.

Bureau of Land Management
We only stayed three nights and did not notice any law enforcement or rangers.
All roads are passable by any type of vehicle without issues.
We did take our 4×4 F250 on some of the Jeep trails at the top of the hill in an effort to pick up a cell signal.
I would not advise any non-4×4 of vehicle take the Jeep roads.
Yes, all locations are big rig friendly.
The campground is a big circle and if you proceed up the hill there’s a loop at the end around the equestrian corrals.
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.
There’s a view of the horizon to the east at the bottom of the hill.
If you park your rig at the top of the hill toward the horse corrals, you should be able to obtain a Starlink signal.
Every spot in the lower section of the campground was occupied, but the turnover was high.
If you proceed up the hill, there are more options to choose from toward the top (and a marginal cell signal).
Everyone we encountered, was super friendly.
We felt safe for the duration of our stay.
We had no issues with anyone bothering us or our rig/possessions.
There were no pesky insects to disrupt our short stay.
We did not encounter any wildlife in this spot.
There’s a fee based dump station in Great Basin National Park, which also has water.
If that’s out of the way and you’re heading east, there’s a fuel station/RV park on the NV/UT line that has a dump station.
It was $5 to use. There was no potable water unless you use one of the overnight RV spots.
Here are the coordinates:
Your safest bet for water is Great Basin NP.
The coordinates for Great Basin NP’s potable water are:
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.
