No the boudaries are not clearly marked and yes you run the risk of crossing over without even knowing it. There is no "fence" that runs the entire perimeter. Good luck and be safe

The orange posts are all you have to indicate the border. Still, on a quad, you would probably be safe if you don't drive it like you stole it. The problem with the orange post markers is when you reach a corner. If you don't notice the border did a 90 degree bend, you have crossed it. The trick is to eyeball three orange posts at a time. This way you can spot the corners. Note some border points have metal balls. These are still markers. The balls are radar reflectors, but the base uses them so the chopper can see the border.
By Tonopah, I assume you mean the Tonopah Test Range, not just the town. I have waypoints to reach the TTR if you haven't been there before. I photographed the Mi-24 hind and CV-22 flying out there.
I assume you have been to the north gate (back gate) where they have the Soviet era radar. If not, I'll dig up the waypoints, though all you really need to do is take the road just south of Rachel and drive west. Eventually you end up at the guard shack. It has a camera on a tower to follow you around.

What I am concerned about - are the boundaries of the base clearly marked? Is it possible to inadvertantly cross into the base by accident?

I think they will let you know if you get too close for comfort. They are pretty good about that I hear. If this is your attempt at trying to find someone on here who knows a less gaurded entrance to get closer without being detected, then I'd say too late.
