Valley of Fire State Park

NevadaValley of Fire State Park is the state’s oldest and largest state park, dedicated 1935. Civilian Conservation Corps workers helped to make the new park accessible to visitors through the construction of roads and rest areas. The valley derives its name from the red sandstone formations and the stark beauty of the Mojave Desert.

The valley derives its name from the red sandstone formations, a stark contrast to the beige desert. Among the notable wonders are the 3,000 year-old Indian petroglyphs. Even more ancient are areas of petrified wood.

Popular activities include camping, hiking, picnicking and photography. The park offers a full-scale visitor center with extensive interpretive displays. Several group use areas are also available.
