Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is located about 15 miles (24 kilometers) west of Las Vegas and is easily seen from the Las Vegas Strip.

History: In 1990 Congress designated Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area as Nevada’s first National Conservation Area (the seventh to be designated nationally). Today the nearly 200,000 acre Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada is an area managed by the Bureau of Land Management as part of its National Landscape Conservation System, and protected as a National Conservation Area.

Fee Increase: On February 20, 2018, amenity fees for the 13-mile scenic drive and the campground at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area will increase to support a growing number of visitors to the area, and to improve service to the public. A large section of the National Conservation Area will still be accessible for hiking, and other recreational activities, free of charge.  The fee increase will put prices at $15 for cars, $10 for motorcycles, $5 for bicycles and pedestrians, $20 for individual campsites, $10 for walk-in campsites and $60 for group campsites. The fee for a Red Rock Canyon Annual Support Pass will not increase and remain at $30 per year. The standard amenity fee charged at the 13-Mile Scenic Drive has not increased since 2011. Since that time, BLM has added numerous amenities, activities and services to improve visitor experiences. (Press release)
