of Fire is Nevada's oldest and largest state park, dedicated in 1935.
The valley derives its name from the red sandstone formations and the
stark beauty of the Mojave Desert. Brilliant formations of eroded sandstone
and sand dunes more than 150 million years old beckon exploration. 3,000
year-old Indian Petroglyphs decorate rock walls. Valley
of Fire State Park is located only six miles from Lake Mead and 55 miles
northeast of Las Vegas.
