Valley of Fire State Park is located only six miles from Lake Mead and 55 miles northeast of
Las Vegas via Interstate 15 and on exit 75. Valley of Fire is Nevada's oldest and largest state
park, dedicated 1935. The valley derives its name from the red sandstone formations and the
stark beauty of the Mojave Desert. Ancient trees and early man are represented throughout the
park by areas of petrified wood and 3,000 year-old Indian petroglyph. 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. The park is open
all year. -Nevada Division of State Parks
