Valley of Fire is Nevada's oldest and largest state park, dedicated 1935. The park is located six miles from Lake Mead and 55 miles northeast of Las vegas via Interstate 15, at exit 75. The park 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 - 4,000 year-old Indian petroglyphs. 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.
