Other amenities include restroom and shower facilities. Camping is limited to 14 days in a day period. When the park has reached capacity, walk-ins and drop-off are not allowed. Carpooling allows the park to accommodate more people during peak visitation. Boat Launch : A two-lane boat ramp offers access to the river through a man-made lagoon that shelters the ramp from the river's current. A paved parking lot is available for boat trailers. Hiking : About four miles of trails weave throughout the developed area of the park.
The canyons in the area of the park west of the Needles Highway offer plenty of undeveloped areas to hike and explore. Programs : Information about program scheduling may be obtained from either park staff or kiosks. Upon request, special presentations can be arranged for groups. The Colorado River is the main attraction in the park. Because the park is located just downstream of Davis Dam, the river is clear and cool year round. Although the park has approximately two miles of shoreline and riparian areas, the majority of the park is comprised of canyons and washes. The area is rich with beautiful formations and scenic viewpoints.
People have lived in southeastern Nevada for the past 13, years. The earliest inhabitants of the Colorado River Valley were the Mohave. Historical petroglyphs can be found throughout the valley and within the recreation area. The first working ranch in the Las Vegas Valley, and once a luxurious retreat for millionaire Howard Hughes, Spring Mountain Ranch attracts visitors who enjoy exploring historic buildings, hiking and large, lush lawns on which to picnic and play. More than years ago, a spring-fed creek flowed through the Las Vegas Valley, creating an oasis in the desert where Mormon missionaries built an adobe fort.
Today the park includes a remnant of the original fort that is used to display historic artifacts.
A geologic wonderland, world-renowned Valley of Fire has 2, year old petroglyphs carved into massive red sandstone formations in the Mohave Desert. As part of a partnership with the Colorado Department of Education, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and local library systems, Colorado State University and all Colorado public libraries are now providing two State Park passes for free entry to state parks. The passes can be checked out for up to one week at a time — enough time for a weekend camping trip or to visit several parks to explore bike friendly trails, hike, or as an incentive to get a fishing license.
Each pass also comes with a pack filled with items useful for an outdoor adventure. But beyond the economics, the larger goal of the program is to get Coloradans outside and learning more about their environment in a fun and healthy way. Near: Montrose, National Park, fishing, jeeping, restaurants. On-site management!
