Valley of Fire State Park Cabins
Valley of Fire State Park Cabins Overview
The Valley of Fire was one of the earliest locations to have construction by the Civilian Conservation Corps by building three native sandstone cabins in 1934 for traveling tourists. Today, visitors can visit the preserved cabins to see a small cabin with a built-in fireplace and a window overlooking the valley.
Transcription of the sign:
These three cabins were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) soon after the Valley of Fire became a state park in 1935. They are constructed of native sandstone and were used for many years to shelter campers and travelers to the park. The Cabins are now being preserved as a reminder of the work accomplished by the CCC throughout Nevada under the able direction of Col. Thomas W. Miller, Nevada’s first State Park Commission Chairman. Approximately 9,000 persons visited the newly established Valley of Fire State Park in 1936. Today, several hundred thousand visitors enjoy the park each year.

There are petroglyphs located behind The Cabins, unfortunately, I was not able to explore due to the heat of the day.
I will be photographing the area the next time I return and will update this post.
