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 them due to the heat of the day. I will be photographing the area the next time I return and will update this post.
There is plenty of parking and I have yet to be there when it was too crowded and no places to park available. In fact, most times I have been there alone which makes it one of my more favorite places to explore.
The picnic area was designed with the same look as The Cabins and offers visitors a shaded area to enjoy the scenic views.
There are pit toilets located across the area of the picnic area.
Tip – bring your own toilet tissue or wipes as sometimes they are out, especially during popular times to visit.
