Nevada state parks in the Las Vegas area closed yesterday in order prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The affected parks are: Valley of Fire State Park, the Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort, Spring Mountain Ranch State Park and Big Bend of the Colorado State Recreation Area. Each park will be fully closed to the public for all activities, including camping, day-use, and boating (Big Bend of the Colorado).  

All other State Parks remain open for day-use only (entrance fees still apply), with the exception of Rye Patch State Recreation Area.  

The parks division has implemented multiple safety measures in response to the COVID-19 health crisis: Closure of all State Park museums, visitor centers, gift shops, offices, campgrounds, and some boat launches.

All annual permits that were set to expire during the state of emergency will be extended for 90 days.
