This park, situated on the old Arrowhead Trail, was designated on March 26, 1935 as Boulder Dam-Valley of Fire State Park.

Though four state parks were established by concurrent legislation, Valley of Fire is considered Nevada's first state park as it was dedicated prematurely on Easter Sunday, 1934.

Thomas W. Miller of Reno (Overton-Caliente) led the move to establish Nevada's State Park System. He was appointed in 1935 as the first Park Commission Chairman.

Recognized nationally for its outstanding scenic, geologic, and archaeological features, 8,760 acres were patented to the State in 1931 as a State exchange grant.

Civilian Conservation Corp companies initiated park development in 1933.
