Floyd Lamb Park is a green oasis in the otherwise barren desert of Las Vegas. Named after the former Nevada state senator, Floyd Lamb, it is a popular getaway for locals and visitors alike. The park is open year round and is a great place to get away from the noise and lights of the Strip. Cheaper than other parks, such as Glen Canyon, it is one of the most popular parks outside Las Vegas.
The park is home to Tule Springs Ranch, where visitors will find one of best preserved archeological sites in the US. This is one of the only parks in Nevada where fossils of some of the world’s greatest mammals – past and present – can be seen. Expect bison, mammoths, camels and more. The park can get crowded during the summer months, when families visit.
The park has plenty of amenities for visitors to enjoy. There are picnic tables and BBQ grilles, walking and cycling trails, a volleyball court, horseshoe courts and fishing ponds.
The park is home to four lakes where visitors can enjoy fishing. A Nevada fishing license is required and visitors are limited to three fish per person. The catch here is rainbow trout. The largest and most popular of the four lakes is Tule Spring Lakes.
