CCC Sandstone Cabin, Valley of Fire State Park
“The CCC built a number of tourist and campground facilities and trails at the new Valley of Fire State Park. They built stone visitor cabins, ramadas for shade, and roads into natural points of interest at the Valley of Fire. From parking areas, several trail systems leading to the blazing red-rock formations and petroglyph sites were also constructed.”
–The Civilian Conservation Corps in Nevada
The sandstone cabins pictured here were originally built as a shelter for passing travelers and are now part of a picnic area.
