Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument

National Park Service, Nevada.

Mammoths, lions and camels once roamed along wetlands just north of what is now known as Las Vegas, Nevada. Their history is preserved at Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument and is ready to be discovered.


Because Tule Springs is a new park, there is no visitor center, facilities or parking areas. Right now to access the park, people can park on nearby public roads in the cities of Las Vegas and North Las Vegas, and they can enter the monument on foot. Federal regulations prohibit off-roading in the park. Vehicles are only permitted on approved roads and only when the vehicles are properly licensed for street use.
