Ice Age Fossils State Park Ticket Offers

The Ice Age Fossils State Park is an excellent place to spend a day outside with the whole family. This 315 acre park is filled with fossil remains from various extinct species during the Ice Age, which was about 25,000 years ago. At the time, Las Vegas was wet and green. You could often find large mammals, like Columbian mammoths, camels, and ancient bison roaming. Visitors can explore these fossils on three different outdoor trails, as well as in a large interactive visitors center where you can see some of the complete fossils up close.

A highlight of the park is the Wooly Mammoth sculpture at the entrance, which was created by 17-year-old Tahoe Mack with the help of other local artists and designers. This breathtaking sculpture is the perfect way to welcome you into the educational and exciting experience offered by the state park.

Only 30 minutes from the Las Vegas strip, the park is the perfect getaway from the city’s hustle and bustle. Visiting times and days vary, so check the website before you go. Visitors can also enjoy a variety of educational and cultural programs, including guided tours. Information about tours and times can be found at the park in the kiosks or by asking a staff member.
