Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs is a 2,040-acre park centered around Tule Springs and is has been operated by the City of Las Vegas for more than three decades. Floyd Lamb Park is located in the Northwest part of the Las Vegas Valley and is a series of small lakes that forms an oasis with wildlife, lush vegetation, and views of the Sheep and Spring Mountain Ranges.
The expansive park features 4 stocked ponds with rainbow trout, picnic areas, barbeque pits, scenic paths, volleyball, and horseshoes, and is also home to an assortment of peacocks, ducks, and geese.
Back in 1954 a group of businessmen who formed the Tule Springs Investment Company bought Tule Springs. They leased out the ranch until the city of Las Vegas bought it in 1964, which is when the springs was first designated as a park.
It was renamed Floyd Lamb State Park in 1977 when the state assumed control. The park was named after Nevada state senator Floyd Lamb, who was later convicted of taking a $23,000 bribe from an undercover FBI agent in 1983.
The city took control of the park for a second time when the legislature and state in 2005 agreed to release control and ownership of Floyd Lamb State Park to the City of Las Vegas. The park was transferred to the city, on July 2, 2007 and renamed to Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs. In addition to the park, the city received control of 1,300 acres of Bureau of Land Management land.
Those with valid Nevada fishing licenses are welcome to cast in the ponds, but the park does limit catches to three fish per person. Floyd Lamb Park Pond is frequently referred to as Tule Springs or Tule Springs Pond. The entire shoreline of the upper most part of this pond is accessible for fishing.
The park has four public fishing ponds, one of which is stocked throughout the year. This pond, known as Tule Springs Lake, is stocked by the Nevada Department of Wildlife, but all four of the ponds located in the park (Tule Springs Lake, Cottonwood Lake, Mulberry Lake and Desert Willow Lake) have fish.
Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs is also home to the historic Tule Springs Ranch, which offers visitors a unique look at early ranch life in the region. Fossilized remains of animals including the extinct mammoth, horses, giant sloths, camels and bison (all of which have been found in the park).
$6 per vehicle or $1 per person, whichever is greater. There are annual passes that can be purchased for $45 and are good from the day of purchase until the end of December.
