The Nevada Division of State Parks was founded when, during the 1963 session of the Nevada Legislature, a bill was passed to form a new state park agency within the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR). From that time forward the park administrator has been appointed by, and reports to, the DCNR Director. Today the Division manages and maintains 24 parks – several that have multiple units – within the Nevada State Parks system. The Division is headquartered in Carson City and there are currently two management regions statewide: the Northern Region (Fallon Office) and the Southern Region (Las Vegas Office).
