Floyd Lamb State Park Insider Tips
- State law requires that you have a Las Vegas fishing license in order to fish in the lakes and ponds at Floyd Lamb; Visitors and tourists are not allowed to fish unless they have this license
- Wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes. With free-roam birds comes a lot of mess, so some paths around the park where birds like to congregate may be dirtier than others. Dress well to protect your feet.
