Devil’s Hole is a water-filled geologic formation in Nye County. In 1952, this isolated cave with its geothermal pool was made into a detached part of Death Valley National Monument to protect its indigenous pupfish, an ancient fish only found here. In 1962, after the death of two divers, the entire area was fenced off.
