My husband and I spend a whole day hiking in here. It is beautiful, Great hiking, The visitor center has very friendly staff, is able to answer all your questions. It costs 10:00 to park, but is well worth the money. Many places you can drive too, and hike. Lots to see. Plan on spending all the whole day.

This is a great place to visit for a half day. Bring a picnic and your hiking shoes. There are several places to stop along the side of the road to eat, some with actual picnic tables others just a nice piece of red rock to sit and take it all in. The beehives and mouse tank are our favorite... More

We choose this area because my husband wanted to go see the Fire Wave because of pictures he saw online. It was well worth the trip! It's only an hour from Vegas and well worth the trip. We did several hikes while we where there and the Fire Wave was our favorite. There is lots of different things to see... More

Truly unique rock formations and breathtaking colors. We visited in February. Delightfully cool. Saw a few brides having their pictures taken. Very understandable.

Coming from Vegas, we have been thru Valley of Fire plenty of times but this was our first overnight stay. It was amazing! There are two campgrounds, and both are first come first serve. We got there on a Sat morning and the spots with hookups were full but we had no problem getting a regular spot in Atlatl Campground.... More

If it not too hot out, this makes a great 1/2 day trip. Just under an hour away from the strip, the Valley of Fire will have you saying Wow! around every curve of the road. There are long and short hikes and places where you can just explore a few feet from the car. If that's not your thing,... More

Located an hour northeast of Las Vegas, we greatly enjoyed our day of hiking. I would definitely recommend this for anyone.

I went here on a day trip while visiting Las Vegas for a week. We rented a car (3 of us -(females in our 30's) went for the day. Easy drive & felt safe. Beautiful views, & we all enjoyed it. I'd do the Grand Canyon first (this will feel small compared) but we had all been there. But this... More

About an hour's drive from the Las Vegas strip and after paying the $10 per car State Park entry fee you are in for a astonishing view of nature. We took the scenic loop on your left just inside the guard gate and then hiked backed in among the truly red rocks and were blown away by the beauty. Easy... More

Lots of trails or if you just want to get out of Las Vegas. Beautiful drive through the park. There are also grills if you want to have a picnic or campgrounds.
