I have visited many parks in the US, but somehow always skipped this one. There doesn't seem to be so much advertising. Well, this was a mistake, because it is definitely one of the highlight parks of the American West. It is incredibly scenic and there are some very nice walking trails, including a walk to the Fire Wave. Downside... More

We were traveling through while on vacation and decided to make Valley of Fire a stop along the way after doing a Google search and seeing the images from the area. We didn't have a lot of time but did manage to do a couple of hikes - one to the Fire Wall. We went there early in the day... More

I've been here twice and feel like i've barely scratched the surface. Tons of hikes and different areas to really explore here. It's extremely picturesque and if you're anywhere near Vegas it's certainly worth going a little bit out of your way for.

The rocks there are interesting. Buy food and water before arriving at Indian store. People throw their trash on the rocks.

Coming from Colorado, I know a thing or two about amazing outdoor spaces and this place is one of them. I wasn't expecting much but was blown away by the rock formations and views of the valleys. We didn't have a lot of time to hike so next time we are back in Vegas, we will head up here and... More

Make sure you give yourself enough time to drive through, and there are tons of side roads with attractions to get out and see. This had everything we were looking for in the desert. Old structures, wild life, plants, arches, etc. there are so many things to stop and see while you are up here. The visitors center is a... More

Thanks to a TA suggestion when I posted a question in the forum on where to go for a day trip outside of Vegas; we went and are so happy that we did!! We try to get out of the busy Vegas Strip at least once when we visit and this was our first time to Valley of Fire. It... More

If you enjoy semi-arid scenery, this would be a great trip. Especially in the spring when the cactus are in bloom. The visitor's center is well done. They even have an ink stamp to go in a National Parks Passport book. Nevada does have their own passport book yet.

Amaaazing views!! This one hour drive from Vegas is a MUST DO! No mountain or off road driving is required so it is easy access for anyone. Valley of Fire State Park has multiple trails throughout the park and most are relatively short (+/- 1 mile or so). There are a few longer trails. You will be given a map... More

Did a nice tour from Vegas, via Henderson (where we shot some guns at Green Valley Range, see separate review), then via Lake Mead recreation area into Valley of Fire State Park and back to Vegas. Great tour....very photogenic!
