Valley of Fire is an excellent place to visit. It's worth the time to drive about an hour north of Las Vegas. It's an easy drive through the park to see the attractions, yet I urge you to get out of the car and walk/hike around/through the rock formations. Gorgeous shapes and colors - red, orange, white, gold, and even... More

Bought the National Geographic book on US State Parks and found this gem. It's on the way from Las Vegas to St George and if you don't take this 2 hour bypass of a drive (counting photo opportunity stops) it's a shame. Fantastic views everywhere, great overlooks and wonderful rock formations. If you hate interstate highways and want to see... More

Valley of Fire State Park is further from Las Vegas than Red Rock Canyon (60 miles vs. less than 20 miles) but it is definitely worth the trip. Like Red Rock Canyon, it is interesting even if you are just driving, getting out at the visitor center, etc. rather than hiking. For hiking, I prefer Red Rock Canyon, but the... More

We've travelled to Las Vegas five times but only just discovered this gem. The park is reached from exit 75 on Interstate 15, and takes about an hour to reach the visitors centre. Admission is a bargain at $10 per vehicle, and includes a map of the park. The park has just two roads, one running east to west and,... More

Great day trip from Las Vegas. After seeing the artificial, the illusions in the city, this was a great way to get grounded in raw, unedited nature. There is something for everyone, the hard core hikers who crave extreme to the casual walkers. Even if you don't want to leave your car, there are photo ops and beautiful vistas. Don't... More

We drove out from Vegas in under an hour on a beautiful day to the Valley of Fire State Park and really enjoyed the stunning red rock formations. There is a $10 entry fee to the park and visitors centre further in where you can purchase food and drinks. If you follow the road out you can drive to Lake... More

What an awesome day! Our guide was Steve Robbins and he helped make our day. The Valley of Fire park was beautiful. Would definitely go again. Ask for Robbins for your guide.

We ended up here on coincidence on our way back to las Vegas, after 3 weeks of touring around in an RV. This park was a big surprise for us! Even after Grand Canyon, Moab, Zion, etc. this is still a beautiful park. Nice views, but get out of the car to really appreciate the surroundings. Very photogenic to, especially... More
