There are many places to hike in this red sandy park. Make sure you've got sunscreen, water and good walking shoes. We went here when the heat index was 112 degrees, so we didn't do to much walking that day. We still really enjoyed the sight though.

This place is just magical and not to be missed! Sure, Red Rock Canyon is spectacular but this is 100x times better. Any pictures you might have seen do not do justice to the place. You can visit it without ever leaving your car, but you will miss so much. If you worry about the heat or about if you... More

We rented a car in Vegas and drove here. The drive through the park was amazing and the scenery was spectacular. It was super hot, so make sure to go early in the day and bring snacks and lots of water. There is a small fee to get into the park and make sure to stop off at the visitor... More

It's about an hour drive from Las Vegas on the highway ! And it worths the trip ! Don't miss it ! The desert and the stone formation are very impressive ! Nice spot for photographers ! Don't forget to bring water because it's hot. I recommend it !

This place is amazing, its like landing on the moon. Red sands and sandstone everywhere, its hot so dont do it in the summer, do fall or spring before it goes over 100 degrees. Bring water, mostly drivable, they have camping , its one of a kind. Must see, and often overlooked being its still very close to Vegas.

I've been to less impressive National Parks! This place is amazing. For people who want to stay in the car, there are plenty of pullouts and beautiful vistas to keep you happy. For the more adventurous, the hiking trails are fabulous and beautiful. Just remember to take plenty of water. It gets HOT.

Valley of Fire state park is lovely... roads out to it are in need of help, but the park nicely maintains the road within. Hence the $10 fee ... Perfect for a Lambo ride....

I did not expect to be overwhelmed, but left after too short a time with a great appreciation and an almost full memory card of photos. The scenery was beautiful beyond expectation, and quite different from the landscape one sees from the highway access - it is as if you've dropped into a secret series of valleys and canyons filled...
