Amazing beauty only 1 hour from Las Vegas. Totally worth the 10 usd park fee. Clean and good condition roads. Restrooms readily available. Parking spots too. Travelled back to Las Vegas on hwy 167 on the western side of Lake Mead: don't miss the epic scenery and almost deserted road! Photo opportunities all along way. Few views of Lake Mead... More

Get out of the smoky casinos and head to Valley of Fire to breathe some clean air and spend the day hiking. One hour drive north of Vegas. Great hiking trails with interesting rock formations. Perfect in the winter; would not go in the summer. Take a picnic with you; no food there. We spent 4 hours here; could have... More

You drive thru this beautiful area, out in the middle of nowhere. So be sure and take water. It's extremely interesting, all the neat red rock formations. It's a must see. It's a State Park so there is a fee for you to drive thru. If you go in the summer, it'll be HOT, so just be prepared. Dress cool... More

We've been here 3 times and it never ceases to amaze me. The color and the formation of the rocks are spectacular! There's also a visitors center where you can learn about the area and purchase souvenirs. However, please try to avoid visiting the area during summer.

Enjoyed this park, it is only 10 dollars for a car to enter. Super cheap if you ask me, we had a ton of fun looking at the drawings and the cabins. Worth a detour.

If you want to stretch your legs and escape the lights of vegas lose yourself in valley of fire. Spectacular vistas and great walks. Amaze at the vivid rock colours contrasting with vibrant blue skies. Grab some fresh air and escape. You'll appreciate the lights and slots on your return

We went to this state park and enjoyed our time very much. Driving out, you wonder where you are going, but when you come around the turn and see the rocks, it is well worth it. The cost to enter the park was very reasonable and to see all the beauty of nature was a great thing.

This is a little drive out of Vegas but it is spectacular. The red of the rocks is amazing. Allow enough time so that you can go for a hike, or just do the scenic drive. Well worth it!!
