When my husband goes to Vegas for work this is what I look forward to, I love this park! The scenic drive is unbeatable, and I love the hike back to Mouse's Tank at the end of Petroglyph Canyon Trail.

I'm so glad our neighbors at Zion told us about this place!! We stopped by for a few nights on the way to Vegas. This place looked like rocks melted in hell. Because it was in the middle of winter, there were not very many campers so we had an area of a campground to ourselves. Cool rocks, pictographs, nice... More

Took the scenic long road along Lake Mead after stopping at the Hoover Dam to see this gem. It was beautiful. I loved all the red rocks and seeing them. I only wish we had planned more carefully. I was with my in laws who are really not outdoorsy hiker types and I was ill prepared to really do any... More

This is a hidden gem! It wasn't on our itinerary but a free day gave us a chance to see this beauty. While temps climbed to a toasty 104 degrees we still took several hikes. Our favorite was the White Domes loop which goes through a slot canyon. Hot, hot, hot.. but worth the effort especially if you take lots... More

To really appreciate the experience, wear good walking shoes and bring a lot of water!! We pretty much needed one bottle for every small trek. OK, with that said, this truly is a place of incredible views. The rock formations vary in color and composition; I saw rock structures, and structured, like I've never seen before! My husband and I... More

WHY is the Las Vegas strip so packed with people and this park is sooooo empty, we were the only ones at some stops??????? Seriously?!?!?! This is sooooo much more spectacular than anything I saw on "the strip". And the Valley of Fire will be the #1 reason why I return to Nevada! Forget "the strip". Forget Fremont Street. Forget...

Just 48 miles away from Vegas you'll find a place to relax and regalamos your Zen after spending time in sin city, you need to pay & $10 to access the park, but it's 100 worth it... MAKE SURE you are there before sunset, the light at that time of the day lights the rock formations on fire, due to... More

Only an hour away from Vegas is this incredible park. There is no words to describe this place. Obviously there are enough pictures of it so you can see how interesting it is. But, despite having seen a lot of them, I was in awe. Went there for a photoshoot project, it was hard to not see a place that... More

This place was stunning. You need to go in the early morning if going during the summer, since temps get really hot fast. The views are constantly changing not only as you travel down the roads but also as the sun shifts in the sky. My sons had a good time hiking around the White Domes area.
