I saw an article on this in the National Geographic and wanted to see it. It simply takes your breath away. Bring tons of water if you visit in the summer. There really isn't any shade and it's hot!

We really enjoyed our ride thru this park. It isnt far out of the way, easy off and back on I-15 going or leaving Vegas. We were really surprised on how much there is to see. Take water and maybe lunch, enjoy a picnic along the way.

I have been to the Valley of Fire a few times and it is absolutely spectacular. There are amazing views, colors, and hiking trails. You should definitely bring along your camera and plenty of water. The park contains beautifully preserved, 3000 year old petroglyphs, interesting rock formations, places to picnic, and trails. If you are visiting Las Vegas, this is... More

It was a real surprise during vegas visit. A beautiful drive to the national treasure, different red rock formation welcome you, once you will enter int the valley of fire. The day we been there, temp was around 107 f. Despite of the hot n humid temp, we enjoyed a lot.

We spent a day here during our stay in Las Vegas. The rock formation is spectacular, I wouldn't believe this is just a state park. We hiked and took so many pictures, they are so beautiful! It is a must in Nevada!

After reading about the Valley of Fire on TripAdvisor last winter we incorporated a visit into this year's road trip. We never would have known about it otherwise, as the area's lower profile as a state vs. national park seems to keep it off the average traveler's radar. We arrived from Utah via I-15 and took the cutoff through Overton,... More

There were 4 couples that went to Vegas for a 40th birthday. We did numerous outings which included the helicopter tour and landing in the Grand Canyon. Out of everything we did, renting 4 exotic convertible cars and driving through the Valley of Fire was the highlight for me. Such a beautiful ride with the sun shining, the tunes blaring... More

We took a day off from a Vegas convention to visit this park and Hoover Dam and found it the highlight of the trip (should note, though, that we're not huge Vegas fans.) The drive through the park's winding main road, with massive red rock formations on all sides, was spectacular. The visitor center was nice (bonus points, too, for... More

We had a great time visiting Nevada's Valley of Fire State Park. On July 3rd. my wife and I drove about an hour northeast of Vegas to visit the park. Even though it was 100+ degrees outside it was still worth the visit. Our 1st stop was the visitors center where we paid $10.00 to drive the 10.5 mile stretch.... More

Obviously July is not the best time to head out to the desert to do much of anything. But we were ready to get away from the strip and see something different. It took only about an hour to get to the park and we were glad we took the time. The scenery is beautiful and interesting. We took a... More
