This was Nevada's first State Park since 1935. It was so cool to see all the natural formations and the petroglyphs that are 4000 years old. This place has hiking and cabins and camping. So much to offer!

We are from the UK and this was our first (and only) RV trip. We really wanted to book every night, but this site was not bookable. So we turned up, late afternoon, and got the very last site that included power as well as water. You take your envelope, find your site and then pay. If you pay first... More

The "Valley of Fire" , about an hours drive from the Vegas Strip is definitely worth a visit. It is a really awesome drive through the valley to view nature at it's best. There is also a very modern visitors centre where numerous souvenirs are available. Well worth the visit.

Although the Valley of Fire is about 60 miles northeast of the Vegas strip the trip is well worth the time to get there. From the outside it is a lot like Red Rock Conservation are but is just different enough to be enjoyable. There are so many nooks and crannies to explore you could easily spend all day there....

Okay, so I am a geologist and an avid hiker. But still, it was a very exciting place to visit. We ventured along one of the smaller trails (and into the outcrops) seeing great desert flowers, wonderful rock features, a teeny rattle snake and lots of interesting rocks. If you want to see petrified wood and colorful agate, this is... More

Be very sure to have lots of water on hand! It is beautiful but hat and a very dry heat. The rock formations are spectacular. Make sure to visit the visitor center if for no other reason than to refill that water bottle. The visitor center explains the geology of the area, has a decent sampling of the flora and... More

The valley at sunset is so beautiful that I don't have enough words to describe it and even if I did, they wouldn't do it justice. There are so many things to there you wouldn't get bored for years. They have the road which meanders through the park and will present you views that you never imagined existed. The hiking... More

The drive was lovely. We stupidly followed some other people without noticing the markers for this trail that led to the right.. and took the wrong path down the river bed to the left. It was still and ok walk.. but would have rather seen the Fire Wave we had intended to see. and there is NO SHADE... Bring water!!
