Love the park . The only not so great thing about it was that it was very fine sand and made for not so easy hiking.

I had read a review in a travel magazine recommending the Valley of Fire State Park so I decided to check it out. It was a great one day experience that anyone should try and explore when visiting LV. It is just an easy one hour drive from downtown Las Vegas and from the entry point to exit you will... More

When Lady Luck isn't smiling on you in the casino jungles of Vegas, take an hour drive to the Valley of Fire State Park in Overton and let the beauty of mother nature soothe your soul. The amazing red rock formations are very similar to the ones I saw at the Garden of the Gods park near Colorado Springs and... More

Not far from las Vegas. Seven Sisters is my favorite place for picnic.bring plenty of water and sunflower seeds for the ground squirrels who are quite the little beggars. Became friends with most of them and discovered the fresh unshelled almonds are favorites. The park is just magnificent but tends to be very hot in the summer. Bring plenty of... More

The rock formations are amazing with beautiful views in all directions. The Ranger recommended White Domes and Mouse's Tank which were both lovely. The Petroglyphs on the Mouse's Tank trail are superb. The Visitor's Center has nice displays that are very informative. The small gift shop has a cooler with cold drinks which were great after our hikes. Be sure... More

I always tell those persons who respond with: "I'm not a gambler", that Las Vegas has a cornucopia of 'something for everyone'. VOF St. Park is a hidden gem, easily accessible that the Casinos won't be telling you about. The views and the colour of the rock formations are absolutely breathtaking and other worldly! A fantastic break from the neon... More

We traveled in our rented car from Las Vegas to view the Valley of Fire. The colour of the rock formations was stunning. You drove down in to a valley and there out of nowhere these ridges of brightly coloured Red Rock formations appeared. These formations presented many photo ops. Makes you wonder about the forces of erosion that created... More
