This was the best ever. The best!!! So beautiful! We went to Mouse's Tank, saw petroglyphs, different colored sand and stone. We barely even scratched the surface, since the park is huge. We saw big horned sheep too. We were lucky to see that. I can't wait to come back.

Was excited to bring my family to Valley of Fire today. Spoke to concierge last night at hotel as I am from out of town. I happen to check the website this morning & it said it was closed. Who closes a state park on a weekend? I am not sure of their hours on other days so be sure... More

The geology of this area is very interesting. The petroglyphs are amazing, and if you look there are some that are not on the regular trails. If you are there in the summer make sure to take water, hat and sunscreen.

This day trip one hour from Vegas is worth the drive. Hidden behind hills after a drive through the desert, Valley of Fire showcases geological formations with beauty and grace. The wind-shaped sandstone forms whimsical shapes. There are many points to park and hike from, although in the heat hikes are not recommended. You can see petroglyphs and scramble up... More

We rented a car and took an easy drive out to the Valley of Fire. What an incredible site.. We had an incredible day doing a number of hikes and got some beautiful photos. There is a small hiking map which they hand out at the ranger station. Highly recommended. Bring lots of water!

This place is amazing. So many different trails and different red rock formations. We have been three times and have not seen it all yet. Very nice park.

Our family of 4 (kids ages 16 and 7) was trying to decide on Red Rock Canyon and Valley of Fire. We are so glad we went to Valley of Fire. It was a blast. We had so much fun climbing and exploring. There are some places were you forget you are on planet earth. It is that unbelievable. The... More

For years I have heard about the beauty of Red Rocks, but this park blows Red Rocks out of the water. It has some of the most beautiful desert landscape that I have ever seen. Be sure to hike out to the Fire Wave. (It is not on the hiking trail map on the website, so ask if you can't... More

Great place to see. Won't comment further on view just go and see it. What I will say is we read about taking scenic route back to Vegas via Lake Mead conservation which you will see at end of drive thru Valley of Fire......don't do it cost another $10 and scenery was not impressive and the drive is long and...
