The scenery around southern Nevada is not nearly as neat as Arizona and Utah. Red Rock State Park and Valley of Fire State Park are good appetizers for stuff you can see that is similar in Utah or Arizona. This trip we were actually just trying to get from I-15 over to Echo Bay. Unfortunately they charge $10 just to... More

My wife and I first visited Valley of Fire over 20 years ago but only drove the scenic drive and didn't take the time to really explore the park until this past fall. Since then, I've visited four more times and can't wait to get back. If you just hike the trails and attractions described in the park brochure I... More

I drove down from Hoover dam started from Las vegas. It was quite a long drive through the state park. You can see plenty of mountains totally red like they were set on fire. Hence the name I suppose. There were nobody to collect the entry charges. We had to just put the exact amount or more in the envelopes... More

Driving through the desert to the Valley of Fire was certainly breathtaking. The stark beauty emphasized how small ones day to day problems really are. I found myself in awe of Gods creation . Definitely worth a visit.

Valley of Fire State Park was on my way from Las Vegas to Zion National Park, so we (my family and I) decided to stop in. It is a bit in the middle of nowhere, but the short detour off the highway is worth it! It is beautiful and inexpensive, two things I look for in any of my vacation... More

We went here on a sunny day. It was beautiful. The petroglyphs were plentiful and easy to access. There are hikes of all difficulty. I am glad we were there in the winter as it is probably really hot in the summer. Took lots of amazing photos.

The red rock landscape that is so abundant in Utah can also be seen close to Vegas. At the Valley of Fire, which is about an hour driving from Vegas you have magnificent scenery. I took several friends there on different trips and everybody was very exited. There are even some native American petroglyphs to be seen. If you want... More

Recommended by two different people so we couldn't miss out on something the locals love. Absolutely stunning scenery, truly breathtaking in the sunshine, the colours are amazing. Visit the visitors centre to see information about the park and how old it is...550 million years should be just enough history for enthusiasts and geologists amongst us. Well worth the 10 dollar...

No words to describe the beauty in this park! Take time to spend in the park. You have to explore all over and you can't rush it. If you are lucky enough to be there at sunset the rocks glow as if they are on fire. I would not take the longer route from Lake Mead side. It costs $10... More

Loved all the formations and colors. Was a bit of a drive (about an hour and a half) from Vegas, but well worth it. Be prepared to spend the day.
