Don't go here. Stay in Vegas. Tell others not to go. I want it for all mine. Great views and huge rewards on every hike. Just stay home.

Nevada's first state park is an hour drive from Las Vegas. There is a $10 entry for your vehicle. The park is stunning and a visual feast. You can drive to many of the rock formations. The roads are excellent. Worth the trip and time!

If you are planning to visit Vegas you need to visit the valley of fire. This state park is about 50 miles north of Las Vegas. You should plan to be there for at least a half a day. This park is in the middle of the desert and it has red rock formations that are simply amazing. There are... More

Stopped by here after visiting Zion Natl park, so my expectations were low and I was skeptical on even bothering to stop. Only 11 miles off the I 15 freeway and 30 miles north of Las Vegas, this a must see for all nature lovers and hikers. This park has hoodoos, Indian hieroglyphics, and the most amazing colored rock I... More

An all-too hurried visit to an undersold and largely ignored beauty spot. This is only 40-50 minutes north of Vegas and is a wonderful vista of the true beauty of the Western USA. For those of us who find the Strip all too sad and depressing I urge you to hire a mustang convertible, pack some decent hiking shoes and... More

We were in Las Vegas and decided to drive over to Lake Mead then on to Valley of Fire State Park. It is only about an hour away. You can either drive it or get out and walk. Rock formations are beautiful - we took a short hike through a slot canyon. Also saw some of the hieroglyphs.

it was so beautiful here. every corner led to a new, picturesque scene. we didn't have enough time to explore so i would definitely go back. you need about 3 or 4 hours here to enjoy it. i liked this park better than red rock.

Meant to only spend a short time here and ended up hiking around for hours. Many places to see petroglyphs and amazing red rock formations. Being a trekkie it was also fun to see where they filmed Captain Kirks death scene. Next time I'll bring flowers in some alien color.

Hubby and I decided to venture off the strip. Went to Red Rock Canyon, hiked and picnicked there but wanted something else. Found a review about Valley of Fire (an hour drive off the strip). It was worth it! You leave the highway and drive about 15 minutes before you enter the state park. It's very little money to enter... More
