On your way out of Las Vegas make sure and take the time to go about 20 miles off Interstate 15 to see this Park. You can drive through most of it with a number of hikes available. Absolutely stunning!!!

This was a side trip we took from the Vegas strip! This was the highlight of our trip. The rock formations were awesome and it was breathtaking! Definitely check this out while in Vegas.

An unexpected jewel. We flew into Las Vegas to drive to see son in military. Not gamblers so decided to drive around the state. This park was so not what we expected, it was more. I wish we had more time to hike the trails. The park rangers were so nice and informative. The formations were spectacular. We did get... More

A hidden gem and great hiking adventure close to Vegas. It's a great way to get away from the overwhelming throng of people in town. Definitely worth the drive to get away?

Awesome place! We didnt even have to get out of the car you could see most of the breathtaking views sitting comfortably in the air conditioning of the car, believe me in the high summer season it can be 123 degrees out there in the desert! If you have a Pooch i would recommend getting them little doggie booties for... More

I was spending the week in Vegas but wanted to see some desert beauty as well. The state park was a nice change! So much to see, and easily accessible. In less than an hour I was in another world, away from the crowded streets of the strip. I spent around 3 hours visiting the park and that's probably the... More

I've been to Vegas countless times but never knew about this place until recent years. More to see than the Red Rock in Vegas. You can take longer but more scenic Lake Mead National Recreation Area(fee was $10 but $20 as of 2016) and entered to west entrance of Valley of Fire. Or via faster 15fwy. It's a state park... More

It was a nice drive from Las Vegas. The desert was amazing! We took several photos, no matter where you go/stop you can take nice photos. The colors of the rocks and the desert were just fantastic! Take plenty of water with you!

Being from the Midwest I have never seen the desert and it was definitely awesome. The colors of the rocks and the formations were so cool. It was too hot to hike here on the day that we went but we did a scenic drive and took a lot of pictures. Definitely check out this park if you are in... More

We spent a day walking and driving around Valley of Fire state park during our recent trip to Nevada in early September 2016. It was a great day out and about, the hikes can be easy or more difficult and the views were amazing. Take plenty of water to drink!
