Even thou it is a bit smaller than expected it is hard to say anything other than "this is a must see" when in Vegas region.

We had a guide that got us away from all the crowds and we got a quiet and enjoyable sunset walk.

This was a great place to spend a day on our trip to Vegas. I have breathing issues since I got Covid 10 months ago and can no longer hike (hopefully it will be temporary) so was looking for a park to visit that my husband could do some minor hiking and I could still visit and enjoy the view. We drove all over the park and it was amazing, beautiful and fascinating. The views are unique, the colors are spectacular. We managed to pick a day that there was only like 6 other cars in the whole place. We were greeted at the start by a Bighorn (he was watching the road). Would definitely go back again.

The Valley of Fire is an absolutely stunning state park located an hour north of Las Vegas. Featuring truly stunning vistas, red rocks, millennia-old petroglyphs and herds of gorgeous bighorn sheep — this park gets less traffic than red rocks but is right up there with some of America’s most popular parks in terms of its beauty.

I tell all my friends and any one going to Las Vegas. It is not too far and you don't have to hike if you don't want to, as there are great places to see even if you stay in the car. You should get out at the information center to see the exhibits. Before you get to the park entrance there is a gas station and a reservation store.

Valley of Fire is Nevada’s first state park and truly beautiful. It cost $15 for the car. It’s open sunrise to sunset, however the entrance isn’t staffed until 8:30 AM. We arrived around 8 AM and used the self pay kiosk. There is so much to do and see here. We stopped at most the things you could drive and see and then did the hike to the Fire Wave. The path isn’t marked super great, but we easily found it. The visitor center opened at 10 AM and the sign said it closed at 4 PM. The bathrooms throughout could use some attention, but overall we had a great visit and would highly recommend Valley of Fire.

Drove out from Vegas for the day... it was my second time here. The first time was just quick detour stop on the way to Zion.

Did three easy/moderate hikes. The views were just awesome. My favorite part was the little slot canyon hike. First time my wife hiked a slot canyon and it was the highlight of her entire Vegas trip.

Needed to brush up on my geology as there was so much to take in. The visitors center did a good explaining what we saw.

Great little hidden gem about an hour outside of Vegas. We drove out there twice. Tons of beautiful sites. Driving routes, walking trails galore. Bicycle paths. So much to see. Highly recommend.

National Park is wonderfull but you need to be very carefull on the hot weather, at noon it's so warm and maybe you can't see you sweting because it evaporates quickly under the sun.
Take care, but also enjoy the adventure of the desert.
The trip from Las Vegas takes around 1 hour, so you can come and go during one day, even a afternoon traveling by your own car.
