A friend recommended this park. We loved it! It was hot but so worth it to see the amazing sights. The visitor center is air conditioned and sells drinks. A nice place to cool off between hikes.

Driving into Valley of Fire is like driving into an alien land. The rock formations and intense colors are amazing. Well worth the side trip from the interstate!

Very near Las Vegas, a worthwhile venture to the amazing rock formations and views. Good hiking opportunity, for young and old, and don't forget to visit the several ancient petroglyphs. It's hot so bring plenty of water and a picnic.
