This is perhaps the most beautiful state park that I've ever seen. About an hour from Vegas and one could make a loop around Lake Mead, although that would require a National Park fee or membership card. The state park itself has a fee of ~ $10, but well worth it. You can see a lot from your car so it is very suitable for the elderly or handicap. There are some great hiking trails in the park as well, although I only did a short 45 minute jaunt as I was on a tight schedule. I will definitely return for an entire day trip. If driving from Vegas to Zion or north into Utah, one should make the time and effort to visit this park that is not that far out of the way.

Really enjoyed the park it is a more or less a drive park small walk do it again type park. It is less crowded than Red Rock. The day I was there the Pronghorn Sheep where out and about. It was 104 degrees so hiking was a bit hard. Lots of sand
Really enjoyed the entire park not to crazy with people. The visitor centre is limited for food and water so make sure you bring your own

We visited Red Rock Canyon and Valley of Fire in the same day. Red Rock was nice, Valley of Fire was incredible. We loved driving through the park and seeing the sights. We would love to come back when it's not so hot to hike and camp. 110 was just too hot for us. It's just a little bit of a drive from Las Vegas but more than worth the drive. The place was absolutely stunning. I'm sure you'll enjoy it too.

What a fun trip, we did the buggy trip and how fun. The scenery, dunes and experience was excellent. The rocks and trails were a lot of fun. I wore a long sleeved white shirt and khaki pants, they quickly turned an odd red color. There was reddish dust everywhere, couldn't wait to shower. Clothes were not able to be worn again, which is fine, boyfriend only brought one pair of pants, so his legs were cold on the flight home:). Great experience.

We had a spare half day and decided to visit the Valley of Fire based on several recommendations I read online. We already visited Red Rock Canyon) which we really enjoyed) and I can confirm that the geological features here are even better. At Red Rock, it feels like you’re driving up to the geological formations, but in the Valley of Fire you’re actually driving through it. I also think the petroglyphs at Valley of Fire are fascinating.

The only mistake we made was underestimating how much time we would need. Our plan was to only drive the routes and get out of the car at the marked stops to take pictures. No hiking. I thought it would only take about 4 hours overall, but was closer to 6 hours.

Still highly recommended. Probably better to not to visit in the summer when it’s so hot, and make sure to set aside an entire day.
