We spent Saturday in this state park which is approximately 60 miles from Las Vegas. The views are both spectacular and stunning. The rock formations are simply amazing and some of the panoramic views are breathtaking. There are also plenty of trails for hiking… We took The White Dome trail where numerous movies, including parts of Star Trek Generations and... More

While is Las Vegas I decided to rent a motorcycle for the day and headed out to Valley of Fire. The views were stunning and provided a great ride through the twisty roads. There are plenty of places to stop for pictures and to simply take in the scenery. A fantastic day of riding!

This park is a must see! We visited the park today and were overwhelmed by the natural beauty of the area. The visitor center was helpful and informative as they suggested that we start early on the White Dome trail loop and work our way back. So much to see that it would take many visits to fully enjoy the... More

So thrilled that we took the time to locate this out of the way park- go early before the crowds as you will want to see ALL the park has to offer.

Beautiful state park with beautiful red rock formations. Ten dollar admission per car is well worth it. A lot can be seen from the road, but there are also many hiking trails to explore other areas. Go early on hot days to beat the heat and crowds.

This State Park is amazing. The red Aztec sandstone is just a wonderful site to see, as you can see how nature has eroded the sandstone, which makes for a spectacular effect. Plant life is mostly creosote bush, burro bush and brittlebush. There are many places to hike and experience the fantastic vistas. A lot of the hikes are short,... More

I picked my husband up from McCarran airport and we drove straight to Valley of Fire for the first activity of our long weekend trip. It's only $10 to enter the park for a day, which is well worth it for what the park offers. There are two overall qualities that contribute to my love of this place: 1. There... More

Unusual red rock formations with good trails. We did the 3/4 mile trail to see the petroglyphs. The geological formations are amazing. The visitors center provides so much information along with historical artifacts. Good paved roads for touring. Recommend driving in from Overton and returning out through the park toward I-15 and North Las Vegas. Be sure to bring plenty... More

An incredible state park which could rival many National Parks. Everywhere you look it's one incredible view after another. Great hiking trails of varying lengths - a place you might not expect so close to Las Vegas. If you are in Vegas take a day trip here to refresh your soul.
