A great place to visit anytime of the day.

Usually we go to Valley of fire late morning or early afternoon. This time I went with the expressed intention of getting sunrise photos. I arrived well before sunrise and used the self check in to pay my fee and be on my way. Since I had already decided where I wanted to be for sunrise it was no time at all before I was there and set up. In all of my visits to Valley of fire I have never seen any of the wildlife that is there except for right around the visitor center. This time I was treated to two bands of rocky mountain sheep. They were very accommodating and posing for photos. So not only did I get my sunrise photos but also wildlife photos. Makes me want to go back for more

A Fun Day
May 2021
About an hour drive outside of Vegas, not a bad drive at all, we had a great day at Valley of Fire, it was our Son's 1st visit and we also took our 2 year old puppy with us and it was a perfect day, just at the start of May before it got too hot outside. We hadn't been there for years and forgot how amazing it is to visit and how beautiful the rocks are. Be prepared to walk a lot but it is totally worth the sore feet later. I wouldn't recommend going in the summer, between the heat and thunderstorms, can be a tough day but in the spring and fall, it's a must do for any nature lover!

Beautiful
Nov 2021 • Couples
The scenery was just spectacular. We hiked the white dome trail, the mouse tank trail and the fire wave trail. All were well maintained and provided unique views. Saw several mountain goats - a few very close to the trail for some great photos. Take plenty of water. The views even driving were beautiful. Highly recommend the quick drive down fire canyon road - great photo ops.

Bring water and more water
Nov 2021 • Friends
Lots of great views and variety of formations. Lots of sand. Shaded picnic areas. Take at least TWICE as much water as you think you might need as there is not a lot of places to refill and the dry heat uses more.

Seven Wonders trail was fun and challenging but it is NOT marked so be sure you have an app like All trails.

The cabins were a neat stop too.

Fabulous state park easily compares to any NP!
Oct 2021
This little state park has it all; beautiful vistas, wave rock formations, natural arch, ancient native rock art, enjoyable hiking, all an easy drive from nearby Lake Mead and Las Vegas !
You shouldn’t just drive through, although the drive is spectacular, stop at the parking sites and hike in to get the full thrill, you won’t be sorry.

A Beautiful Site to Behold…and worth the drive!
Sep 2021 • Friends
Wow. What can I say about this place? Unbelievable, breathtaking, beautiful, historic, exhilarating! I’ve been following VOF for a long time. I’ve always told myself I’ll set aside the time to go while in Vegas…needless to say, it’s taken me at least 10 years to finally visit. And it didn’t disappoint! Plan to leave early to get there when it opens. Low $15 entry fee for non-Nevada plates. Ranger will give you an easy to follow park map. We decided to drive to the end of the park first and work our way back up stopping along the way before it got too hot. We pulled off in designated parking areas and got out on foot hiking and snapping photos along the way. We did this continually for about three hours as the temps rose quickly to 95 degrees. There were a few spots we chose to skip because of the heat that we now regret that we missed. Some things to keep in mind… bring plenty of water, sunscreen, a hat, protective clothing and comfortable shoes! Pack out what you pack in! We cooled off in the small museum/gift shop. If it had not been 97 degrees by the time we left, we would have stayed all day! This is not a destination to miss. I am already planning my next trip to Vegas in the spring, and VOF will be on the top of the list to see.

Photographer's dream!
Oct 2021 • Couples
The park is simply captivating! The landscape is alive with vibrant colors that leave you in awe. One can simply do the "windshield tour" kind of thing and come away satisfied.

However, the formations seem to call out to you, just begging to be explored. Not five minutes past the entry gate and we were exploring on foot. My wife and I spent hours in the midst of different trails, caves, and outcroppings. When the sun began to sink in the sky, the desert crags and hills began to glow in redish-orange hues.

Go! It will be time well spent!

What an amazing park! It really is a diamond in the rough! You are driving through the barren tumble weed land and then low and behold this gorgeous miracle! Can't even describe the beauty! Camping is first come first serve so be prepared.

This was a cool place, so many different area and great stuff to see. The different colors and patterns in the rocks were phenomenal so glad we added this to the list. We saw tons of mountain goats which was great.
