It is a beautiful park with great views. You could just drive through and get plenty from it but you will want to stop and get out . Many times. Was very quiet on a mid January Tuesday midday.

Not at all redundant. Two very different places. I prefer Valley of Fire State Park. It is a far larger park with the most intriguing rock formations. There are also short hikes to see petroglyphs. I continue to return.
