Valley of Fire is best in the spring weather. The summers can get up into the 110 degree area (not fun) but that aside. Numerous rock formations, petroglyphs, old buildings (Civil Corp project called The Cabins) and vistas that are amazing.

This is a must see when you visit the Las Vegas area! Beautiful views, amazing rock formations, petrified logs and petroglyphs. My only regret is not allowing more time to explore this park.

Incredibly awesome! We are avid nature lovers and this was a perfect day spent off the Las Vegas Strip. Make sure you have a tank full of gas before you start your adventure and plenty of time to appreciate this work of art. We will make this a definite stop on our next trip. Consider packing a lunch and wear... More

Was in Las Vegas visiting family and friends and wanted to do something different this time. So we switched out our dancing shoes and put on some hiking boots. We headed out to the state park which is further than Red Rock Canyon north of the strip... mostly highway driving then you exit where they host the RISE Festival. There... More

We spent the $10 and drove through the state park. It really is very pretty and we saw quite a few cars pulled over to the sides in different areas - assume hikers. We did the drive on our way back from the Hoover Dam heading towards Las Vegas. It was a great side trip and nice to get away... More

Very beautiful and colourful experience that should not be missed when visiting Las Vegas. This is mostly a drive through sightseeing trip. There are a few places to stop and get off the road. Many places for photo opportunities. The rock formations are like no others with red limestone washed away into interesting shapes. Allow at least 2 - 3... More

$10 fee to enter even if you're military. So many different places to hike. Rock climbing easy enough for kids at Seven Sisters. Bring your dogs and hike over the hills and do some gentle climbing. The views are spectacular and maybe you'll get to see the sheep.

What a highlight of our vacation! To leave the noise and people behind to go to one of the most spectacular sights that nature can provide. This was an entire day of peace, quiet and natural beauty! A slight charge ($10) to enter the park was nothing when compared to the sights you can see. Just unreal! Best to go... More
