Red sandstone rock formations more than 150 million years old lend the name to Valley of Fire State Park. Established in 1935, Nevada's oldest park spans nearly 17,000 hectares (42,000 acres) and includes ample hiking and camping opportunities. You’ll have the chance to explore different geological formations, such as limestone and shale. Because the sandstone is so soft, you’ll see petroglyphs (rock art carved into the sandstone), dating as far back as 300 BCE created by the ancient Anasazi Pueblo people. The visitor center details the geologic and archaeological roots of the region. If you keep a sharp eye out, you may even spot the rare desert tortoise.

Valley of Fire State Park reviews
This National Park is breathtaking and so much better than Red Rocks. I'm so glad I went. I expected to spend 2 hours and ended spending 7. Each site area was unique and had it's own trail filled... more »
This adventure was the absolute best thing to do while in Vegas!! And Max was hands down the most amazing guide EVER!! He was full of information and so personable and just real. He made us feel... more »
I'm sorry. I read the reviews and was kind of let down on this one. To be fair, we were finishing up a trip of the Mighty 5 and had just been overwhelmed by gorgeous views and experiences, so maybe..... more »
Made the drive from Vegas to here on a recommendation, and loved it so much we went back a week later! Being from Indiana (flatter than a sheet of particle board), this state park blew my mind! Hiking for all ranges of comfort from "Grandma could hike this" to "Oh no, I should not have tried this without being a Navy Seal". The scenery is unreal, and one look at the colors let you know why it is called "valley of Fire". MAKE SURE to check out Elephant rock!
Loved it. Nature is powerful and doesn't happen over night! We were blown away by everything we saw! There are many stop by where you can enjoy the sceneries, take pictures, picnic, hiking etc. Careful with the heat if you plan to visit during the summer. The entrance fee is very accessible: $10 per car. This is a must do. It was one of our dreams and it was way better than what we thought
Valley of Fire is the most incredible park I have visited. The scenic drives are indescribably beautiful. Pictures can't do it justice. There are many opportunities for hiking and exploring. If you are anywhere in the area I strongly suggest visiting. You won't regret it.
Beautiful 42,000 acres! Vistas that go on forever! We saw a baby big horn sheep right on the road, lizards and amazing rock formations. The Visitor Center is fabulous! Like a museum! They were very welcoming to me and my service dog. I want to go back again. So wonderful!
Awesome park.. The views, color contrast and terrain is stunning. Hiking can range from easy to moderate.. Didn't find anything too difficult. Definitely catch the fire wave... The fake narrows as I call it.. The elephant rock... And of course that iconic valley shot with the road in the center. I'd start super early since temperatures can sour.
