I made sure I stopped here for a what was originally going to be a couple of hours on my way from Vegas to the National Parks in southern Utah (Zion/Bryce/etc).

I ended up staying about 4 hours! And I barely even scratched the surface of this place.

The scenery is breathtaking and easily compares with any of the bigger, more well-known National Parks in the Utah/Arizona area. Even if some of the formations weren't named, I had a lot of fun trying to name many of the weird shapes. I have so many photos of this place but nothing will come close to the fantastic memories I have!

Will go back here again - even though it's a bit hard for me to return given I live in Australia!

Many a Star Trek scene was filmed here! Awesome park, so much to see, you'd have to camp here to see it all and it would take a week. Take a guided tour first to see the highlights, then camp if you wish and re-see the sights or new ones! Late fall early spring best times. As with the desert it gets cold at night so be prepared.

One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen! Do not miss it if you are anywhere close to Vegas. Pictures cannot do justice for such an amazing park.

We drove through the Valley of Fire on our way to Zion National Park in Utah. It was approximately 30 minutes off the highway. Well worth the detour. It was $10 per vehicle to drive through the park. We drove through and came out on the other side back on the road to Utah. Beautiful rocks and bright fire red. We did not get time to stop and venture the park, but we do plan on going back. Even if you only have an hour to spare, driving through is an experience itself.

I've lived in Las Vegas for 10 years and this has always been my favorite park. It's very underrated because people don't know it's here, even locals! My husband is a park ranger there so I've gotten to see some beautiful places in the park most people haven't seen. You can hike any where in the park, but be careful. It's easy to get lost and even when it's only 65 out, the sun will still be blazing. My husband has had to search and rescue dozens of people, and treat them for heat stroke. During the off season (Memorial Day - Labor Day) they don't do any guided hikes, and they strongly recommend that you do not hike. It's around 110-115 during the summer and hiking on the sand/ rocks makes it feel even hotter! Also they do not take reservations for the camp grounds. It's on a first come basis. October is usually the busiest month because the weather in Vegas is just coming out of the high temps. November, March, April, and May are busy as well.

This was such a great camping experience!! Take a break from Las Vegas and come here. Its only 45 minutes away, but the landscape looks like Mars.

If you want to camp you should make a reservation--I recommend you do. You'll have the whole place pretty much to yourself! Most road visitors just barely pull off the road and snap some photos. The facilities are nice though, subtle and good-looking and hidden behind the giant red rocks. There are counters for cooking, picnic tables, fire pits, and bathrooms.

We put cots up on the roof and slept in the open air, waking up with the sunrise. It's also fun to sleep in a sleeping bag in the open air in one of the many cave-like nooks around the campsite.

This is a wonderful park. The scenery is breath taking. Fun to watch for the desert big horn sheep, and look for different animal tracks in the sand.

We stumbled upon this state park and were blown away by its beauty! Great for quickly driving through or taking time for hiking / climbing the huge rocks. Also plenty of picnic tables if you want to have a picnic. Would definitely recommend stopping, especially if you're driving from Zion National Park to Las Vegas!!
