Valley of Fire State Park

A striking Nevada state park known for its red sandstone formations, petroglyphs, and desert landscapes, just an hour from Las Vegas.

Tips from the community

Thanks to ever-changing sand dunes from 150 million years ago, we now have the Valley of Fire: a swirly landscape of orangey-red Aztec sandstone formations just 150 miles from Grand Canyon National Park. If soft-serve ice cream could become petrified, this is most definitely what it would look like. It’s also a super short drive south from Las Vegas, so you can try your luck on a slot machine and drown your woes in natural beauty when you inevitably lose a bunch of cash!

Just 55 miles south of Las Vegas and 150 miles from the Grand Canyon lies Valley of Fire State Park: A 46,000-acre wonderland known for its stunning red sandstone formations. These cartoon-like rocks illuminate the valley, especially at sunset, making it look as though it’s on fire. We liken it to a trippy Dr. Seuss book.

There is a fee to enter the park. There are so many places to see here! Look for the cabins that travelers used to stay at on their way through the area.

Combined with marbled stone structures of various hues of copper, and gorgeous desert landscape, this Nevada park offers a feast of fiery visuals.
