World-renowned for its 40,000 acres of bright red Aztec sandstone outcrops nestled in gray and tan limestone, Valley of Fire State Park contains ancient, petrified trees and petroglyphs dating back more than 2,000 years. A Visitor Center provides exhibits on the geology, ecology, prehistory and history of the park and nearby region. The park also hosts an Annual Atlatl Competition in which participants test their skills with replicas of ancient spears. Open year round, the park has numerous campsites equipped with shaded tables, grills and water, as well as many intriguing trails to tempt hikers.

Very scenic, huge Red Sandstone boulders, mountains, & hills.  Great hiking.  Campground very nice, but sites not to level.  About 20 full hookup sites there.

This is a great place to spend a week in the winter.  There are several campsites that are suitable for Beaver’s.  Go during the week and you should have no trouble getting in. Its an easy drive from Las Vegas.
