Valley of Fire State Park is a MUST SEE during your time in Nevada.

Valley of Fire

The name “Valley of Fire” came from from the bold red sandstone formations that formed from sand dunes 150 million years ago.

How long do you need?

When planning our day trip to the Valley of Fire, it’s really up to you to decide how long you’d like to spend.

We went for a half a day (about 4 hours) and found that was a good amount of time to explore the state park by car and take some photos. However, if you’d like to hike the trails you will need a full day to do this.

Valley of Fire entrance fees

The entrance fees to the park are $10 for Nevada state vehicles and $15 for out of state. Camping fees vary $20-$30 depending on vehicle and utility hookups. Bike fees are just $2.

What to bring

You’ll definitely want to bring a good pair of shoes, water, and a camera! There is a gift shop and info center on location with beverages, snacks, maps, and general help navigating the area.

Since I’m extra, I brought two outfits – a cute one for photos and a practical one if I wanted to hike. Check out some of my favorite Vegas outfits so you can travel in style!

Exploring the Valley of Fire makes for the perfect day of adventure and is a refreshing nature break from bustling Vegas.
