This state park is located about fifty miles north from Las Vegas, so it is a very popular spot for day trips and campers. There are two campgrounds in the park right near each other - Atlatl Rock and Arch Rock. Atlatl has some electric sites, water and hot showers and fills up first and early; then later on mid-day Arch Rock campground fills up. We got there around 10 in the morning and found a spot in Atlatl. So many RV’s drove around looking for spots late in the afternoon and this was only a Thursday. Many rental RV’s with tourists from overseas. There were some electric sites open, but we chose to dry camp because the temperature was only around 75 degrees and our site was more private. The sandstone red rock formations are stunning. The host was very helpful and it is a self check-in station. We had to pay $10 to get into the park. When you self register for the campsite: if you put your gate receipt in the envelope it was another $10 for dry camping and $20 for electric. If you don’t include the receipt dry camping is $20 and electric $30. One can hike in the campground and the park itself has a visitor center. There is a variety of places to hike and pullouts for scenic views. Everyone has always raved about this state park and I can see why. It is beautiful! I wish that NV would release the handicapped sites at the end of the day so all those wanting to camp here could use them. Also, they should put out a campground full sign so that campers are not going through the campground late in the evening thinking there are sites available. The sign should be at the entrance gates so you do not have to drive in to find out. Another interesting point, it seems they only collect the fee into the park at the west gate, so if you come in and leave by the east gate you don’t have to pay. If you can’t find a camping spot there is also a great BLM spot right on a cliff just north of the east gate heading to Overton Beach. There were about 30 RV’s there when we drove by in the morning. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

Valley of Fire is a very nice, off the beaten path park. The place is clean, and when a campground is available the showers, and restroom are the cleanest you will ever find. Most of the park staff are very friendly, and knowledgeable. One of the perks I like about this park is you get meet folks from other countries. Give it a try, and you will return again.

Camping among the Red Rocks is a breathtaking experience. For a desert campground it is a 10 even though there are no sewer connections in individual campsites. Another drawback and the reason for my 8 rating is that the sites are level side to side, but not front to back. Cell service is non existent except in certain areas of the Park (That can be a good thing). You're 15 miles from a grocery store in Overton, NV. The park has many easy hiking trails. Each site has a shade shelter covering the provided table, a fire ring and charcoal grill. 50 amp service is available. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The most magical and unforgettable campground you will ever stay in. Plan on at least two nights; there's a lot to see here. Sites are very spacious but far from level; you will need 8 to 12 inches' worth of blocks for most of them. If not for that I would rate this a ten. We will not only stay here again, we go out of our way to make this park part of our itinerary anytime we're going to be within a hundred miles of this place.

This is a very unique campground, set amongst red rock formations in a desert wilderness. Water, 50 amps, but no sewer. Road and pad are gravel so dusty, but not all the pads are level. Pull throughs with good big rig access. Very quiet with plenty of space and privacy around the RV, covered picnic table, barbecue and fire ring but no shade trees. The views of the red rocks from our RV are breathtaking. Bathrooms are old and need a good clean. No Wi-Fi but cell is good. Overton is about 18 miles away, there is nothing there, so stock up with groceries before you arrive. There is lots to see and do in this spectacular area. We would stay here again. The dump station was out of order, and extremely difficult to access from the Atlatl site exit in a big rig, so we were unable to dump before we left. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

As usual, one of the nicest State Park campgrounds with hookups I've seen. Sites are incredible - large, level, clean, great hookups, and unreal views. We were here in the heat of summer, so there were only 4 other rigs in the campground with us. You will not be disappointed! We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

Don't miss this gem of a park, on the north shore of Lake Mead. Breathtaking red rock formations surround the campgrounds. For hookups, use the Atlatl camp, not Arch Rock. For a primitive camp in a smaller RV (say 24' or less) the Arch Rock camp is memorable. The $30 rate is for Atlatl, with water and power. Without the hookup, the rate is $20 per night. No TV, no wifi, but natural beauty by the cubic mile. Definitely will visit again. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Awesome campground in amazing state park. OK, it's the southwestern desert wilderness, so don't expect lawns, pools, etc. It's a state park. We camped in late December for 4 nights, the Atlatl campground was half to 3/4 full. We had one of the spots in the "first row" with an amazing sunrise and sunset view (at that time of year they're not that far apart). We've been touring the western deserts for years and somehow managed to overlook this gem of a park. Highly recommended in the right season. Don't try this in summer! The tent sites looked wonderful too. They're in the back tucked in between breath-taking sandstone formations. Not a bad tradeoff (no view). The atlas (?) campground was closed, it's really just around the corner. It has fewer views, no hookups, and the main portion is perhaps a tad denser. There are a few spots at the periphery that have incredible privacy, though. The gift shop was open (now run by the state) and we enjoyed sunrise and sunset hikes. There are no real shops or gas within miles (18, I believe), so come prepared. Overall, highly recommended! We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a hidden gem of a park. Gorgeous views all around. No crowds unlike Las Vegas thats only an hour away has millions visiting every year. Granted not much to do here except hike, bike and relax. We were here on a week night before a holiday weekend so the park had several opens spots. No reservations taken. Has a visitor center but currently no gift shop. Weather was perfect in the mid 80's. Large open level sites with tables and shade covers. Nice walk-in camp sites for tents with tables and BBQs pits. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

This park has about a dozen sites with power and water, a few of which are handicapped accessible. It's a beautiful area, but windy and cold, which is to be expected in December. Restrooms were handy with showers also. A bit noisy with folks shouting about how high they had climbed on the nearby rocks. No cellphone service here. The Park welcoming center is easy to miss as the sign wasn't very obvious. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

Wow! What a gorgeous park. We camped in a dry camping spot nestled among the red rock. Price was $10 entrance fee plus $10 dry camping. Another $10 would give us hookups. The surroundings are the most beautiful we have seen yet. (We are full-timers.) People were very friendly and we were ready to move in for good.

$10 park entrance fee + $10 camping fee + $10 surcharge for the water and power loop = $30 a night. Sites are large and pretty level, camp sites have a shade structure, picnic table, grill, and fire ring. The whole loop is well-laid out and easy to navigate with your toad. Bathrooms and showers (pay) are clean and practically new, as is everything about this part of the campground. Can't beat the views, either. Very hot and windy when we stayed, so having power for the AC is nice. Bring everything you might need with you since any stores are a long drive away. Some good hiking and biking (on-road only) here, too. Quite a few bees here, too, when we stayed. And they are thirsty. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is one of Nevada's "hidden" gems. Superb doesn't do it justice. The Atlatl site (main campground) has 3 distinct areas: RV with water plus 30 and 50 amp electric, RV/tent with water only and tent only with common area water. If you're a Nevada Senior, get a Nevada State Park Senior Pass ($15 cost and good for 12 months) and wave the park fee of $20. That's right: it's only $10 a night!

Great park with a view in every direction. The $30 fee includes the entrance and camping fee for power. Power is a very good idea: when we were here it was hot and very windy, so A/C was nice. As others mentioned, the sites are not all level and some effort may be required to level your unit. Would definitely stay again. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Travel Trailer.

There are two campgrounds in this park. One is Arch Rock Campground: the sites are smaller, it has no hookups except for water and there are restrooms are located there. The other campground is called Ataltl Rock: the spaces are bigger and wider, there are gazebos, tables and fire pits at the sites. One area has electric hookups with 20, 30 and 50 amp service and water with threaded faucets. The rest of the campsites just have water, tables, gazebos and fire pits. The showers are nice, with plenty of hot water and good pressure: they cost 25 cents for five minutes. There is double dump station with fresh water located at the entrance to Ataltl Rock. This park is the oldest in the state: 75 years. It's a really pretty park. There one hwy that runs through the park SR169, it is narrow and winding in spots. There are places to pull off and park so you can take pictures and enjoy the view. The visitor center is small and informative: it has a help desk, books and stuff to buy and a lot of good exhibits. Except for the vending machines in the visitor center, there is no fuel, food or supplies in the park. If there is a need for those, you have to go to I-15 exit 75, 14 miles to the west, or you could to Overton, Nevada, 14 miles to the east. The place was quiet at night. The weather was great, the days were comfortable and the nights were cool. In the summer time, it will be very HOT. We camped during the week. On weekends and holidays, being close to Las Vegas, NV (45 miles), the campsites will fill up quick. No reservation are accepted and the park does not allow saving of sites. It is a pretty park and we enjoyed it a lot, we will be back. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.
