Experience vibrant rock structures like no other at Valley of Fire State Park and see remnants of prehistoric petrified wood.

Just outside of the lively city of Las Vegas, Nevada, you will discover Valley of Fire State Park. The magnificent landscapes and geological structures here that have formed over many millions of years have awarded this park the appropriate name of Valley of Fire since the patterns and coloration of the rock faces are so brilliantly red and orange. There are naturally occurring arches all around the park which make for incredible photo ops against the bright blue sky. Until space travel is available to the general public, this park is likely the closest experience you can possibly get to feeling like you landed on Mars. 

There is a visitor center at the park that offers in-depth information all about the ecology and geology of the land here. There are also over 70 campsites that are available on a first-come first-served basis. Valley of Fire is a perfect spot to stargaze and to get some practice within the realm of astrophotography. Many visitors love to come to Valley of Fire to witness the petrified wood that is within the park, which is wood that has been in the elements long enough to become fossilized. The fossilized wood is assumed to be from ancient pines that grew here around 150 million years ago. Valley of Fire is truly one of Nevada’s best natural wonders.
