🚍 Valley of Fire State Park Drive Thru

Watch More Drive Thru Videos
One of the most interesting drives in the country is located just 50 minutes from Las Vegas. Valley of Fire State Park in Overton is Nevada's 1st State Park designated in 1935. The park covers nearly 46,000 acres of public recreation and nature preserve, and when you get there you can't help but feel like you just stepped onto the set of the movie "Martian." The state park derives its name from red sandstone formations, the Aztec Sandstone, which formed from shifting sand dunes 150 million years ago. This Drive Thru of Valley of Fire starts at the East Entrance near Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam and travels all the way through the park, with a bonus tour of the RV campgrounds (we wanted to check them out for our next trip). The highlights of this trip are the hiking trails. Valley of Fire has 11 trails making it tough to do the whole park in one stop. Trails include Elephant Rock, Balancing Rock, Mouse's Tank, Petrified Logs, Natural Arches, Fire Wave, and White Domes just to name a few. Beware of heat advisories as the park will close trails if it get too hot. We give the Valley of Fire State Park a 5 STAR review and recommend it to all RVers.

  1. An environment I'd never experienced before . . . like something outer space, Mars. The day we went, the park had issued a heat warning. Hikes were not recommended and not to be out in heat for more than 10 mins. Again, something we've never experienced before. Super cool place and we definitely will be back to explore!!
