Reviews for Valley of Fire State Park

By user-491011 on 2017-10-23. Stayed 2013-03-12 to 2013-03-14

This Nevada State Park is definitely worth checking out. There is a $10 daily entry fee / $10 camping fee/ $10 water&electric for a limited number of sites. ($30 total for hookups each day) A dump site is available. Bathrooms were very clean. Showers cost $0.25 for five minutes. The park has great rock formations, with some fun hikes, both short and longer. Even if you don't hike, it is worth the drive and overnight. There is an informative visitor's center. If you have a dog and tag team your entrance to the visitor's center, there is a shaded area in the back of the building. Leashed dogs are allowed on the hiking trails. Stayed here in a 25' motor home, 30 amp electrical. We plan to visit again.

Incredibly gorgeous campgrounds. First come, first served, no reservations. There are two, Arch Rock & Atlatl. There are 72 sites. There are some E/W sites in Atlatl but I'm not sure how many. Some of the sites are really nestled back into the rocks. If you need cell phone service, AT&T did not work for me in most of the CG. And T-Mobile was a no-go as well. Friends reported Verizon did work. If the campgrounds are full as happens often, there is good boondocking approx 3 miles north of the intersection of Valley of Fire Rd & Northshore Drive. It's a huge mesa on the right as you're heading north to Overton and is referred to as "Poverty Flats" or "Snowbird Mesa". Great AT&T service there.

Two parks. Stayed in Atlatl. Not many sites with hookups but water at all I believe. People drive thru like idiots kicking up huge clouds of dust. Just hope wind favors you. Spartan bathrooms & showers but beats dry camping. Other campground favors smaller rigs & has tight turns thru rocks. You get charged $10.00 to enter with little to no help from staff if campsites are available, however if you do find a site fee is applied towards camp fees. Poor effort on states part with regards to availability of camping. Minimal effort to make sites level or rv rig friendly. So much more could be done to make campgrounds worthy of the rest of the experience. Rest of park is awesome with some nice short hikes. NOTE - closest store etc. is 30 minutes or so away so come prepared.

| Great bouldering

Kids loved bouldering here. We couldn't find a map, so I've uploaded one here. Basically, middle of the park has RV at the Atlas site and arch site is camping with water spigots.

Most of the rv sites are nice and wide. But the water and power hookups are on the wrong side, only a few on the correct side for backing in a trailer or 5th. Make sure to bring an extention 30amp cord and at least 70 feet of hose to give yourself the most flexibility. views from the campground are amazing and kids go crazy for the bouldering. best day hikes would be White Domes and Mouse Tank if you only have time for two.

| Great Park, Needs Updating, Attitude Adjustment

Many roads are in need of repaving, all campsites are first-come. Calling park is a waste of time. They don't know which sites are occupied or if they are full and seemingly don't care. All the park staff seem to have a negative attitude. Beautiful vistas and great hikes to the Fire Wave, White Dones, Rainbow Vista and Elephant Rock. All relatively easy. Day visitors from Las Vegas start showing up around 10 am, swamping the park. WiFi is spotty and costs money. Desert bighorn sheep were spotted in the campground!!

Just finished a 14 day stay at the Atlatl campground in the RV section. The rate is $30/day unless you have a Senior Citizen or Disabled State Park Pass. If you have either of these passes, your rate for the RV section is $10/day. If you stay in the regular section your rate is $0! Park is first come, first served. Don t even think of arriving on a Friday afternoon and expect to find a spot. All sites are gravel. Our rig with trailer is 60 feet long. There are several sites we fit into. Some sites are very sloped and almost impossible to get level. We loved our stay there and $140/14 days with water and 50amp service is a real bargain. This is the ONLY campground that can take big rigs. Do not even think of entering the Arch Rock campground if your rig is longer than 25 feet. You will regret it. Arch Rock has no hookups. There is an RV dump station and potable water/trash dumpsters right outside the campground.
