The Valley of Fire was named for the magnificent 40,000 acres of bright red Aztec sandstone. It is located in the Mojave Desert approximately 55 miles Northeast of the Las Vegas Strip. You can take a day trip from Las Vegas or stay a while longer. The park is open year-round and has numerous campsites equipped with shaded tables, grills and water. Winters are mild with temperatures ranging from freezing to 75 degrees. Summer temperature often exceed 100 degrees and vary significantly from day to night. So try to plan your trip accordingly during milder temperature months. Most attractions do meet a short distance hiking requirement, so summer temperatures can definitely cause dehydration and heat exhaustion. Make sure you bring plenty of water with you to keep yourself hydrated.
