Valley of Fire State Park

Valley of Fire State Park has 40,000 acres of bright red Aztec sandstone outcrops nestled in gray and tan limestone. Its ancient, petrified trees and petroglyphs date back more than 2,000 years. “Minimal air and light pollution. Great clear skies! Overnight camping is best, as they now close at sundown.”
