Valley of Fire State Park (VFSP) is a must see place if one has the time on a trip to Las Vegas. The scenery and the stark contrasts make a trip to VFSP unforgettable. VFSP is like Red Rock Canyon -- except on steroids. My recent trip to VFSP was only for about 3 hours and I felt like I barely scratched the surface of the park. There is just too much to look at and explore on a short day trip. In my opinion VFSP requires a full day or 2 days to really get a feel for the the place -- whether you are into hiking, photography, or just exploring.
