The Road From Lake Mead Recreation Area To Valley Of Fire State Park

The last few days we have spent in a wonderful Nevada state park, the Valley of Fire, near Overton, Nevada.

The road into Valley of Fire is beautiful. We left Kingman, AZ and headed north to the Hoover Dam, then turned right (heading north) and skirted Lake Mead. Wonderful views all over.

We had great weather the entire time. Blue skies and sunshine.

Once you pass the Valley of Fire State Park entrance sign, you really start seeing why it’s called “Valley of Fire”.

Valley of Fire State Park has a wonderful campground.  50amp power and water, with large spots for even our big rig.

The road that leads into the campground has some great views.  But nothing prepared us for the actual campground.

The campground is surrounded by the red rocks that make up the Valley of Fire.  I really don’t think there would be a bad site to be had.  We had a great site!  A pull-thru with no one really in front or next to us.  Completely quiet and dark at night.  A must if you are in this area.
