It is a first come, first serve park. We stayed at arch rock, the second RV-park. No hook-ups, beautiful spacious spaces between the red rocks. We used site 23, not quite level but very private. Bbq, fire pit and picnic table with a roof. Running water was provided.

We enjoyed the silence and the animals we have seen. At night little light pollution, so a good night sky view.

There was a central dump station with the only down side that there was no connection to flush your black water tank. And the waste bins at the campsite were scarse and quickly filled, luckily there was a large waste container at the dump station.

A better clarification of the payment system would be appreciated. If you enter the park, there is a self payment system (envelopes) and at the campsite there is one again. It would be nice if there was an explanation that you don't have to pay the park fee seperately if you camp here.

Otherwise, one of the loveliest places we have stayed! We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

When you exit the campground the scenic loop is just to your left.

This is first come first serve. There are 20 W/E sites in Atlatl campground (where we stayed), and they don't last. After reading other reviews, we heeded the advise and arrived by 10 am on Tuesday to get a spot. While spring is very pretty it is also very busy, so be prepared. Both campgrounds are beautiful and the sites are nicely spaced gravel. The restrooms and showers are older, but very useable. We loved this place and plan to return. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The campsites have spectacular scenery. Spacious sites with canopied picnic table, BBQ and fire ring. Our site had water and electricity. Dump station as you leave the campground. Bathhouse has individual showers and toilets. The campground was very clean but the bathhouses were a little shabby. First come first serve, so finding a site can be challenging. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

Not my first visit here and probably won't be my last. Scenery is so gorgeous it can't really be described. Two campgrounds, one, Atlatl Rock, has some hookups. I stayed in Arch Rock, no hookups, but beautiful campsites. As someone has already stated, sites 15 to 29, which branch off the main loop, are the choicest, i.e., the most private and scenic but all these were full so I got site 14, also very nice. The entry fee/camping fee process is a bit confusing and should probably be clarified so that campers can pay both entry and camping fees at one station. Didn't use the toilet facilities. There are water spigots scattered throughout the campground as well as numerous garbage cans. There is also a fresh water fill at the dump station. No Verizon signal.

Lots of beautiful hikes and scenic roads. Truly one of a kind. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful rock formations and some really nice and easy trails that are so visually interesting. I entered the price of $30; this is for electric sites. If you take a site without services it's $20. Outside the main campground they have some really cool spots that are more isolated. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

This place is awesome!!! You have to pay $20/day and the park has envelopes for you to place your money in to pay. "Self-pay". Not many people are honest, and may not pay at all. We did of course. It's very peaceful at night, when you wake up in the morning, the views are beautiful!! We only stayed for one day, but it was well worth it! There's a dump site as well as you are leaving the park. Returning for sure! We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a first come first served park. We arrived about 3:30PM on a Tuesday (late May) and had several water/electric sites to choose from. The views from this campground are absolutely spectacular. Unisex bathrooms were very clean, individual rooms for toilet, individual room for shower. We did not have any phone service with Verizon and we did not get any OTA TV stations. Water and electric were good and we appreciated that the handicap space we had was concrete. Picnic tables are covered and in very good condition. Stop at the visitor's center and find out where the water/electric sites are and what the procedure is. Then drive through that area once before picking out your spot. There are a couple of nice handicap sites near the restrooms. You can pay your park fee and camping fee all at once and they do take checks. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Travel Trailer.

$30 per night was for a level gravel site with 50 amp electric, water, covered picnic table, fire ring, and pedestal BBQ grill. This campground is located in the middle of beautiful red sandstone formations in the Mojave desert. Closest town is Overton where necessities are available. There are 42,000 acres of parkland allowing for plenty of outdoor activities including hiking, rock climbing, and picnicking. AT&T and Verizon service was very weak until we used out booster, which increased bars of reception to acceptable levels. There were no OTA TV stations but many radio stations came in. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park and a well laid out campground with some very large, level sites, and others nestled into the rock formations. We arrived about noon and our pick of the available spots. Lots of rocks to climb and a petroglyph on Atlatl Rock. It deserved a longer stay so we will be back. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

Prepare your eyes for a feast. The bluest of blue skies and wind sculpted red rock in formations that continuously surprise. Seriously, this is a must stop and must see. Our rate reflects dry camping with a water spigot nearby. Sites with electric and water are $30. There is pump out and water fill at campground entrance. We dry camped in the Arch Rock campground, which offers vastly more seclusion and privacy. Site numbers that are the best in this campground are #15 - 29, which is a spur off the main loop. Arrive early in the day, this area is very popular. We plan to return We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was a gem of a campground in a beautiful spot...a little "mini" Utah with red rock, vistas, hiking, etc. There were two campgrounds, one with hook ups and one dry camping. There was a dump station nearby. I would suggest getting there early for an electrical spot. The payment method is unusual, you pay $10 to enter the park and the site with electricity is $30 but if you put your receipt for entry in the envelope with your check it is only $10...so $20 for an electrical site. A person could probably "do" this site/area in one full day. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in Atlatl's water/electric sites. Free dump station at entrance. Arrived Monday at 1pm with plenty of sites to choose from. As the week progressed, sites were harder to come by because the campground filled up by nightfall. By the time we left on Thursday, people were circling looking for people who were packing up so they could claim their spot. Great location – kind of expensive. Showers by the check in kiosk are warm and free. Other showers are 25 cents for 5+ minutes with uneven shower spray. Arch Rock sites have spring-loaded water spigots generously spread throughout campground. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed two nights at the Arch Rock Campground. This campground does not have water or sewer hookups but it did have a water spigot close to our site. This is fine as we like the " camping" atmosphere. Our campsite was secluded as it was nestled in among the red rocks. We spent our days hiking the trails. The park is pet friendly. Dogs are allowed on the trails as long as they are on a leash. The Visitor's Center had information on the area's plants, wildlife, Native Americans, and geology. A nice gift shop, too. Just outside the campground is a water and dump station. It was easy to get to when checking in or out. Both the campgrounds are on a first come first serve basis. Recommend getting there in the early afternoon (right after check out time) to ensure a campsite. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I have been to this park 4 times in the past two years, it is one of my all time favorite places to visit. Recently, they have added several sites for RV's with good electric and water hook-ups. Beautiful level sites with plenty of room and tastefully done without ruining the ambiance of camping right in the beautiful Red Rock. The views around the campground are to die for. Get there early for a hook-up site. It fills up especially on the weekends. There is a dump station near the entrance to the campground area. I also was able to get 3G service on my Verizon Hotspot, so able to get email, slow but it worked. No TV reception, but who needs that with the views. Don't miss this campground, one of the best in the country! I will return many, many times. The hiking and photography around here is amazing. Tent sites are $10.00 per night and RV with electric and water are an additional $10.00 per night. Very reasonable for such a beautiful location. Great sun shelter and picnic table and fire ring at each site. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Two beautiful campgrounds, both set among towering red rock formations. Arch Rock is dry camping only, with pit toilets and unthreaded water faucets scattered throughout the widely-spaced, mostly-level sites, some of which can accommodate big rigs. Atlatl Rock has both dry sites and water-electric sites, flush toilets and showers. Campsites are $20 for dry, $30 for water-electric, and include admission to park ($10 fee if not camping) which has many scenic rock formations to tour. Some areas of the park have weak, but generally adequate, cell phone reception for both AT&T and Verizon, but reception at either of the two campgrounds is generally non-existent. A very pretty state park, and well worth a day or two of exploring. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.
