$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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Valley of Fire is a very nice, off the beaten path park. The place is clean, and when a campground is available the showers, and restroom are the cleanest you will ever find. Most of the park staff are very friendly, and knowledgeable. One of the perks I like about this park is you get meet folks from other countries. Give it a try, and you will return again.

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.

This state park is located about fifty miles north from Las Vegas, so it is a very popular spot for day trips and campers. There are two campgrounds in the park right near each other - Atlatl Rock and Arch Rock. Atlatl has some electric sites, water and hot showers and fills up first and early; then later on mid-day Arch Rock campground fills up. We got there around 10 in the morning and found a spot in Atlatl. So many RV’s drove around looking for spots late in the afternoon and this was only a Thursday. Many rental RV’s with tourists from overseas. There were some electric sites open, but we chose to dry camp because the temperature was only around 75 degrees and our site was more private. The sandstone red rock formations are stunning. The host was very helpful and it is a self check-in station. We had to pay $10 to get into the park. When you self register for the campsite: if you put your gate receipt in the envelope it was another $10 for dry camping and $20 for electric. If you don’t include the receipt dry camping is $20 and electric $30. One can hike in the campground and the park itself has a visitor center. There is a variety of places to hike and pullouts for scenic views. Everyone has always raved about this state park and I can see why. It is beautiful! I wish that NV would release the handicapped sites at the end of the day so all those wanting to camp here could use them. Also, they should put out a campground full sign so that campers are not going through the campground late in the evening thinking there are sites available. The sign should be at the entrance gates so you do not have to drive in to find out. Another interesting point, it seems they only collect the fee into the park at the west gate, so if you come in and leave by the east gate you don’t have to pay. If you can’t find a camping spot there is also a great BLM spot right on a cliff just north of the east gate heading to Overton Beach. There were about 30 RV’s there when we drove by in the morning. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

Camping among the Red Rocks is a breathtaking experience. For a desert campground it is a 10 even though there are no sewer connections in individual campsites. Another drawback and the reason for my 8 rating is that the sites are level side to side, but not front to back. Cell service is non existent except in certain areas of the Park (That can be a good thing). You're 15 miles from a grocery store in Overton, NV. The park has many easy hiking trails. Each site has a shade shelter covering the provided table, a fire ring and charcoal grill. 50 amp service is available. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The most magical and unforgettable campground you will ever stay in. Plan on at least two nights; there's a lot to see here. Sites are very spacious but far from level; you will need 8 to 12 inches' worth of blocks for most of them. If not for that I would rate this a ten. We will not only stay here again, we go out of our way to make this park part of our itinerary anytime we're going to be within a hundred miles of this place.

This is a very unique campground, set amongst red rock formations in a desert wilderness. Water, 50 amps, but no sewer. Road and pad are gravel so dusty, but not all the pads are level. Pull throughs with good big rig access. Very quiet with plenty of space and privacy around the RV, covered picnic table, barbecue and fire ring but no shade trees. The views of the red rocks from our RV are breathtaking. Bathrooms are old and need a good clean. No Wi-Fi but cell is good. Overton is about 18 miles away, there is nothing there, so stock up with groceries before you arrive. There is lots to see and do in this spectacular area. We would stay here again. The dump station was out of order, and extremely difficult to access from the Atlatl site exit in a big rig, so we were unable to dump before we left. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

As usual, one of the nicest State Park campgrounds with hookups I've seen. Sites are incredible - large, level, clean, great hookups, and unreal views. We were here in the heat of summer, so there were only 4 other rigs in the campground with us. You will not be disappointed! We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

Don't miss this gem of a park, on the north shore of Lake Mead. Breathtaking red rock formations surround the campgrounds. For hookups, use the Atlatl camp, not Arch Rock. For a primitive camp in a smaller RV (say 24' or less) the Arch Rock camp is memorable. The $30 rate is for Atlatl, with water and power. Without the hookup, the rate is $20 per night. No TV, no wifi, but natural beauty by the cubic mile. Definitely will visit again. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Travel Trailer.
