 About Valley of Fire

Valley of Fire is located in the Mojave Desert Valley and is the oldest Nevada State Park. The Valley of Fire derives its name from red sandstone formations, formed from great shifting sand dunes 150 million years ago. These features, which are the centerpiece of the park’s attractions, often appear to be on fire when reflecting the sun’s rays. The area offers some of the Southwest’s most amazing scenery with vivid colors splashed on some of the oldest natural rock formations known to mankind. Because of its spectacular scenery, movies such as Transformers, 10,000 B.C. and Planet of the Apes include scenes filmed at the Valley of Fire.
