We hired a Mustang convertible and had a drive up to see the rock formations.
Great roads to the canyon, the red rocks stood out from the plain desert colours. The heritage centre was a good venue for the history, could have benefited from a cafeteria.

This was our 1st stop on a long Utah/Arizona trip. Really cool spot. Glad we came through. Think we did White Dome trail. Sandy but nice. Red rocks. Must be crazy hot in the summer.

About an hour drive away, and maybe up to two hours to drive though it assuming you stop in a few areas, so it makes for a nice trip to do one morning if in Vegas. Drove over to Hoover Dam after and that was completely mobbed and chaotic, with cars creeping along and nowhere to park, so by comparison this was a much more enjoyable experience. There is a small visitor center and bathrooms throughout the park as well. You'll get some great photos at a place like this.

Any one who did not rate this very good or excellent must have visited a different park!

This state park is a hour drive north of Las Vegas. The rock formations are absolutely fabulous!! the colors are a stunning array of browns, red brown and black. Many rocks are eroded to form caves and other smaller holes for birds to nest. The sand is a very smooth, fine reddish sand.

The roads are paved and well maintained. There are lots of dispersed parking areas and pull offs, providing easy access to the many trails and opportunities to climb on the rocks. There are several covered picnic areas with tables, grills, potable water and pit toilets. There is a campground with several full hook up sites, but it was full the Monday we were there.

This is a beautiful, must see park with plenty to keep you busy.
