Arch Rock Campground Nevada

Arch Rock Overview

Arch Rock Campground is located in Valley of Fire State Park and has 29 campsites set among beautiful bright red Aztec sandstone outcroppings. Campsites are first-come first-serve and can accommodate tents, trailers and RVs. There are no hookups at this campground.

Campground amenities include drinking water, flush toilets, showers and an RV dump station. Each campsite has a table (with shade structure), fire ring and grate.

Also, the cell phone coverage at Valley of Fire State Park is spotty at best (depending on your provider). You may be able to get a signal at Mouse’s Tank Road near parking lot #3.  The  Fire Canyon/Silica Dome Overlook may also work.

Arch Rock – Valley of Fire State Park Area Recreation

Valley of Fire State Park is the oldest and largest state park in Nevada and includes 45,000 acres of spectacular geological wonders featuring bright red Aztec sandstone. Contrary to popular belief the valley is not always on fire, but rather derives its name from the red sandstone formations.

Valley of Fire State Park offers visitors the opportunity to explore historic sites & ruins, see petrified trees, hike and bike the many trails and visit the full-scale visitor center.  Photography, star gazing and wildlife viewing are also very popular activities. Valley of Fire State Park also offers a great base camp for the RiSE Festival each October.

Atlatl Rock campground is another option at Valley of Fire State Park and has 44 campsites (some with electric/water hookups).  There are also three group camping areas that can accommodate 45 campers.

  1. Maria Mejia says:

    After visiting Las Vegas we camped here for a couple of nights. Who would’ve thought that this gem of a state park was less than an hour outside of sin city! Easy hiking and walking and big pay off. So many petroglyphs and fascinating rock formations. Incredible sunsets, vast starry sky and beautiful early mornings. The facilities at Atlatl are great and the Arch rock CG spot 22 is fantastic. Go!

  2. Elaine Scott says:

    We are planning on arriving in Valley of Fire on Thursday 17th October for 2 nights. Is Arch Rock Campground still open then and, if so, when would be a good time to arrive to ensure we get a site? Thanks

    • Hi Elaine,
      Arch Rock and Atlatl campgrounds are open year round. October weekends will be popular, but arriving Thursday (Oct 17) should get you a spot. I’d plan on arriving by 11am to be safe. Have fun!

  3. Zaynea Shamma Niazi says:

    Wondering if I can reserve a space at Arch Rock online? and what is the www site? Would like to reserve for Oct 11 & 12, 2019 for a 25 ft Travel Trailer (2 guests)

  4. Gregory says:


    My friend and I are planning to drop by for a night on November 23rd. What time should we arrive by to ensure we can get a camp site? Also, what is the temperature usually like during this time of the year (Late November), during day, and night time?


    • Hi Gregory,
      Valley of Fire State Park campgrounds (Arch Rock and Atlatl Rock) are very popular/busy in November and especially on the weekends. Both campgrounds will most likely be sold out during the Thanksgiving holiday period (Nov 22 through Dec 1). I’d say your chances are very slim to snag a spot with a Saturday (Nov 23) arrival. You would have a little better chance with a Thursday (Nov 21) arrival (mid morning) if that works for you plans, and maybe you’d get lucky with a Monday (Nov 25) arrival.

      As for the weather in late November – you can expect day time high around 70 and lows in the mid 40s during the night.

  5. A. Diercks says:

    What site numbers have electric hook-ups in Arch Campground?

    Also, it was posted that sites 23-44 at Atlatl Campground have hook-ups; can you confirm these are the correct sites with hook-ups at Atlatl Campground?

  6. Sandra says:

    We are planning to arrive at Arch Rock on sunday, 5th of july. Is there any chance to get a campsite on this day ore is it normally sold out?
    What about monday 6th of july? Thanks für information!

    • HI Sandra,

      Yes, a July 5 or July 6 arrival at Arch Rock Campground (Valley of Fire State Park) should be okay to get a campsite. It’s the holiday weekend of course, but most will be leaving Sunday/July 5.

  7. Mike says:

    Can any of the campsites (23-44) with electric and water handle a 45 foot rv?

  8. ALEX says:

    How busy is the area around the end of March? We are planning a one night stay.

    • Hi Alex,
      Valley of Fire campgrounds – Arch Rock and Atlatl Rock will be busy the end of March. Usually nice weather and spring break will fill up the campgrounds quickly. Hopefully you can shoot for a mid-week stay to improve your chances.

  9. Sass says:

    We’re hoping to visit and stay for 2 nights – May 10 & 11. Is this usually a busy time? What are the costs per night for a converted Van?

    • Hi Sass,
      Early May will be popular/busy at Valley of Fire campgrounds (both Arch Rock and Atlatl Rock). However, you should find some available campsites with a Sunday (May 10) arrival.

  10. Xiaoliu Xu says:

    I will arrive at the midnight of March 11in 2020, would the campsite be available at that time? Since it’s is first come first served, I don’t know where to check the availability…

    • Hi Xiaoliu,
      There should be sites available since you’re arriving Wednesday, March 11 (midnight). Arch Rock campground has 24 hour access. You can call the park during the day (8am – 5pm) to double check to make sure they have sites though: 702 397-2088.

  11. Brittani Hardeman says:


    We plan on arriving March 14th. What is the nest time to arrive? Also, what are the rates per night?

    • Hi Brittani,
      Chances are there will not be any campsite available if you arrive on a Saturday during March at Arch Rock or Atlatl Rock campgrounds. That’s peak season (through early May) and campsites will fill up by Friday morning, and many sometimes by Thursday morning (through the weekend). If you can, I recommend arriving early Friday morning (before 9am), but even then – your chances maybe 50/50 at best. It costs $10 to enter Valley of Fire State Park. Campsites are $20 per night + $10 per night if you get a site with hookups.

    • Russell L Thompson says:

      Coming up Friday morning 3 /6/20 how’s it look for a spot or should I try going up Thursday night late

      • Camp Ranger says:

        Hi Russell,

        I’d say your chances are good with an early morning arrival on Friday, but even better if you got there Thursday night. Have fun!

  12. Lynn says:

    We plan to arrive sometime during the week of April 5, 2020. What day of arrival would give us the best chance of getting a site?
    Our trailer is 25 feet. Will it fit in any site?
    We qualify for a handicapped site. Are these set aside for only those that have handicap placards or license plates?

    • Hi Lynn,
      Your trailer will fit in most if not all Arch Rock campsites. There may be 1-2 campsites that are a little tight. Handicap designated campsites are for only those that have handicap placards or license plates. The week of April 5 will be during peak season at Valley of Fire campgrounds. Expect the campground to fill up quickly, particularly around the weekends. I’d say your best chances are arriving Tue-Thu. Best of luck and have a great time!
