Valley of Fire Camping
There are two single-site campgrounds at the Valley of Fire State Park, Atlal Rock Campground (this article has detailed information specifically about each campsite), and Arch Rock Campground, for a combined total of 72 camping sites.
There is also an area for group camping behind the Beehives with 3 group campsites by reservation only.
You will need to bring what you need for camping as the amenities offered at the Valley of Fire Visitors Center are limited. The closest place to buy supplies will be within the town of Overton such as Lin’s Grocery, which I highly recommend getting an ice cream cone from the deli (they are weighed to determine the price!).
