Yes, we have. It's a beautiful park to explore. The best campground for your 40' is the one with electric hookups within the state park. It has large, well-spaced sites. You'll like it! Be aware that it can get very hot there depending on the time you go so you'll appreciate the electric.

About how much time should you plan for visiting this park in order to take in the sites?

While we haven't camped there, we have visited Valley of Fire and as twogypsies said, it is a beautiful park. However, you should be aware that it is quite removed from most of the local attractions. It's some 50 miles plus outside of Vegas on the far north end of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and around 70 miles over to the Hoover Dam.

Yes, you don't want to make Valley of Fire a base for seeing Vegas. However, it's definitely worth stopping for 2-3 nights. Nice drives and hiking - just a place to hang out and relax. Enjoy the BBQ Competition. Sounds like fun!

You'll really enjoy this park. We live in Las Vegas and can say that we have been here many times on day visits. We haven't stayed overnight, but have seen the campsites. You will enjoy your stay, but at that time your A/C will be working overtime.

As others have stated it can get very hot, at the end of August you should expect 100+ temps.
