When I saw the name “Lone Rock” on the map that the Valley of Fire visitor center gave me, I was expecting some type of “lone rock” but not what I actually saw when I arrived.
Instead of some large picturesque red rock shooting up from the ground by itself, I found a single large red boulder… basically in the parking area.

Lone Rock Picnic Area
Depending on the time of day, the Lone Rock provides shade for the single picnic table in the area.
Also available for day use is a grill and trash can for picnickers to use while they enjoy a scenic break from visiting the different areas in the Valley of Fire.
Petroglyphs at Lone Rock
Along the western cliffs, there are petroglyphs but I was by myself and the day was heating up so I didn’t climb up to find them but I will the next time I visit and update the post with images.
How to Get to Lone Rock
Lone Rock is located on the western side of the park before The Cabins area.
As soon as you turn down the road, it is located immediately on the left.
