Lake Mead National Recreation Area

Lake Mead is a unit of the National Park Service. This man-made lake is the largest reservoir in the United States and is probably most famous for The Boulder Dam. This peaceful lake is nestled among two, beautiful mountain ranges, The River Mountains and the Muddy Mountains. These create a gorgeous backdrop for this beautiful body of water. Come on out and enjoy all that Lake Mead has to offer!

Fees: Lake Mead National Recreation Area is a fee area. Contrary to what it might feel like as you pay to enter the park, the fees don't even begin to cover the costs associated with running a park the size of LMNRA. Additionally, since it is a recreation area, it requires the safety resources of a small town (police, fire, ambulance). Be nice to the fee people at the gate. They are just doing their job.

Lake Mead Weather: Generally summers are hot and dry and winters are chilly to mild with occasional cold spells.

Lake Mead News: The official archive of all news releases that come out of the Lake Mead Public Affairs Officer's office.

Camping:Camping conditions are in desert camp grounds with trees and shrubs providing shade and privacy. RV camping available in select spots. Good Sam VIP: Insurance for RVs. Start planning your RV trip today!
Hiking: Lake Mead is situated in the eastern Mojave Desert. More than 87% of the park protects this national treasure. Enjoy long hikes across the open expanses of these colorful mountains.
Swimming: There may be plenty of places to swim but there are no official swim beaches in the park. Beaches consist of gravel and occasional murky silt build up that many people mistake for pollution. Boulder Beach is always a good bet for swimming. No lifeguards.
Boating: Here is where Lake Mead really shines. Boating conditions are great with many, many coves and nooks and crannies to explore. Lowering lake levels have caused some changes in boat ramp locations and conditions. Launch Ramp Updates and low water information. More boating information can be found on the Boating and Water Sports page.
Houseboats: rentals for houseboats fill up months in advance. Plan ahead of time! For a list of businesses that rent houseboats for use on Lake Mead go to Marinas & Boat Rentals.
Horse Back Riding: Horses and pack animals are permitted throughout the park with the expeption of picnic areas, campgrounds, etc.
