Spend quality time with friends and family at America’s largest reservoir.

Lake Mead is located just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada, and it was created back in the 1930s when the Hoover Dam was established. At 112 miles long with 759 miles of shoreline, Lake Mead is considered the largest reservoir in the United States of America. This was the very first national recreation area and a portion of Lake Mead also crosses into Arizona. You are able to boat, fish, kayak, and swim in Lake Mead. Visitors also enjoy views of the surrounding Black Mountains while they are here. If you love hiking, feel free to explore the various trails surrounding Lake Mead.

There are seven boat ramps providing direct access to Lake Mead. Water sports and fishing are very popular pastimes. Anglers can expect to see various fish such as rainbow trout, striped bass, and catfish. Unfortunately, due to severe droughts, Lake Mead has actually not been at full capacity since 1983. However, if you want to take a camping trip to Lake Mead, they offer over a dozen campsites that can accommodate tents and RVs. Lake Mead is open 24/7 and it is the busiest during the summer. High temperatures can reach over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, so always bring plenty of water to stay hydrated during the day. If you love spending time on the water, don't hesitate to visit Lake Mead.
