  • We have the National Park pass, so usually visit the park locations when we can. The visitor’s center is very informative and the lake is beautiful, but the water level is very low.

  • Lake Mead is a beautiful location. The lake is usually very busy with activity. I have been there many times in the past. The lake is especially great for water sport recreation. This is a great place to enjoy the outdoor scenery and wildlife. I recommend stopping by if your passing through.
  • Beautiful lake and beach scenery. The surroundings are quiet and peaceful, which makes you feel tranquil and serene. Between the shore and the inland edge of the dune field, sand alternates with the vegetated ground. Under the warm and bright sunshine, seen from a very high and faraway place, rising layers of mountain peaks make a magnificent scene. It is also a great place for hiking, fishing, camping, or just having a rest for fun.
