Lake Mead National Recreation Area

Lake Mead National Recreation Area in nearby Boulder City offers numerous things to do and places to go year-round. The lakes provide great boating, swimming, sunbathing, and fishing. The surrounding desert provides beautiful views for photographers and roadside sightseers. The seemingly endless number of trails provide hours of pleasure for hikers.

Three of America's four desert ecosystems--the Mojave, the Great Basin, and the Sonoran Deserts--meet in Lake Mead NRA. The park area contains a surprising variety of plants and animals, some of which are unique to the park. The park service provides many maps on its website.
