Directory of Concessioners
The National Park Service will provide, through the use of concessions, those commercial facilities and services within the parks necessary for visitors' use and enjoyment. Concession development will be limited to that necessary and appropriate for public use and enjoyment of the parks and be consistent, to the highest degree possible, with their preservation and conservation.
When the National Park Service was established in 1916, a provision granting the privilege for the use of land for visitor accommodations was included. The National Park Service Concession Management Improvement Act of 1998 (Public Law 105-391) articulates comprehensive legislative direction with respect to the management of the concessions program by the National Park Service. Concession operations throughout the national park system are subject to the provisions of the above legislation and to NPS regulations governing concession contracts and permits (36 CFR 51), NPS Concessions Management Guideline (NPS-48) and 2001 NPS Management Policies - Chapter 10: Commercial Visitor Services. For more information, visit http://concessions.nps.gov/
Note:Where you see the term Trailer Village, the resort should be contacted for reservations and information of availability. Where you see the term NPS Campground, reservations are not taken (they are on a first come, first served basis).
If you are interested in any of the resorts listed above, please contact the resort itself. They will be able to quote you their prices and give you more details on their services. You may also write to them for brochures.
All of the concessioners are within Lake Mead National Recreation Area, either on Lake Mead or Lake Mohave.
