NOTICE TO MARINERS, RAMP CLOSURE

BOULDER CITY, Nevada – One of Echo Bay’s two launch ramps on Lake Mead has been temporarily closed due to low water. The main launch ramp was closed May 16. The low-water launch ramp remains open.

The developed area, which is a popular location for visitors from Utah, includes land-based fuel, a store, campgrounds, RV parking and a fish cleaning station. All of these services are still open.

The current elevation of Lake Mead is 1,091.55 feet. Water elevations are expected to decline another 10 feet over the next couple of months.
