Educational groups are encouraged to use the park for their own programs. Because trails are used for ranger-led education programs, we ask that you contact us at LAKE_education@nps.gov to schedule the use of trails to minimize conflicts. We also strongly suggest to check the weather prior to your field trip to the park, as it is not recommend to hike in the warmer months of the year.
Entrance-fee waivers are available for educational visits but not for recreational visits. Please fill out the Education Fee Wavier (click here) and submit it to our fee revenue office 2 to 4 weeks prior to your visit. Please note that it is required to describe your class/course, the educational purpose of your trip, and submit all of the required documents.
Scheduling is done on a first-come, first-served basis. To request an ranger-led field trip please email our education office at LAKE_education@nps.gov with the following information:
- Date of requested field trip
- Age/grade level
- Number of students
- Are you looking for transportation funding
- Specific Curriculum goals/topics
- *Desired location of field trip (Lake Mead or Lake Mohave)
*Within the Lake Mead area, we serve the Clark County School District. Within the Lake Mohave area, we serve various school districts of Mohave County, Arizona. Programs are offered from mid-October through April. For further information, please email the education team at LAKE_education@nps.gov
Submitting an Education Fee Waiver is required for ranger-led field trips. It is the responsibility of the educator/organizer to complete and submit the Education Fee Waiver (click here). Once your date has been confirmed with education staff, the educator/organizer must submit your request to our fee revenue office 2 to 4 weeks prior to your visit. Please note that all ranger-led trips do not guarantee that your fees will be waived. You are still required to describe your class/course, the educational purpose of your trip, and submit all of the required documents.
