Discover Lake Mead
Lake Mead, America's largest reservoir, was created by the construction of the Hoover Dam. With more than 750 miles of shoreline, you can enjoy a day at the beach, take a boat out and disappear for hours or nestle into a cove to try to catch a big one.
Start your day at the Lake Mead Visitor Center where rangers will help you plan your adventure.
From here, you can launch your own boat, rent one for the day or just a few hours or take a cruise to the Hoover Dam.
Located just minutes from Las Vegas, Boulder Beach stretches more than a mile along the shoreline of the Boulder Basin of Lake Mead.
Due to low water conditions at Lake Mead, the Boulder Harbor boat ramp is closed.
