Make a Splash
There are many places to swim in the bright blue waters of Lake Mead and Lake Mohave.
Before visiting a beach, please check to see what is allowed in that area. Paddlecraft (canoes, kayaks, paddleboards) and rafts with oars are considered vessels. They are not allowed at beaches designated for swimming only.
Lake Mead National Recreation Area prohibits the use of inflatable and non-inflatable devices used for recreating in pools and commonly referred to as “pool toys.” This prohibition includes small pool toys such as inflatable armbands (also known as water wings), beach balls and pool noodles. The use of water-based recreation items used for attaching to or towing behind a vessel are not included in this prohibition. Additionally, inflatable kayaks, paddle boards, kite boards and float tubes which fall under the United States Coast Guard definition of a vessel are not included in this prohibition.
