Lake Mead Information

Lake Mead National Recreation Area offers huge lakes for boaters, swimmers, and fishermen while its desert rewards hikers, photographers, and sightseers.

Lake Mead National Recreation Area offers a wealth of things to do and places to go year-round. Its huge lakes cater to boaters, swimmers, sunbathers, and fishermen while its desert rewards hikers, wildlife photographers, and roadside sightseers. Three of America's four desert ecosystems - the Mojave, the Great Basin, and the Sonoran Deserts - meet in Lake Mead. As a result, this seemingly barren area contains a surprising variety of plants and animals, some of which may be found nowhere else in the world.
