Lake Mead, Nevada

Boating, camping and fishing.

Considered a boating recreation paradise on the Colorado River, Lake Mead is the Las Vegas playground for those who enjoy watersport activities. Over 160,000 surface-acres and 550 miles of shoreline fulfill the dreams of boating, water skiing and fishing enthusiasts. Several marinas provide services to the boating public and offer rental boats including canoes, kayaks, ski boats, fishing boats and pontoon boats. Many of the public areas allow access to the shore for those wishing to fish from the bank. Nevada visitors have several options for accessing Lake Mead. Highway 147 out of Las Vegas travels to Stewart's Point, Echo Bay and Callville Bay. There is also a turnoff onto Lakeshore Blvd for access to Lake Mead Marina. Excellent boat launch ramps are open to the public ate all these access points. Fishing enthusiasts can pursue bass, catfish, crappie, trout, sunfish and striped bass. The extreme upper end of the lake is the Colorado River flowing out of the lower end of the Grand Canyon. Spectacular views and good fishing await those willing to make the long boat ride.
