Local Recreation:

There are so many things to do in the Lake Mead's National Recreation Area that it's actually to much to mention here.  But, a few fun things are:

Hoover Dam.  There is a Dam tour and an information center for visitors with some souvenirs to purchase.  There are two different tours that last approximately 45 minutes.  The generator room tour is $15 each.  The second tour is $30 and adds additional Dam areas.  While you are visiting the Dam also stop and walk on the Mike O'Callaghan and Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge.  It's a great view of Hoover Dam from the bridge.  Campbase has a short video, click here.

Bike ride or hike the paved River Mountains Loop Trail.  It's a circular 35 mile trail that loops through the recreation area passing through Boulder Beach.  It's a good one, make sure you bring the bike.  It's accessible from the Boulder Beach Campground or the Alan Bible Visitors Center.  Campbase estimates the bike path has approximately 3,000 feet of climb along the 35 mile route.  It's very strenuous at some points.

Most marinas in the recreation area on Lake Mead have boat rentals.  Fishing boats and jet skis are usually available.  Fishing boats rent for approximately $40 per hour and are a great way to get out onto the lake.  

There is casino gaming near the recreation area in Boulder City and Las Vegas.  Closer to the park is the Hoover Dam Lodge and Casino.  It's located just a mile outside the Boulder Beach entrance.  The casino also has a helicopter landing pad with tours of the Grand Canyon available.

The Mike O'Callaghan and Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge is located at Hoover Dam. It's a new bridge where pedestrians can walk out on the bridge for great views of Hoover Dam.  Best of all it's free.  There is a long set of stairs up to the bridge that may be strenuous for some.  Please see our PHOTOS tab for pictures.
