“Services in Boulder City, NV”
Lake Mead NRA offers year-round recreational opportunities for boating, fishing, hiking, photography, picnicking and sightseeing. It is also home to thousands of desert plants and animals, adapted to survive where rain is scarce and temperatures can soar.
Don't go in July. Temperatures reached 112 degrees and did not drop during the night. Ended up packing up our tent and finding a hotel. Other than the heat, beautiful lake.
So, after spending a few days in Las Vegas, you'll absolutely want an escape. Lake Mead is a great getaway. I recommend hitting up the Hoover Dam and then Lake Mead. There are rangers who work at the park who are super friendly, and they'll help you plot out your hiking route. You can actually hike to the Hoover Dam, which is pretty rad. Warning, in the summer temperatures can reach up to 120 degrees. So for sure bring plenty of water, sunblock, etc.
