Lake Mead RV Village, located in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area offers magnificent views of beautiful Lake Mead and is an ideal base camp for the variety of recreational activities in the park
We stayed at Boulder Beach location on Lake Mead in the summer of 2012 for a brief visit. This RV park had full hookups which is always a plus when you are traveling. We utilized the laundry facility here and caught up on some computer work since they had wi-fi. It was very hot so we took the RV to the shores of Lake Mead and parked for a rock skipping contest and to cool off. The water was very warm which wasn't at all what I expected. Our visit also included Hoover Dam which was highly secured and 115 degrees that day.Our tickets included a tour inside the power plant. The elevator ride down was 70 seconds but we descended 530 feet into the Black Canyon walls. It was surprisingly cooler down below and we were happy to get out of the sun. I was amazed at the detailed design of the dam and what the workers endured to complete this structure.
