    One of the standout features here is the security. With 24/7 surveillance, you can feel safe and secure during your visit. The park is also pet-friendly, though finding a good spot for your furry friends to stretch their legs might require a bit of creativity.

    For those looking to explore beyond the campground, the Vegas Strip is a short drive away, and Freemont Street is just a bit further. If you're in the mood for some local flavor, Bootleggers restaurant nearby serves up some amazing Italian food. And for your grocery needs, Smith's is conveniently close.

    Cottonwood Cove Campground, part of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, is a straightforward spot near Searchlight, NV. This place is all about simplicity and nature. You won't find electric hookups or showers here, but you will get drinking water, toilets, and the chance to have a campfire. Pets are welcome, and you can reserve a spot ahead of time.

    The campground has 45 sites, mostly suited for tents and smaller RVs. If you've got a big rig, you might find it a bit tight. The sites are close together, so don't expect much privacy. On the plus side, the nights are quiet, and the star-gazing is top-notch. You might even hear coyotes in the distance.

    One of the highlights is the proximity to Lake Mojave. It's just a short walk to the sandy beach, although some visitors have noted that it can be a bit littered. The marina nearby has a store for any essentials you might need, though it can be pricey.

    The campground itself could use some TLC. Some visitors have mentioned that the restrooms can be a bit dirty, and the overall maintenance isn't the best. But if you're looking for a peaceful, no-frills camping experience with easy access to the lake, Cottonwood Cove might just do the trick. Just remember to pack everything you need, as the nearest town doesn't offer much beyond gas stations and a McDonald's.
