Lake Mead National Recreational Area, Arizona

Although the National Recreation Area takes its name from Lake Mead, it also includes some of the Colorado River and Lake Mohave within its impressive 1.5 million acres.

Lake Mohave, like Lake Mead, is an artificial lake restrained by the Davis Dam.

Many outdoor pursuits are available at the Recreational Area including, of course, water sports, fishing and camping.
