|Considered a boaters paradise, Lake Mead is a favorite because of its clear and generally calm waters. With 550 plus square miles when the water level is at about 1160 FASL, Lake Mead has countless coves, private beaches, really great scenery and everything that would make a boating trip fun. Boating, camping and personal watercraft (PWC) are allowed on over 95% of Lake Mead
Lake Mead gets as many non-Las Vegas visitors as it does people coming out here for the weekend. On holiday weekends such as the 4th of July, Memorial Day and Labor Day, Lake Mead is crowded with boats of all kinds.
There are several things which boaters need to know. Among these are the requirements by both Federal and State agencies and where to launch your boats.
Park Service regulations are basically the same as at any other park. The difference here is there are two states involved because the border between Arizona and Nevada run through Lake Mead.
