So much fun. Water was perfect. Weather was awesome. Kayaked for 2 days and we can't wait to go back again. We stayed two nights at the camp ground. Could use a little shade but even so we loved the look of the place. Spartan desert! Quick short trip over to explore hoover dam made for a very nice break from all the kayaking. I would not want to be here in July it August but in October it was wonderful.

Lake Mead is gorgeous! There is a cost to get in, I believe it's $12 an adult and not sure what it is for children, but it's worth it, pay it. The drive through the park is stunning, be sure to take your camera. I left Vegas about 3:30 and timed it perfectly to get Sunset shots on the way out and back. The park ranger at the entrance gate was very knowledgeable and friendly. The roads are in good condition and are easy to drive and navigate. I highly recommend you check this out at least once on a visit to Vegas. I don't think it's something that you should do every time, but I do think you should do it once, at least.

I do enjoy boating here. My husband and I have our favorite beach spot so we like to come early. When weather permitting we do boat further out to see all the beautiful coves etc that the lake has to offer. My dog loves accompanying us and he gets great exercise running the beaches. We've seen wild burros, big name it. You can also camp along the lake shores.

I stayed at the Las Vegas Bay campground for the second time. The campground and restrooms are always clean and we'll maintained. The dump station wasn't a mess like so many others. The camp host comes by occasionally to make sure everything is good. I especially like have a camping loop that does NOT allow generators. I will be staying there again.
