Fodor's Review

People come to Lake Mead primarily for boating, but a few areas of shoreline are cultivated for swimming: Boulder Beach is the closest to Las Vegas, only a mile or so from the visitor center. You can get information about Lake Mead's history, ecology, recreational opportunities, and the accommodations available along its shore at the Alan Bible Visitor Center.
