10 Parks near Lake Mead Recreational Area, Arizona
Jun 2016 - $34.00
We paid the weekly rate of $34/night ($38 with tax) for one of the lake view sites. Normally we're fine with the cheapest sites available, but the price difference was relatively small when renting weekly. The pull-in lake view sites face north-east which was a big help for us since it was 110+ degrees during our stay in June and this angle kept the sun off our big windshield for most of the day. The lake view sites are new and quite nice... wide, level, concrete, and with a gravel car parking area next to each site. The older part of the campground is all gravel, and with much smaller sites. Most of the park is filled with mobile homes that were vacant during our stay, though a few owners came out during the weekend. It's a mile or so walk to the "special events beach" where dogs are allowed, but since it was so hot we drove our dog there each day (along a bumpy/rocky dirt road) instead of walking him. Just don't park too close to the water... there are many areas where the sand is really mud and you sink down quickly. The main beach area has a paved road and parking area but no dogs are allowed there. We did walk our dog daily through the heavily wooded adjacent no-hookup campground which was convenient given the intense heat/sun (the full hookup campground has no trees/shade). Boulder City is only a few miles away (up a 1,000+ foot hill) and has plenty of restaurants and stores. We got only 1 bar of AT&T LTE at our site but it was fast and reliable, and 3 bars of Verizon LTE which worked well (we didn't use our booster during our stay here). The campground WiFi didn't reach our site at the far end of the park. - LifeRebooted

Opted for one of the Lake View sites. The utilities are arranged so you pull straight in with a MH and back in with a 5th wheel or TT. Great views of the lake and the sites are full poured concrete with pea gravel around it. Picnic table and fire pit at each site. Significant portion of the sites are mobile homes although most were empty for our stay. Camp Host leads you to the site and will help you park. Roadways are wide enough to maneuver and the trees are kept trimmed off the road. - Good Vibes

Large pull through sites; easy to navigate roads. Park was clean and quiet and secure. Great place to stay and visit Hoover Dam, Valley of Fire State Park, and Las Vegas.
We walked down to the lake - it was a bit of a hike, but worth it. The lake with the mountains behind is beautiful!
We felt safe enough to leave the park for a few days and drive to the Grand Canyon! - Betty2016

Massive RV spaces, each was unique, spaced generously away from the next, and tenters were not to use the RV loop. Beautiful scenery. Water and electric in sites, dump station nearby and convenient. Rate includes $10 park entrance fee. In high heat, be prepared to contend with bees at the water spigot. - Xcountrypartyof5

We stayed in the electric+water area in the Atlatl campground. It is certainly a scenic area and a nice campground, and we had a pair of bighorn sheep grazing just a couple hundred feet from our motorhome one day. The gravel roads are extremely dusty... by the time we pulled into a campsite our tow car was coated in dust/dirt. Almost all the sites we looked at were fairly unlevel... blocks under the wheels and jacks were necessary. Many sites are pull-in (instead of back-in), and there were a few pull-throughs. Some had their picnic area in the back of the site, others at the side of the site. We got there pretty early (noon) on a Sunday and were the only rig in the park so we had our choice of sites... by evening about 1/3 of the sites were occupied. Most of the sites have plenty of space between them, and have lengths suitable from a small class C to a 45' motorhome towing a trailer. There were warning signs that bees like to congregate around any water source, and we saw them at our spigot (which had a slow drip). We had solid 3G Verizon, and with our booster turned on we got 4 bars of LTE. AT&T was limited to Edge connectivity with and without the booster. Unfortunately it was 110 degrees during our short stay in June so we didn't get out and explore much, but we do want to return to the area in the future for a proper visit and will gladly stay here again. - LifeRebooted

It is a first come, first serve park. We stayed at arch rock, the second RV-park. No hook-ups, beautiful spacious spaces between the red rocks. We used site 23, not quite level but very private. Bbq, fire pit and picnic table with a roof. Running water was provided.
We enjoyed the silence and the animals we have seen. At night little light pollution, so a good night sky view.
There was a central dump station with the only down side that there was no connection to flush your black water tank. And the waste bins at the campsite were scarse and quickly filled, luckily there was a large waste container at the dump station.
A better clarification of the payment system would be appreciated. If you enter the park, there is a self payment system (envelopes) and at the campsite there is one again. It would be nice if there was an explanation that you don't have to pay the park fee seperately if you camp here.
Otherwise, one of the loveliest places we have stayed! - Leo22

This is the closest RV park to the Skywalk over the Grand Canyon. The owner takes personal care of the campers. Most important, is that he has complete knowledge of the Skywalk and his "tips" are very useful.
There are full utilities at every sight and they are well thought out. Free video rentals. Propane available.
This is a no-frills park but we enjoyed it very much. - sanclem

This park is currently very full with workers on a large job nearby and this will go on for a while. That said, we were able to get a nice level site. The cabins and sites are mixed which is OK. There is lots of "wide open space" around here - great for dogs though you should keep on a leash or watch for wild critters. Proprietor was nice man. Campground seemed nice and quiet. I recommend if you can get a site. - Hungry Horse Android

Stayed nearly a month. A pet friendly park with lots of desert areas to walk your dogs. Nice quiet RV park, Mostly retired folks with boats. Spaces wide enough for truck and boats, picnic tables. Lots of empty spaces during Jan and Feb. Restrooms and showers warm and clean. Motel and restaurant closed but marina store open with limited supplies. Found Linn's grocery store in Overton, NV about twenty miles for good meats and produce. Marina dominates this resort, no public lake use area, no beach for families and children, no swim area, no fishing in Marina. Marina putting in new low water road and ramp. Lake is down some seven years now and affecting this resort. Overton Bay marina and park area closed, no water. We found shoreline fishing off Stewarts road, some five miles from Echo Bay,recommended four wheel drive. Caught a nice stripper but only one fish in many days. Boaters also not catching fish. Saw some wildlife: desert big horn sheep, birds, lizards, burros and enjoyed hiking the area. Friendly Lake Mead park Rangers. Probably camp here again, monthly rates, no discounts. - rick&carrie

We rented a RV site at this park for the entire summer from 2004-2009. We lived in California and would leave our motorhome there all hooked up and ready to go. The spaces are large, we had a 30' motorhome, a full size truck and a 26' boat and still had room for another vehicle. Campground is clean, restrooms and showers are clean. Would highly recommend it. We no longer go because we have moved too far away! But our extended family still goes & leaves their RV's there all summer! - wolffwl

OK spot for one overnight. We wanted into Valley of Fire, however, due to Easter vacation was full. Went thru alot of road construction to get there. Some trees and level sites. Not our destination, however, OK for a backup. - Sewfast

Echo Bay is alive and well as of 1/15/2014. Forever Resorts has taken over as the concessionaire from 7 Crowns, and are cleaning the place up. The National Park has a campground that is open with a full time campground host. This host and another volunteer are cleaning up the campgrounds. The restaurant, and marina are still closed. However, there is a little store, and gas station that are open. Gas is $3.95 a gallon. There are two places to launch a boat, with ample parking. Burrows, and Coyotes are in the area. It's a good, quiet place to stop over when on the road, in the area. - Patchez

Nice park run by NPS but due to economy the marina closed down and the Overton Beach marina closed down completely so there isn't much here anymore and it is pretty much out of the way. A better bet is Callville Bay about 20 miles down the road and still on the lake. Big marina there. - Lefty from LA

I didn't follow my own rule - never book an RV Park without a decent review on this website and pictures of the sites on the camp website. I was drawn in by a professional looking website and the "Seven Crown Resorts" name. This place was AWFUL!! The "resort" is 14 road miles (over an hour drive) from Hwy 167. It isn't their fault, but they should have mentioned (in 2 different phone conversations) that the road is being resurfaced. We drove over a mile in the dark on a gravel construction road. This place is in the middle of nowhere! When we finally arrived, we found the "resort" had nothing but a bathroom/shower/laundry building. There were no other facilities. We had to call from a phone on the wall to check-in at the nearby hotel. There were no site maps, etc. I drove down to the hotel and realized that Lake Mead is over a mile away. The staff at the hotel office told me that the lake had retreated because of the drought, but clearly the lake has never been anywhere near the RV park. Their website says "Our lakeside hotel and RV Park ..." but this is obviously misleading. The hotel staff gave me a poorly photocopied map of the site and showed me our site was right next to the bathrooms. I asked to be moved somewhere else and they had no idea which sites were available. At this point it was late at night and I just wanted to hookup, turn on the AC, and sleep. We parked in a different site for the night. Apparently the RV park is also where local employees live. There were some big Class A rigs in the park, I assume they had boats and were spending their time on the lake. The next morning I called the office and told them we were leaving rather than staying two nights. They agreed not to charge us for anything. - woody5

The campground was extremely clean. Did not have showers, which was a disappointment. There were water spigots available very few sites, and each tent site was raked and clean. The lake was a short drive down the road. - BeeNbop

Beautiful campground on Lake Mead. My fee reflects the America the Beautiful pass. Lots of palm trees and other vegetation, all well-tended by volunteers. Concrete sites, quite level, all with some view of the lake. Concrete picnic tables and grills. No hookups but there is another campground next door that offers them. There is a sewer dump and fresh water fill area as well as water spigots (threaded) near most sites. I would stay here again but not during allergy season. - mockturtle

We arrived the last week of June to stay for a week while exploring Hoover Dam and Las Vegas - I should have checked the weather! It's way too hot this time of year to dry camp here. Highs reach over 100F and lows won't break below 80F. We have a cat and was worried he'd get heat stroke, so moved to the concessioner campground next-door after 1st night here. In cooler weather, we would love it here! The view of the lake and surrounding vistas are incredible. Verizon LTE data coverage was excellent, which is a must for us to work online. This is on National Recreation Land so there is an entry fee good for 1-week. We have the "America the Beautiful" annual park pass, which got us in free. - Sara C.

This is actually a mobile home park which has ten empty spaces that are available for RV's. It is part of a marina on the remote Arizona shores of Lake Mead. Hookups were adequate and worked, but the sites are not level and not clean. If you're not a fisherman or don't have (or rent) a boat, there's virtually nothing to do here. It's a 26 mile drive from here to the highway with nothing between the Marina and the highway. If you come here, don't be confused by the public campground you encounter just before you reach this one at the marina. The public campground is nice, but has no hookups. If you want to drycamp, the public campground is the place to stay. The rate quoted includes tax. We will not stay here again. - Buckeye44

This was an overnight stop for us and I selected it based on other reviews - it was an excellent choice. I may be a bit biased because I feel we had the best site in the campground, A7. A long pull through with good spacing from other sites and a large picnic area. We were the highest rv site in the campground and had a little view of the water. The road down from the highway is narrow and a bit winding with some lumpy patches from the many times the water and dirt have crossed it in rainstorms. During our one night stay it rained hard all night and we wondered if we might get to stay an extra day or two because of road closure but no such luck. The roads and the sites are all paved and other than the one or two next to the restrooms, they all seemed to be nice sites. Verizon did not work, not even a blip. I suspect this might be a very warm place in the summer and is probably very popular for families. This is in a NRA so you need to pay to enter or have a park pass. Register at the marina store. - PBuds

One of my absolute favorite places to stay! Not much to do, and no recreational facilities other than boat rentals and hiking trails, but drop-dead gorgeous views. Road into the campground has been washed out a few times in flash floods, but campground itself is safe because it is high above the river. Roads in campground are paved and in very good condition, as are campsites and all facilities. Sites have a large cement pad and asphalt entrances to pad. No cell service, but free WiFi worked fine, especially with my booster. Also, I was pleased to find a washer and dryer available, which is a very nice bonus. Incredibly quiet and dark at night, which is hard to find these days. I would love to rent a boat sometime, but cannot do that alone. I am taking their raft trip from Hoover Dam next weekend. Incredible value for a full hookup site with senior pass. - judy_online

This part of Lake Mead was unknown to me at first because I was unaware that Lake Mead extended to Arizona. This little gem is right on the lake, very beautiful when the sun rises. It was VERY hot as well.
We only stayed for one night but it was great. The bathrooms are near by. If you have a boat, there's a boat landing as well. It was very dark and quiet at night, but the parking lot is well lit. Also, if you don't like bugs, bring bug spray and some Off. We didn't explore all that much, but it was fun. - Oie de Etudiant
