Traveled with a small group of campers and we all had very nice campsites. It's a long way from the water and store but still very enjoyable. There is little to no cell service in the area. The also is no clubhouse for groups to use. There are handicap spaces available. We camped at Lake Mead Recreational Area - Willow Beach in a Motorhome.

Beautiful spacious sites, fantastic views, staff that will bend over backwards to make your stay perfect. We loved this place! Caution: 4.4 miles of narrow 2 lane paved road takes you from 93 down into the camp. Its not bad, just be careful and go slow. Can't say enough about the staff. We moved sites, received UPS packages and interacted with all the staff finding them to be highly motivated and a total joy. Very big rig friendly with all the water, hiking and biking opportunities you can ask for! Check in at the marina store before going up the hill to the campground. We camped at Lake Mead Recreational Area - Willow Beach in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Highly recommend the long raft trip. Book at the marina and plan on about 4 hours total. Hiking trails around the Hoover Dam for all levels of ability. Check out the Clark County Museum. Its a bargain at $2 per person.

This is considerably off the main road, but very nice and quiet. The sites are large, clean, and paved. Gorgeous views on all sides. The sites closest to the river have a small view of the Colorado River, but I stayed closest to the restrooms because that is where the free Wi-Fi hookup was. No cell service at all, but I managed with WiFi. Only about 15 miles to Hoover Dam, so a good place to stay on your way through that area. We camped at Lake Mead Recreational Area - Willow Beach in a Motorhome.

This campground was quite a distance from the beach but there are some peekaboo views of the river. Park Host was friendly and helpful. TV stations come from Pacific time zone on the antenna. Park was very clean. We camped at Lake Mead Recreational Area - Willow Beach in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground, but boy was it hot! I really cannot find anything to rate this campground anything less than a 10. Great location to explore Hoover Dam and Lake Meade. We camped at Lake Mead Recreational Area - Willow Beach in a Motorhome.

This small c/g, 29 sites with full hook ups. Has only been here for six months, so the landscaping is still to be done. The drive to get to the c/g is four miles down a narrow winding canyon road, till you get to the office/store to check in. Road was paved and the concrete pad was level and long with a pull through, enough space for our RV and towed without unhooking, a picnic table, fire ring/barbecue. The bathrooms and small laundry were spotless, no Wi-Fi or cell signal, but there is an emergency phone if required. There is a small grill and patio overlooking the Colorado River open from 7am to 4pm. A very pretty spot to sit and enjoy a good variety of snacks and drinks. Lovely views from the c/g down to the marina and fishing dock on the Colorado River. It was very peaceful and quiet at night. There are no shops or restaurants close by, so it means a drive to the nearest town, Boulder City, 25 miles away, so bring plenty of groceries. We would stay here again, its a wonderful c/g and once the landscaping is in, it will be spectacular. We camped at Lake Mead Recreational Area - Willow Beach in a Motorhome.

Willow Beach Marina, located 13 miles south of Hoover Dam on Us Highway 93 and within the boundaries of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area has a new campground that opened in May of 2011. The campground has 29 RV sites and 8 dedicated tent spaces. Most of the sites are pull through and can handle the largest motor homes. The restroom building is very modern with 5 shower rooms outside of the men or women restrooms. Full hooks up are available up to 50-amp service at each site. All of the RV sites are concrete pads that looked to be level from side to side, with a slight slope from front to back for drainage. There is a table and fire ring at all sites. This new campground is on an elevated location, replacing the old campground situated in a desert wash that was destroyed over 20 years ago when a flash flood wiped it out. There is a convenience store at the Marina with a good selection of items. A small grill serves a simple fare for Breakfast and Lunch. 87 and 91 Octane Gasoline is available at a 50 cent per gallon premium over Las Vegas prices (Aug 2011). Boat, PWC and Patio Boat rentals are available for cruising the Colorado River. The Marina and Campground are operated under contract to the NPS. Reservations can be made by calling the listed telephone number. I did not stay at this campground, but plan to in the future. As new campground I gave it a 10. In giving this rating you need to remember that the scenery is barren, but the red sandstone cliffs, surrounding mountains and the Colorado River are breathtaking in their own right. With the campground so new, the Park Service is waiting for temperatures to drop in Sept of 2011 before they put the landscaping in. We camped at Lake Mead Recreational Area - Willow Beach in a Travel Trailer.
