Lower Colorado Basin
Hoover Dam has hike-in hot springs? You betcha.
Lake Mead is a man-made lake that lies on the Colorado River, 25 miles from the Las Vegas Strip, in the states of Nevada and Arizona. It is the largest reservoir in the United States in terms of water capacity. Formed by the Hoover Dam on September 30, 1935, the reservoir serves water to the states of Arizona, California, and Nevada, as well as some of Mexico, providing sustenance to nearly 20 million people and large areas of farmland.
Lake Mohave is quieter, water is cleaner; features an undeveloped shoreline; off road trails and primitive camping in coves. Bring your own firewood, as there is no forest left in this desert.
