About Lake Mead


Lake Mead, on the Arizona/Nevada border, is the largest man-made lake in the United States. Up to 8 million visitors travel yearly to this lake, which is about 30 miles east of Las Vegas. Lake Mead is located along the Colorado River and is 110 miles long. Three out of four desert ecosystems (the Great Basin, Mojave, and Sonoran Deserts) meet at Lake Mead. This region is home to thousands of plant and animal species, some of which aren't found anywhere else in the world! There is 550 miles of shoreline, but the water elevation continues to drop every year, so boaters must be cautious. Lake Mead is at its highest elevation in late Fall and early Spring.
