“Beautiful spot to enjoy nature on lake Mead”

Reviewed Oct 27, 2018

Overall Rating

I was a little unsure after reading some other reviews about this location, but we have found it to be an absolutely lovely spot. We camped right on the lake front at the end of the road. Probably not possible for a larger rig as the road is quite Sandy and steep, but perfect for us. The weather was idealic everyday. Mid 80's during th... more

“Crowds of inconsiderate campers both weekends”

Reviewed Apr 17, 2018

Overall Rating

The dirt road off Northshore Rd is called both Crawdad Cove Rd and Boxcar Cove Rd. My GPS used one name, and Google maps the other. They split after about 1/2 mile, Boxcar being the left fork and Crawdad the right. From Northshore Rd, drive 2.6 miles down the wash, then up the hill to the left. The camping area is over the top of the h... more

“Very secluded no big rv’s 4 wd road”

Reviewed Feb 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Be aware road in is not for motor homes. Some do get 5th wheels in. Scout road before you try getting into this area. Trash located at entrance. Water and dump station about 10 miles. Big rigs use Government Wash road.

“Great place if you want to be alone”

Reviewed Dec 15, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here for 14 days at the end of November and loved it. The 2+ mile road into the good sites is definitely rough. We have a 2WD truck and pull a 29ft camper and we didn't have any problem. Some of the more gravelly places made me a little nervous, but we never spun out or anything. There was 1 other camper in the area pretty mu... more

“DO NOT STAY HERE”

Reviewed Oct 29, 2017

Overall Rating

My husband and I ventured down this road after looking at reviews, with our camper. We try to scope before but have been down a few of the roads around here and stayed 1.5 weeks on govt wash. IT WAS HORRIBLE. There are no signs marked with 4x4 recommended until you are 1.5 miles down the road with no way to turn around. We got stuc... more

5 stars for the gorgeous views, but the gnats in the evening/early morning are unbearable. Thousands swarming our tent. Not over exaggerating.

“Accessible for large rigs”

Reviewed Feb 16, 2017

Overall Rating

We dropped our 5th wheel in Henderson Walmart to scout this area prior to driving in. Driving from Henderson, you will come to a park entrance booth that has a $20/ week fee/vehicle to enter the Lake Mead National Recreation area. If you have a national park pass entry is free. You can actually take a large rig (40+ ft) to the e... more
