“Accessible for large rigs”

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 entrance of crawdad cove road and drop it at the dumpsters that are located just as you turn off the paved road in order to scout the road for a spot.

The road can accomodate most any length rig and is relatively flat with some tight curves. We had no problem pulling in our 40ft. 5th wheel.

Smaller vehicles/campers can get almost down to the waterfront. Larger rigs will have to stay back on higher ground about 100 yards from the water.

Dry camping only, but potable water and sewer is located at Callville campground, only a few miles down the Northshore dr (10 mins drive). Trash dumpsters are located at the entrance to Crawdad Cove road.

Good cell coverage on both AT&T and T-Mobile.
