This is free camping in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area on the Colorado River just as it becomes Lake Mead for a while. There are at least 3 different camping zones on this side of Lake Mead. Our site is in Willow Tree and it is on the North end of the lake. We have a spot right on the water with a little cove. No one else here. Great stars, very dark and quiet. No facilities. Pack it in, Pack it out. Fire rings, but bring your own wood. Mosquitoes are the worst I have seen. We came in at dusk and drove through clouds of them. We got lucky at camp there was a nice breeze keeping them reasonable and same in the morning. Beware if there is no wind. Signs coming in say 4x4 required for the roads. We are here during the dry season and never used our 4x4, but I can see how if it rains you may need it. Due to the signs I don't know what a ranger would do if you came out in 2wd. A swimming dogs paradise. We had no cell service.

Six Mile Cove

Lovely little cove but the six miles of washboard road and limited cell signal means we won't be back
