Boulder Beach Campground, Lake Mead

STARS: 4 out of 5

Boulder Beach Campground, Lake Mead, NV: GPS 36.0366° N, 114.8020° W

This campground is directly adjacent to the Lake Mead RV Village. While we didn't love the RV Village, we did really enjoy the Boulder Beach Campground. It also has a beautiful view of the lake, and the sites are mostly surrounded by trees. The best sites for a bigger rig, in our opinion, and in this order are 77, 57 (our site) and 55. The advantage to 57 is that it is a large pull-through. 77 is an easy back-in however, and is closest to the water, more private, and a large site. We pulled in right after someone had taken that spot. :(

There are flush toilets, but no showers. There is potable water every few sites. It has an RV dump. So while there are no hook ups, it is a nice set up.

Most of the pull-throughs are higher up on the hill of the campground. I must note that it is crowded there, while down in our loop (the closest to the water) it is quite empty. So if you have a smaller rig or can get lucky enough to get one of the spots I mentioned, you should definitely stay down there.

There is a 20-something mile beautifully paged bike/walking path adjacent to this campground, too. You are also close to the Hoover Dam and right near the Visitor Centers.
