Lake Mead, one of the largest reservoirs in the United States, lies just east of Las Vegas in southeastern Nevada. Numerous coves with sandy beaches surround the lake. At Las Vegas Boat Harbor, rent power boats, pontoon boats, and water sport equipment for water skiing and wakeboarding. For a slower pace, Lake Mead Marina rents kayaks and stand-up paddleboards. Fish from the shore, from fishing piers, or from your boat for rainbow trout, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, catfish, and sunfish. Don't miss exploring the scenic Black Canyon National Water Trail, which features spectacular rugged cliffs, caves, hot springs, and observation of wildlife such as desert bighorn sheep.
