Lake Mead – The Largest Man-Made Lake in the U.S.!
Situated a mere 30 minutes away from the glitter of the Las Vegas strip, beautiful Lake Mead is a picturesque, natural oasis in the Nevada desert. It is connected to the Colorado River, and is the largest man-made reservoir/lake in the U.S. It features over 820 miles of shoreline and 1.5 million acres of water. Lake Mead is an impressive 489 feet deep at its deepest point, and has over 247 sq. mi. of surface area.
Lake Mead was named in honor of Elmore Mead who, from 1924 to 1936, occupied the position of Commissioner of the United States Bureau of Reclamation. It was Mead who oversaw the planning and construction of the massive Boulder Canyon Project. The project included the Hoover Dam, designed to tame that section of the Colorado River, and the resulting Lake Mead. The project involved flooding a part of the Mojave Desert, which took ten trillion gallons.
Originally named the Boulder Dam Recreation Area in 1936, it was renamed the Lake Mead National Recreation Area in 1964 by the National Park Service.
To create the dam and lake, several communities were evacuated including St. Thomas, Nevada. Today, when the water is low, ruins of the abandoned town are visible below the crystal blue surface. Also visible, when the water level is low, is an interesting “bathtub ring” along the shoreline.
An Oasis Amidst Three Deserts
Scenic Lake Mead is open year round with a wide variety of activities available to residents and vacationers. Activities like fishing, snorkeling, kayaking, swimming and jet skiing are enjoyed on the lake’s crystal clear waters. Hiking, exploring, birdwatching and wildlife observing are enjoyed on the lands surrounding the sparkling lake. With accommodating RV campgrounds and charming covered picnic areas available, tourists and locals relish Lake Mead’s family-friendly facilities and conveniences. There are miles of luminous caves, tropical-like coves and exquisite, natural beauty to explore.
In addition, three marinas offer fishing boats, jet skis and even full-service houseboats for rent. Entrance fees are low and the enjoyment is high. Whether vacationers stay for the day or enjoy a week there, Lake Mead is a hub of summer fun and family activities. To fortunate residents in Mark-Taylor’s Nevada communities, the beauty and enjoyment of Lake Mead are only 10 to 30 minutes away.
Three separate desert Eco-systems intersect at lovely Lake Mead: the Sonoran, Great Basin and Mojave deserts. The result is an amazing variety of plant and animal diversity. Explorers and hikers can see bighorn sheep, desert tortoises and Joshua Trees among the fascinating natural wonders present. Also included are Black Lava Rock and Red Stone that make up some of the lava buttes, many of which date back to as much as six million years.
Touring the History and Wonders of the Dam, the Lake and the Museum
Millions of tourists visit the area annually and take the scenic tours that include the Boulder Dam Museum, Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam. The Lake Mead Cruise and Hoover Dam Discovery tour is one of the more popular tours. Also popular are the Red Rock Canyon Tour and the Vegas Mini Baja Chase.
The Lake Mead Cruise and Hoover Dam Discovery tour presents an insider’s view of the dam followed by a leisurely tour of magnificent Lake Mead as seen from a traditional three-level paddle-wheel boat. The entire, fascinating, informative tour lasts a full 7.5 hours, possibly the best value of any tour imaginable at $30. Options include the Power Plant Tour, which presents a captivating tour of the dam along with access to the observation deck, the visitor’s center and the original Hoover Dam exhibit building.
A Fifty Year Old Mystery
One unique item in Lake Mead is something that lies at the bottom undiscovered for over 50 years. In the summer of 1948, a Boeing B-29 Superfortress disappeared into the blue waters of Lake Mead. It was on a classified mission. While its crew was safely rescued, the actual location of the downed aircraft, in over 250 feet deep water, remained a mystery for five decades.
Mark-Taylor’s residents have the extraordinary benefit of living in close proximity to such an important historical place and the surrounding beauty of Lake Mead. Year-round enjoyment is a short drive away!
