Callville Bay Campground is a large campground with three loops on the western shore of Lake Mead National Recreation Area, and is one of several campgrounds on the lake. There are 80 campsites at Callville Bay Campground. The campsites are shaded by a mix of oleanders and cottonwood trees. A marina with a small store, restaurant, and bar is adjacent to the campground.

Each campsite at Callville Bay comes with picnic tables, fire rings, and access to bathrooms and flush toilets.

The drought from the last several years has taken a toll on Lake Mead. Water levels are much lower in the summer, and some boat ramps may be unusable.
