Las Vegas Bay Campground has 86 campsites on the western side of Lake Mead National Recreation Area, with spaces for tent and RV camping. Las Vegas Bay Campground is situated on a cliff above the lake, and does not have direct access to the lake like nearby Boulder Beach Campground. The marina is about a mile and a half away, but it does have a small store, restaurant, and bar.
Each campsite at Las Vegas Bay Campground 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.
