Cottonwood Cove Campground is a large desert campground located slightly inland on the Nevada side of Lake Mohave, and is one of three campgrounds on the lake. The campground is split between a larger upper campground has three main loops and is located further inland from the lake, and a smaller lower campground located closer to the water. Both the upper and lower campgrounds are suitable for tent and RV camping, but the lower campground is a little more private and better for tent camping. Boating is one of the primary reasons people camp at Cottonwood Cove Campground.

There are 145 campsites at Cottonwood Cove Campground for tent and RV camping, all of which offer full RV hookups as well as a picnic table, fire ring, and access to bathrooms with showers. A laundry facility is also available onsite. Supplies are available at the nearby Cottonwood Cove Marina and Resort. Tent camping in the summer is not recommended at Cottonwood Cove Campground due to the high temperatures.
