Willow Beach Campground at Lake Mohave National Recreation Area sits near the eastern shore of the upper end of the lake, below the Hoover Dam. The small campground is located about half a mile inland along the 67-mile long, narrow lake made by a portion of the Colorado River that partially separates Southern Nevada and Northern Arizona. Where Willow Beach Campground is located on Lake Mohave, the Colorado River is still a river and not really a lake and is popular with boaters and anglers.

The campground offers 29 developed campsites for RV and tent camping, and 9 campsites for tent-only camping. Supplies are readily available at the nearby Willow Beach Marina. The RV-friendly campsites offer spacious paved spots for parking and full hookups next to the campsites while the tent campsites are all large walk-in campsites. All of the campsites include a fire ring, picnic table, and access to bathrooms. Camping in the summer is not recommended at Willow Beach Campground due to the high temperatures.
