Dry camp and Full Hookups - tent and RV
|National Park Campgrounds within the Lake Mead National Park
are for dry camping (no electricity or sewer). These
inexpensive campgrounds offer restrooms, water spigots,
tables, trash cans and BBQ's. These amenities are not at every
campsite so choosing your site is important depending on what's
important to you, such as a BBQ, etc. Below, you can download a pdf map of each of the National Park campgrounds that show locations of
these amenities. Camping at a NPS is $10/night, no reservations are
taken, first come first serve. There may be a host to check-in and
get information, but not always.
Simply select an empty campsite, put your money in an envelope with
your name and site info, then put it in the NPS PayStation box at the
entrance. Bring CASH.
Full hookup campgrounds are also offered
at and near Lake Mead.
Most marinas offer a few full hookup sites but it can be difficult to
reserve because there are so few. The exception to this is the
Lake Mead RV Village near Lake Mead Marina, as well as
an RV park in Meadview
at the East end of the lake, just outside the national park. These
two facilities have a good number of
full hookup sites and it's usually easy to get a reservation.

shade and a windbreak for campers. Please do not cut or damage these
trees. It is illegal to cut or damage any tree in a National Park.
