Meadview Store and Gas Station

On the far east end of Lake Mead is a small community called Meadview.  It is very likely you have never heard of it because it's a well kept secret by those want to keep that area of the lake quite for themselves.  If you're coming from Phoenix, this is the closest area to go to launch your boat on Lake Mead.   If coming from Vegas or Los Angeles, it's well worth the drive to get away from the crowds during the summer season, especially if you plan to stay longer than a weekend.  Meadview has motels, stores, gas, an RV Park, practically all the basics you will need.  But the nearest marina is 15 miles from the South Cove launch ramp...... which keeps things quite.

Above I'm gassing up my boat at Meadview Market after a weekend of fun.  If you're considering a visit to the east-lake area and want a weather report, call the Meadview Exxon/Market, (520) 564-2290.  They are the nicest people and can help you with almost any questions about the area.  The appearance of this market is deceiving, you'll find they have almost everything, including an ATM machine.

Joshua Tree Forest

Perched high upon the desert plain Meadview is host to one the largest Joshua tree forests in the country.  There are miles of these trees up to 13' tall, as far as you can see.  This picture doesn't do the forest justice, just wait till you see them. 

 

Fantastic view of lake mead, don't miss this

When visiting Meadview don't miss the chance to get a picture from this incredible vantage point on Pearce Rd just outside Meadview which is at about 3000' elevation.  With Lake Mead at 1200' elevation (full pool) that puts you way up there, 1800' higher than the lake.   You've probably already guessed that Meadview's town name was derived from this picturesque "view of Lake Mead".   In the distance you can even see the water of Overton Arm, about 20 miles from this high viewpoint.  Temple basin is about 13 miles away.
