las vegas atv tour lake mead

Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam are iconic locations only about a half hour’s drive southwest of Las Vegas. The area is a must-stop location when you visit the Sin City. Here, you can take a break from the lights and glitz and enjoy some outdoor recreation with spectacular natural scenery. A total of five marinas serves Lake Mead together with Lake Mohave (below the Hoover Dam) helping to provide year-round boating and water sports. And if you are a land lover, the adjacent shores will give you an opportunity for camping, hiking, or an awesome Las Vegas ATV tour!

ATV Tours

Las Vegas ATV tours give visitors an opportunity for an up-close look at the natural beauty of the Lake Mead National Park. They experience a fun ride while learning about the park, the Colorado River, and the Eldorado Canyon mines. The tours make stops along the way for photo and video opportunities and in hot weather a cool splash in the river.


Water lovers will find many ways to enjoy Lake Mead from kayaking to power-wheeler dinner cruises. Water-skiers, wakeboarders, tubers pulled by power boats, and boaters with all sorts of watercraft can be spotted at any time. No matter how they enjoy the lake, everyone takes the time to dock and hike on the shores. They either go with a hiking guide or explore trails on their own.


Over 87 percent of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area is a protected area of the Eastern Mojave Desert. By foot is a great way to explore the diverse ecosystem, canyons, and colorful rock formations. Hikes guided by Rangers are offered all year with the summer ones taking place in the evenings. Summer daytime hiking is not recommended because of the heat.


Many visitors choose to extend their visit to the Lake Mead area by camping out. Fortunately for them, there are several great campsites available. Sites are available on a first-come basis with no reservation needed. Fees are posted at campground entrances.
