Lake Mead National Recreation AreaLake Mead is located on the Colorado River, approximately 30  miles southest of Las Vegas, in the States of Nevada and  Arizona. The many marinas and coves can be accessed from North  Shore Road, Lake Shore Road, and Highway 93 in Nevada, and  several roads in Arizona. Many of the more seclued coves do not have road  access, you can reach them only by boat.

Lake Mead was formed when Hoover Dam was built in the 1930's, and the forming of Lake Mead meant the end to a small town in Overton, St. Thomas. St. Thomas was  a thriving community settlled by Mormon Pioneers.
