Lakes are just for boating, right? Not necessarily! There are several activities on and around the lake that you may not have even considered. Check out these five interesting and fun things you didn’t know you could do around Lake Mead Marina.

  1. Scuba Dive

Did you know that Lake Mead is often recognized as one of the best freshwater lakes for scuba diving? Pack up (or rent) your gear and explore the lake in a unique way. From wreckage to hidden underwater caves, you can spend hours scouring beneath the surface with your buddies.

  1. Bike

The River Mountains Loop Trail is the perfect place for runners and bicyclists near Lake Mead. This non-motorized paved trail offers some of the best scenic views of the Mojave Desert. It’s approximately 34 miles long and loops around the River Mountains. If you’re looking for even more bike-friendly paths, keep an eye out for backcountry roads with a yellow arrow sign with a number on it.

  1. Go Horseback Camping

Along with hiking trails, there are plenty of routes suitable for horseback riding in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Plan to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and spend a few days exploring the trails atop your trusty steed. It’s important to read about the limitations before you go, though.

  1. Rent a Houseboat

If “glamping” is more your style, then you’ll love houseboating. You get to enjoy all the comforts of home while being only steps away from nature. Renting a houseboat is also a great way to spend time with the family. Imagine telling your kids they get to sleep on a boat! Create long lasting memories for your whole crew by renting a houseboat at Callville Bay Marina.

  1. Take a River Raft Tour

Switch up your usual hiking trip and experience a serene float down the Colorado River. Climb aboard a motor assisted raft that begins just below the Hoover Dam and finishes at Willow Beach. Along the way, keep an eye out for Bighorn Sheep (they love to make an appearance!) Your friendly tour guide at Black Canyon River Adventures will maneuver the raft while you sit back and take in the gorgeous scenery.
