Lake Mead National Recreation Area and the Hoover Damn were an amazing experience for us to see. Only about an hour ride from the Laughlin Casino strip it was well worth the ride to visit

Long walk for a pretty average picture. Nothing special along path, bland scenery and can be hot. Good workout if your in shape.

A must see for anyone in the area. We didn't visit it this last time; but have been there before. This winter we will refresh our memories.

Worth bicycling up the steep hill to get the view from atop the dam! Wish there was more of a designated bike/walking path going down the Arizona side to make it a longer journey. Great (and not crowded) park where you could park and walk up too.

The Davis Dam becomes somewhat accessible by car but you can look not touch.since 911 security around dam is strong.however you can picnic under shade and just unjoy the wonderment of all the water flowing thru the turbines.

I liked this tour because it was on a Paddle-wheeler and the tour operator told you all about the history of the area about Don Laughlin you made Laughlin, and the Davis dam was great to see.

There is a nice walkway all the way from Laughlin proper to the dam. There is water for people and pets along the way. Even horse paths along the way.

Just a very short drive north (10 Minutes) of Laughlin to Davis Dam will give you a great view of just a small part of this huge Lake Mohave..
