So much to see
Mar 2020
This lake is so clear, you can easily see the bottom 15 feet down, there are many things to see on and around this huge lake. Sandy beaches, the back of the davis dam, the sleeping warrior, camp grounds, a wrecked houseboat and many others. there are toilet facilities in many areas around the lake as well. the water is very cold but feels refreshing on a hot day.

Pretty view
Jan 2020
Beautiful Lake and a nice view. We drove up to the area after a day of sightseeing. The dam there is Davis Dam and the road traveling over it is closed to traffic.

Enjoyed our day trip in this area
Nov 2019 • Family
If you are visiting a nearby town it is worth the visit. There is so much to do, and the sites are spectacular. Our day started out sunny, but even through a rainstorm we enjoyed it! Plus we got spectacular pictures just before the storm.

This lake is spectacular! We rented a speed boat (the boat we rented was old and dinghy but ran good) there was so much to see!! The water was a clear as the Caribbean I swear! I highly recommend going if you are new to seeing lakes on the west coast. I was blown away

Mojave lake hide away
Sep 2019 • Family
Awesome lake,, I take my 18ft open bow searay every chance I get,, fee is cheap and you pay by the week,, we go about 5 miles out and always find hidden coves to set up camp and just chill sometimes up to a week,, only draw back is when we decide to go ashore at the docks in Cathrine landing,, be careful because not all docks are for boaters, most are private or for the rentals,, it's safer just to pull your boat out and go to town to gamble lol,, water temp is nice most of the year,,,

Crowded in summer
Sep 2019 • Friends
This is a beautiful lake and is local to us. For nine months it is peaceful and clean. We go kayaking, boating and fishing. When summer hits it's best to be off the lake by midmorning when the tourists hit. They tend to be large groups with very loud music and they don't clean up their trash. They can also be pretty dangerous on their watercraft. If you do stay out find a secluded cove to try to escape some of this.

Checking on fishing
Oct 2019
We checked on the price of boat slips and also on renting a fishing boat for the day. It was too windy the day we went so could not go out on the lake.

Lake Mojave and Laughlin
Aug 2019 • Friends
We stayed in the hotels in Laughlin and drove to Lake Mojave with our Sea Doo a couple of times that week. We launched the Sea-Doo at Katherine's landing and had them meet us at the cove area we had chosen. The cove area we chose was only accessible by 4 by 4 vehicle which was really nice it was not crowded, super clean and the water was clear. I do recommend water shoes since there are small rocks in the lake that make it uncomfortable to walk into the lake. The lake water was Super warm due to the high temperature that week of 121-115 degree weather.
We payed for a vehicle pass and boat pass for the week since we were coming to the lake every other day that week.
Take trash bags to put your trash in to leave the areas clean. You will need a canopy or umbrella for shade and chairs to sit and a cooler for drinks to stay hydrated.

Kayaking within a beautiful place
Sep 2019
Where else can you kayak under the full moon and be serenaded by wild burros and coyotes. Only in the Mohave Desert within the Lake Mead National Rec area of Lake Mohave. I kayak regularly from Davis Dam, Katherines Landing, Telephone Cove, Princess Cove, Cabinsite Cove, Carp Cove, Pot Cove, Cottonwood Cove, Willow Beach and the list goes on. Always a beautiful paddle.

I often swim under the newly re-established beach at Katherines where they have Dive-in movies in the summer. Check out their schedule.
Lake Mohave even has accommodations for boaters with disabilities. Yes, there are restroom on the lake that have ADA accessibility.

Always be cautious of the wind. I check NOAA before going out and pay attention to the flag warnings at Katherines. Sometimes the flags are not quickly handled at other coves. When kayaking be cautious of the boaters and wave runners that do not abide by no wake zones and staying there distance. Please pack it in, pack it out. I seem to have a never ending job of trying to clean up others trash each time we are out.

We had a family group of 30 people ranging in age of 12 to 72. We rented 3 houseboats from Cottonwood Cove. We had 2 ski boats and 3 wave runners. We had a fantastic time. The employees of Cottonwood Cove drove ahead of us and found a cove big enough to accommodate 3 large houseboats, they were so friendly and helpful the entire trip of 5 days. The only things we didn’t like were the rocky shore and the 109 degrees of heat.
