This is a nice way to spend a day away from Las Vegas, beautiful views and the possibility to swim or sail. The Park has small cafes to get a bite to eat

About an hour or so outside of Vegas - super easy drive and spectacular sites. We loved seeing antelope who were not afraid so allowed us to get plenty of pics! Great for all ages and hiking skill levels

One of the most tranquil and clean places I've ever seen. There is also a pretty interesting visitor center that has some cool stuff in it and a reasonable priced gift shop. A great place to take some scenic photographs.

Weekly visitor to the LMRA. Easy to find a decent dog play area early in the morning that doesn't conflict with anyone else. Garbage obvious particular after weekend which is quite sad. Yes broken bottles too so be aware. No sand beaches with road access....More
