1. Lake Mead
Lake Mead is a man-made oasis in the middle of the dessert. If you are trying to beat the heat of summer, this is the best place to come. You can find both tent and RV camping options. You can even rent a houseboat that can accommodate up to 12 people. The boat is equipped with kitchen, dining, and bathroom facilities. In addition, more services are available like renting a fishing or ski boat or even a personal watercraft like a jetski.
