Lake Mead National Recreation Area is the 6th most visited National Recreation Area in America and has consistently stayed in the Top 10 since 1938. In 2018, Lake Mead welcomed 7.5 million visitors to the 1.5 million acres of park, many of them drawn to the 290 square miles of waterway that, when full, is one of the largest water reservoirs in the United States.
