Lake Mohave History

Lake Mohave was created in 1951 following the construction of Davis Dam on the Colorado River southeast of Las Vegas.  The 64 mile long reservoir is subject to fluctuating water levels and exchange flows.  The upper 20 miles of the reservoir is cold year round due to deep-water releases from Hoover Dam. This section lies within the narrow walls of Black Canyon. The remainder of the reservoir is seasonally warm and more open with the widest section being Cottonwood Basin (4 miles). Lake Mohave is located within the Lake Mead Recreational Area and is administered by the National Park Service located in Boulder City. A detailed description of the Lake Mead Recreation Area can be found on the National Park Service web page at nps.gov/lame.
