Lake Mohave Sand Hills Beach

Lake Mohave Sand Hills Beach

This Lake Mohave cove, located on the south end Arizona side has many long sandy beaches near the burned out wreckage of a large house boat.

There are hundreds of beaches that can only be accessed by boat. In the summer, boaters seek out their own private beach site for a base camp from which they then swim, water ski and relax.

Both narrow and shallow compared to Lake Mead, Lake Mohave lies between the Black Mountains to the east in northwestern Arizona, and the Eldorado and Newberry Mountains to the west in southern Nevada. Most of the lake’s length lies within the steep, narrow walls of Black, Eldorado, Painted, and Pyramid canyons. The northern section of the reservoir is constrained by the steep rock walls of Black Canyon for a length of 22 miles and is narrower than 300 ft in places. This portion of the reservoir is primarily riverine. South of Black Canyon, Lake Mohave gradually widens to nearly four miles in Cottonwood Basin. The transition between river and true reservoir conditions occurs in Eldorado Canyon, between Black Canyon and Cottonwood Basin.
