#2 Nelsons Landing Cliff Jumping
Nelson’s Landing is know for more then just is’t Ghost Town….who can resist this awesome jump off point into the clear waters of Lake Mead? Tips: Wear your shoes when you jump, climbing out of the water onto the beach will make your bare feet sore and raw. Pack it in, Pack it out! Keep this treasure clean for everyone. There are free showers available to those who would like to wash off and there is NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED. There are plenty of park rangers patrolling the area and yes, cliff jumping is perfectly legal.

#5 Gold Strike Hot Springs
Okay, I’ll admit it…this isn’t in or on Lake Mead. But it’s close and just below the Hoover Dam on the Colorado River. From the Lake Mead Visitor Center, follow US Hwy 93 east 8.4 miles (4.2 miles past Hoover Dam). Watch for the sign to the trailhead. Park at the treailhead and walk down the hill and under the highway. Continue down wash to the river. Follow this wash downhill to the river, then follow the river 1/4 mile south over the hill where you will find the hot springs up the side canyon. Warning: A 20′ ladder must be climbed to reach the best hot springs.
