Remember last week when I complained about the “lakeside” camping at Government Wash that is anything but lakeside these days? Well, I can now confirm that despite the record low water, it is possible to park your rig right on the edge of Lake Mead.
This scenic spot is called Stewarts Point and it’s located on the Overton Arm of Lake Mead way up at the northern end of the lake. The area is inside the Lake Mead Recreation Area, and as such free camping is allowed with a 15 day limit. There are no facilities here (aside from one pit toilet), and the nearest services are about 20 minutes away in Overton where you will find a small grocery store, a few gas stations and not much else. But the Verizon signal is strong, the views outstanding, and the crowds non-existent.
The very best spots here require navigating a maze of narrow roads with some bumpy spots, but nothing that requires 4WD (unless you venture way to the right where you will encounter some loose gravel and soft terrain).
