Boulder Beach is a very scenic place to dry camp overlooking Lake Mead. The trees and foliage make it feel like an oasis and provide a bit of privacy and separation between some sites. We were there in winter and it was pretty chilly at night but I'm sure it would be intolerably hot in the summer without the trees for shade. Plus it attracts lots of birds who flit round in them, much to our entertainment.
Even with short days and some shade, we were able to generate enough solar power. We Had to manage it a little but we didn’t struggle.
Navigating the loops was no problem with our 50+ foot bumper pull. Sites are level and pretty generous. We had plenty of room in our pull-through to unhook the truck as well as unload our sidecar from the toy hauler. The sites are equipped with fire pits as well as those massive national park concrete tables.
The campground as a whole is well-maintained and clean. Water spigots are readily available. We were even able to stretch a hose to one to fill the trailer without moving. There was no potable water available at the dump station during our stay. It looks like there was some issue and it was cut off -- not sure if that was temporary or permanent. But again, plenty of water access in the campground loops.
The restrooms are standard issue national park style with stalls and sinks but no soap. They are cleaned thoroughly daily.
We had no issue finding a site in the off-season but I imagine it's super busy other times of the year.
It's a nice walk down to the lake and along the foot path past the ruins of the Hualapai Lodge. It’s well worth a stroll to take in the scenery and history.
NOTE: there seems to be a lot of confusion between this national park campground and the Lake Mead RV Village next door that offers full hookups. So read the reviews carefully to make sure you’re looking for info on the right one.
