Lake Mead Welcomed 6.3 Million Visitors Last Year

The Lake Mead National Recreation Area welcomed 6.3 million visitors last year making it the sixth most visited national park, according to the National Park Service.

The most popular part of the park continues to be Boulder Basin with 1.6 million visitors going to the area by using U.S. Highway 93 in Boulder City. The park service says 1.2 million accessed the park through Lakeshore Road near Lake Las Vegas.

The park service says despite the 16-day government shutdown, which forced the park to close its doors, the number of visitors increased by 60,000 over last year.

This is the 75th year that Lake Mead has been ranked among the top 10 most visited sites. Golden Gate National Recreation Area is the most visited site.
