Description:

Located 8 miles north of the City of Laughlin on the Nevada side and 10 miles north of Bullhead City on the Arizona side of the Colorado River. Lake Mohave resulted from the construction of Davis Dam which spans the Colorado River below Hoover Dam, a portion of the Boulder Canyon Project. On the Arizona side of the river and managed by the Mohave County Parks Department (1-877-757-0915) is Davis Dam Camp, a campground and day use area well appointed for the physically challenged angler and also has boat launching facilities, numerous campsites, RV hookups, and picnic areas. Davis Dam Camp was built to house the workers who constructed Davis Dam. A few of the original camp buildings remain, although they have been altered. Available fish species include rainbow trout, striped bass, and catfish. The City of Laughlin has numerous casinos, lodging, eating establishment, and entertainment.Parker Dam and Davis Dam (originally named Bullshead) comprise the Parker-Davis Project.
