Located a short distance from the Las Vegas Strip in Lake Mead National Recreation Area, the Black Canyon, is truly one of those unique places to visit. This canyon, formed by the Colorado River, lies just below the mighty Hoover Dam where the canyon walls rise nearly 2,000 feet from the river's edge.
The exquisite Black Canyon region varies from sheer cliffs of multicolored rocks to sandy beaches and secluded coves, is a premier location for your favorite outdoor activity. Whether hiking, rafting, boating or fishing, enjoy the warm desert sun year 'round as you explore more than 235 miles of shoreline.
This beautiful geological area is conducive to wonderful photographic opportunities and wildlife watching with Big Horn Sheep and the Great Blue Heron native to the area. And the best part is that even when your raft tour is complete, the fun doesn't have to stop! Be sure to inquire about our kayak and watercraft rental options located at Willow Beach.
