Land for the Meadview development was purchased in 1960. Portions of that land were later determined to be inside the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and that land was exchanged for inland parcels. Meadview now has around 900 homes with some 2500 residents. Visitors come thousands of miles from thousands of places to visit Meadview, not only for Lake Mead, but also for its closeness to the Grand Canyon as well as the Hoover Dam.

Lake Mead

Lake Mead is a man made lake that lies on the Colorado river and is the largest reservoir in the United states in terms of capacity. It has diverse activities such as boating, hiking, camping and fishing. It contains 1.5millon acres of mountains and canyon and has two vast lakes for guest to explore.



While the fishing is generally good all year round, the best fishing on Lake Mead is in April, May and June. At this time the striped bass, and large and small mouth bass move out of deep water to shallow water areas that are better suited for spawning. They will feed on shad, minnows, blue gill and crawfish found off ledges, points and reefs.  Click below for more Lake Mead Fishing info.

The unique "Gold Basin" meteorite exploded over more than 50 square miles. A small field team from Tucson, including a retired civil engineering professor who discovered the meteorite, began collecting pieces of the find in 1996. But it will take years to gather the remaining stones and assemble the details of what happened, according to The University of Arizona scientist who is part of the team working to recover the entire meteorite.

The Meteorite itself was carbon dated and found to be around 15,000 years old and has survived the Ice Age. Preliminary evidence predicts that the asteroid may have been 6-9 feet in diameter, but exploded probably 6-18 miles above the ground. It hit the earth's atmosphere with an energy of between 10-1000 tons of TNT.Today Fragments are still being found and collected across the area. More than 3,000 fragments have been found so far and scientist estimate there could be thousands more.

Who knows maybe you'll find one of these fallen stars.
