this is a good thread to follow and see how low the lake really is....sounds like if you were camping in boulder campground then you were in boulder basin....none of the marinas are where they used to be or they are closed down...govt wash is closed down, and lake mead marina no longer exist...it is now called boulder harbor, and they call lake mead marina were they moved it to is called hemmingway...overton no longer exist, and i dont think echo is going to make it much longer either...we really need something to happen otherwise it will be a river again

they keep every lake sustained at a certain water level except mead!!!! powel actually releases us the most water for us to hold, but im guessing that the water released from mead is all for pleasure, but mostly for farming...why they dont sustain mead is beyond me, but if they turned mead into a river again it wouldnt bother me....less boat traffic
