When the air outside is sizzling you can either stay inside by an A/C (boring!) or grab the RV and roll up to Lake Mead for some swimming and lakeside camping to cut through the heat (winning!). Any time is a good time to visit Temple Bar Campground for year-round, RV friendly (full hook-ups!) camping overlooking the Lake. Boat or no boat, you will appreciate the scenic beauty of the desert landscapes, the peaceful evenings, the stellar sunsets, and the floating and swimming to be had on the water. Let the desert seduce you!
