Originally established in 1935 as the Boulder Dam Recreation area, Lake Mead National Recreation Area (LMNRA; est  1964) is the first national recreation area established by the US Congress. The LMNRA covers Lake Mead. Lake Mojave, and nearly 1.5 million acres of land; The area also includes some lands and structures operated and/or maintained by the Bureau of Reclamation, and the Bureau of Land Management.

LMNRA provides the recreation part of Lake Mead, not the hydroelectric and water management (provided by Bureau of Reclamation).  The services are boating, swimming, and fishing, there are plenty of hiking trails, and other places to explore in the LMNRA.
