Awe-Inspiring Adventures at Nelson’s Landing on Lake Mohave, Nevada

If it’s excitement you’re craving while soaking up the sun, Nelson’s landing located along Nevada State Route 165 has it all, from swimming in the crystal clear water, to embracing your inner daredevil with 50 ft. cliff jumping into the Colorado River reservoir Lake Mohave.
“Jumping off the cliff is tons of fun. I think everyone should do it at least once because if you do it and you like it, then you can continue to jump off. But if you don’t like it, then at least you can say you did it,” said a recent Nelson’s Landing visitor.
