Highlight: Callville Wash North Trail
Callville Wash Trails are located east of Las Vegas in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area(LMNRA). It is located near the historical site of Fort Callville. The LMNRA, operated by the National Park Service is located in both Nevada and Arizona. It follows the Colorado River corridor. The LMNRA includes Lake Mead and Lake Mohave, both reservoirs created by Hoover and Davis Dams plus their surrounding areas. Lake Mead was formed in 1935, less than a year before Hoover Dam construction was finished. In 1964, Congress approved the expanded area as the first National Recreation Area. Sent by Brigham Young, Anson Call established Callville, as an outpost for the Mormon settlement, in December of 1864. Callville was used as a military fort/garrison. In 1869, the garrison was shut down, due to the end of the war and lack of conflict with the Native Americans. After the railroads were completed linking the coasts, it made Callville obsolete and was abandoned. Structures could still be seen in the 1930s until the Colorado River was dammed to allow the filling of Lake Mead. Callville Bay Resort and Marina closely located to the historic site.
