Boxcar Cove and other locations in Lake Mead area

We are planning our first venture next month and will be in the Vegas/Lake Mead area. I am focusing on national parks or similar in the Lake Mead area. Has anyone stayed at Boxcar Cove? What little I've read/found on this has been that Boxcar is preferred over Government Wash. Would appreciate feedback from any who have had experience with either of these.

Have also been reading about NP campgrounds such as Las Vegas Bay, Callville Bay, Echo Bay, etc. I got a little confused as on some, e.g. Callville, as there is an RV park run by concessionaire as well as the dry camping NP campground and I called the wrong one to get some info. Anyway, would be interested in hearing feedback on the dry camping ones such as these or others as well.

There was another thread on NV campgrounds where there was some great info and links. Just wanted to get a bit of info/experience with some of the other spots that were not specifically mentioned there. Thanks so much to Wheeling It for your awesome blog entries that were linked on the NV thread regarding this area as far as hikes, etc.! This is an awesome forum! Thanks so much to all who are so willing to share! It is a huge help to those of us brand new to RVing! We are very excited to get going!

Don't mean to insult your intelligence, but the voice of experience says to ensure that your length of rig is included in your campground search.

No insult taken. I appreciate your thought as it is sometimes easy to overlook the obvious. We are looking at length and aware that there are length restrictions, etc. I'm finding that on NPs that is not always listed. I made a few calls yesterday and also found that the person on the other end of the line does not always know about that for sure either. Our plan for this first venture is to gather as much info as we can ahead of time. Then upon arrival in the area we will stay somewhere overnight and take the car meanwhile and explore some of these places to see them firsthand and we'll take it from there. Some of the ones we are targeting may be completely out of the question once we see them. We are prepared for that. It will be a huge learning experience, needless to say!

Please keep in mind that Lake Mead is significantly lower now due to drought, etc.

Yes, I've read that about the lake. It was shocking to see the same in some areas of Colorado when we were visiting there a year or so ago. While views of the lake would of course be a great bonus, our main focus is that we want to be out of town and not in the big RV parks - quiet and peaceful and close to nature.
